Will there be any Princess of Power 30 Year Anniversary Figures. If so, which ones will Mattel make.
Will Mattel base their decision as to the 30 Year Anniverasy Figures for Masters of the Universe. Maybe also a figure contest, fan vote and a Mattel PoP Figure?
What do you guys think?

Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
I think it's possible that we'll see:
- Barbie as "She-Ra: Princess of Power"; and
- Toy-design She-Ra vs. Toy-design Catra in a special two-pack (since the toy variants have otherwise been excluded from Toyguru's promise to release all vintage PoP by the end of 2015).
But, unfortunately, it seems unlikely that we'll see a PoP mini-sub. And I'm not sure we'd see much more than the above possibilities.
It would be nice to see at least one concept PoP character and my preference would be for the protoype She-Ra (generally referred to as He-Ra) with the black bikini. Both of He-Man's prototypes/original concepts (Vikor and Vykron) have been released and it would be cool to see She-Ra's prototype/original concept also released.
I think it's possible we'll see an add on sub of POP figures, like last year's Filmation sub. I had forgotten that this is the 30th for She-Ra (feeling old again), and it seems it would be the perfect way for Mattel to commemorate it. I doubt we'll see much outside that, as we saw relatively little for the Masters 30th outside the add on sub, but I'd settle for filling out the Etherian ranks a little faster with six extra figures.

It would be good if the POP fans have something to mark the occasion. The thing with the MOTU thirtieth, though, was it didn't really represent MOTU. It was just half a dozen new figures. A POP batch might be equally unrepresentative.
Although I really liked a couple of the MOTU thirtieth figures, I still think special editions of known characters or early minicomic characters would have been a far better way to mark the anniversary.
If a POP thirtieth is on the cards, I hope for the POP fans it does better justice to their faction than the MOTU one did.

Seriously doubt there will be anything on the PoP front. PoP is sort of the stepchild of MOTU. Honestly that Mattel even chose to include it is nothing short of a miracle. Im content with the representation we already receive.
Maybe in the least, they can put Swift Wind back into production and sell him and a version of She-ra in a discounted gift set, like they did for He-Man and Battle-Cat on what was considered the actual 30th anniversary day.
I think they're going to unofficially count this year as the celebratory year, probably starting in about 10 days.
A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.
They should give out commemorative tiaras at SDCC or at least party hats. And a cake boss cake of course!
Let the celebration begin!

I don't know if there'll be a POP anniversary figure, yet I hope we get to see the remaining POP vintage figures and a few Filmation guys (Vultak, Twiggets, Granita, Hunga, Sunder for example) in the next two years.

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

I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing things like this. Nostalgia overload. What wouldn't I give to be able to go back to the early - mid 80's for just one day, and do nothing but spend the entire day in my old Toys R Us. *sigh* I really hope they do SOMETHING commemorative. PoP deserves it.

Come on Matty! Show me DRAGSTOR!!!
Does that mean a POP 30th Anniversary add-on sub will be announced at NY Toyfair?
Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!
Maybe as a SDCC exclusive and could be Starburst She ra???
I'm FINN The human... Watch me laughing
I think the celebration will be the announcement of a Pop mini-sub. It's really the only way I can see us completing Pop vintage. Some Pop inspired Monster High dolls would be awesome, but that will never happen.
If there is a PoP mini sub do you think it'll be all GR members or will the Horde increase its numbers as well. I think an exclusive Dylamug or Filmation Hordak with Imp may entice a few more subs than the likes of Perfuma....don't ya think?
