    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?

    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.

    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....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    I want the figures in the new style, but not with DC figures.

    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.

    I voted neither.

    If they want to make New 52 MOTU figures, send them to retail. No way do I want to pay $25 for those uninspiring awful designs.

    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!

    I voted no. I won't support the inferior DC/Mattel designs.

    WHAT??!! Isn't this the EXACT OPPOSITE of what we were told is happening with the line? No more variants, particularly of new stuff?

    I"ve always been a big comic fan, and the rare comic fan who has often preferred DC to Marvel (as far as big two comics go). I have maybe bought 2 DC books since the New 52 began. I dislike almost every facet of that revamp-- and as an artist, I hold (probably an unreasonable level) of disdain for those new costumes.

    What fans are asking for this? I'm not being facetious-- is there anybody on the boards who wants to drop cash on these varients?? A new 52 Teela, rather than a Filmation Teela, for example?

    These will absolutely take resources away from current Classics so these figures will really annoy me. NO! Do Not make these!

    Filmation and 200X variants are off-Limits but these weak designs are now meriting figures?

    Aw come on. That´s like chosing between pest and cholera for me
    How about 200x Teela, if another variant of Teela has to be made at all?

    So long as they wouldn't take away resources from MOTUC, then I'd be fine with it. But not if it could mean Classics figures would get cut.

    Well, if there's still any animosity between hardcore classic and 200x fans, surely we can come together against this NEW ENEMY!

    The only figure I want from the Nu52 is Despara, and I'm fairly certain we'll get her anyway, so I voted no. Nu52 He-Man or Snake Armor He-Man? Like that's even a choice!

    Same for me I dont care much for the DC figures, although I am a casual fan of Superman and Batman.

    New entertainment.

    That's why these are being pushed over 200X and Filmation variants.

    Some fans have been asking for the New 52 designs since last summer. I'd get BOTH a Filmation Teela AND a New 52 Teela (please come with both blonde and redheads). So there is a demand for those designs despite the loud dislike of the comic and it's designs on the forums.

    I want Despara for sure and probably any heavily detailed POP characters they may use in the comics. (*cough* Star Sisters) They should just use ALL of the POP toy line designs in the comics with added details and call them DC versions. Seriously, they can make this happen.
