No MOTU 200X Style Figures In The MOTUC Line
MOTU: Jay Cochran - 2009.07.09
The folks at Mattel have released the following statement about their Masters of the Universe Classic line and the type of sculpting style you can expect to see through out the course of the line:

A lot of fans have been posting online wish lists and remarks about the style of MOTU Classics. While we did say in some recent Q & As that we will look at the 2002-2004 line for influence, I want to clear up any confusion about the look of the figure sculpts inthe Classics line.

The hyper detail 2002 look is has been "retired". You won't see any hyper stylized figures in the Classics line. But what you will see is figures from the 2002 series done in "Classics" style (such as King Grayskull). If a character had unique armor or weapons in the 2002 series, we will look at finding ways to bring that into the Classics line, but we won't, for example, be doing a "2002 Hordak" as we already included his 2002 staff with the current figure. 2002 Hordak and Classics Hordak is the same character, just sculpted in a different style.

The style behind the Classics line is that these are figures based on the look and feel of the original MOTU 1981-1987 line but with today's modern articualtion and detail. We will look at doing POP, NA and "200X" figures in the Classics line, but they will be done in the same style as other Classics figures, not in the hyper detail look of the 200X line.

We know there are a lot of fans of the 2002-2004 line out there. And one day we may go back and do a new line of figures in this style. But the Classics line is an all new line, unrelated to the look of the 2002 - 2004 line. We have some really great figures in the wings waiting to be shown off at SDCC. Although not every fan will get exactly what they want, their are some

Eh, I don't care about the styling as long as they start making more unique figures. Teela is a step in the right direction, but we need guys like Kobra Khan and the Snakemen, Roboto, Leech and the rest of the Horde, Ram-Man, Buzz-Off, Man-E-Faces, etc. Until we start getting figures like th... read more

Excuse me, but how did anyone think we were gonna get 200x figures in this line? I thought it was clear from the beginning that the most we'd get were 200X elements done in the classics style. Lots of Orgers are surprised at this....i'm taking this as something we already knew.

So basically, if it happens it just won't have the "Classics" name. That's what I'm taking from it, not that it's impossible.
