    Why would you people want to water down CGM by making a Snake Mountain Man or Fright Zone Man??.....Not a smart idea....

    I don't want a Light Hope action figure.

    He should be a diorama or accessory piece of some sort. Mattel needs to think out-of-the-box on that one.

    I Agree. Castle Grayskulman is an original idea. The others would be just a copy. I personally don't like them

    However, if they do start this I think a Slimepit man would look the best, with that monster skull as a head and those red top parts as shoulder pads. His hands could be claws like the one at the bottom of the pit.
    I agree. It's a neat idea but is just too derivative.

    though i ended up loving the figure and i am not commenting on the winner i felt the entire idea of the figure was just an uninspired design though clever idea. since nothing new was designed it wasnt really a new design and there is nothing to detract from extrapolating the snakemountain man.

    there isnt anything original to detract from, and actually the idea begs or even demands the implied other(s)

    edit
    one consession id make is that any playset man would not need dignified with a bio. keep the in cannon story and existance of any possible figure just a toy.

    Grayskullman was not THAT original....seeing as Boskoes made one several years before the contest. http://ragingnerdgasm.blogspot.com/2...012-panel.html

    Well, if the dinosaurs on Eternia weren't so tasty, the Heroic Warriors could afford to drive around in gas-guzzling horsepower monsters like the Evil Warriors do!

    There is some indication that Preternia Disguise He-Man was actually Fred Flintsone. Note that you never see the two in the same room at the same time:

    Love Snake Mountain Man, just fell in love with Fright Zone Man.

    I don't really follow the logic that it would somehow "take away" from Castle Grayskullman or his creator. I think they compliment this character, if anything, he would be like their "uncle".

    I would also love some MORE Horde Troopers, like the gods of Eternia intended. (build an army, remember?)

    I good Brand Manager would be getting us excited for the future, not scaring use with a "winding down" of the line.
