I'm beginning to really warm up to Doom Tower. It's still not my first choice, but I'm slowly starting to like it more than Snake Lair
>>10615518Curious but why? It looks like it has 0 play features and very little space to actually put figures. Seems like the most underwhelming in terms of what you can do with it.
>>10615496>Origins vintage line goes to Mattel Creations exclusive in 2024He was right.
>>10615537Color aesthetic mainly. Also, it's kinda like a Horde Eternia tower, like it's a fourth tower to rival Grayskull and Viper Tower
>>10615553Of the selection the vehicles look the coolest.
All these options are shit that won't be worth the asking price. Eternia at least made sense to crowdfund. Motherfuckers you just made Snake Mountain, none of these hold a candle to that thing.
>>10615562And that is why the vehicles are the only ones that make sense
>>10615568A fuckhuge filmation Horde tank and Attack Trak aren't even on my radar for things I'd buy, let alone at a crowdfund markup. There are far cooler Motu vehicles that haven't been made yet. Snake Lair and Fright Zone I'd have been interested in, but you know damn well they're gonna be pushing over $100-150.
>>10615562Sorry bro the line is dead on retail you have to be part of our crowdfunding we can't let our merch go to the discount section get fuck sorry.
>>10615615I have space for vehicles not more playsets. I'm happy if you have the space for whatever tho.
>>10615615I want battle bones not random toon shit but I also don't want a 100 dollars battle bones.
>>10615546How fucking hard was it to see a line being canceled at retail when there's a tremendous buildup at Walmart and they refuse to go half-off? He was wrong that it would just plain end.
>>10615631>have space for vehicles not more playsetsThen you don't have space for either Attack Trak or Horde Tank. They drew figures in there for scale, those vehicles will easily be as big as a playset.
>>10615666It's not even cancelled. Reissues will still be at retail, and so will Cartoon Collection. Scott is only "right" if you ignore that he said Origins was going to outright end and if you selectively pick and choose what counts as "only new vintage line figures that weren't released at retail yet counts as Origins".
>>10615679>They drew figures in there for scalePart of my issue with this fan vote. They gave us the most basic preliminary sketches with almost 0 specs or details about what it is we are voting for. I don't need a fully tooled prototype but show me detailed concept sketches of interior, exterior, features etc. Like give us something to work with if you expect people to crowdfund after the fact.
>>10615562Jesus, that Golden Book
>>10615679>They drew figures in there for scale, those vehicles will easily be as big as a playset.Sadly I don't get much sense of how many figures would fit in the Horde tank from that. (Ideally the full Filmation Horde plus Dragstor and Mosquitor)
>>10615615>Snake Lair and Fright Zone I'd have been interested in, but you know damn well they're gonna be pushing over $100-150.That will be worth it if there's pack in figures. Snake Lair by itself might be only worth $80, but if it was Snake Lair with 3 stretch goal figures (assuming the all got unlocked), that'd be worth 100-150, wouldn't it?
>>10615496So I don't really even collect MotU Origins, but I'm always up for some nice big tanks. The Attack Trak is cute and all, kind of like a beefed up Mystery Machine, but it's not something I'd jump through hoops to pick up. The Horde Crawler on the other hand looks so ridiculous that I must have it. If it's really as big as that figure implies, it'll probably even work with figures bigger then the 5" MotU:O guys. I always found vehicles more fun to mess with then playsets anyway, especially vehicles that can double AS playsets, and that behemoth should have tons of play value.
Instead of the Crawler, they should be trying to crowdfund an aircraft carrier with Hordak's head on it. At USS Flagg size.
>>10615707This is the mentality that has killed other crowdfunds. Stretch goals shouldn't determine the worth of the campaign, the base product should. And if the base product is priced at a ridiculous point, the stretch goals won't be reached.

>>10615693I'm skeptical that Walmart will stock several pegs of the new figures now that the cartoon is over and the movie is back to in-limbo.
>>10615905They stock all kinds of low selling crap, it all depends on the buyer and contract. The store sold 5 moss man stes in just 2 days, that's a fast $200 extra toys wasn't going make unless they bought moss man on the shelves. Plus I think people outside of the general may enjoy them, not as much as the wweternia stuff, but I see a cross over appeal. Will/has the shelf space been decreased? Yup.
>>10615666>>10615693He posts this every thread for (you)s. Don't bother replying.
>>10615865That was actually a pretty good issue. I'm shocked.
>>10615960This please, fuck scotttroll.
Tbh most of those crowdfunds feel like something that could be fan made. I believe someone already did Attak Trak. And Eternos Palace.
>Fright Zone and Snake Lair are going to winBad day for tooners and whoever at Mattel decided to double down on Filmation stuff.
>>10616304>all Filmation options lose poll>Cartoon Collection falls on its face and just peg warms until clearance >Filmation never incorporated into toys again
I can't believe they didn't make this in the 80s to play with!
>>10616323I hear somebody attacked a famous chess player with a fan made one or something
>>10616312>>10616304We can hope, but this will means snakes are going to be here to stay if the castle gets funded...
>>10616341>Snakes and Horde are hear to stay.I think I've finally found the right timeline.
>>10616341Lesser of two evils.Snakes only have me bored because there's too many all at once.Cartoon accurate versions of characters, vehicles and playsets are something I actively hate.So, yeah, I will take Terroars, Grasps and Stretch Necks over "here's Mantenna with dick sucking lips"
>>10615496>Two large filmation vehicles and a towerIs Mattel really confident or just hoping that the cartoon line will do well at retail? I don't have the room or interest to restart and collect the toon line. So I guess I'll just vote for the Snake Lair. That lazy Fright Zone is a real missed opportunity.
>>10616334I got that reference!
Once they finally make Two-Bad we should have every vintage figure that appered in 200X. Filmation does worse as we still would be lacking Modulok, Multi-Bot and Stonedar.
>>10615518>>10615537>>10615555The doom tower is my favorite after fright zone(which is my favorite motu toy ever, really pissed it's included in this vote). Like other anon said the aesthetic is top tier, and I think it's a bit larger than it appears too. Things like the clear green laser gate and the cell/medical/transformation chamber are super cool, and there's neat things like the computer consoles, weapons rack, ladder, and areas on the sides of the tower to scale it and fight off the tech tentacles. I'd also like to imagine their might be features hidden should it actually get made, like perhaps a light up function or something special with the chamber on the first floor. It just looks super cool and very unique for a playset. Something like the snake base is just another grayskull clone, and don't get me wrong, it's neat and I'd get it, but it doesn't feel like anything particularly new or unique. It's a homage set instead of something new, risky and interesting like the doom tower.
Doom Tower is definitely the best.
>>10616673I feel like it's best in importance (if you care about Filmation) and visual but seems to be low on play features or even places to put figures on.
>>106166991) movable robo tentacle arms/legs 2) opening laser gate3) opening containment celll/mutation vat thing4) fold out ladder5) weapons rack6) computer terminal7) hordak throneIs what we see in pictures. I think a big selling point would be if the face out front was light up. There's also a couple of places to stand on the outer walls of the tower itself, and it looks like the steps might fold down revealing the throne which means something else neat could be behind them. Its tough to really judge from such a basic preliminary sketch but I feel like it has the most potential by a mile.
>>10616673>>10616699>>10616724At most, it looks on par with the Central Tower as far as play features/holding figures.As a tower with struts going upward, it even LOOKS like part of the Eternia playset.
>>10616824>buy Eternia playset>throw Grayskull Tower in garbage>replace with Doom Tower>Eternia now ruled by Skeletor in Central Tower, Hordak in Doom Tower and Hiss in Viper TowerFuck good guys
Anyone's got that picture of Skeletor holding smaller Skeletor holding smaller Skeletor? (or was it He-Men, I don't remember)
>>10615496 So why is there a mashup of the Battlestar Galactica Land-ram and the Mystery Machine here? Does the H-verse Shaggy ride "Battle Scoob"?

Have we gotten any kind of news of new Origins after the current wave?
>>10617103All the news is in the OP green text
>>10617109I'm fucking stupid, thank you. Haven't been to these threads in months.
Cast my vote for the truck and the tank. Vehicles are just more fun than buildings.
>>10617122kys go get a fuckin hot wheels
My Spikor's trident hand came glued in and I can't fucking remove it. Anyone else have this issue?
Got some new origins in at work, it's the clawful wave but it's something.
>>10616673No trap door big enough for Mantenna to fall into, no buy!
>>10617153I'd buy an Origins sized version of this
Another quiet night looking at my shelf of toys and imagining myself explaining how I got them and their quirks to people in my head
>>10617470Im about to put my votes in. I was procrastinating. Also couldnt decide. I dont want a snake castle, but more playsets are better and it would make a cool backdrop and we dont know what the other side will have. Doom tower doesnt have enough floorspace for my liking, but does have potential. Still slightly undecided I guess.Why the hell didnt they do a slime pit combo with the fucking fright zone wtf ? Hope they think about that as an add on, but dont make it a shit tier or whatever they do.
>>10617600either slime pit is an add-on or they plan a retail release because it would be small enough for shelves
>>10617153Nta but I always pictured pic related as Scare Glow.
>>10616956Nice to see Scrappy in respect
>>10617601>>10617600They're saving the slime pit for the Mortal Kombat krossover.
>>10617600>dont want a snake castle, but more playsets are better and it would make a cool backdrop and we dont know what the other side will have. Doom tower doesnt have enough floorspace for my liking, but does have potential.>still slightly undecidedYou sound decided to me. If you don't want a Snake castle, you don't want a snake castle, no "buts" necessary. You're only gripe about Doom Tower was "not enough floor space", but you didn't say you don't want it. You've already picked Fright Zone and Doom Tower, why continue to dicker about it?
If I bought myself a Zodac and wanted to use part swapping to make him less monstery and more spacemany, which arms and boots from everything in Origins, MotWWE and Superstars would yield the best results?
>>10618000Eternian Guard arm armor pieces plus Man-E-Faces lower torso and legs. If you want space barbarian and has money, the Snake Man 4 pack He-Man lower torso and legs.
I voted for the playsets. Fuck y'all.
>>10617566I'd love to just sit around and explain my shelf world to someone who was curious, but it just ends up being me pulling a group off to pose and stare at instead. Gotta say though, me and the motu crew have shared plenty of good times together. And they never drink my beer.
>>10618096>Fuck y'allMost of us voted for playsets though.
I voted for toy Fright Zone and Attak TrakAt least Attak Trak comes with another, smaller (and also vintage accurate) Attak Trak inside it
>>10618000Get Mekanek and use the blue parts to give him a better suit color with the red armor
I can see Fright Zone being made later no matter what So I voted for the ones I don't think would have another chance
>>10618453I don't have that much faith in Mattel.If Fright Zone loses, unless it's by a very small margin, I can see them just saying fuck it
>>10617907I cant help but dicker around, I wish there were better choices to choose from. Truth be told I am, the limited floorspace on the doom tower is a bit of a deal breaker for me - in terms of actually wanting it, but acknowledge that it has potential and is popular with many, that can be seen here clearly.I am not big on the Snake Men - so my first feeling are, oof dont want that. In terms of playability and probably better for pics, their Castle got my vote in the end.Cant help but feel lightly salted with the choices we got here cuz "large scale" means something bigger for me.>>10617601Dont want to seem like the other anon here having luls, but I dont think we are going to be seeing any playsets in retail going forward, unless they plan for filmation ones - I guess that may depend on the sales when the time comes.
>>10618519I can see them doing a more true to the original one with less balls and pissles later, but not the one here with that concept art
>>10618432>At least Attak Trak comes with another, smaller (and also vintage accurate) Attak Trak inside itIf it gets funded I wonder if any filmation fans would be willing to sell the smaller Trak to vintage fans. I have no use for the giant toon version but would like the vintage styled one for a reasonable price. Maybe I'll make it my second vote after all.
Tuxedo Skeletor figure when.
>>10619205After despara but before battle bones. >no battle bones to vote one while we all argue over play sets or vehicles#horde tank #420 #tuxedo skeletor
>>10616464how would you feel about cartoon inspired repaints of figures we already got?
>>10617492people really slept on the MOTU Hot Wheels. Battle Cat, Skeletor, Beastman, Teela, and MAA were exceptionally handled. I still wish better had been done for He-man.
>>10618742>ramen toys concept haunted house fright zone never
>>10619298Be too expensive. Love Ace's work, but that Sewer is already expanding beyond the normal pitch scope. The one shown with two rooms is two different sets apparently which makes it about the same price as the NECA one now
>>10619319At least then it will be worth it.Maybe he can sell them as smaller sets for you to mix and match?
Big box of bad guys supposedly arriving on Monday.Haven't gotten a new Origins toys since Frog Monger.
>>10619283Waste of time. Most of them dont have different enough color scheme.
>>10619192>I have no use for the giant toon versionThat actually got me hoping they won't actually make it a two-seater. Much like you I don't really want a giant toon version, but if it's scaled down to more toy style, much like how the Wind Raider could only seat one, to keep the size and cost down.But I guess we'll see.
I wonder what the turnaround on this is gonna be. Eternia had a completed prototype and it's going to be a year a half between funding and delivery. In gonna assume none of these have gotten any further than the sketches...how long after the vote would it be before we see product, and from there how long before the campaign even starts?
Speak up if you think MotU was at its most interesting from 1985-7.And if you agree with me, when were you born? Did you see the vintage toys in stores when you were just old enough for action figures and notice that characters like the Horde, Snake Men, Extendar and Two Bad were all unique while these other guys had the same couple of bodies with different heads? Did you watch the 2002 show as a kid and that led to looking up the vintage era?
>>10619728I'm 25 and the second wave will always be my favorite. Ram Man, Manny, Tri-Klops, Trapjaw, Evil-Lyn, & Faker are near-perfect in terms of checking off all 3 of my criteria for a "must have" motu figure.>role in play (ex: witch, bounty hunter, etc)>gimmick, wave 2 blew wave 1 out of the water as far as I'm concerned>actually appeared in the media contentAnd no one tops Trapjaw or his wIcKeD lAsEr
Wave 1985 Master Race. I need more of them in Origins so Two-Badly.
Considering that most figures cant fit there unless you remove top with Talon Fighter and we still don't have Gwildor - who would you entrust with ancient secrets of Point Dread? Orko? Battle Cat? or Ram Man?
Found Moss Mans
>>10619430It was worth it with the neca one. Especially since the Ramen bootleg doesn't match the style
>>10619728I only remember having quite a few figures and some photos of me in motu shirts. Can't recall ever picking a toy or even being at a store till I got into gi joe. >81
>>10619728Yo.>1982 almost entirely lame>1983 almost perfect, but it's the smallest year in figure count. Easy to get 100% when you only put out 7 figures >1984 really hit or miss. Half are cool, half are lame>1985 aside from Moss Man and Stinkor being straight repaints and wishing Mantenna and Leech both looked cooler to do their concepts justice, no complaints. Possibly peak year. >1986 loses the plot a little. Two rocks are redundant; leader of new faction a total dud but his mooks end up two of the best figures in the line; and no Evil Warriors this year; but the trio of Snout Spout, Extendar and Rio-Blast make up the single best Heroic Warrior assortment; and Dragstor is underrated>1987 does not deserve any hate or looking down upon except for maybe the Energy Zoids because they're an acquired taste, and my only nitpick outside of it is not liking Ninjor having a soft goods hood. Might rival 1985's assortment

>>10620128Oh nice. Good to know
Do I need a $5 Stridor?
>>10620151its 5 dollars anon theres no downside to this purchase
>>10619482Im probably the only one that wants to see Leech with filmation colors then
>>10620151>Do I need a $5 Stridor?Yes
>>10619728200X was my big introduction to the series. MEF, Mek, and Roboto were my favorite heroes and like most kids I thought the Evil Warriors were the most badass shit on the planet. The thing is I never saw any of the toys in stores. In fact the only time I saw 200X stuff in a store was when a bunch of Heman and Skeletor repaints were on sale, but because they looked so odd I was confused as to what they even were (I was 4 at the time). When I got a little older and gained internet access I researched the vintage line endlessly. Like >>10619745 mentioned the second wave is pretty great, but I cant really boil any one wave down to being my favorite. I have a soft spot for everybody, even the goofier "boring" guys. In terms of what I consider the most interesting chunk of vintage, its probably the combo of foreign or obscure variants, preternian dinosaurs, the fright flyer, and the unreleased 88'ers.
There are approximately 29 Evil Warriors:1. Skeletor2. Beast Man3. Merman4. Evil-Lyn5. Trap Jaw6. Tri-Klops7. Faker8. Clawful9. Whiplash10. Webstor11. Kobra Khan12. Jitsu13. Two Bad14. Stinkor15.

What's the scariest piece of MOTU media? Do we have anything close to the horror genre?
>>10620151Yeah, it takes fisto from handsome to handsome 2.0. Get two and paint one up for jit su.
>>10620251my list then becomes>terroar>snake trooper>tung lashor>trapjaw>faker>leech>clawful>skeletor>hordak>whiplash
>>10620438the MOTM handling of Anti-Eternians is the most that comes to mind. thats why Im all for toyline inspired monster horde. a bunch of freaky barbarian monsters is more endearing than space aliens.
>>10620547I pitched the idea here of an Anti-Eternia 3-pack here a few threads ago. Something like Teela, Orko, and Man-At-Arms in that black & red deco. I could see myself buying that to boost Anti-Eternia He-Man.
>>10620443>Night Stalker going on sale in the next couple months>everyone buys clearance Stridors to paint their own>Matty's face when
>>10621338Mattel shows off Night Stalker at SDCC, so he'll be going on sale in a few months.Meanwhile, Stridors are going on clearance at retailers. >>10620443 suggests buying a second Stridor to "repaint for Jitsu" (ie, repaint it as Night Stalker.)By the time Mattel puts Night Stalker out, people will have filled up on clearance Stridors to make their own Night Stalker to save themselves time and money.Mattel makes silly Beast Man face because they've made Night Stalkers that will not sell because everyone has already made their own for less.
>>10621380>people will have filled up on clearance Stridors to make their own Night Stalker to save themselves time and moneySomehow I think that's just wishful thinking.For one thing, do you know how to take Stridor apart, which you will most certainly have to do in order to paint over the whole friggin' toy? How many MOTU collectors have ever even painted a model kit? I bet most of them would just turn out the kind of repaint that would make the modeling general scream "THIN YOUR PAINTS" a lot.
>>10621453You're taking a silly joke way too literally.
Should we expect any new Origins reveals at New York Comic Con ?
>>10620599i dont want to rain on your parade anon but I cant see a pack like that selling well. AE Heman was a shelf warmer in his own right.
>>10621101Remember when they had Space Sumo on Mattel Creations for $18 at the same time Target had the box set with him + Flat Top Sun-Man and Pighead for $25?
Do you regret that guys on the left were never made?

>>10620438Scareglow is supposed to make people be afraid and shit their pants.
>>10621853We got keldor and ae, I'd buy another keldor in clothes though just to help show what skeletor looked like before. It's that mc tri klops that I'd want most.
>>10621950>his power is so potent he could even prevent Prince Adam from turning into He-manHis power was rad and also an enyojable part in the Netflix series.
>>10621853No the Keldor we got was much better and I don't get the German fascination with a universe of red and black evil repaints. I do regret not getting Wun-Dar though, I hope he comes back for sale at some point.
>>10621964Still holding out on a MC exclusive especially after He-Skeletor.

>>10622445It'd be cool if it happened, idk if mattel would make a new torso or just repaint prince Adam. But it'd sell through regardless if it was a mc .
Where the fuck do I display all this stuff?
>>10622966That's a question I ask myself every day>all figures in a cabinet and vehicles in a drawer between taking them out for taking pictures and shit because I don't have a space I can dedicate to setting up a permanent display
We eating good baby.
>>10622872In theory new head would be needed Anti-Keldor is clean shaved.
>>10622980I can't help thinking of the little girl playing with Screeech on the package as Mattel's wishful thinking. Should be a man between 25 & 45.
>>10622980I can't wait to open my Skeleton Warriors.

>>10622976I backed that Eternia thing and I am trying to figure out what the fuck I'll do with it.
>>10623219Leave it in the box in the back of your closet indefinitely
>>10622837I always appreciate when Flogg gets a good zinger in.
>>10623219>I backed that Eternia thing and I am trying to figure out what the fuck I'll do with it.I think if you open up CG and Snake Mountain and place them adjacent to the monorail edge, you need a surface 104 inches wide.Vintage version. Origins Eternia might be wider.
>>10623159That's so fucking cool, I agree with that one anon who said the face should be painted better in the nose and teeth.
>>10623594I'm gonna try painting mine myself when it arrives, and hope I don't fuck it up.It'll only be my second time trying to touch up an Origins...first time was when I painted Mantenna's teeth
>>10623614Show that Mantenna anon! If I didn't have hamhands I would try to paint my Scare Glow too, the paint around his torso and legs have rubbed off a bit since I like to handle him, plus I put him under hot water to loosen his knees and elbows.I'd also paint his nose and eyes better too, it seems the standard figure has poor paint around the face.
>>10623628Sure. This is him. For a first and only attempt, I don't think the end result is too bad
>>10623651Neat and cute, he's smiling

Friendly reminder that Slither goes on sale in a few hours.Who's buying one?
>>10624427I'm getting two, AND I fuckin voted for Snake Lair. Also her cape is 100% a pretool for Shokoti so that's very based. On her own she looks great, may attempt to paint some fangs on one of them.
>>10624427I think most of Slither is pretool for other toys.
>>10624476Other than the cape and trunks, what else is pretool?The arms and legs are reused from Teela and I can't think of anyone else that could use the head and torso. And the snake tail would require another brand new character so I wouldn't call that a pretool either since it's unique to her for now
>>10624486The tail is setup for another round of snake troop builders. The box shows a red snake with the cobra hood head.
If you're not a snake fan, Lady Slither could still make for a Sorceress equivalent for Snake Mountain.Like Grayskull has its bird lady, and Snake Mountain can have its snake lady
>>10624427Got my alarm set. Gonna walk off work at 10:55 or so, I may not secure one but I'll try.
>>10622966My stuff takes a whole shelf, plus overflow of the boxed stuff. I just had to put all the wwe stuff into storage. It's alot really if you've been into origins from the start. I don't even have greyskull since it'd just sit in a box.
Huh...Vykron is still available.Anyway, planning to try and get two Lady Slithers(Ladies Slither?).
when will they announce the poll results
>>10624491>Like Grayskull has its bird lady, and Snake Mountain can have its snake ladyThen a bird-faced playset with a skull lady!
Slither sold out literally almost instantly. Im so upset Ive been waiting for her for so long. How the fuck do you sell out in under 3 minutes
>>10624584She...hasn't gone up yet.
>>10624585my computer might be glitching then cause on my end it says sold out whenever i load up her page?
>>10624486Sharella? lower torso might be just generic female body.
>>10624610Her page still says 9am PT...noon EST. But the MOTU front page says sold out before you click on her.
>>10624617ok thank you, i feel really stupid lol
>>10624612Sharella has a fur bikini. She can't use Slithers torso, just the trunks
Well, I got myself a Slither.Not really even a snake fan, but I've been asking for some new villainesses to break up the monotony of only having Evil-lyn, and since I don't see them making that rocket broom witch I've been asking for anytime soon, Slither will have to scratch the itch
>>10624643I got two! In case my best friend who MC keeps misprinting his address on the shipping label with snakes fucks him over again.
>>10624571I would have hoped today.
Do you think we'll get a Skeletor like this for Origins?
>>10624643Got one too, had to stop in the middle of an oil change but I got one. Not a big snake person but king hiss needs an equal and slither looks good.
Oof, those jackasses claiming she would be up forever like Motherboard are in for a regret.
>>10624773That was their own stupidity. Origins ALWAYS sells out.Motherboard on the flipside is oversized even by Mastervetsr standards, Masterverse never sells out anyway and she's from a famously hated cartoon
>>10624773Does make me curious about number of units though. You'd think they'd have enough data to gauge interest by now and that wouldn't result in sell outs that were too quick.
>>10624705Way too bulky for Skeletor to be cheap. He-Man was at least done for a con set which gets its own budget for parts
>>10624773How long did she stay up for? I only bothered buying one this time, I usually double dip on MC Origins so hopefully nothing is wrong with her.
>>10624894An hour and 15 minutes, I heard
>>10624894Oh for fuck sake I forgot about this .... well shit
>>10624932I forgot about fang Orr. If that helps any. Total pain in the ass to stop everything at 10:58 just to be ready to try to get a toy.
>>10624773>>10624784I got her and she's ok. But yeah fuck revelation/revolution
>>10624894I stopped double dipping some time ago. So far no issues for me besides the occasional bit of paint app slop
>>10624960>revolutionDidn't even come out yet though..
>>10624974She was marketed for Revolution, even says so on the box.We already know its going to be a let down.
>>10624960I think I'd eventually like her, but right now, I don't really want her for her own merits, just as a companion piece to figures not even made yet (and might never get made).Her desirability is just gonna be "eh" until the others get announced
>>10624975>We already know its going to be a let down.Alright
>>10624643I got her too and its just now sinking in I spent over $40 on her
>>10625077If you're in the US, be grateful you only spent $40>Spent $75 once shipping and currency conversion applied I must be a fucking idiot
Passed because her skirt looks dumb
>get Sssqueeze and Snake Face in mail>already have Buzzsaw Hordak and Mosquitor>realize we're only a Blast-Attak away from being able to recreate "The Doors of Doom!" commercialGoddammit, now I'm gonna be even more impatient than I was before.https://youtu.be/z-zk_0xDBxo?si=F6GWWxd2SNMph5QF
>>10625093The skirt is on backwards in that picture.It looks like this when worn properly, if that makes a difference

>>10625204>GordonThe key to the Batros Signal
>>10625204Snek doing pushup ups
>>10625084Mattel Creations now charges me in my local currency. Plus GST.$140 roobucks.Cunts.
>>10625501That was for two Snake bitches plus postage.
What are your Terroar headcanons? If we go by classics lore and the snakes are amalgamations of DNA like it's Jurassic Park, I have to imagine Terroar is more dinosaurman than snake. Maybe his robot arm and legs are the result of him being blown up, too, like mecha Frieza.
>>10625619I really want to like this guy, but all I can see is a bluish-purple Whiplash with a Trap-Jaw arm. He has more mixed parts than someone as simple as Stinkor, yet somehow feels substantially less unique.
what the fuck? Bolt Man of all characters is super expensive too. Is this actually what they're going for, or is my region fucking up ebay results to only show a few?
>>10625619>>10625690This is something that fucks me up. He way obvious parts reuse than others and then as I try squinting and convince myself it's a new character like with rest of that wave, Classics bio suddenly tells me that this is intentional and that I'm suppose to see the parts reuse which double fucks with me.
>>10625690I wonder if Stinkor feeling more unique to you has to do with him actually having a unique gimmick, where as Terroar is basically "look, I ripped of Rattlor AND Trap Jaw's gimmick. Do you love me?"Maybe if he did something neither of the others could do, he'd feel less derivative. (maybe he actually was supposed to, idk how much background we have on the development of the vintage version)
>>10625122My priorities are Two-Bad, then Blast-Attak and Modulok then Rio Blast and Multi-Bot and I'm flexible about the rest.
>>10625993Hot take, but for me, Blast-Attak deserves to supercede even Two-Bad because he's the last missing piece in multiple display options:>as noted above, he's the last to remake the doors of doom>we have Scare Glow, Ninjor and Faker so he's the last to recreate Star Comics issue>we have Beast Man, Evil-lyn and aforementioned Ninjor so he's the last to recreate the Power Tour>we have Trap Jaw, Tri-klops and Whiplash if for some reason you want to recreate Revelations ep 2 with OriginsTwo-Bad by comparison, other than finishing 1985 villain roster doesn't really factor into any particular teams or line ups. Even in 200x, he mostly operated on his own afaikTherefore, Blast-Attak deserves to come first (he won't of course, but he should)
>>10625803That seems high, I usually only see mattel exclusives that high.
>>10625847From what I understand, Terroar was actually supposed to have his own unique gimmick as well in form of a toy squeaker similar to the one from fisher price's dino-roars line of plush toys
>>10626050>even when origins moves to MC they wont return the gimmicks
>>10626082What do you mean? Sy-klone, Extendar and Rokkon were all confirmed to retain the gimmicks.Or do you just mean Terroar specifically won't be given a voice box to mimic what his toy would've done if it never got cancelled?
>>10625619based terroar post.I always imagined him to be the snakeman medic in addition to being thr much more educated and well spoken older sibling to whiplash. Whiplash is a snakeman too but he went off and joined the evil warriors after learning the snakemen considered him an brutish idiot. Also I like to imagine Terroar sounds like Lou Tenant/Lieutenant from FO1 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8U9T8Z_Ayhw
>>10626089the latter, although Im still wary of Rio losing nis gimmick. If they did include Terroar's intended gimmick however I'd begrudgingly rush to try and snag one of MC.
>>10625072im happy to see your custom came together well anon
>>10626018I would still count 200X because we have every other vintage character that showed up in the series. Also, last (toy-based) Skeletor minion from Filmation (unless you count Modulok).He also appeared in numerous art teases. He's the last piece to recreate FF He-Man vs TC Skeletor artwork for example.
>>10625803I have never seen him in store and online stores do not have him instock at retail. I misses out on him and now Im just hoping he pops up at Big lots or Ollies like the Flying Fist and Claw Attack Skelly did. Those were also rare in stores.
>>10626018>>we have Scare Glow, Ninjor and Faker so he's the last to recreate Star Comics issueWhat is it with that comic that it's so often referenced? I dont recall people saying they want to do Return of Keldor or something.
>>10626185I can't speak for anyone else, but it's simply because it's the best piece of Blast-Attak vintage fiction we have. He actually has personality and is pretty funny.Compare thst to his minicomic where he barely talks and is more like an afterthought, or a slew of magazine or comic strip appearances that virtually nobody knows.
>>10626195Then saying we need him to recreate his comic is kind of self-fullfilling propecy, isn't it? Like saying that Strongarm is needed so we can recreate She-Demon episode.
>>10626198Not really? With Strongarm arm that episode is his ONLY appearance. The Star Comic isn't BA's only showing, it's just the best one
>>10626050Source pls. That would be amazing.
>>10626212I wish I could remember, but it made sense to me, considering his name and the unused cardback art seemed to make a deal out of the fact that he made a sound.
>>10626138Speaken of Ollies, my local store just put these out. Also had the original single card Skeletor, but it was $14.
>>10626254I wouldn't put stock in names.The names we use for them now were created by Scott or someone during Classics. Thry were unnamed in the material that they were discovered in with the sole exception of Strobo because he was actually in a random magazine comic from 88 or 89.
>>10626270YeahI remember even hearing story (can't remember where so I can't verify, take it however you want), that they were going to call Plasmar "Hot Shot" because he reused He-Ro's armor and they needed to explain the big H, but then Scott decided He-Ro's armor was too "special" to be reused so they slapped Laserlot's armor on him instead and went with a different name.
>>10625619I always wished he had a mechanical neck. I see him like Alpha from the MiB cartoon.
>>10626258My big lots has had Terror Claws for $15 for months. My Ross has a lot of the 2-pack for FOUR dollars...
>>10626339I picked this up along with stridor today. I didn't need stridor but the I could use the stand for the roton, which does not come with one for some stupid reason.
>>10626346Roton was too big to be viable for a stand without a raise in price. That's why it gets the red cage and alt faceplate
>>10626339CG-man was such a flop. i evem found Orko and Manny at the 99 store
Wtf slither is shipping?
>>10626200Yeah but you're saying that BA matters because of the comic that only matters because of BA.Lets for example say that Revelation has the best version of Scare Glow. Does that mean we need Andra figure for Origins to recreate his episode?
>>10624427Mattel just sent me a shipping notification for mine. That was quicker than usual.

Say we end up getting a MOTU beat-em up to cash in on the success of Shredder's Revenge. Who would be playable? Who would the bosses be?
>>10627633How many playable and bosses are we talking? That'll influence my answer.
>>10626729>>10627024>>10627035>>10627467>>10627543Thanks, guys. Glad you like>>10627062I actually have considered doing actual videos, lol.
>>10627633You'd need a lot of bosses to recreate the easily-pleased sense of joy I got from Tokka and Razhar from the movies and D-listers existing alongside the main 1987 villains in Turtles in Time and The Manhattan Project for NES.So if we assume 10 levels and you don't fight the Horde...Mer-Man (either a water level, or what makes fighting him different is that you're on stepping stones in the water and he pop-up attacks)Beast Man on GryphonTrap Jaw & Spikor in a smithy or the like (most fans would want Tri-Klops, but he'd be so boring)A Faker for each playerBlast Attak (does damage when he explodes, then the two halves tag-team you, a bit like Arcade Game Krang)Kobra Khan with sleep breath, gun, etc. (most fans would try to work at least King Hiss into the same level)Saurod & BladeEvil-LynSkeletor in multiple formsThat's 9 levels, 11+ bossesNot sure what would be next-most interesting. Webstor crawling on the walls and webbing you? Stinkor's stink harming you in melee range (would players even have ranged attacks?)? Scare Glow's scare seems hard to implement, Two Bad would be boring, Ninjor might be boring and Jitsu is worse, Trap Jaw can grapple like Clawful and do more besides, Whiplash would be too boring if we could do Rattlor and other Snake Men...Filmation villains are probably no-go. Draeg-Man? A vehicle fight where you're chasing Pig Boy with the Havoc Staff and Goat Man defends him?
If we're getting POP only in Filmation style, how much you would be upset over lost gimmicks? Anything else you would miss?
>>10627810All the PoP characters I want never had toys anyways.Unless you mean giving Razz a breast reduction. I would rage quit so hard that I would sell my Motu collection.
>>10627761>and you don't fight the HordeBut then you don't get a Hordak boss fight where he utilizes both Hurricane and Buzzsaw powers, and where's the fun in that? Even if he's the only Horde boss, you need a Hordak fight
>>10627810I just want to brushy
you know what would be neat? if ramen tkys came out with a bunch of origins compatible figures based on D list MOTU characters and concepts that would never have a chance appearing in origins otherwise. draegoman, goat man, mammoth man, witch lady, basically everyone vintage never got to and mattel is going to maybe make one or two exclusives out of.
>>10627751please make videos anon. dont let these brilliant posts fade into the sands of time.
>>10627633I thought the App game was ok.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLYTRvcclgQ
>>10627633But if go by wish and ideas:Playable:He-ManShe-RaTeelaRamManRobotoBosses:Beast ManMermanTrap-JawGrizzlorLeechSkeletorHordakHidden Boss:Kimg Hiss
>>10627633>Who would be playable?Presuming it'd be based on Filmation, Adam, Teela and Man-At-Arms would be locks for the core playable cast, but you still need a fourth. Orko feels more like the guy who shows up in the background to give you support goodies. Cringer is definitely a rideable. Maybe Ram-Man? I always vaguely got the notion he lives at the palace. He seems like he needs a minder.
>>10627865>Even if he's the only Horde boss, you need a Hordak fightGood point.
>>10627633I'm gonna go with some "out there" character choices.Aside from He-Man, playable characters will be picked based on "are we throwing a nod to fans of each era of the original line?" and "whos power/action features would result in the fun and unique fighting styles?"Playables will be Ram Man, Mekaneck, Sy-klone, Snout Spout and Sorceress.Maybe not the most popular choices, but Sy-klone with spin based moveset and Mekaneck using neck extension incorporated in his moves would be more fun to play than Duncan. And Sorceress would be a more fun token female than Teela or She-Ra because you could give her moves where she partially or totally transforms into a falcon, like maybe a super kick move where her foot turns into a talon when it connects
>>10628025Extendar would be strictly more (fun to play) than Mekaneck, though.
>>10628039Yeah, but since I set myself the "1 per era", I had to choose between him, Buzz Off and Fisto, and of those 3, Mekaneck would be the most fun imo.You're not wrong about Extendar at all, btw.
>>10627761To be fair Scare Glow would allow for a nifty “spooky” stage.
>>10628134that's the halloween dlc
Looks like spikor and sssquezzz wave is popping up in walmart.
>>10627633https://gamejolt.com/games/he-man/19434Just play this, it's free.
>>10628488Fuck is right, got spikor from bbts but I'd enjoy squeeze or even the whole wave if I saw them in person. Thankfully that will not happen.
Loving Slamurai. got him and snake mountain at Frank n sons the other day. Haven't opened mountain because I literally do not have space for it to go. :(
>>10628597So is slamurai really worth it? I have ninjor and he was a bright spot of that wave but budget and space concerns I'm just not sure if I want to spend $20+ on a repaint. On spending, I really wish I could've got two lady slither. I don't open the exclusive figures but damn she looks awesome. I just want her on my play area for months.
>>10628727>So is slamurai really worth it?I say yes, only because I love him personally. I dont have ninjor so i cant speak to the repaint situation but i do want him for the yin/yang type vibes.I love how white and clean slamurai is. and the nunchucks are sick. only thing is his skin color is a bit orange-y
>>10615553Lame. Off yourself kid.
A MOTU beat-em up would only really work if there's a fuckload of playable characters a la Castle Crashers.
>>10628966No. What you mean is a fighting game. You need alot of enemies to beat up for a beat-em up game.
>>10627937>ramen tkys came out with a bunch of origins compatible figures based on D list MOTU characters and concepts that would never have a chance appearing in origins otherwise. draegoman, goat man, mammoth man, witch ladyOf all those, surely Goat Man is too much of a low hanging fruit for Mattel to pass up on, right? Except for the head and possibly armor, everything can be reused from others
>>10629053>Of all those, surely Goat Man is too much of a low hanging fruit for Mattel to pass up on, right? Except for the head and possibly armor, everything can be reused from othersHow badly do we want Goat Man without his adopted son, though?
>>10629097Very badly.I loved the Golden Book decades before Revelation associated him with Pigboy, and I've already got literally everyone else already to go, just waiting for him so I can have them fight over dragon eggs
>>10628735I feel you on the white, it really pops the figure. I may just put him in a cart, if anything else I could pair him up with storm shadow for white ninja adventures.
>>10629097>>10629104Come on, boss. We can still go hunting for dragon eggs without Goat Man...NO! I DONT WANNA! IT WONT BE ANY FUN!
>>10629047>Skelton Warriors>Horseskull foot soldier>Dark beasts>Horde Troopers>Horde Bots>Any of the random creatures He-Man fought in the comics, books, cartoonAnd just add different color pallettes and move sets. I like how TMNT does their 1 foot soldier model in the new game. Wish the same developers would make a MOTU game.
>>10629104Same, it was fun to get him in MOTUC would love him in Origins, still don't give a fuck about pigboy.
>>10629137I just hope Origins would give him less of a derp face. I dunno what it is about the Classics face that I'm not a fan of. I think it's the mouth
>>10629132>I like how TMNT does their 1 foot soldier model in the new game. Wish the same developers would make a MOTU game.The different-colored Foot Soldiers in TMNT beat 'em ups have always been charming. I sure wish Mega Bloks had released their Fred Wolf/Konami sculpt in all those colors.
>>10629153Agreed actually, I still like him in MOTUC even with the snarling face but if he makes the Origins run it would be cool to get something closer to >>10629104 this time.
>>10629104I've always liked that Whiplash variant and would happily pick him up if MC sold him. I know the focus is shifting to filmation versions but I hope we still get a few variants from the old mini-comics, concept art, and golden books. There all great sources to pull from. I still really want a magenta mini comics Faker, such an easy repaint c'mon Mattel!
>>10629302Mattel gave the impression in a Q and A with adultcollector that non-Filmation and non-vintage options would still be happening in Origins, so at least SOMETHING will get mixed in
>>10627810Most of POP gimmicks are minimal (Frosta's spinning staff) or just odd (Bow's heartbeat) and even when they play to their powers they feel a bit off (Mermista shoots water from her necklace, Perfuma makes flower emerge from her backpack-cannon-thing). They're not as integrated into their designs like many motu characters who just can't be imagined without their gimmicks like MEF or Extendar. If you told someone they were originally cartoon characters and then toy designers tried to figure out how to give those characters' figures gimmicks, they would believe that. I guess Double Trouble"s gimmick (if they would make her) feels important but those 2 faces so underwhelming even that feels questionable.So who needs theirs...Mermista needs swappable fish tail. Entrapta could use articulated hair. Netossa's cape hopefully looks at least a little decent at a net weapon. So I'd say the only character who would be likely screwed is Spinerella.
>>10629455I don't know how many POP collectors exist, but it'd be a dick move to them for Spinnerella to be anything but vintage recreation with more articulation. She's significantly rarer than Netossa and the other 1987 figures, selling for as much incomplete or with repro accessories as the 1988 MotU Laser figures do complete.
>>10629500She could even have her original gimmick since it's a separate accessory, like Clamp Champ.
>>10629500General impression I get from PoP collectors is they don't give two shits about the vintage line, they just want cartoon accuracy, so I can see them being fine with no gimmicks as long as it's filmation
>>10626519Seeing how expressive Skeletor, it's a real shame that He-Man heads arent nearwhere close to that. He basically has neutral, kinda angry and kinda angry open mouth.
>>10629616And I swear to fucking god, if they finally do make an actual happy he-man face, it better not be "le ebin may-may heyeahyeahyeah" face
That's a very cool gun you've got there, Frog Monger.
