    Exactly, I don't need another Vykron issue. Not something I particularly wanted and there are so many other figures from all areas of the canon that I would have preferred. Not to mention, I don't think these were done properly, they should have just gave us 3 unique figures, instead of one figure and 3 outfits.

    I'm hoping it's Madame Razz and Broom, with a packed in Kowl. SDCC can be the Filmation color, since Comic Con usual gets the more popular option, and the vintage toy colors on Matty after the con.

    After King Grayskull, He-ro, Orko/Adam, and Marlena/Cringer I am hoping they follow that same line with this year's SDCC exclusive. Vykron was disappointing and wasted a valuable spot that could have gone towards a more fan-demanded character. Although I'm sure they would have done things differently if they knew how far the subscriptions sales were going to drop for 2013.

    The idea of MOTUC figures based on the Roger Sweet prototypes was a great one, and in demand by a lot of fans.

    What wasn't fan demanded was the poor execution across the board that was "Vykron".

    Were there really a lot of fans asking for them to be made as figures? Maybe I missed that because I remember the reaction being that of disappointment, and not just because of the execution of the figure.

    He would make a good exclusive. He does need to be made. I want the magic book the vintage guy was supposed to come with as well!

    I think if they did that, Matty would have a lot of leftover sets. As a Filmation fan I'd pass on the Matty version for sure
    8 figures I still need: 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Filmation Tung Lashor, 6/Saurod, 5/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 4/Peekablue, 3/Hunga the Harpy, 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    Filmation Hordak!

    i have no interest in madame razz.
    a passing interest in rock people

    modulok would be pretty cool
    i was not excited for vykron but got him on black friday and i ended up really liking the figure.
    and since the line is hanging by a thread id buy anything except for madame razz

    I'd guess not Two-bad either. That's too valuable to Mattel to waste on anything other than selling subscriptions.

    The main audience for the SDCC figure is crazed collectors who buy anything moderately popular just because it is an exclusive. So Mattel has to strike that balance of "not too important a character" and "obviously from the He-man brand" to draw those people in. I say "He-man" brand rather than MOTU cuz to the average Joe they will remember He-man over MOTU.

    Rock Warrior 3-pack (this has to include Granita)

    Movie Trio (Blade/Gwildor/Saurod)

    New Adventures (Darius/Mara/NA Skeletor)

    Battle Ram

    Bionatops

    Slime Pit w/ Slime He-Man

    PoG (Eldor/Veena/Gray)

    Sagitar

    Catra Variant Pak w/ Panther Form

    Modulok/Multi-Bot

    Stridor/Nightstalker

    Masks of Power Demons

    PoP (Sweet Bee/Perfuma/Flutterina)

    Filmation (Shokoti/Melaktha/Masque)

    Castle Grayskull Robot

    Boo It makes me wonder if they'll ever get to her. She's *such* an important character to the MOTU mythos.

    1) They are legit characters that appeared in the vintage MOTU line, the mini-comics, AND the Filmation She-Ra Cartoon

    2) The 4H could do wonders with the "rock" pieces necessary to give them an action feature

    3) This would be a 3-pack OUTSIDE the subscription... and higher ticket items do better for SDCC anyway... Look at the Jem doll that was offered at SDCC last year: $150 and it was GONE before any other exclusive.

    I am going to say that it should be the Rock Warriors as a 3pack, but it won't be...

    Maybe it will be just Rokkon and Stonedar...


    They'd be missing a massive opportunity if they focus only on the male Rock People. Personally, I find them way too similar to be exciting, despite being vintage figures. Without Granita, I just wouldn't be interested...

    I agree that a three-pack would be a massive WIN - vintage fans would find the money, Filmation and POP fans would find the money and everyone would be stoked. Three-packs with the right characters - like this selection - would have no problem selling.
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets King Ahgo

    The Rock Warriors SHOULD have been the 3-pack, instead of the stupid Fighting Foe Men! Subs definately wouldn't have been down then.

    I think a SDCC Exclusive Madame Razz would receive the most backlash this line has seen to date.

    Strobo is the travling con exclusive, for all the cons (NYCC Power Con, etc) except SDCC. SDCC gets its own.

    She shouldn't receive any backlash. She's a fan demanded character that's offsize, and out of sub that you don't have to buy. That's exactly what an exclusive figure should be. While I want more slots, to get more demanded figures out, the SDCC exclusive should NOT be someone that's vital to everyone's collection (Mantenna).

    Ideally there would be more than one exclusive, something that will appease vintage fans that couldn't come in a general monthly slot (multipack (movie figs) or offsized character like Modulok) and something else like Razz or the mini figures (Kowl, Lookee, Imp)

    I would like to see to Egypcian Green Sorceress and the King Grayskull's Green Lion as two pack.

    They would be perfect to complement my SDCC King Grayskull he,he,he

    I'd guess Eldor as SDCC exclusive but would love a Slime Pit He-Man.

    I think Madame Razz would get far less backlash than even a well executed Vykron.

    I think Lay Ze-Man means that if MR/B were an SDCC item fans would crack it, to say the least, as she shouldn't have been an SDCC exclusive but rather a monthly sub figure instead. Especially if there were to be two variants (i.e. Orko/Prince Adam). Personally i'm not the biggest MR/B fan but i realise the role they play and in all honesty for me to complete my collection, they would be a definite buy.

    I really hope Mattel leave no stone unturned at SDCC 2013. The second half of 2013 and in particular early 2014 must contain the most wanted characters if we're to stand a chance of the line going ahead in 2014. Here's hoping!

    Oh, nearly forgot... 2013 SDCC speculation. Too early to say, i'll wait till after NYTF!
    Most Wanted MOTU Classics:
