  • Slime Pit

    Slime Pit was easily my favourite vintage MotU playset when I was young, so I'm hoping that Mattel would at some point give us a MotUC version of the playset. I seriously do hope that it does come with slime that looks similar to the vintage version of the slime we got with vintage slime pit, and that extra buckets of slime will be available for purchase on Matty. I think it would be a rather easy playset to make, and I don't think it needs to be more than $80 (the same as the Wind Raider). What do you guys think? Do you think we will get one? How much would you pay for it? Should it come with the MYP Slime monster, or should that be a separately carded figure?

    In order to attract more customers in the same way that the Sky Sled did, I think it would be best to include an action figure. To me, the best figure to include would be the "Slime Monster He-Man" from the 80s mini-comic.

      I want that green rock dude and the pink rock woman. Hmm... guess I know what to do with my spare Rokkon!

    I never had it when I was a kid, but I welcome every vintage playset we can get. And Captain Atkin is right, if they include Slime Monster He-Man, it would make this playset a lot more desirable.

      Slime Monster He-Man? Wow, what a cool idea! But would they make him an all green translucent He-Man, or would they actually put some coin into the sculpt?... Like a new monster head like the pic above.

        They better put in a new head at least...

      Slime Pit and the MYP Slime Monster should be released, preferably together. It would be a smaller, more affordable playset. And I'd like a can of slime with it too !

      No interest at all in a slime pit He-Man, though... but a 200X slime pit mutant would be very welcome !

        I am down for a Slime Pit. "Slime-Pit-Man" does not have to necessarily be He-Man - he can just be a random dude, but he needs to be translucent green with drippings.

        It would be nice if it did not break the bank too.

          I never had the Slime Pit, but from pics I've seen... it looks like the entire playset revolves around the concept of pouring slime all over a figure. Since it is unlikely Mattel will include slime with it, is it really worth making?

            Slime is easy to make and costs next to nothing to produce. Mattel would probably charge an extra $7 per Slime Pit to send you something that cost them pennies to produce. From a profit standpoint, they would be foolish not to include it.

          Have it come with a "smokeless cigarette" attachement so that vapor can shoot through over the figures instead of slime. When done playing, you can then enjoy a nice vapor electronic cigarette. The box art could be "old-timey", like those old boxes of the Red Ryder BB Gun where the kid is smoking Pall Malls and killing squirrels.

          What a great oppurtunity for cross promotion. PLUS - With enough "HE-POINTS" you can order a mail-in Slime Pit tray to make your own Jello-Shots.

            It doesn't need to work. Slimepit would be awesome. And I would take Slime Monster He-man..OR...Army builder 200x Slimepit mutants.

              I'd be down for this. Slime pit is great. You can get TMNT slime if it didn't come with any.

                Do you guys think the Slime pit should look like the vintage version?

                  Yes. The classic Slime Pit is iconic.

                  So iconic that Mattel reused it in at least two other toylines--King Arthur and the Knights of Justice, and Harry Potter. The latter had some mold changes, but you could recognize it easily.

                I'd love a Slime Pit that looked like the vintage one.
                I'd also love a translucent green slimed He-man, or the 200X Slime Pit Monster.... but the only problem with that would be I'd want to army build them, which would be tough to do if one comes with a slime pit (therefore that's the more likely scenario of the two that Neitlich would choose).
