    I can't wait to see what stores these show up in. I hope they are in more than just online stores. I would love to see them in person at a brick and motar store!

    My company will definitely have them in our brick and mortar store, and I assume current Super 7 retailers in general will as well. Comic book shops can stock them. Obviously you arwn't going to see them at walmart but specialty shops for sure. Also for those asking, they are still working on finalizing pricing but think a 19.99 price point is likely.

    2. How many people would by a Filmation variant but would't buy a straight remake?
    3. Which number is bigger?
    Tough to say. I would guess the Filmation variants would probably sell more, as long as they still look familiar enough. But that and three dollars will buy you a cup of coffee

    If they'd drop the stupid black bands in the legs in favor of hip joints like Flying Fists He-Man then I'll get a bunch of these. But I have no desire to own more vintage style figures that will eventually become legless amputees.

    What kind of bands were used in the Three Terrors figures? Was it more of a nylon material?

    I suspect the bands in the 80s were made of organic rubber (I know the Fright Zone puppet was real latex) while the new figures are probably not. Maybe the newer bands won't deteriorate as such? I'm not worried about the legs myself because I'm happy with DIY repairs.

    But speaking of the Three Terrors, does anybody know if these will be distributed to hobby stores as well? I'd almost surely buy these impulsively if I could see them on a shelf and take them home straight away. But if I have to order them online I'm going to have to think about it a lot more (and whether I'd prefer to get some 80s stuff I'm still missing).
    Super7 5.75" Want List:
    - Lord Gr'Asp
    - Fangor
    - Camo Khan
    - Vultak
    - Horde Mummy
    - Anti-Eternia He-Man
    - Strong Arm
    - Vikor
    - Sorceress + POP remakes (Filmation style)

    I honestly don't know. I saw black bands and refused to buy them. But maybe they are nylon. But even so, that creates a different problem. The nylon may not rot the way rubber does but the fabrick will stretch over time. Consider how many vintage Prince Adams have stretched out belts.

    Vintage MOTU is so strongly associated with the black bands that I wonder if Super 7 is even aware that a few vintage MOTU figures had good hip joints like Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Snout Spout, etc. I still maintain that those hip joints would be a far better option than black bands, rubber or nylon.

    Or they could use some ball in socket type joints, where the ball fits into the leg. I believe Realm of the Underworld uses joints like that.

    This is such a great move by Super 7 - very happy

    I hope that if the initial release of Hero and Eldor are on the normal card, that they do a variant figure (exclusive) on the POG card


    I'm in for this whole line

    Original Star Sister Sisters would be awesome - amazing to see these at Power-con

    Include me with those who would like to see the Star Sisters in this line.

    It would be cool if Super7 did vintage Princess of Power style figures for characters like Scorpia and Shadow Weaver too.

    I don't want the Filmation figures. They don't mesh with vintage toys. Most of the vintage toys didn't look like their toon counterparts anyway. They ranged from "sort of close" to "Clawful"

    I always felt so many important female were missing from the vintage line... It could be a smart move to include a few of the following characters in this re-imagined style .

    Adora, Marlana, Shokoti, Green Goddess, Kodac Ungle, Teelana, Kitterina, Hawk, Dre-Elle, Veena, Enchantress, Critta, Mara, Drissi, Catra, Shadow Weaver, Scorpia, Octavia, Hunga, Granita, Melog, Razz, Angella, Glimmer, Frosta & Castaspella. All could look awesome in vintage MOTU style.

    The must haves for me are:

    She-Ra
    Adora
    Marlana
    Catra
    Shadow Weaver
    Scorpia
    Shokoti
    Green Goddess

    I'm keen on the She-Ra (once her knickers have been put away)
    On the 'what I'd want' front, mostly I want more Horde - Shadow Weaver, Scorpia, Vultak, Acrobad, Catra and Octavia - and more concept figures.

    Now that She-Ra is coming how about a MOTU version of Bow in a MOTU vintage buck? I'd love to see that with his Filmation look.

    He-Ro and Eldor are must buys for me. I just really hope they have the POG card backs. Getting non-released 80s toys is just as good if not better than getting reissues.

    I am really excited about these! I wonder what the accessories will look like? Maybe we will get a better Filmation Power Sword!

    The Three Terrors figures tried to mimic the original rubber band technology in the legs, but the new line will copy the Flying Fists He-Man leg joint so they hold up better. These will be sold wholesale so hobby stores can carry them. That's all straight from Brian Flynn to me at Toy Fair.

    As far as those saying the filmation style doesn't fit with the vintage: Those are only the "As seen on TV" ones that have the cartoon look since those didn't exist in the vintage line. Other figures will not be in that style. It's building onto the vintage line with unmade characters and expanding it with tv versions.

    Awesome sauce! I sure hope we'll see some mini comic and more prototype inspired figures in this style as well.

    anyone know when HE-RO and ELDOR would come out? i didn't hear PD ask when or if the cardbacks would be POG

    the rumor mill is that it would be POG cardbacks, but not shown at toyfair since He-ro's cardback has been in such tight secrecy

    Are there any video reviews of the 3 terrors figures? All I see are videos of carded figures.
