    Super7 -Vintage-style 5"" MOTU figures (NYTF 2018 Predictions!)

    Hi there,

    Besides He-Ro, Eldor, and the Filmation style versions of He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak, and She-Ra, do you think Super7 will show off any new vintage-style figures at NYTF 2018?

    If they do, I predict we will see the following new figures...

    Strobo
    Fearless Photog
    Lodar
    Geldor

    Who do you think they might show?

    My guess is that if they are trying to get these out at retail, then they are not going to be going the obscure character route.

    I will guess a Filmation versions of Man-at-Arms with armor on both arms/shins and a mustache head, Beast Man, Shadow Weaver, and Bow.....to even out the MOTU/POP ratio of that last wave.

    I know He-Ro/Eldor point to their willingness to get some more obscure characters out there, so we'll see, but I can't see Geldor and Lodar sitting in retail stores and the mass market eating those up. I'd say He-Ro and Eldor are even a gamble, and maybe should be saved for just online sales, and leave the retail line to Filmation versions of known characters.

    Now that they can, there finally needs to be a Karg to go alongside Blade and Saurod.
    MOTUC Wishlist: Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Andros, Monstroid, the new villains from He-Ro/Dare

    Nice call on the Man-at-Arms and Beastman.
    Coming straight out of Preternia, tribal chieftess and the original WARRIOR GODDESS, SHARELLLA!!!

    Sharella needs her day in Classics. She is the only remaining vintage POG character that needs a figure.

    My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Sharella, Hunga the Harpy, Sagitar, Snake Goddess & Red Beast

    The obvious ones for wave 2 would be formation versions of Man At Arms, mer man, clawful and the Sorceress.

    Some guys I’d love to see:

    Faker
    Teela
    Orko
    Bow
    Photog
    Castle Grayskullman

    And, as I’ve said many times before, I hope the designers start making up their own guys for something fun and new.

    Beast Man and Man at arms were already shown in NY. So my guess is then:

    Beast man, Man at arms, Mer-man and Stratos

    (changed from Ram man, which would require completely different tooling and is therefore very unlikely imho)

    As much as I'd love to get figures like Icer, Strongarm and Fangman in this line (and I certainly hope we will!), looking at that Beast Man and Man at Arms for sure makes me hope for a similarly done Mer-Man and Stratos.

    I'm just guessing more than anything, but since this is a new line, I can't imagine seeing any 'obscure' characters for quite a while. I think they'll be sticking to A and B Listers for a bit.

    That said, I love C and D List characters from many properties, and anybody that knows me will tell you that! Haha!

    Bow
    Catra
    Shadow Weaver
    Glimmer

    Their Filmation designs are all vastly different to their original figures (and in the case of Shadow Weaver, she never received a vintage figure). Bow in particular would be great to see on the standard, vintage male buck.

    With the upcoming She-Ra and the Princesses of Power reboot on Netflix, I think it makes sense for Super7 to cash in on nostalgia for the original series.

    Much like She-Ra was redone in a proper MOTU shape, I'd love to see a Bow done in the same manner!

    Yeah I hope they make Bow in the MOTU style. The original POP version looks way too boyish by comparison to He-Man. Strangely enough most of the characters I would want added to the series are actually more She-Ra related than He-Man and therefore most are women lol. I’m really hoping for Shadow Weaver, Scorpia, Catra, Octavia, Adora, Glimmer, and Queen Marlena. Swiftwind too. Also Imp needs to be included as an accessory for someone.
