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

    This past round of questions were selected by Snake Hunter.
    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. Snake Hunter: Mini-Masters Moss Man will have a brand new wood shield. Will see a MOTUC version as a bonus accesory? (I suggest will Evilseed)

    2. King Tamusk: Since Battle Lion is among the A-list "oversized" items we are receiving in 2014/2015, can you give us any insight as to the potential for mounts for other high profile characters, like Hordak (Mantisaur), King Hisss (Tyrantisaurus Rex), Catra (Storm or Clawdeen), and Teela (Golden Unicorn "Charger")?

    3. nanoFatato: With a great figure like Rio Blast coming, will you tell us for sure that the bulky armour problem (like Hydron or Sea hawk) has been fixed? And I mean moving the opening tabs from the lats to the back of the figures, or another equivalent solution the design department can come up with.

    4. Steph: Are there any 200x/MYP characters figures (not beasts) slotted for the 2014/2015 road map?

    5. Coptur: Is there a design behind Seferus Kur/Horde Lord or is he currently still just a name?

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

    So ask those questions!

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

    When the new characters were introduced through the 30th Anniversary collection, it was said they were meant to expand the brand. Yet, the only character from the six of that series that gets featured, over and over, is the Mighty Spector (and seldomly Sir Laser Lot). Why are we not seeing Draego-Man, Fearless Photog, or Cy-Chop? Especially since Draego-Man is arguably the most popular and well received from that group and the Mighty Spector is arguably the least popular.

    When will we see Huntara? Is she going to be included in the 2014 sub since she won the vote?

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

    For instance, where would Double Mischief be placed if she was announced at the time of the poster being created?

    Personally, I love it and my display at home is in the order of that cross-sell poster. Great job on it.

    In the new mini comic, was that Dare pre-transformation or was that how he looks as He-Ro?

    Why was Skeletor carrying Floggs disembodied head in the latest mini comic and is this before or after his Hook'Em Floog apearance/body?

    Give us further insight into Keldor's behavior at the end of the new mini-comic. His attitude of apparent regret and defeatism seems quite unlike Skeletor; is this due to his split from Demo-Man and, if so, does this mean that Demo-Man had more sway over him than some of us thought?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    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 4-5 charges by one retailer in a 10 minute span can be seen as suspicious. Can this be changed in the next 3 quarters?

    You have previously said you have not verified sufficient demand to produce more Horde Troopers - however, as a subscriber, I can verify you haven't done the only truly valid research: asking your subscribers. You have all of our emails, why not send a blast email to all subscribers with access to a private poll? We are the audience that have proven a commitment to the line, we are the ones who should be asked directly. So how about it, TG?

    Why was Teela REALLY made Captain of the Guard? We keep hearing she's the top soldier but it takes a lot more than skill to be appointed such a promotion. It also takes a vast amount of experience and good judgement - two things that must be dozens of Eternian veterans have far more than she does. It makes one wonder if she got it on pure merit, or due to Randor's friendship with Man-At-Arms.

    Will Mattel ever release an art book of all the Create A Character (CACC) Contest entries? From the 80's contest and the most recent one specifically.
    HAVES: MOSS MAN, ADORA, Mantenna, King Randor
    WANTS: Whiplash, Stinkor, Trap-Jaw, Webstor
    Toyguru Collector Supreme posted December 12, 2013 "Can't understand what you are asking. Sorry."
    Toyguru Marketing Manager Mattel posted March 16, 2014 "Every great project from toys to movie and a TV usually need a fan base to support it and an "internal champion" that keeps it going through the system."

    Earlier we were told that 2014 was "The Year of the Horse", but no new steeds were revealed. Have plans changed, or can we expect to see another horse, or preferably a unicorn ready to charge into battle. (Sorry, shameless plug!)
    It's all been done before. Everything to say has already been said. Do me a solid and pretend I posted something witty and and original here

    TG and other Matty reps have made one notion very clear to us MOTU collectors- the expectation for the continuing of this line is dwindling. This is evidenced in numerous Q and A hypothetical where the answer is usually "depends on whether the sub meets threshold."

    Additionally, TG has noted that Castle GS was a monster to produce, manufacture and sell and it seen as the crowning achievement of MOTUC.

    So, if we hypothetically say that the line continues to be strong and meets subs every year AND Matty is eventually able to regroup its resources after Castle GS- how far out would the possibility for Snake Mountain or some other playset be? 3 yrs? 5 yrs?
