    What figures would you buy again if they were simply re-packaged?

    As a MOC collector, I love the way all the MOTUC (and vintage stuff) look in my hobby room, with the packaging adding to that toy store feel.

    That said, MOTUC has made some terrific figures that I always wished had been packaged in the standard, monthly blister card. For example, I would actually spend money to buy these figures with ZERO new parts, just put in standard MOTUC packaging...

    Prince Adam
    Orko
    Cringer
    Queen Marlena
    Kronis (though I do have a nice custom on the way in the mail!)
    Stratos from the TRU 2-packs
    BA Faker
    MerMan with cardback head
    Whiplash/Stinkor/Fisto with 200X heads

    Any other MOC collectors wish some guys were available like this? I know it's silly to want to buy the same figures just rearranged in the package but I'd do it regardless. :P

    I'd for sure buy BA Faker - I am an opener but I could never find him at TRU and the secondary market was waaaaay out of control. I might buy Orko as well...

    Prince Adam for sure as he is the only character released thus far without any packaging whatsoever (stupid, stupid idea).

    I would definitely look into re-buying other charaters if there was a subtle change, such as paint deco or added accessory (as in the case of Stratos) or Mer-Man released with a Filmation styled head.

    I should have listed BA Faker #1 or maybe #2 behind Prince Adam.

    I finally got one for the collection, paid $100 for one MIP last weekend at a toy show in St. Louis. But that's not nearly as cool as having one in a standard monthly package would be.

    I wonder if Mattel would ever do that when their agreement with TRU ran out? Surely, that deal is long dead and they could make money without making anything new other than his namecard in the package.

    None. I do wish they had used the red 80s explosion design though on the classics packaging, I loved that look.

    ^This.

    I'm sort of glad they didn't go "full vintage" on the packaging though. Then I would be a lot more compelled to have a MOC collection as well.

    I would buy:

    Blue Merman without Aquaman (from the VS two pack)
    Prince Adam

    I definitely would like the red lava burst from the vintage 80s toy line. Hunter Knight, could probably whip up some of these types of cardbacks!

    Hmmm...using that red-burst might be a good way to repackage the MOTUC with limited accessories for a retail line.

    I actually really like the new packaging, the figures are an 80's nod enough for me, then the new packaging makes them feel more unified, since only the MOTU figure came with the explosions, and not any other line, this way every figure feels more like it belongs to a new line, but still together as a unified MOTU universe, I'm glad they did use new packaging.

    And as far as figures....I don't have much of a MOSC anymore, but I am rebuilding a bit, so since I would have them loose already with no need to open them....

    TRU Stratos
    TRU Zodac
    Adam
    (regular color) Orko, I have the SDCC, but prefer the original colors, but don't want to buy a whole Adam & Orko, or now all of the "gift set"....
    TRU Faker (even though I have my own "Ultimate BA Faker" custom I prefer more, being MOSC....I would still buy it)
    Starla (I do not like the other 2 Star Sisters at all)
    Snake Men in various colors
    Palace Guards (I would only want one, but with better heads than we got....I do not want Scott looking at me from my shelf)

    Anyone with software like GIMP and Photoshop and the ability to use them could do it themselves, and someone already whipped some up for those loose cases being sold....if they are still being sold....but anyone could attempt it, no need to be a customizer to do it. Maybe if I can find the art, I may attempt it, but I still haven't gotten back to any new ads yet, haven't had time to work on them, but I do have new cutouts ready since I opened my figures.

    None. I even opened my Bronze King Grayskull that I bought a few months ago. I play with my toys. I would just throw any new packaging away.

    IMO, the red-burst would be a good way to sell more in general.

    Prince Adam, Queen Marlena, Kronis, BA Faker, and Blue Mer-Man.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Thank you so much!
    This is an old photo of my Kronis. It was incomplete.
    Now it's sportin' the black Optikk weapons and in the box there are also the Trap Jaw weapons, the black Roboto weapons, the Trap Jaw head, two mechanical Trap Jaw arms and the blue Man-At-Arms cannon. I'll open a thread for this deluxe version of Kronis!

    I've been crying for He-Man/Battle Cat and Skeletor/Panthor 2 packs/gift packs/whatever you wanna call em for years now!!

    I remember them back in the day and I bought the commemorative ones when I worked at Toys R Us in late 1999, early 2000.



    It's stupid for them not to stick these in new packaging. They have the figures made, just make the packaging. Have Rudy Obrero do some art for it or something. Not that hard. I would eat that **** up!!!

    Probably none. I open everything and toss the packaging, so it doesn't really matter to me.
