This has now been officially confirmed. First up is the Filmation Power Sword:

One of the things Scott let slip towards the end, which is supposed to be officially announced soon, that they are pushing more accessories into the 2014 figures. It sounds like it'll be similar to some of the stuff they did with the FILMation sub figures, where if a figure has one or two accessories, it could have a second or third accessory that is a cool bonus that might not necessarily go exactly with that figure!
So, we could see more cool one-off accessories like the Diamond Ray of Disappearance, or something that might contemplate a past figure!
That is awesome! Anything that adds value can't hurt at all
Also...get her into the line!

Why would he not reveal this?
I think he did also say that this new info would be revealed on mattycollector in a few days.
Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!
One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

Cool, I'll take more accessories....this is how they are dealing with the no more Weapons Pack thing....good to know, I like the idea. Maybe there is still hope to getting a Filmation Power Sword.
Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
It seems like a selling point, why not announce it with longer than a few days left? It's good news for sure, but seems like a missed opportunity to increase the excitement.
There are so many things I want! I bet Dylamug would be a great place to incorporate the new items.
NO DYLAMUG? WE DIAL A MOB!
The Space Mutants are missing something CRITAcal!

Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Sssqueeze, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Odiphus, Illumina w/ Sleetah
Can the rear part of the Battle-Ram be an accessory too, please?

My guess is that Scott is hoping to shove these things in but can't be sure. I am surprised Batros only has one accessory, I guess the Filmation sub was stretching allocated budget and tooling to the limit across the whole six figures.
**Scott please make me a Staghorn**
If they have a piece of information NOW, about the sub that would make it more appealing in any way and are not revealing it NOW, it's a botch. Plain and simple.
Jon, I would agree with you 100% if we had already made the
minimum. We haven't. And since they aren't revealing the sub exclusive for 2014 for some reason, more info than "you already know who we have to pick from aside from these four figures" would be helpful.
Lots of good accessories coming in 2014 such as this
We’ve already revealed that in 2014 Goat Man™ is arriving with Stratos’ Staff of Avion, and as we get ready to gear up for some serious accessory action in 2014, we’ve got another special sneak peek at a long-awaited accessory that’s coming next year!
As you know, the 2014 lineup will not only contain figures you’ve been waiting for, it’s also going to have some of the most-wanted accessories that fans are demanding. While we can’t reveal which figure will come with this particular sword, we can say that it will be included somewhere in the 2014 lineup. And we can also tell you the figure it comes with will not necessarily be connected to this sword. We’re doing this because we really want to make sure that over the next two years we give you the awesome accessories you’ve been demanding at the same time we give you the figures that will wrap up your Classics collection.
