    New Poll by Mattel - Do you want the new DCU Comic MOTU as figures?

    This survey just popped up on my Facebook feed:

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZS9LDXC

    I don't follow the DC Comics, so what is a New 52 Figure? I understand the characters have different styles in the DC Comics, but is a New 52 Figure someone like Despara?

    Yes.

    I think they are talking about doing the DC Comics redesigns as Classics figures. I'm all for new variants particularly of default yellow cross He-Man, Ginger Bikini New 52 Teela (please come with two heads--one blonde and one redhead) and Despara, but I'd rather have them as singles if they are going to half-ass the DC part of it again.

    Why don't they do a poll asking would you buy a Battle Ram pre-order?

    THIS!!!!


    BTW I voted no in this poll. I don't want any more variants of existing characters. I might buy Despara if she uses the MOTUC buck and/or is compatible to MOTUC
    Awesome sticker included!

    New 52 refers to the other DC characters (Batman, Superman, etc). It comes from them relaunching 52 series a while back.

    I voted that I don't want any. I would take Despara if they made her but that's all. I have no need for Mr. T Beastman or Porned-up Teela.

    This survey is weird After This recent response to TG for MOTULA.org.

    With the confirmation of the crossover Between DC and MOTU, Mattel is thinking about to make benefit of That somehow? I'm talking about figures

    We do not have plans right now. We did offer to Superman / He-Man 2 pack at Toys R Us a few years ago but that line did not meet sales expectations.

    I voted NO. The poll options are not clear. Customer inquiries on the matty forums were either ignored, or worse, answered in a way that indicated that Mattel (or at least Scott) has no idea HOW this product would manifest itself.

    The way I see it, there are three options when you consider the MOTU figures.

    1) DCUC bucks of Nu52 MOTU figures?
    2) MOTUC bucks of Nu52 MOTU figures?
    3) All new buck that can incorporate Nu52 MOTU and Nu52 DC figures?

    The options almost double when you throw in the Nu52 DC characters for a hypothetical two-pack:

    4) DCUC bucks for Nu52 Characters (thus giving us that out of scale garbage from TRU a couple years back.
    5) MOTUC-style bucks for Nu52 characters.

    Then when you consider how it will affect MOTUC:

    6) Not at all
    7) Take away some resources from Club Eternia (ie inserting the Nu52 styles into the sub)
    8) Take away the possiblity of a PoP, NA, mini-comic, 200x, or FILMation mini-sub, but not affect Club Eternia.
    9) Replace Club Eternia altogether

    And finally, how would the success or failure of this offshoot affect Mattel's opinion of the brand overall?

    10) Lack of sales = doom
    11) Lack of sales = no import, as it is a side project.


    I'm sure there are plenty of things I'm not even considering here.

    But if Mattel (Scott) is unable to come forward and provide any real information about this, I refuse to entertain the notion.

    What I'd take would be MOTUC figures (maintaining the same face sculpts and dimensions) of a few characters: Teela, Evil Lyn, He-Man (in the upcoming outfit)... Not much else, really.

    As far as DC really goes, what I'd love to get would be MOTUC styled figs of Superman and Wonder Woman!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'm all for new and different interpretations of Motu. I only have one basic criterion- they have to be good, OK that's not true- they have to be at least average. Unfortunately the DC designs are below average IMO, so no thanks.

    So i feel like the community is split almost in half over this. I love this property and want to see it GROW AND GROW. It surprises me so many people are against new products and hate any change. There is no way every person is going to love every aspect and i think being so upset over a clothing change is unreasonable. He-Man has and will continue to evolve and I hope we all can embrace his future openly.

    A Lot of people seem to have all or nothing in mind. Some people want Filmation Hordak but not DC Hordak while i am the opposite. But getting one does NOT mean we can't get both eventually. I truly hope we get everything possible and i still will buy the figures i don't want just to support this property. Long love MOTU.

    In the property's current version, that may well be exactly what it means.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    The problem is that, for five years now, we have been asking for Glimmer, and Oo-Larr, and Eldor, and Sweet Bee, and Flogg, and a reissue of Teela, and a Roboto and King Hiss with their shoulders on correctly, and the Mask of Power demons, and standard He-Man with a sword aloft hand, and all sorts of things. And we are always told that skus/resources are limited.

    And now, all of a sudden, there is an opening for variants (yes, VARIANTS) that didn't exist a year ago. It's just sketchy, is all.

    Bring on the new dc styles. I'd prefer the being on MOTUC bucks, but if not...oh well. Its still MOTU.

    It's not about hating change, or new product. It's about finishing what's been started with Vintage, POP, and NA. We've all invested a LOT of money. Spreading our attention elsewhere at this point is bull. Also, while I've been very supportive of new product in MOTUC (see my past posts about Demo Man, Star Sisters, Vikor, the 30th, etc) These designs are plain inferior. There may be one or two good ones, but I don't trust Mattel to know which two are good, and I can tell ya it isn't He-Man. LOL

    If they want to do Son of He-man or New 52 stuff, do it when the commitment to the fans that have been on board for years is completed. Every slot the next two years is precious and dedicated. These version have not earned taking the spot of another character that's been waiting in the wings.

    The BEST I could compromise is if they want to do an out of sub 2 pack or something and see how it does. But don't release a full six figure wave or commit us to buying it in the main sub. That way those that want it can buy it, and those that are in the sub and opposed for the reasons I listed might actually be tempted to pick it up and give it a chance instead of meeting the concept with vehemence and venom.

    My vote is a strong, unwavering, solid NO!

    PS The fan base may not be unanimous in this, but pretty darn close. This isn't a 50/50 split that you're implying. This is more like 90-10. LOL

    We're not upset over the clothing change, we're upset that the "design" absolutely sucks. Most fans were down with the 200X look because it was a faithful update that made sense. The property can grow and be cool and not crap all over its own history, all at the same time.

    I'm not completely against change, just this change. The writing, tone, and character designs in "New52 MOTU" has been horrid so far. If the current DC comics are an indication of the direction MOTU will be taking going forward, then I want no part in it. I'm not going to blindly support something I don't like just because it carries the MOTU logo.

    Ironically, I bought the original DC vs MOTU mostly FOR the classic JLA characters...

    I have zero interest in the new 52 version of the 'DC characters.' They just aren't the 'real' verseions to me.

    On the same basis, I have no interest in the re-imagined varients of MOTU there either.... Despara might be considered a whole new character... but fake he-man nad Fake Tella have zero interest for me.

    I'd consider a single MOTU figure, IF I liked what I saw for $25, but I don't want any DC52 vs DCMOTU 2-packs for no $50.

    I have no use for the DC figures, outside of maybe a decent looking Superman & Batman, therefore I'd never buy the 2-packs just to get a MOTU figure.

    As it was I bought the damn GL vs Zodac 2-pack for the Zodac, and consider it somewhat wasted money because I gave the GL to my son....but the fact he likes it and plays with him all the time....makes it worth it, but that was the only 2-pack I'll ever buy again that's not strictly MOTUC or MOTU.

    And considering I don't care much for the comics outside of reading them through once for the entertainment and keep them for my collection....I doubt I'd buy any figures anyway, since I don't care much for the looks of them.
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I voted no.

    I would rather the resources be put in to making more MOTUC figures, playsets, and vehicles. Let's finish this line - or at least begin to complete it - before moving on to another line. After all, we've been hearing about limited resources since the line began.

    I voted for the 2-pack. Hopefully if they do this they will do a better job with the DC characters this time around.
