    If a Filmation Line took over Classics

    If it was announced for 2016 Mattel is making a Filmation only line, meaning starting from scratch, a Filmation Ram Man, Clawful, Whiplash etc and all characters to varied scales, would you sub in?

    I'd love to switch gears to nothing but filmation variants of previously released characters like he man, teela, evil lyn, clawful etc and new never been done figures like vultak , hunga, Dylamug, general sunder etc. but I want them in the same classics style and same buck reuse. I wouldn't want a changed style. I honestly think the filmation look has been successfully achieved in motuc aesthetic. Just look at Seahawk icer scorpia octavia shokoti razz broom lookee kowl glimmer adora she ra Marlena eternos randor etc. just continue that. The look the paint deco the head sculpts look just like they stepped out of the cartoon. Just avoid huge misses like filmation Hordak and frosta

    I'd rather get more Filmation characters for classics. There are still lots of important characters who have yet to show up.
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    An all Filmation line? No PoP or NA or 200x figures included? Hmmm....

    A Filmation line makes a lot of sense. This is the He-Man that most people know, there are many characters that have very specific looks to Filmation and it's a chance to "start" over, but still release A-List characters.

    He-Man
    Man at Arms
    Teela
    Beastman
    Merman
    Hordak
    Skeletor
    Leech
    Grizzlor
    Trapjaw
    Tung Lashor
    Clawful
    Hover Robot
    Sorceress
    Evil Seed
    Lord Masque
    Lizard Man
    Vultak
    etc, etc...

    Adult Collector, that is a good point, there will be a lot of upset people that will be mad that NA and 200x are not continuing since they were not Filmation cartoons, so they would not be in this line, and I'm okay with that. But POP would, and it should, there are a lot of POP characters I still want to see. Like Hunga the Harpy, Sunder, Huntara, Dylamug, Sticky Fingers etc. But a lot more MotU that I want to see as well. I invested too much in the classics line to see it end, so making these characters using the same parts would great.

    But there is also potential in starting over with a smaller scale line, like GI Joe. Cheaper figures, potential for accurate scaled accessories, dioramas vehicles and playsets. Dioramas like a new King and Queen with thrones they can sit on. Duncan and Tri-Klops workshops, Skeletor or Hordak's Throne rooms. And all the mistakes they learned from classics would be fixed as well. Wind Raider that can seat 4, The Collector, Horde Slave Transport. And did I mention cheaper figures.

    this would be a big no for me...not a fan of the cartoon..plus ive got most of the guys i want.. no desire for toon looking variants...
    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a DARKSIDE.

    OK, so I'm not clear exactly what you're proposing.

    Do you mean a line done in the same MOTUC scale & style, but containing ONLY filmation characters and versions of characters, or do you mean a line done in REDUCED detail like some uber-Filmation fanatics have been demanding?
    MOTUC most wanted: Skelcons, Satma, Lord Masque, Vultak, Great Black Wizard, Slime Pit Bone Warrior, Horde Wraith, Red Knight, Beast Lord, Illumina, Catra Cat Form, Evil Seed 200X, Old Man Marzo 200X, Prahvus, King Miro, Hunga the Harpy, Skeletor's Robot Knights, Lady Slither, Lady Valtira

    Yes, but depending on the price. If they were in scale with MotUC, I'd sell off all the figures that were based on the vintage toys and replace them with the Filmation versions.

    I am asking if a Filmation line were to replace the classics line, would you sub in. But I know people have "if's"
    1. "Yes" meaning I'm in no matter what
    2. "No" means I don't care to start again or I don't care for Filmation
    3. Yes if in Classics parts, meaning you don't mind keeping the price the way it is as long as the line continues as you have invested years already and want to see this all the way through as the ultimate complete line, and don't mind receiving remakes of He-man and Skeletor Filmation style or maybe a Filmation heads pack every year for your existing Classics.
    4. Only if it's smaller and cheaper meaning, you are ready to start again and end Classics and do the line right at a smaller scale which would make it easier to create additional props, dioramas vehicles and beast Filmation accurate. Where a Castle Grayskull for a GI Joe sized He-man could cost $100 while $30 for The Collector or Horde Slave Transport. And maybe have action features.

    though I voted "Only if it was Classics Scale & parts ect" what I really mean is "I really dont want an all filmation sub retreading all the characters, ect but if they did it like an extension of Classics I would feel bound to sub. So I kinda do not want a filmation sub.

    Filmation characters for Classics-Yes.

    A totally new Filmation line with Filmation variants of stuff Classics did better- No.
    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

    If Failmation Hordak is anything to go by, they would probably all come with the regular classics heads anyway.

    Ha! That is the point of a Filmation only line, no Classics heads, I would prefer they gave Filmation head packs for existing Classics figures. But knowing Mattel if they can get us to buy another He-man you already own with the only difference being the head, then I'm sure that is what they will do. But that is not a bad thing now that I think about it, as some characters need more than just a head change, buying another Skeletor, Filmation style means an accurate Filmation Havoc Staff and bone sword as well. An Accurate Filmation She-ra Sword that is identical to He-man's except the jewel, and maybe Sword transformations could be included, Sword to Shield, Sword to Rope etc. And of course an accurate Hordak as we all know the skin color and head is not the only change needed. Ram Man would be shorter etc.

    It's a tough call, getting Filmation accurate characters means less detail, which has got to cost less, but the other side is the Classics line is already Filmation heavy, so it would feel like a smooth transition. They will continue using the Classics bucks along with some new tooled ones, like Ram Man, I feel it would go well. The line will include majority never before done Filmation characters since very few Classic figures need complete rehauls. All the stuff I mentioned for Skeletor and She-ra could be in a Filmation Weapon's pack, so no need to redo Skeletor, just put him in a heads pack and wala.

    This. I'm happy with what I got already.

    If it's a style that is dramatically different than the Classic version like Tung of Clawful then fine but I don't need a Filmation Skeletor or He-Man.

    I'd buy almost all of these. Honestly many of these characters appeal to me more than what is left in Classics like Manwithwheelinchest, Robot-Modulok, and Duck-feet Ninja Warrior.

    I'm not interested in MOTU at a different scale PERIOD. Oh, I might pick up one or two for kicks, but I'm not starting another large collection. If Matty wants to keep selling me He-Man figures, they need to keep the size in line with what I've already got.

    That said, I would very much enjoy a year or two of the line focusing on Filmation.
    Top want list: Evil Seed, Snake Mountain Man, Mask of Power Demons, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Mini-Comics Beast-Man, 200x Beast-Man, Teela 2.0, Battle-Ram, Snake Mountain, & a hardcover collection of all the mini-comics.
