    Cherry Picker: What Do You Pick

    I tried searching for this and was surprised it came up with nothing!
    If its been done before...oops!

    Anyhow...

    Cherry Pickers, what do you pick?

    Vintage Only
    NA
    POP
    MYP
    Filmation
    Combination (vintage + POP, or NA + vintage, etc.)
    Other (whatever I like, or whatever, whatever)

    I'm just interested...

    You should've made the poll where users can pick multiple options. It would be much easier that way to get a correct reading.

    I picked COMBINATION.

    Mostly, vintage, Filmation, and some MYP. Even some concept stuff.

    I had to sub this year to get 2bad and modulok. The rest I will sell or trade.

    I started out getting just the original 12 back figures. Of those only Teela remains, and unless prices come down or someone wants to trade for something I don't want in the coming year, I will probably have to do with out.
    I've always loved the Horde, so I have most of those, again with the exception of Shadow Weaver.
    I grabbed a Re Release King Grayskull, Green Goddess, Keldor, and Deamo man because they fit the history.
    I got the Giants because they were cheap.
    The only figure I have gotten from matty up to now is Octavia, and I should have waited and got her cheaper on ebay.

    It's a combination... I'm collectin' MOTUC to finish what I began in 1984. But I aint a vintage collector, for example, this year, if I could afford a subscription I had to sell only these figures:
    1. Snake Face
    2. Clamp Champ
      (I already have 'em as vintage)
    3. Netossa
    4. Castaspella
      (I don't collect heroic POP figures except Adora, Sea Hawk and She-ra)
    5. Karatti
    6. NA He-Man
      (I don't collect NA figures I only want Crita)
    7. Nepthu
    8. Strong-Arm
      (I don't like 'em)
    9. Lord Dactus
      (I don't collect 200x figures with few exceptions)
    10. King He-Man
      (it isn't in my canon)
    I know 2 angels: their names are Jedi_Kunle and Mikethedrummer!

    Worship the Snake Goddess!
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...-at-some-point

    Round 2, vote for
    Tuvar, Baddrah, Crita, Granita, Gray, Colonel Blast and the Snake Goddess

    Other - Whatever I like after the product has made it through production. Plus I can go at my own pace which is nice and buy from a multi subber or auction hunt on ebay, find a deal on amazon, etc...
    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.

    Combination- I like most from every faction, to the extent that I finally subbed. Still, I'll pick up multiples of my favorites as well as playing catch up with previous releases. Additionally, multiples for customs will continue to be a focus.

    And now that MOTUC is at Big Lots, the deals on figures just get better and better. For those of us that can wait, of course.

    I'm not a subscriber, and never will be. Here's why:

    I remember when Fang-Man came out earlier this year and he was going for $100+ before and shortly after his sale because he was a "sub exclusive". Two months ago I got him for less than half that shipped off of Ebay. Simply because I waited and wasn't in a hurry to get him. And I really wanted him. So yes I paid more than $27 for him, but I didn't have to pay $500 on stuff that I didn't want just to get Fangman.

    Anyway, to answer the poll - I collect a variety of Vintage, Filmation, and 200X in that order. Keep your POP, NA, and concept junk.

    I picked "other" though maybe "combination" would be more accurate. I tend to go for the more barbarian-ish female figures. I'm just a big fan of the Amazon sub-genre and kind of make up my own universe as I go on. I do admit, I missed out on some choice picks in 2013 like Octavia and Shokoti due to a struggling year, but looking to pick them up soon in the aftermarket. I do tend to make exceptions, for example, will look into getting Plundor, and make good use of the cat-beasts.

    Although I subscribed for 2014 (and 13's "Lite" sub) I voted for combination.
    I lean more towards the "other branches" (POP, NA 200X)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I picked OTHER, but only because I'm still fairly new to the line and haven't had the chance to sub yet (although I did sign up with yodafreakmaster for 2014). HOWEVER, when it comes to catching up, there are certain figures I will never buy... Photog, Vykron, the Star Sisters (well...I wouldn't mind a Tallstar). So, I guess I'm playing catch - up cherry-picker, leaving out the figures I don't like, but there are VERY few.
