    Ideas for Power-Con Exclusives (Toys)

    Perhaps a thread like this already exists (and if so, I'm sorry!). But I was thinking after receiving another set of snake men yesterday that Matty really should give PowerCon an exclusive available only there (and through the org for those who can't make it to the con, like me!). Why don't we come up with some ideas?

    To improve chances of it happening let's agree on some parameters:

    1. Must be a character that is incidental and won't be missed by any except hard-core completists if they can't get it.
    2. Must be 90-95% existing tooling.


    My suggestion is a recolored pack of snakemen army builders (red and green, blue and purple, whatever).

    More Snakemen are always good for us and cheap for Mattel. Some new heads for the Palace Guards would be nice, too...

    If Power-Con ever gets its own exclusives, it would be the perfect place to offer the mini-comic variants that some people are always asking about.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    I think it would be the perfect place to get an ILLUMINA and SLEETAH two-pack, seeing as they have a connection to the fan-base and Val, Emiliano etc...

    I'm assuming that you would need thousands upon thousands of attendees to have a possible exclusive as even out of all of those people you'd have to factor that not every one would even buy it.

    That said, I was under the impression that Power Con while I'm sure fairly popular does it really get that many people to warrant an exclusive?

    I support the idea of Illumina as the perfect PC exclusive.

    If they've got a convention budget might as well throw Sleetah in and make it a 2-pack.

    If I understand correctly, then GI Joe club had exclusives that were official type custom figures or something like that. There are companies that do this for Hot Wheels as well. I cant recall the name they give them though. I would say if Mattel were so inclined, that they sell off existing stock, such as extra Snake Men and then allow either a customizer add customized weapons or armor, or simply just repaint the existing buck and then sell as an exclusive. They can discount the price for the Con, so they can still make a profit to customize it, but have it be official Mattel product. I could go for that.

    Anything that conventionally would not be good sub bait, but a smaller run at a higher pricepoint would be fine.

    -Alcala He-Man. New head, New Alcala Power Sword, New knife that straps to boot.
    -DC Comics He-Man: New Harness and new belt/chainmail loincloth to wear over classic belt (like Fisto's)
    -Mini comics Teela: (same old Teela but blonde hair and a slightly larger ponytail)
    -"Sword Quest" Adam (New: 200X inspired Jacket and harness, Hordak Flat abs, Hordak forearms and Vykron gloves, Na He-Man crotch) Add a Cringer and a new Adam bio.
    -(2012) Minicomic Sorceress Teela: Reuse Weaver's "legs", shoulders and Torso. New Crotch, head, biceps and lower arms. The holes on her back can be covered with a new orange and white piece like the one on Sorceress Teela's back.

    The G.I.Joe Collector's Club is a licensed Hasbro affiliate, and their figures are produced at their expense using Hasbro molds and factories. They essentially produce full-quality Hasbro-level figures, but the expenses are taken on by them, and the profits are theirs, if there are any to reap.
    My 2016 Wishlist:

    2.0s: HE-MAN, Teela
    Filmation: KITTRINA, Vultak, Dylamug
    200x: VEENA, Prahvus
    NA: CRITA, Staghorn, Quakke, Butthead
    Concept: RED BEAST, Tony Guerrero He-Man

    Illumina and Sleetah would make the most sense.

    If not a Power-Con/Org exclusive, perhaps a traveling exclusive offered at Power-Con before anywhere else.

    I think if anyone here can get Mattel to do anything that would Rock.

    I got it!

    How about an exclusive PowerCon Action figure weapon!
    That would be badass and probably a lot cheaper, maybe more feasible to get Mattel to do especially being the first exclusive. Just an Idea

    I want one already!
    And you thought Skeletor was dead???
