MOTUC Q&A's From Around the Net (9/1/2013)
MOTUClassics.Com Asks: While we appreciated the sentiment behind how the Spirit of Hordak was sold, the way he was released might’ve done more harm than good. If a chase figure were to happen again, would you release it any differently so that more figure would get into more fan’s hands quicker?
There are quite a few sales for Hordak left including an EA sale for sub holders in Dec.
MOTUClassics.Com Asks: With the new roadmap having to focus on vintage figures at the cost of others, will Dactys be it for MO2K-inspired figures?
No, we do have other 200X characters in the 2014-2015 roadmap pending we get enough sub holders for a 2015 line. How many show up in 2014 remains to be seen but one will be shown at Power Con!
Kastor’s Korner: Can Glimmer have the boot cut joint and injection molded ankles sorely missing from our new female figures with unique tooling? Castaspella and Octavia would have benefitted greatly from this, so can Glimmer and other females with unique boots get what most male characters have been enjoying?
Mattel: We will certainly pass this comment to design.
Kastor’s Korner: Would it be at all possible to re-sculpt Two-Bad’s left hand as a grip instead of a closed fist? He needs have the option to hold either weapon.
Mattel: No, he is already in production at this point.
Kastor’s Korner: What is the fate of the Customer Service stock of sub-exclusives Clamp Champ, Sea Hawk, and Fang Man? You had to have set a few aside for replacements… What happens to them if they are unclaimed? Can they be made available for Black Friday or maybe Power Con?
Mattel: If any is left, the small quota will likely go on sale as an EA item sometime in 2014. But that is a big if.
Q: How many Club Eternia subscriber-only figures might there be for 2014?
Toyguru: Around the same amount as 2013.
Q: Just wanted to thank you so much for Modulok. Would it be possible to produce enough of him so some people could buy more than 1 for the different display options?
Toyguru: Sorry, but Mattel does not comment on production runs, but we do our best to produce some of the more popular figures in higher quotas when possible.
