    How would YOU schedule the next 3-4 years?

    With the talk regarding NYTF 2013 reveals, and the potential surprises (beasts, vehicles, multi-packs, add-on subs, etc.), and the overall talk of the line wrapping up (in terms of the core figures)...I tried to come up with a schedule that attempted to hit as many requested figures as possible. I set up 2014-2016 to have the exact same skus as 2013 (12 monthly, 4 quarterly items, and a sub exclusive). I included a 6-figure add-on sub (Filmation), a SDCC item, and a traveling exclusive. This is what I came up with...

    2013
    JAN - Netossa, Ram Man
    FEB - Jitsu
    MAR - Fang Man, King Grayskull
    APR - Snake Face, FFM
    MAY - Karatti, Icer (first add-on figure, after NYTF reveal)
    JUNE - Octavia, Weapons Pak 4 (w/ Rattlor's armor, Strobo's gun, and white Horde crossbow)
    JULY - Clamp Champ, NA He-Man, Seahawk
    AUG - Castaspella, Kothos
    SEPT - King Miro, Evilseed
    OCT - Tuskador, Horde Troopers
    NOV - Geldor, Madame Razz
    DEC - Peekablue, Batros
    Traveling Con Item - Strobo
    SDCC - Stonedar/Granita/Rokkon 3-pack
    30th Anniv. Filmation - Chef Allen

    2014
    JAN - Mantenna, Multi-Bot
    FEB - Glimmer, Scorpia
    MAR – Hydron, Eldor (sub exclusive)
    APR – Rio Blast, Crita/Darius/Mara 3-pack, Strong Arm
    MAY – Sweet Bee
    JUNE - Flogg, Dylamug
    JULY - Ninjor, Starburst She-Ra
    AUG - Angella, Lizard Man
    SEPT - Artilla
    OCT - Squeeze, Masque/Melaktha 2-pack, Vultak
    NOV - Lord Dactys
    DEC - Staghorn, Kittrina
    Traveling Con Item - Goat Man
    SDCC - Blade/Gwildor/Saurod 3-pack

    2015
    JAN – Two-Bad, Modulok
    FEB - Mermista, General Tataran
    MAR – Quakke, Lodar (sub exclusive)
    APR - Extendar, Spinnerella/Flutterina/Perfuma/Kowl multi-pack, Red Knight
    MAY – Blast Attak
    JUNE – Vizar, Hawk(Delora)
    JULY – Tung Lasher, NA Skeletor
    AUG – Double Trouble, Huntara
    SEPT - Lizorr
    OCT - Dragstor, Twistoid/Rotar 2-pack, Uncle Montork/Dree-Elle
    NOV - Entrapta
    DEC – Spinwit, Hunga the Harpy
    Traveling Con Item – Filmation Hordak w/ Imp
    SDCC - Hoove/Kayo/Butthead 3-pack
    30th Anniv. of PoP - Scratchin' Sound Catra/Shower Power Catra/Panther form Catra 3-pack

    2016
    JAN - Calix, Sagitor
    FEB - Garn, Plundor
    MAR - Bruar, Red Beast (sub exclusive)
    APR - Crimson Fury, Battleground Marlena/Captain Randor/Kulatak Elder 3-pack, Melog
    MAY - Songster
    JUN - Queen Zal, Admiral Scurvy
    JULY - Prahvus, Snake Armor He-Man
    AUG - Shezar, Negator
    SEPT - Master Sebrian
    OCT - Veena, Filmation Count Marzo/Chimera 2-pack, General Sunder
    NOV - Nocturna
    DEC - Prince Dakon, Nepthu
    Traveling Con Item - King Hssss' Slave Girl
    SDCC - Flying Fist He-Man/Terror Claws Skeletor/Buzzsaw Hordak 3-pack


    Afterwards, multi-packs like Skeletor's Robot Knights, Skelcons, Avion Rocketeers, Masks of Power Demons, or stuff like beasts, variants, weapons packs, dioramas, vehicles, playsets, etc., all can be offered as non-sub items or additional con exclusives.

    What do you think?

    Your list looks pretty good as is.

    I'd be all in for the next 4 years.

    I think I can comfortably not purchase 2016's list and still be able to go to sleep at night. However I'm 95% down for the rest!

    @ King Tamusk: I don't see the line going this far... still I like your optimism and think that your fictional line-up is pretty cool!

    I just wish we get so many fan demanded characters in 2013 and 2014.

    Don't know who's coming in 2013, but I could imagine the following characters to be released for the rest of the year:
    Filmation Hordak and Imp, Madame Razz and Broom, Hydron, Castaspella, Lord Dactys, NA Skeletor, Horde Troopers (with General Sunder's parts), Sea Hawk.

    As for 2014, I would like or guess they'll have to include some of the following characters (in no particular orders, though I guess they'll have to keep some big shots for the first three months if they want to sell the sub after SDCC 2013 lol):

    Mantenna, Two Badd, Tung Lashor, Squeeeze, Angella, Glimmer, Kowl, Darius, Mara, Scorpia, Lizard Man, Eldor, Miro (sub exclusive?), Flogg, Batros, Icer, Evilseed, Modulok, Rock People 3 pack

    If there's still some life in the line after 2014, they could release the following for 2015:

    Extendar, Vultak, Rio Blast, Blast Attack, Entrapta, Strongarm, Hawk, Lookee, Veena, Sebrian, Crita, Huntara, Dragstor, Hunga, Mermista, Peekablue, Prahvus, Masque & Shokoti 2 pack, Twiggets multipack, Movie 3 pack

    This could be a way to make the next two years pretty strong and at the same time giving fans some of the most wanted characters in 2014 (just in case there is not enough demand for MOTUC beyond 2014).
    20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
    Evil: Evilseed
    POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
    Horde: Vultak / Hunga / Prahvus
    POG: Veena
    SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
    Rock People: Granita
    NA: Darius / Sebrian

    Going by TG's statement for finishing of the essentials in the next 2-3 years as well as a few fan demanded characters.

    I think we'll get a few figures every year OUTSIDE the sub like we did in 2009/2010 - this is where the early access thing will come in for sub holders.

    In 2012 I made my own Road Map that went all the way through 2020. My road map wasn't so much about which specific characters would be in each year but more about what type of line up I would expect to see in terms of character selection in a given 12 month subscription period (brand, factions, source material, etc). The idea for 2013-2016 was to have each year have a pretty even mix where each of those four years you'd see all the factions represented and a good balance of both a and b list characters. For just the 13 regular figure spots (just the 12 regular monthly figures plus the 1 sub exclusive--I dealt with oversize, quarterly and con figures separately) the yearly breakdown/recipe basically went like this:

    1 Heroic Warrior (vintage figure)
    1 Evil Warrior (vintage figure)
    1 Horde member (2 of those years would have gone to the 2 remaining standard vintage figures, 1 would have gone to Entraptra and 1 would have gone to a Filmation Horde character).
    1 Snake Man (after you do the last 3 remaining vintage snake figures this category would go either wild card or would go to characters like the Snake Goddess).
    1 A-list vintage POP character
    1 B-list vintage POP character
    1 Galactic Protector (vintage)
    1 Space Mutant (vintage)
    1 Filmation character from the He-Man cartoon
    1 Filmation character from the She-Ra cartoon
    1 MYP character
    2 Wild Card spots - ideally for mini comic, concept, jetlag or other miscellaneous characters

    I'd set up my formula this way so each year between 2013-2016 would feel somewhat equally strong and diverse. I know a lot of people want all of their favorite faction right away, but honestly if Mattel was to do that this line would be even more likely to die off quickly. In my opinion the best way to keep the line going year after year so that every body can get their favorite factions complete is to try to keep things more balanced so that you never reach a point where you've fully completed one part of the collection (ie vintage Masters) but are still years away from completing a still wanted but typically less demanded faction (ie New Adventures). With this road map I created I felt like character selection would stay really strong all the way through 2016. Come 2017 there would have been a bit of a drop off as far as character selection is concerned since you'd be all out of vintage Horde and Snake Men and the only remaining POP would be a couple of B-listers. But still you'd have enough vintage Masters to either hurry up and wrap up all the Vintage figures in 2017 or to keep spacing them out with more Filmation, NA, mini comic, etc characters all the way through 2019 or 2020.

    It could be coincidence but so far with 8 of the regular monthly figures and the sub exclusive revealed 2013 is matching up exactly with my road map. If it sticks to my prediction then that means we'll see the following for the 4 yet to be revealed 2013 monthly spots:

    1 MYP character
    1 Galactic Protector (NA He-Man doesn't count since he's a quarterly spot)
    1 A-list vintage POP (ie Glimmer, Queen Angella, Castaspella, Mermista)
    1 Horde

    Of course the real test would have been to see if 2014 would have matched up too, but now that subs are down and 2014 has broken off from the original plan to be all heavy hitters that could end up tossing out my entire road map predictions.

    Sure, I'll buy into this, give me:

    1. MYP character - Lord Dactys
    2. Galactic Protector - Don't care
    3. A-List vintage POP - Glimmer
    4. Horde - Modulok

    That would be a great end to 2013 if you ask me.

    What do you think?
    I love that you have Shezar and Queen Zal (yay!!!) and Dakkon and Lodar too, but where's Shokoti? I don't see her anywhere, and she's like the top one-shot Filmation character who should be in 2013 or 2014. Are my eyes failing? Man, if we got Chef Allen and not Shokoti I think the resulting nerd rage would be justifiably nuclear!

    Also, I still hope we'll see Illumina and Sleetah, and that Prahvus and Veena will turn up sooner than 2016.

    Oh you mean a list of who we hope we get?

    Two-Badd
    Mermista
    Scorpia
    Glimmer
    Angella
    Castaspella
    Mantenna
    Modulock
    Horde Trooper
    Stridor
    Battle Ram
    Squeeze
    Tung Lashor
    Veena
    Illumina
    Eldor
    Evil Seed
    Prahvus
    NA Skeletor
    Flogg
    Kritta
    Hydron

    There are others, but I'd be feeling great if we got all of these on my wishlist.
    Don't much care what month they come out, though I'll pick my favorites for my birthday month of August, and those would probably be Two-Badd, Battle Ram, Stridor and Veena.

    has TG stated that oversized figures (beasts--multi-packs) may be gone now too? Thought I had seen that somewhere where we may only get basic figures starting 2014, but not sure..

    TBH, there aren't many beasts left that I care for (personally).
    I'm all set with the Giants.
    The only "beasts" I would like to get would be Molkrum, Sleetah (with Illumina), and Mer-Man's fishy steed. (Battle Lion would be an honorable mention but I'm all set with any more horses)

    I like the list. Better add Shokoti. I agree that 2016 looks a little strange, as I dont recognize many of the names, but that does not mean I would not want those figures, if done well and they have an interesting design.

    I am pretty sure that it's been said the beasts, etc will take a lower priority. So I'm guessing they will not be a part of the new 2014 line up. I for one have lots of beasts, giants, and oversized on my want list still so I hope we find a way to get these back into the mix (although I'm not keeping my hopes up too much). I'm sure somehow they will find a way to put out the $30 oversized guys like Modulok, and maybe one really demanded beast like Stridor, but getting other beasts like Clawdeen, Bianotops, or Battle Lion or huge oversized items like the MYP giants into this line is starting to feel a lot less likely to me. It's a shame as I was really looking forward to those too.

    I always counted Stridor as a vehicle (Much like Spydor)...but yes, if he's considered a beast, put him right behind Molkrum on my list and then Mantisaur right after him

    And i didn't see Loo-Kee or the Twiggets which i would want them and Shokoti over several of the others.

    Yeah, either way im going to be nervous about reveals on Matty Palooza SDCC 2013. I believe were going to get a good 2014 line up, but part of me wonders if 2013 could be it

    I've done this before on a different, similar thread... but here goes again, because it's fun.
    Oh, and to note- my guess is that NYTF is going to reveal outside-the-sub, quarterly TWO-PACKS... which will be Mattel's way to get more Filmation, Jetlag, etc characters as well as fan-demanded variants/repaints.

    2013:
    JAN - Netossa
    Quarterly Slot - Ram Man
    FEB - Jitsu
    MAR - Fang Man
    Sub Exclusive - King He-Man
    Q1 Bonus Two-Pack - Sea Hawk Vs. Admiral Scurvy
    APR - Snake Face
    Quarterly Slot - Fighting Foe Men
    MAY - Karatti
    JUNE - Octavia
    JULY - Clamp Champ
    SDCC Exclusive - Modulok
    Quarterly Slot - NA He-Man
    Q2 Bonus Two-Pack - Mara Vs. Crita
    AUG - Hydron
    SEPT - Flogg
    Q3 Bonus Two-Pack - Lord Masque Vs. Malektha

    NOV - Geldor
    DEC - Kowl
    Q4 Bonus Two-Pack - Sweet Bee & Flutterina
    Quarterly Slot - Horde Troopers Two-Pack
    Traveling Con Item - Strobo
    Weapons Pak 4 (w/ Rattlor's armor, Strobo's gun, Netossa face guard & spear, newly-tooled female weapons for the likes of Frosta, The Star Sisters, etc., repainted Cy-Chop Horde belt, the remaining maroon repaint Man-E-Weapons needed to complete the set, silver She-Ra shield, Snake Men army builder armor & weapons in new colors, a new Filmation artifact such as Diamond Ray Of Disappearance)

    2014:
    JAN - Mantenna
    Quarterly Slot - Two Bad
    FEB - Angella
    Q1 Bonus Two-Pack - Icer & Strongarm
    MAR – Blade
    Sub Exclusive - Eldor & Tri-Solar System Map
    APR – Ninjor
    Q2 Bonus Two-Pack - Teela 3.0 Vs. Evil-Lyn 3.0
    MAY – Blast Attak
    Quarterly Slot - Extendar
    JUNE - Tung Lashor
    JULY - Dragstor
    SDCC Exclusive - Starburst She-Ra Vs. Catra (in classic toy costumes)
    AUG - Castaspella
    SEPT - Glimmer
    Q3 Bonus Two-Pack - Lizard Man & Kittrina
    OCT - Ssssqueeze
    Quarterly Slot - Rokkon & Stonedar
    NOV - Rio Blast
    DEC - Saurod
    Q4 Bonus Two-Pack - Scorpia & Vultak
    Quarterly Slot - NA Skeletor
    Traveling Con Item - Gwildor
    Fright Zone Themed Figure Stands

    2015:
    JAN – Mermista
    Quarterly Slot - General Tataran
    Q1 Bonus Two-Pack - Batros & Negator
    FEB - Master Sebrian
    MAR – Prahvus
    Sub Exclusive - Despera & 30th Anniversary The Secret Of The Sword Commemorative Poster
    APR - King Miro
    Q2 Bonus Two-Pack - Huntara Vs Hunga The Harpy
    Quarterly Slot - Snake Armor He-Man
    MAY – Spinwit
    JUNE – Veena
    JULY – Goat Man
    SDCC Exclusive - Madame Razz & Broom
    AUG – Double Trouble
    SEPT - Quakke
    Q3 Bonus Two-Pack - Uncle Montork & Dree-Elle
    Quarterly Slot - Flying Fists He-Man Vs. Terror Claws Skeletor
    OCT - Entrapta

    DEC – Spinnerella
    Quarterly Slot - Stridor
    Q4 Bonus Two-Pack - Perfuma Vs. Evilseed
    Traveling Con Item – Filmation Hordak w/ Imp
    Snake Mountain Playset

    And that's where I stop... I really can't imagine there being a full-fledged subscription being offered past 2015. There are some that didn't make the cut, but I doubt a year of Vizar, Melog, Chef Allen, etc. being enough to keep people's interest up.

    Whoops! I totally thought I had Shokoti in there. In that case, I'd switch her in for Batros, then place Batros for Huntara, then place Huntara for Nepthu. Sorry Nepthu. You're outta there! Either that or the Melaktha/Masque 2-pack becomes a 3-pack to include Shokoti, and then Nepthu is back in.

    It seems like people want to finish off those vintage lines as fast as possible, so that's why the first three years focus mostly on MOTU, PoP, and NA. I sprinkled in a couple obscure characters or 200X requests when I could. Since the major "core" characters are covered from 2013-2015, the 2016 list mostly has a lot of the more obscure characters people requested; Filmation, 200X, mini-comics, jet lag, international comics, etc. I call it, the "die-hard year".

    LooKee I missed too...hmmmm. Maybe he can be a non-sub item, or a con exclusive. He's too small to be packed alone, but having him with a regular figure would make it cost more than a monthly charge. So, tossing him in would have to be tricky. I suggested that on the 30th anniversary of Princess of Power (2015), that the sub would include an addition charge, up from, for the mini-figure of LooKee. Then, on month between January and November, subscribers would randomly get LooKee as part of their shipment. You wouldn't know when he'd come, so you'd have to LOOK for him.

    Maybe the Twiggets could be a non-sub exclusive pack. I don't really see that many requests for them, so that is why I didn't have them in my list.

    I would add Illumina and Sleetah, but it seems like those characters will never get made. If we ever did see them, I think it should be as a Power-Con exclusive 2-pack.

    Stridor is something I NEED before the line ends. I suggested that Night Stalker could be a secondary SDCC exclusive, and then a repaint of Stridor on Mattycollector the following month. One sculpt, two beasts.

    Great list, Zodac74! I like a lot of your 2-pack combinations. The only thing I's say may not happen is the variants of Teela and Evil-Lyn 3.0. I'm not saying it's a bad idea, I just think Mattel would shoot for new characters rather than a 3rd variant of a character, other than He-Man and Skeletor. Personally, I'd also love to see a New Adventures Sorceress, but I doubt we'll see that. However...if 2015 is the year of the new movie, then maybe that WOULD be enough for a full fledged subscription in 2016, and maybe beyond that. There would still be plenty of characters to make; obscure or new, but plenty.

    I also wanted to throw in Evil Robot and Crystoll. I just couldn't find a place for them.
