    What if...Only 6 Left?

    Okay, so here's the thought...

    What if Toyguru announced that Mattel was ready to cancel MOTUC in 2013, but as a parting "gift" they would produce 6 figures at the very end that were fan-chosen through a poll system on Mattycollector? Who would you want?

    Here are the restrictions that Mattel would/could place:

    - All figures are the regular 6" scale. No oversized or beasts.
    - 1 Figure can be 100% new tooling.
    - 1 Figure MUST be a Variant that is low-cost to make.
    - 1 Figure has to be POP
    - 1 Figure has to be NA
    - 1 Figure has to be 200X
    - 1 Figure has to be FILMation

    So who would you want? How'd you suggest they do it?

    If the demise of this line had to come by the end of 2012, I'd be so furious I'd never be able to forgive Mattel !

    Because there IS a strong fanbase for this line, the line can be successful as we were able to see, BUT too many wrong moves from Mattel might crush it yet again...


    If I really had to respect what was asked in the opening post, I'd choose those characters (reluctantly, because that's not the composition I'd like to see for the last 6 months) :

    100% Tool - Tung Lashor
    Variant - Dragon Blaster Skeletor
    PoP - Castaspella
    NA - Quakke
    200x - Two Bad
    FILMation - Batros

    But honestly, I'll feel REALLY, REALLY p.o. if all the 80's characters are not released !

    There are still SO MANY possibilities, and there's still SO MUCH potential for this line !

    I'd HATE to see the demise and the failure of this line because of the incompetence of the toy company...

    - 1 Figure can be 100% new tooling - Ram-man - must have!
    - 1 Figure MUST be a Variant that is low-cost to make - Oo-Lar - Not sure if he counts as a variant, but after BA he-man/skelly, i didn't really have a lot of variants; i think it'd be cool to have the final "he-man" before all is said and done.
    - 1 Figure has to be POP - Mantenna - need more horde and he was cool; i'd go with modulock, but he's 100% new tooling
    - 1 Figure has to be NA - Flogg - never watched NA, but i guess he would be a good choice just to get the leader of the mutants (even tho he is a little weird looking)
    - 1 Figure has to be 200X - Tung Lashor - i don't think he'd be 100% new tooling; he seems the coolest of the snake men and we need more snake men before the end
    - 1 Figure has to be FILMation - Mekaneck - one of my favs as a kid

    I think it's amazing how many people call foul at the suggestion that the Horde belongs in the PoP world...until they are asked to participate in a thread in which they have to choose a PoP character that they want to see made.

    Rokkon - 100% newly tooled figure
    Classic Toy Style Catra - low-cost to produce variant
    Double Trouble - PoP figure
    Quakke - NA figure
    Prahvus - 2002 character
    Shokoti - Filmation character


    That, in my opinion, would be MOTUC going out with a bang

    Haha. Same here. Suddenly, the Horde is part of POP! Well you know what? Good. Cause it is. The Horde was created for POP. See my signature below.
