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

    This past round of questions were selected by WDWFreak53.
    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. Grepicon: Will Mattel ever release an art book of all the Create-A-Character Contest entries? From the 80s contest and the most recent one too.

    2. WDWFreak53: The cross-sell poster that came with Castle Grayskull put the figures in order of timeline appearance. Is it possible that you could update us when a figure is revealed of where they would fall if you were to update the poster?

    3. Snake Hunter: Lady Slither from the minicomic has received positive critiques. Is this a character from the Create-A-Character contest or is a creation of someone at Mattel?

    4. bigsexy_j: Why are the quarterly subs being charged per item on the same day? This has resulted in some charges being blocked by the card companies and 4 to 5 charges by one retailer in a 10 minute span can be seen as suspicious. Can this be changed for the next 3 quarters?

    5. Coptur: Why was Skeletor carrying Flogg's disembodied head in the latest mini-comic and is this before or after his Hook'Em Floog apearance?

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

    So ask those questions!

    And I hope to see you all at Power-Con!

    So now we know that in order to complete vintage MOTU, vintage POP, and top A-List from NA and other media we needed the 2014 and 2015 regular sub to go through PLUS the 2014 mini-sub.

    My question then is: what about the potential 2015 mini sub, is that also required to wrap up the "All Star road map" in time? Or would a 2015 mini sub (if offered) simply be a chance to get some of those "waiting room" figures out of the waiting room sooner?
    Classics won't feel complete unless ALL vintage MOTU POP & NA are included
    TOP 35 WANTS
    MOTU:TungLashor/Gwildor/Dragstor/Saurod/Ninjor
    POP:Angella/Mermista/Peekablue/Perfuma
    NA:Crita/Darius/Nocturna/Sagitar/Sebrian/Tuskador/Kayo/Lizzor/Andros/Hoove
    FILMATION: DreeElle/Imp/Montork/Kittrina/Sunder/Twiggets/Masque
    MISC:Lodar/Veena/Miro/Delora/Hawke/OOLarr/Prahvus/Dare/EvilSeed

    Last time you gave us a list of what to expect the next two years:

    -Vintage MOTU
    -Vintage MOTU variants
    -Vintage POP original characters
    -200X main characters
    -Filmation main characters
    -NA main characters
    -Other media main characters


    Do you consider JETLAG characters as NA main characters as well or are you only considering NA toy line characters as main NA characters?

    Since we know Mara will be coming in 2015, I was wondering if you could say whether you have decided if she will be designed after the unmade vintage prototype, or the outfit that she wore in the latter part of the Jetlag cartoon? Or maybe a combination of both?
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    We probably won't see Nocturna in MOTUC form for sometime but in his bio does he have the psychic powers established in the old UK comics?

    Hypothetically, it's been mentioned that a 2016 subscription could include 2.0 versions of characters. However, wouldn't 2.0 figures be best if sold as a non-sub item and leave the subscriptions to new characters (aside from variant quarterly slots)? Not every subscriber will want a 2.0 figure taking up a valuable and limited spot that a new character could have had. As a non-sub item, people can decide if they prefer the 2.0 version over the one previously offered and buy it if they want to, without feeling forced into purchasing it as part of the subscription.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    The vintage Masters Of The Universe, Princess Of Power and New Adventures toylines are well known for the action features, with many of the original characters being defined by their unique gimmicks.

    Can you give us some idea of what action features these newly created characters may have had, as if they had existed back in the 80s/90s:

    Lady Slither
    Hans Hammer Holder
    Red Shadow
    Fang-Or
    Goldenrod
    Robowoman
    Snarrrlll The Snow Thief
    Gladiator
    Beast Lord
    Bandwidth
    The Great Black Wizard
    Skeleteen
    He-Ro II (Dare)
    Vypor
    Strettch Nek
    Tufos
    Despera
    Standar
    Unnamed One
    Man Crystal

    The customers that buy the subscriptions are the ones that will allow a 2016 sub. So there is a chance that in 2016 the subscription slots can be decided by an official poll that only 2015 subscription customers can access? This way customers will get the characters they really want to buy.

    MOTUC's mission always seemed to be around recreating vintage figures in a new modern way while also adding in new characters never minted in plastic. Considering that you guys are charging forward to complete the road map, are you guys more focused on recreating vintage figures, creating characters that never saw a toy release or both?
