    Maybe they can rebrand him as the "one-winged wonder" and include his other wing in a weapons pak.

    3) Many fans still like the thought of two subscription options - a basic sub, containing only the 12 regular figures, and an advanced sub containing everything. Can you give some details why exactly something like that can't be done?

    Sorry, this is propriatory information we do not make available. We are well aware there is fan demand but it is not something we will be offering. Many fans want the MOTUC line to work exactly for their particiular buying habbits, and while we respect that, in the end, logistically to make the line work we need to combine all the items into one sub and that is the basis for all production.
    This one bothers me a bit. The Main Reason I did NOT commit to a 2012 Sub is the cost. If they Had a basic 12 fig sub, I would've subscribed. Because of the sub being all-in is why I'm forced to be a Cherry Picker.
    I'm sure that other "Cherry Pickers" would subscribe too if there was a less expensive sub option.
    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.

    While you may be right, I'm sure they're concerned about the additional items. The bonus and quarterly figures for the year cost about as much as the monthlies. If, for every cherry picker that bought a monthlies-only sub. there was an "all-in" buyer who switched to just the monthlies, it would just even itself out.

    It would be worse than that really, because it would put the additional items in jeopardy since their minimum baseline would be reduced.

    You could say that it's worse than that still, since it's not like the cherry pickers never bought anything, and it wouldn't really be 12 new sales from each new monthly customer.

    Maybe separating the Current into 2 subs could help a bit...
    Basic 12 figs Sub
    Variant and Large Scale items Sub

    To those who want "All-in" they just combine the subs.
    Sadly the large scale items and variants would suffer a reduction, and a possible scale-back in the amount sold per year. IMHO a reduction in the amount of variants and large scale items is a better solution than increasing prices too much and causing a dip in the customer base like the one Netflix is going through.

    What is this nonsense about Evilseed possibly having two heads? How is that gonna work? The artichoke head on the 200x body is not going to look right. They could put a robe on the 200x body but that wouldn't work because the 200x version is too muscular.

    Exactly. And I think the answer is that we'll get - more than probably - a 200x Evilseed... just like it should be, in my opnion.

    Hmmm...two heads for Evil Seed will only work if he has the robe. Two reasons.

    1) Filmation and MYP Evil Seed are very different colours

    2) De-robed Filmation Evil Seed's body will not work on a standard buck!

    Filmation, no robe:

    Man I hope the 200X version is made. I have ZERO interest in Filmation Evil Seed. If they made both (or somehow could swing using the same basic body) I'd be happy for the Filmation version to be made for those that want him. But if they have to choose I hope it's 200X.

    Whooooo for 200X Evil Seed! I'm not a fan of of the Filmation design, but if they do make the character then two heads would be a great solution.

    That Illumina answer is strange. Since when has obscurity made a character more difficult to produce? This line doesn't worry about moms and kids. The hardcore fans ARE the audience.

    I agree with this. I don't remember a ground-swell of support for Gygor before he came out. Why would things work differently for Gygor and Illumina? It seems as if there is relatively more support for Illumina.

    Yeah I was just gonna say all they need for Evil Seed is a 2nd head and a cloak that he wears in Fillamation. That would be totally awesome!

    Since when is support an issue or has ever been needed before?

    She is a cool character who fits in well and with her help there could be a way to explore more about the Gar race.

    So yes, you are more than right, this answer is really strange

    Yeah, the answer is kind of weird. Did Vikor have more support outside the ORG? Gygor is also another good example. I just don't really understand that. So, do we need to organize a mass media blitz to get people to understand who she is?

    Yeah, because SOOOO many people knew who Vikor, Demo-Man, and Gygor were.

    Well, if we want to show our support, maybe we can vote in this poll on Mattycollector. I've posted to a few sites I frequent funneling people there. Not sure how many people would have to vote to show interest though. But maybe talking about it on other forums would help spread the love some more.

    Even though that is a cool looking figure, who has asked for Draego-Man?
    And even so, who has supported newly unknown made figures for 30th Ann more than Illumina?

    They just don't want to do it because of being afraid of some legal actions regarding rights. They are just being politically correct about it

    I'm getting tired of hearing "all our resources are going into the figures line"

    Really? How many 'resources' would it take to allow Dark Horse to continue with the comics? Even if it wouldn't be cost effective to do them as minis with the figures, it could be done as a regular comic.

    They consistently throw that "small but loud" out there, but then they go and design new figures. Who was calling for Draego Man?

    Nobody. Because nobody knew who he was. Because he didn't' exist.

    But now we've all seen him, and most of us love him.

    So.....what was their point exactly?

    For once (), I agree with thee!
    Even the robe wouldn't cover the differences.

    Someone should post those on the MC forum for him if they haven't been already.

    Vikor was, let's be honest here, a complete Conan rip. That has an impact on who they may have expected to buy it.

    Vikor, as well as Demo-Man, happened because Scott wanted them to happen.

    Illumina... well, we all know that story

    We have done testing and outside of a small but loud set of fans on hard core MOTU fan sites she has very little recongnition or demand. We'd love to get to her but we would need to see a lot more support
    Would that be the same "Small but loud set of fans on hard-core MOTU fan site(s)" that made this line possible?

    This is a badly flavored response

    He-Man.org, and to a lesser extent, Matty's Forums, are the main source of "testing" that Scott has... for free I might add.

    This answer is just... weird.

    It just further makes me question why someone like Geoff Johns is designing a 30th Anniversary figure... and people like Lou Scheimer, Larry Ditillio, Emiliano Santalucia, Val Staples, or Rudy Obrero aren't.

    Geoff is great, but what does he have to do with MOTU? I mean, he might be a fan, but in my opinion, the 30th Anniversary figures should all have been designed by significant contributors to the property.
