    I would love to get these figures, especially Veena and Eldor. But Mattel really should do those figures after 2014, and concentrate on vintage characters first. If they do otherwise, there won't be enough subcriptions for 2014, because Scott broke his promise. I think there could be a strong year 2015 without vintage figures but with all these amazing Filmation, 200x, PoP, NA and Comic Characters.

    ELDOR, for sure!

    Veena.. possibly.. not a biggie for me.

    the rest.. no thanks! we have so many other figures that were produced which dont belong in the motu mythos imo.

    Yes, Eldor is really a must have! I'm sure Mattel is aware of Eldor.

    About the other, a big yes for Veena. But I'd prefer Goat Man, Prahvus or Batros than Gladior and Beast Lord (even if they are really cool).

    I'm sure it's not the end for obscure characters Don't worry!

    I hope we get them all! Especially Beast Lord...
    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

    I hope Eldor and to a lesser extent Veena make it into MOTUC one day... I really don't care about the other two.

    Complete the core factions of POP and NA, give us fan favourites' Filmation and Vintage figures and if there's still some life in MOTUC after that, throw one or two concepts characters a year...
    20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
    Evil: Evilseed
    POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
    Horde: Imp / Vultak / Hunga
    POG: Veena
    SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
    Rock People: Granita
    NA: Darius / Sebrian

There's some fuzzy thinking going on in people's brains if the 30th figures have any affect whatsoever on their decision to subscribe next year. Those were specifically separated out because they would not necessarily appeal to all MOTUC fans. And if they simply weren't made, there wouldn't have been 6 other MOTUC figures made, there would have been no extras made. And if they wanted to do a separate 6-figure POP subscription, they could've, whether or not 30th were made or not. 30th had no connection to the main line whatsoever and even less next year since it won't exist anymore.
    I speak for myself here, but I think it was bad timing that arguably all the worst, underwhelming, and unwanted MOTUC figures were revealed around the same time as the 2013 sub sale - The Mighty Spector in May, Snake Man-At-Arms in June, Vykron in July, and Sir Laser Lot in August. 4 months of hated unknowns by some. Add that with another mainly unwanted 3 pack reveal of the Fighting Foe Men (I actually like them), on top of higher prices and continued DR problems, it hurt sub sales. All this leaves a bad taste in the mouth of fans, and casual subscribers. At the end of the day, although a lot of these were out of the regular sub, it hurt the fantastic execution and nostalgia of MOTUC.

    So, I hope we don't see Beast Lord or Gladiator, they represent inferior MOTUC, and hurt more than they help to keep the line and interest strong.

    I care about Veena moreso than Eldor, but I would get him too. And I hope she's in her normal MYP colors too.

    But we aren't children. That's how we can easily buy the Filmation version of Queen Marlena, a character who isn't known for her battlefield prowess. Heck, fans want background characters such as Dekker, Melaktha, King Miro, Master Sebrian and Eldor.

    Dude I totally want an Eldor, he is the Obi-Wan Kenobi of MOTU. I honestly feel he adds something because he is not a warrior or beast, he would be somewhat unique. We have almost a hundred warriors, we need at least one wise old man. I also used my 3 sub votes to try and get a Songster, MOTU needs its minstrel. Who else will spread the tales of the He Man!

    How about Bow? He's a bard & I have to believe that he followed Adora/She-Ra to Eternia, lovesick puppy that he is. All the same, I hope we get Songster eventually though hopefully not as garishly dressed as the original.

    Now to the question at hand: Eldor - an ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE!! He's one of the first characters I thought of when this line was announced along with He-Ro. The Line will be incomplete without him.

    Veena - I would definitely love to have her! Grayskull needs his Queen & she's our best shot at getting a "200X-esque Sorceress" type character in the line. I don't imagine that most folks would go for a third version of our dear Sorceress at this point. (Personally, I wanted Battleground Teela to be a new Character & I'm treating Vykron as 3 new Characters rather than 1 dude with 3 suits.) Plus, I would greatly prefer her in the 200X colors to set her apart.

    The 2012 Mini Comic Characters: I would be interested, but their chances are rather slim at this point for the foreseeable future.


    By the way, where exactly did we see & get the names "Red Shadow" & "Bandwidth"? Are they in the second 2012 Mini? I can see a character that might be Red Shadow in one of the battle panels, but I'm not sure about Bandwidth (funeral panel? I just figured that was Gladiator). Any clarification would be greatly appreciated!

    Long Live MOTU!!!!
    Now & Forever!!!!

    I would love to see any and all figures from the mini-comics, prototypes, cartoons, movies, and concept. Eldor and Veena (out of this posted list) especially. But since Scott said they're gonna "stop with the concept figures" (quote from video at 1:42: Toyguru Mekaneck Preview & 2013 Subscription Update on 30 July), I don't see it happening. They're gonna make the figures that already had a figure (MOTU, POP, NAHM), and some from the cartoons (Jetlag and FILMation most notably although I haven't heard anything against MYP). I wish we could see the line expand with more than just repeat figures, but many have spoken [loudly] and new figures won't be made anymore past the Foe Men trio. Phooey!

    Luckily, I made a custom Eldor a few years ago, so my collection will have at least that.

    I want Eldor with his Book of Living Spells (it better open and have real holograms, just like we remember! ), and Veena (MYP colours!). The others...no thank you.

    Beast Lord is Beastman with a new head, basically. Kind of boring, in my opinion. Gladiator didn't do anything and all you see of him in the comic: his head and hand in the group shot, the back of his cape in the last shot. We don't even know what he looks like!

    I'm sure we'll get Eldor at some point in the next 2 years since he's been a highly requested character for years, not to mention he's already been mentioned in He-Ro's bio and seen in the mini-comic. Veena, I'd hope we'd get to her as well since she's Grayskull's wife, not to mention the first Sorceress (that we know of).

    As for the others, I'd like to see them in the line at some point and hope they will, but not until most of the heavy hitters from the other factions (NA, PoP, 200x, Filmation, Vintage) have been produced.

    Regards,
    Victor P.

    I think TG has a way of speaking, ass backwards, some times leaves it open for interpretation, so concept to me is like Sir Lasor Lot and Spector, not Eldor or Veena, they are not concepts, they are realized characters...at least in my opinion, so they dont count with the no more concept figures idea. IMO

    Yeah, I'd like to see the character before I decide if I'd be interested in a figure, lol.
    Beast Lord might be okay, kind of cool. Veena is a no-brainer, not on my top ten list though.
    I understand the desire for Eldor, and he should be made, but I'm not that interested in him tbh.

    Eldor please!!! We've waited so long! I really want to see what they come up with for his Book of Living Spells!

    I'd take Veena with Angella's wings... especially if they include a second MYP Sorceress head with her...

    I want the following from MYP:

    Veena
    Prahvus
    Dactys
    Odiphus

    From NA:

    Mara
    Hydron
    Sebrian
    Crita
    Flogg
    Quakke

    Darius wasn't even in the cartoon... I'm not sure why everyone is so hot for him. He's cool I guess but I'd rather have any of those other NA figures.
    A Want List of Sorts: Eldor, Imp, Filmation Hordak, Sweet Bee, Arrow, NA She-Ra, Spinnerella, Mermista, Gwildor, Tung Lasher, Ninjor, Lizard Man, Dragstor, Huntara, ... and all the other POP & NA characters.
