Yes, there's been issues, hiccups, broken promises and some seriously outrageously stupid mistakes (how many times can you put a figure's solders on backwards?!?) but all in all, this has been one of the best US toy lines in recent memory.
Regardless of anything else, you can see the care and thoughtfulness in how each figures is designed, executed and produced.
With the line winding down into its last years Mattel has decided to focus on more fan demanded characters in order to complete the main cast of the MOTU, Princess of Power and Filmation cast.
The only regular subscription character shown here is Rio Blast. The others-- from Princess of Power-- are going to be part of a new sub-subscription called "Club Etheria".
There will also be a POP 2-Pack featuring corny characters from the cartoon-- Loo-Key and Kowl-- that will be available to early access subscribers and then, like Spirit of Hordak, will pop up from time to time for regular customers.

Mattel also showed this odd but interesting Skeltor figure. Unlike the Classics line which updates the original figures to today's toy standards, this Skeletor looks like a direct recreation of the original figure. And, it appears to be fairly over-sized.
There was no info on this figure at Toy Fair other than Mattel was asking for people's input on it.
