All I know is I want them all before the end!
Hey guys....I've seen Toyguru say a few times that he wants to get to releasing all the vintage MOTU figures by the end of 2015, and the core POP and NA characters as well. (NA I couldn't care less about really) Well what POP characters does he call core? There isn't physically the right months over 2 years to get to releasing all those figures unless they release extras along the way. So my question is, which POP figures do you think will be released along with all the vintage MOTU figures? Just curious to see how everyone felt about the POP faction and how much love particular characters get, and which ones no one cares about. Cheers!
All I know is I want them all before the end!
As do I!
Scott has several times mentioned Glimmer, Queen Angella, and Mermista as the "A-List" POP characters. I totally expect to get at least Glimmer and Queen Angella next year, Mermista would be awsome too, but she will take much more tooling. I also hope we get Peekablue, she's my favorite of the remaining Great Rebellion characters, but I would expect her to be held for a possible 2015 line.
I want them all, and more than I do most of the remaining vintage MOTU characters. I don't think there is a POP character that NO one cares about, same with MOTU. I would say Spinnerella rates low, she was only in one episode of the cartoon and her vintage figure is near impossible to find.
"Don't crowd me boys!"
Hmm...who I think will make the cut:
These are about 100% certain:
Mermista (I think one of the 4H mentioned wanting to get to her... maybe Cornboy?)
Kowl (as a pack in or Weapons pack item)
I think the following have a possible chance, but not certain:
Peekablue (they have most of the tooling done already thanks to Netossa.)
Entrapta (gets a bit of a bump by being a Horde member)
Lookee (maybe as a pack in or Weapons pack item)
Have a much smaller chance of being made
Spinerella (which would be a shame, because Netossa will be lonely)
Now that is what I think is realistic. Me personally, I want them all to be made.
July 2016 can't get here soon enough!
Actually over on the Matty forums TG stated that the new roadmap/plan will get us ALL the vintage MOTU and POP figures by the end of 2015 (not counting variants). So if that holds true and sub numbers reach their quotas we should have all the remaining POP ladies in 2014/2015.
You can read TG's statement here:
I agree the way it sounds all ten of the remaining POP girls will be here by the end of 2015. I would love to see Glimmer, Angella, Mermista, and Entrapta in 2014!
Most Wanted Kittrina, Granita, Hawke, Lady Slither, Hunga, Sagitar, Dylamug, Master Sebrian, Karg, Dree Elle, Uncle Montork, King Miro, Quakke, Butthead, Hoove, Spinwit, Nocturna, Kayo, Lizzor, Artilla, Vizar, Staghorn, Lodar, Twiggets, Drissi,Crystoll, Caz, Bubblor, Three Beast, Fang-Or, Great Black Wizard, Major Header, Ra-Jar, Red Beast, Kay-La, Red Shadow, Gladiator, Bandwidth, and Negator.
That is AWESOME news. I really thought we'd only get 2 or 3 more of the characters. I've been waiting for these POP characters to be released like they were in the filmation cartoon since I was a child, so I'd be shattered if we didn't manage to get to most of them at least.
I'd expect to see Glimmer, Angella, Mermista and Entrapta in MOTUC if the line lives on beyond 2013. I'm not so sure about the other characters however...
10 Most needed items for MOTUC...
Heroic: King Miro / Hawke / Dakon / Delora
POP: King Micah / Twiggets 3 pack
Rock People: Granita
The "confirmed" A-Listers are Glimmer, Queen Angella and Mermista. Also Scorpia if we're including Filmation POP/The Evil Horde. I would expect to see all of those in 2014/2015.
However, Toyguru has recently said that the revised release for 2014/2015 (IF there are subscriptions in those years) would include ALL vintage POP which would mean: Glimmer, Queen Angella, Mermista, Double Trouble, Perfuma, Spinnerella, Sweet Bee, Flutterina, Peekablue, Entrapta, Kowl and Loo-Kee. It probably wouldn't include any variants such as a "toy design" She-Ra and Catra or Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, etc.
Toyguru hasn't indicated the extent to which it would include Filmation POP including: Madame Razz and Broom, Sea Hawk, Granita and General Sunder. Or any members of The Evil Horde from Filmation POP such as Vultak, Filmation Hordak and Imp (in addition to the previously mentioned Scorpia).
I have a feeling most of them will be made sooner or later.
Those I would bet money on being made:
Madam Razz and Broom
I personally want a Razz, Perfuma, Flutterina, and Peekablue. So hoping they get those 4 out ASAP.
I'm not even counting Scorpia and Entrapta here, because they are Horde and WILL be made.
With so many figures left to make with potentially only 24 sub spots, I think only the biggest and fan-demanded will get made:
Exclusives or Pack-ins
Madame Razz w/Broom
MOTUC WISHLIST - Karg | Lady Slther | Kothos | Staghorn | Sorceress of Serpos Teela | Hunga the Harpy | Kittrina | Dylamug | Hawke | Angast | Zilora | Artilla | Quakke | Robo-Woman | Great Black Wizard | Enchantress | Red Beast | Delora | DC He-Man | DC Skeletor | Lodar | Fang-Or | Mini Comics Tri-Klops | Filmation Jitsu, Frosta & Kobra Khan | Hans Hammer Holder | Granita |
"My favorite Harry Potter movie is Troll."
I hope they all get made. Every single one.
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 think he'll try to get everyone in if he can. Most people who want PoP characters usually
Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!
One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

I think the following are no-brainers because they are major players in the show, as well as classic toy first wave releases:
The rest are tricky... there's the ones I really want vs. the ones most likely to get a slot. So, putting on my Matty Thinking Cap, I'd guess the following are most likely:
Double Trouble (in fact, I wouldn't doubt her coming later in 2013... she is obscure, and up until recently before all the panic, they've been pretty good at slotting in these kinds of obscure characters that also happen to make great action figures. She is also that rare figure that happens to tick several boxes all at once: she's a classic PoP toy, she's the only classic PoP character to NEVER appear in Filmation, she's part of The Great Rebellion, she's also part of The Evil Horde, in the mini-comics she sided with The Evil Horde-less version of Catra, she has a gimmick that is the female counterpart to Man-E-Faces, she is a blank slate accessory-wise, so the Four Horsemen might enjoy the liberty of creating new weapons specifically for her, or taking the opportunity to pack in fan-requested items. If she's not 2013, I really believe she'll be a 2014/2015 choice for the listed reasons).
Entrapta (as the only other existing female villainess in PoP, I imagine ToyGuru would be good to us by completing this tiny faction before the line ends).
Mermista (out of all the 2nd and 3rd wave classic PoP toys, she seems to be the most-wanted by both PoP enthusiasts and "regular" fans. I don't think anybody is going to say no to a hot mermaid in their collection, and the Four Horsemen should be able to knock this one out of the park).
Sweet Bee (because she has pretty much starring roles in two of the more interesting PoP episodes late in the series, and her looks in both the classic toyline and Filmation would translate well into action figure form).
Peekablue (out of the rest of the gals, she is more visually striking and might make for a more interesting-looking figure than some of the others. Plus she is not going to be all that complex to make and won't require much new tooling, already having those Netossa pieces available for reuse).
I'm not so sure about the chances of Flutterina, Perfuma, Spinnerella, or Loo-Kee. Not that I don't want them, but seeing as the plans for the line have changed, I don't know where ToyGuru ranks these final four. Once upon a time, I could see Spinnerella being a 4th quarter wild card kind of figure thrown into a year- her classic toy was impossible to come by and she goes for a small fortune on the secondary market. She would be a figure that PoP fans would most likely welcome, simply because they never owned her before. But nowadays, I think most folks would agree that they want Mermista, Angella, and Entrapta before Spinny.
Regardless of what Scott has said, I don't think we'll see all 10 remaining POP gals in 2014/15. There's likely to be 24 sub slots through that time and with 20+ vintage MOTU remaining in addition to the core NA characters, I just don't see 10/24 going to POP. There may be some additional POP Filmation to add though.
Also, I don't see any more POP coming in 2013 with Netossa already out and Castaspella coming in August. There are only 2 spots left after Mantenna and Geldor and they are likely to be filled by 200X, vintage MOTU, or Filmation. There's a possibility of an exclusive POP figure, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Speaking strictly about the vintage PoP toy characters, I think the givens are Glimmer, Angella, and Mermista. "Second tier" characters that might make it would be Peekablue and Sweet Bee, maybe Double Trouble and Entrapta. Long shots (even though I'd love to get them!) would be Perfuma, Flutterina, and Spinnerella. I say do a preorder for a Perfuma, Flutterina, and Spinnerella three pack and let customers pay for it over three months ($25 a month) to get those ladies out
I Have heard that every POP Cara should be out untill end 2015?
Everyone thinks different, but all i want left from POP is:
All the other Cara from POP i want are Filmation Cara like:
Madam Razz,Sea Hawk,Imp and Co.
So, for my Person it is waste of Space and Time to bring Sweet Bee,Mermista,Spinnerella or Angella
when Guys from NA will never come out.
But everyone will see it different.
I do hope this is true, though I can see figures like Spinerella (one short appearance in the cartoon) and Double Trouble (no appearance at all) being at the bottom of the list. I'd still like to see them both made, though.

Before the end of the line, I can honestly see all of the PoP girls being made. Glimmer and Angella need to be done sooner rather than later. At the very least, Glimmer needs to happen next year. Entrapta and Double Trouble I would love to see just because they're part of the evil PoP faction along with Catra, and the Horse needs more females! Lookee definitely has a chance to be an Orko like figure, probably packed in with someone else. The rest, I couldn't care less about, personally. I won't mind getting them, but I'd rather have Filmation PoP figures first(ie: Madame Razz, Scorpia, Hunga the Harpy).
- Two Bad
- Rio Blast
- Horde Trooper
- Tung Lashor
- Blast Attack
- Double Trouble
- Sweet Bee
I want all of them.
I think all of them will be made.
Females are cheaper to make, and I think the more we see of the POP ladies as made by the 4H, the more people will want them BADLY.
A Want List of Sorts: Filmation Tung Lasher, Roton, Skelcon, POP costume She-Ra / Starburst She-Ra, Lodar, and all the other POP, Filmation, & NA characters.
Yep. I think all of them wil be made too. There's no way Scott can hang his head whigh with pride if the line ended with making the Star Sisters, but all of the other characters who actually had figures back in the day don't get made. I really think he'll do everything he can to see that every character that had a vintage figure gets made.
"Yep! And now I'm gonna blast ya!"
