    Mini Comic subscription possible?

    Would it be realistic for Mattel to offer a subscription for 6 more MOTUC mini comics? They could be packaged with 6 figures re-deco'd in mini comic colors such as Prince Adam, Trap Jaw, Stratos, Teela (blonde), and Beast Man. This would also be a good opportunity for Mattel to give us some new accessories. Mattel could even organize an effort on Kickstarter.com for this. There are already some great examples customizers have created to help illustrate the potential of these products.

    While I'd be open to a few mini comic characters in the next two years (eg Prince Dakkon, Lodar, Rana, Queen of Kex...), I'd much prefer a Filmation mini sub in 2014 first.

    I want any subscriptions to be new characters. If they made this, I would get it out of completist mentality, but I'd prefer about a hundred other characters first.

    Not a fans of variants of the same characters with slightly different details.

    I'd take even the lamest of new characters over these type of variants.

    Sure. Anything is possible. Except the resurrection of the 200X style. That's been retired.

    I agree that variants could quickly drain interest. I suppose I would be a sucker for these "re-paints" if they were different characters. Like Tufos instead of "People Disquise Armor Stratos" or something silly like that.

    Nah. I'd get a Filmation sub if there was the promise of more She-Ra characters, but that's it.

    Mmm, a sub of all variants isn't so much what I'd like to see now. I think it might go over well for collectors new to the line, maybe.

    But I know I'd enjoy more a sub feature new characters from the minicomics. Lodar, Prince Dakon, Rana, Garn, King Hiss's slave girl, Haramesh, the Masks of Power Demons--all of those would be cooler to get IMO.

    While neat, this is something that should be saved for like 2018. I liked a lot of the Toys'R'Us repaints, but they ultimately don't really serve much of a purpose. We already have these characters. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'd rather have the obscure NA figures first (like Kayo) than these mini-comic repaints.

    I tend to agree. This is a pretty low priority to me unless some alternate venue like the TRU mutli-packs comes about.

    Only the ones that COULD be used as "new" characters. The rest? Maybe as a non-sub item.
    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'd prefer to see Filmation Hordak first to any variant from the mini comics before him. I wouldn't sub, because I don't care about the MC characters....but if it was comic non variants, I still wouldn't sub, but I could get behind it.

    But I do consider the last 2 Vintage Skeletor / He-Man variants and Filmation Hordak, much more essential than MC variants.
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    I would sub to mini comic color variants with new mini comics. Sounds like a great idea.

    I'd buy this sub as I do them all.

    It would be cool if at least half the assortment were new characters though.
