    I'd love a Filmation design, but in the clouds. SO basically just take the bottom of the vintage toy and put Filmation design on top of it. Looking at that last pic in Angel-T's post, I could totally see it as a giant castle. That crystal in the base could be recessed into a giant alcove, and then you could have a bunch of fabulous hallways and chambers in the rest of the castle. Of course as a toy version, it couldn't have a 1000 rooms, it would probably have just that one room with the crystal which is perfectly fine with me. I don't care if it looks like Light Hope's bedroom in a shape of a tiara, nothing wrong with that

    Option D for me. At least both groups will be happy, vintage and Filmations and I'm both.

    D; a combination of both. (I'd like Snake Mountain to do the same thing-Fright Zone too.)

    I picked a combo of A and B. I have very, very little faith we'll ever see this, but it would be cool at some point.

    Option D.

    The vintage/Filmation combo is by far the best and surely 4H and Mattel will go this route if a new CC ever happens.

    The golden tiara would probably be removable and
    stand on it's own making for the backdrop in transformation dios.

    A 4h version of the classic meshed with filmation would be some thing of greatness in my opinion, and IMO would be the best route to go!

    I'd like to see a combination of vintage/classic toy and Filmation version. That hybrid looks awesome!

    I voted for A. I tend to be in the minority on POP stuff. I wish everything to do with classics had followed the original toyline, but so far the fans and Scott want things to follow Filmation.

    I think since I started collecting the toys long before I enjoyed the cartoons it makes me always vote vintage toyline over Filmation.

    I choose option D a combination of option A the classic toy and option B filmation.548702_10151262220135325_696728379_n.jpg
    I think this combination is best because some people want one or the other, I think that it is a good Idea to make the Fimation part detachable.
    I think the Filmation Part should attach to the front of the Crystal Castle so that the Crystal Castle can still have that look when its open.
    I think the Crystal Castle should include a backdrop version of Light Hope.

    As much as I like this suggestion of yours NikeBoyRM, to me that's what the playset should have looked like back in the 80s...today, I just want the real deal Filmation Castle. It doesn't have to have anything happening on the inside or be "fictional" as a house the way the original was. Just having the real deal Castle in 3 dimensions would be enough.

    With very little effort we can create a diorama of the interior with Light Hope's pool on our own.

    Word. Straight up Filmation, and as tall of taller than Snake Mountain. They could basically make a hollow facade of the front and I'd be happy, since I think it would be a big strech to have enough fans support the price of a full on playset for this. It'll likely never happen either way, but I've said that about several things that were just revealed at SDCC, so never say never!

    Oh, I would prefer it not be a facade - I want it to have a back and front!

    I voted D, a combination of vintage and Filmation, just like Snake Mountain is getting elements from both.

    But I do NOT want the following kind of hybrid where the Filmation part is reduced to a mere smaller ornament on top that looks like a secondary afterthought:

    548702_10151262220135325_696728379_n.jpg

    I want the kind of hybrid where the Filmation side is given a similar size and prominence as the vintage side, as in the following almost perfect solution where each half of the clamshell pays due respect to one of the versions while the whole blends and looks stylistically consistent:

    I prefer it to not be a facade either, but it would be better than nothing at all. I would be overjoyed if their was enough support for a full on playset!

    Well, I'd always go for the toy version, but looking at the picture Tallstar posted, I totally voted "D".

    The problem with Filmation: They just totally screwed it (like with everything else...) and like with the Fright Zone, they just didn't get it and except the name, it had nothing to do with the toy or what it is/should be.

    With their Crystal Castle, I never understood what it is/was: Is it just the top of something? Is it just a statue-thing? It doesnt't even look like a castle. Crystal Castle is supposed to be for She-Ra what Castle Grayskull is for He-Man (when I was little, my She-Ra even lived in that castle...but in Filmation it isn't even is a castle).

    Well, when I saw the above picture Tallstar posted, I realized, that that Filmation-thing (whatever it was) could be beautifully worked into the toy design (somehow replacing the elevator, but which also could be on the inside then) and then it would finally make sense.
    I love that concept and I would totally want it (even more than Snake Mountain)
