  • The 2016 line poll (an unofficial poll at Mattycollector.com)

    Click here to visit Mattycollector.com and let Mattel know what you want to see in a potential 2016 Masters of the Universe Classics line!

    From Catra's Wrath:
    Hey He-fans, She-Ravers and Grayskulls (those who love it all), here's your chance to say what you'd like to see in a potential 2016 Classics line. This is an unofficial poll, so don't take the results as anything literal that you might see if we can get to a potential 2016 line, this is just for fun.

    The last poll I ran on these boards a couple of years ago had some very interesting results, for example 92% of the fans who voted wanted a Filmation sub, and now 2 years later, we've had one! That's not to say the poll influenced Mattel's decision to do one, but it is a great way to gage fan desires and speak up about what would keep you collecting past 2015.

    These questions are by no means all encompassing, MOTU is such a huge and expansive brand, it would be impossible to list every branch, name, character or storyline within one poll, it's just that large, but hopefully we can identify some key factors that would keep interest alive so we can all keep this line going.

    Because the poll would go on forever if there were multiple choices, some questions allow you to vote for your second or third choice. In other cases, feel free to post your other wants in the thread below.

    Cast your votes and let's hear your desires for a potential 2016 line! It's just for fun remember, so let's have fun with it.
    The following questions are included in the poll at Mattycollector.com:

    1. Toy Guru's focus is to tie up the remaining vintage MOTU and POP characters by the end of 2015. Once the vintage figures are done do you intend to continue collecting the Classics line if it could continue?
    a. Yes i'm in it until the very last figure.
    b. Maybe, I'd have to see what figures were on offer.
    c. Yes but only if I could complete the New Adventures characters.
    d. No way, i'm only in it for vintage characters.

    2. What is your priority in terms of character selection in the line from this point moving forwards?
    a. Getting to as many unreleased characters as possible

      You're reading the results wrong. It's actually Stridor in first place. It's confusing but the total votes is above the name, not below.

      Mini-comics is probably referring to the mini-comics that came after the Alcala comics, and probably includes POP, NA, and Toyguru's new mini comics. To me, it seems pretty strange that they would differentiate one artist's work from all the other comics, as all of the mini-comics have had their own styles over the years.

      I guess it could also mean the new mini-comics that come with the MOTUC figures? Man, they can't even be clear about this. Ridiculous.

    I went and voted on the poll. I didn't think they would include any 1987 movie choices, but they did include the movie Troopers, and I think that is worth voting for. I really want those troopers from the 80s movie made for army builders. If they used the Standor armour, like they did for these cool customs, I would be totally cool with that.

      Star Sisters (toy versions) 3 pack ???

      ​Are they ****ing serious? Why would they even include that on the SDCC list? Are they trying to piss off the fan base? Do they not know how much anger that would bring if they ever released something like this???

      Look, I would love to get the Star Sisters in their original colors. I really would. But they would need to be rebuilt from the ground up. Jewelstar was the worst female MOTUC figure ever made. They would have to make a new one completely from scratch, with a body and face sculpt, before I would ever buy one. As well, I DON'T want a Star Sisters 3-pack. If they ever do re-release those figures, they should just release them individually.

        I don't think you should worry about the Star Sisters 3 pack. If people really don't want this pack, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

          I was just shocked that they would list that as a choice at all. I found it rather... insulting. I think it does show though where their minds are at, in regards to repackaging stuff to sell to us.

          There whole point is to insult fans. TG is a troll and Mattycollector.com is a troll too. I can't vote in the poll because I'm banned from that website because I once asked a legitimate question. Treating customers this way is disgusting, they are utter and total scumbags.

        This Poll is very thorough, but in the end, these decisions will be up to one person, and the roster will look how he sees fit. While I've been waiting for Tung Lashor (toy or Filmation) Dragstor, Evil Seed, Vultak, Dylamug, Saurod and various other Filmation favorites, and desired vintage releases, we've been getting Scoots little babies from his little toy box. I understand that characters like "Illumina" have a following (I don't get why, because the character does nothing for me), even her very vocal fanbase has been passed over for Sir Laser Lots and Spectors.

        I will continue to support this line through fans, by buying/trading, and helping those I can, but not directly through Mattel. I've been burned too many times.

        Scoot has never replied to a single message I have sent him (regarding legitimate customer service issues), suggestions, and even a one time apology for all the awful things fans say about him. I figured if I appealed to him, I might get some feedback. Nothing.

        Honestly, this Poll is a farce.

          The poll's purpose is to give the current brand manager an "out". Note that it very specifically mentions the things that he wants - the things that make his mark on the brand. When he puts Son of He-Man and Skeleteen and whatnot into production, he can point to this poll (its numbers doubtless skewed, much as when Geldor "won" the fan's choice poll 24 hours before it actually ended) and say "But this is what the majority wanted!"

            Agreed. He purposely placed the SOH options in to gauge interest. I would think the interest to be marginal at best, but as we are coming near the end of the line, any support would justify production for him.

            Honestly, I hope his SOH does get made, and either A as exclusives that I simply don't care about. The die hards/completists can have it., or B as regular items that just don't sell. Mind you, with lowered quotas, that could still be considered success in his eyes.

            Its really not even worth thinking about. Just buy what you want, and ignore Scoot's brain children.

            I've voted however, I think our inputs won't have much effect on what's in TG's air head!... I have a feeling that the Son-of-He-Man crap will find its way into the production line whether we like it or not.

        • #9
          Note how Stridor is now considered a vehicle rather than a beast. What a bloody joke. This also gives TG a way out. We will get Stridor and Night Stalker, and then he'll pat himself on the back and say "see I got you more vehicles", which will really just be beasts at marked up prices.

          Also no Attack Trak = FAIL!!!

            Until this day, I'm not sure whether the mechanical horses are considered vehicles or beasts! The same goes for Spydor and such.
            Also I'm not too happy about the vehicle poll, why there is no mentioning of the full Battle-Ram and Attak-Trak?

            Definitely kind of weird to add the bubble carriage but not the attak-trak.

            I'm kind of split whether or not to call the horses beasts or vehicles, too. I mean, they're mechanical, but isn't Stridor supposed to be a cyborg or something?

            Shawn: They were originally designed for the scrapped TDK game 'Defender of Grayskull,' and later appeared in the MVC comics, so Emiliano didn't design them, but redrew them (which is now the only publicly available high-quality, fully-detailed artwork featuring them) for the comics.

            AdultCollector... I signed up for a Mattycollector account 6 days ago, and I still haven't been approved. It is impossible for me to vote. As a forum member on that site, you might want to send the Matty Moderators a message, and tell them that many people are unable to vote because their new accounts haven't been approved by them. Having to wait over 6 days to access their forums seems a bit much.

                  Not just that, but based on Neitlich's comments regarding SDCC Hordak & Imp, he doesn't give a shit what we think/want anyways. As long as 'his team' is proud of what's coming next, that's all that matters......

                    Sometimes I wish the subs won't go through, and get the most important characters left on DOS and call it a day. And then introduce some of the important elements like the vintage vehicles and playlets and what not through pre-orders.

                        LOL, it felt more like a survey, right?

                      Mattel needs to create an official feedback survey of some sort.

As a forum member on that site, you might want to send the Matty Moderators a message, and tell them that many people are unable to vote because their new accounts haven't been approved by them. Having to wait over 6 days to access their forums seems a bit much.
                        I left two messages on their forum saying that this was an issue, and asked how long it takes new members to get approved. Catra's Wrath ignored my post and left a message just one down from mine encouraging members to get their friends to vote. I just shake my head in disbelief. For anyone waiting to become a member on that forum to place a vote, I wouldn't hold your breath.
