    This past round of questions were selected by Orko's Magic Hat.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!!!

    1. Shokoti’s Slave: Why were we not given Early Access for the SDCC after-party sale like we were all told we would be? It is one of the perks of the subscription, after all.

    2. mjw41: Based on what was shown at SDCC, January 2016's Collector's Choice sub figure Lord Masque is painted with the wrong colors. Would the new Matty Team have his colors corrected to more accurately match his Filmation look before he goes into production?

    3. Penny Dreadful: Will you ever release the three main Twiggets from the She-Ra cartoon, perhaps as a 3-pack? They were in almost every episode. If you make them, I'll totally buy you ice cream sandwiches at Power-Con next year. Thanks!

    4. No-Ah: 2017 will be the 30th anniversary of the 1987 He-Man movie. Have you looked into acquiring the rights and permissions which would be necessary in order to release a '87 movie mini-sub or similar offering in 2017? If not, please do so!

    5. Invicta: It has been announced that both Laser Light figures and the Snake Mountain playset will have electronics. In the past, Matty Collector has not shipped toys with electronics over seas. Has something changed or is about to change for shipping toys with electronics, or are these items only for American consumers?
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2018!

    Given the fact he would be a 100% new tool, is it possible we might eventually get a figure of Dylamug? and if so would he be in a semi-annual oversized slot?

    Hunga the Harpy, Webstor, Kobra Khan, Leech, Grizzlor, Mantenna, Rattlor, Catra Cat Form, Ram Man, Count Marzo, King Miro, Twiggets, Frosta, Kothos and Admiral Scurvy.

    Is there a chance we will see concept characters such as the Horde Mummy or Dylamug any time soon? If so will it be a separate sub?

    I understand that this may be considered a controversial question, but seeing as how MOTU is mostly an adult collector's line, has there ever been talk of having a gay character in the franchise?

    Some MOTUC figures have serious design flaws and are in need of an update in the opinion of many fans. Is there a chance for potential Classics-style 2.0 versions of flawed figures like The Goddes (non-translucent plastic, added articulation), Rio Blast (with hollow chest), Intergalactic Skeletor (with corrected shoulders and armor) and other flawed non-Filmation figures? Or are variants from now on exclusive to the Filmation-style "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" line?

    With so many POP horses left, are you looking at ways to release items like these that have minimal new tooling, yet may not be popular enough to make it into a collector's choice subscription? There are definitely those who want want them, and with that horse buck just sitting there it would be pity to never be able to get them.

    This is a question about the Filmation add on subscription. In Motu Classics. All female characters - teela, Evil Lyn, She-ra, Adora etc. are all built on the Teela buck, which is pretty amazonian and very different from the more slender Filmation looks of these characters. Keeping them on this already existing buck would not be very Filmation accurate. Can we expect an updated, more Filmation accurate buck for the Filmation ladies with high heels and narrower waists? This could be a good way to correct / refresh some of the earlier figures with disappointing loincloths (Adora).

    Now that the 2015 "road-map" has been completed, is there a new one? If so, how far does it go? When are the road maps re-evaluated?

    Have you considered releasing figures with extra heads/accessories to create other characters that share similar looks or even to army-build factions of generic warriors?

    For example, Filmation Hawke and Delora are identical except for their heads, while Hunga's harpy sisters use virtually the same body as hers and would only require a new head or two to also create an army of harpy warriors.

Leech, entrapta, , moss man, icer , buzz off, whiplash, webstor, prince adam, rattlor, mekaneck, stratos ram man, frosta, bow, shadow weaver, catra, catra frosta, panther form ,Mermista, glimmer, Angela and perfuma.

    As a German MotU fan since 1985 I was very pleased to see the black-red Anti He-Man from the German audio play "Anti-Eternia" as a MotUC figure at SDCC 2015 - thank you for this gesture to the German fanbase! Can you confirm the rumor that he will be the chase figure 2016 or will he be released otherwise?

    Would Mattel consider releasing an 'armor pack' as a fix for the figures affected by the 'bloated armor syndrome'?
    Not all said figures are worth a 2.0 release and not everybody has the skill to fix the armors by themselves..
    An armor pack would help in solving the issue for many characters in one strike.

    Assuming that the new He-Man and The Masters Of The Universe 2.0 Filmation animated sub passes and is continued in 2017 would the character offerings be just from The Filmation He-Man show or can we expect to get Characters Like She-Ra and also an accurate Filmation Hordak With His Filmation Bone Armor, Bone Collar, Filmation head and swappable arm to accurate Filmation arm cannon.

    Although all of the humanoid characters from the vintage MOTU figure line will have been released by the end of 2015, we're still missing an entire faction in the form of the Meteorbs. Obviously tooling costs will prohibit all of the Meteorbs from being updated, but are there any plans in place to see at least one or two Meteorbs in the MOTU Classics line in some form?

    Seeing that we're "stuck" with the (unpopular to some) SOH figure of Dare in 2015's December slot; would it be possible for Skeleteen to be made? I may not be a fan of the character, but he IS KIND OF NECESSARY now that we are getting Dare.

    Why did you choose for the Classic Snake Mounatin the same Design that was already used for the Icon Heroes Version and not the Filmation or 200x Design?
    In all other medias in the last 10 years (i.e. the DC Comics or the MOTUC Mini Comic) Snake Mountain looks like the MYP version, so it would be consequent to use it for the actual toy.

    By including Dare as the December figure is it possible for 2016 (as part of a possible add-on sub) or in 2017 that we could see other figures from the SOH pantheon made as figures? Possibly Skeleteen, Gas Bag, et. al.?
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    As the name of the upcoming Filmation line is technically named for the "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" cartoon, is it possible to get certain characters from the "She-Ra" cartoon included as well (especially the core Horde members and Snake Men who have a unique cartoon look as compared to their MOTU toy versions)?

    Any chance of seeing true 2.0 figures released in the Classics style? The new Filmation line does not match the Classics style. It would be cool to see the original Beast Man released in a bright orange color. Skeletor with Kobra Khan boots and forearms, He-Man with the vintage style head and brick red boots/shorts, MAA in his vintage toy colors, etc

    At the very least you should find a way to get the vintage He-Man head sculpt out in greater numbers, including a blue version for Faker

    I noticed that there wasn't a map or cross-section diagram shown at SDCC for the Collector's Choice subscription. Will this additional perk of subbing be discontinued, moving forward?
