    Did you want Battle Lion in the 2014 sub?

    So I've made my disapointment that Battle Lion is a 2014 sub item clear. But what about other subscribers? How fan demanded is he?

    Did you want him in the 2014 sub? If you were considering/are subbing when the subs re-open feel free to vote too!
    8 figures I still need: 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Filmation Tung Lashor, 6/Saurod, 5/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 4/Peekablue, 3/Hunga the Harpy, 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    Biggest disappointment of the 2014 sub for me and though I'm not a big fan of Glimmer or Hydron's character designs, at least I don't mind having them in my collection. But then again, I feel I have enough cats already with Battle Cat and Panthor. I don't feel I need Battle Cat's Preternia clone all that much. That's the one thing I always found boring about MYP, they basically took 4 good characters, cloned them and gave us inferior copies of the originals. I'm just not that big into the MYP retreads.

    And although I find Evil Seed's 200x design vastly bland and boring, I would have preferred him over Battle Lion.

    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!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    I wouldn't say that I wanted him, but I'm not disappointed he's coming. The sculpt looks great, and it seems to be making the NA fans happy (and really that's who this is for), so that's a win win. As a side note, I would be disappointed if Madame Razz was revealed for the 2014 Sub, as I don't want to spend any amount of money on that hot junk of garbage.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    Yes. I was waiting to get him since 2010's Battle Cat came out. I have two...one to put on Battle Lion's armor to make a 200X Battle Cat.

    So that will be TWO Battle Lions coming to my house in May 2014. King Grayskull and 200X He-Man need their steeds!

    Sure, so far I've liked the beast mounts.
    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.

    I am disappointed, I would have rather spent my money on Stridor or another vintage POP horse. That said....he does look alright, I just don't like the front claw armor. But I would have preferred him non sub, but since he's coming....I need to get King Grayskull now for sure.
    Recent....Eldor
    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Wanted....
    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!

    Probably one of my favourite reveals of the year, right up there with Modulok. A big surprise and a work of art at the same time. Pure win.
    The only downside, like with all power-con reveals, is that he's so far away.

    btw I love how these threads pop up after every reveal, as if they're going to impact the fact that a figure is being released.

    I'm glad he's on the way. The PoG section of MOTUC has always looked the most dismal. Hopefully we'll get even more characters to liven it up soon. Eldor or Veena, anyone?

    This is very frustrating, yet again, we are forced to buy something many don't agree with.

    We are getting battle lion not because it is essential, core or highly demanded, but because this is such a cheap piece to make and it will cost us buyers more than a regular figure!

    I can only hope this will have no DOS so that re-sale will be possible without loss.

    Didn't know I wanted him until he showed up. I think he's awesome and has a place on my shelf.

    well, after i saw the cartoon, i wanted him. but i wanted him to be giant like in the cartoon. it dont bother me if he's in the sub, sure i'd rather get a stridor and night stalker, as they would double up thier money with that from fans off one mold.. but battle lion is cool with me..

    Some fans need to know if they are not alone in their dislike.

    I keep on cracking up over the whole "few want him" line. Fans have BEEN asking for a Battle Lion ever since Battle Cat was made. The only beasts more popular are Sagitar, Stridor/Nightstalker and maybe Mantisaur.

    I want him more than another POP horse or gorilla body re-use. I do hope the BC armor fits him because I prefer the more organic looking armor.

    That said, I would have preferred Teela's gold unicorn but I know the lion will appeal to more fans.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't surprised to see Battle Lion revealed.

    With the limited number of slots left before the end of 2015, he wouldn't have been in my list of must-haves.
    That said, I've nothing against him and I'm very happy to add him to my collection.
    I've never been disappointed in the character selection in this line, and have no reason to doubt that we'll see Stridor and Nightstalker in the next two years.

    Battle Cat is still available on Matty, so depending on the way in which the armour works I can see me getting an extra one to create a 200X Battle Cat design.

    I didn't know I wanted him until this morning when I saw he was coming. Now, I'm thoroughly excited.

    I like the result so far.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I think that he wasn't people's first choice and they were disappointed that Stridor wasn't announced, but that didn't translate to automatic hatred as some fans would believe.
