    WTFWTK 2.163 - Ask your questions here!

    Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:
    • Each user is limited to 1 question per Q&A.
    • Posts that repeat questions from other Q&As or from earlier in this thread, or posts that contain multiple questions, will be deleted. So check to see if your question has been asked and help everyone out!
    • This is for question submission only; not discussion. Please save that for discussion threads, and Q&A answer threads.
    • We will start a new Q&A thread when it is time for more questions, approximately every 2 weeks. So please don't start new Q&A threads.
    • Please do not attach photos. Any linked/attached photos will be removed.
    • Please avoid questions about the future release of a specific, previously unreleased character(s). The odds are overwhelming that Mattel will not spoil a reveal for something that isn't a re-release.

    A random fan will be selected to pick 5 questions to submit to Mattel. Please do not take offense to your question not being submitted.
    Also, we also edit questions to make them more concise, to be more specific, etc. Please take no offense to this either, as it's only meant to help.

    Click here for a master list of all previous Q&A sessions.

    --------------

    This past round of questions were selected by blackiecats.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!!!

    1. Blade: Does Mattel's current Filmation license also include the Blackstar and Bravestarr series, or is it just Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power?

    2. blackiecats: Are the SDCC 2015 Rotar and Twistoid completely sold out or will remaining customer service stock eventually appear on MattyCollector?

    3. DrumMaster: We were told in recent Q&As that certain items would be better suited for a future weapons pack. Is there going to be another weapons pack?

    4. Shecky: At NY Toy Fair, the Horde Trooper displayed was shown with the crossbow and staff, but without the baton and shield that were in the 2-pack. Will all of the 2-pack accessories be included with the single carded Trooper, or will it just be the crossbow and staff?

    5. Zodac: There is concern among a number of fans that the face of the recently revealed Roton, while being a novel and interesting re-imagining, is perhaps too much of a departure from the original design. Is there any chance that the face could be revised to be more faithful to the classic look of the Roton, or that a swappable "vintage" face-piece could be included with the vehicle so fans have an option for which look they'd like to display? The inclusion of interchangeable parts has been such a great feature of this line, and would also be great on the Roton!

    What do you consider the point of the chase figures like anti Eternia He-Man? New figures only last a couple days on the site and it's been the same evergreen figures for a couple years, so it can't be trying to sell other product with the new hits. There is no advertising for him so it can't be to attract new customers, so what is the point?

    Is the very promising mold used for great apes of Eternia (Gygor & Shadow Beasts)
    going to be reused in a near future?
    Creatures such as Ice Hacker & Red Beast (to name a few)
    could make great candidates.

    Rumor has it there will be an SDCC Thundercats exclusive. A number of Thundercats sub holders do not have MOTU subs and the Thundercats sub does not start now until September and more importantly their EA starts in September. Will special arrangements be made so that Thundercats sub holders have a shot at this if it is available during EA?

    Why has the problem of figures with derpy eyes not been fixed? Seems to be a continuing issue month after month with no resolution in sight.

    At NYTF production samples of Club Grayskull Skeletor & Beast Man were shown that mattel stated were not "final" Production but It was noticed that Beast Man's body was not cast in Orange Plastic like it should have been, instead Beast Man's body looks to have been cast in red plastic and painted orange because the hand holding the whip showed the orange paint flaking off at the wrist revealing the red plastic underneath. This make fans wonder how evil-Lyn will be treated Is mattel going cast her arms, legs and hands in flesh toned plastic or just paint the flesh tone on and will final production Skeletor and Beast Man a be cast in the correct color plastic for their body color.
    Looking forward to a very bright 2016 with MOTUC Collectors Choice, He-Man and the Masters Of the Universe animated Filmation line, Thundercats & SNAKE MOUNTAIN

    In your consideration of future releases of the snake men army builder figure/s, either single carded or two-pak, have you considered giving the figure a tail like in the 200x cartoon and comics? Like lizard men, snake men need tails!

    I see that you guys brought back the view master and revamped it to total awesomeness, is there a chance that you would make motu slides for this new view master? That would be the only reason I'd actually get one. Though I think this new one is stellar, I have no use for such a thing at this age, but I'd be willing to purchase one if we had motu slides or whatever it is that's used on the newer version.

    Can Mattel please consider to stop offering "chase" figures? (Without reducing the total number of SKU's -- by offering the former "chase" figure in a different manner)

    Awesome sticker included!

    With Horde Troopers coming back as a single carded figure, has the idea of a Club Army Builder ever cross Matty's mind? I'm sure there are collectors out there who wouldn't mind having an army builder character delivered to their door every month, be it a year of Horde Troopers or a mixture of different army builders throughout the year.

    If the Sorceress were to hypothetically be released in the new Grayskull line, would it be possible for her to come with a second head of her predecessor, Kudok Ungol?

    Since the MOTUC 200X mini sub was quite successful and since Mattel is licensing the MOTU brand to other companies, would it be possible to finally release the cancelled Faker and Kobra Khan mini staues (stactions) set in cooperation with NECA as a one time anniversary set in maybe 2017, 10 years after their demise?

    Since the arrival of Sssqueeze and King Hiss torso, Mattel has managed to make some nice quality bendy material. Is there any chance in a weapons pack or something we could get an upgrade to Octavia's tentacle arms? She's a great figure, but would be even better with the ability to pose those tentacles!

    Since the Club Grayskull Filmation He-man sold out in minutes and secondary market prices ($100+) indicate there is not enough supply to meet demand, will you consider making a second run of this figure? Perhaps with an improved ankle joint that has a smaller gap? If so, when would you be able to get this figure back on Matty Collector?

    Along the way, there have been some characters that seem to have been forgotten, or misplaced, so to speak. King Miro, Starburst She-Ra, Spirit (pre-transformation Swift a Wind), 200X Sorceress, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, The Twiggets, Catra's Cat Form (Filmation), Master Sebrian, etc. These are a bit different than the standard wish-list type figures, as they are important characters/variants, that in many cases appeared on most of the cartoon episodes associated with their segment of the brand. Is new management aware of these particular, much needed figures?
    A Want List of Sorts: you know what I want? I want a Deluxe MOTUC She-Ra in her toy costume and/or Starburst costume. I'd like a Filmation Adam too.
