Confused as to why a new Roboto and Hsss should take away from a new character? Aren't they A-List Variants? Do them instead of the spin blades!
"Don't crowd me boys!"
Maybe it's the way I said it, but I was hping for a 200X Hsss and Roboto, and yes, in the A-List Varant slots
I'd so love a new improved Roboto variant...
Press down on dragon's head. It will bite off your frickin' fingers !!!
I too missed Tytus and paid double for him on eBay. See how that works Matty?
Please watch my videos!
2013 map has got to be a new adventures map of some kind. That would be cool.
The only thing that is getting old really fast are the questions in Q&A. No wonder Mattel are just copying and pasting their replies. I read these queries thinking, oh, god, here comes another WR question, just the same query asked slightly differently. Man, if customers hate Mattel's responses that much, why do they keep on repeating themselves? I work in retail, and personally I hate it when customers sound like broken records.

During the recent walkthrough with Pixel Dan (at Toy Fair), you mentioned that long term customers will appreciate some of the future releases because, as far as I understood, they will enable them to combine parts of the same character into an "ultimate figure"? Could something similar apply to these 3 characters?
Evil Master of Thinking!
I would prefer a 200X King Hsss over a Buzz-Saw Hordak ANY day.
I don't think anyone wants a Buzz Saw Hordak with the lack of action features in the line and him looking no different than the original Hordak.
I loved my Buzz Saw Hordak as a kid, but definitely dont want one in MOTUC. I guess a Buzz Saw accessory would be a cool nod but it's not a necessity at all.
I would however LOVE a Roboto variant. Maybe a "battleground one" repainted in mini comics orange. I dunno if I want a 200x one though, because it you "Classicize™" him he would basically be the same thing with a difference head and a couple gun on his shoulders as a backpack or something.
I think in some sense we lost the idea of this line; where it was originally suppose to just be a FIGURE collector club first and foremost! When Matty and crew saw the success with the immediate sellouts and having of all people the 4 Horsemen designing these characters we lit up like wildfire. This led them to creating new additions to keep the line going further (beasts, dioramas, vehicles) but didn't realize as much as this is cool... we want the figures first (at least I do)! Just knowing the size of the figures and without any publicity or other form of support (comic, cartoon) to create anything else is asking for trouble and taking risk for something already under a microscope. But guilty as charged, when it's the 4 horsemen, you can't say NO! I think if anything else can be made other than the figures, let that organically happen. I know it helps create a break in the figure output and gives the line longer life, but I think if this line is in trouble where figure amounts are being reduced, or reissues are being cancelled due to cost of... Stick with the figures!!!
P.S. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see that Battle Ram, as well as a Talon Fighter and Land Shark!
