I don't think it's Sea Hawk. Sea Hawk is a far more prominent and important character than Batros, Icer, or Shokoti. If Sea Hawk was in the sub, there's no reason why Mattel would refuse to tell fans when he's a bigger incentive to buy the sub than any other character announced for the sub. In addition, it would make zero sense to make one of the few Filmation POP A-Listers as a sub-only figure that wasn't even promoted with the subscription drive.
I think the figure is more likely someone lame like Brownbeard or even Sea Hawk's father.

maybe. but sea hawk is second only to shadow weaver in my filmation original characters desired and i am motu before pop. specifically because they are real characters and not just 1 hits. maybe i am a freak.
i feel like sea hawk is a main line toy slated for motuc. one could argue shokoti is obvious for main line release appeal but then id argue she was used as sub line sales appeal.
Harken to the coming of RIO BLAST!!
While I'm not familiar with the character of SeaHawk, partly because I never really got into POP as a kid, except the villains, I do believe this will be one of his swords. Maybe other opinions here have swayed mine, and I would much rather see his with the more technical blue handled light saber than this version but hopefully he'll come with both. Given the semi generic sword sculpt it could be an accessory for almost any relatively short lived filmation character from Pludor to Lizard Man. Is the sub supposed to be a 50/50 mix motu and pop? Or will it be more like the current sub with just one or two pop characters?

Its pretty obvious : thats a typical pirate sword ! I hope and (pray) its sea hawk !
and I agree with wakko : shokoti and batros are as important (and iconic characters) as sea hawk, plus why thers still a lot of fans that consider sea hawk a pop character ?? He's not, he belongs to filmation.... pop refers only to the vintage toy line (in my world I guess! )
"The most powerful man in the universe..."
"I was summoned on the future..."
"Where hope seems lost..."
"A hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
I thought Filmation main characters like Sea Hawk and Madame Razz would be released in Club Eternia and the other high demanded characters (like Strongarm, Tataran, Huntara, Batros, Granita, Evilseed, Icer, Shokoti), in Filmation Subscription...
So, the sword could belongs to Blackbeard...
What about Lizard Man ? Is he a main Filmation character or a secondary one ?
People keep talking about "main" and "secondary" FILMation characters as if the FILMation sub will only carry the latter and the main sub will only get the former. Yes, Batros, Icer and Shakoti are one-episode wonders, but that doesn't mean the rest of the characters will be. Heck, Shadow Weaver was a "main" character, but Fang Man and Octavia were 1 or 2-episode wonders and were in the main sub. I don't think there's a rule at all. The sub is just there to get FILMation characters (both main and secondary) out faster.
And while I'm clearing the air and on my soapbox: the FILMation sub will feature both MOTU and PoP characters, both heroes and villains, but nowhere has ToyGuru promised an even mix of each.
Finally: the sword belongs to Sea Hawk. Let's stop debating that obvious point.
I think the Filmation sub was created just for that reason...Filmation. I think the main MOTUC line will focus more on vintage figures that are left. Many people just collect the vintage characters. So, having the Filmation sub, kills two birds with one stone. Give the hard core vintage collectors what they want ie Ram Man, Jitsu, Snake Face, Clamp Champ, Mantenna, and the New Adventures stuff too. While those who also want the Filmation stuff can get that sub too. I wish we had a POP sub too to make sure we got all the POP figures.
Many people have complained about the main sub and its variety. They feel trapped in buying it, even though it has figures they don't really want because the figs are not the classic vintage figs. If the main line goes back to that, that would encourage people again to buy the sub. The Filmation sub is great. I do think Sea Hawk is coming. I think it's "safe" to put him in the Filmation sub since many people see him as a She-Ra "friend" and not really one of the MOTUC vintage figs.
I think it would be really weird to place Sea Hawk into this Filmation line considering we have Fang Man and Octavia in the regular sub. With his massive appeal and appearances Sea Hawk should get a regular sub slot, cause I think we are going forward with the sub line again and the fear of the line dying is less a reality, as these newest reveals and reactions are showing. In addition to getting the must haves, we are now getting the most requested. I feel the line is gonna push forward and continue. Last year was a wake up call to Scott to get things in order and in the right way. Despite the Castle, we are looking good and the upcoming figures are looking STRONG to make me believe we may make it to at least 2016. I think the remaining 3 will be heroes, yet Sea Hawk not being one.
'Tis the wind and nothing more.....
I still don't think its Sea Hawk. I'm pretty sure highly demanded figures like him, Scorpia and Lizard-Man will be reserved for the main subscription.
Hey, hey !
First, I did not create anything ! I heard about that Filmation sub would be focus in 'secondary' characters....so, it's still possible we have Sea Hawk and Madam Razz in Club Eternia.
Second, Fang Man and Octavia were announced months before Filmation Sub !
On the other hand, as I said early, I still think that sword belongs to Sea Hawk !
- - - Updated - - -
That's what I heard when Filmation Sub was announced !
The Filmation sub is for "Fan Demanded" Characters and I for one think Seahawk is Fan Demanded.
Sea Hawk fits right with the the rest of the recognizable line up, also makes sense why they won't sell him day of sales.
If Shadow Weaver can be an exclusive used to sell subs, why can't Sea Hawk?! She's way more popular than he is. I think he's a great Filmation Sub exclusive. Now if they'd just hurry up and get to the good stuff...........like Plundor!
I find it hilarious and annoying at the same that there is a debate about this. Of course it's Sea Hawk. As for Filmation figures who the **** cares if they show up in the main sub or Filmation sub as long as we get them. It has been said there is no rule so why the debate? I swear some can get the answers to a test and still argue about if they are the right answers to the test.
P.S. Yes, they need to hurry up with Plundor.

FILMATIONPRESENTS.:*~*:Thank You, Lou Scheimer...and Good Journey:*~*:....For Every Destination is but a Doorway to Another...The Time Has Come for Crackers The Clown and Chef Allen in MOTUC!
I think Mattel will release Plundor...maybe next year ???
Also, Mattel should keep a high demanded character like Scorpia for sub exclusive (like Shadow Weaver in 2012).
Since I'm getting m favorites Batros and Icer I hope that Lizardman is also coming.
Also we were shown 3 villains hopefully the next 3 are good guys.
Is is now up and live please check it out and spread the word please!!!

I still think it is Sea Hawk but it does worry me they wouldn't want to announce him. I assume it would have sold more subs. Its the same reason why i really believe there is no possible chance Scorpia is in this sub. She would have been a huge hook to sell more.
