    Remember that you DON'T have to rank all seven! Just the ones you want.
    Plus, you can write in another idea if you have one you like in addition to the ones listed.

    I really, really want to see the newspaper strips get collected. The magazines and the storybooks come in second.

    Newspaper strips are for sure my next top want followed by the book collection. My kids are loving their read along books and records and their golden books. It would be nice to have a complete collection in one book though!

    My top choice is the storybooks all collected, followed closely by the magazines and then the newspaper strips.
    Everything else fell behind that. I feel like there's been some cartoon representation thanks to Busta Toons' book and the Lou Scheimer book, whereas the old magazines and storybooks have been out of circulation for ages and ages and can be hard to track down.
    I wrote in a "box art/packaging art" collection in hardcover form. I would love just pages and pages of uncropped Earl Norem pieces and the like!
    The Next 13 I Need To Have: Lord Masque, Classic Toy Costume Catra, Quakke, Sagitar, Negator, Granita, Bould-Or, Crita, Lady Slither, Bubblor, Major Header, Compactor, Queen Elmora (She-Demon Of Phantos)

    Me too. That's precisely what I entered in the "write in" field (although I specified a more general illustrated guide, including not only the characters, but everything that makes up the fictional universe: species, beasts, vehicles, weapons, artifacts, spells, buildings, cities, regions, planets... including maps and timelines). There are fantastic guides/encyclopedias like this published for the Star Wars universe, and I'd like something similar done for the MotUverse.

    As for the ranking options, I chose:

    1 - book collection
    2 - magazine collection
    3 - newspaper strip collection
    4 - MYP cartoon guide
    5 - toy guide
    6 - Filmation PoP cartoon guide
    7 - Filmation MotU cartoon guide

    I placed the Filmation cartoon guides the last, not because I'd like them the least, but because for Filmation MotU we already have a guide (although unofficial) and for Filmation PoP a similar unofficial guide is supposed to be in the works. On the other hand, I placed the book/magazine/strip collections among the top places because these are primary canon sources (just like the minicomics and cartoons) and moreover these are the rarest/hardest to find sources (in part because most were only published in one country or region, so many people elsewhere weren't even aware of them during the vintage years). Therefore, in my view, these non-cartoon/non-minicomic sources (containing many unique characters, styles, etc.) are most need of a re-release to make them finally available to the MotU fandom at large (although, yes, I know one can find some of these sources on the .Org, but reading them online is not anywhere near as comfortable as being able to browse through a real tangible paper edition).

    I'm pretty happy with Busta's Filmation cartoon guide, otherwise I would have voted that higher. I assumed the toy guide would be vintage related.

    I voted for the toy guide. I've seen other lines get them and think a MOTU one would be great.

    After that I went with the cartoon guides: MOTU, She-Ra, and then 200X.

    My write in was for a comic book and comic art collection. This may never gotten with the license changing companies so many times, but I'd love to see them get the rights.

    Hmm... tough vote because it would be great to see all of this eventually.

    1 He-Man newspaper strip collection
    2 He-Man & She-Ra magazine collection (US magazine, UK magazine, etc)
    3 He-Man & She-Ra book collection (Golden books, Ladybird books, etc.)
    4 2002 Mike Young Productions He-Man cartoon guide
    5 Filmation He-Man cartoon guide
    6 Filmation She-Ra cartoon guide
    7 He-Man & She-Ra toy guide
    Write In - MOTU (and POP) Encyclopedia

    Like Uaxuctum, I put the cartoon guides and toy guide in spots 4 - 7 not because I want to see them less, but because there some nice resources online right now. I think for fans (and the general public) the comic strip, magazine, and book collections would draw the most interest in purchasing -- the comic strip collection especially as it's not well known.

    And of course a write-in for a MOTU (and POP) Encyclopedia; thanks for mentioning it Imp11, I might have forgotten to write the idea in if it hadn't been mentioned and I own the Star Trek, Shannara, and DC encyclopedias.

    Dangit, forgot to do the write-ins. If I'd remembered, would be a Official Handbook/Encyclopedia type book, or less likely due to rights issues, an omnibus (or possible omnibus set) of all the various comic book runs it has had, current DC run not included. This would include the original DC 80s comics (I know Dark Horse and DC have made deals before, so could pull something to include the two Superman stories as well), the STAR run, the SOTS promo comic, any international comics not included in the magazine collection (or all of them if the magazine collection was less likely to see the light of day) and the 200x comics. Oh, and that oddball unfinished one that turned up on the Vintage board some time back.

    I know the DH guys teased interest in a knock-off guide - would love to see that (not as interested in the bootlegs, just the crazy number of toy lines that cashed in with the style/look and/or the pose design (which would even include AWA Wrestlers). Not sure that one will happen, since Mattel has no real dog in that race.

    I hope the toy guide, if it gets made, covers the wide gamut of MOTU merch and not just the figures.

    None. I mean there's still people buying books in this digital era? I have the org database with most of the same art/concepts/infos for free reading. A digital version would be another story anyway
    "The most powerful man in the universe..."
    "Where hope seems lost..."
    "I was summoned on the future..."
    "A hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
    Whats next ?
