I REALLY don't want Light Hope in a physical corporeal form as an action figure, that would be BAD and a very easy pass. Now a diarama of his pool and light up cylinder might be cool.
My top 10 characters: 10/Filmation Ram Man, 9/Filmation Count Marzo, 8/Uncle Montork & Dree-Elle, 7/Kothos, 6/Filmation Mer-Man, 5/Filmation Leech, 4/Filmation Tung Lashor, 3/Twiggets (Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina), 2/Hunga the Harpy, 1/Dylamug.
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Stridor 2) Road Ripper 3) Vintage Fright Zone 4) Dragon Walker 5) Land Shark
Can't wait for a Kulatak chief either! Did he have a name?
Dekker was made accurate, the character was never that exciting. Just a human warrior.
Lord Dactys as a gargoyle-like character would look more spectacular as most monsters...

If it is unlikely that we will get the Filmation variant of the Count, then to be fair we should get the Filmation version of Evilseed first.
Evilseed is my most wanted figure since the line began. If its filmation version I think most of the fans will pass. In my opinion the Filmation Evilseed looks boring and stupid. THis is be the 2nd figure I wouldnt buy in the entire line....with the first being vykron and I dont miss him.
WE NEED EVILSEED 200X!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I may be to easy to please but I loved Vykron. Kick a.. barbarian gladiator with a big ax is always MOTU in my book. Maybe it was the presentation/packaging that fans didn't like? The warriors 3 (Guerrero 3) were always big wants of mine tough so maybe I'm a tad biased.
As far as 2013 goes, Brians hint could also mean Light Spinner. If so I hope Matty adds a Shadow Weaver type goody to intice the masses. LoL

The Year Of The GOAT Is Upon Us
I think most people will buy either they release, and probably the same amount will avoid both for various reasons, so 30 years of waiting trumps 10 years of waiting in my eyes. We already have belly-shirt "club kid" Marzo that we didn't want, so give us Filmation Evil Seed.
I'd DEFINITELY take an oversized diorama of Light Hope and his pool with shards of crystal. I DON'T want a 'human form' Light Hope because he didn't have a human form - he was a speaking aura (which was kinda the point)... 'The Crystal Castle' suggests he's almost a prisoner in the castle, when he asks She-Ra to 'visit him often'. A 'human form' Light Hope is a lame idea.
Why am I getting that sinking feeling?

Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Dylamug - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets - King Ahgo - Filmation Grizzlor, Mantenna, Leech, Modulok and Multi-Bot
If the Four Horsemen designed him, then Light Hope has the potential to be a VERY cool figure.
Maybe I'm in the minority but the 200X characters are my least liked faction. None of the characters designs appeal to me. Didn't care for Carnivus, Faceless One, Marzo, Dekker etc. I like them but they just seem so bland compared to the other characters. I want to see some more Na, Pop, and Filmation ranks filled before we get anymore 200X. I know many will disagree, but they just don't excite me as much.
Most Wanted Kittrina, Granita, Hawke, Lady Slither, Hunga, Sagitar, Dylamug, Master Sebrian, Karg, Dree Elle, Uncle Montork, King Miro, Quakke, Butthead, Hoove, Spinwit, Nocturna, Kayo, Lizzor, Artilla, Vizar, Staghorn, Lodar, Twiggets, Drissi,Crystoll, Caz, Bubblor, Three Beast, Fang-Or, Great Black Wizard, Major Header, Ra-Jar, Red Beast, Kay-La, Red Shadow, Gladiator, Bandwidth, and Negator.
Light Hope would actually be pretty cool and more exciting than the rock warriors.

I'd like Light Hope in humanoid form, especially if he had design elements from the (animated) Crystal Castle. If so, Light Hope would be a good companion for Castle Grayskullman.
Maybe it'll be a mighty spector variant. Maybe we'll get a heart on his chest this time.
I'll need to see a human form Light Hope before I denounce it. I'm finicky that way.
The idea could be cool though. It's all about the design. If it is for SDCC and has special packaging, then they could do a light-up diorama that you could just take the figure out of and WHAM - screen accurate Light Hope. But for people who like the figure design, you've got that too.

With all the characters yet to be made and the fact that we'll likely get less slots in 2014, I think that this would be a bad move. We don't need a Light Hope figure a la Horde Prime at this point of the line. The previous rumors (Madame Razz, Rock People, Filmation Hordak with Imp, Evilseed...) at least dealt with highly requested characters for many collectors... But Light Hope...
With the disappointment of Vykron last year, I'm really expecting something better this year...
10 Most needed items for MOTUC...
Heroic: King Miro / Hawke / Dakon / Delora
POP: King Micah / Twiggets 3 pack
Rock People: Granita
Gimme The Rock People or The Horde Troopers already. As exclusive or otherwise. Dangit!
If we are ever going to get a Light Hope then a SDCC exclusive (Or the sub line or travelling exclusive) is the best place for him honestly. Just like with Vykron... a character that had some "cult appeal" and some interest from avid "want everything" type collectors but could be missed if you were not that interested. That is exactly what an exclusive out of the sub character should be. I don't think Vykron was a disapointment, other that the mechanics of the toy being a bit flawed.
I know we are in a different ball game now that the roadmap has been scrapped and from next year we are getting core characters, so this SDCC is the last chance really for characters like this before say 2016. I am not exactly crying out for a Light Hope figure, but I have every faith that the 4HM will deliver if that is what we are getting and that helmet/mask they showed months ago looks kinda like a good guy version of Horde Prime's mask... which is why I said at the time a Light Hope could very much be on the cards.
I am optimistic the line will continue for long enough for us to get Rock Warriors, Scorpia, Evilseed, Two-Bad and everybody... folks just need to be a bit patient. So maybe we should be excited about the last few slots being more unpredictable?
Cannot wait to see what we are getting
