    Figures That Deserves The 2.0 Treatment.....

    Which are figures you think should get the 2.0 treatment ? You can mention ANY figure you want, BUT, make sure the ones which are really possible !


    My 2.0 Wish list :-


    1) Adora

    2) He-Man (Filmation)

    3) Skeletor (Filamtion)

    4) Green Goddess

    5) Keldor (200X toy Inspiration - TG has mentioned that it is in the master list of Re-Deco figures)

    Maybe you should mention WHY they should get the 2.0 treatment?!

    Teela: missing twist wait, stiff plastic on outfit, only looking down...

    Stratos: no accessories, wrong wing attachment, should get Beast Man feet in 2.0 version

    The Goddess (fembody 2.0, unshattering crotch, new headsculpt)
    Stratos (feet, wings, HANDS - might as well just make him a 200x inspired figure, with rocket jet boots)
    Teela (fembody 2.0)
    Adora (fembody 2.0, sexier dress, no more grannypants)
    Positivity, folks!
    Letīs all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    ADORA & STRATOS!!

    Granny Panties deserves another shot. Also, can we get Stratos' feet & wings situation resolved once and for all??

    I just can't see Matty giving Goddess another turn, or even a Teela 2.0 since Evil-Lyn II used the original buck. I'd be happy with a Teela reissue simply using the softer tunic.

    How about Mattel just focus on getting the 1.0 versions out first and get them out correctly before going back to fix their past problems?

    I think the 2.0 treatment only works if they can make it an appealing variant too. Maybe 200x Teela could be released with interchangeable outfits or something to make another release worthwhile.

    I'm ok with Adora and everyone else but Green Goddess could definitely use an update...all of mine are still in good shape but I never move them and I'm terrified they could fall apart at any moment.

    Cringer, for all the obvious reasons.

    Prince Adam too. Now that the Filmation rights are cleared, I wouldn't mind a pink jacket with sword holster. It would be nice if the jacket was removable too. Maybe include the maroon jacket with sword holster as well. Throw in a Filmation head that people can use on their He-man, if they like.

    Why not make these a two-pack not included in the sub?

    Stratos

    Beast-Man feet, non-glued wings, painted details on harness.

    Anything else would be a bonus.

    Releasing 2.0 versions of characters for Mix and Match purposes would be great. Bubble Power She-ra was a great example.
    And they definately should make a new Roboto.

    Make it a Battlground version with MYP elements:
    - modern head
    - both arms interchangeable with weapon attachments
    - removable "metal" frame around the chest with rocket launcher on shoulder

    Press down on dragon's head. It will bite off your frickin' fingers !!!

    I have to admit that would be cool.

    This! Getting more characters is better than getting already released characters again and again.

    If 2.0 characters are released as quarterly variants like Bubble Power She-ra, a variant that can be used for Mix and Match purposes, they don't take a slot of a new character.

    MOTUC are perfect but my 2.0 wish list would be:

    1. King Hiss - most desperately in need of 2.0, with Earn Norem inspired snake-torso. I really do detest that limp, celery stick, rabbit toothed, non-hinged jaw arm snake lame-o excuse for a King Hiss we were given. A 200x human-torso version could be basis of this re-make.

    2. evil 'Avatar' Stratos with Beast-Man feet (OK, I admit that is not a 2.0 but an alternate character)

    3. Count Marzo (Filmation look)

    4. He-Ro with "G" armor variant

    5. Filmation-head Skeletor

    6. Hordak (blue - Filmation)

    7. Clawful (whose shell back stays on!)

    8. Tytus (taller!)

    9. Sorceress (without massive pegs at the shoulders - try using Emiliano's design)

    10. 'green' mini-comic Trap Jaw (potentially a new character - doesn't need to have interchangeable arms, only remodeled laser canon as per mini-comics)

    11. 'red' Beast Man

    12. Leo-Faker - with both orange Skeletor harness and orange He-Man harness

    13. "Chopper" Jitsu with 2 over-sized golden chopping hands, as per Filmation cartoon (however it would be nice to have Jitsu himself, finally!)

    14. flesh-toned Faker! - with purple Skeletor harness and Skeletor belt, as per Star Comics.

    15. Toy version Catra (with tail!)

    16. pink Swiftwind

    Have to say I'm not seeing the problem so many others are with Adora, Teela or Goddess. Regarding Goddess and Teela, I think a mere re-issue of the existing figures using soft plastic clothes and non-shattering plastic is all that's needed. Really, other than the shattering plastic issue, the Goddess is darn near perfect. I love her!!

    I don't know if all of these are true 2.0 versions, but they would be improvements nonetheless:

    Cringer (bigger & articulated)

    Tytus (bigger, with a working weapon)

    Megator (bigger)

    Prince Adam (I want his missing sword holder)

    Roboto (backwards shoulders corrected)

    King Hiss (see Roboto)

    Bow (Longer arrows, Double elbow joints so he can sight his bow properly. Those double wrist joints are worthless for achieving an archery pose. The DCUC Green Arrow figures have the same problem.)

    Goddess (non-brittle plastic, use new female buck with waist twist)

    Webstor (hard plastic hook, bigger rifle so he can hold it two-handed)

    Teela (waist joint, more curveaceous, BG Evil-Lyn rotating wristbands, blonde hair, extra BGTeela head with matching skintone)

    Toally in favor of a Green Goddess update.

    Teela is in the same boat.

    Mate, I am talking about 2.0 treatment & NOT variants !

    2.0 Treatment = "Corrected" elements of the previous figure. (i.e BP She-Ra)

    LOL! But isn't Bubble Power She-Ra proof that 2.0s will be variants from now on? I think the days are long since passed where Mattel corrects stuff-ups with re-issues (a'la He-Man and He-Man re-issue).

    Anyway, sorry if I've too off-topic'ed your thread.

    I agree with this.

    Any 2.0 version of a character that is released should be more than just the original figure with a bit of extra articulation. Mattel went the extra mile with Bubble Power She-Ra and I think that sets a precedent for any further 2.0 releases.

    For example, they could release a Horde Captain Adora with snap-on armour that goes over the top a new Adora would allow us to create a new version of the original look fo the figure.

    Personally, I'd like to see a reissue of the original Teela with just a softer dress like Evil Lyn rather than a 2.0 release of that character. I don't think Teela is crying out for a waist cut, the original buck twists fine at the waist as long as the dress material is soft enough.

    Sure, I'd like a Stratos corrected wings and even the flesh-toned Stratos from the mini-comic, but these are re-issues or variants of what we already have, not a true 2.0 release.

    I would like to see a He-Man that can raise his sword vertically above his head. That's a 2.0 variant I would pay to have. Maybe they could package him with all the pieces necessary to build a classic He-Man and a 200X He-Man.

    I would love a Teela 2.0 and Goddess 2.0.

    Teela would benefit greatly from the new buck and with the gauntlets finally fixed you can twist them so they don't look backwards.

    The Green Goddess really needs a 2.0 even more than Teela.

    The first one is defective.

    With 2.0 figures they could use the opportunity for the Goddess to include a nice bonus accessory or something.

    I'd also love a fixed Prince Adam with a sword holster.

    Your 100% right ! I would love to see Horde Force Captain Adora (Adora 2.0) with new hair piece (Similar to Adora, but longer hair like She-Ra), bright white paint dress, swappable red upper jacket - one with Horde logo & one without, fully covered lower trunk like Tall-Star & Marlena's rifle repainted in red !

    Blaster, Holster & Sword Protection can be mixed & matched from Adora 1.0 / Weapons Pak 2 respectively ! How cool is that ???

    That would give us a perfect & ultimate Adora !
