    Adult Collector Preferred Lines (2020 Poll)

    Where is the interest of MOTU collectors pointing now?


    The purpose of this poll is to measure the interest within orgers about collecting MOTU figures, scaled statues and other licensed products, and rating these lines in order of preference of Adult collectors and demand.


    With the last news announcing the final releases of Classics, and the promising coming Mattel Origins line, let's see what is the current interest and taste in MOTU collectible figures lines/products in this forum. Vintage, old, used, new, Coming, pre-orders, projects, doesn't matter, just pick your line (or lines) of preference, or currently collecting (or wish to). If there is something missing in the lines, pick "Other" and specify it in a reply to this thread.

    Classics and only Classics. And I mean Classics proper, as in CC. As in, not CG.

    edit: I get it, Classics is essentially dead (or "on hiatus", or whatever). Even so. I hold a silver of hope, a vigil, of sorts, for the return of MOTUC some day, to some extent. I don't care what source material it would pull from (movie, NA, etc, blah) - just make more Classics, and I'll buy them w/o hesitation.

    Mega Construx for me. That's all I'm buying now, anyway. I have a reasonable set of vintage and 200X figures, but I'm not adding to them, whereas I'm excited for more Mega Construx!

    Classics. That's my true love.

    I collect Mega Construx, but I'm not super excited by it. Just collecting it because it's something small that's MOTU and doesn't take up much space. I'll get Origins, but that's only because it's at retail and I won't be able to help myself. I also dabble in Reaction, but I'm certainly no completist with that particular line.
    Wanted in MOTUC: 1) Masks of Power Demons 2) Mini-Comics Tri-Klops 3) Hoove 4) Vintage Attack Trak 5) Leech (Club Grayskull)

    Classics. Not interested in the Club Grayskull line, though I'd be happy if/when it comes back for those who do take to those figures.

    I'll continue to pick up extra Classics for customs and army-building, though I doubt I'll ever bother getting many of the CG line, which I largely skipped. I'm excited for Origins and maaaaaybe some minis, but I'm passing on MCX.

    Classics and Sideshow Statues are my bread and butter. The Sideshow Statues are the best, but pricey. Classics are nice and have the best selection.

    My MOTU preference in order:

    1) Vintage (including 80's stuff/comics)
    2) Classics Mattel
    3) Classics Super7
    4) Origins
    5) Mondo 1/6
    6) 200x & Neca Stactions
    7) Vintage NA
    8) Equal position/weight for: Giants, Minis, Megaconstrux, Super7 Vintage, and/or ReAction

    I don't collect any of the other lines, but I'm glad for those who do. It's good to know that there is Motu for different tastes. (Sometimes is too much, like this new "SODA" line from Funko) but the fact that they keep considering MOTU for those diverse collectible lines (toys, adult figures, variants, exclusive editions, statues, glasses or whatever...) helps to keep this franchise alive. At the end of the day, we as MOTU fans regardless of our individual preferences and tastes, want this franchise to stay with us, and pass that interest on to next generations.

    I'm seventeen, so idk if I count as an adult collector, but I'll probably just stick to Origins and maybe some Classics for accessories and parts for Origins.

    Many of these adult collector lines specify in the box "for ages 14+, 15+, etc". Yes, you count.
    And viceversa: 40's ~50's count as kids, when we start buying Origins (toyline) and playing with them .

    You are proof of this point.

    Hmm, I don't know why this popped up as a new post?

    Eh, since I'm here, I'll vote and comment. I just do the Tweeterhead/Sideshow 1/5 statues. For certain characters and pieces, I might add in a few statues of other scales, but the 1/5 line is my main priority.

    I'm not big on action figures, but a few have been tempting. If I can catch a few of these amazing clearance deals I see posted at random on FB, that will probably be what brings me in the door.

    These post will show as "new" even if someone only votes in the poll without commenting.
