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

    This past round of questions were selected by OnlyOneSkeletor.
    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. OnlyOneSKeletor: Is there any chance down the road of a character paying tribute to Snake Mountain, like what was done with Castle Grayskullman? There are fantastic fan artists that could help design it.

    2. Kid Canada: Now that 200x, Filmation and POP have all had mini-subs, are there future plans to do the same for New Adventures? That is the one era that is currently under-represented and could use the Four Horsemen treatment.

    3. BlueHeaven: Since it seems that all previously released characters aren't demanded enough to get a second production run, would you consider lowering the production quotas and increasing the prices to make them happen? Possibly with a preorder?

    4. smaug: Sssqueeze is coming with bendy arms which really makes his figure special and perfectly captures the essence of the character. Could we get new, bendy tentacles for Octavia as part of a future accessory pack or pack-in with another figure?

    5. mjw41: Now that Mattel has produced the Wind Raider & the complete Battle Ram, what are the chances of Mattel offering the Roton or Attak Trak, including their opening/closing canopies that came with the vintage model kits?

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

    So ask those questions!

    We need Orko's Uncle Montork and Orko's girlfriend Dre-Elle in the line. Would Mattel consider a Trollen 2 pack for 2016?
    Looking forward to a very bright 2016 with MOTUC Collectors Choice, He-Man and the Masters Of the Universe animated Filmation line, Thundercats & SNAKE MOUNTAIN

    Years ago Hasbro released a single Matt Trakker figure (of M.A.S.K. fame) done in the 3 3/4 style into their GI Joe line as a a nice surprise to fans. Around the same time in an older WTFWTK thread, it was then asked if Mattel would ever be willing to make a figure from another franchise in the Classic's style as either a sub incentive or exclusive. Bravestarr, Silverhawks, Blackstar, and Tigershawks were brought up, but were all shot down in favor of keeping slots open for MotU characters only. But we've seen some poor concept figures created into the line over the years that took up these slots that fans were unhappy with. So, instead of seeing Mattel employee's childhood created characters, or figures tooled to represent comic book industry personalities, can we ask for surprise characters like those other 80's properties to appear instead? Can we even hope to see any surprises like this at all, or are all the remaining MotUC slots being reserved for fan demanded MotU characters with little room for non-canon/franchise stuff?

    Thanks!

    You recently gave a very honest answer about the Widgets (no. lol). Can I ask that you do the same regarding the Twiggets?

    Will the Lazer light figures "whenever" they might be available be shipped internationally? ie original King Grayskull issue, and International/EU safety markings with toys that have electronics.
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    In the classic line, we were given only two Rock People/Comet Warriors (Rokkon & Stonedar), which made for a very small faction indeed. Can we expect to see others that were featured in other media (Filmation, mini-comics, etc) turned into figures at some point in the future? Granita, Pebblass, Bould-Or, Facet, or even a generic army builder two-pack would be great to help build up the ranks of the Rock People!

    Will the 2016 rebranded line be similar in SKU number to what we've seen in the past or will it be scaled back?

    We have tons of unique weapons, armors, and even heads that could be repainted or recolored. Can we look forward to some more unique accessory packs in the future?
    Examples would be Goatman's hammer, masked/helmeted heads, and higher tooled armors like Spikor's, Mesquitor's, Snake Face's.

    A damaged Faker head in He-Man's skin tone would be great.

    I know you can't get too specific since that would defeat the point of him being a chase figure, but can we expect Spirit Of Grayskull to go on sale sometime soon? Soonish? I think we're a bit surprised he hasn't been back since the initial sale. Also, could you limit him to 2 like you did with the Hover Robots, since that helped a lot of us get them?

    MOTUC has seen many independent Filmation villains from the He-Man series (Nepthu, Shokoti, Plundor), so can we expect to see any non-Horde Filmation villains from the She-Ra series? (Mortella, Hunga the Harpy, Baron Condore etc)
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Dylamug - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets - King Ahgo - Filmation Grizzlor, Mantenna, Leech, Modulok and Multi-Bot

    POP characters like Hunga the Harpy and Granita are popular POP characters that are still missing and fan demanded. Will POP be represented in a 2016 line?

    Quality Control issues seem to bring the line down and let the customers think that they are underestimated.
    How problems like Angella's eyes can happend if there is even a QC process ?

    When Filmation Hordak was revealed, there was a huge outrage by the fans since the figure did not come with Filmation style head, bone border cowl & armour ! What are the chances for these 3 missing items in the future ? Can we expect these by the end of MOTUC 2015 ? Or we'll have to wait for 2016 & beyond ?

    Since the inception of MOTUC, the fans have been told that the concept characters from the old Tomarts article and the ones featured in the Power and Honor Foundation's book were off-limits figure-wise due to uncertainty of Mattel's ownership over said characters. A handful of these concepts recently appeared in the Mattel-approved Art of Masters of the Universe book; does this mean that at least the characters that were featured in the Art Of book are now theoretically "on the table" for potential future figure releases?
    MOTUC Wishlist Dylamug, Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Karg, Andros, Monstroid, Skelcon(s), the new villains from He-Ro/Dare

    With both rebranding and new packaging being discussed for 2016, have those now in charge of the MOTU lines given serious thought to how many subscriptions from MOC collectors you're likely to loose with a 2016 rebranding/repackaging, and weighed that number against the number of online customers you can reasonably expect to gain due to that type of a refresh? This isn't retail and thus it seems to me that for a line like this you stand to loose more subscriptions than you're likel
