Recent.... Spirit of Grayskull
Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Jitsu, Perfuma, Masque, Crita & Vultak
Needed.... Dragstor & the new Filmation line.
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
The curiosity is getting to me. I mean, Mantenna, Dragstor, Rokkon, Stonedar, Horde Troopers, Battle Ram, Castaspella, Madame Razz, Broom, Kowl, Imp, Loo-Kee, Two Bad, Tung Lashor...... I can't wait....
I enjoy all of the hints and speculation. It makes the wait for Toy Fair more interesting.
If the two pack was rock people, it could still be army builder by making a female and male rock person. One who just so happens to look like Granita. They could make the female a little tougher (big boned, whatever) so she can share some parts, like arms and legs. A few pieces for making alternate characters. Then they would just release Stonedar and Rokkon separately. That way they can capitalize on the sculpts.
I'd be fine with robots with a bunch of gadgets and stands, or a Filmation 2-pack. Heck, I don't know how they could mess the two pack up really.
I really really really hope they do a good job with the girl this time. Every time we see one, I think people get overly excited and say it's perfect. Not everybody, but GR fans are in a situation were they have to take what they can get, and that could cause quality issues. Like, only getting a shield. I can't believe somebody didn't get stabbed for that.
I wonder if they don't get out Troopers this year, would they settle for Octavia being the only Horde member released? If not, then my bet is on Mantenna. But it seems he would come later in the year, and not make this announcement.
Also, because I don't know better an there are uber-awesome fans on here, how many figures are we actually expecting them to announce? And what monthly slot does that take us up to? And do they only announce stuff that's well into production, or like, the final model is ready for show. Or do they drop names from time to time. Oh wait, they will show accessories, right!? That would be enough for me. I actually like that kind of tease.
---- faction(ish) talk alert, skip on by if need be ----
About it being selfish to not want to pay for figures you don't want, that's just not particularly thought out. You don't go to the store looking for a dozen eggs, and settle for only six of them not being cracked open. These aren't eggs, but you hopefully get the point. My new father instincts are kicking in and I'm using food analogies. Pretty lame, I know. Here's another that might be more accurate. I'm baking a sweet potato soufflé. That's what my family wants because that's out tradition; it's our goal. I don't feel selfish for not buying a huge bag of mixed nuts just to take out the pecans and toss the rest aside, but if the store only carries mixed nuts, then I complain to the manager. Yes, complain. Not in a rude fashion, but one that hopefully remedies the situation. Nothing gets fixed if you just sit on your hands and take what your given. In MotUC, we would go broke before anybody reached any kind of goal. That's for people with goals though. I collect will goals. Some people just buy the toys. That's fine. Sitting back in front of the TV and eating mixed nuts is nice, too. It's just not for everybody. So don't speak for everybody.
It's already selfish to buy toys for yourself. That sentence is semantically redundant. But it would be straight up irresponsible for people to spend their money on stuff they don't want. It's fine for people who want to buy it all, or people who can afford to be irresponsible. The model works. I get it, and I'm more in that camp than the other. But, from a PoP only collector point of view, this line is ridiculous. A separate line seems like it would be a god send. That's not me of course, I'm mainly vintage. But mix in NA, PoP, 200X, and other random tidbits, and the selection is still reflective of ridiculous.
If the lines were separate it would be better for everybody. If people say there's enough PoP fans out there to support it, then I wont argue with that. I have no idea beyond just this forum. But if it's true why wouldn't it be awesome to get a little six figures per year sub for both NA and PoP? That's not crying about my line being muddied up, that's me saying you guys have better solutions than two freakin' figures a year, and nobody is stopping people who want it all to buy all the subs. I bought 2 anniversary subs, they shipped with the other with no problem. It's fine.

Pop Culture Shock - Filmation Statues (top 5 most wanted): Sorceress, Skeletor, Man-E-Faces, Mer-Man and Two-Bad! AND, hurry up with Evil Lynn, her reveal is what got me started.
I'm actually hoping for a Filmation sub-line, that way I can at least avoid those bland looking bores of a character.
Separating the Chex Mix would be the stupidest thing Mattel would ever do right now. Vintage is scraping the bottom of the Barrel with the Skippable guys (The Rios, Energy Zoids, etc). The CORE guys are pretty much done (We're a Two-Bad shy of completing the core Evil Warriors) NA on it's own won't do much... they SERIOUSLY depend on All-around MOTU fans. Right now Vintage needs the help of the POP fans and 200X fans to keep MOTUC afloat... based on the claim that after February some Vintage-only fans claimed that they're quitting the line and that MOTUC is on its 5th year; obviously the interest on it has begun to dwindle... coupled with a couple of OTHER issues that have driven customers away (talking about costs, CS, shipping, and QC issues).
FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
Please keep this discussion to toys that may be revealed at NYTF and not individual forum members. thanks.
Does anybody want Rio Blast? I do.
I'm surprised that is not near the top ten...
