    Huntara Vs. Lord Masque: The Org Speaks!

    So now we know the SDCC attendee vote this year is determining who will make it into the line as a monthly figure (presumably in 2014?).
    Huntara Vs. Lord Masque.
    So... who here wants who?

    I would choose Lord Masque.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Huntara, I think she would make a more interesting looking figure.

    I love how this thread reads Huntara vs Lord masque the Org speaks. The org has no voice in this matter unless said members are attending the SDCC Matty Palooza Panel. Voting in a poll here on the org does nothing, only SDCC attendees get to vote.

    Unless enough people attend one group of fans could sway the vote. So I urge as many as possible who can attend to make this Vote fair so that neither side stuffs the ballet box because both are highly wanted characters by everyone and Mattel shouldn't be making only those fans at SDCC choose.

    Better yet this vote should be open to every 2014 subscriber since the winner of the vote will be in the sub. I mean this isn't like Panthor flocked or unflocked we were all getting Panthor, or Granamyr Red or Green It was still going to be Granamyr.

    This vote isn't right or fair of mattel to force since fans want both these characters and now some are forced to choose for everyone.

    I voted Huntara.

    BUT let me say, i think this given choice is not fair because we already get Shokoti and a lot of people will say she isn´t complete without Masque.

    And in a way the might be right.

    Why not pair up:

    Huntara vs. Nepthu

    Huntara vs Kittrina

    Huntara vs. Game Master

    Huntara vs. King Tamusk

    Huntara vs. Sibyline

    All of them were one time characters one from Pop one from Motu fair chance for everyone if you ask me.

    And as a sidenote Huntara would need more new tooling than Masque...
    *Peekablue *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    I'd vote for Huntara, but they both should be made & based on popularity, I'd say they both deserve a figure before Nepthu (not that I'd turn down a Nepthu figure either actually).

    First of all, for those who haven't already done so, just YouTube "Huntara" - it is one of the best written and best animated of the She-Ra episodes. I really feel like even the most anti-She-Ra fans will admit that Huntara is pretty amazing.

    And likewise, if you haven't seen the He-Man episode "House of Shokoti, Part 1," then you should, as you'll get to know Masque.

    the voting room will be full of motu and pop fans. The pop fans, being female will most likely vote for the female character.... but MOTU fans outnumber them.... but MOTU fans bring their girlfriends, who arent necessarily fans of either.... yet because they are physically there, they get to sway a toy line they know little about ... and being female also, they will vote for the female character. This outnumbers the votes of people (males generally speaking) who collect the line, and thus huntara will win.... she shouldnt, but she will.

    Also, just a note, I do like huntara, but masque is clearly the more story driven, more deserving character.
    I am going to wager that You've never seen the Huntara episode. Saying that Masque is more story-driven actually makes no sense.

    Ironically both stories were written by the same man. Larry Ditillio.

    Please, do yourself a favor and YouTube it. It takes 20 minutes, and I guarantee you'll like it.

    And your explanation for why Huntara will win is really rather far fetched. It's also kind of narrow-minded.

    Not every female fan likes pop.

    Not every male fan hates pop.

    Not every fan of pop is female... In fact I would bet that there are more MALE fans of pop than female just because it has always seemed that, unfortunately, men outnumber women in the fandom for these properties.

    There are plenty of straight male fans in this thread alone who have posted that they would vote for Huntara.

    I hope you were just being sarcastic.

    Now...

    One of the many rumors that has been flying around is that Masque was already on the way.

    Unless this vote is done EXACTLY like Granamyr's last year, with clear bins filled with tickets (one bin for each option), and the bins placed in the booth display case, I'm going to call shenanigans whatever the outcome. And we are following those bins from the panel to the floor. No ballot box stuffing

    Huntara is a character that I thought would sway Scott and several others who seem to dislike anything associated with She-Ra. I assume the dislike on Scott's part based on the imbalance in the motuc line.

    But unless people watch the episode, they won't see how cool she is.

    I would bet my collection that if the main characters of the Huntara episode were Huntara and He-Man, she would be more demanded than Shokoti.


    Look at the Filmation sub.

    Both Huntara and Masque should have been in that sub. Instead, we are probably getting Nepthu (unless Scott puts him in the main sub) and/or Plundor.

    Why? Huntara AND Masque have always been in the top ten when people vote in polls for most-wanted Filmation characters (well, Huntara has always been; Masque only sometimes).

    Nepthu has never cracked the top 40. Plundor has not fared much better (though he certainly had more support than Nepthu).

    Ironically, Scott would be lionized as the icon he wishes he were IF he actually listened to the customer base and produced what it wants.

    No one wanted a Huntara vs. Masque vote! We wanted BOTH figures.

    I just don't understand why we can't get through even a quarter without a misstep

    Top 15-20 would be faring much better my friend! Higher than Huntara....probably not but still let's not downplay the Plundor love. That being said, I think you are pretty spot on about Huntara being a character that could sway PoP detractors. She's an awesome character....probably one of my biggest Filmation PoP wants....well after Madame Razz and Broom, and Imp, and Scorpia, and Vultak.....and Dylamug...... I hope she wins the vote. She'd get mine!

    While Masque is necessary because we're getting Shokoti, I'd rather get Huntara.
    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

    The results of this poll and in other ones show both of these characters to be consistently at the top of Filmation wants, and virtually dead even with each other all the time. That's more than enough proof to Mattel that they're essential! If there's another Filmation sub next year, they both need to be fast tracked to be in it!

    masque, if only because we already are getting shakoti, and you gotta have both.

    Though admittedly had they not made Shakoti, I may not have voted that way.

    I hope Huntara gets a bigger reaction next week. Masque is a bigger shoe in for later release.

    You're wrong.

    Slave2EvilLyn, I, and a few others stood outside the room watching who voted. Most WOMEN voted for masque.

    Guys voted for Huntara. Quite deliberately.

    And we encouraged people to do so.

    Frankly, I felt great seeing her win.
