    Crystal Moonbeam in MOTUC!

    We definitely need Crystal Moonbeam in MOTUC!

    Peekablue's horse would look great in the line, and since the Swiftwind buck already exists for the horses, this is a no brainer. The crystal horses were some of my favorite POP toys that my sister had back in the day, and I'd love to see them immortalized in MOTUC, Crystal Moonbeam especially!

    So Crystal Moonbeamamaniacs, what say you????

    Yes to Crystal Moonbeam. I finally picked up a vintage one of these and it's still fairly impressive after all of these years. Would be cool to see what they could do now.

    I need this so bad! The beasts are my favorite part of this line, especially the winged ones.

    Definitely want Moonbeam.

    This would basically be pure profit for Mattel.

    The crystal horses (and Storm) are necessary.

    I only have two hesitations I have here:

    With all the articulation and the figure's construction, I don't know if the transparent plastic will look good. Seeing all the "guts" of the assemble and articulation may not work very well.

    The concerns about transparent plastic in this line are hard to shake. Spirit of Hordikins seems pretty stable and says no to cracks, but his arms and legs feel softer and gummier than previous clear figures. The latter could lead to some major problems with bowed horse legs down the line...

    If those two things didn't cause problems, I wouldn't have any problem with giving Mattel a chance to re-use the horse molds for some of the crystal horses (although I think Arrow and Storm would have to come first).

    No reason they would have to be transparent to replicate a crystal effect. There are opaque options and paint app choices that could give a crystal effect without having to risk previous transparent plastic issues in this line.

    I definitely want this horse! I would vote for transparent just like the original was. I was bummed when Icer arrived and wasn't transparent. I'm not sure why I assumed he would be.
    In Midwinter, the heat from the oven baking my Shrinky Dinks is all I need!

    Exactly. While I would prefer transparent, they could do Moonbeam just like Sun Dacer was in the Filmation cartoon or do a frosted paint application. There are several options for how to get these two great beasts out

    Sign me up, but I definitely want SPIRIT first. His absence is just criminal at this point.

    And I am going on record as a fan of the translucent look. That was not the problem with the Goddess or Roboto. The translucent PVC was fine, it was the plastic used in the joints on Goddess. Roboto was just put together incorrectly. (Mine is still okay!)

    Anyway, YES to Crystal Moonbeam!
    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

    Very minimal to no new tooling needed. With the lack of vehicles and no hopes realistically for a Crystal Castle, I would love to see this mount released.
    It's all been done before. Everything to say has already been said. Do me a solid and pretend I posted something witty and original here

    They're actually sending you two. . . for the price of three. . . sorry.

    Anyway, sad news aside, I am ALL ABOUT Crystal Moonbeam!!! And I want him TRANSLUCENT! If they had done a year with ALL the horses, I probably would have subbed, besides the fact that I generally want no more than 20-30% of the figures MOTUC puts out.

    I would love a Mantisaur as well but he would be a lot of new tooling with no reuse. I can appreciate that there are many who don;t want ANY horses but there are also some who want ALL of them. The fact that the buck exists works in their favor production wise. Hopefully we can get to what everyone wants someday!
