I've always thought it would be cool to see figures with the Filmation look to them. Is there a possibility of these in the Classics line? I wonder if there would be any legal issues. Also, what about 12" or 18" figures based on the original designs? I've seen the 12" Star Wars figures with the old Kenner design and it's crazy cool.

You mean like Shadow Weaver . . . or Shadow Beast?
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeletor's Robot Knights, Two-Bad, Horde Troopers, Modulok, Sssqueeze, Tung Lashor, Stridor, Night Stalker, the Battle Ram, and a true, alternate head for Wun-Dar (since he's a "different" character)!
Is this a trick question? Or is this member asking for Classic style Filmation figures (which we are getting) or for less detailed cartoon replica figures?
I don't want animation accurate figures, but filmation designs... YES I do! Of course, we're already getting some (I presume you know about Fang-Man next year) and depending on the health of the sub come 2014 I do expect more.
I'd love to see a pack of Filmation heads, including He-Man, Skeletor, Me-Man and Tri-Klops (with the hair!). Never happen of course, but would be pretty cool.
I survived the 2013 sub ordeal!

Matty got the rights to make Filmation figures for both originals and variants awhile back. Among the released/to be released are Shadow Weaver, Fang Man, and Filmation Randor. The search feature willl help you find several already existing Filmation threads.
