I want the immediate characters in the front.
He-man, Teela, Man-At-Arms, Orko, Sorceress and if there's room, She-Ra as well.
Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, Beast man, Mer-Man, Trap-Jaw or Tri-Klops.
By the Power... and For the Honor of GRAYSKULL!!!
HE-MAN and SHE-RA Rules!!!

Hoping He-Man on Battle Cat and She-Ra on Swiftwind only count as one figure each!
He-Man(riding Battle Cat)
She-Ra(riding Swift Wind)
It'd also be cool if they had Hordak and Hsss on some kind of outcropping with their respective armies behind them in silhouette.
Here are mine:
And maybe add Draego-Man vs. Stratos in the air, and have Stratos getting burned to a crisp
He-Man & Battle Cat
Buzz-Off or Sorceress
Nobody outside the 12 back for me. MAYBE she-ra on there somewhere.... MAYBE....
PERSONALLY I like MOTU to be a BIT dark (not CRAZY dark and gritty...) and ESPECIALLY the art to Castle Grayskull. That original 'Fortress of power and mystery' image was what got me hooked on MOTU at 5 years old... and HONESTLY... Seeing a lady in white on a rainbow pegasus MAY have cheapened the dark, mysterious art there...
Personally... I'd like it to similar to the original. I love that the 'good guys' seemed to be behind the 8ball there. The bad guys ALREADY GOT the door open and they had to stop them before it was too late! SOOO dramatic.
HENCE the reason I don't want Sorceress there. Having the castle already manned and the bad guys trying to get past the impenatrable fortress is anti-climactic.
Given the choice, I'd like the bad guys to outnumber the good guys too... Even numbers when He-man could school 5 of them alone is kinda blah...
But going by 5/5 rule... I'd go.
Teela or She-ra
Webstor (I just loved the old hook climbing the castle wall picture)
He-BroLot's of figures for sale on eBay now and some start at $1.
Prices dropped for the holidays - Buy a Pookie or a Castle trap door in my My Shapeways Store - also some cool custom accessories like the Diamond Ray of disappearance, TrapJaw's Attachments, Coridite Crystals, Horn of Evil, Tytus Hammer, etc...
I guess itīs in the MOTUC timeline so Sorceress is dead, Snake Man at Arms is out of the picture so iīm choosing the most important and some wild cards:
Stratos(maybe we see a hint how he died?)
Draego-Man(maybe fighting Stratos... hinthint)
"Yep! And now I'm gonna blast ya!"
- Orko to Skeletor in "Lessons"
I SINCERELY hope that the castle has NOTHING to do with the MOTUC timeline.
I want the castle artwork to be MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. Perfect for every line that ever came before and/or After.
BESIDES, the Castle was there in the BEGINNING of the story, so they CERTAINLY don't have to tie it in to the END of the story...
Snake mountain? Three Towers? Fright Zone?? SURE... Play with those all you want. Throw in Draego man or Spector. She-ra and Extendar... All encompasing and all that...
Castle Grayskull?? the holy Grail of the MOTU mythos?? Let's keep this basic
I'm such a vintage purist but I think it would be refreshing to see Rudy tackle some new characters...

In order of preference:
1. He-Man (riding Battle Cat at the mouth threshold to stop intruders)
2. Sorceress (in the window or on the big turret, with open wings and performing some magic to defend the castle)
3. Man-at-Arms (shooting the laser gun on the small turret)
4. Teela (appearing from around the castle riding a Sky Sled)
5. Stratos (flying over the scene, dropping something on Mer-Man)
6. Ram Man (ramming Beast Man's beast)
1. Skeletor (riding helmetless Panthor and trying to get into the castle, but encountering He-Man on the way)
2. Evil-Lyn (performing some magic against the Sorceress)
3. Beast Man (ordering some beast[s] to attack the castle)
4. Trap Jaw (shooting up at Man-at-Arms)
5. Tri-Klops (trying to see through the castle's wall using his X-ray vision)
6. Mer-Man (emerging from some nearby river or waterbody)

visit my albums:
awesome trades with: harold, krosfyah, bobtheodd, Agostinho, boggs32, sallah, beastor
Visit my facebook page 2917 likes already!!!!! XD
On the other hand maybe iīm wrong. I looked at the Wind Raider box art and thatīs very vintage. So maybe there is hope.
I'd just prefer a cassicized version of the original with a few more characters.
And now, I'll bring the "hate". I really don't want to see snakemen, horde, POP, great rebellion, New Adventures, preternia, Son of He-Man era stuff on this one. I'm not against any of it; I just don't want it on this particular item.
Not a deal breaker though, of course.
He-Man (hopefully with BattleCat as 'one' choice - jousting with Skeletor)
Teela (fighting Mer-Man)
Man-At-Arms (fighting Trap Jaw)
Stratos (flying, being shot at by Evil-Lyn)
Mekaneck (behind He-Man, peering over the wall with extended neck or maybe using his neck to battering ram somebody!)
Skeletor (hopefully with Panthor as 'one' - jousting with He-Man)
Evil-Lyn - casting spells, shooting at Stratos
Beast-Man (climbing the walls or getting headbutted by Mekaneck)
Trap Jaw (having a 'whose tech is best' battle wit MAA)
Mer-Man (with CARDBACK head!, maybe coming out of the moat, lunging at Teela)
Gotta go traditional with Grayskull, at least 95% so. No offense to She-Ra fans, but I would not want to see her (and ESPECIALLY not Swiftwind) on the Grayskull box. MOTU is a darker mythos to me, while PoP is the brighter aspect of that. I'm all for PoP getting more toys for the fans but I do not want them blended into the Grayskull box art.
THE VINTAGE-TO-CLASSICS COUNTDOWN - 9 TO GO
HEROIC WARRIORS - Flying Fists He-Man - Lazer Light He-Man - ROTAR!
EVIL WARRIORS - Lazer Light Skeletor - Saurod - Terror Claws Skeletor - TWISTOID!
HORDE - Buzzsaw Hordak - Dragstor
Ill say one thing if there is a vote for the 5 villains and 5 heroes, I don't want to see anyone who is not part of the originals.
Ill give up zodac for trap jaw because zodac is considered good sometimes
Ram man or mef
I hope all you guys vote for the originals just like the 80s castle box
- - - Updated - - -
And I like the zoar idea instead of sorceress
LOOKING for these MOTU Full Cardbacks:
-Skeletor w/"original" promo on front
-Man E Faces w/ "extra weapons" promo on front
-Trap Jaw w/o Ring Promo on front & newer figures pictured on back
-Tri Klops w/o Ring Promo on front & newer figures pictured on back
& Mantisaur Empty Box (USA) Version
This is not personally directed to you Wulff, just in general. I really don't like the "no girls allowed" attitude that the fan boys have.
"Don't crowd me boys!"
I would want Sorceress for sure, any of the other good guys are great and bad guys too, but definately the Sorceress
COMPLETE THE COLLECTION !
MY Feedback Thread : http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=191572
I hope we get to see a bit of variety in the box art instead of going purely 8/12-back.
He-Man on Battle Cat
Zoar flying over the castle or Sorceress peering from a window.
Skeletor on Panthor
Proud supporter of the Snake Men.
Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard, Darius, the rest of New Adventures.
Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.
No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!
A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!
He-man on battle cat
For me absolutely no pop, as Sun devil said the greyskull box art should have a darker under current, also please no Orko, the original box art was painted way before Orko was around and again
Tonally the new one should reflect this.
Just my 2cents,
Teela and Evil Lyn? Which version do they use? We've got too many versions floating around right now, and it's gonna be hard to please EVERYONE... Stratos?? He has one 'main' version. Same with Ram Man and Mekaneck. I'd be very sad for something as awesome as this dragged down into the obvious blonde/yellow skin debates
While Teela and Evil Lyn are 'a-list' without a doubt... I also like seeing OTHER people get the spotlight a bit more. I don't want C,D and Z list characters getting 'the cover'.... There are a few A and B list characters... who really never get the love that He-man/Teela/Man-at-arms get.
They've beeen there since the beginning (or near enough) and certainly have earned a place on the Castle's box
