Right now, www.toynewsi.com has a poll on their main page about MOTUC:
If you want to see MOTUC continue, I urge you to vote YES in their poll. I'm sure Mattel will look at it with great interest. You do not need to register. Just go to www.toynewsi.com and vote.Do you care if Mattel cancels Masters of the Universe Classics?
Yes - 40%
No - 32%
Never collected in the first place - 28%
Total votes: 1196

I want the MOTUC line to continue in 2017, but I'm NOT going to vote on that poll. I think it's damaging to the lines future since it's open to anyone to vote which is going to sway the results. Anyone who dislikes MOTU or even Mattel and has never bought a MOTUC item is going to vote NO. All it will do is give Mattel more amunition to cancel the line.
At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!
I'm still dying for certain figures in this line: King (or Captain) Miro, Enchantress, Illumina, Melog, the Twiggets, key variants: Toy She-Ra vs Toy Catra, 200X Sorceress, etc. There are so many awesome characters we could still get.

I voted and i voted: Yes.
Of course, what else would i vote for, i want more new characters to be made in classics style like Zilora, Sagitar, Drissi, Lady Slither, Fang-Or, Granita and i finally want Delora(for me preferable in her FILMATION look) and Hawke(in her 200X look if i would have something to say) getting their own distinctive looks and make them two different characters once and for all!
voted for the line to continue hope it helps

Looking forward to the rest of 2016 with Collectors Choice, Club Grayskull & Thundercats.........Excited for 2017 with Brian Flynn of Super7 & Four Horsemen taking over the MOTUC's, Club Grayskull and Hopefully Thundercats collectors lines
I voted YES because I care about the line. Cancelling MOTUC might also affect the new Thundercats line. Let's all hope that both lines would survive 2016.
I voted as well. I don't think it can hurt.
The big problem with these characters doesn't really lie in keeping Delora and Hawke separate, but rather in what to do with the fact that there are three different conflicting Deloras (minicomic "Native American" Delora with a look totally unrelated to the rest of the Avionians, Ladybird "blue blonde" Delora, and Filmation "blonde Hawke" Delora; the first two being called Stratos's wives while the third being called his sister).
If I were to choose, I'd first release a Filmation Delora/Hawke with alternate heads (and a "repaint" of the Staff of Avion now properly cast in golden-colored plastic, in order to avoid the paint-chipping syndrome of the one that came with Icer). That's the most important look in my view, and would cover both characters in one go; so I'd definitely prioritize this version as the first (and possibly only ever) release. And I'd probably call this release "Hawke" (and make her Stratos's sister in her bio, so that a possible later 200X-based variant could be called "Battleground Hawke" or something, which ideally would also include an alternate novel 200X blonde Delora head).
Whereas I'd probably reserve the name "Delora" for a possible subsequent release of Ladybird Delora (whose bio would definitely make her Stratos's wife). And only afterwards I would consider the non-Avionian-looking minicomic Delora look (not sure how I'd tackle the naming here and whether or not to make it another character [possibly Stratos's second wife, since we don't know what Avion society thinks of polygamy], though maybe just going with "Battleground Delora" could be good enough if "Battleground Teela" was thought OK for a variant that looks nothing like the regular Teela and that could have been made its own character).
(*) Not sure why, and this is just my wild hypotheses, but I guess maybe it could have had something to do with the ones involved possibly having had a "vintage minicomic purist" preference/bias for the minicomic version being the "true" version of the character "Delora" (but one that doesn't fit with the aesthetics of the rest of Avionians, so that they took and merged elements from both Filmation Delora and Filmation Hawke to create the Avionanian-looking 200X Hawke character, while keeping the name "Delora" on the backburner reserved for the minicomic version), similarly to their "vintage purist" preference/bias towards cardback Mer-Man as their "true" Mer-Man and against Filmation Mer-Man.

28% say no......... get the _______ outta here!
At this point 2017 is already green lighted or cancelled and there is not much we can do or say that will sway the bean counters. We are just going to have to wait for news either way. I really hope an announcement is coming soon as this mass hysteria (with no confirmation either way) is really getting old.
Maybe the one that started all this hysteria should come forward with more than just vague hints.
One poll isn't going to cause Mattel to make any decisions for or against the MOTUC line. Quite simply it all comes down to business, which basically means money. Is it profitable to continue the MOTUC line? That is the only question Mattel is asking.
I love these toys, and I will support them for as long as they are produced. Also, Mattel hasn't officially said anything either way about the future of the toys. I will just assume that the line is going to continue until they absolutely say without a doubt the line is cancelled/pulled and people's money is returned.
49-28 now...let's see what comes.
Squishy Duck Man, Man-E-Toys, JOAH-MAN, Jawbridge, Zuff-Man, Mern-Ra, He-Ryno, tattoojunkie74, zodak74, bigassbuzz
Voted YES and its 50 - 28 now.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete”
Another yes vote over here.
My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Lodar, Hunga the Harpy, Sharella, Snake Goddess & Hawke
