I think now watching New Adventures, I really would love some of the folks unfamiliar with that series to give it a look. If anything, you'd argue that some NA characters should have had more unique parts (Flogg and Slush Head could have shared shin guards). I think Mara could have great pieces to share with Granita.

IF we get a 2014? They work a year in advance so they should know whether 2014 is happening or not by now.
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.
Maybe the Filmation sub, if we do get one, will be 6 figures this year. Maybe if it is successful, we will see it become a full fledged subscription. We all know they have plenty of fun characters to choose from. So it's totally possible. Again, it depends on the consumers and if they buy it and but a lot.
I'd want Kayo and the others too.

For example, I don't personally see the big fuss about Shokoti and Masque, as they each only fully appeared in one episode as well. Sure, they look cool visually and I wouldn't mind having them in my collection, but I'd honestly rather have King Tamusk come first, for example. I seriously doubt that's going to happen for obvious, popular reasons, but I know they have their fans and I wouldn't begrudge anyone their opinions . Too much of that going around here lately.......

And as far as the shipping, you're right; that is the main problem. If Scott wants to keep this line going they need to resolve that issue. It is one of the top problems with the line. If they correct this than the sales will be golden again. Trust me. As far as Castle Grayskull, people are going into it with a year to save, which is info well in advance. This shouldn't be a problem unless people are irresponsible in their saving.
As far as NA characters, My poll for the most essential characters has the following results at 94 votes:
1st - Flogg
2nd - Hydron
3rd - Crita, New Adventures Skeletor
4th - Sagitar
5th - Mara
6th - Darius
7th - Quakke, Tuskador (tie)
8th - Lizorr
9th - Hoove
10th - Master Sebrian

Uhm, what now??
Sweet Bee is to bcrduke
As Mosquitor is to Pixel Dan
As BG Teela is to MegaGearMax
Which is likely why she'll never happen . Sighhhh.
Actually, I know you're off the mark on a couple of thoseI really think Multi-Bot, Rokkon, Stonedar, Granita, Blade, Saurod, Gwildor and the Meterobs are goners. Too much tooling/engineering on Mattel's part.

A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Buzz-Saw Hordak, Dragstor, Perfuma, Dare, Prahvus, Ceratus, King Chuboolu, Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.
Be sure to read Book of Evil Part 2: The Bells of Doom, only in the He-Man.org Fan Fic & Media forums!
Mattel: "One of the issues with white is that bright white tends to look unfinished on plastic product."
Says who?! We are the consumers, we're the ones buying these things and no one thinks that! BP She-Ra looked a much brighter white than She-Ra V1 and EVERYONE thinks V2 looks better! I have never heard of anyone saying "I'm glad Frosta is grey instead of white because she would look unfinished if she was white". So shut-up with that already!!!!!
Good Buyers/Sellers/Traders: Royalt1us, chrisbryan, AGE, UnemployedSkeletor, EwR-Disaster, Kero, jaggerart, Uki, skully, overlordofevil, Neo, He-Bruely, returnofplex, Jonny Tyler, Herewegoagain, lemure77, bigassbuzz. (if I've had a transaction with you and your not on this list, please remind me.)
Chef Allen = 5 or 6 appearances (with dialog) in the Filmation series, plus a comedic guest spot in the parody YouTube video (what's going on).
Illumina = 1 pin-up drawing, with no name attached, history, or Mattel approved background.
Winner, by sheer involvement with the franchise alone, is Chef Allen. Making him more important by default.
Sorry you don't approve, but...frankly, Illumina has less significance than any character on this list, with the exception of the Slave Girl, and even the Slave girl is getting more recognition in my Poll than Illumina.
I'm not against Illumina getting made, but you're pretty ridiculous to say getting ALL of those characters isn't incredible because she isn't there.

No, what he's saying that Getting Chef Allen over a bunch of other characters (from Filmation, MYP, MVCreations, New Adventures, etc.) isn't incredible...
How Popular IS Chef Allen?
Did he make it to the top picks on the fan vote?
Who is Chef Allen? The Chef... Who is Illumina? A female Gar Warrior.
Now which one of these screams Action Figure: The Cook, or a Female Warrior?
Who is easier to make For Mattel? (logistically speaking, reused parts vs new parts)
Illumina is NOT on the poll... Before you mention that she can be a write-in candidate with Other you must take into consideration the following fact:
a Write-in character is often less likely to get more votes than one of the options already present on the poll.

FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.
If they do Modulok, they will have solved a lot of engineering problems that also are associated with Multi-bot. Blade could be made from existing parts, with a new head and armor. The same is probably true of Saurod as well. Rokkon and Stonedar could share much of the same mold. In fact, the only thing I see on MegaGear Max's list that has almost no chance of getting made is the Meteorbs. Even then, I could see them doing them as a non-articulated pack-in with the Rock People.
We know that TG loves the Rock People. I bet we see one this year...
My guess is that Brian is referring to Blade and Saurod.
The Meteorbs should have no place in Classics. They were out of place in the 80's and they would be out of place now. They originated from a different toyline from Bandai in Japan if what I remember is accurate and unless completely re-imagined/redesigned they have no place in this line - they are just atrocious. NO METEORBS!
The Rock People on the other hand need to be made!!! I can't wait to see them!!!
20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...
Heroic: King Miro / Hawke / Dakon / Delora
Evil: Evilseed / Lodar
POP: King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
Horde: Vultak / Hunga / Prahvus
Rock People: Granita
NA: Darius / Sebrian / Crita
