    Speculation: Who would want a Horde 6 figure sub for 2015?

    THe thread about the Dylamug trademark got me thinking: he'd be a great lure for a Horde sub in 2015, if an add-on sub is even possible. The Horde is a faction that sells well, and a six figure sub with an exclusive like we saw this year with POP could help wrap up the Horde and get us a few figures we otherwise might not get. Muggy and maybe Dragstor would be great incentives for the sub, and they could easily do Sunder with only a few new parts, getting a popular Filmation character out there, as well. If Hunga or Vultak are in the works, they could fit in here, as well. And if the price for tooling gets to high on a figure or two, we do have the precedent for that this year with Spinerella.

    I know there have been rumors of a 200x sub, and, while I wouldn't object to that, I think a Horde sub would have more support and a better chance of making it through.

    No thanks.

    I'd much rather have the rumored line-up of the 200X mini sub.

    I think the last mini sub, if they do it, should focus equally on Horde, 200x and NA, with 2 figures per line, with the sub exclusive being the most universally fan desired figure possible of the three lines. Dylamug would be a great candidate. Or it could be a random assortment of guys from all areas.

    I'd be pretty upset with Mattel if they focused only on 200x or Horde. And with the waning interest by fans and seemingly from reviewers as well, I'm not betting on a 2016 going through, so I think that this last mini sub (which also may not go through) should focus on a spread of fan demanded characters. Since NA has been given the shaft in terms of numbers and quality (Skeletor's techno shirt) I feel that fans of the series at least deserve another 1-2 figures to flesh out the heroes and mutants. Staghorn would be an amazing figure to have, and he would add some much needed variety to the aesthetics of the mutants. Meanwhile the Horde is already impressive as all get out. I understand the business side of the decision from Mattel's point of view (NA figures don't tend to sell as well as others), but I'm just speaking as a fan.

    While I do believe a 200x sub is what we will see, I would much prefer a Horde sub. Gimme:

    1. Vultak
    2. General Sunder (with Trooper parts)
    3. Colonel Blast
    4. Catra Variant (to match the NA She-Ra slot) OR Admiral Scurvy
    5. Horde Wraith
    6. Callix

    Incentive figure: Dylamug (the Spinnerella slot, so make the sign-up fee 30 bucks)

    If the line-up looked something like this... I'd be in:

    Dylamug
    Vultak
    Hunga The Harpy
    Horde Mummy
    Calix
    Classic Toy Catra (with swappable Horde emblem somewhere... either as part of the bodice design or as simple as a female arm band)
    Despara (Sub Exclusive)



    You'd have to put Dragstor in regular Club Eternia, where he belongs!
    Next Ten Most Wanted: Classic Toy Costume Catra, Quakke, Sagitar, Negator, Granita, Bould-Or, Lady Slither, Bubblor, Major Header, Queen Elmora (She-Demon Of Phantos)

    I'd be all over that. I'm just not feeling a 200x sub for some reason. Don't get me wrong though, whatever they put out there I'm sure I'll end up buying it.

    If characters like Gore-Tusk and the Horde Mummy could ever see the light of day in such a sub, I'd be all for it !

    I'd definitely be in if it had:

    Horde Mummy
    Horde Wraith
    Dylamug
    and Evil Robot

    Any combination of Colonel Blast, General Sunder, Hunga the Harpy, Vultak, Inspector Darkney, Admiral Scurvy, Calix, False Face, Prince Zed, etc. would be acceptable and gravy.

    I wonder how likely a Horde mini-sub would be to get a Mantisaur in the line.

    Before I opened the thread, I imagined a Horde TROOPER sub, with 6 variant HTs! That would interest me. The dregs of the horde? Less so. All in all, I'd rather have a 200X mini-sub.
    TRANSPARENCY!
    Top want list: Green Goddess 2.0, Snake Mountain Man, Mask of Power Demons, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Mini-Comics Beast-Man, 200X Beast-Man, Skeleton Warriors, Rah-Jar, Great Black Wizard.

    3 Club Eternia Subs, 3 Club 200X Subs, no Collectors' Choice subs yet.

    Yes I would but not for Filmation Horde Members. I'd like:

    1) Callix
    2) Horde Mummy
    3) Horde Wraith
    4) Aqua Horde Trooper
    5) Toy Color Catra
    6) Dragstor sub exclusive

    Now I know that Dragstor as the sub exclusive would be unpopular but a necessary evil to sell the sub. Also include with Dragstor some extra Horde Armbands so that collectors can make Horde Members of any MOTUC figures they wish.

    Me too. Will not be subbing to any 200x sub, I'd only sub for something like this, or an NA sub (not that NA would be my preference, but I would support it as they supported the PoP sub).

    Yeah its a no-brainer for me, I'm totally in

    there are still lots of amazing horde characters that deserve to be made in plastic, one of them is dylamug but vultak would be cool too

    On the other hand there also lots of 200x to chose from , one thing is true: 2015 is not enough! we need 2016 to happen! no question about it

    I would be up for a Horde sub if it included:

    1) Calix
    2) Concept Horde Mummy
    3) Horde Wraith
    4) General Sunder
    5) Dylamug
    6) Horde Trooper (single carded re-release for troop building)

    The sub exclusive could be Buzzsaw Hordak

    Dragstor should be included in the 2015 Club Eternia line, so that is why I didn't list him.

    If it were a choice between only the Horde and 200X, I'd definitely go with the Horde- having said that, I want NA characters no matter what, so if they make it in anywhere, I'd be happy!

    I like that idea a lot, and there's more than one way to use them. Some clever member here took one of the bands and stuck it on Catra's thigh like a garter, and I've used both of the bands I've gotten like that on the female Horde members. Mattel should like the idea as it lets them re-use existing tooling.
