    Dylamug vs Granita?

    So Granita and Dylamug are two of the more demanded characters remaining that would command a ton of new tooling. (Not counting oversized figures like Sagitar.) For my own curiosity I thought it would be fun to pit these two against each other in a poll.

    If 2017 could only include one of these two figures due to budgeting, which would you be forced to chose?

    All respect to this poll is given, but why not just to campaign for both to debut in 2017?

    Granita wins. Though I believe Dylamug is the more important figure, his design is hideous. I would much rather a A) new female, B) new comet warrior, C) new cartoon figure.

    She clearly is my choice, through rational. but with pure filmation nostalgia, obviously Dylamug is the winner. But Granita is the better choice.

    Granita.

    Although with regard to Tooling Wars over popular characters, I'd pit Dylamug against Hunga. Both would be 100% new sculpts, while Granita could at least share some basic female parts...

    Chose Dylamug.

    As a prototype concept, and as a character in the latest MoTU media, I feel he ekes out a little greater importance.

    Even though Dylamug is a villain, I have to go with Granita. Dylamug looks like a crappy design to me. And this coming from the guy who likes M.O.D.O.K.

    c.) Don't really care about either one.

    But I agree I don't like Dylamug's design at all, so Granita by default?

    I can't vote on this. If we get a 2017 Colletor's Choice sub, and it certainly looks like we will, I can't imagine us not getting both by then. One could be a SDCC exclusive at a higher price point. In fact, since we got a Rokkon & Stonedar pack at SDCC, it would be entirely appropriate to get Granita that way ... perhaps in a 2-pack with Facet!
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2016!!!

    I personally want Granita. I recognize the importance of Dylamug, but don't personally care if I ever have him. So, Granita wins.

    I love the Horde and Dylamug is one of the few characters I would really like to have that have not been announced or released.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Obviously most of us want both. I just wanted the poll to have people think and make a tough choice. Figured it would make a nice discussion and these guys are on fairly equal footing in-terms of wants. I'm kind of surprised that Granita has a small early lead. I was thinking Dylamug might take off by sheer virtue of being a Horde member.

    Easy choice for me BUT I would want both to be released in the next sub or even next year.

    Dylamug gets my vote. He's Horde, he's an evil robot & he's freakishly odd and unique, which fits perfect with MOTU. I view him as the Horde "drill sergeant" and he is one of the few villains to have ever knocked out She-ra...like a boss!

    Personally, Granita.

    But they BOTH should be included in 2017 (along with Hunga the Harpy).

    As much as I don't care for Dylamug, I believe he should be released as there seems to be lots of love for him. But Granita would be cooler IMHO

    Dylamug, Granita, Lodar, Miro and Hunga keep appearing at the top of most of the polls. These 5 characters would likely help sell another Collectors Choice Sub in 2017.

    The lovely folks here on the org have got me looking twice at the ol' Dylamug character, and I'll admit that I now want this Arnim Zola cousin in Classics, as well.
    But, given the above question, for all the right reasons (and a few of the wrong ones, I'm sure), I gotta go with Granita.

    Really can't just pick one? It's more of a desert island style question than anything. This has nothing to do with what may or may not be released. If the Joker has bombs strapped to the tooling for both Dylamug and Granita, which figure do you save?
