    MOTUC Sales Status

    MOTU fans,

    We're working hard here at Mattel on new MOTUC figures for the remainder of 2009 and beyond, but I wanted to take a moment to give our fans here at He-Man.org a quick update.

    First off, sales are doing very well. If sales continue at a current rate, it looks like each figure will likely sell out in about a month which is where we hoped we would be.

    While we are not at the point that we can tool a new Castle Grayskull, we will start to look at options to bring some of the beasts and larger items into the line in 2010! Stay tuned as we continue to monitor sales.

    We also know there are still a few bugs in the ordering process (although we hope greatly improved over the orders after SDCC 2008). We are extremly committed to working all of these ordering issues out as we move into 2009 with new product every month (and a new MOTU Classics figure on the 15th of every month)

    Keep those fan posts coming, MOTUC has a great future!

    Toy Guru

    I'm heartened to hear the good news about the line! I hope it continues on healthily. Just out of curiosity, are you aware that the plastic hanging hooks are not being attached to the packaging? Are you also aware of the poor packing job being done that is causing the cards to come through bent and in worse shape than 100%? While I realize SOME damage can be done through shipping, the kind of damage I've seen from my own figures shows just flat out negligence on whomever is packing these.

    Screw the beasts, I want Castle Grayskull!
    Seriously though, that's cool news to hear and hopefully will quiet down some of the negative nagging that's been going on... here's hoping Skeletor and beyond all sell really well too!

    Excellent, thank you for showing your dedication to the fans by caring enough to keep us updated, and read our concerns. We're all looking forward to a day when that Castle Grayskull is possible. Of course the only way it will be possible is if we committ to this line. If we don't, who will?? For possibly the first time in history, we have people like the toyguru who are very much like us in high places, so please, let's ensure this line is a success and continue to be understanding as this is a fledgling process still yet, and will take time to work out all the bugs. thanks, and thank you toyguru!

    Thats great news, but sales would most likely be alot higher if they didn`t CANCELL EVERYONE`S ORDERS! If they want support from us they better fix the issues at hand because it`s alot less stressful for me not to order than it is to through the same stuff every month.
