    I THINK what he was going for... is that if She-ra had been January... then the next female will be may...

    only 5 months.

    Which I think is more than fair...


    Considering that so far, (other than sorceress) we already have ALL the Motu female figures... and She-ra/adora... and even Goddess made...

    PoP has been a little light... but the female to male ratio has been pretty high considering the few figures we get at a time... At least compared to the Male heavy ratios that MOTU naturally is...


    Especially considering the first year was really only the 12 monthly characters... it's moving along. Now with the massive increase in figures... and 2 packs, and beasts and bonuses... I'm sure we'lll be seeing more PoP.

    2017? This line will be 9 years old by then. That's crazy. I want it to last that long, but how many figures will that be? Roughly 16 figures a year times 9 years equals 144. Not counting SDCC figures and army builders.
    END OF LINE

    Or beasts, vehicles, or diorama pieces, or perhaps any playsets.

    The line might be planned until 2017, but there's no guarantee it will make it. Apart from the usual issues (i.e. lack on interest), it means that there would have to be no new MOTU projects up until then.

    What's with all the Debbie downers in this thread? Of course it isn't guaranteed, but it's great news that ToyGuru and higher ups are that ambitious.

    That is awesome news that they have things planned out for 2017! Perhaps a movie will finally get made between now and then and boost things up a bit!

    It'd turn every announcement into a "Meh", and every slippage into a crisis.

    I still hope they add in newly created charaters. I don't want to see the line end at all
    Put together from these and this

    Done & formally announced:
    • "Vintage MotU toy" figure redos (23): He-Man, Beast-Man, Skeletor, Stratos, Faker, Mer-Man, Zodac, Hordak, Man-at-Arms, Tri-Klops, Webstor, Teela, Scare Glow, King Randor, Trap-Jaw, Moss-Man, Evil-Lyn, Orko, Prince Adam, Whiplash. Grizzlor, Buzz-Off, King Hiss*, Sy-Klone*
    • "Vintage" concept art/minicomic/prototype figures (4): He-Ro, Goddess, Wun-Dar, Vikor*
    • "Vintage PoP toy" figure redos (2): She-Ra, Bow*
    • PoP cartoon/concept art/prototype figures (1): Adora
    • NA-original characters (1): Optikk
    • MYP/200X-original characters (5)**: King Grayskull, Zodak, Keldor, Count Marzo, Chief Carnivus


    *Announced but unreleased
    **Yes, I realise you could argue about whether Marzo was "MYP original". Point is, he shares a name and practically nothing else with the Filmation character...

    To-do:
    • "Vintage MotU toy" figure redos (35): Sorceress, Man-E-Faces, Ram Man, Mekaneck, Fisto, Blade, Blast-Attak, Clamp Champ, Clawful, Dragstor, Extendar, Gwildor, Horde Trooper, Jitsu, Kobra Khan, Leech, Mantenna, Modulok, Mosquitor, Multi-bot, Ninjor, Rattlor, Rio Blast, Rokkon, Rotarr, Saurod, Snake Face, Snout Spout, Spikor, SSSqueeze, Stinkor, Stondar, Tung Lashor, Twistoid, Two Bad
    • "Vintage" concept art/minicomic/prototype figures (minimum 4, lots more possible depending on how deep they're prepared to dig): Demo-Man, Lodar, Eldor, Sharella
    • "Vintage PoP toy" figure redos (14 + 2 "pack-in-sized"): Castaspella, Catra, Double Trouble, Entrapta, Flutterina, Frosta, Glimmer, Mermista, Netossa, Peekablue, Perfuma, Queen Angella, Spinnerella, Sweet Bee, Kowl {small figure}, Loo-Kee {small figure}
    • PoP cartoon/concept art/prototype figures (3): Jewelstar (Star Sister), Starla (Star Sister), Tallstar (Star Sister)
    • NA-original characters (17): Artilla/Weaponstronic, Butthead, Darius {prototype/comic}, Flipshot/Icarius, Flogg/Brakk, Hoove, Hydron, Karatti, Kayo/Tatarus, Lizorr, Nocturna, Quakke/Earthquake, Slush Head/Kalamarr, Spinwit/Tornado, Staghorn, Tuskador/Insyzor, Vizar
    • MYP cartoon & 200X toy-original characters (minimum 15): Faceless One, Baddrah, Calix, Dekker, Evilseed, Hawke, King Miro, King Taurius, Lord Dactys, Oracle, Prahvus, Queen Andreeno, Stingrad, Tuvar, Veena


    For a crude count, that gives 35+4+14+3+17+15=88. Or seven years and four months of monthly figures starting in May 2010, which takes us up to August 2017 already. And there are plenty of MYP and concept characters I didn't mention, since I wanted to err on the side of caution - similarly, I didn't count Meteorbs, Filmation, DC or MVC, and barely counted the minicomics.

    They'll make into 2018 easily if the line survives that far into the future.

    This is good news from TG so I don't want to be seen knocking it ... but something isn't all it seems. If I recall last time we heard of all the vintage MOTU/POP/NA toys released only some of the human NA toys were slotted likely to slip into 2017.

    Since that time we have a secure schedule of extra (quarterly) figures, army builders in the beast slots and surprises like the Orko/Adam SDCC 2 pack meaning there are more figures being released each year.

    And now some of the POP ladies have slipped back into 2017 with the NA humans?

    Seems fishy if nothing except 'logistics' has changed!

    I hope this means there are a heap of new and additional figures Matty have added to the potential production list that justify this filling out of the line through 2017. 200x King Hiss better be one of the added on figures. I wonder whom else?

    Yeah, I'm a little confused as to whether he means by the time 2017 gets here, all the POP characters will have been released, or that 2017 will see the release of the last POP needed to complete all the characters from the vintage line. (Not including variants, I imagine.)
    PRAISE HESTIA!!!

    The 2017 news was thrilling for a minute, then I saw it from this perspective... I hope it's not true.

    No, we still don't have a Sorceress.

How could that hurt and it would stop the constant rumblings about when/if someone is going to be made. It would also open up collector feedback on things we would like to see in a figure. Crazy, but wishful thinking.
    I understand where your coming from, and my need to know almost agrees with you, but I love the thrill of getting figures and awaiting what might come next Like the reveal at Comic Con. Now give me a year or 6 month release schedule would be nice, so I could at least plan to save more money on certain months, like Army Builder months. I need $520 for that month. Which is insane for me. If I am to get my 24 Horde Troopers, my 10 max = $400, plus my double sub $40 for two bonus figures and $80 for 2 packs of Horde Troopers plus shipping is more like $550. More than 3 months notice would be great Mattel!!!

    I'm not sure if the question is best asked on another thread, but if they plan on going till 2017 and a movie comes out in say 2014, is anyone willing to support another line of toys when we have invested so much into this one. And will the lack of support due to that fact hurt our beloved line from making it to 2017?

    2017... I'm not sure I'll be able to maintain interest until then... Unless the figures are still the same or better quality and without too much of a price hike. But i'm not sure if there are enough characters for me personally to complete a collection of that many figures!
