    Shouldn't this be in the polls section of the forum? I'd buy a flocked Panthor which is how he should have released in the first place.

    If all of you flock lovers want a flocked Panthor; I hope you get them... In fact I won't buy it, so a flock lover can get him... As long as you don't interfere with my quest on the He-Mullet for LP He-Man, 200X He-Man, etc.(as an extra head)
    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.

    Deal!

    Don't worry, I won't interfere with you by attempting to buy a He-Man w\fanny pack and hyper anime hair either.

    I don't know, Count M. I think which should do an intervention of behalf on DO4M to help him with that unhealthy need for that version of He-Man...

    I'm a big sucker for this line, so I'd absolutely buy a flocked Panthor. That was my preference for him to originally be made. Although I don't have this version in my hands yet, I'm sure I'll still be happy with the unflocked version as well.

    I only would've bought a flocked Panthor had it been offered before the unflocked one.

    I have nostalgic ties to the vintage Panthor, but I would NOT buy a second version of him. I've already got two, because of my double subscription. I don't need a third.

    Ya as much as my wife hates the fact Panthor is unflocked I wouldn't buy a new flocked version unless it was Bikin...I mean Battle Ground Panthor from a later time period- once the heroes are on the run from Skeletor. Maybe with some changes to the sculpt etc so I wasn't just buying a flocked figure I already have.
    All caught up on figures...now what

    I agree. Unflocked Moss-Man looks so gross! Also, he's just "green Beastman." Flocking really brought Moss Man alive. If they did an unflocked, MYP Moss-Man in the bright green, I think that would look good.

    Unflocked Panthor makes me sad though. I might like him in person, we'll see...but flocking always made him special.

    What did you expect to see, a lot of people who aren't willing to purchase two versions of the same character?

    A lot of the people voting that they wouldn't buy a flocked one if released, actually prefer the flocked version but aren't willing to buy the same character for a second time.

    This poll doesn't guage the popularity of flocked or unflocked, it guages the number of people who are willing to buy the exact same character for a second time.

    Oh, I don't know. Why don't we throw up a Poll about She-Ra 2.0? Or ask what happened with Grayskull 2.0?

    Ahh, but me and Count Marzo are from Bizarro World so an "intervention" has a different meaning to us. An oh, so sinister meaning...

    if they made flocked versions of Panthor and Battle Cat I'd get them, then my DC 2-pack Skelletor and He-Man can have something to ride aswell

    Although I do like my unflocked Panthor, I voted that I would buy a flocked one just for nostalgia's sake. I would then donate my unflocked one to my daughter. (It would make both of us VERY happy. lol)

    Even though "it's a great idea for a refresh somewhere down the line" item?

    This was the answer I received when I asked Mattel about including gray Beastman feet on Stratos with the MOTUC vs. DCU Toys R Us two-pack before they were released.

    It could've been done WITH the two-pack, but "it's a great idea" for pushing us to buy another single carded Stratos in the future.

    But the option that's far ahead is the "I'm happy with the current version and won't buy another" option.

    For the record, if there's enough demand, I do believe he should be released flocked for those that want him. I can't imagine the flocking looking all that great considering the amount of articulation.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I'm sure many, many people who already have She-Ra will be passing on the 2.0 version.

    As for King Grayskull 2.0, that's a different ballgame all together. The 1st King Grayskull fetches over $100 easily, so most people don't have him. KG 2.0 allowed those fans the oppurtunity to get that character for $20.

    Yes, that is true. But like I said, some of the people who voted for that option actually prefer Panthor flocked and just aren't willing to buy a second version of him. If they had their choice, they wouldn't have purchased the unflocked version.

    I love the Classics Panthor I have now, but I would also love to have a flocked version, in homage to the original.

    I'm happy with this Panthor version and I truly believe that flocking it will take away from it's awesomeness!

    I did initially want a flocked Panthor. But the Panthor I just got is as tight as can possibly be. The odds of me getting another Panthor with joints this tight would be very low so I think I'll stick with the one I have.
