    At the She-Ra panel today, Eric Scot Frydler said that "Mattel" said that Josh was going to be a figure. By "Mattel," I wonder if he meant Toyguru?

    I don't think Eric Scot Frydler was joking, but I suppose it's possible that Toyguru was, if that's who told him the figure was coming.

    More reveals in July, then more Toyguru blogs until sub emails hold us over into Toy Fair 2013.

    Then 2014 will be revealed at SDCC (including the best SDCC figure to date) Sub sales will do very well due to A-Lister presence, but it may carry over into 2015 with solid leftover B-characters. 2015 and 2016 will be very shaky once 2014 runs the well dry.

    The original roadmap should have been followed. Everyone would have been placated.

    July: Agree with Clamp Champ
    August: Probably Glimmer or Castaspella
    September: Shokoti
    October:Prahvus
    November:Lord Dactys
    December: It's a 3 way guess, Two-bad, Mantenna or Rio-Blast

    SDCC exclusive: Madame Razz/Broom, Kowl, Lookee
    Traveling Exclusive: Filmation Hordak w/Imp
    Remaining quarter figures: NA Skeletor, and Horde Trooper 2 pack
    Out of Sub: Zodak Chair, Battle Ram, Skeletor's Robot Nights 2 pack

    Then what we will see at next years SDCC??? That's really far off but...
    Sub exclusive: King Miro
    January: Scorpia
    Feb: Squeeeze
    March: (which ever of Glimmer or Castaspella didn't come out in previous year)
    April: Evil Seed
    May: Hydron
    June:Angella
    Julywhich ever they didn't do in the previous December) so either Rio-blast, Two-bad, or Mantenna
    SDCC exclusive Light Hope

    after that I'm dumbfounded and honestly would have a pretty complete collection. I'd love Modulock, multi-bot, and Tung-lashor, Lizardman, Malaktha, and Sea Hawk, and Kothos though. Also a few more POP ladies would be nice. Peekablue, Mermista, and Entrapta, maybe Perfuma as a goof ...I'd take it. lol

    Sorry! I was taking Frydler at his word.

    For what it's worth, he also claims to have invented Quidditch in "Eye of the Storm." I just dug out my copy of that comic and have come to the conclusion that maybe it's best not to believe too much of what he said.

    Is everyone forgetting the Castle Grayskull B-Sheet at NYCC next month? Then the prototype (if enough orders happen) at NY Toy Fair in February? Those, to me, are big time!

    Possibly the lamest character ever! Dude at a picnic, I mean the Scientists, Songster, Plundor, Twiggits, Crackers are all legendary compared to Josh and I have zero interest in any of those also.

    I must say (and this is no offence to anyone), I think a Josh or Songster figure would split the community like no other reveal EVER...

    As for future reveals, I hope Mattel look to the overwhelmingly well received characters at PowerCon for their future reveal strategy. Snake Face was a given and was a popular reveal, but Octavia - a high-profile Filmation character - and Karatti - a lesser-known character - were both hugely applauded by fans. I'd love for this to shape future quarters because it makes it much more exciting and unpredictable...

    Imagine if the next three were Clamp Champ, Batros and Peekablue? Or Clamp Champ, Castaspella and Calix? Clamp Champ, Sea Hawk and Crita?

    Either way, we know we're getting Clamp Champ. I just hope the rest of the reveals for 2013 match up to some brilliantly unexpected and diverse selections (the aforementioned, plus Netossa and Fang Man, IMO).

    Yeah, but it's only one month's figure, so who really gives a snapple ice tea? Am I wrong? Granted, I hate to waste a spot on a dud figure that no one really wants, but this line has yet to deliver that for me, so my faith is on the idea that even a Josh or Songster would kick ass when rendered by the Horsemen.
    Harken to the coming of RIO BLAST!!

    .
    ...And I must say to retort, if we get either of these before Mantenna, Glimmer or Two-Bad I will officially quit the line, end of story. And no matter of outpouring from friends, fellow fans, or people at Mattel saying their jobs are on the line is going to make me think differently. I want the full option to not buy either of these z list figures.

    Settle down folks we are not getting a Josh figure anytime soon. Eric had mentioned his intent for him during the mini comics panel on day one as being a friend of Bow and a regular character (being to Bow what Robin is to Batman --- not that Bow is anything like Batman). It seems he had a whole background developed including powers we never saw and Eric supposedly talked with Scott about this in the event that he ever does become a figure in the distant future ... Which I would be thrilled about. The rebellion needs more males which was Eric's intent all along despite roadblocks from management (hmm sound familiar?). His proclamation on day 2 I think was a product of him not being familiar with the new line and how it works.
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    July: Clamp Champ
    SDCC: Modulok
    August: Glimmer
    September:Hydron
    October: Scorpia, Horde Troopers
    November: Geldor
    December: Squeeze, NA Skeletor

    With King He-Man being the sub exclusive, I don't think we'd get a He-variant in that last slot, so I'm guessing NA Skeletor. One thing is for sure, we still have plenty of characters to get through!

    Well, based on the hints I've seen around the board, I'm thinking

    July: Clamp Champ
    August: Calyx
    September:Two Badd
    October: Rio Blast
    November: Geldor
    December: Squeeeze

    The above placement, month-wise, is pretty arbitrary, but I feel the choices themselves are pretty strong.

    Horde Trooper 2 pack as the $50 item, I hope Modulok as SDCC (I seem to remember Bcrduke hinting him as an SDCC item like two years ago), and let's go with, oh, NA Skeletor as the remaining $25 slot.

    July Clamp Champ
    SDCC Madame Razz, Broom, Kowl, maybe Imp
    August Ninjor
    September Glimmer
    October Rio Blast
    November Geldor
    December Mantenna

    I would figure Hydron would be in the mix in place of one.....
