    IF Snake Mountain happens, what Playset would you like next?

    Someone mentioned the Slime Pit on a different poll's thread, and it got me to thinking about playsets. Now, I know this is assuming A LOT; but let's say we do get a Snake Mountain playset and Super 7 decides larger items like that are worth the time and effort (though maybe not as large). Which playset would you like to see them do? I am listing some vintage ones, but some new ideas as well. If anyone has a new idea I didn't think of, please mention it in a post. Others may agree with you.

    Even though I love all of the options, I had to go with the Slime Pit!

    I cannot deny the absolute fun I had with this set when I received it as a birthday gift back in '86...

    The Real Ghostbusters may have popularized the toy 'slime', but it was the Slime Pit that did it right!!


    Also, that artwork!

    Based on Snake Mountain mixing vintage and Filmation so well, I'd like the same treatment for Fright Zone.

    I wouldn't like the idea of a mix for a Fright zone at this stage of the game,
    to speak quite frankly.

    Their aesthetics in addition to their nature are radically opposed.
    And I think that there must be exceptions to each regulation, in this specific example, I'd humbly suggest to apply it.

    They could go with the vintage replica first, then,
    working on a spare parts concept as a second run.

    It'd be fun to collect each & every pieces
    of it until you get your entire industrial stronghold for Hordak.

    Combo Fright Zone for me. There were many great choices in this poll that made it difficult to decide on just one. I only wish Lady Slither's Lair had been added. The Snakemen need a new base since Skelly has Snake Mountain.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    C'mon, no Mutant Slime Pit from 200X/MYP? In all honesty, it would likely be the least wanted one for MOTUC.

    Since I mainly collect the Horde, it'd be awesome to have a Fright Zone playset to stage them on.

    The Fright Zone (vintage inspired) for me. In all fairness, Crystal Castle should logically come next after Snake Mountain but I would love Fright Zone first...

    Here Here! I would love this.

    I wanted to vote for Crystal Castle. I know I want a slight mix of Filmation with Vintage toy. Until I see the art though I am too afraid to have any desire for it.

    Slime Pit however would be nicer to the wallet and also therefor more plausible perhaps. It's iconic and amazing. Having a Slime Pit He Man come with it would be BOSS!

    SIDE NOTE You really should add the Snake Fortress from the minicomic. It was as we all know designed to be reminiscent of an actual playset that may have existed and it looks pretty cool. I'd like one.

    I think with that poll that's pretty clear what playsets should come if the snake mountain is released and I really hope that will be the case !

    I voted "3 Towers," but, really, I think we just need the middle tower, with a couple of bridges or walkways to connect to the existing Grayskull and Snake Mountain playsets- I think making all 3 towers as one playset would make the cost too prohibitive for Super 7 to make it.

    However single released Vyper Tower & whatever they call the Grayskull tower after or before the main Eternian tower would be very cool as well. 3 "Casltes" to release over time.

    I'd go with The Three Towers (vintage Eternia inspired).

    Crystal Castle (vintage inspired) would be a close second.

    inasmuch as I wanted to vote for Whispering Woods, Eternos Palace, Three Towers, Crystal Castle, and Fright Zone...had to go with the Horde stronghold.

    Yes, the next should be the Crystal Castle (vintage-Filmation combo).

    After that, a Filmation Fright Zone. As I've argued many times before, I think the vintage Fright Cave should not be merged with it, as they're radically different and diametrically oppposed in terms of aethetics, etc. And since we have a Fright Cave already (the vintage one), but no Filmation Fright Zone yet, my choice would be to make the latter first (and ideally a remake of the former some time aftewards, even though it would be extremely unlikely to reach much further than a third or fourth MotUC playset, or even to get a second, since Snake Mountain has been in "development hell" for years and already looks like it will finally never happen).

    Summing up:

    1. Castle Grayskull [Eternia - central display piece]
    2. Snake Mountain (combo) [Eternia - side-of-evil headquarters]
    3. Crystal Castle (combo) [Etheria - central display piece]
    4. Fright Zone (Filmation) [Etheria - side-of-evil headquarters]
    5. Three Towers of Eternia [Preternia - central display piece]
    6. Eternos Palace (Filmation) [Eternia - side-of-good heardquarters]
    7. Castle Brightmoon [Etheria - side-of-good headquarters]
    8. Nordor [Trisolar - side-of-evil headquarters]
    9. Onnor [Trisolar - side-of-good headquarters]

    The Slime Pit belongs in a different category (more like "diorama pieces"), in my opinion, since it is significantly smaller. Or it could go together with the Fright Cave, since these two do match in aesthetics.

    Whispering Woods should be a set of ("build-a-forest") diorama pieces, rather than a clamshell playset.

    Starship Eternia, the Mutant Mothership, the Velvet Glove, and the Collector would be "playset-sized", but these are vehicles, so I don't mix them into the same category.

    I voted for the slime pit . Then yesterday I was thinking how cool it would be to have the accessories for Castle Grayskull that you can get for the icon heroes statue it would make it taller so it would look better next to Snake mountain and most people display it closed up anyway (I think) I would buy that before any other set that cool spider looking stand and bridge and the cool looking smoke under the castle

    Even if Snake Mountain doesn't get made, I am not sure that necessarily means there will be no more playsets at all. For example, I still think the Slime Pit is quite possible, with or without Snake Mountain, for a few different reasons. Number one, it is obviously popular with people. Number two, it is a lot smaller than any of the official strongholds or fortresses. Number three, Super 7 obviously enjoys the slime idea as evidenced by some of their other products. Number four, as others have pointed out, they could sell it with a "Slime Pit He-Man" figure that would involve absolutely no new tooling (just a green version of the already existing He-Man figure ) and would allow them to charge a little extra. I figure it is most likely the next playset, primarily because it is smaller, but for all the other reasons too.

    Ok, that's the last I'd read too. That was more than a year ago seems like.

    In all honesty, combo fright zone, combo crystal castle, zalasia, and eternia three towers.
    My real pick was Fright Zone combo, but I would like it if they designed it to later attach SlimePit, and Horror Hall. How sick would that be.
