Skeletor's Hover Robots
Subscriptions aside, out of all the Classics figures revealed during SDCC this year, which toys are you happy with as being a part of the Classics line? Those you do not select can be toys you don't want to purchase, or toys you feel should have been replaced with other figures.
* I really want to like Ninjor, and I'm hoping he will look better in hand. He doesn't look quite close enough to the vintage toy, and the fact that he does not get a real chain for his nunchuck is a big bummer.
* Eldor is growing on me. Not a fan of the extra detail, especially in his hood, which seems to perch precariously over his shoulders.
* Skeletor's Hover Robots are my absolute favorite! Perfect sculpt, and I'm very excited for the stickers they're being fitted with! Classics wouldn't be the same without them.
* Sweet Bee is one of my favorite reveals because the sculptors did a fantastic job capturing that cartoony Filmaiton look I can't get enough of. The colors really pop!
* Oo-Larr I'm pretty excited about, since he could be considered a flagship figure for the mini comic side of Classics, a roster that is sorely in need of being fleshed out.
* Battle Armor He-Man I like, except for that head sculpt. No interest in Battle Armor King Hsss.
* Lizard Man I was never a fan of personally. Great sculpt, love me some Filmation. I'm sure he'll grow on me.
* Gwildor's crazy head sculpt is going to take some time to get used it. No need for two Cosmic Keys. Wishing for a closed key sculpt.
* Battle Ram...finally! Very surprised we're not hearing more excitement over it. Probably because of the price-tag and the unnecessary MAA figure and snake head sculpted Sky Sled.

2. Lizard Man
1. King Hiss
Satma needs to happen. I will mow your lawn for life, Scott.
I'm actually happy with all of them except for Arrow and Man at Arms.
Stridor should have taken Arrow's spot and I would have been happy with any other figure with the battle ram than another variant

Everything but Gwildor, Snake Armor He-Man and Battle Armor King Hsss!
AUDACIEUX ET TENACE
Everything except arrow, maa & hover bots
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.
Most things really! Eldor, Gwildor and MAA weren't necessary for me...
Also, Mermista fell SO short of what I expected. Her torso is so freaking odd.
Pretty much everything but Oolar, a figure I'd hoped was cut from the roadmap. Oh well. Everyone else seems to like him enough.
My SDCC Top 5 (and also the only items I want from the list):
2. Battle Ram
3. Tung Lashor
MOTUC Most Wanted : Attak Trak, Stridor, Night Stalker, Masks of Power Demons,
Alcala-Style-Figures, Point Dread & Talon Fighter
Extremely happy with:
Sweet Bee - She looks great. Love the Filmation influence.
Battle Ram - BOUT DAMN TIME! lol
Tung Lashor - Bad ass! Probably my favorite of the Snake Men.
Mermista - Lovely! Amazing mermaid tail sculpt. Love that pearlescent sheen to her scales.
Spinnerella - She looks amazing as well. Very pleased with almost all the PoP figures to date.
Gwildor - Killer sculpt! Glad they added a movie accessory staff, but would have preferred the bucket o ribs. lol
Lizard Man - Nice figure and AMAZING accessories.
Ninjor - Was VERY looking forward to him and they killed it!
Huntara - She is a bad ass PoP figure! Love her colors and weapons.
Skeletor's Hover Robots - A necessary "Army Builder", but why a con exclusive?!
Cool with the rest of the stuff, but I'm not as pumped as the things mentioned above:
Eldor - Understand his importance, but was never really excited for him. He looks like a bum with a bible.
Oo-Larr - Nekkid He-Man, meh. The extra head almost makes up for it though.
Arrow - Unexpected and kinda cool, just not really mandatory imo.
NA She-Ra - She's alright. I think I would've preferred her in gold to match the NA He-Man that I don't like at all.
Snake Armor He-Man - Another He-Man variant, never really cared for this one though. Looks alright.
Battle Armor King Hssss - Looks damn cool, but I'm stuck in the past on the originals. The snakes are way better though!
Man-At-Arms - unnecessary Man-At-Arms but acceptable. I think I would have preferred a gunmetal/black movie-style MAA as the next MAA figure if there was to be one.
Im happy with at of the reveals but my top 5 favorites in order of preferences:
1- Battle Armor King Hsss (I was really hoping for a new 200x King Hisss)
2- Snake Armor He-Man (Now we need an Ice Armor He Man)
3- NA She-Ra (Not a big NA fan but I really wanted to see this figure)
4- Skeletor's Hover Robots (I love armies and Skeletor needs one ASAP)
5- Tung Lashor (This figure is awesomeeeeesee!!!!! and my snakes needs more figures)
6- Oo-larr (2 big reasons to like this figure... 1- The vintage He Mans head, 2- I want to display him with my Goddess figure)
7- Battle Ram (Im not really into vehicles but this is an awesome addition to my collection)

2 HIGH PRIESTESS 3 EMPRESS SHE-MAN MASTERS
He-Man Masters of the Universe Classics Princess of Power She-Ra Bow
I wish I could have voted twice for Oo-Lar!
SA He-Man, 200x Hssss, Ninjor, Lizard Man (finally!), Battle Ram!
I like the POP figures a lot and think they all look great, but they're not necessary for me. Mermista, however, is super, super tempting. I have a suspicion she will be mine one day.
Really, the only meh items for me were Arrow and the Hover-Bots.
Orko: It's like the Sorceress said: sometimes, the ones who seem the worst, need our help the most.
He-Man: You're learning.
Loked it all apart from NA She Ra. I like NA, just hate all the new crap they keep wedging in the line. Especially when every slot is needed.
I don't want to buy Arrow, NA She-Ra, Gwildor, Lizard-Man, Snake Armor He-Man and Man-At-Arms.

I was pretty happy with everything. I'm easy to please lol. I was disappointed that they used Oo-Larr as the exclusive... That had been rumored for a while, and I think he would have been better with the Battle Ram. The MAA that comes with the Battle Ram is a waste, in my opinion .
My favorites were:
4) NA She-Ra
2) Sweet Bee
A Want List of Sorts: Saurod, Buzz-Saw Hordak, Dragstor, Perfuma, Dare, Snake Mountain, Prahvus, Veena, King Chuboolu, Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.
I agree with BCRDuke. Oo-Larr should have come with the Battle Ram instead of that MAA variant.
I find it funny that Toyguru says they didn't want to use slots on another Catra variant, but Man-At-Arms will get one, with is not that far off from the original figure. That 200X inspired head could have come in the head Pak scheduled for 2015.
If Lizard Man was the sub exclusive, I think that would have been better. Or, have the Hover Robots as the exclusive. People want to army build those, they'd be more inclined to buy a sub to get them. Or, have Starburst She-Ra in the PoP add-on sub and NA She-Ra as the 2015 exclusive.
Then Lodar could have been the Traveling Exclusive.
I also think Arrow should have been Stridor.

I like them all. All these characters/accessories need to be made eventually, and since were in the twilight/gravy phase of the line I don't care what order they come out in.
Another green/orange MAA is weird, Filmation deco or not. His helmetless head was definitely needed, but will we ever see a silver or gray armored MAA? I guess it's best he doesn't come in an expensive vehicle pack if we do...
I was happy with everything excepting Arrow. He was realized very well, and cleverly. I however had no interest in Arrow, though I did expect him years ago if only to reuse the Horse Sculpt. This late in the game though I admit I was disappointed though not surprised at his inclusion.
Once in hand I will probably sculpt a Horn for him in the visage of Teela's Charger and give him to Battle Ground Teela. That will be pretty cool.
I loved everything else, though Man at Arms thrilled me the most, with OoLarr being a pleasant surprise.
