    WTFWTK 2.16 - Ask your questions here!

    Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:
    • Each user is limited to 1 question per Q&A.
    • Posts with repeat questions & multiple questions will be deleted, and the offending user will no longer be permitted to participate in that particular Q&A. So check to see if your question has been asked and help everyone out!
      Be sure to check the posts in this thread before you, as well as previous Q&A sessions!
    • This is for questions only; not discussion.
    • 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 avoid questions about:
    • Figure specific requests (eg: When will we see She-Ra?).


    Figure specific requests will undoubtedly be met with a "anything is possible" answer.
    The figures that can be produced are figures that were in the original MOTU, POP and NA lines, as well as in the mini-comics for these lines.
    Characters that appeared in the 2002 MYP cartoon are also fair game.
    Filmation characters are off limits!
    Who will be produced will remain to be seen.

    We will pick up to 10 questions we feel might get answers at that time. Please do not take offense to your question not being asked.
    It's nothing personal.

    Previous WTFWTK sessions (questions and Mattel answers):
    2.1
    2.2
    2.3
    2.4
    2.5
    2.6
    2.7

    2.9
    2.10
    2.11
    2.12
    2.13
    2.14

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

    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. Will Mattel offer a way for international fans who support the line get a hold of the chase/special figures you are releasing at the comic-cons without having to resort to eBay?

    2. If/When a movie toy line is developed, will the toys be in the same scale as MOTUC?

    3. Will Mattel be doing anything special for the 25th anniversary of the POP toy line?

    4. Some collectors have been reporting loose joints on new MOTUC figures. Is anything being done to remedy this?

    5. With the success of the MOTUC line thus far, can you tell us your plans (if any) for more unique sculpts?

    6. Are there any upcoming plans for gift sets that including multiple figures, or figures with vehicles/creatures?

    7. Does Mattel have plans to balance the number of villains with the number of heroes in the MOTUC line? With the announcement at NYCC of upcoming figures, the line is currently villain-heavy.

    8. For figures that will reuse body parts, will the same be true of head sculpts like in the classic line? (eg: Moss Man and Beast Man, Mer-Man and Stinkor, etc)

    9. Does Mattel have plans for more secure/insured shipping methods for international fans who never receive items?

    10. When will the subscription service be available?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Production increases

    Hi there,
    I know it has been stated that Mattel would have to wait and look at sales to determine increasing production of product, but after the frustration of seeing Faker sell out in less than three hours as well as the others selling out in three days or less, my specific question is-- Has Mattel determined if they will increase production numbers on figures? It can be hard to always buy at noon on the dot!

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Will Hordak's title be changed to its classic "Ruthless Leader of the Evil Horde", or something other than Evil Leader? Evil repeated sounds a little silly.

    A majority of adults work during the day and a lot of people can't be on the computer ordering figures at noon when they first go on sale, so is it possible to have at least some figures released at an evening time instead?

    Hearing the way cool news about Battlecat and Panthor...

    Are there plans to produce Swift Wind (hopefully, white and NOT pink, and without rooted hair) and/or Mantisaur?

    The girl and the "evil leader of the evil Horde" need steeds as well, right ")

    Hi TG. I have always loved Panthor and believe he is Skeletor's last connection to both his former self Keldor and his humanity.
    My question is will Panthor have a bio ? so we will at last know his orign.

    My my question is :
    Mattel is one of the biggest Toyproducer in the world. How is it possible that Mattel produce much mistakes with the Toys-i mean my Fakers are damaged, becaus they have all just right feet and a bad paint job! With no figure there are so much big quality problems. What will you ToyGuru to reduce this mistakes to 0,01%?
    I love so much the line, but i think you will loose much fans and me too, if the quality will be so bad.

    how about adding BUTTON to the figure's page on matty when it sells out that can say " i would like to be notified when this item is back instock". it would be an easy and fast way to gauge interest in a 2nd run of figures.

    it would give mattel cold, hard data about how many they should make rather than guessing or using sales models that may not actually not fit for MOTUC.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    Marvel/STAR Comics characters are off-limits, but do you have access to the limited DC Comics series? This includes Warrior-Bikini Teela and Adam in the blue outfit (He also appears this way in some of the Mattel mini-comics.)

    What is the philosophy of "real" names to the characters? Is there some sort of a logic when coming up with a new "real" name for a character?

    TO add to this one, what is the approval process? I mean we all understand MEr-Man, Trap Jaw aren't going to be names they are born with, but a name like Zodak or Hordak are pretty alien and though they may be based on words we know they are changed enough to make them fine names for alien characters. but HEC-Tor? I mean that's sillier than other MOTU names.

    Can you give us anymore insight into the upcoming Teela Classic? Such as what her alternate headsclupt will look like, (such as hair style, color, & facial features it's based on), as well as her weaponry, (like will she also include a sword)?
    Thank you for your consideration.

    What did you guys do with the giant King Grayskull and giant Faker statues from the comic conventions? You could always sell raffle numbers on MattyCollector.com and give us a chance to own them.

    We know is hard to reveal 2010 figures but, can POP fans expect something more than only She-Ra?
