    Answers to WTFWTK 2.145!

    Mattel has once again provided answers to your questions.
    Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these!
    Check out their answers to your Round 145 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by The.Idea.of.Evil.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!

    1. bribri4u: Are you aware of Crita's importance and popularity with a number of fans, and are you aware her standard dress version is what fans want the most so we don't end up with another Star Sisters debacle?

    Yes we are aware of the demand for and popularity of Crita. All of your comments are noted!

    2. SonOfHeMan: What happens to defective figures that are returned to Mattycollector?

    Depending on the condition of the product it can go to a couple places. If it's in decent condition it is returned to Mattel headquarters or the Mattel Toy Store, and possibly discounted. If it is bad condition then it is tossed into the pits of Snake Mountain and destroyed.

    3. The.Idea.of.Evil: Years ago Hasbro released a single Matt Trakker figure (from the M.A.S.K. toy line) into their GI Joe line as a surprise to fans. Will we ever get additions like this in Classics, such as characters from Bravestarr, Silverhawks, Blackstar, and Tigershawks, or are all the remaining Classics slots reserved for He-Man and She-Ra characters with no room for non-franchise stuff?

    Since MOTUC is predominantly done on a subscription model and based on fan demand, we're not sure we would ever include figures in the line that weren't strictly MOTU and POP. For something like you are proposing, we may consider doing a small limited release that would say have a pre-order to gauge demand. We like the idea of sneaking in characters from other vintage brands that we own, but not sure how the rest of you would feel about that.

    4. DrumMaster: How can problems happen like Angella's poorly painted eyes if there is a Quality Control process?

    There is always a chance for something like that to happen, and we do everything we can to assure the quality remains consistent, but these figures are not created by robots. Most of the paint ops are done by a human hand, and in that there is always room for human error. We see the figures at different stages of the production process to make sure things are looking correct and look for mistakes (especially the eyes) and do everything we can to make sure they look great. But we ultimately can't control what happens to EVERY figure on the production line, at a personal level.

    If you all saw how much hand work actually goes into every single little paint op, you'd probably be grateful you get figures that look as good as they do. That being said, we are trying our best to make sure this type of stuff does not happen again.


    5. Madison Carter: Previously, fans were told that the concept characters from the old Tomarts magazine article and the Power and Honor Foundation book were off-limits as figures due to uncertainty of Mattel's ownership over said characters. A handful of these concepts recently appeared in the Mattel-approved Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe book from Dark Horse. Does this mean that at least the characters that were featured in Dark Horse's book are now theoretically "on the table" as potential future figure releases?

    We can't speak to what was previously stated about what figures are off limits or not because honestly we aren't sure. We are looking into all opportunities that are available to us, and what could be available if we just ask. There was a lot of stuff that was originally said to have restrictions on it, which we later found out was not the case, so we are open to re-examining any figure if there is a reason to.

    Some interesting answers.

    Personally, I'd love to see Marshal Bravestarr and Tex Hex in MOTUC, but they're probably the only non-MOTU/PoP figures I'd like to see in MOTUC. Other than the DC superheroes, like Superman and Wonder Woman (to form a trinity with the previously released TDKR Batman).

    I'm not sure Angella's eyes were hand-painted. It almost looks like they were "stamped" as part of an automatic process. The really bad examples seem to have nicely painted eyes, but they're just in the completely wrong position on the face!

    I'd really like to eventually see the Horde Mummy concept character in MOTUC. The design really fits with the "Universal Monsters" aesthetic of the Evil Horde. And since we received the proto-type He-Man figures, I'd also like to see the proto-type She-Ra (aka He-Ra) in MOTUC eventually. BUT not using BG Teela's hips!

    So, hope for things like Lubic, Julie, Kevin, and Karg?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    We want Crita!!!! (though I, possibly in the minority, prefer the battle outfit version which I think looks much better)
    10393673_10100736000535973_5102732718727173515_n.jpg

    If we ever got non-MOTU for MOTUC, I would love to see Sun-Man, though he was not a Mattel character. I'd imagine rights would not be expensive for those old Olmec characters.

    The widespread Angella eye problem was really disappointing. I am usually happy with how most figs turn out (and detail done), but not "grateful" with how mine and many other Angellas turned out, especially for such an important figure.

    Would love if Mattel reevaulates figures once previously said were off the table. Karg, please!!!!!

    See this is the problem I've had with this 'guest star' idea since i joined, I'm really not sure a lot of the 'guest stars' people are asking about are owned by Mattel - I was under the impression that Filmation (so now Dreamworks) owned Blackstar and Bravestarr (and regardless the former's toys were produced by Galoob), and Sea Hawks and Tiger Sharks were created by Rankin/Bass and are now thus owned by Warner Bros. I'm not even sure Mattel could use Fuerza-T without paying out. I'd LIKE figures of all the characters from those lines in the same style of MOTUC but I don't think they own them so a guest star would have to come from things like Food Fighters, Matt Mason, Big Jim, Pulsar, Street Sharks (and Extreme Dinosaurs), Fisher Price Adventure People and um...I dunno, Spectra? They own Ideal though so Electroman & Zogg, Zeroids and Manglors maybe? Oh Wikipedia tells me they own Tyco too...so you could get an Incredible Crash Dummy?

    Honestly of the stuff I know they own, I'd be the most pleased with The Krusher but Big Jim's nemesis Zorak would make the sensible choice, he's cheap and he's awesome and he fits easily into MOTU (though really any/all of the Big Jim's P.A.C.K. figures would be fine by me)

    If you all saw how much hand work actually goes into every single little paint op, you'd probably be grateful you get figures that look as good as they do.
    Well this is a throwback, isn't it.

    I would love to see warlord in classics , Remco ownd the rights to the 80 knock off 'style' figure, but I think DC owns the comic rights ,.so probably not possible,

    But I would snap up a Black star, I think Mattel owns the rights so it should be fine

    The Angella response mystifies me--If the eyes are painted on by hand, wouldn't the person who's painting, you know..... realize the eyes were wonky and fix it on the spot?
    I mean, crazy eyes is a universal language that cannot be ignored
    On a positive note--I am grateful for these figures and love them, but this Q+A response has me doing a major head scratch

    DC and Matty are very friendly. I want a new Warlord and Arak too, and I bet if Matty wanted to do them, they could be arranged.

    Is TG back at Mattel?


    What I'm grateful for is that my Angella was fine.
    Not sure anyone with crazy eye Angella was greatful...

    However, I would LOVE to get a Silverhawks figure...
    Wasn't LJ the maker though...I'm about 100% sure they were for Tigersharks.

    Great answers. I do NOT believe these figures' faces are painted by hand...NO WAY. It's a machine! Maybe some of the outfits and the hair is hand painted, but there's no way humans can reproduce the same thing over and over again thousands of times and make the same error the same exact way. No way!

    Back on topic, I could definitely go for "80's Toonz" line from Mattel. This would feature lesser known 80's cartoon series:

    Bravestarr
    Wheeled Warriors (Jayce)
    Strawberry Shortcake (super articulated, scented figures)
    Inhumanoids (could you imagine if the 4H did Tendril or Decompose?)
    Visionaries
    Galaxy High
    Kidd Video


    ^Of course, licensing would probably be an expensive nightmare, so it may be just a pipe dream,

    Dreamworks owns Bravestarr, Blackstar AND Filmation He-man. The relationship is already there and the three shows really feel like they are happening on different planets in the same universe. Both would be incredibly easy to do with minimal new parts: Bravestarr is a head, a hat and a chest overlay. Blackstar is a head, a necklace and a loincloth.

    Horde Mummy FTW!

    Mattel is saying it's by hand. And here I was hoping the conspiracy theories died with Scott's departure.

    So do you all want a poll? We'll do one if you all want.


    The key is going to be if Mattel owns or has immediate access to the property. If it's something owned by someone Mattel doesn't have a close relationship with, my personal advice is to forget it. I just don't see Mattel pursuing, acquiring and paying for a license just to do a brand insert into MOTUC.

    Another great round of answers.

    But, ugh, here come the calls for everybody and their mother to join the Classics line. Bravestarr, Silverhawks, blah, blah, blah.

    The last thing I want to see are figures for characters with ZERO connection to MOTU. The thing about the Joe Matt Tracker figure is that it was a one off. That's all! The 25th line didn't turn into a MASK line. Sorry, but it really bugs me when people start pushing to shoe horn in all their favorite toys from their childhood into MOTU. I for one would be livid if I bought a sub and got a Bravestarr figure.

    There are so many good characters available in the MOTU mythos, that MOTUC could run for a good 2-3 years and still hit many fan demanded characters. I do not want to miss out on a Vultak or a Lodar for a frickin' Silverhawk.
    TOP WANTS:

    SONGSTER, CAMO KHAN, LODAR, EVIL ROBOT, DARIUS,

    I would rather have Blackstar, Bravestarr or Warlord than Standor or Mo-larr.

    I'd say the door is wide open for barely related characters, although I do believe those three are the only ones we even have a remote chance with.

    very interesting, probably great, answers.


    Most interesting to me is that characters that were "off limits" are known to be open to interpritation, and that they are interested in seeing what they can do.

    Also "sneaking in" things from other properties they have rights too being something that technically they are open too is wonderful. I'm crazy sure, but I am still holding out for, as they suggest partially, a pre-order limited set of Blackstar. Klone, Mara, Overlord, and the Man Himself need to be done (among many other things) using the MOTUC Style bucks and toot sweet.

    If the figures are all hand painted, and unless someone has an in somewhere in Mattel to state they AREN'T we have to assume they are, it's not as easy as it sounds.

    Try it sometime and see how you do.

    DC Direct did a cool Travis Morgan Warlord figure several years ago ... personally I do not need another. unless there is a way to bring new money into MOTUC by offering one-off cross over figures that make sense, I would prefer to stick with exploring the MOTUniverse. Certainly would not be in favour of spending MOTUC dollars purchasing rights to use non-MOTU characters in this line.

    All that said, the answer to #5 is certainly very positive. I'm hoping Karg was the figure that Mattel have found opened the door to asking about access rights as Karg is lining up as perhaps the most glaring omission from the toyline if not made.

    There were a number of excellent concepts from the Tomarts magazine that I'd love to see finally released into MOTU, especially 'Horder'. Those cool little Hordlings coming out of his body would make an awesome character - and helps to harken back to the concept idea of the Horde-badge being a parasite controlling the warriors (a'la MOTU version of Starros).

    So, a few things on my end...

    I asked about alternative characters being included in MOTUC because of the recent sub incentive for the 200X line being a huge letdown (the alt heads). There were only two figures I was interested in in the basic sub, and the alt. head package to figures that I didn't own anyways did nothing for me. So I didn't sub. Now, if they would have offered a Silverhawk or a Bravestarr (or something really enticing and rare), I absolutely would have, and I would have subbed three times for something like that. And I asked my question from the view of "if there are limited funds, why waste them on things not really wanted?" In the case of the alt heads incentive, why use them as a sub incentive when not everyone wanted and/or could use it?

    Also, please Val, do start a poll! Take a list from fans of everyone from every great 80's property they want, and we can worry about who owns the rights to whom after we gauge interest.
