I hope the answer about Clawful was just a bit of misdirection. He has been my most-wanted figure since this line started. Whenever he finally comes out, it won't be a moment too soon.

I'm hoping for a new Clawful soon. He is an awseome character and Skeletor needs his henchmen.
I am 100% behind every vintage toy (inc 200X & Concept) being released in MOTUC style, Im happy with Royal Swiftwind and am thrilled with TG saying that 'Classic' SW will hopefully get a release down the track. And I would love it if at some point they did a filmation SW for the fans of that era.
I did call the dentist a waste of plastic, and I still passionately feel that way. I feel the money would have been better spent on Flocking for Panthor, or Tooling for Ram Man.
the reason for my frustration is that I -who wants everyone to to get what they want in MOTUC- truly dont understand when people say things like 'No pink Horses' when there are collectors who would love a 'Classic Swift Wind' At some point, Because to them Classic SW is just as Valid as a Flocked Panthor or Robotos gears.

As I said I want to see everything MOTU released in MOTUC style,so that we all get what we want. (but not all of it has to be in the sub -particularly Niche items like these.)
The all in sub is a double edged sword, and I have always held that it should have had the option to 'Choose' what you want to buy.
large 'Variant' beasts (such as the two mentioned) should be only on Matty. so that we can Choose. they are after all, straight repaint/Re-Flocks.
Ram-Man (and some other characters, notably Sorceress) are being "held hostage" to that end. Not because they couldn't afford to do them, but because they don't want a rush of people suddenly quitting the line because they've got everything they wanted...Originally Posted by Toyguru
Yay to the minicomic characters, give me a Geldor, Lodar, Garn, Rana, heck even a Josh and Leon (who could share a young Adam buck!)
I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

I was at that vote for the color of Swift Wind and I can say that was a total cluster. If I remember correctly, they gave us 2 tickets and didnt say which was for which and then they had 2 girls in a pink and a white shirt and you were supposed to drop the ticket in the box they held depending on the color you wanted. I may be a little slow, but I didnt get it completely and I just dropped a ticket in a box, I dont remember which. I hope the vote this year is a little clearer or I might be voting for some screwed up variant. I dont trust the results of any of these votes.
As I always say in threads like this:
The reason they're putting out unflocked Panthor and "Royal" Swift Wind first is because if they put out the iconic deco/version -first- then a lot of collectors would be satisfied and not buy the other version.
By putting out a variant first, you ensure that people will buy it, not knowing when/if the "correct" version comes out, and then buy the redeco later to get it.
Mattel learned this after putting out Battle Cat, watching him sell out in minutes and then realizing there's no variant of him people will buy.
Basically it's the same reason they put in very minor characters before the big names of the franchise.
We'll also see a "corrected" She-Ra which can actually sit on a horse eventually, so people will have to re-buy her too.
Since the currently unavailable Filmation Swiftwind was the one I was really interested in, I was hoping the pink horse won. Sure, Royal Swiftwind is a little closer to Filmation's version, but I wasn't going to be completely happy with either of them. At least the vintage POP fans would have been happy with the pink horse.
To be honest, I don't think we'll be getting a pink Swiftwind any more than I think we'll be getting a flocked Panthor or 2002 He-Man(at least not anytime soon).

LONG LIVE LOU SCHEIMER!!!

FILMATION FANS FOREVER!!!
I liked the character of Swiftwind on the She-Ra Filmation series. I have no memory or desire to own a pink one. It has zero appeal to me and this is coming from a dude that is anxious to get Glimmer and Frosta in his collection. It would just be too embarassing to own a pink unicorn With that being said, I am totally down for the Royal White version. That will be cool!!
As others have mentioned, I would be cool with Mattel eventually releasing the pink version BUT this offering would likely be the ONLY MOTUC's item I would have to pass on (unless they put it in the sub so that we had to purchase it). They should release it as a special variant that collectors could get outside of the all-in sub!!! The only variant of a large scale beast that I would be happy to have in the sub would be a flocked Panthor.
I've got no problem buying a pink horse or pink lion. Maybe it's the artist in me, but Pink is just another color.
I would like to see Clawful with articulated claws. I would've liked to see that with Buzz-Off as well, but whatever. At least Clawful!
