    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.

    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

    I would have to go with the Fright Zone (Especially since I had it once upon a time) but Eternos Palace would be nice as well. I'd also love to see the slime pit an all time favorite of mine.

    Point Dread and Talon Fighter to follow Snake Mountain.

    Then Fright Zone, and then the Slime Pit.

    Fright Zone. But a proper dread-inducing techno nightmare as presented in the Filmation cartoon, and not the hidey-hole in the swamp we actually got.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    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.

    I like this idea. A lot of people (myself) included don't have a lot of space. This would help!

    Fright Zone WITH Slime Pit sculpted in!

    EDIT: Sorry, The Horrorist, didn't see your post. I would prefer Mattel's Fright Zone though.

    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.
