Will the Bios continue with the rebranding of the line?

We will pick up to 5 questions we feel might get answers at that time. Please do not take offense to your question not being asked.

It's nothing personal.
***Important note: Mattel has limited the questions to 5 from each site who submits Q&As.
Previous WTFWTK sessions (questions and Mattel answers):
This past round of questions were selected by Count Judas.
Thanks to that fan for their help!!!
The questions that were asked in the previous Q&A & will be answered in a couple weeks as follows (please do not repeat them, or questions from previous Q&As):
1. MegaGearMax: Just as Filmation Hordak being a repaint of vintage Hordak was disappointing to a number of Filmation fans, Battleground Evil-Lyn being a repainted Evil-Lyn was disappointing to a number of 200x fans. What are the chances of getting a proper 200x Evil-Lyn in the future?
2. Uncle Jake: How committed is Mattel to completing the vintage New Adventures of He-Man characters?
3. Jubilation: Now that all the vintage POP heroic females are close to being done, are you aware of the demand from a number of fans for the heroic female POP character Granita?
4. Count Judas: With the possible rebranding of the line in 2016, will the new Mattel team offer fun and creative incentives for those who order next year's subscription? Perhaps something like a customer voted character vehicle, or picking a color choice for an upcoming release, or choosing what will be included in a new weapons or heads pack?
5. Jeevesosiris: The ankle articulation on MOTUC figures has become more and more limited, something made more problematic with the frequent loss of the boot cut articulation on a lot of the more unique sculpts we have been getting in the line. This loss of articulation is a real hindrance when it comes to posing. For 2016, will the ankle articulation be looked into and improved?
So ask those questions!
Will the Bios continue with the rebranding of the line?
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
Motu Giants have a substantial bank of toolings to date;
so is Mattel really done with this line?
The cheapest (A-Listers as well) being:
Moss Man, Prince Adam & Faker.
As for many others, reused parts stick around the 75% in average,
please don't give up, they are an amazing legacy to our childhood.
Can we expect to see more eternian women in the line? like Kittrina, Illena, Queen Elmora, Sybiline, Celice, Queen Balina, Spydra, Snowflake, Princess Rhea, Bowena, lady Arvella, Lt. Andra or Hawke.
Having seen the upcoming Dragstor figure, is it still possible to give him a blue torso like the vintage figure?
"Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."
When 200x ended we all hoped for figures like King Miro, ABC Giants, Queen Andreeno, and Hawke. There are also TON of awesome variants like Sorceress, Evil-lyn, Tri-klops, and (Randor who was confirmed cut so Filmation Randor could take his place when Mattel got Filmation rights). Can you confirm that we may see at least of few of these figures going forward? And...a 200x Inspired head for Squeeeeze?

ABC GIANTS, 200x Evil-lyn, 200x Sorceress, MYP Captain Miro, Hawke/Delora, Queen Andreeno, Captain Randor, 200x Tri-Klops, 200x Squeeeze head.
Unfortunately, the names on the box of Rotar and Twistoid are reversed. Is Mattel going to offer a free sticker with the correct names on it to rectify this issue?
Awesome sticker included!
Has there been any decision to lower the quantities each customer can purchase during early access(say 2 per customer) for more rare figures (like Spirit of Grayskull , Hover Robots,Con Exclusives ect.) so everyone has a better chance to get the figures they want?
what 2015 character will king hiss's top snake form come with, please?
Now that the Thundercats figures will share MOTUC parts could Spiritina from the Twiggets and Wilykit (if she's planned) share parts since they are roughly the same size?
Can the steps on Snake Mountain have pegs so that we can firmly place figures' feet on them for display purposes? Even if they just used the pegs that came with the previous action figure stands, that would be great! It's hard to stand figures on the ledge that was made on Castle Grayskull, because it's very narrow and slopes a bit... but pegs would have fixed this!
Next Ten Most Wanted: Classic Toy Costume Catra, Quakke, Sagitar, Negator, Granita, Bould-Or, Lady Slither, Bubblor, Major Header, Queen Elmora (She-Demon Of Phantos)
If everything goes well for both subscriptions, is there a chance of a third mini-sub being announced at ToyFair in 2016?
Proud supporter of the Snake Men.
Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard, Darius, the rest of New Adventures.
Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.
No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!
A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!
Any word on making both Snake Men and Horde Troopers an ever-green item on MattyCollector?

Everyone is excited about the reveals for 2016... and rightfully so. Some of us still long for the 'new' characters too, though. Is there a chance for a secondary sub featuring them in 2016 or 2017?
I think it´s very appropriate for the POP main villainess to finally get her variant, so i would like to know if there is a vintage toy accurate Catra figure on her way, since we have her FILMATION outfit and a character like Evil Seed who isn´t a major character in the big storyline but he gets a variant only one year after his first release?!
*Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Hawke *Pebb-Liss(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

Will you assure us that the Power Con figures will be made available in decent quantities on Matty Collector as other 'exclusives' have before?
Vaults of Grayskull - www.vaultsofgrayskull.co.uk
If no further info can be given at this point about how we are getting the 200x King Hssss snake form, can we get further confirmation that it is coming in 2015 and as part of the sub as previously stated?
Could you give Vultak the Icer forearms so his gauntlets are furry to be more accurate to his appearance in the cartoon?
This may add a little more diversity, rather than using the gauntlets his prototype is wearing.
Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Dylamug - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets - King Ahgo - Filmation Grizzlor, Mantenna, Leech, Modulok and Multi-Bot
Now the MOTUC line is scaled back (essentially halved compared to the previous years) will we still be able to get unique sculpts such as Dylamug appear in the Collector's Choice subs in the future?

6 characters I still need: 6/Granita, 5/Filmation Leech, 4/Filmation Tung Lashor, 3/Twiggets (Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina), 2/Hunga the Harpy, 1/Dylamug.
Will the new Filmation line be restricted to the He-Man cartoon, or will you also be doing characters from the She-Ra cartoon? If so, would they get She-Ra inspired packaging?
The Prototype-Figure of Queen Grayskull featured a blue Band wrapped around her staff, the toy figure, what was shown at SDD, didn't.
So, will the staff of the final figure be with or without the blue band??
Last year when the 2015 subscription was shown at SDCC we were told that the King Hsss Snake form couldn't be costed into the Snake Armor He-man vs Battle armor King Hsss 2 pack but that the Snake form was indeed coming with a character later in 2015 and anyone who subscribed was guaranteed to get the Snake Form in 2015
Now a year later at SDCC Brandon tells Pixel Dan It's coming, It's in the works , it will be a complete package but won't say anymore about it.
MY question is Is Mattel going to Honor what was told to us last year when we subscribed and are we getting the snake Form in 2015? Why is mattel being so secretive about how the subscribers are getting it?
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
International buyers worry about shipping for item containing electronics. How far they have to ?
I haven't read anything about a map coming with the 2016 Collector’s Choice Subscription,with Snake Mountain coming soon,a map of that would have been AWESOME to complement this year's Castle Grayskull map! will a map of Snake Mountain ever be made? It's screaming too!!!

Will the thunder cat figures heads be interchangeable with motuc figures?
I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!
