This 2pk isn't taking up a monthly slot and unlike Terror Claws Skeletor, Flying Fist He-Man, or Buzz-Saw Hordak who are 95% similar to their original releases, these MYP variants are very different from their original releases.
"Evilseed with his MYP redesign dominated the poll pulling ahead with a massive lead."
Also a bit surprised about the torso not being included; they could have simply increased the price for that item; there's no law or rule determining the price point of any of the figures as long as the prices are listed up front (hellooo Spinerella). I understand that the way the line works and the way the bean counters apparently work, there has to e a spreading of resources, and a single figure showing a break even or loss would cause great wailing and gnashing of teeth among the high poobahs, even if it more than evened out over the whole year, but I really think that this should have been included. Pushing it to later in the year, methinks, increases chances it will be cost cut (the trimming and shaving seems to increase as the year goes on). I'd be very surprised to see the bendy parts idea survive.
On the plus side, they did a real good job on the figures themselves. THe re-use on Hiss is hidden well by the new parts, and SA He-Man has a bunch of new parts, so I can see there's already a lot of tooling costs for these figures, especially for variants.

I think they look really good! I admit was surprised to see them show up though, but they are actually some of the ones I'm most excited about.
Though for some reason the Snake Armor He-man's head (or face rather) looks like Evan Peters from American Horror Story.
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!

Everyone loves the New King Hiss and wants that new awesome highly detailed snake form so by mattel incuding it with another figure later in the 2015 year it prevents people from pulling a shadow waver sleazy move, and at this point we have no Idea if the figure it will be coming with will have day of sale or not.
Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

Just finished watching Rise of the Snakemen, I'm pumped for this two-pack in 2015. Please Subscribe!
I've always loved the 200X version of King Hiss, loved the egyptian look! S/A He-Man is definatly an awesome variant. Very cool two pack!!!

Another poster brought this up earlier, but I didn't hear anything more about it: does Scott know the prototype had the extra shoulder armor on the wrong shoulder? He-man's upper left arm is suppose to be completely bare. Did it change over the weekend or did he comment on it?
But yeah, it's on correctly in the pictures from the panel. It was just put together wrong in the showcase.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
I'm looking forward to this 2 pack and buying 2. I plan on displaying Hiss in both forms plus taking the head of SA He Man on the second set and putting it on the 2nd King Grayskull I made into a 200x He Man. Then taking the King Grayskull head from that figure and putting on SA body for SA King Grayskull for the beginning of The Power of Grayskull episode.
Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
This was the biggest surprise for me from sdcc! I love it! I have to get an extra set to swap the he-man head out on a king grayskull body to make a 200x he-man. And I have to get the king hssss legs for the snake torso later on. Such a great pack and idea on matty's part!
I wonder if the 4H sculpted a shield for He-Man? If so I good it finds its way into the line. If not it's not a huge deal because he is impressive regardless. It will be interesting to see where this incarnation of He-Man fits into the bios, before or after the SUB.
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.

So far this the top item I must have from the 2015 sub, the only other item that could possibly surpass it would be a Stridor. Im so glad I subscribed this year.
(sigh)..... now we just have to hope evil mike makes a SA he-man shield for us to complete the figure. i just got my filmation hordak head from kevin kosse. is anyone else tired of having to buy stuff separately that should have came with the figures in the first place or is it just me? and yes... great sculpts.
