    Who Would You Sacrifice in 2016?

    Imagine for a moment that 2016 offers a full-year's selection (one figure a month) disregarding out of sub items, beasts, etc.

    The main subscription, therefore, is 12 main figures.

    Mattel has offered 13 possible candidates. The one voted out will never be made.

    Who will you sacrifice? Choose the character that won't get made so that 12 others will.

    What if there's more than one that we don't want?

    What if we can think of a dozen figures we'd rather have than your list?
    Top want list: Green Goddess 2.0, Snake Mountain Man, Mask of Power Demons, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Mini-Comics Beast-Man, 200X Beast-Man, Horde Wraiths, Skeleton Warriors, Battle-Ram, Snake Mountain, & a hardcover collection of all the mini-comics.

    200X Sorceress. I don't particularly care if I get her, while the others would be swell. They certainly aren't my TOP picks though.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    First off, I'm just going to say that all of these selections would be great for a sub year's worth of figures, I would like all of them. If I had to eliminate one release, I would "cheat" and offer Delora with an alternate Hawke head, Filmation style. Hawke would never get officially made but we can alternate Delora to create Hawke's look ourselves with a simple head swap.

    Well you don't have to play if you don't want to.

    Heck, I could think of a dozen I'd want more than a few on this list as well. I just tried to go by what I've seen as many of the most popular choices in order to see who might "kill one of their babies" so that the others might live. Just a fun way to gauge popularity of figure choices.

    If you dislike a lot of this list, just choose the one you'd like to see eliminated the most.

    I knew when I made Delora the last figure that someone would cheat with the head swap option!

    Good for you for being "all in" (at least with this selection).

    Not that i don't want him, just that he's not a priority as forthcoming release;
    so Miro gets back to Despondos here.

    200x Sorceress. I already have the Sorceress. The rest are unique characters, so daddy wants.

    Delora I can do without. Actually I can do without most of the choices but it was between Delora and Despara. I reasoned that Despara would make a cooler looking action figure to me.

    There is no way that Granita would be a regular monthly release figure, so I have no qualms whatsoever in eliminating her. :^)

    If you'd made it multiple choice I would have voted, but there's no way I'm only eliminating one of your NA selections!

    Go ahead and list them then.

    What is your list of eliminations from the list in the poll? I actually am very curious to see.

    (Though I'm sure I can guess the top two . . . )

    From the characters in the poll, for me the choice was an instant no-brainer: that horrendous abomination called Despara absolutely goes out. It wouldn't bother me one bit if we were spared the pain of having to hear of such a disgraceful defilement of the Adora/She-Ra character ever again in MotU lore.

    Eliminate: Darius, Crita

    Don't actually want, but would deal with having included in a sub: Dylamug

    I would be fine with Hawke OR Delora, but both is silly.

    Don't care one way or the other: Lodar, Vultak, Lord Masque, Hunga the Harpy.

    Figures in this list I actually want: Granita, Hawke, 200x Sorceress, King Miro, Despara.


    If 2016 looks a lot like your list above, I wouldn't sub. There's just a lot of characters I'm apathetic towards in that list.

    On the other hand, give me some Mask of Power Demons, some Trollans, Nu52 Green Goddess of Serpos, some sort of Beast-Man Horde Wraiths, Odiphus, Tuvar and Badra, Stridor, Filmation, 200X, and Nu52 variants, etc and I may sign up for another year!

    I'd eliminate 200X Sorceress without a second thought.

    I'll almost always pick new characters over variants, especially one I have no use for.

    Oh man! That's not a bad line-up. Love it.

    But if you had to sacrifice one element of that line-up to insure the rest were made . . . who would it be?

    I'll tell you. This is how I saw things going for the most part. I was worried that the variant was the weak link that would draw the elimination choice, and I fear that I may have been right (according to current numbers).

    It's still the case that Org members are bigger fans of the deep cuts than your average current or potential fan. Sure, the variant will be the loser, or one of the losers in a poll like this when it is hosted here. We know who the Org is/are. They like PoP more than the average customer. They tolerate NA better than the average customer. And an out-sized portion of them got into Classics from the very beginning - which means variants have less pull for them than for people who may not own ANY versions of the main characters.

    As far as me going without one of the characters I mentioned? I'll stick just to the ones I specifically mentioned, not the vague "variants, etc":

    I want a Stridor, but I'd live without him for the figures I want.
