I did not expect the logo to contain the most powerful color in the universe: ORANGE! Mad props.
I like the news. I like the MOTUC logo. And I can't wait to see the toys.
Seeing the finished logo makes me dislike the word "classics" even more.
I see fans on this board are offering to pick up King Grayskull for other fans. That's a cool thing to do.

All in all this was an excellent Q&A and I feel a bit more confident now that this line won't be a repeat of the previous one. My only remaining hope is that the line will consist of some cool characters that I want to get. So long as the first wave has one of the more non-human looking characters in it, I'll be happy. Heck, I'm just glad to be getting MotU toys again. Plus the option of maybe even getting new versions of the "HE-MAN" toyline characters (come on new Slushhead & Sagitar!) makes this line indeed a masterful one.
Bring on the SDCC!
(P.S.): Whoa, this is the 2nd time Mattel is revealing their newest incarnation of the MotU toyline at the SDCC. Co-wink-e-dink or no? o_O??
"Heroic Master of Collecting!"
Great Q&A! Thanks Toy Guru! I am psyched the classic cross is coming back! Why was it removed on the 200X He-Man? I can't seem to remember!
There are many possibilities for licensed product. We may announce some at SDCC this summer.
This is AWESOME!! I want tee-shirts, bedsheets, lunchboxes, and so much more!!!
It's just really cool that we are getting a 2nd MOTU line in the same decade. Hopefully the fiasco of 2002 will have made an impact on Mattel as to "how not" to distribute figures. I have not been on these boards for a looooong time, I'm excited there is something coming down the road that gets me pumped again. I hope this leads to a MOTU video game as well, a Wii version where you can use the wiimote at the power sword!
I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!
I am bummed about the Photog answer. That is easily my most wanted never-made figure in this line.
Most of the news sounds good, although they can't say a lot, obviously, until SDCC...
Will have to see if the new logo grows on me. I can't say that I hate it, but I'm not in love so far. I'm hoping for the exploding rocks behind it.
As much as i would've preferred the 4H cross symbol of the SDCC 2001 statue, I'm just glad it is a cross at all. The * symbol was OK... I didn't hate it as much as some, but it is nowhere near as cool as the cross. Very pleased that is back.
I am pleasantly surprised that nothing in this first Q&A disappointed me. Seems like they are making better decisions with this line.
[QUOTE=Hek-tor;1945843]I hope this means more stactions!!!
Not gonna happen. NECA turned down the license and have made it clear, by actions and comments, that they do not plan to pursue the property.Add this to the fact that Mattel would not be doing them as their goal is to get the MOTUC line up and running and any sales that went to the stactions would most likely take away from the sales for the figures. The staction lines are out of the question, IMO, until at least the 3rd or 4th wave of MOTUC is out and sales well. And if the line does not sell well the stactions are more then likly done for good. I can not see any scenario where the stactions come back in the next 2 years, at least.
By merchandising I think they mean things like Mcdonalds toys, comics (the he-man/voltron cross over for example), and other things like lunch boxs, note books, and things the classic line had. They would not sell anything that would detract from the sales of the figures, only things that would advertise them.
On another note I am very happy that they are going back to the cross. I didnt like the *.
I am also excited about the news that the Con is gonna be MOTU centric!
Pretty dissapointed with the final logo choice. The one they initially showed was much better being that it was closer to the original. It needs way less oranges and a touch more pink and silver.
And it seems if enough of us keep on asking for Photog he will get made. That is one figure that totally needs to get made. I forget, is his designer a member of this board? I vaguely remember him being in contact with this forum years ago. Maybe i'm wrong. It would be cool to get his reaction if the figure sees the light of day.

bah, I never cared for photog, when I saw that as the winning design I was underwhelmed to say the least. if he came out I would have bought it, but I don't really feel (as a fan) that he needs to be made, but it would be cool after all these years (for the designer) to have it finally come out. (Mattel should send him a free one if they can track him down)

who cares if the logo is a little oversaturated here or there, we're getting ACTION FIGURES!
That said. Why the orange stroke inside the "Masters", really why?

That is one snazzy logo they made. It has the right balance of nostalgia and modern.
