I have to say I am a little relieved by this.
As already mentioned by others, we have our 12 standard figures, our quarterly figures, our 30th anniversary figures, our 4 quarterly large SKUs (one of which is $60, the most expensive item yet), we have Granamyr (the most expensive item by the time he comes out) plus new stands coming out. All this, plus the TOD Sorceress and SDCC exclusive... I think 2012 is almost at the tipping point for most, and while I wouldn't take anything away from what we're getting next year, I think adding would be perilous.
Personally, without taking space or finances into account, I want everything released NOW... but realistically, I think we're at the breaking point and I think many people are near the brink of wallet and/or space fatigue.
It would have been nice if we could have gotten at least one Evil Warrior vehicle in 2012, especially since it's the 30th anniversary.
I'll be interested to see what comes out next year in the second half of the year for the oversized beast. Perhaps we'll get Stridor or Night Stalker to compensate.

The Cradle Will Rock As I'm Drivin' Down Highway 40 In My Big Ol' Pick Up Truck.
Just want to echo what others have already said; I'm stoked for Granamyr. I think it is great to get stuff that we've never had before.
I am sure another vehicle will come, in time.
Although I did want another vehicle, if it's because they are putting all their effort into granmyr, it's going to be one hell of a figure. It will be the biggest we've seen I hope.
I am totally okay with this. I've wanted a granamyr even since he told he-man to chop down that tree...... i've always thought he-man a bit of a wuss for not doing it. lol
Religion = The Horde
Atheism = The Great Rebellion
I definitely want Granamyr but I wanted another vehicle too.
... and I also am still really eager to get the Griffin. That was a completely unexpected (and very welcome) reveal a couple months back. Something that I always thought would be cool to have.
That one is like a living vehicle... so, I guess, there's our bad dudes' vehicle for 2012...
I’d rather Granamyr than a vehicle, to be honest. So I can’t say this bothers me much. He better be good, though!
I'm thinking (unless the WR is a big doozy next month) (somehow), we'll see two vehicles in 2013.
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, and for the love of Grayskull, ODIPHUS!!!
On top of that, and this may sound loopy coming from a guy that collects action figures, but vehicles are for play. I dont play with them anymore ..... I dont really know how to explain it, because of course the figures were for play as well .... vehicles although welcomed, seem childish to me lol .... even typing that I think I sound crazy.
Anyways, if you have the old road ripper, and I fairly sure your MOTUC figures will fit pretty well on it. The open leg vehicles always tended to be a bit bigger, so i bet scale isnt that bad.
At least that can tide you over until you get one! = )

This is a bummer, but I have strong hopes for another vehicle in 2013!! It would make sense for Mattel to produce at least one per year, especially if and when the Wind Raider sells like hot cakes. I guess I just dont see why producing Grannamyr means they cannot make a vehicle as well.......
If it is outside the sub, they should have the flexibility to do both.....
Fingers crossed for that awesome Battle Ram in 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm a bit bummed since I've been dreaming of Battle-Ram since this line started. And after seeing one in the convention pics last year, was really looking forward to spending money on it. For me Granamyr will be a pass, but I know there are many who will want one. I hope he sells well enough to convince Mattel that there is Market for a larger vehicle like Battle Ram.
No vehicle in 2012 really sucks!
I need at least all the vintage vehicles redesigned for my MOTUC collection!
NA vehicles and 200X would be definitely a plus.
I'm fine with this, I'd rather sacrafice a remake of a vehicle, then a most wanted large scale beast that has never been done before. besides I need to save every penny on my Horde Troopers. Granamyr, Horde Troopers and another vehicle would be too much. I'm already worried where am I going to put the Wind Raiders and Griffin. Heck I'm not sure Swift Wind is going to fit properly on my shelf.
All I can say that is a terrible news for me. They could've used the Star Sisters' awful budget for a decent vehicle instead of Granymyr's...
Another bad decision by Mattel.
Epic Metal music rocks the universe.
I'm starting to get REALLY worried that Granamyr sucked up a LOT of 2012's tooling budget.
I mean...Granamyr and most of the figures we've seen for 2012 seem to have quite a bit of tooling. What's the rest of 2012 going to look like? A He-Man in every colour imaginable?
I will probably get Granamyr...but...I have no idea where I will put him. I don't "wish him away"...but life would have been okay without him...for me. I still have no where to put Tytus and Megator and I REALLY wanted them! Big figures and vehicles = uh-oh for me.
I honestly think they need to go 'back to basics' for 2013. As I said earlier - concentrate on making the figures the best they can be, instead of squandering the budget on the large items.
