    Both rumored lineups I like, but I hope we at least get to see Hydron, Modulok, and Strong Arm revealed at the con

    Its kind of funny though, when you start leaving your "hints", that it causes such panicked reactions from a certain brand manager. I wonder how many times they have altered release schedules in reaction to your hints?
    Ok.
    I'll just be totally quiet then

    I doubt it has affected much. Maybe once or twice.

    I'd be lying if I said I hadn't secretly hoped that Nepthu was a false rumor.

    If this is true I'm really excited for:

    Plundor
    Modulok
    Glimmer
    Strongarm
    Lord Dactys
    Kowl and Lookee
    Horde Troopers

    The rest are meh to me. Even Two-Bad doesn't excite me and I had him as a kid. Didn't like him that much then either.

    Boy if this is even close to accurrate, I'll regret subscribing. Out of ALL Filmation, Plundor and Nepthu!?

    And that list for monthlies would be very anti-climatic. Where's Scorpia? Where's Madame Razz?

    I don't care for any list that doesn't include a Battle Ram pre-order.

    That being said, hooray for
    - Glimmer
    -Lord Dactys
    - Two-Bad
    - Horde trooper 2-pack
    and bah to the rest. I might like Sea Hawk and Hydron if done really well, and while I love the Horde I'm for some reason not all that excited about Modulok.

    As for that other list, I'm sick of any 2 pack that isn't Horde Troopers or Hover Robots; I was ok with the Palace Guards since I saw that as them wanting to test the army builder waters, but the snake men set just annoyed me. As for the traveling exclusive, I think Goat Man is a terrible idea, as was Strobo. TOD Sorceress was great cuz I see that slot as an amazing way to get some brand recognition at smaller shows, so it should be a character the casual fan will recognize, like green Trap Jaw or 200X Evil-Lyn, not SUPER obscure characters.

    We were going to get Two-Bad, but then bcrduke dropped a hint about Two Bad and Scott chucked the sculpted proto out the Horsemen's window. Well, so they say.

    Never heard of Nepthu til these supposed leaks. No interest initially, but I've grown to like the idea of him as a figure the Horsemen will knock out of the park if he's really coming.

    I do think revealing Hydron as a Q1 lure figure could be a mistake. Sure he's important to NA but many fans still haven't taken the faction to their hearts. Flogg would be less of a risk because he's a villain...

    I'd throw in Lizard Man as his replacement - he's highly demanded and a Filmation character...obviously he's an original sculpt but it seems to me a no-brainer...

    At this point in the line if we don't get nepthu and plundor now, we may never get them so I am kinda rooting for them to get made now!

    I totally agree!! I am a NA fan, but I would be dead against having any NA character as a sub lure shown at SDCC. You can bet that IF the sub fails to hit the minimum and we get the same hysteria as last year, some people will be saying they didn't sub because of Hydron - it will be a similar situation as FFM last year.

    I would keep the reveals as vintage MOTU heavy as possible.

    Characters like Tung Lashor, Dragstor, Modulok, Two Bad, Oo-Larr, S-S-Sssqueeze, Rio and even Blade would be good lures for the year - throw in visually appealing POP characters like Scorpia and Mermista (keep Glimmer for the middle of the year as she is a bland design) and you will get more subs.

    While he's not one of my desired Filmation guys, I'd honestly prefer Negator to him....I do believe that the 4H would make him look good, same with Nepthu....I like the Egyptian motif, and while his Filmation model was a little bare looking, there is so much that can be done with Egyptian dress as far as adding detail....plus I do like the Ankh.

    I guess we'll see in a little over a week....damn just saying that I realized how close it is....!!! SDCC! Can't wait....MOTUC, finally new Classics / Generations Transformers!....Hell yeah.

    NA leaves a bad taste in my mouth....but I've no doubt one of the damn reveals will be one....I am stuck with Karatti and NAHM, can't sell them, and I refuse to take a loss....my son will have 2 new figures before that happens, or used for customs.... But I don't want to buy figures I don't want. Thankfully so far it's only 3 figures I don't want....Geldor included.

    I agree, Vintage and POP would draw people in the most....NA is a niche line within Classics, and should be reserved for an E-Mail reveal or something in a month or two. The figures at SDCC will be what either makes 2014 shine, or hammers the final nails in.... Scott had better have his A game and his very best figures ready, not ones someone could care less about. I think 2013 would have faired better had Mantenna been one of the SDCC reveals....but who knows.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

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

    I hope TG sees this. They need to be as cautious as popular. The NA characters (heroes especially) divide the community, even now.

    Hydron would be a 'big news' reveal for any other con - but not SDCC.

    If they want to ensure subs meet the quota, they need to show Scorpia. She has been demanded for years, right up there with guys like Rammy. Scorpia to make this year go, Razz for next year.

    The one figure I have doubts about in the rumored list is Lord Dactys. I know he's been mentioned a lot, but he would require a lot of tooling to do right, and I don't know if they are going to put those resources into a 2002 figure with so many vintage MOTU characters who need those resources.

    I keep klicking into this thread to read bcrduke say "You forgot Dragstor in that list". Damn whishful thinking.

    I agree, NA wouldn't be a good lure into the sub. Mattel has to show pure heavy hitters for motivating people getting the sub.

I'm very curious to see what they look like, should they appear at all... I'm sure that nothing would please Mattel more than to pull them and replace them so they can say, "See? All those rumors were bunk!"



    SHHHHH!!!!!

    Kidding aside... It's not my info.. it's info gathered from people who, I believe, want it passed on... I don't think it's a mistake that I end up hearing a lot of this info...

    Blast. Foiled again!



    I didn't mean to make it sound like I was accusing you of that... I should have worded it differently. It just reminded me of the last few years when things I had passed on were suddenly swirling around, and members who'd received the info 3rd or 4th hand posted it lol.. but it would have been better had it remained private (which is why I hadn't posted it in the first place).

    Sticking to PMs is better... Public messages are fine if you know how to display a rumor without being super obvious
    well for the record, I do appreciate all the info you relayed here, whether I liked or disliked a certain figure, it makes for great conversation.

    Regarding the nearly always accurate prognostications of bcrduke, I've decided that Mattel must want the info he imparts to be out there. As we've been told repeatedly, MOTUC is a very small line, and there really can't be all that many people working on it. If Mattel didn't want these hints out there, it would seem that they would be able to figure out bcrduke's sources with some bogus info pretty easily and plug those leaks. Heck, I kinda think that bcr's source is Mr. Neitlich himself.

    Anyway, regardless of how it gets out there, I'm just glad it does. All these tidbits create buzz and keep the boards hopping, if not always happy.
