    Oh, so they can do only filmation figures? :-( We have to have faith in future Mattel intervention...

    Mattel just announced an SDCC exclusive set that's a preview of their new 5.5" line.

    It's super-articulated, 5,5" (a bit taller if you unbend the knees), and basically looks to be going back to Alcala and the vintage toy proportions.

    The line has been confirmed by the 4 Horsemen to be a line they were hired to do after Mattel developed the Adam/He-Man prototype and it's called Masters of the Universe: Origins.

    Apparent retail price looks to be $20 a figure and one of the Horsemen said it's headed to physical mass retail later in the year.

    I see them, He-man and Alcala style Pince Adam but I don't like them too much.
    It's an ibrid between classics and vintage… and for me it's too much a confusion between the two styles.

    I think they look pretty cool but whatever the case I just hope Super 7 can keep making the neo-vintage figures like they have been. Although I’m not thrilled about them being boxed into Filmation style only. It’s acceptable but I hope they concentrate on more never before release vintage style MOTU characters like Icer or Batros or most of the Filmation She-ra cast.

    +the He-Man's heads are very bad... again... I don't understand why because the 12" Giant figures they shown the last year had perfect vintage style He-Man's heads
    I was really waiting for something more like the vintage line, as Super7 is doing (but not limited at Filmation's)
    With many articulations like they did, it is just a classics/vintage hybrid line... to say differently: the Classics line but smaller... zero interest for me.

    I think if there’s one major hope for S7 aside from Reaction, it would be a continuation of the vintage stuff they have been doing, namely Filmation and Grayskull.

    I feel like Powers of Grayskull in particular can be spun off into its own brand to avoid market confusion that would worry Mattel.

    It’s almost potentially as much a separate brand as She-Ra.

    King Grayskull, Gladiator, Ro, Veena, Ancient King Hiss, Horde Prime, the Fighting Foe Men, Lady Slither. A Gigantasaur campaign. Maybe Terrorsaur or giants reissues. Or King Hiss’ purple Terrorsaur from the minicomics.

    If, and that is probably a big IF, they continue the new vintage line, I suspect they will closely follow Club Grayskull - seems more economical since the design work at least overlaps. I mean, that would at least explain why we are getting someone as "obscure" as Evil Seed over some of the more prominent characters. So if there is a wave 5, I would expect Clawful, Grizzlor, Mantenna, Man-e-Faces and Fisto.

    I would love those main characters for my collection. I would be really mad if I started to collect the new vintage line and it ends so fast. The point of this vintage line is they remind me of the figures from the 80s including the packaging. Hope they don't ever change that. I'm a moc collector. But eventually may buy some to open down the road.

    Ever since COTU made their awesome Scorpia figure from a vintage Teela buck I've wanted one. Hopefully this line will deliver that...as well as Filmation Bow, Glimmer, Leech, Mantenna and -my all-time want - Catra!

    But I want Catra to be girly like the original POP figures. Fabric cape and skirt, rooted hair....the works! . It won't happen though. Did you see what they did to a vintage styled She-Ra? *shudder*

    I’m ready for either -

    A full She-Ra Wave:
    Scorpia
    Catra
    Glimmer
    Bow

    or

    A full Female Wave:
    Scorpia
    Catra
    Katrina
    Queen Marlena

    Honorable mention:
    Octavia
    Shokoti
    Huntara
    Adora

    So Flynn said the Stout collection is independent of Mattel (unaffected by the license stuff there) and that they have rights to make Stout’s She-Ra design but can’t call it She-Ra because it was never publicly used as She-Ra.

    I think that would be a solid couple of Vintage waves. I heard the 7 inch didn’t sell super but I think 5.5 Stout movie figures would fill a lot of collection gaps and sell better at the lower price point.

    There might also be an opening to do Vintage style comics Conan, Bravestarr, and TMNT. The TMNT might be really interesting as a reinterpretation of the original Playmates figures.
