    WTFWTK 2.116 - 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. Please save that for discussion threads, and Q&A answer threads.
    • 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.

    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 DJ Force.
    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. WDWFreak53: Thank you for bringing a MOTUC Castle Grayskull to us and by the holidays (for most) at that! I know that you said that no playsets are on the table right now. But if you ever can do something new, would something like an "add-on" smaller playset to the existing Castle be more feasible than a full-on new playset. (ex. a bone bridge)

    2. NanoFatao: I know that the 2016 roadmap hasn't been discussed yet, but if it gets the green light, would it be possible to consider some 2.0 figures based on interest from fans? Like a new version of Roboto, Green Goddess, Stinkor or King Hiss?

    3. wallbie: With Barbie and Hot Wheels being Hallmark Keepsake Ornament mainstays as early as 1993, it's safe to say Mattel and Hallmark have a good working relationship. Would Mattel be interested in a Keepsake Ornament based on He-Man & MOTU especially since other popular children's entertainment properties of the 80s are successfully being represented in these collectibles (i.e. Thundercats, Rainbow Brite, Smurfs, Ghostbusters, etc.)?

    4. Orko's Magic Hat: The loose ankles issue for the male characters in MOTUC has been corrected and has been a success, however the females still suffer from this problem as their ankle pegs have still not been covered and are visible. Are there any plans to have this corrected before the line is out? All my female characters from 2013 have loose ankles.

    5. enoch: The wings on Swift Wind is an exact replica of the wings from the birds of the 80s. Any chance of getting Screeech and Zoar since we already have the wings? I would love for the birds to be able to carry the figures.

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

    So ask those questions!

    We know the Wind Raider was not terribly successful for Mattel, but you took a really big chance by releasing the Sky High & Jet Sled pack last fall. Were sales of this set successful enough for you to consider something similar in the future? Perhaps something like a figure packed in with another small vehicle like Roton or Road Ripper? Or, thinking even smaller in scale, packs like a figure with Stilt Stalkers or maybe a Beam Blaster & Artilleray set?

    When Blade was announced (or rather his movie-sword teased), the color scheme of the sword was based on a repainted-for-charity version of the movie sword:


    When asked about the discrepancy between a movie-accurate sword and the presented paintmaster, Mattel said they would stick to the color scheme that the 4 Horsemen delivered:


    However, the final sword appears to have lost some color during production (most likely to save costs, but I will not digress how Mattel promised not to cut accessories or colors when upping the price of the figures)


    So if Mattel clearly deviated from the Horsemens paintmaster anyway, why didnīt Mattel go with the movie-accurate color scheme instead?

    What are the Chances of us fans seeing a few Filmation beasts like Molkrom, Colossor, Daimar the Demon and maybe shokoti's The sleeping Beast before the end of 2015 even if outside the sub?
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    In the most recent .org Q&A you said there were plans ahead for the CAC runner ups. Will you show any of the other entries and/or are we allowed to show them ourselves?

    *EDITED TO ADD*
    When I say other entries I mean ones the general public hasn't seen yet.

    Very excited about the new min-masters sets that are coming soon. In terms of a character selection should we expect to see just MOTU vintage figures in the line up or are there likely to be any characters from other media such as 200X, the 30th anniversay line or POP in the upcoming packs?

    Even though they are 2 different characters the Female avion characters "Hawke (200x)" and "Delora from filmation " have similiar looks. They both seem to draw equal support on forum votes which add up to a lot of interest in a fe-male avion. Has this been considered as to including one of them in the line up as an important and wanted Character.

    Are there any spots for new fan-demanded variants, such as a New Adventures/Galactic Protector She-ra or Force Captain Adora/Despara, included in the new road map?
