At SDCC, Mattel commented that they were looking to keep the price 'around the $300 mark', but that they would likely have to reduce it in size to bring it in at that price. And, in the last answer session provided, Mattel stated they were going to scale the first prototype we saw at SDCC down by about 10% to 20%.
Would you rather they scaled it down a bit to bring it in for around $300? Or would you rather they kept it at the size it was revealed at and charge more for it? Or do you have no interest in it at all?

As originally posted over at Idle Hands, we found out that Mondo is going to be making a licensed line of Masters of the Universe figures.
According to Mondo's Creative Director-Toys/Collectibles Brock Otterbacher, "The idea is to take the basic designs of the original figures, some of the art from the original mini comics and packaging, add a bit of realism to them, along with a bit of our own tastes, and create a series of high-end figures that fans like us would be stoked to have. Designed by Dave Rapoza. Sculpted by Ramirez Studios. EPIC."
All we've seen so far is the teaser image below. They're keeping very hush about things until MONDOCON this October. But they are up for doing a Q&A with fans to let you know whatever info they can share before the con!
So click here to post your questions on the He-Man.Org forums about the upcoming and still mysterious MOTU action figure line from Mondo!

Each attendee may pre-purchase up to three of each exclusive for every ticket pre-ordered. We anticipate the exclusives to sell out during the ticket pre-order period so please plan accordingly!
Attendees may not purchase multiple tickets for themselves; you may only purchase additional tickets for others who will be in your party, in attendance, at the convention. Attendees and everyone in your party for whom you have purchased tickets must be present at the time of ticket pick-up. Attendees must be present at the convention to pick up their exclusives; they will not be shipped.

Children under the age of 12 may enter the show for free without a ticket. They are not eligible to purchase the exclusives unless a ticket is purchased for them.
Ticket Pre-Order Incentives: • Exclusive mini prints to be revealed later • Additional incentives will be revealed soon!
More details about the exclusive Power-Con figures:
Pending performance of pre-order sales, we cannot guarantee there will be additional figure stock for purchase at the convention. Each figure is planned to come on a standard Masters of the Universe Classics blister card that is inside a mailer box and Granamyr will come in the standard “MOTUC” packaging with box art inside a mailer box. Packaging is subject to change.
The vendor that will be processing pre-orders uses a shopping cart reserve system. Once you add an item to your cart, you will have approximately ten minutes to complete your order. If an item is in your cart, you do not need to fear that item selling out before you can complete your order as long as you complete your order within ten minutes. We will have more detailed information closer to the pre-sale date.
Can’t attend the show but still want to obtain these exclusives?
Fans who are unable to attend the show may purchase a special non-attendee merchandise access pass which will allow the holder to purchase up to one of each exclusive at the prices listed above PLUS shipping and handling which will be flat rates for domestic and international fans. Please note that we can't control the price of shipping, especially the high cost of international shipping. Specific pricing on the exclusives with the shipping/handling included will be provided on August 15.
As a non-attendee merchandise access pass holder, you will also receive a physical merchandise access pass badge as a souvenir with your figures for supporting the convention, as well as a copy of the convention’s program and all ticket pre-order incentive items. Non-attendees will not be eligible for Power-Con t-shirt pre-orders.
• Non-attendee merchandise access pass: $25
Note to all:The exclusive Masters of the Universe Classics figures are sold as-is with no returns or exchanges. All sales are final.
