    I'd feel comfortable paying around $80 tops.

    $50 or less - these things aren't detailed enough to justify more than that.

    Great idea though

    Scott said that they probably would be something like 80$ like the Gentle Giant Star Wars figures. I really want those, so I voted 80$, that should be realistic. They can drop the waist-action to save some money. I even would be happy if only the head and arms would move. I REALLY hope that they will be released. In fact, I would pay even more, just bring`em on. MOTUC will soon be over for me, so these 12" figures would be something to look forward to.

    I'll pay $70 to $80. Please just space them out through the year.

    currently uninterested. I have such a large collection of collections to begin with, for years I have been trying not to get everything under the sun.

    MOTUC is just perfect for me. Heck I want the minis but I am trying not to.

    Somewhere between $70-$85. I REALLY want the top 8-12 vintage characters!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I paid $25 for a 31" Superman and the same for a 31" Darth Vader. They both had the same amount of articulation as these....but are bigger. If they sell them for $15 they're worth it.

    I voted less than $50. As I mentioned in the other thread about them, you can get better figures that are the same size or larger for $35-40. Even Titus and Megator were only around $40 when they came out, and they are the same size, with better sculpts and better articulation. I really can't see any justification for making 12" 80s style figures cost so much. A 30" Darth Vader at Target is $30. 14" Thundercats are $35-40. MOTUC Giants are $40. The 18" Gypsy Danger by Neca is $85 at BBTS, which is a bit more, but then consider the articulation and features it has compared to the vintage Skeletor, and the fact is is 50% bigger, and it is still a bargain in comparison. I think the 18" Marvel Universe Galactus was $50-55. I think the retail version of Metroplex was around $120, but that thing is about 24" tall and is also a fully functioning triple-changing transformer.

    Yes, I know Gentle Giant charges $80 for their 12" vintage Star Wars figures; I don't know the economics of that company licensing Star Wars figures, but frankly, I'm inclined to think that those things are either produced in very small numbers (really, how many people would want figures that look like that when you can get far better constructed 4" and 6" SW figures?), or they are just grossly overpriced to take advantage of obsessive Star Wars fans. I kind of feel like someone at Mattel noticed this company was charging $80 for toys that should really be $20 at the very very most, and they just went, "Wow! We need to get in on that!"

    MOTUC is the ultimate He-Man/She-Ra toy line for me
    Therefore I'm not interested in these. They would take up too much space at 12" anyway imho.
    The mini masters were tempting, but I didn't give in.
    MY MOTUC WANTS: Gwildor, Rotar, Mermista, Angella, Peekablue, Spinerella, Perfuma, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Tuskador, Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Saurod, Ninjor, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Twistoid, Hunga the Harpy, Dragstor, Vultak, Multi-Bot, Blast-Attak, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeeze, Lizorr, Hoove, Critta, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn

    I'm not interested. We all have limits and I think an $80 figure that is going to take up a huge amount of space is mine. Now, if we were talking 3 3/4 inch, highly detailed and articulated, I'd be in.

    You can get 31" Vader at walmart for $25. Matty selling a 12" figure for anything more than $12 is just another example of corporate greed and feeding off the fans.

    I'd say $50-60 if sold on Matty. Any higher and I'd have to really think about it and at most only get He-Man, Skeletor and Orko.

    But to be honest if these were yearly exclusives sold at SDCC I would go higher because a) I'm a bit more spend happy at comic con, and b) despite purchasing 100s of exclusives while attending comic con every year for the past 15+ years, each exclusive bought there is a fond memory of the convention and time spent with friends (despite the fact that getting these exclusives at the con is a pain they are still fond reminders of a fun week). Thus personally I'm willing to pay more for something that will have that fond memory attachment over what I will something that simply shows up in the mail.

    I voted 60 bucks.

    NECA is releasing some high-quality 1/4 scale figures priced around the 80-90 dollar mark, so Mattel should be able to get these 12" figures out the door at a cheaper price.

    I know it's a smaller demographic, but just look at Tytus, Megator, and Procrustus. They are all 12 inches and sport decent articulation. Plus, the vintage buck was used by almost everyone in MOTU, another money saving feature...

    Regardless of what they end up costing, I will buy them!

    I feel the same way about these as I do about the jumbo Star Wars figures. Not interested at all.

    However, if Mattel insists on making giant vintage MOTU figs, I would love to buy reissues of the vintage Tytus & Megator.

    I chose $60.00, but for me, quality and character selection would make what I'd be willing to pay vary greatly. If they are packaged in scaled reproductions of vintage packaging, like the Gentle Giant Jumbo Star Wars figures, I'd be willing to pay a bit more. I'd be willing to pay $100.00 for a well-done Scare Glow or King Randor, but only $50-$60 for characters like Stratos and Man-at-Arms, and $75.00 or so for classic He-Man and Skeletor.

    They sure are cute, but as I've stated elsewhere, I've made my choice of which MOTU line to collect, and it is Classics! Nothing else comes close!

    They are light and hollow according to the Pixel Dan walk through so I change my previous answer as $15 seems like it's even too much!
