  • A 200X Mini-sub in 2015?

    Seen on Facebook:

    You know what, since Scott is going to make a huge message I am too- If people get the sub to go through for 2015 the incentive will be the mini-sub for 200x going on sale in February, but that's only if the sub goes through for this last year. I don't work for Mattel so there's no backlash that can happen to me. There you go everyone, no more speculation and now you know what you'll get.

      Someone who has links to the toy industry, but then there are plenty of those on Facebook! He has greater than 50% accuracy about these things usually, so it may be true. Feel free to discuss the message though, not he source.

      I just wanted to know that he/she wasn't just a regular fan who allegedly has an inside info, but then again the person has 50% accuracy, not much to rely on his/her predictions!

    I'd love to get a 200X Mini-sub. It was sad to see King Miro and others didn't make it in the .org polls. This could be a chance to get him anyway.

    My wants:

    1. Calix
    2. Evil Seed
    3. Prahvus
    4. King Miro
    5. Captain Randor/Battle Armor Randor
    6. Battle Armor Queen Marlena

    Of course I'd also love to get an official "Ceratus", but I could always build my own thanks to Kevin Kosse.

      Good picks. I'd even say throw in a Tuvar and Baddrha two pack as the sub exclusive. That'd be awesome. Likely never happen, but still awesome.

      Some good selections, although I think the 2 variants would be less desired than original characters.

    While I love having a 200X mini-sub at one point, however I won't let this rumor (or fact) be my reasoning on why I should buy the main 2015 sub. Plus I'd rather see a vehicle sub at this point.

      200X? No thanks. If this is the final year they should have a vote and make the 6 or 7 most demanded figures, no matter which faction or era they're from.

        They should focus on NA in my opinion.
        But if true, I'm happy for 200x fans.

          Yep, finishing vintage NA is way more important than 200x IMO. Stupid move.

            Why is that?
            As I recall back in the day, I've witnessed way more visible 200X fans were online than NA ones, probably to this day. Plus MYP is a lot more popular than NA of He-Man.

            I said IMO.

            I like NA much more than 200X.

        • #8
          That would be a good idea since 200X has so many characters that so many people want. I my self would prefer a Powers of Grayskull sub more then anything else, but eh, whatever. The ones I want THE MOST would be...

          Veena
          Oracle
          Horde Wraith
          Evil-Seed
          Prahvus
          <strike>Snake Armor He-Man</strike>
          Captain Randor (At least his Helmet & shield)
          Miro

            I just want to complete Randor's council. So queen andreenos. And the female avion. Ceratus if they want a cheap repaint. Prahvus who is immensely popular

              To complete the council wouldn't you need King Tauros and the not named Centaur guy? Wasn't Stingrad with Buzz off and the Queen? Do you not care about the entourage and background characters as much?

            The worst thing for me about 200X is the worst thing I've ever seen about MOTU ever (aside from Baby Skeletor) and that's Figure Skater Armor... er, Snake Armor He-Man. Seriously, I bought Martial Arts He-Man regardless of how stupid he looked just to get a Moss Man, and I like that design better than I ever did of Snake Armor. I'm not for or against a 200X minisub, but I'm certain we'll all have to wait and see.
            I make my own MOTU video games. Wanna see?

              Since this thread got bumped, have you changed your mind since seeing him?

              There was that one photo where he had the armor on the wrong arm on display. Probably just an accident, but reading this again made me think of that.

              Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you, Shawn. I'm still not a fan of the exposed shoulder. That's all. Aside from the original design of the armor, my only problem with the MOTUC version is the Justin Bieber hair. At first, I didn't like the martial arts avenue they were taking with the variants until they had an explanation for them in the cartoon like with the Samurai stuff and the mechanized battle suits. Ambrosia variants for Tri-Klops and Evil-Lyn would've been cool. Looks like we'll never get those either.

              No Worries. I think We all miss stuff and take breaks from this community

              I understand your reasons better now. I'd certainly welcome more concepts on the Snake Armor theme. A fully covered one would look great. A less covered one with Longer hair would look like KG's Snake Armor I liked Battle sound Skeletor, though i HATED "Ambrosia armor" It's clearly armor designed to look like Hordak's face! MYP didn't get that being so early in the production of the series. I HATED the Samurai Armor, but really liked The Legacy Stones and Anwat Gar. Incandescently, my nephew who was around the targeted age liked them, they where his favorites and one of the few toys he has kept into adulthood. He loves Ninjas and stuff to this day, who doesn't? SO I did "play with" them and they did grow on me. I'd buy them again if the 4HM designed them based of the Cartoon look. Whatever the armors that Sortech guy created where called though...Burn them with Skeletor's blue fire armor The 200X variants are SOOOO hit & miss. Sometimes a good story can make you like something you wouldn't otherwise, so long as they understand what it is they are telling a story about!

            I'm the exact opposite. I loved the Snake He-man armor and was really annoyed it never saw a U.S. release (as I understand it was European release only) It was the 2000X series that caused me to look into Masters of the Universe again. If there was a 2000X sub line I would be all over that especially if a Snake Armor He-man was offered (I really don't want to pay the insane Ebay prices for the original figure)

                I never understood their appeal. They seam so generic to me. What is it about them that you like? I hope you get your wish, but I don't think it's going to happen. Megator and Tytus didn't seam to sell very well. I was shocked to see them make Procrustus, though I'm glad they did as he felt less generic looking. Besides that in the sense of the lore he is very important. The ABC giants never really did much with all that screen time I feel.

                Although they didn't have a major impact on the story other than the common battle entertainment, to me they add more of the traditional mythological fantasy aspect to the line, plus they are colorful and cool to look at, and I liked their appearance in the MYP cartoon... On the other hand I never understood the appeal of the other boring Filmation characters that people kept asking for!

                Those are excellent points! You've actually made me want them more then I did before. Regarding boring Filmation characters, I'm sure I fall into that category. Malaktha right? I think it comes down to what a person is into. I like ancient history and archeology, therefor I want Malaktha. Maybe because of him is the reason I like ancient history and archeology?

              I would love to see a proper 200x-style He-Man, Skeletor, and She-Ra.

                200X appeals to me a little more than NA at this point.

                for NA I would love to see ARTILLA, SAGITAR, LIZOR and HOOVE.

                  I think in a fight between NA vs 200X, that NA for me wins for me because, even though it had twice as many episodes, it has less "important" characters to make. MYP and MVC packed A LOT of cool looking characters into the stories. The Council of Elders/Wisdom alone is like 25 people. That's including barbarians & Mystic variations of the Elders. 200X will NEVER be "complete" where as NA COULD be.

                  one thing I don't anybody requesting is MVCreations characters. I wonder if it is because we just accept that it isn't going to happen? I for one would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have

                  "The Nameless One" and "the one who is unnamed" LOL





                  I can see some clever parts reuse out of a Horde Wraith. Or if Mattel was adventurous and let the 4HM work with the experts in dolls, they could have some nice fabric robes and capes. If Sorceress and King Grayskull has cloth capes all the gnashing of teeth wouldn't have happened because they would have been able to sit

                  Pack ins like Staff of Avion and ZodaK head...

                    even though i would rather get more NA, if they do a sub i don't want more damn variants. we are already getting he-man & hiss variants. i don't want marlena & randor variants.

                      Can live with a King Miro, Prahvus, Evil Seed & Veena.Would like to get MVC Skeleton Warriors, but i guess that wont happen.

                          That's a good point about Miro being Marzo's counterpoint...I never really saw them life that before because of my Filmation blinders!

                          You mean Horde Wraith as sub only like Lighthope? I'd be ok with that, as I would probably want them all anyway.
