    Who will be the LAST carrot?

    I've just been thinking about this lately, so I thought I'd pose the question to you all. Who will be the last MOTUC carrot? ...Or in other words, who will be the LAST "most wanted figure" that will be saved for the latter half, of the last year of this line, in order to entice subscribers to continue their sub for the last year, and to keep fans in general, collecting this line till the end, until they get their long-awaited __________ figure?

    ...Dare I even say, "Sorceress" or "Ram-Man" or "Spikor" or "QueenMarlena" or "Fisto" or "Jitsu" or.... So who do you think the LAST carrot will be? (All I can say is it better not be the Sorceress! )

    Ram-Man. Sorceress has a major variant (MYP Sorceress), a couple of minor variants (NA minicomic Sorceress, various repaints) and a derivative character (Veena) that they'll want to do the "main" version of her before. Ram-Man has only a slightly different colour scheme (of the sort that they'd do as a TRU two-pack rather than a MC quarterly variant right now) and is a "unique tool". There's no incentive to do him any time soon unless they change their minds about wanting to hold some characters back.

    I think it's a pretty safe bet that, to keep us in it 'til the end, that the "last carrot" is going to be the Sorceress. I mean really, who else could it be? She's the real last heavy hitter any era of this line has.

    I Believe that it's The Sorceress... Last time they made her was at the end of the line. The second MOTU comeback died without a Sorceress... (Stactions don't count)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Well, that would be ending the line with a bang! Though I'd like to think that we'll get Grayskull sooner... so let's switch that line-ender to Snake Mountain, okay?

    So you think they'll do three Sorceresses + Veena in three months at the end of the line then, hmmm?

    With my luck it'll be Spikor, who was one of my favorites as a kid that I carried around more than most of the others. Oh and we haven't seen him since the 80s. He HAS been ranking pretty high in the MOTUC Idol threads.

    I think it would be appropriate for it to be Sorceress in classic toy style, but that would go against the Mattel plan to have variants follow the main design of a character.....

    I will go with a guess that is a bit out of left field:
    Last monthly figure: Two Badd - It will be too bad when the line ends afterall Sorry for the stupid pun!

    I think the last variant will be the Spirit of Grayskull in a different transparent color than the original to keep that version unique. Since he started the line off, it would be appropriate that he finish it off too.

    My immediate thought was the Sorceress, but I didn't think about the variants. So.. I'm fearful it's Two-Bad. He's an awesome figure that not many people are clamoring for right now.. but I imagine he'll only get more popular as other favorites are released. In other words, I think Two-Bad is a lot of people's #2 pick!

    This is exactly why I think they WILL get to her before too long. That, and that she has at least three variants besides the classic 80's/Filmation figure. She is a character that many will buy different versions of. I'm actually shocked they haven't released her yet.

    And here's the thing. Man-E has long been rumored to be a "withheld" figure. Many speculated that if/when he appeared it would be to sell a subscription, and that turned out not to be true. Maybe Mattel/TG has faith in the secondary characters, as well as the principles?

    LOL.... he is in the Top 3 of my vintage MOTU poll as well... he gives Stinkor, Two Bad, and the Sorceress a run for their money.

    I'm thinking it will probably be Ram Man (or hopefully) they'll garner fresh interest in the line by announcing Shadow Weaver as their first Filmation figure.

    I think they could... but not necessarily the last three months of the line
    They toss out 200X Sorceress as the SDCC exclusive (Vintage colors for con goers, normal 200X colors for Matty) (of the next to last MOTUC year.) Then they use Veena and Sorceress as Sub bait (Wouldn't be surprised if Sorceress starts shifting slots due to issues and ends up the last MOTUC figure). The NA sorceress could be used as the Sub incentive...

    Just cause I can picture them doing it DOES NOT MEAN that I WANT this to happen. Heck I want my prediction to fail and have Sorceress as one of the figs shown at this year's SDCC!
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Oh come on, we all know that it's gonna be the Sorceross, cause she's ALWAYS at the end of the line.

    I dunno. I think it would **** off too many fans if it were the Sorceress, so I really don't think it will be her. And like someone mentioned, Spikor hasn't had a figure since the original line, so again, I think it would **** off too many fans if it were him (I'm actually hoping to see him at this years SDCC.)

    Now Ram-Man on the other hand, has had a figure, a repaint, and a McDonald's toy since his original figure, plus he will require a unique sculpt, so I hate to say it, but he therefore seems like a great contender to be the last carrot.
