    I chose A. Makes more sense since Swiftwind has wings to make the castle in the clouds.

    I chose Filmation because it's the ONLY way to go in my opinion ... and Mike the Filmation version was also in the clouds.

    Jim, I don't know why you chose that picture to represent the Filmation version. It looks more like fan art than a screen grab from the show.

    Though the vintage playset is very cool, a pink/blue castle would probably be a harder sell than a gold/red one. However, the Filmation version is just Light Hope's cavern covered with a pretty shell. So some sort of blending of the two would probably be best.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Vintage toy, the Filmation version looks too much like an overblown tiara.

    ...what even is the Filmation one? Looks like it can't even contain people. I chose the mix of A and B, since you could just sculpt the Filmation design from that picture and put it in front of the toy design, with that red part being the door. Looks like a real easy mix, if you ask me. I mean the Filmation thing looks like like a symbol than any sort of structure.

    I agree. I'd like a hybrid design. The Filmation one is stunning, but it's not a castle. It's a sculpture.

    I'm a big fan of gbagok's design. If the castle part was scaled up, or the tower scaled down, it could be reworked into a stunning playset.

    I don't need it to be a playset. If the main jewel opened or came off and Light Hope was inside I would be thrilled.

    I went with a Toy/Filmation combo cause The Filmation look, while Iconic, makes no sense as a castle... It's just Light Hope's bedroom inside the Giant Tiara monument...
    What I'd like is the Toy playset as the base of the castle, while the Filmation "Tower" would be atop the Vintage Castle.
    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.

    I chose "B".

    If we manage to get one of these things, it would likely be only after SNAKE MOUNTAIN, judging from Scott's preferences and what will be an easier sell. That said, the Filmation Crystal Castle has a few things going for it:

    * It is single sided, so half the cost theoretically.
    * We've never seen it in the line before.
    * The front facade could be a single sculpt without moving parts, except perhaps a door.
    * The interior could have three simple floors, one containing LIGHT HOPE. The others could have select movable pieces from the toy castle.

    I'm not holding my breath, but I would definitely buy this!

    Option D

    I'd like to see the playset structured like the vintage one, but designed more in line with the show's version, since we've never had the chance to own that. Incidentally, I would feel the same about Snake Mountain.

    I cant vote on this. Technically a combo of filmation & original toy, but...not gonna happen.

    I picture the cartoon when I think She-Ra, but that doesnt lend itself to playset. The real playset, I dont really care about.

    I mean give me Snake Mountain, Slime Pit, & Fright Zone before Crystal Castle.

    Not gonna happen.

    Here's an idea of what the hybrid might look like. Mattel could make the Filmation version detachable too. (Thanks to the folks at SWR for posting this pic)

    For now Option B is what i'd go for personally. Always liked the Filmation style. Also, until we see what CG looks like, it's that same reason i wouldn't choose a hybrid just yet.

    Option D - The hyrbid original toy/Filmation looks fantastic!

    That's exactly what I would want to see in any Crystal Castle playset.

    It's been a while since I've seen a full She-Ra show, but I remember one episode where Adora couldn't transform into She-Ra and as Adora she climbed into the castle. So for me at least, that says a castle on top of a mountain that's rises above the clouds.

    I think a combination of A and B would be great. I would love elements of the Filmation design, but I think a straight Filmation version would not be a good playset. I just don't get much of a playset "vibe" from it. I think that would look great as a "playset topper" though
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!
