Por el Poder de Grayskull!!!...
Ya tengo el poder!!
My Feedback thread!!
Icer looks absolutely amazing! Can't wait to buy this figure! Now that I look at Icer's hair, it makes me think that THIS is what they were trying to do with Frosta's hair (which didn't turn out quite right).
With Icer, they got just the right amount of translucence and "frosting" paint app. whereas Frosta didn't have enough of either. Her hair just came out dark and bland.

4 lots of 2 packs per year...
Now bearing in mind that MATTEL keeps to a year by year schedule, meaning that if they offer a sub all releases in that sub have to be available in a single year (I don't think subs can span years for MATTEL's legal system)...therefore if there is going to be a filmation sub offered, it has to be initially limited to 2013...then another filmation sub would have to follow in 2014.
With that in mind, it would make sense that each quarter of the year would have a 2-pack in it, (Q1 2013, Q2 2013 etc)...
So I conclude that BATROS and ICER 2 pack must have been fast-tracked by MATTEL and the 4 HORSEMEN, and therefore is highly likely to be scheduled for release in MARCH of this year!!!!! (ie next month!), with another 2 pack following in June, and one in Sept, and the final one for the year in Dec, completing our 2013 additional filmation sub...(then they would offer another sub in 2014)
I could be way off the mark, but that's how I see it panning out!
I guess we'll just have to Kowl it a night for today, and see what happens tomorrow!
It's a good job we can watch all the reveals from our homes tomorrow, rather than being stuck in the bustling, crowded ToyFair hall, where we would have to battle rammed up people to see the reveals!!!!

MOTUC WISH LIST: SNARRRLLL:
I like your thinking on the roll out of the Filmation figures, which are just awesome by the way!
Now if the other two things you are hinting at come to fruition tomorrow this board will have a meltdown that will affect the entire world wide web!
Of course there will also be the simultaneous meltdown of my credit card.
Just saw the pics. MANTENNA!!! Woohoo! Finally, he is near! And he is everything I could wish for, thank you 4H and Mattel! He looks amazing. And Shokoti, Batros, Icer and Castaspella? WOW! I think this might be the best reveal in this lien so far for me haha. And the thought of Glimmer, Scorpia, and surely Horde Troopers, Rio Blast, Blast Attak, Madam Razz & Broom, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeze, Filmation style Evilseed next year? Among others? Maybe? Would be awesome, just saying. No, I really couldn't be happier. Can't wait to see them close up tomorrow.
Edit: Since Mantenna comes with his grey crossbow, as he should, does anyone else think the white crossbow that was revealed a while ago will come with Batros maybe?

This Icer picture is great! Love the blue colour! Can't wait to see more!!!!
10 Most needed items for MOTUC...
Heroic: King Miro / Hawke / Dakon / Delora
POP: King Micah / Twiggets 3 pack
Rock People: Granita
Pixel Dan, I now know exactly how you felt when Mosquitor was revealed. My favourite Horde member is coming! He's already the best figure in the line for me. Look at him! Amazing Filmation/200X mix. Everybody happy, right? And the guy has four legs and can shoot lasers out of his eyes, what's not to like?
You guys are a bunch of Plundors, heheh! I was waiting to be surprised tomorrow but just couldn't resist looking. The new figures all look great, though! Here's my quick ranking...
1. Mantenna: Absolutely brilliant design! IMO, it's the best combination of vintage, 200X, and Filmation influences and a challenger to Ram-Man as the must-have figure of the year.
2. Castaspella: My #1 POP want, I was always hoping to see her before Glimmer. I'm very happy to see her in Filmation colors and it's cool that she has the vintage magic wheel behind her. Best of all is the magic effect bonus.
3. Shokoti: One of my top Filmation wants, too! I don't think she looks plain because she looks like she just stepped out of the Filmation cartoon. Her face sculpt may be the best MOTUC female made yet; Gorgeous yet undeniably evil. Her darkling minion is very cool, too...I wish I could get a bunch of them.
4. NA He-Man: I was happy enough with the original reveal showing his Jetlag look but the new vintage armor really puts him over the top. I may not be the biggest NA fan but I love how the space designs come out in MOTUC.
5. Batros: Another cool Filmation villain that's a pleasant surprise. Looking at his wings, I hope he doesn't have the same drums that the Sorceress got. I'd rather see them made more like Shadow Weavers sleeves.
6. Icer: To be honest, I didn't care much for the episode that he came from but his design is neat. The pic of him in the snow shows him off nicely and I think that the translucent plastic is a great way to make his plain design look better. I just hope he doesn't have Exploding Crotch Syndrome like the Goddess.
I'm also impressed with the initial sculpt of Castle Grayskull, there are a lot of cool details all over the place. I'll reserve judgement on the scale once we get more info and better pics. Being a fan of the Filmation castle design over all other versions, I didn't think I'd like the prototype version as much but I'm glad that I pre-ordered it. In fact, I'm kinda kicking myself for not ordering a second one now.
Well, even if this steals some of the thunder for tomorrow, the buzz it's created makes up for it. I'm excited about hearing all the details regarding release dates and whether or not the Filmation figures are going to be a separate sub or out-of-sub items. I'm very optimistic about the future of this line...If these are the non-core figures we get for 2013, I can only imagine how awesome the 2014 lineup will be. If I could, I'd sign up for the 2014 sub right now!
God I hate Stratos.
I hope grayskull isnt pinched towards the top on the left tower. Hopefully it's just terrible matty pix. Otherwise it looks pretty cool. After paint it should be great. That new pic of ICER looks like he has the same off white that Frosta has. Do they listen to anyone anymore? Is brilliant white plastic illegal or are all of the I-phones using all of it?
All of them are just great. Mantenna just blows me away, and I'm hoping, like a few others, that some of his new parts mean Modulok isn't too far off.
Between these and what's coming for Transformers I may just have to swear off eating for the rest of the year.
It was mentioned that batros could come with a stack of books well no new tooling needed as there is a stack of books in the ghostbusters line. Also I thought that cornboy wants a lizard man bad so I'm assuming he may come sooner than later if we get this filmation mini sub to which I'm hoping we do he may even be shown this weekend.
Evil Army of the Horde!!
Man, that surprise blizzard attack is really helping Icer's case with some people! Toyguru even got to play with him in the snow!
I was so so on Icer in the leaked pics, but he looks great in that snow shot. The blue is much more vibrant.
I'm hoping to learn of confirmation news of any Filmation (or Animated) subscription soon!
The figures look amazing. Like how they position Mantenna face-on to look like the vintage while being 4 legged and popped eyes. I do hope however that there are 2 heads (eyes in and out), but understand if 'cos of tooling costs one head is all we get.
Icer - wow. I cannot believe they have gone unique boots and armbands for this figure. I thought a cost saving new head was all we'd get with this figure. Goes to show Mattel prepared to spend extra money to get the translation from cartoon to toy as accurate as possible. Love the translucent plastic.
Staff of Avion - oh no! Is this a sign we won't get a Hawk any time in the next 2 years? I was confident she would be on the new Roadmap to 2015.
Batros - love the eyes! Is his head/mask fatter than on the show? Looks to me the wings are attached to the biceps which is good. Wings maybe coulda been a big larger. Wondering what if any accessory Batros may come with?
Shokoti - amazing! Is the Darkling articulated!!! Very interested to learn of her bio and whether she existed in Preternian times also.
Castaspella - Nice!
Castle Grayskull - never noticed the bat-wings accessory before. Keen to learn more about that! Is Clawful strangling my long demanded Grayskull Spacesuit? Looks a bit thin to be the spacesuit but hopefully more images at NYTF will clear this up. Or maybe it is a mini-comic King of Grayskull figure?
My great concern coming out of the picture ... I thought the scale of Grayskull was to be large enough for He-Man to fit in the Jawbridge riding Battle Cat??? Looks like there is only just enough space for figure to stand. This would be my one disappointment with the reveal.
Buck Rogers - Pass.
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized

I much prefer this blue to the leaked picture.
