    WTFWTK 2.20 - 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.

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

    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. Are fans likely to see a cardbord fold out Crystal Castle and/or Snake Mountain with future exclusive figures, or as an extra item to buy on Mattycollector?

    2. Will Mattel be celebrating 2002 MOTU's 10th anniversary in 2012?

    3. Is there any chance of characters from other Mattel brands making their way into MOTUC, like Hasbro has done with GI Joe by adding Matt Trakker from M.A.S.K?

    4. If each figure continues to sell out quickly, will Mattel consider offering two figures in the same releasing date? This way we can get more characters in less time and save on shipping as well.

    5. How many new figures will debut at the 2009 SDCC show?

    6. Any updates on the collection of classic mini-comics in a book?

    7. What percentage of figures are sold to US residents versus international residents, and what countries buy the most MOTUC figures?

    8. Due to the economic instability right now in the US and other countries, will Mattel offer something like a three or four-figure subscription feature and/or a way to cancel a subscription? It could prove detrimental to some fans to be locked into a commitment if something unforeseen were to happen like a job loss.

    9. What is the status on any merchandising for MOTUC? Anything fans should be on the lookout for?

    10. Is there a chance that subscriptions will force a sellout before the figure actually goes on sale? Please clarify if Mattel will be producing a set quantity regardless, or a set quantity + the subscription orders.

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

    So ask those questions!

    9. Regarding subscriptions, if someone wanted to order one or more figures in addition to those they subscribed for, will that figure or figures be shipped separately with an additional shipping cost or along with their subscription figure(s)?
    Question #9 has already been answered at mattycollector.com:

    • If you purchase more than one subscription, all figures purchased in a single transaction will be shipped together to the "ship to" address given at the time of purchase.
    • Other figures purchased outside the subscription (JLU, additional MOTU, etc.) will be charged and shipped separately.

    The line has proven itself to be a great success. How far away are we from seeing 2-packs (or more-packs) released online in the MOTUC line? Preferably with two new characters (or a two-pack of army builder characters such as Horde Troopers or perhaps Royal Guards), and not repaints or rereleased characters. Sets could be themed like an Adam and Adora set, or Rokkon and Stonedar, King Randor and Queen Marlena, etc.

    Question #6 has already been answered in one of our very own Q&A sessions.

    4. Fans have noticed that Mattel has DCU stands available online.
    Will these stands work for MOTUC figures or will MOTUC have their own stands created? If MOTUC will get their own, do you have any idea of what they will look like?

    We are looking at introducing MOTUC stands but likely not until 2010.

    Do you plan to produce also characters who share the same kind of "specificity" or "theme" (like, say, Ram Man and Butthead, Snout Spout and Tuskador, or Sy-Klone and Spinwit) ?

    This will be the 1st time I posted a question to ask.Why wont Mattel attend the Wizard World Comic Con? Mattel did not attend 08's WWCC either.I've gone there every year for the past 7 or 8 years,and last year,no Mattel.Now during those years I got the impression on my own,and from talking with other MOTU fans there,that WWCC has alot more MOTU that attend,then any other Con.

    Will the great performance of MOTUC in 2009 cause Mattel to increase the yearly budget allocations for the MOTUC line in 2010 or could the budget suddenly get increased if Mattel sees that they have a hit on their hands and they decide to quickly capitalize on it?

    I know that produce a playset in a low run can be very expensive. Is there any chance to make only the facade of the Snake Mountain in plastic?

    Will Mattel create high heeled feet as well as flat foot molds for female characters? She-Ra and The Sorceress stood at the same height as He-Man because of their high heels where as Teela and Evil-Lyn were shorter because of their flat boots.
