  • What do you think the MOTUC "Surprise" is for later this year?

    Catra's Wrath over at mattycollector had this to say regarding someone's question, asking if there will be any surprises in store...

    "Toy Guru said before he left that there's a surprise later in the year!"

    So... what do you think it will be?

    The surprise might be: I'm back bitches, and the Son of He-Man is upon your sorry asses wether you like or not! Muhahaha...

        Point Dread and Talon Fighter would be my guess too.

            I don't know what it will be, but I'm 100% certain it will be poorly made and overpriced!

              I think the surprise will be Dare. CW said it was Neitlich who said it after all. That delusional prick thought The Unfortunate One was a love letter to the fans, he thought Nepthu was highly demanded, so I can see him thinking the release of Dare would be a wonderful and welcome surprise for us fans..... because he's got his head so far up his own ass, that he'd think his pet project would be a surprise we all want.

                  What I want it to be: Point Dread / Talon Fighter

                  What it will be: Dare or Skeleteen

                      Maybe because they're too lazy to edit it out, or kept it so the nutlickers won't complain!

                    He stated that the end of the line figure would be Dare long ago on Roast Gooble, unless that changed in time. So as some surmised, it may be Point Dread w/ Talon Fighter to push that Grayskull inventory... OR... maybe it will be a villain vehicle like the Roton which was featured in the DC Comic?

                        I'm sure it will be the Talon Fighter. My wish though is for it to be the Roton!

                            Some guy on the org and on another forum who claims to have some sources at Mattel said it was going to be the TF/PD. Not sure how reliable that is.

                          I don't see a Snake Mountain coming, especially when they have hundreds of Castle Grayskulls that aren't selling for obvious reasons. And if they did actually make one, It would be a clamshell design just like the vintage one... which was terribly designed and should have been more like the Sectaurs Hyve IMO.

                            But how much profit did they actually make on the Castle Grayskull? I remember some industry people on the Org crunching numbers back in the day and they were blowing my mind with actual stats and comparable products on how much they are actually ****** us.

                            If it is $8 out the door for a MOTUC figure, boxed and shipped to the port from China and Mattel does not even make something if they can't get their 33% PROFIT minimum, imagine how much they make off vehicles and playsets.

                            If they really lost their asses on the Grayskull sets, that should have been the end of the line. They are still on the website for full price, and were not on sale for Cyber Monday.

                            I would not be surprised if they have money fights in the warehouse from selling $100 Battle Rams.

                          I kind of hope they don't do a snake mountain. I'm not in the mood to shell out $300 for another big playset. But if they made one, I'd probably feel the need to buy one. If they don't make one, I won't feel like I needed to have one. I'm okay with just Grayskull

                            I kinda hope they do, but at the same time I fear that it'll be just like the vintage one (smaller than CG) just to "keep it at a similar pricetag as the Castle". IF they do Point Dread, I hope it's for UNDER $100 with the Talon Fighter. (NO FIGURE NEEDED HERE)

                            If Snake Mountain is a no go, then I'd like to see Slime Pit.

                                I hope to hell they don't make Snake Mountain. I'm done with this line after 2015. If they make it, I won't buy it. Simple as that. I've just had enough at this point.

                                  Why you'd hope they won't make it when you already have decided not to buy it anyways?... Some of us care for the vintage playsets and vehicles much more than the junky figures they've been shoving down our throats you know!

                                    I am buying 2 Snake Mountain's and I want the line to end too, BUT if they want to give me Skeletor's playhouse and go out with a bang,I'm IN!

                                    I hope they don't make it because then I might be compelled to waste my money. If it never materializes, this never becomes an issue.

                                    Draego, that's what a thought. You know me that I feel the way same somehow if the line continues because I'm also sick of it as well, however when I signed up for this, vehicles and playsets were on my most wanted lists even though most people don't feel the same way towards them.

                                  It was bcrduke that gave the hint with this cryptic post:
                                  It's getting closer...

                                  Yesssss... Only two weeks or so.

                                  Start saving your pennies.
                                  He does have an excellent track record, and he's never been a Neitlich cheerleader either. Too bad he's not a member here, although the "POP first above all else" agenda can get tiresome....

                                  Now, if you want to know for sure the he's correct, just wait for Neitlich to call him out and accuse him of lying. Last time I remember that happening bcrduke said Frosta was less than a week away from being revealed (which she was), and everyone's favorite Brand Manager immediately went on the defensive and called him a bold faced liar. lol
                                  Afterwards, no apology ever came form Neitlich, to the surprise of no one.....

                                    Just hearing bcrduke brought into this discussion has me anticipating that Snake Mountain could be closer to reality than we thought.

                                    Oh my gosh!

                                    No apologies about it! I still love this line! One of my best memories of the past few years was opening my Castle Grayskull with my little daughter. She was only a few months old when it came out, but now? She's ready to play, play, play!!!

                                  BCRDuke has a long history of being right on with hints like this. I'd tend to believe him. Once or twice he's hinted at characters that weren't revealed until months and months later.

                                  Of course an apology would have been at the very least a very respectful, honest thing to do. I remember the Frosta thing and there were a lot of other people who should be apologizing to BCRDuke about their behavior towards him, not just Scott. I remember a lot of "Shut up or you'll killin the linez" type of posts. The guy doesn't *have* to throw the hints out there, and I'm glad to see now with someone gone, there seems to be a much more positive and appreciative response to his hints. Besides, when did Scott ever show respect to ***anyone***, frankly? The only people he showed respect to was those who had more "power" than him in some way: All the "loyalty" BS he put into the bios, clearly aimed at Matty higher ups to show his "loyalty" to the company; once he saw how popular Pixel Dan's videos were, he started sucking up to him; Geoff Johns getting to design a MOTU figure, it goes on and on. And where did it all get him? A job at another company and all that sucking-up a moot point, a useless venture. Usually people call this type of person a "ladder climber" and I have to deal with these types of personalities all the time at work. They read Forbes or posts on CNNMoney and just follow every "Top 10 List to Success" they post, in completely selfish and inappropriate ways. What these type of personalities usually forget is taking this type of mentality- getting personally ahead at all costs- is not the secret to a long, respected career. It is usually the key to having a very short career, which might be extremely profitable for a couple of years, but as with any falsehood usually the dishonesty is uncovered, and the profits quickly end. This type of success usually does not last.
                                  Depending on the size and design of a Snake Mountain playset, I'd be up for one. Grayskull really does take up a HUGE amount of room in the house (especially when displayed opened) and I'd prefer to have something more Filmation and "tall" rather than "long" or "wide" like Grayskull. While I don't "hope the line ends" because while I might not want very many more figures, there are a lot of folks who are completists and want *everything* including and especially a MOTUC Snake Mountain. While I might not get one, I know a lot of folks would love both- and a lot of people would love a third Eternian Tower set to "complete" the effect, or a Fright Zone, Crystal Castle, etc.

                                  But Point Dread/Talon Fighter? I'm all over that in a heartbeat.
