    2) Mantenna is in the original style guide and vintage artwork displayed with a white crossbow, yet as a kid i remember it being dark grey????? with my figure.
    3) Scott has answered questions on Mattycollector.com forums stating that when they get to Mantenna he'd have 4 separate legs and not 2. Usually, when a figure hasn't even been looked at he will say something along the lines of "Cool idea but nothing to announce right now", or "That is something we haven't spoken about yet". So THAT says to me says that Mantenna is in production already as Scott has said Mantenna will have 4 separate legs.
    4) If all I've guessed is correct, then it'd be the perfect cross sell - the same crossbow in different colours to swap between figs.....if you purchase Mantenna then you can give the white crossbow to hordak, and take hordak's dark crossbow and give it to Mantenna, to match the vontage toys.
    5) The explanation for the white crossbow not having a unique head sculpt fits this logic....especially if Mantenna is a fully tooled new figure and needs the $$$$$$$ to cover his unique legs sculpting. The money that would go into a new crossbow head has gone into the legs, so it makes sense to give Mantenna a cheaper repaint crossbow - and the justification to NOT change the head of the crossbow IS the corssover you can make with Hordak.

    So there you have it....OR....I could be totally wrong and talking outta my butt:-) You decide!!!!!!
    I'm with you!

    It was cool. I actually missed the Matty Panel because I am in rehearsal for a new show that opens Friday, and I had rehearsal on Saturday... I got to leave early but not early enough. It was great seeing that Grayskull blueprint up close though. It's going to be an AMAZING playset.

    Netossa looks AWESOME in finished product mode lol. REALLY nice. Ram Man does too. Fang Man and Jitsu are great, and they were placed on a three part stand, which looked like an Olympic medal winner dais, the last 2 hours of the con on Sunday.

    Not sure if anyone has pics of that.

    See, I think it could be an extra item they've put in with the Horde Troopers - if that's the $50 slot.

    I'm sorry, but how exactly could Buzzsaw Hordak's chest be used for Rio Blast? They would have to be two completely different sculpts. The actual torso would have to be completely sculpted to look like Rio Blast (the cowboy look) and they would have to work the opening chest into the sculpt. They could do this, since it's not an action feature, per se. It's an articulation point.

    They could do the same for Buzzsaw Hordak, if they make him. But I don't see how the two chests are interchangeable. Hordak has a giant Horde symbol on his chest, and Rio Blast is wearing some kind of vest with the flap peeling back, and a sheriff's badge on it.

    The only way it could work is if the part of the armor that attaches to the flap is a removable piece that slides in. So you could have the "chest opening" buck that has an extra piece that slides on the front for the different armors/clothes these guys use. That being said, I imagine if either one of these guys is done in a way to show this feature it might be more like they are doing SnakeFace with interchangeable parts that go on top of the current buck.

    In any case, I can't say I ever saw the appeal of Buzz-saw Hordak visually once you lose the action feature.

    I would have guessed the white crossbow would go with a Filmation Hordak, but we are not getting another variant this year.

    Yes
    I got shots of it on the org Facebook page as I shared the folder with them, please clip the pics and add them here (I've reached capacity)

    I'm thinking it's the piece of Castle Grayskull that separate to allow the handle to attach????

    If I remember correctly each crossbow had a different sculpt for each character. The white one that was featured I think is the same as Hordak's. The vintage Mantenna had a uniquely different one. As for Dragstor I can't remember.

    Well....

    I don't think the white cross-bow is Mantenna's.... I'm going with the Troopers.

    What about Filmation Hordak? Since Hordak didn't get his white crossbow when released in MOTUC, I thought that it would come with a Hordak variant...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon

    It looks like we're only getting one variant next year, and that's New Adventures He-Man. Unless they make Hordak the SDCC exclusive, I don't think we'll see him in 2013.

    I would just assume that you would have snap on pieces kind of like Snake face has, pieces that clip onto the arms, chest & legs for Rio....and Buzzsaw would have 2 armors....or something, and just have saw blades hand held....

    To be honest, I don't see the need for Buzzsaw Hordak, just make an armor and package it with a Filmation Hordak, or the next Hordesmen to come out, and have the armor be able to be used with the original Classics Hordak, but give him the Buzzsaw effect & buzzsaws. After all the closed armor is exactly the same as the original Hordak, I see no need for a second Identical Hordak figure with a new armor, unless it actually contains an action feature. At least for BA He-Man he got the flat ab piece and his body was painted silver, the BS Hordak would be identical to the original, other than a new armor, and saw blades.
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor

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

    There are also going to be items outside the sub next year. He could be one of those.
    8 figures I still need: 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Filmation Tung Lashor, 6/Saurod, 5/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 4/Peekablue, 3/Hunga the Harpy, 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    I'm hoping the SDCC exclusive is a set of figures not just one. It would be good to knock out some extra characters with the bigger budget that slot offers.

    I have not noticed any pictures of new stands that Scott has mentioned somewhere... were they only revealed without any pictures or display? Or have I misunderstood something?
