    Toyguru's A-List Princess of Power: Could he have picked better choices? [RUMOR]

    Let's debate who defines "Main PoP." Shouldn't Matty cater to the buck crowd as well? I see this line limping to the finish like JLU. Should the next PoP they select have more unique parts, so that in the effort of wringing out the last few characters, tooling money would be significantly less. That was the very issue he claimed plagued MOTUC vintage.

    Shouldn't character choice be delineated by new tooling NOW?

    Glimmer and Angella: I would PREFER to have unique tooling to match the toy, but with FILMation colors, and not be identical and plain in design as they were in the series.
    Castaspella: New tooling, goes towards Entrapta
    Mermista: Would have extensive new tooling, which is great!
    Sweet Bee: later reuse for vintage Catra's top, Double Trouble's boots/gloves(?)
    Spinerella: Netossa's girlfriend and companion piece for display; body re-use for Flutterina minus head and wings/dress
    Loo-Kee NO SLUGS
    Kowl NO SLUGS

    Netossa provides us almost with Peekablue and even Perfuma if they really wanted to skate by with reuse.

    After new tools, the rest are easy to knock out, even if in a more limited convention run. I know there is Madame Razz, etc, but the goal or intent of this thread is to show Matty that the rest of the line is easier to make if they selected just a FEW more informed choices NOW.

    Thoughts?

    I'm not that bothered about Sweet Bee, Spinnerella and Peekablue to be honest. I'd sooner have the ones Scott listed. Though I'd swap Castaspella and Mermista for Madam Razz and Kowl in a heartbeat!

    I DO NOT want Double Trouble whatsoever and definately won't buy her willingly.
    10 figures I'd like: 10/Filmation Tung Lashor, 9/Saurod, 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 6/Peekablue, 5/Hunga the Harpy, 4/Sssqueeze, 3/Filmation Clawful, 2/Dylamug, 1/Queen Angella.

    Most of my exposure to POP is from Secret of the Sword and the Christmas special. Glimmer and Angella totally make sense. Don't know enough about the other two but assume they are important to the story. Shocked that Madam Razz wouldn't make that cut. Seems like Glimmer and Madam Razz would be the most important.

    Angella is an odd choice, I think. I don't really consider her an 'A-lister' beyond the fact that she's Glimmer's Mum.
    Mermista is another one I can take or leave, but I do admit that a figure of her would be a challenge for the 4H. Be interesting to see how they tackled her.

    Glimmer of course is a major player who I'd like to see in figure form, and my own bias demands that Castaspella *sigh* makes an appearance in the line. I'd like to see all done in their Filmation styles, I might add.

    If he's referring to strictly vintage toy POP toys, then I agree with those being the most "core", in addition to Kowl. We must get Kowl.

    However, if he is also including Filmation with that list, then Scorpia and Madame Razz/Broom are most certainly also "core", and to a lesser extent Sea Hawk.

    I want:

    Angella, Glimmer, Castaspella, Mermista, Peekablue, Flutterina, Sweet Bee, Spinnerella, Perfuma, and Double Trouble.

    I also REALLY want Entrapta, Kowl, and Loo-Kee.

    Don't even get me started on listing Filmation PoP figures I want...

    Madam Razz, like Scorpia, would fall under the Filmation banner, so she still might get made. I still have hope that they'll find someway to fit Kowl into the line.

    Netossa provides us almost with Peekablue and even Perfuma if they really wanted to skate by with reuse. Casta gets us Entrapta (and though VERY unpopular, I would prefer the animation colors to keep the cartoon aesthetic universal, though I MUCH prefer the gold). It broke my heart that Cringer was almost a slug. Loo-Kee and Kowl BOTH need to be as fully-articulated as Orko. It's only fair.

    If they added these 4, the rest are easy to knock out, even if in a more limited convention run. I know there is Madame Razz, etc, but the goal or intent of this thread is to show Toy Guru that the rest of the line is easier to make if they selected just a FEW more informed choices NOW.

    I thought that was the whole point was slowly bringing in characters that have unique parts to be latter used on other figures that need lots more uniquely tooled parts. it would be less on cost for the company each year to do it this way & it insures that the line will eventually get to every character.
    I would like for motuc to reach its goal for getting to every character in the motu universe (with a few exceptions).

    That's definitely what I would call the A-list. They're all from the first series of figures and other than Mermista, they all appear in quite a few episodes. I'd consider Kowl and Imp A-list, too, but they might be counting those guys differently.

    Honestly, I'm surprised that Mermista made the A-list considering she only appeared in 4 episodes, but I know she is quite a fan demanded character so no harm there.

    Loo-kee probably appeared episodes than anyone except She-ra and Swiftwind, though.

    Add one Kowl to the mix and I'd LOVE this list! Mostly cause of Glimmer!
    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.

    Those figures sounds about right, but I would also prefer for Double Trouble and Entrapta to make it onto the list, too. Entrapta because she's a Horde member!

    Those are perfect choices, but we gotta also have Kowl and Sea Hawk.

    glimmer, castaspella & angella are definite a-listers. they are top on my list.
    sea hawk, peekablue, perfuma, crimson furry, hunga the harpy, king argho & vultar are on my wish list.
    i really hope that motuc can eventually get to them.

    I agree. Flutterina would look great as a MOTUC figure! Her wings would be gorgeous! Same for Peekablue.

    That pretty much matches up with what I would pick. Although given that they gave us Netossa I would personally sub in Spinerella over Mermista for display purposes.

    I kind of wish Netossa wasn't coming given the change in focus and character selection now.

    that is a good list from tg.
    three core characters & a unique tooled character. i'm very curious how she will be executed? maybe like the king hisss figure with removable torso/legs. may have legs that can be swapped with the fish tail.

    At the very least, he should include Entrapta. It's my understanding Scorpia is a Filmation character but if not, she should be included in the POP list.

    I think he's got it right too. The only thing I would add to that list is Kowl. Kowl is an essential part of PoP.

    Now, the Filmation fan in me is screaming Scorpia, Razz, Hunga and Seahawk. But they're not PoP, they're filmation, and I'd like to think that's how we'll get them in the line-up.

    As for Sweetbee, Flutterina and Peekablue -- make them Vykron style - one buck three heads and accessories.

    I think Scorpia already made the cut. I know the 4 horsemen desperately want to work on her.

    I definitely love the 4 characters Scott selected. I would prefer him sneaking in the other 4 for tooling bank purposes. Loo-Kee and Kowl can sneak in with characters lacking accessories, or even together: Kowl carded centered like Orko with Loo-Kee peeking out upside down behind the MOTUC logo :-)

    I agree with MGM, but I'll be disappointed if we don't get a Peekablue. She's just not A-list though, and I get that. However, if she shows up in 2013 trust and believe I will be doing a happy dance.
    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.
