    Not that important. I wouldn't mind having Blade or Saurod but I'm not itching for them either.

    Well, since I don't want Gwildor in any form, I'd prefer that these be released singly as monthly figures. That way I can avoid buying Gwildor.

    Ok... time for me to sound insane here. I loved the movie. I know it wasn't the same as the mini-comics (which did get pretty cheesy for a few issues) or the cartoon (which was often quite cheesy) but as a huge fun of another slice of sci-fi/fantasy cheese from the 80s, Flash Gordon, I just thought the movie was a lot of fun. And I'm really disappointed it's not on iTunes. I was hoping when the Blu-ray was released, we'd finally see it up on iTunes.

    Gwildor is the typical absent-minded genius. And he's got such a fun little look to him. But if they do him, they have to have the one-eye-cocked look that Billy Barty used in the movie so much. It would give him character.

    Blade is cool because he's only a good fighter... in a world where everyone else has magic, super strength, technological assistance/enhancements, the innate non-human abilities of their species, he just has his skills. This makes him totally BA!

    Saurod... I like the look of him, but I have to agree with what someone else said; he seems better suited for the NA side of things. Depending on how the 4H make him look and what his bio has to say about his technological enhancements, he may become an addition to the Mutants in my NA display section.

    I'd really like to see them made since there were vintage versions. If they don;t get made I'll be disappointed.

    I don't think I'm ready to believe that until I see a bald Joey Cruel! When I see that, then I will believe!

    Gwildor can come with the "toy" version of the vintage cosmic key since the "real" one has already come out.

    Also a bucket of Robbie's Ribs? Also he has to have his grappling hook and staff.

    I don't think they're that important, IMO. Still, I would like to see figures of Saurod and Gwildor.

    For me they're absolutely essential, easily in the Top 10 of must-releases along with Eldor and Two Bad.

    With the 4H on the job, Blade could easily be one of the best MOTUC figures of the line.

    Would be great to see him with two heads: 1 Delongis-accurate, 1 toy style

    I love the movie and want all three, but Gwildor would be my priority.

    Essential to me. They were part of the vintage line and feel they should be in the Classics as well. I especially want Gwildor.

    I'm not God... this far...

    However too much "baldness" for one movie!!!
    Let's make an alternative head for Lubic with long blond hair:

    They are a vial part of the toy line. They were established characters and their toy versions were created. I had tons of fun with them. Plus, we got thank the actors who played Blade and Saurod for showing their support for the line by making those endorsement videos. I'm also sure Billy Barty would want to see his figure.

    Blade is an essential for me. He's one my favoritie Evil Warriors, and would great MOTUCized.

    I hope we get to Saurod too, he definitely would look nice. I would love to see if his spark feature is acknowledged (like an add on plastic spark piece).

    I'm not a big Gwildor fan, but he should be released in the next two years, probably one the last vintage related releases.

    All three are essential. They were all characters in the vintage MOTU line and I'd really like to complete that in MOTUC.

    I actually like the movie so I'm always eager for any MOTU movie merchandise. Besides the arugment that they were vintage figures and need to be included, I think a huge reason to release them is that they are one of the few representations of the film that can be included in Classics. If the goal of Classics is to represent every incarnation of MOTU than it certainly seems vitally important to release something from the film. While it isn't considered a classic by any stretch of the imagination, it certainly was quite a big deal for the property (even though it came out when MOTU's popularity was starting to die down).

    Personally, though, I look forward to these figures because I've always connected them with one of my uncles. He purchased them for me (along with Grizzlor) shortly before he passed away unexpectedly at a young age. I've thus always had a sentimental connection to these guys.

    Saurod is a very cool figure and I would love to have him. I also think it would be great to get a Gwildor. Blade I don't really care about, Tri-Klops pretty much does everything he can do, but I wouldn't be disappointed to get him. A karg would be pretty cool as well.

    However, that being said if the line ended before any of these figures were made, I would not feel like I have a huge hole in my display the way I would if say...Glimmer and Angella, or Mantenna, or Two-Bad, or Crita do not get made. They are neatm but not essential.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Blade is important to me because I had him growing up but I'd rather have vintage over movie figures.
