I think after they got Filmation, golden books, jetlag, ect rights, and AND revealed Fearless Photog, I dont doubt that they'll have the rights to anybody eventually. Only basically movie left right?
So For now understanding that I think they could do absolutely anybody eventually, I suppose I'm afraid of them not doin...
Karg, outta the movie. I think they'll get the rights, but maybe it'll take to long to get to Karg since I imagine they'd want to do Blade, Saurod, and Gwildor first, as they are in the vintage line. But then Karg is an obvious draw, and much requested. And they do listen to our much requests. But it's possible he'd be missed.
Oo-Larr. I hated the idea of Oo-Larr, since it was clear to me from Wun-Dar's bio he was the barbarian He-Man from the minicomic. I still think that made more sense, and I kinda still stick with it. But I've grown attached in some small way to the idea of Oo-Larr, the He-Man from the original minicomics. I dont really need a basically nekkid He-Man varient with a spear, but I kinda do. He fits now, I've accepted him. Dangit. But they may just not bother, they've got so much else to do.
Modulok. Hey, he's going to be very strange and difficult to do right. And if and when they do do him, it may just be perfection itself. But I'm scared they may just skip him until the line dies. Not skip him intentionally, but put him off until it's too late.
Songster. After listening to Pixel Dan, Lord Killen, and crew on their podcast, where Dan mentions a great and interesting (and quite satisfying) story, I'm very very excited. Things are comming together in great ways. But I'm afraid he may get missed. At least after Dan's story on the podcast, I'm more certain this will be done. I just hope sooner than later, say sometime next year as an sdcc exclusive, or at the latest a 2013 Sub fig, (though I doubt that last, as I think they will do "must have" figures going forward, at least for a while.) Whatever. I want a Songster. Him with Photog (and Shadow Weaver) make my most wanted out of the least likely. Now he's the only one left. Come on, do it!
About Songster: I wouldn't be surprised if he was one of the original characters made for MOTUs 30th anniversary...
I think characters requiring a lot of tooling will not make it to the line....
a Rock People 3 pack with Stonedar/Rokkon/Granita seems unfortunately unrealistic
I hope that on the other end the core characters of every factions are made before MOTUC ends (Angella, Glimmer, Frosta and Castaspella for POP. Hydron, Brakk, Darius and Slushead for NA, etc....). It would be sad to have MOTUC ends this way, while obscure characters like Mo-Larr, Vikor or Photog made it...
In one of the SDCC videos (might be last years), ToyGuru told PixelDan that any figure that had been made will be made (meaning MOTU, POP, NAHM, Movie, 200x, and NECCA). So gaining the Filmation, Jetlag, and book rights just opened up using the unique characters from them (TG has also said they will not be making specific Filmation-style anyones, but they would take a Filmation/other character and "classicize" it for the line, meaning adding more detail).
The figures I'd really love to see made:
Evilseed (MOTU and 200x-style; maybe a removable robe & swappable heads)
Oo-Larr (hopefully with bare wrists & feet, drawstring shorts, and spear)
Skeletor's Skelcons (neat 2-pack/army builder)
Skeletor's Robots Warriors (another neat 2-pack/army builder)
Melaktha (maybe with Stanlin)
Queen Frosta (my favorite POP character, next to She-Ra/Adora)
Madame Razz & Broom
Eldor (with Book of Living Spells)
Gray (He-Ro's original alter-ego)
A pretty tall order, but I'm sure they can all be got to. Some possible, some probable, others probably not.

I truly believe we will get nearly all the regular figures of vintage MOTU and POP. The line is going along well enough to get that task done imo. Especially with the big, upcoming 30th anniversary year! I'll worry when we have a Thermometer of DoomÖ taunting us.
I think the only figures I want but realistically might not make it are gonna be mostly Filmation characters. Especially if they are only doing 1-3 Filmation characters per year and there's dozens of characters that I would love a figure of that NOT everyone would.
I don't think we're ever gonna see a Filmation Count Marzo variant due to the new tooling he'd require. That was Toyguru's response at least when he was asked about it: "He would require too much new tooling and they want to get to other Filmation characters first".

C'mon ! I want THEM ALL !!!
I'm just afraid about HORDE PRIME because the 4Horsemen have to create a brand new concept.. BUT I REALLY REALLY REALLY want him!
Two of him.
Earth cloths and Eternian robes.
With 2 Eternian girls
Because Lubic rules.
I am not worried about getting any of the vintage figures. If/when this line were to ever come to a close, if all of the vintage figures are not accounted for, it would never be considered complete or definitive. I think making it the latter is extremely high on the priorities list for both TG and the 4H.
I suppose my concerns would come mostly from FilMation as there is just so much to do. I am not worried about my BIG wants from there - guys like General Sunder (could be a head in a Trooper 2-pack), King Miro, Seahawk. Vultak and Icer all seem like givens.
So, I suppose I will add King Ahgo and Grox to the list of "concerned". They are somewhat obscure, but I consider the trolls to be a integral part of the Rebellion and I am always for adding more diversity to the shelf. They would make for some AMAZING over-sized figures (how could you not want a 4H troll figure?) and could obviously share bodies. I would love to see them.
I want everyone though, so my list is obviously long, but I want to show my support for the GOOD kind of trolls.
Here are my wants that I doubt we’ll get:
Leo Kobra Khan
Man at Arms - (classic toy colors)
Mer-Man - (vintage toy version: Whiplash forearms, Kobra Kahn’s boots, no yellow on arms and legs, orange loin cloth)
Laser Power He-Man - with Dolph Lundgren head sculpt
200X He-Man - with new sculpted lion cloth, chest harness, forearms, head, axe, and shield (no less new parts than Vikor received)

I don't think we will ever get Odiphus, old man Marzo, Kowl, Imp, Lookie, catra's cat form, and a legit Cringer.

Illumina i would say, i would love to see her made but i have a bad feeling for her....
Can┤t say why.
I also would love Kowl and Lookie, but I actually consider them possible.
On the less likely scale, I'd have to agree with Rokkon and Stondar and add The Collector as a vehicle and the nameless (as far as I can tell) rock based Horde member from MYP.
A 2013 3-pack of Stondar, Rokkon and Granita would be an awesome way to get the rock people in one fell swoop.
An easy Sorceress redeco. New head and could use a different color scheme, but will Mattel produce it?
Could come with a Teela-Na head for the Sorceress.
A perfect quarterly figure
Planet Claire has pink air
All the trees are red
No one ever dies there
No one has a headThe B-52's
Maybe I just have too much faith in this line, but I believe we'll eventually see every vintage MOTU and POP figure in MOTUC.
I'm mostly worried about not seeing the more obscure FILMation characters like Dragoon, Celice and Tullamore. As well as some characters that they don't currently have the rights for, like Detective Lubic, Karg and Movie Skeletor.

How could I forget?!
(what a ridiculous character)
You know, all this talk about The Rock Warriors got me thinking. I'd love to get them in MOTUC. But I think if we don't get them, it's a little different than some other characters.
If for example, they never made Ram Man (God forbid) I couldn't really put a classic Ram Man with the other characters. He's too out of scale and style. But Rokkon was so differently shaped and sized to begin with, he could almost pass for a MOTUC character in his original form.
Same goes for Gwildor I suppose. Although I never had much interest in the live action film personally. If I did, I guess I'd just have to go get a Tom Paris action figure.
