    WTFWTK 2.25 - 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.
    Also, we also edit questions to make them more concise, be more specific, etc. Please take no offense to this either, as it's only meant to help.
    It's nothing personal.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by Mr. Shokoti.
    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. Fneh: Has the success of the art book done anything to change Mattel's plans on releasing more MOTU material in print? Perhaps the collection of classic mini-comics or even new mini-comics to be included with the figures?

    2. midor: Will King Grayskull's bronze statue variant be re-released? Perhaps as a bonus figure the same month King Grayskull is reissued?

    3. King Tycho: Is there any possibility of releasing a cardboard Snake Mountain, similar to the box that King Grayskull came in, perhaps as a mail-away, a club exclusive or even with a Skeletor re-release or another villain?

    4. The.Idea.of.Evil: Many fans hoped for Teela to be more curvacious than she ended up, even after adjustments were made. Considering this, plus all the different females that are in the POP line, will the 4H be creating multiple body sculpts for the female figures that have more (and sometimes less) curves to them? Or will there be only one standard body type just with differences in feet and heads?

    5. Toymaker: With the release of the Green Goddess, will we be seeing other comic characters in this line, from both the original mini-comics and the MVC comic series?

    6. King Kahn: While specific characters cannot be named for each month, can we get a month by month run down on if they are good/evil/neutral?
    For example:
    June - good character
    July - bad character
    August - bad character
    September - neutral/other

    7. Analog Jote: In He-Ro's bio, there is a mention of "The Overlords of the Timeless Dimension on Trolla", while in Zodac's bio he is recruited by "The Overlords on Trolla." Are there two different groups called The Overlords, or are they one and the same? And if they are the same, how does the Timeless Dimension play into the story?

    8. Snake Hunter: In regards to the falcon included with Teela, there is some debate if this is Zoar as the falcon form of the Sorceress or Zoar as a Winged Fighter like in the original toy. What is the official MOTUC bio of this character? And will it ever come with the armor and the perch like the original Zoar toy, maybe even in the green concept color rather than the red color that was produced?

    9. grenadaspice: In a recent interview that you did with Fwoosh, you stated that it was requested that the Four Horsemen include at least a 2nd accessory or a 2nd head sculpt with all the figures. If that is the case, why do we have some figures that only come with one accessory? For example: Zodac (laser gun), Zodak (power staff), Beast Man (whip), or even Stratos who doesn't come with any accessories at all?

    10. Jay Bell: If a Cringer figure is ever made, will he likely be a retool of Battle Cat or an entirely new sculpt?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Can we have any more information on the upcoming accesory pack? When will it be released and at what cost? We know that it's not using any new sculpted parts, but if the first one is successful would you consider adding new sculpted parts in ones later on?
    Fneh's MOTUC wishlist:
    Spikor, MYP Marzo, Snake Armour He-Man, Stinkor
    Fneh's MOTUC needed list:
    King Grayskull, Beastman, Stratos head

    Can you explain why Webstor's Fast Pack doesn't work like the original when we were told that it would?

    You have stated that you wanted to pay homage to the 200X storyline with a new DVD or comic release. With the movie being years away, are you working on developing any other media to whet our appetites?

    When you get to She-Ra, do you plan on including an updated version of the POP gold Sword of Protection along with the version coming with Adora?

    During the ComicCon panel, it was announced that you were looking into making larger figures. I haven't heard anything beyond that statement. Is that comment solely for the Giant figures like Tytus and Megator, or does it mean you're looking into making some characters like Clawful and Tung Lashor, a bit larger?

    Why is it that my subscription figures are not taxed, while my orders from Matty collector are taxed? Also why is tax sometimes charged on shipping charges and other times only on the purchase price? (Note: I live in FL and am not international)

    Many fans were displeased that Tri-Klops’ left forearm was painted rather than cast in the same color plastic as the right forearm. Will future figures utilizing this new forearm, like King Randor, be handled the same way?

    Like his 80's counterpart, will Randor's crown be removable? And if so, will the design be better this time around, rather then his forhead being dented in so the crown can slide in?

    We are quite unclear as to whether the stands will be 3 in a package or 5 (You said at the SDCC panel there would be 3, but the sign in the booth said 5). Could you tell us for certain?

    We know that the 4 Horsemen are always "ahead of time" regarding work and sculpts.

    Can you tell us how many different figures that have not been released yet are already completely sculpted and ready in the 4 Horsemen's workshop ?

    Precision : I don't ask for names of figures, but for an idea of an amount of figures that are already sculpted and ready to be marketed in the next months/years.

    Why were Stratos' wings placed behind the arms instead of more toward the front of the arms like the original figure and card back art? Even the figure on MattyCollector.com has the wings placed toward the front of the arms. Will the re-release correct this?

    Mill Creek Entertainment, the new owner of the 2002 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe home video license, have expressed their desire to release the aforementioned series on Blu-ray in early 2010, pending approval by Mattel. Have you been in talks with Mill Creek Entertainment regarding a Blu-ray release of the 2002 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe television series? If so, is a deal close to being reached?

    There are several of us who belong to the 2009 Subscription Plan and the 2010 Club Eternia, who are moving midway through one of the subscriptions. However, when we call Matty Collector, we're being given the run around, only to find that many people had their Webstor figures shipped to their old address. What is being done to correct this? I'm in the process of moving, and I don't want to forfeit my subscriptions because someone in customer service can't figure out how to update my address. Thanks.

    With the success of the classics line, will a castle grayskull of any type even be made into a prototype form by the horsemen, whether it just be the front of the castle for display purposes, or something along the lines of the vintage castle that actually opened up?

    We have heard that you have a "plan" in regards to the bios that come with the characters. Are you working from a singular document, a "series bible" of sorts, that ties all of the classics storyline and mythology together, and if so is there any chance of releasing this document at some point in the future?

    Fans seem to agree that 15$ for stands is extremely expensive and don't plan on buying them because of this. Is there anyway for this price point to change? Many fans would like to get these stands but just can't rationalize the high price of them. DCUC stands are $12.00 and you get 25 of them. I know there is a little bit more to the MOTUC stands but not so much more that a pack of 5 should cost more than a DCU pack that has 5X more...

    Has a decision been made regarding fabric materials? We will see capes or clothing (such as Prince Adam's vest) made of cloth? Or will such things always be plastic?

    A recent review of Teela shows that she stands at the same height, if not taller, than He-Man. Will there be any attention made to other female figures about this or will MOTUC be a land of giant women/mid-get men? Will the already announced high-heeled/flat foot molds (of which Teela is tall with the flat version) make a big enough difference in height for a variety of women and their sizes?

    (side note - m i dge t is a censored word here??? wow)

    We know we're getting Battle Cat, BA He-Man, Trap-Jaw, Mossman, Adora, She-Ra, Wun-Dar, and Orko in the 2010. I would love to know at least 2-3 more characters (no matter which month) who are coming in 2010. Hint,hint... .
    Do not count re-releases, please
