The use of "Publically" makes me cringe.

Really, this answer has to rank up there with "Moss Man is not a bath toy" for the "Clueless Answer of the Decade" award. It is so out of touch with the issues being addressed it isn't even humorous in an ironic way...

Answers from hordak.de will be coming this weekend. I know. a little late, but better than nothing.
Fans Choice Contest Question: You said that only Club Eternia 2013 subscribers will be able to vote for the final figure that's gonna be released next year. But there also are fans who didn't subscribe directly, but through friends or import shops who placed multiple subscriptions. Can they vote through their "middlemen"?
QUOTE For every 2013 sub you buy you will get one code to let you vote in the poll. If you or a reseller wants to pass those codes on to friends or other customers to use and vote they are welcome to. But it is one code per sub bought. And the window to use the codes and vote will be limited to the time of the sale. Once the sub sale ends, the voting will also be closed regardless of how many sub holders use their codes and vote.
Another Fans Choice Contest Question: Let's say, an overwhelming majority of subscribers vote for one particular figure. Does that mean that we ain't gonna see the other candidates for a couple years?
Yes. We will only be doing the winner in 2013 but it is possible we could revisit other "non winners" in future years. end quote
Where have I been?
This is new(s) to me.
So are they basically canning vehicles?
Well they can re-use the dragon buck for a green variant and other dragons. Not sure how they'd sell under the price point, but they can't re-use vehicles the same way.

The original answer he gave sounded much more optimistic, more about the Wind Raider under performing and less about no vehicles anytime soon because of the Wind Raider. We know the dragon buck is taking up 2012 resources, so that has nothing to do with the WR.
I'm wondering if things have changed since then.

Vehicles in a movie year? Uh oh...

*ears perk up*
A skinny buck would definitely be a cool addition. There are quite a few figures that could use this including the ones you listed and others like Modulok and other vintage figures. If and when we get to these figures this is certainly something we can look into.
So wait, Modulok is theoretically going to be based on the slim torso vintage figure, while Grizzlor (who was also somewhat slim in the arms/legs) is bulked up with the basic MOTUC parts, and Leech (who was a little bulkier in the torso) was slimmed down into the basic MOTUC parts, are changed to fit the line's shared-parts needs? I'm confused.
I mean, I'm happy either way as long as he's made but still...
That answer about the vehicles is no good. Do over!
More Vintage NA for MOTUC in 2017!!

Great .org transactions: sdilks, Man-E-Toys, bigassbuzz x2, Climan, wolvie3579, air23cnhit, Jestermon, Skystalker
Isn't this line like planned one year in advance so the Horsemen can sculpt the figures and or accessories required at a time?
What do they mean that they don't know if the Keldor blades will be available to be shown at NTYF or SDCC?
Also Boo! to the maybe in a movie year for vehicles!
FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
So Fisto's fist is unintentionally removable? Looks like Mattel's bad QC actually benefits a figure for once.

From Mattel's point of view: Has the Wind Raider been a success and can we now expect more vehicles down the line, maybe for the beginning of 2013?
No, the Windraider only performed "okay" which makes it doubtful we would tackle another vehicle in the near future. Maybe in a movie year if the line goes wider.
Aaaand... In the "2012 is gonna be a great year" section... Another bad news ! Vehicles just went down the drain ! At first, it was "no vehicle in 2012". Now, it's "in a movie year" (just like Castle Grayskull). And "in a movie year", to me, just equals to "never". Because there's still no date planned for a MOTU movie release !
We'll need a lot of good news (and not only reveals-wise) at NYTF to reassure us. I hope people who have/had subs will have the certainty that the ongoing mess will be fixed once and for all. I also hope the figures that will be revealed are some fans favorites. We know Geoff's 30th annniversary fig will be shown, but that's hardly a requested figure so far. So I hope the 3 other figures revealed will be awesome and mindblowing...

Oh well. As I doubt there will ever be a movie, I doubt there will ever be a Battle Ram. And even if there is a movie, it's just still just a 'maybe'.
I don't know why they don't just add it to the sub.
