    Great read!

    I love how Draego Man was essentially made to fill a void in the Evil Warriors' lineup (not to mention Eric's own personal lineup ); I hope we get something similar with the other 30th anniversary releases (female Snake Warrior, male Rebellion member, etc).

    ET: Oh man, Scorpia. I promise you she will be a killer figure.

    My hype level is off the charts.

    Eric fulfilled a dream of mine, since I was a kid, I always complained why don't the bad guys have a flying guy. Hungar the Harpie was never made, and I think she is the only bad character that could fly. Thanks Eric for making such a cool looking bad guy. Now bring on Scorpia!

    Not much to really say about a repaint with two new heads, is there?

    However, there is another part to the interview where she could still come up. But I doubt she will.

    Shadow Weaver hovers, Orko flys. I don't count the fly machines. Without the machines, the good guys still have Sy-Klone, Buzz-Off, Stratos, Sorceress etc, but at least the bad guys now have Drago-man.

    THAT was awesome!!

    He's really cool to listen to... I was fortunate enough to talk to him, and listen as he talked about design challenges (The Sorceress, for example).

    I love that he mentioned Scorpia!! She's a great character... It sounds like he's finding the love for the POP characters, which is exciting, because I want to see the 4H versions of those women.

    I want to see them brought into the Classics line.

    That large pic of Draego-Man is great. His wings are excellent... and they make me think that Lord Dactys, Batros, and Hunga the Harpy are all possible.
    A Want List of Sorts: Saurod, Buzz-Saw Hordak, Dragstor, Perfuma, Dare, Snake Mountain, Prahvus, Veena, King Chuboolu, Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    God I hope so I also really want Vultak. So excited about what he said about Scorpia. I hope they really knock her and Octava out of the park!

    Oh, no, I know. I mean I've heard they are all planned into the line-up...

    I just meant I'm excited to see them redesigned... as long as they DO, in fact, get a redesign like Bow.

    Hunga's feathered (and not just the wings - which do kinda have that shape, I grant - but her whole body), and Batros' are caped like the Sorceress rather than off his back:

    Great interview. I love how he went back to the line's origins to create his character. The 8-back era inspires greatness yet again!

    As for this other discussion...I don't think the Star Sisters belong in motu. I do think they belong in MOTUC though.

    My sentiments precisely, Tally! Thanks for posting this, MGM.
    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

    I'm really excited by this:

    Re: Filmation and She-Ra characters
    So, with the She-Ra 2.0 if you look at that, we took some of the toy details and added a few little details, so it still looks very Filmation accurate, but it’s got the extra details in it, and I think that’s probably about where we’ll be with it. A lot of the time, that is the trick. If you want to add those details in or have toy or mini comic or show or even the occasional 2002 element, it is that seems right for the figure or that fans have asked for without ruining the basic look of the figure that people are looking for. And so I think we’ve gotten to the point where we’ve had enough experience with it, with hearing what the fans have to say and what they think works/doesn’t work that I think that we know what to do pretty well at this point. I think we will be able to move forward pretty smoothly with it.

    Sounds like Hybrid style, taking the best of both worlds. I really hope that turns out to be true. I need a dancing gif or something.

    Happy to see Kowl (!!), Mermista (!!), and Octavia (!!) get mentions in there.

    It also sounds like we haven't seen the last of Evil-Lyn.

    That was awesome to read! Eric said a lot of good things in there, but I'm still scared about future PoP women. It sounds like Filmation plus a tiny bit of details here and there. I say, do them like Emiliano's picture! I think that will make most people happy. Best of both worlds there.

    About Evil-Lyn...it sounds like they think that IS 200X Evil-Lyn and they want to repaint her AGAIN to make her more Filmation-like. My goodness.

    The Evil Lyn part made me cringe... but the Kowl part gave me hope! Bow is naked without Kowl...
    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.
