    WTFWTK 2.29 - Ask your questions here!

    Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:
    • Each user is limited to 1 question per Q&A.
    • Posts that repeat questions from other Q&As or from earlier in this thread, or posts that contain 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 question submission 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.


    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 5 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, to be more specific, etc. Please take no offense to this either, as it's only meant to help.
    It's nothing personal.

    ***Important note: Mattel has limited the questions to 5 from each site who submits Q&As.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by The.Idea.of.Evil,
    and proofed against old Q&As by Uncle Montork.
    Thanks to them 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. The.Idea.of.Evil: You have told us that all females will share similar body parts. So, does this apply to female figure height as well? Many fans are concerned about Teela's height, as she appears to be the same height of (maybe even taller than) the male figures.

    2. nato: At SDCC, it was mentioned that Mattel is looking into making large-scale figures. Since the MOTUC figures are sharing sculpts and probably won't vary in scale, were you instead talking about a large-scale MOTUC line similar to the large-scale Ghostbusters figures?

    3. RocketPunch: Since it's supposed to be cloned from the Power Sword in the MOTUC canon, would it be possible for Adora's Sword of Protection to be painted 2-tones of silver in order to match He-Man's (with the gray hilt and metallic blade)?

    4. Patreek: Fans are concerned about the availability of Ninjor's trademark/name. Has it been secured so we will get Ninjor, or will we have to settle for a new name?

    5. Darkspecter: We have been told that female figures will use the one-piece outfit. Would Mattel consider making it a two-piece outfit instead so they can use the waist-twist feature, especially for female figures that have distinct waists, skirts, pants, etc?

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

    So ask those questions!

    With the super fast sellout of the reissue He-Man (and if you have access to this kind of data / statisticts) can Mattel confirm weither the fanbase for MOTUC is now growing and attracting new customers, or were most of the reissue He-Man figures bought up by existing Mattycollector customers: who have purchased MOTUC figures on previous sale dates?

    It really would be nice to know if the brand is now drawing in new blood!

    Will Mattel step up it's quality control to seriously limit defects and missing accessories since we can no longer get exchanges on figures that sell out usually in hours? And will there be a specific department at customer service to deal with returns? Many of us have been getting sent back and forth from Mattel to Digital River and never get anyone to help.

    Some fans have received Scareglow figures that were missing the "Cursed Grayskull reliquary" and/or the key inside, will Mattel be able and willing to send out these missing accessories to these fans, in time?

    Will Battle Cat come in a white mailer like the regular figures to prevent it from damage in the mail?

    Are there any plans to do a "voter's choice" figure in 2010? Many fans would LOVE to have a small influence in this awesome line and this sort of thing could really drum up even more "buzz" for the MOTUC's line (as if it needs more ).

    First off let me apologize if this has been asked a million times. Now that the obligatory apology is out of the way, Will vehicles from the different line be included in the large scale beast figures? Vehicles like Attak Trak and the Land Shark for example.

    free electronic content

    Will Matty make available for free electronic content to MOTU fan through mattycollector website or through the newsletter ? And if "yes", when can we expect this feature to begin?

    It would be a good way to please the fans with wallpaper, phone sound (I would love to download King grayskull "I have the power" in hight quality ), flash BD, 1 page story, concept art, studio photo gallery, 4H (or anyone else at involved in MOTUC line) interviews, etc …

    The Goddess & Teela's neckpeg's are too long, which prevents the Cobra Armor from fitting correctly - the grooves on the back of their armor should line up with the chest.

    Will the problem with the Goddess & Teela's long neckpegs be corrected on future female figures and reissues?

    We all know that Club Eternia members will receive a Wun-Dar figure & a poster map as bonuses, but it was also stated we will receive some other items also. When might me find out what these other items are?

    It is confirmed that Catra will be labeled as a Evil Horde member, does it mean that she'll have a Horde sign/emblem on her outfit like in cartoon?

    With the bonus figures thus far proving to be a success, would Mattel consider doing delux bonus accessories a long the line of Scuba attack, tower towels or cliffclimbers ? Not sold w/ figures, but seperately ?

    Many collectors are much interested in purchasing MOTU testshots or prototypes. Unfortunately the many eBay sellers that offer them, sometimes get them from illegitimate sources. Would Mattel consider running charity auctions offering items like these directly to collectors, so that people who are interested in these items might feel at ease buying from a trustable source and also help a good cause, rather than help illegitimate trading?

    There is a little bit of confusion in regards to the origin of the Sword of Protection. Some people read Adora's bio one way and some see it another way. But, can you confirm whether the Sorceress cloned the Sword of He to make the Sword of Protection when it was still separated in 2 halves and if this occurred when the twins were still babies?

    After a full year into MOTUC, a lot of the figures that Mattel continues to release (the most recent being re-issue He-Man) still suffer from the same old problem of loose joints (especially the ankles, which means the figures can't stand properly or fall over at the slightest vibration). Can Mattel seriously consider losing the "action posing" of the figures inside the packaging and just pose them in a manner which will not bend the ankles or legs? The figures aren't constructed well enough to withstand the forced posing in the plastic packaging, and for $20 a figure in a collector's line, customers shouldn't have to be epoxying joints in order to get an action figure to display properly. Or perhaps Mattel could consider doing away with ankle articulation entirely, as it seems to be causing more headaches than joy. And please don't use this question to recommend buying the action figure stands from Mattycollector, as that is not considered an answer to the problem of quality control. If customers need bases in order to get their figures to actually stay standing, then one base should be included with each figure, not sold seperately.

    Right now, we're a couple of days away from December 2009... 2010 is now very close.

    We know some of the things that should happen in the 1st half of 2010.

    Can you please offer us any piece of tasty, exclusive information about what will/shall/could/might occur for the MOTUC line during the second half of 2010 ?

    It has been mentioned a few times that females will share the basic Teela body. I'm a little confused how this will work on some of the characters. For example, when Mattel finally gets around to doing characters like Jewelstar and Tallstar from the POP line, will the aforementioned hold true for them as well, or would Mattel be willing to go the extra mile on these mostly-unique tooled characters? I'm hoping they can retain all or most of their unique parts.

    On the bio of Battle Armor He-man. Do not think that is confusing the public explanation? If Adam learns to turn the sword into objects of his imagination, which so far we are from the version of the Sword of She-ra Filmation series?
    Did He-man will appear with a racket as She-ra in the series, or maybe He-Man ends up being a magician?
    It would have been better to say that the armor was just a battle suit that gives sorceress He-man, as are Corodite Armor and power axe that The Goddess gave in the first minicomic?
