    If one figure gets made from this incarnation of MOTU, I hope it's Despera. The others... not so much. I want Ice Armor He-Man, NA Skeletor, Filmation Hordak, a proper Alcala mini-comics Teela with the ability to twist at the waist, etc etc etc before I want any of their current DC looks as variant figures.
    Must-Haves in 2015: Lord Masque, Quakke, Sagitar, Negator, Peekablue, Granita, Dragstor, Crita, Prahvus, Classic Toy Costume Catra Vs. Starburst She-Ra

    I've only read the first issue of the DC mini-series so I'm not familiar with most of the new designs. Personally, DC variants are so new that I don't think they should suddenly take up any MOTUC slots. I'd rather have Terror Claws Skeletor, Filmation Teela, 200X Sorceress, and 200X Ice Armor He-Man before any DC variant. The only possible exception is Despara, who I feel would make a nice Sub or Traveling Con exclusive. If Mattel wants to make DC variants, that's cool...After all, they are an opportunity to put out more MOTU product with media backing. However, it should be a separate line, made from MOTUC parts. Hey, if they show up at retail, good for them!

    Hmm, now I'm kinda paranoid that the big surprise at NYTF might be a DC Variant Sub, though...

    Not this fan. Ninjor and Razz take major priority over new cannon, and it's not even a close call in my book.
    Must Haves before MOTUC is complete! QUEEN ANGELLA! Mermista, Peekablue, Perfuma, Imp, Admiral Scurvy, General Sunder, Colonel Blast, Vultak, Clawdeen, Stridor, Nightstalker, Cat version of Catra METEORBS Gwildor, Saurod, Point Dread with Talon Fighter! Sagitar

    I still would love to see Icer, Dragstor, Mantenna, Castaspella, Two-Bad & maybe Sea Hawk, before any new figures are introduced, especially any brand new (2012 - 2013) ones.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    No.

    While it's great to see He-Man (and She-Ra or at least Despara) in new media, IF Mattel were going to release more variants in MOTUC then I would like to see them based on vintage toy variants (e.g. Flying Fists He-Man and Starburst She-Ra) or on the Filmation designs.

    I thought merman with a tail was cool and could be cool as a figure

    A retail line of these would be neat. I'd love a Shipwrecked Teela figure.

    I would say NO.

    Personally, I am not a fan of the DC redesigns, much less of the story, (IMO) the mini-series is terrible but I do like those one shots. Out of all of them, I would only want Despara to be introduced in MOTUC. That would be down the line though after much more characters (vintage, filmation, PoP, NA, vintage media) were made first. For those that want the new DC Motu in a sub line or in retail, thats fine and dandy but there are many old "new" characters still out there that have been waiting 10-30 years to be made which I feel Mattel is better off focusing on creating instead. I believe a Filmation sub line or even a variants line would be much better to have in place.

    Absolutely not. I dislike the redesigns, especially Despara and Evil-Lyn. The chainmail is a pointless change. The DC comics are just terrible.

    I would much rather get variants from the vintage lines or select Filmation, vintage mini-comic, or MYP variants.

    I'd definitely buy a DC He-Man, Skeletor, Teela, Evil-Lyn Sorceress or Mer-Man.

    Despara, in my opinion, is a given. SInce TG made the comments about the character, it makes sense that they would be guaging interest and it would be a cool marketing ploy to produce the figure to coincide with the new comic coming in April. Only problem is we probably wouldn't get her until SDCC at best, 4+ month after the comic debuts. But......if she is announced sometime around the first appearance of her in the comic (I'm guessing after issues 1 and 2) then the timing would be near perfect.

    I would like a Despera figure with her staff, two swords (identical), removable mask (or alternate heads)...AND a Nolar Blak Palace Guard head (an awesome bonus for those of us who have multiple Palace Guards).

    The guy who tortures the Sorceress (standing beside her when she's at the table) looks pretty cool...as does "Technicolour Dream coat" sorcerer MAA fights, but I would REALLY like a Despera figure.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I'm not a big fan of most of their designs. Despera would make a nice subscription exclusive, though.
