    WTFWTK 2.39 - 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.
    Mattel has also asked not to submit figure inquiries about unannounced figures (eg: When will we see [insert character name])

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

    This past round of questions were selected by MoViEfReAk,
    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. MoViEfReAk: If and when Mosquitor comes, will he have the small degenerated insect legs the Mini Statue had? They could be added to additional blood tanks, just like Webstor's extra legs were added to his back pack, and therefore be removable.

    2. PrinceAdam101: Considering the super-fast sellout for the weapons pack, I am hoping for more packs down the line. If that is so, would you consider adding new-colored capes from already existing molds? Keldor's and She-Ra's come to mind.

    3. Spectror: Back in the 80's, the 3 towers of Eternia (Eternia playset) came with a whole bunch of weapons. Can we expect these "Eternia playset" weapons to be made in MOTUC style?

    4. The.Idea.of.Evil: Will there ever be a MotUC figure released with a 200X paint scheme before its original vintage colors? A lot of fans wanted Evil-Lyn to have her 200X purple color scheme, and a number of fans hope the Sorceress will have her 200X aqua/white/gold colors before a release of the vintage blue/white/orange regardless of her sculpt.

    5. radrcks: Are there any chances that down the line there will be a silver version of She-Ra's shield to go with Adora's silver power sword?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Do you plan on making any other style figures besides MOTUC style sometime in the future? If not, why not ask fans at SDCC what other type of MOTU figures they may want so we do not see a repeat of the Attitubes...which I would have bought by the way.

    The latest wave of PoP-figures had additional swords shown on the cross-sell-art on the cardbacks, but didn't come with those (Netossa/ Spinnerella). If and when we get to them, will they have those swords?

    My question and I guess many foreign collectors like to know this...

    I really do like this line and of course I'm very happy that the 2011 sub will have everything included. Unfortunately, for foreign subscribers, with the 2010 sub you offered only the very cheap shipping option and a very expensive shipping option.
    Earlier it has been asked if you could offer cheaper, save shipping like USPS Priority Mail. Will you offer a mid-priced shipping option for foreign collectors for 2011 Club Eternia?
    This would be very good news, especially because the larger scaled items are way too expensive to ship. Remember that most European collectors face very high custom-charges as well. In many European countries shipping costs are even calculated in customs.

    When placing an order on Matty we know that "products are not guaranteed until you have reached the "Order Completed" page". Any updates on when this will be changed so that once a figure is in our cart it means it is ours, even if the rest of the stock sells out before we're able to get to the "Order Completed" page?

    With a preponderance of figures that would require 100% original tooling (Cringer, Ram-Man, any of the Horde and Snake Men), is there any merit to the idea of putting those figures in the giant/beast price range to speed their creation and offset the cost involved with making them?

    When Mekaneck and Entrapta arrive, will they have vac-metallized parts just like their vintage counterparts had? Part of the visual appeal of classic Mekaneck was the cool goggles (vs. the bland see-through plastic goggles of the 2002 Mekaneck). And Entrapta really sticks out in the classic PoP line due to the unique look of her being armored in gold (vs. the toned-down hues used in the PoP style guide or Filmation cartoon).

    G'day Toyguru, thanks for considering our questions.

    It seems Dragon Blaster Skeletor is one of the more popular vintage variants. Can you confirm whether the 4 Horsemen and your team have seen the suggestions on He-Man.org forums that a MOTUC version of Dragon Blaster Skeletor come with an articulated dragon who can both sit on Skeletor's back and also be separated as a posable creature - just as the dragon was represented in the vintage mini-comic? Is this something that could be considered?

    It seems that many fans ordered the reissue of Mer-Man only to have some of the remaining stock from the 1st issue of Mer-Man without startburst or white mailer box show up at their door step. Some didn't mind, but there are those of us that order the re-issue simply because we want all versions even if the only difference is a starburst that says "The Original". Can Mattel start listing the 1st and 2nd issue separately much like they did with Moss Man's flocked and UNflocked ears?
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Now that there is a genuine interest in NA. Could we also see characters that were not released like the un-produced Mara figure.

    We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!

    Which figures released so far will not be getting a re-release?
