I would have to say, "No, thanks."
I think the spirit figures are awesome, and there are certainly a few more that would be appropriate. And since Mattel has outright TOLD US that they would be able to reduce the cost of the figures if we were willing to accept less paint-apps, there should be no reason for these figures to cost as much as regular figures (also because no new tooling would be involved). I'd be up for all the main cast:
King Grayskull (in a different color so the original retains its exclusivity)
He-Man (and maybe a slime pit version, even though I'm not dying for one, I know a lot of people are)
Teela or Evil-Lyn
another female for sure, but I'm not sure who; we already have TOD Sorceress, so I kinda feel like she's covered, and Evil-Lyn makes more sense (to me) but Teela would give people a chance to paint her and make their own of the regular version!

My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Stridor 2) Night Stalker 3) Squeeeze 4) Roton 5) Multi-Bot 6) Dragstor 7) Saurod 8) Blast-Attak 9) Karg 10) Lodar 11) Mask of Power Demons 12) TC Skeletor 13) FF He-Man 14) Talon Fighter/Point Dread 15) Road Ripper 16) Lord Masque 17) Filmation Teela
I'd like a Spirit of King Grayskull. I'd also like a Spirit of He-Ro, because to me, that's Light Hope.
A Want List of Sorts: Angella, Sssqueeze, Blast Attack, Multi-Bot, Peekablue, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.
I don't think I would buy a sub of repaints. I might cherry pick if some of those characters were given the "Spirit" treatment.
Not a fan of variants, but if Mattel decided to make any more "Spirit of" figures, I'd rather they kept them at full price. The cheaper production cost would allow them to make some extra profit on a line that already has such a tight budget.
20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...
Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack

no. You'd be taking what makes these limited types of figures special and making them not. I want a spirit of king grayskull and soh as well but it would get old
I'd definitely be up for some more "Spirit of" figures, just not sure there's enough 'worthy' candidates for a full-fledged sub or even a mini-sub.
I can't imagine there'd be enough interest past King Grayskull and He-Ro.
A few other translucent figures I'd buy would be:
-Spirit of Eldor
-Slime Pit He-Man
-Spirit of the Sorceress
Other than that I'm really straining to think of any others......... maybe a 'clear' figure to represent an invisible figure (it escapes me now, but wasn't there a Filmation episode where someone was invisible?).
Also, I've got to agree with Canada-Man, you wouldn't want to overdo it.
The special-ness would be gone if seemingly anyone can be represented in spirit form.....
No thanks. I have no interest in repaints at all.
I think that would be cool. Especially, King Grayskull. So, I would definitely buy it.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
No thanks. No gummibear sub-line.
Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.
If we could get some unique weapons with the figures, I'd be more interested. I'm just not sure if there are enough candidates for a sub. I would like a Spirit of Grayskull. Skeletor and the Sorceress would make sense also. We might get up to 6, but no more.
Only if The Star Sisters are part of it.

Not where I'd like to see resources devoted to.
IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!
Outside of King Grayskull, it seems a waste of money and effort that could be spent on other figures. So no thanks.

No. Beyond Lighthope we don't need a whole collection of spirits and ghosts. Lighthope being the only exception.
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 don't mind the "spirit of" type figures but wouldn't want to see a whole sub of them.
I think they are a cool special attraction type figure, something to be released sporadically and not a part of the sub, like a mid season exclusive almost, something you don't need but is probably cool. Maybe they could release them on Matty Collector on occasion... have them just pop up and disapear again. That would be really cool and would probably vastly increase the hits on their website - which would probably make the top brass at mattel really happy too.
**Scott please make me a Staghorn**
No thanks. No more extra subs please. As Highlander was promoted: "There can be only one"
