    I'm really hoping for a foreign comics compilation, an audio drama compilation (either as an actual audio thing or as a book with properly translated scripts, as some of the ones on the site are very Google Translate-y), or some sort of multiverse guidebook, delving deeper into each version of Eternia/Etheria (like what the Netflix She-Ra's version of He-Man is up to, how Anti-He-Man became the way he is, how 200X Skeletor managed to win, what the great war from the early minicomics was, what Etheria was like in the movie universe, etc.)

    That would be awesome. My want list is:

    1. More comics collections, be they foreign (translated to English), the MYP series, or the Star Comics series. (All of the above, please!)

    2. A compilation of the U.S. MOTU magazine series.

    3. A 200x episode guide.

    You'll get NA toys in this official Toy Guide from Dark Horse.

    The cartoon, though? There's just not much info out there. It's hard to track down the creators, and very little of the resources in the creation of the show are out there. In addition, there's only 65 episodes.
    You take the He-Man and She-Ra animated guide by James Eatock, which clocks in 592 pages. It features behind-the-scenes info and a look at 223 episodes total from He-Man and She-Ra.
    So if you take just the 65 episodes from NA, even if you had the same behind-the-scenes content, that's more like a 177 pages which makes for a small book. That's not in line with the past releases for the general book market.

    But, who knows. Maybe there could be something that has NA and 200x together?
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    I'd totally buy a 200X guide. I never saw much of it, but I remember seeing a few episodes as a small child (maybe in daycare or kindergarten?). Also, does Dark Horse have the rights to do stuff with modern MOTU? Like the She-Ra reboot, Revolations, and the new CGI cartoon? I know Scholastic published the She-Ra graphic novel, so I'm curious what the licensing stuff is like.

    I hope 200X and Classics have their good share of this guide. NECA stactions are going to be there? I remember as I started collecting the stactions right after 200X was cancelled, and it blended nicely with the action figures (same scale, style). They're kind of in the middle of a toy and a statue.

    I'm also excited about the suplemental character guide. It will be a most welcome and cellebrated mandatory addition to my MOTU library. I wonder if it will be more focused on the action figures released after the original character guide was published. That would be my preference, since I think those hyper-obscure characters from media (comics, newspaper strips, cartoons and audio plays) were already covered.
    Wish list of MOTUC figures: Sagitar, Red Beast, Red Shadow, Red Knight, Hans Hammerholder, Ra-Jar

    Excellent!

    I didn't realize that the New Adventures vintage line was included in this book!



    I wouldn't mind a combo NA episode guide/trivia and a compilation of the European comics... maybe the U.K. comics along with unreleased Ehapa German artwork, and a section for all of the unique Scrollos pages that were created for the U.K. books.
    We need the POWER of the GOOD and the WAY of the MAGIC !!!

    So I contributed some things to the book, as did several others. I got a sneak preview of part of it and all I can say is that I think people are going to love this

    Definitely excited for this book! That Eternia box they are photographing for it is a thing of beauty! I really hope Mattel decides to reissue this epic playset for the Origins line!

    Wow - really looking forward to this forthcoming MOTU Toy Book. All of Dark Horse's past MOTU books have been superb, and I'm sure this will be no exception.

    I do hope the underrated 200X Art Asylum-sculpted line will be in here, as well as the NECA Stactions. Though I didn't collect the Stactions, they did look great & I wish I had gotten at least some of them.

    Also really digging the "making of" pics. Makes me wish I had gotten the huge Eternia playset back in the day. And, as a huge fan of NOES 3: Dream Warriors (my favorite Elm Street flick), nice to see the poster on the wall

    The price of masters figs will go up when this comes out, because everyone will see what they are missing and say to themselves I need that.

    Will this cover the She-Ra reboot dolls and toys and the Mondo figures?
