    Future Playset

    So, assuming Snake Mountain to be the next playset after Grayskull, what playset would fans like to see after it?

    Either the slime pit or a proper Horde Fright Zone.

    I should have voted Other so I could vote Slime Pit.

    But realistically, I'd think based on Grayskull specs alone, they could do a combo of both, since the were both Horde Presence on Eternia.

    BUt Fright Zone.


    Though you really could build the Slime PIt into it. I dont know.

    In a perfect world (or a movie year!) Mattel would cover all bases, but in reality, i'd have to side with Hordak and say Fright Zone for me too.

    The Crystal Castle.

    Followed closely by the Fright Zone.

    Then the Towers of Eternia.

    Eternos Palace is the most important playset that hasn't been released in any form yet. It was the most common location by far in the Filmation series, the home of all the main heroic characters and the starting point of most plots, and contains such iconic settings as the Royal Throne Hall, Man-at-Arm's laboratory, and Orko's bedroom.

    Also, if Mattel Design were smart enough, they could make it happen with a relatively constrained budget, since in its most iconic Filmation incarnation, the symmetrical circular geometry readily lends itself to modularization (unlike highly asymmetrical Castle Grayskull). That is, they would only need to mold a quadrant (or even just an octant) of the structure and sell it as a build-a-palace kit for, say, $100. Those with limited display space could do with just one quadrant of the palace (e.g., to place in a corner), and those with more space and/or budget could buy multiples of it to interconnect into a half or a full palace. Then, the interior props (such as the royal thrones and Orko's bed) should be sold as separate diorama add-ons (just like Grayskull's weapons rack), so as to market them both to people with enough space to buy the playset and place them inside it, and to people with more limited displays with room only for dioramas of specific locations (such the throne hall).

    I want the Slime Pit. It wouldn't be expensive, allows for some nice sculpting, and isn't too large. Include a translucent green slime pit He-Man and you have a real winner on your hands.

    I agree, the Slime Pit was by far more popular than the Fright Zone with kids an fans. So I would much rather that be made THEN after that make the Fright Zone or any other they wanted to make

    The Fright Zone...Hordak needs a place to put his stuff.

    The Towers!!! That'd be so cool!
    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

    Honestly, I'd prefer some of the mini playsets first. Point Dread, then the Slime Pit, maybe the vintage Fright Zone (I'd love to have the Filmation version as well, but that's not very realistic; in order to have it fit just one action figure inside, the base would be over three feet in diameter!).

    For the next large one, I think I'd want to see the Crystal Castle: Filmation design with some of the interior details from the original playset. The Eternia Towers might seem unlikely because of the size, but if released individually, I think they could be affordable.

    -Fright Zone
    Filmation of course. Evildustrial facade in front, throne room with high stepped altar, computers, large veiw screens, large tenacle monster in back.
    Also with large playmat depicting toxic fluids and iron grating.

    -Eternos Palace
    Large pink half dome with throne room inside. His and hers thrones and awesome Kirbyesque deco. Long "concrete" wall that extends off one side of
    the dome depicting the courtyard featuring rectangular stone benches, a fountain, exotic foliage and more.

    -Mystic Mountains
    ...or "Zodak's Sanctuary". Faux mountain top with a large one-roomed tower. Half-octogon with windows and detailed wood grain. Accessories include the Mystic Weapons Rack with a half dozen ultimate weapons, and the Enforcer's Chair. A guy can dream.

    -Whispering Woods
    Modular playset that makes an even bigger forest by buying multiple. Throw in some catapults, picnic tables, some Twiggets etc. This playset can also be used as an Eternian Forest.

    -Crystal Castle
    ...with Light Hope and whatever else should go in there. Wasn't there a bed in there or something?

    I'd love a Brightmoon Palace and an Eternos Palace. These never made it back in the 1980s, I think they would be great in toyform!

    As for the Fright Zone, I'd much prefer a Filmation one: I find it scarier than the actual playset from the vintage MOTU...
    20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon

    The Filmation Fright Zone was so scary looking, the toy version was just silly.

    I'd like to see the Crystal Castle, with it predominately Filmation and some toy details mixed within.

    Filmation Fright Zone is a dream, otherwise I'd have given that priority.

    Eternos Palace....

    He-Man, Orko, Prince Adam, Man-At-Arms & Sorceress have Grayskull possibly coming....
    Skeletor, Beast Man, Evil-Lyn, Trap Jaw & a the other Skeletor baddies would have Snake Mt.

    Randor & the royal Family need their place too....the Palace could display all of the heroic Warriors, as all of them have been there at least once....but I would love to see it in Filmation style.

    Grayskull is cool, but not all the heroic guys have been there, or go there often.
    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 always thought there were two fright zones one on eternia another on etheria. eternia was the swamp caves and etheria was the technological monstrosity

    goes with my idea for combining the canons- myp hordak is horde prime from filmation when grayskull destroyed his body he became an astral form and it was him that gave the bargain to keldor to make him skeletor by taking a demon from the astral plain and merging them

    filmation hordak is the hordak who stole adora and got trapped in etheria he is the old teacher of skeletor and after seeing horde prime get disintegrated focused on technology to make sure he is more powerful than anyone
