    Your right,Mattel will never license another company or studio to make Motu,They know it's a money spinner
    Any new line whether a re-run of vintage or maybe a 3+3/4 line would have to have major changes for me not least the brand manager and his sales tactics,if he was at the helm of another Motu line i would defo be buying through the second market.

    Definitely. If this was Mattel's baby, not only would Neitlich force himself into running the show, but the prices would be astronomical... it would basically be what we are dealing with now with MOTUC, scams, scare tactics, overpriced shipping and product, etc. A company like Zica or even if the 4H did it, it would be a better thing.

    Mattel will NEVER let anyone else near the property though, I'm sure of it.

    Yeah... I bet you LIEguru would like to make HIS continuation of the vintage line, so it would give some kind of "justification" for all the monstrosities he wants to see in MOTU and in MOTUC... NO WAY !!!

    I would'nt buy a continuation made by Mattel. Mattel is only the shadow of what it was in the 80's, and their aggravations towards the fans made me very angry. But if a caring, competent business would produce a continuation of this line, I'd probably buy it provided the quality is present.

    Yeah, I think the weird leg issue is one of the most difficult parts about displaying a vintage MOTU collection. Nearly all of mine on display are figures like Orko, Gwildor, or Blade who have more solid legs or they're on vehicles.

    I wouldn´t start collecting Vintage-esque figures. Not again. I had a HUGE collection and sold everything. 70+ carded figures, dozens and dozens of boxed vehicles and playsets... Everything gone. I would not start collecting these again. But I would certainly see other collectors jumping on that wagon and buying vintage inspired toys.

    Mini-Comics would be must-haves in a vintage line, for sure.

    I would totally buy a new vintage-style line that produced non-released concepts. That sounds like a dream come true for me. I don't think it will ever happen but I would love it if it did.

    Interesting, I didn't know about this... for I have never collected the commemorative line

    This is a comparison picture that He-Bro took of the feet from vintage BA He-Man and commemorative BA He-Man. Mattel made an effort to make sure that collectors would be able to tell the difference between vintage and commemorative versions. As was mentioned above, I think if they drilled holes in the feet of new vintage figures for stands, it would be enough to distinuish them from the originals.

    Those two would definitely need to be made again for a redux line!

    I was just thinking... there would need to be a re-release of Laser Power He-Man and Laser Lite Skeletor. Of course they would need to be distinguishable from the extremely rare ones from the vintage line.

    It would be nice if they came with mini comics too

    That is a fantastic idea!! POP figures made in the same style as Teela and Evil-Lyn would be wonderful

    That´s a great idea, I would buy every single figure if comes with the original art.

    I would be all over a continuation of the old line. It would be great to finally get He-Ro and Eldor in the old style. I would also like to get a proper Green Goddess and Sherella. I would also be up for some NA figs in the old style.

    C'mon, how about a vintage release of Goretusk, Crab-man, Brainman, Glob, Fear-ro, Hand-some, ecc? I'd kill a Scott to have it!

    Good call on the FFHM leg joints. I didn't even know they were different until I read that... then took a look at my FFHM and was amazed! They should have done that from the start.

    I am a BIG fan of the Commemorative MOTU line that was released in 2001. I would love to see that line brought back again, with "new" characters like Queen Marlena, Eldor and Fearless Photog made in the vintage style. Figures who were never made in the 1980s would be a big draw for me, if done in the vintage style. It would also be cool to see some of the New Adventures characters made in the 1980s style as well.

    Upgrades that could be made to "vintage style" figures would be peg holes under their feet for stands, and getting rid of the rubber part that held the figures legs together, as those degrade over time. Something like what was used to connect the legs on vintage Blade, Terror Claws Skeletor, and Flying Fists He-Man would be an improvement.

    You bet I'd be interested! I'd buy everything done that way, especially previously unproduced characters, I'd say I'd sink into debts to have it all!
