Either the slime pit or a proper Horde Fright Zone.
The Fright Zone
The Crystal Castle
The Towers of Eternia
Castle Bright Moon
Other (please specify)
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.

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

MOTUC Eternia Playset for me ! The holy Grail of them all !
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.
Fright Zone, but a better one than we had in vintage days....
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!
The Slime Pit

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 should have put a Slime Pit option it seems!
The Fright Zone based on the Filmation show with a build in Slime Pit.
After that Eternos Palace.
Fright Zone like this one:
A filmation inspired fright zone! The vintage playset was ridiculous just a rock with a tree on top lol
The Towers!!! That'd be so cool!
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, and for the love of Grayskull, ODIPHUS!!!
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.
