    Frosta could work if nothing else to correct that horrible off white color and give her a true bright white. I could also say the Star Sisters to get their vintage prototype colors but I could see that causing a riot.
    Mattel I'm still waiting for these characters!

    Hurricane Hordak with no flaking VAC gold and no back dial and get rid of the flat abs!
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor with no black plastic underneath and more vintage accurate dragon head (with open jaws) and remouvable chains.

    I have no suggestions, but I think that's a wonderful idea!

    Truth be told, I'd even be happy with a "correction pack", containing just Roboto buck casted in proper plastic, a green 1.0 pelvis for Green Goddess, etc. etc. in order to be able to heat-and-pop all that inplace by ourselves...

    Probably better off going with a six figure line-up. a twelve figure sub would be a much harder sell. This group of 2.0s would sell well I would think:

    Teela
    Sorceress
    Roboto
    Goddess
    Fisto
    Shadow Weaver (obviously different from the sub exclusive version)

    How about a non-deteriorating Snout Spout?

    I was actually thinking about this the other day: with being so far into the line, it seems like a smart idea for Mattel and try to do something like this as a sub. I would advocate for them doing nothing truly "new", but would love to see 6 of the main characters reoffered as sort of a 'catch up' sub for folks coming into the line. Let Mattel propose the sub and see if they get enough subscribers to make it worthwhile.

    Perhaps He-Man, Teela, Man-at-Arms, Sorceress, Hordak,and She-Ra (there seem to be tons of Skeletors floating around). With those figures in their collections, perhaps newer fans will feel more secure in beginning a new collection.

    Redo Fisto to get rid of the huge basket on his back, get rid of the flat silver ab section.

    Redo Teela with the waist swivel, corrected bracelets & some Filmation accessories.

    Sorceress could use more Shadow Weaver style wings, after all, in her Human form the wings are a cape, not actual wings (Sorceress doesn't fly, Zoar does) and attached at her wrists.
    In doing that it would eliminate the pegs and enhance her ability to spread the cape correctly when her arms are out. A longer skirt or shorter crotch piece and swivel thighs.

    Honestly, other than a Teela 2.0 with the new waist articulation, I'm not interested in buying these figures again. All the others on your list I accept as they are or I've fixed them myself.

    For me I'd say:

    1) Stinkor - corrected forearms
    2) King Hiss - corrected shoulders and improved ankle joint mold
    3) Roboto - corrected shoulders and improved torso plastic
    4) Teela - improved female mold
    5) Frosta - re-deco white color
    6) Snout Spout - improved foam material for snout
    7) Goddess - improved translucent plastic use
    8) Faceless One - a true "faceless" face
    9) Castle Grayskull - even though not released yet, improved scale version
    10) Panthor - flocked version
    11) Horde Prime - non-monochromatic red face
    12) Queen Marlena - silver space suit re-deco

    Well that is a great idea. I agree 100%. Actually Sorceress is the perfect candidate to a fabric cape/wings. Since it is a cape in the catoon.

    I agree, 12 figures is too much. The only problem with this or the original idea is that some of us already have this characters. But I agree that Roboto, Goddess and Shadow Weaver are highly needed. Also there is the problem of Snout Spout trunk, but he is not a high demanded character. As for SW, she could be the exclusive in this new sub, so there is no need to be different. I know the sub exclusive is an "exclusive" but many of us were not collecting at that time to get the SW sub. The only people who are not going to benefit from a new SW release are the ones selling her at high prices on ebay.

    As for the other characters mentioned, I really don't need another Stinkor or King Hiss 2.0. May be a 200X King Hiss with swapable parts could be a better solution. Snout Spout head could be added with a low tooling figure since the body is not bad. But character like Sorceress, Roboto and Goddess require a complete remake. There is no way to easy fix that.

    Well I'm going to answer this differently as I don't see them redoing already finished figures unless it's several years from now. So I'll pick variants that are less likely within the next 2 years:

    1. Snake Armor He-Man
    2. 200X "Battle Ground" King Hssss with imposing Snake form
    3. Filmation Clawful with a "modern (see 200X)" head pack in
    4. 200X Captain/Battle Armor King Randor
    5. 200X Battle Armor Queen Marlena
    6. 200X Sorceress

    And really more than 6 would be pushing it as an add-on to the regular sub IMO. But if you needed 12, these are some others people have wanted:

    7. Filmation Hordak
    8. 200X Teela
    9. 200X Adam
    10. 200X General Rattlor
    11. 200X Evil Lyn
    12. Mini Comics Trap Jaw

    Here how this could be done realistically ...

    This will cost Mattel no extra money for sculpts since everything already exist, so they will be cheaper to make than a brand new figure so more profit for them!

    6 figure mini sub - doesn't take away any figures from the main line. If you do not need these you do not need to order it.
    Pre-order only - Mattel is unlikely to take any chance on re-issues unless they know for sure they will sell out.
    No DOS figures - see above. no extras no risk.
    Fan voted figures - I don't trust Mattel to guess what we might want

    I would love to see:
    1. Teela - new style buck
    2. Fisto - same as before just re-issued
    3. Ram Man - same as before just re-issued
    4. Roboto - fixed version
    5. Goddess - fixed version
    6. Shadow Weaver - would have to be a different version somehow. This figure should have never been a club exclusive.

    I could see them doing Teela with new buck, and cutting out some of the accessories (we got all but Zoar with the weapons pack which there is still plenty of around).

    I could see a Roboto and Goddess which somehow fixes the breaking problem.

    Snout spout with a new trunk would be interesting but I am not sure what the fan demand is for the character. Kind of a similar problem with Goddess.

    Shadow Weaver give her a slightly different paint color. I also doubt they would reissue figures that had parts reversed, since really not a hard thing to fix.

    I could see them doing Fisto but with fewer accessories also.

    If Mattel did 2.0 versions of some of these - specifically things like a non-breaking Goddess or shoulder-corrected non-cracking Roboto - a lot of people would demand, not unreasonably, that they could exchange the old, faulty versions for them.

    Thanks a lot for the input so far.

    I added Snout Spount and the Sorceress to the mix, as they indeed urgently need fixing. Snout Spout for his desintegrating trunk and the Sorceress for the flaws that Design made with those horrible drums and the execution of the wings.
    Ah heck, I´ll add Frosta with corrected forearms and improved colors in a bit, too.



    All in all, this sub could very well be split into two 6-figure subs. But it wasn´t my intention to have it replace the regular sub.
    Positivity, folks!
    Let´s all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    Give Snout Spout his 200X head with plastic trunk and watch his popularity rise.

    Frosta would definitely need a new figure. Face it, Mattel jacked that one completely up. New Filmation head with correct painted hair, painted back, ice beam and ice weapon and white paint instead of gray.

    Teela, but instead of packing in Pre-Filmation Zoar, bird armor and bird perch, pack in her Alcala blonde ponytailed head as an extra.

    King Hsss with corrected shoulders, Earl Norem snake form and Bruce Timm maskless mini-comic head.

    Fisto with new armor that can hold vintage sword instead of 200X buster sword.

    Stinkor with corrected forearms.

    Roboto with NEW forearm weapons and corrected shoulders.

    The only one I believe we have a chance at is He-Man. Now that we have NA He-Man I think eventually we'll get an updated He-Man with the new wrist articulation. However, I want a newly sculpted head on him. The more human figures that come out with really awesome face sculpts the more I hate He-Man's head. His face in the original line was so awesome and I have to look at the Classics He-Man with He-Man's body with a Ken doll head every time I look into my display case.

    I don't think there is a chance of any other figures getting the 2.0 treatment.

    As cool as this sounds (I like it personally ), I dont see us all rising to the occassion in terms of making this sub happen financially (if it was to ever be offered). We're already paying enough for the regular sub and would probably have to have multiple subscriptions to this 2.0 sub to make it happen. Even if they were made in lower numbers, then sadly that would probably result in the costing more. Imagine if it was $30 a figure

    All that aside, I think a re-done Sorceress would be great!
