    Would you support a PoP 30th Anniversary line in 2015?

    With the success of the 30th Anniversary subscription evident (at least in terms of sales) I am wondering who would support a PoP 30th Anniversary Subscription. This would still be comprised of MOTUC figures but all would be from the PoP faction. It is increasingly evident that there is almost an overwhelming number of PoP figures still to be released and that they are a polarizing faction for many. I would think that a separate subscription for the 30th anniversary would be a win win for both supporters and detractors alike as it would allow those who desperately want more PoP to get several figures (probably 6) in one year while giving those who are not happy about getting PoP figures included in their MOTUC subs a year that would be entirely free of them. This is all assuming, of course, that MOTUC in general lasts until 2015. I have a feeling it will

    Let me be clear on what I am proposing (and what several PoP fans have been asking for when discussing this possibility). This would NOT work like the current MOTU 30th line, which is comprised of entirely NEW characters. This would be comprised of established PoP characters who have yet to be released (like Castapella, Sea Hawk, Madame Razz, and Mermista ... although I'm sure a couple of those will be out by 2015 but you all get the point). I personally wouldn't mind if they did the create a character contest again for the final figure but the other 5 should be fan demanded characters.

    So what does everyone think? Vote and then discuss!

    Another good choice which many would probably vote for is the No! Not if it is handled in the same fashion as the MOTU 30th anniversary figures were.

    No, I like 2-3 PoP figures a year.

    I do think that PoP fans should beat the war drums amongst the ranks to see if they could get anything commemorative going with re-releases of the original figures like MOTU did in 2000.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I detailed in the post that what I'm proposing (and most PoP who have advocated for such a line seem to want) is NOT at all like what the MOTU 30th Ann. sub is. This is to garner interest in a PoP 30th line that is comprised only of established characters, not new characters created by those who have various levels of involvement with the MOTUC line.

    I'm surprised that you of all people wouldn't buy a PoP sub for one year. Imagine the line ending in 2016 and still having not having gotten to SEVERAL of the rebellion members, possibly one of them being Peekablue!

    Yes, there is that chance. However, there are so many great characters from so many different areas of the property I like getting a few from each area annually. Plus I'm not much for adding any additional figures onto an already expensive sub.

    I am really starting to wonder if we're going to be getting a Spinnerella & Netossa 2-pack for the 4th quarter though. It would boost the factions numer by 2 with 1 sku ismilar to how the Star Sisters did 3 for 1 sku. I'm pretty sure once Netossa is released Peekablue won't be far behind, in my mind they parts share.

    I understand that but I just think that we should reiterate our point to Scott so he doesn't entertain the idea of having Carrot Top or Snooky lend their "celebrity status" to the line by designing PoP figures. They need to remain in their fields(whatever it is they're famous for) of expertise.

    I agree. I would also be interested in the same thing for NA for all the people who are scared they won't see their favorites ever get released ... I believe the 30th for NA is 2019 right?

    I would like to see a 30th sub for pop learn from the mistakes of the MOTU and be some combination of a CA-A-C contest winner(s), Prototype type chracters, new characters designed by the people we want (4hmen etc), perhaps a toy version of a character when that toy design is really different from filmation.

    I would support Mattel to make a POP sub, but I wouldn't buy it myself, because I only need other stuff from MOTUC

    I voted YES, b/c I would love to get some of the more Obscure figures from that line and it doesn't have to be based on just the ladies.

    how about any of the following:

    the horde inspector
    horde navy troops
    general sunder
    hunga the harpy
    modulok w/ 3 legs (filmation)
    light spinner
    twiggets 3 pack
    kowl & lookee 2 pack

    =)
    Can I get a "Hell Yeah" for Scorpia!!!

    I would be into this, but would hope that such a line would be properly book-ended by classic toy style costume versions of She-Ra and Catra. And that it would include a beast such as Enchanta or Sea Harp- something that would not fare well as a normal MOTUC release, but would please the PoP fans who want some of these classic toy creatures updated for the MOTUC line

    There are no options in this poll for my view on POP - so I'm not voting. I think POP has every right to be included in the current MOTUC and I'm glad it is. I would support a POP 30th sub line in addition to the POP that is already being included in MOTUC. Although, honestly, POP is actually part of MOTUC and has equal standing with the other figures, so POP-inspired Etherian characters should already be eligible in the current 30th celebration - it's supposed to celebrate all facets of the line from the start of it all 30 years ago.

    With all that being said, I love POP and can't wait for more figures to make it into the line!

    It would be great if it was possible for Mattel to bring some more members of the Great Rebellion as 30th Anniversary figures in 2015. I'd definitely appreciate that!

    I would but not as outlined in the OP.

    The PoP30th line if like would be exactly like the MOTU 30th line: 6 figures of brand new characters designed by say, a few Mattel designers, whohaveyou, with the final a contest winner.
    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

    Keep 'em in the current line, but I would make maybe a small sub set of figures such as Force Capt. Adora (Horde Suit), Blue Hordak and maybe some other figures might be interesting

    I feel like people who vote "No" are simply voting to keep POP figures out of the hands of POP fans.

    What the frick difference does it make to someone who isn't going to buy POP anyway whether or not there are 6 POP figures as a supplement to the regular subscription?? They won't be forced to buy them.

    Selfish.

    To one who is not going to buy PoP anyway, it makes no difference. However, to one who enjoys PoP but cannot commit to buying an add-on sub or being guaranteed to be at a computer on sale days it makes quite a bit of difference.

    Sorry, but I did need to bring up that not everyone who voted "No" doesn't want PoP fans to get figures.

    Not necessarily, I'm a pretty big POP fan myself but I don't want a 30th line like the 30th MOTU line. My "no" is based on the what I'm seeing from the current slop being put out. I don't want six created characters when some regulars still need made.

    Now if they would release good characters that were part of the original line to supplement the POP line and get the figures out faster then I would be all for that. It would be a great way to get us Madame Razz/Broom, Sea Hawk, Octavia, Vultak, Huntara, and Gen Sunder.

    Although a 30th POP line could give us a female counterpart for The Mighty Spector!!

    That was exactly what I described as constituting the 30th Anniversary sub the poll is based on. So you voted "no" against the very thing you described as what you want.

    I think your real beef should be with how the original poster worded the poll. I don't care if a separate 30th subscription for POP was made available, but I am not going to support it by buying it. Mattel would probably be more concerned with the overall number of people willing to buy a subscription than the percentages for or against it anyway. People voting "no" are not going to keep POP fans from getting this type of subscription off the ground. It's going to come down to the fact that there won't be enough people interested in purchasing this type of subscription.

    I agree and you would think anyone who does not like POP would be happy that 6 potential monthly figure slots would now be free for non POP characters. Not only selfish but completely stupid also. Oh well roll on Frosta!

    i'm voting no because no, i would not support it. by support i mean, pay money for it.

    would i care if they made a pop 30th line? nope. go for it. i would hope it sells well and folks get the figs they want.

    in fact, i find "YES! I want to get more of the great rebellion quicker!" to be a little scary because if you don't have a good amount of GRs by 2015...well...that's just not cool. i would hope the 2-3 (or more) pop per year includes more main characters and less never heard ofs (SSs).
