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

    This past round of questions were selected by TUC138.
    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. TUC138: When Filmation Hordak was revealed, a number of fans were upset that the figure did not come with a Filmation style head, bone border cowl & armour. What are the chances of getting these items in the future? And if so, when might they be released?

    2. Tundra_Torque: When will the 2016 MOTUC sub drive open for subscribers to purchase?

    3. Courtney: Is there still a chance to get a "Grayskull Pack" including the Castle Grayskull accessories that were shown in Dark Horse's Art of He-Man Book (the dungeon grate, the triangle weapons rack, and the candle and the smoking skull)?

    4. Grayskull's Heir: Is Mattel aware of the negative feedback about the "He-Ro Son of He-Man" concept presented in the current MOTUC mini comics? Some fans are scared that this is the direction Mattel might take for the 2016 MOTUC line.

    5. Snake Hunter: Will the Rotar VS Twistoid two-pack include the rotary weapons and the pedestals that came with the original vintage figures?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2017!

    Would it be possible in the future for figures that reuse the Trap Jaw left arm to have a hand that's a little tighter grip for better holding weapons?

    We'va reach a point where some weapons like Stinkor's, Blade's or Lizardman's should have a (re)painted version and some weapons still missing like SA He-man shield and sword.
    Is there a way to have a new weapons pak with these kind of misses adding some like He-man basic shield in Skeletor colors or Man-e-weapons in rusted gray (and why not a glow in the dark scythe for Scareglow and various crossbows for Mosquitor or Modulok) ?

    If Mattel is now willing to reveal all subscription figures in advance before/during the subscribing period, could Mattel take the extra leap and make it so we can be allowed to choose the sub incentive? The 200X head pack did nothing for me, and I didn't sub (I didn't own any of the figures the heads went to, and I'm sure there were other fans who didn't either). So what if you gave us a choice to vote on an incentive, where you can give us 2-5 options to vote on what would be more enticing for us?

    In a previous WTFWTK you stated, "We like the idea of sneaking in characters from other vintage brands that we own." Have Mattel's POP lookalikes SunSpell and Moon Mystic from Guardian Goddesses been considered as new POP for the current or 2016 toyline?

    "If" Mattel should achieve the first set of 8 carded motu giants
    and bet on the future;
    could you guys, reconsider the order these figures were offer back in the days?
    Don't you think that the more playful ones, remembered for their fantastic
    action features: Kobra Khan, Mantenna, Battle Armors to name a few,
    would much better entice the fanbase?

    Which faction — Masters, Evil Warriors, Horde, NA, POP or Snake Men — will have what you all think will be the figure that positively surprises everyone the most?

    Is there any plan to re-release the most in-demand figure on the second market, Shadow Weaver? It's an "A List" character and frequently goes for over $200 on the secondary market.

    Has Mattel thought about going the BAF(Build A Figure)route like Marvel and DC to offer more obscure figures?

    A lot of subscribers and customers want a second or even a third run of both Snake Men and Horde Troopers, prices in secondary market are unbelievable (I guess you guys are aware of the whole situation), with the line rebranding next year, what are the chances of making those 2 army builders an ever green product? Maybe they can be re-released with minor changes like, 2 identical troopers or green snake men but even with the same box, is there a possibility for this?

    We've seen several independent villains released from the Filmation He-Man cartoon (Shokoti, Nepthu, Plundor etc) but none from the She-Ra series. Will we see any non-Horde villains like Mortella, Hunga the Harpy or Baron Condore released in the future?

    2016 and beyond, could you please consider being a bit more dynamic with the MOTU/PoP SDCC offerings? Single carded or even two-pack offerings from a line that offers similar in-sub aren't necessarily exciting. I'm thinking vehicles, beasts, and props here.

    PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!

    For a 2016 line, would you concider bringing to figure form, such obscure proposed characters as, for example, the Snake Horde Troopers, seen on the cardback art for the vintage Strobo figure..?
    Leech sucks..!

    A very low-run MOTUC item is desired for a lot of fans: Battle Armor Faker.

    There is any chance to get a Battle Armor Faker in their own card? It also can include the Leo Toys version features in order to have the ultimate Faker with all the classic variations of the character.

    - Leo head (shadow eyed)
    - Orange Battle Armor
    - Orange Havok Staff
    - Orange Skeletor removable belt
