    No, I wouldn't buy them, but I'm all for the idea of keeping Filmation (and NA if possible) out of the standard subscription and offering it as an add-on instead.

    This!

    Original Filmation Characters - bring´em on! But Variants? EASY pass for me. Seriously, I don´t need a yellow haired He-Man, a blue skinned Hordak or an even worse looking Burger King than we already have. (No offense to whoever likes those particular variants, just totally not my cup of tea).

    Big. Fat. No!

    I have ZERO interest in getting Filmation-copies of characters that have been done already or will be done in the Classics style. In my opinion, the draw of having the Filmation rights is to get Classics versions of characters who weren't "on the table" previously. I don't want FM He-Man, Skeletor, Duncan...etc. (Sorry! There's little I don't want, but I'd take Disco Skeletor or Smash Blade HM first.)
    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

    I don't think I understand this idea
    Are you suggesting
    a) Filmation variants as in "Filmation He-Man", "Filmation Captian Glenn (white repaint)", "Filmation Hordak (blue repaint)"?
    b) Filmation characters having their own sub, so that we can just get Scorpia, Frosta and Pludor via the Filmation sub?
    c) Filmationised versions of existing characters such as Evilseed, Count Marzo, Hawke etc?

    I would love a) or b). A Fiömation sub-line could be a good way to get the classic 80s figures out faster because slots would not be blocked by Filmation characters
    Awesome sticker included!

    I would buy an add on Filmation sub if Mattel would repaint the figures to Filmation accurate colors and added Filmation accurate heads (but in the realistic Classic style), weapons and accessories.

    The end result would be for fans to take a original toy, mini-comic, Filmation and MYP variant of a character and mix and match them any way they wish to make their preferred version of a character.

    No I really don't care for FM repaints!!!! Maybe a Skeletor if they do a new head on him but I really like Classics how they are.

    I think the key word here is "variants"

    New characters based on Filmation? YES!!

    I'm just not a fan of variants.

    Absolutely. I'm in the line for pretty much every figure they make. I bought the 30th Anniversy Sub too. The only figure I've passed on to date is Tytus and I would have passed on BG Evil Lyn if given the choice.

    I don't want more variants than what we have at the moment in MOTUC. So let's say I won't buy additional variants. If they keep the number to 4 a year, then I'll buy the variants I find attractive. As usual.

    Filmation variants? Not likely. I'm not excited about getting originals.

    Now, had the question been about minicomic variants, my answer would probably have been very different.

    I'm not really a fan of things like "Filmation Teela! Filmation He-Man! Filmation Skeletor!", so no... I would easily pass on something like this, personally. "Filmation Hordak!" is probably one of the only cases of a figure whose Filmation look I prefer to the original toy.

    You know, a few weeks ago I'd have said "yes" without thinking. Today, with the Demo-Man delay and the issues with quality control of my Snout Spout and Swifty, I'm not so sure.

    If they can be promised to be shipped out in a decent fashion taking quality control into mind and customer service, yea.

    I actually agree. EXCEPT for the one exception: Filmation Count Marzo. Different enough to be a worthwhile variant.

    No. I'm already spending enough on this line which I think has too many variants as is and for the most part I don't consider Filmation variants to be different enough.

    This. Otherwise, no to cartoon variants. Maybe Merman and Evil-Lyn, but mostly I would not want to spend money on Filmation refreshes of characters I already have unless that became the only MOTU line to get--and even then they'd all have to be different enough to make it worth my money.

    Basically this, there's about 3 Filmation variants I'd have (Clawful, Hordak and Marzo) but I can live without them.

    Now, if it was a seperate sub so that we can get the likes of Scorpia, Sea Hawk, Shokoti, Fang Man, Dark Dream and Madame Razz without cutting down on the number of POP, NA, vintage, comics and 200X figures, then bring it on

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!
