    That would be SOOO cool. I have always wondered why Mattel would not make Barbies out of POP characters. They would be brilliant and I would buy them for sure! Throw in a Sorceress, Evil Lyn, and Teela.

    I hope they're not talking about the 'special program that enables them to bring out more wanted characters sooner' that got greenlit months ago...

    We all know about that by now, be it filmation or pop-sub, 2-packs...

    Could news of a new animated series come out of something like a Matty NYTF panel? Or would it definitely be regarding a "product" (action figure, playset, vehicle, weapons/head pack, etc.)?

    A Filmation Sub just might save Classics for 2014!

    Well, it must be that program Scott was talking about that’s supposed to get more fan-demanded characters out faster. Like everyone else, I’m guessing (and hoping for a) Filmation sub.

    I'm pretty certain the surprise is referring to something for the Classics line.

    I think a vintage figure should be the sub exclusive in 2014. If it's an all star year with mainly vintage MOTU (Toyguru said he'd try to finish up vintage as much as possible next year) then there is no excuse for vintage fans (who apparently are the ones who keep the line alive) to sub up! I think Two-Bad should definately be the sub exclusive.

    POP/Filmation fan had to in 2012. Now time for vintage fans to step up! (and for the record I want Two-Bad myself)

    And if a picker has not subbed by now to get the $25 price, they never will. The sub exclusive will not make a huge difference in sub numbers, even if it was Two-Bad, pickers would pay more from BBTS or Ebay to get him instead of subbing, that's how it works. Sure a few may say, ah screw it, I'll sub, but most long time pickers have already said they'd never sub up. I only did for the $25 price, and so I wouldn't have to sit DOS and fight for anything. But I could have just as easily went to BBTS and PO'd, that's what I did last year. I PO'd from BBTS and cancelled it once I got it DOS, I got Shadow Weaver from a friend for selling another two he had, otherwise, I would have never bought her, as I didn't care for her.
    The cherry pickers are mainly POP and NA fans. For the amount they get IN the sub, it's easier/cheaper to buy the sub figure from a reseller and then buy DOS the 2 figures from the 12 monthly figures they want. Easy! From a business perspective, you need to keep the vintage fans hooked. Ram Man SHOULD have been the sub exclusive in 2013.

    i disagree with this point most fans of POP or NA are fans of the entire franchise and have subbed all along. The POP and NA fans are never running around saying don't make this or don't make that as we like it all. We just want a bigger share of the year than 2 or 3 slots between POP, NA, and Filmation.

    taken from my thread here...
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...Patterns/page2

    ..here is my estimations of who/what will be shown at NYTF...

    ==================================================

    Based on guesswork as of the currently leaked/hinted information and teasers, and based on visible patterns in the line to date... and the comment on the new 10 figure list that Toy Guru replied to.

    I predict the following reveals now for NYTF...

    [Obvious]- Castle Grayskull Prototype - 4H announced it was done and heading to painting

    Part of the MOTUC 2013 SUB reveals...

    August - Mantenna ="Reason - August prominently features a monstrous humanoid character [reissue or new figure]. Also we still have ALOT of tooling unused in comparison to previous years, so a major tool standard figure fits this slot. Also Mantenna is the only remaining cor horde faction member left unmade at this point and is a mjor fand demanded figure."

    September - Ninjor="Ninjor is a super easy figure to make at this point requiring 4 or less new parts. This would also help balance the tooling budget closer to 0 with the addition of Mantennas multiple leg design, as well as scores another skeletor evil warrior slot for 2013 as we always seem to get 7 skeletor evil warriors "reissues or new" per year. "

    October - Fluterinna="Reasons - Both September and October have both been host to featuring PoP characters [reissues or not]. Also Flutterina is also a popular fan requested PoP figure."

    As for the 2 pack item - EITHER 2 two pack of evil warriors/or/ Filmation Hover Knight Robots.. but ...[if mattel has any brains at all]... not the horde troopers =[/B] Reasons, after the sub scare, I expect the horde troopers to be held back for the 2014 sub to help it sell as it is in major danger now due to rising shipping costs. The Hover Knight Robots are also a fan requested army builder from filmation. But lastly the slots could be used to simply push out 2 more figures to help get the line closer to completion before it ends."

    November - Geldor = "Fan vote character/already announced"

    December - ICER/or/Strongarm = "Reason - We seem to get a Filmation figure at this time each year, and they are the only 2 left of Skeletors evil warriors faction from filmation who have not been made and are popular and this would also bump the evil warriors to there skeletor evil warriors quota of 7 per year releases "reissue or not" mark with icer or Strongarm."



    Outside the Sub Predictions...

    The Battle Ram Chariot = "Reasons - regardless what Toy Guru claims we are due another vehicle release in this quarter as this was when a vehicle was released this time last year. Plus of all vehicles the Battle Ram has been THE most requested to be made since its initial reveal as a testbed for what the 4H could show that they could do with MOTUC vehicle."

    Weapons Pak = Reasons - we always get a weapons pack each year now, and we are due a reveal of one. - Items included and why...

    Rattlor MYP Armor - already tooled
    Strobo Gun - already tooled
    Kowl mini figure - major fan requested figure, and as a pack in he is made an fans are happy, and as a mini figure will cost MUCH less than a vintage scale Kowl.
    Filmation Accessories - as per the 4H request for ideas for the weapons pack

    Do you think that they'll be doing somehting special for MOTUC's 5th anniversary? 'Cause, correct me if I'm wrong, but, isn't Nov. or Dec. MOTUC's 5 year mark?

    and when that happens (more than 2-3 POP slots) then making such as Scorpia the sub figure will make sense. Until then it should be a figure from the most popula era which seems to be the vintage line.

    Just to add I'm a POP/Filmation fan and I DO NOT LIKE IT ALL.

    This is well thought out. However, Scott specifically said that the new program (out of sub item(s)) would get more fan demanded characters (he used this term) out faster. None of your suggestions fit in with that, apart from Kowl being with the weapons pack.

    Two-Bad should be (and will most likely be) a normal release. If a vintage figure had to be an exclusive I would say the appropriate choice would be any one of the following:

    a) a Rokkon & Stondar 2-Pack
    b) a Rotar & Twistoid 2-pack
    c) Multi-Bot

    But I still think it will be a popular Filmation release or Eldor.

    Well for me it would really depend how detailed they were and how many/what accessories came with them (invisible stands, battle damage pieces, etc). I have always dreamed of the Hover Robots actually becoming figures! If they were smaller in size a 4-pack would be really cool seeing as there would be no interchangeable heads.

    This would be the perfect release to include the magic portal with. I always remember those robots pouring out of those portals!
