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

    This past round of questions were selected by sirsniffy.
    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. Jest-or: Since the development cycle takes 18 months or more, is there already a plan on the table to unveil something new at a future SDCC Mattypalooza panel for possible 2016 MOTUC release?

    2. Haephestus: With the emphasis on completing the vintage, non-variant PoP action figures (as opposed to beasts) in 2015, is there still a chance that Storm or Clawdeen will be released in 2015, especially since they would be able to utilize existing bucks/tools?

    3. No-Ah: I wanted to ask about the possibility of seeing 2.0 versions of defective MOTUC figures. Roboto, Green Goddess, and Snout Spout in particular seem to be disintegrating just a few years after being sold. If the line continues into 2016 or even 2017, would you consider it a priority to create new versions of these three problematic figures?

    4. InspectorZartan: Presuming we get similar product in 2016, some fans are not interested in rebranding (like a "Signature" type line) and instead want the same packaging and continuation of the Classics name and story. To who do we direct our preferences about this issue?

    5. Bonehead: If there is no 2016 line, will the bios be released that were written for characters we never got?

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

    So ask those questions!
    Please check out my gallery on Deviantart
    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    If the line continues, but is repackaged in 2016; what are the chances we would get collector friendly packaging that most fans want, instead of another blister card?

    If the 2015 sub sells in great and gets greenlit and Mattel desides to continue with the MOTUC's style figures in 2016 using the same size bucks structure only on different packaging Will Lord Masque finally get made?

    It would be a real shame for Shokoti not to have her Lord Masque.
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    The Etheria map and Light Hope's bio appear to give two conflicting origins for the character. The map states that the Trollans created him as a formless being of light, while Light Hope's bio gives him a real name and says that he gave up his original form. Can you elaborate on this, and is the figure meant to represent LH before or after he became formless?

    We have seen the artwork where Lord Choloh's beard streams down a long line of steps when Choloh is sitting on his gladitorial arena throne. Does Lord Choloh's beard have magical properties to grasp foes like Entraptra's hair, or is it just a normal, albeit lengthy beard?

    The Hover Bots are going to be a great army builder but also a traveling con item. That in mind. Can we expect that Matty will produce these sets in abundance or are we going to have to deal with a situation like the Horde Troopers?

    In previous "Ask Matty" posts and in the recent Roast Gooble Dinner podcast, Toyguru stated that characters from the new mini-comics, Son of He-Man (Dare), and the DC Comics would not appear in the 2014 or 2015, expressing they are for 2016 and beyond. Yet, there is still confusion, because characters like the Unnamed One (brought into the Son of He-Man story line) and Galactic Protector She-Ra (a new mini-comic variant) have been included in 2014.

    Now, you have previously verified when a character will not be made in 2014/2015, such as Masque, Darius, Tuskador, Kayo, etc. Can you please verify if characters like Dare, Skeleteen, Despara, Robowoman, Hans Hammer Holder, etc., will not be produced in 2015? This will clarify a lot, for the customers.

    Thank you.

    For the past couple of years, there have been declining sub sales. However, new lines (minis and giants) are being produced. If the sub sales are declining, why is more product being offered?

    Is there a chance of getting an updated poster that shows all the classics figures (like the one that came with Castle Grayskull)? *Either included with the line or that could be purchased seperately*

    If not a physical poster could there be a chance to get an updated version just on the MattyCollector website?

    With the line ending in 2015 and with the upcoming art book in mind, would Mattel consider to produce an art book specifically for Classics? This could feature hi-res photos of all the figures and accessories as well as the corresponding bios in chronological order, as well as Scott's existing behind-the-scenes blog entries and reprints of the mini comics that went with the figures (or at least the covers, to keep the content exclusive for owners of the figures).

    IF Mattel offers a subscription in 2016, will Mattel ensure that the sub-exclusive and the first three monthly figures (which are ordinarily revealed at SDCC to "sell" the subscription) are truly fan-demanded so that if the subscription does not proceed, those characters which the fans want the most will still be released in the quarterly slots (as was the plan for Lizard Man, Ninjor, Huntara and Oo-Larr if the 2015 Club Eternia subscription failed).

    Is there any chance we might be treated to a sort of classics omnipedia. Every bio in chronological order with a photo of the figures telling the entire MOTUC in one place. With perhaps the mini comics included as well?

    Now that we know the 2015 sub has gone through and we basically know which characters are a definite to show up in the sub, I feel we can get a more concrete answer to this following question, it's ok to say "no we aren't" to my question, my feelings won't be hurt. I just would like a concrete answer.

    Will we be seeing Starburst She-ra, Scratch'N'Sound Catra or Clawdeen in the 2015 sub?

    Thank you.

    Mattel has previously revealed that The Twiggets were in the original longer road map for Classics. Were the 200x ABC giants in the original road map?

    If, in a perfect world (and beyond 2015) you ever come to consider a Manticore / Sky Tree set;
    How do you think you'd handle this?It could be an amazing deluxe item ! For instance,
    how about make the tree some kinda unassembled shape so you guys can otpimize the box measurement.
    Definitely a must have to the brand providing at the same time a stunning diorama on our motuc shelves.
    Thanks for offerings these amazing toys.

    Will out of sub offerings be necessary to fulfill the promise of finishing our vintage collections in 2015 or is our sub guarenteed to do this? In other words as a subscriber will I walk away with a complete vintage collection or will I have to hunt down Chase figures early access and exclusives to do it?

    Since it's been said that 2015 will complete the vintage line-up, when you get to Dragstor, will he have a spinning wheel or will it be a sculpted armor piece?

    It has become evident that Crita is unlikely for 2015, despite being as A-list as you can get in NA. She has also been fan-demanded for years. Scott, himself, acknowledged that after Hydron & Flogg, Crita (and Mara) was the next most important NA character to make. Seeing as there is demand, despite her being NA, is there absolutely NO way to include her in 2015?? Throw NA fans a bone, as they, like the pop fans, tend to be resolute subscribers who have been super loyal to Mattel and the motuc line.
    A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    With Classics fading into the sunset in 2015, any chance of the line rebooting in the 3.75" scale, with the type of articulation the 4H use in their Power Lords line?

    Without Power Con this year and I heard you are not at NYCC in October... when will we see new reveals? Last year we saw 3 new reveals in August/September (Scorpia, Blade and Battle Lion). Is something like this possible this year to, also without a con? Would be great

    NAs Mara started out as an assistant to Master Sebrian but ended up as a strong fighter and valued member of the Galatic Protectors in the JETLAG cartoon.

    Her appearance changed too to show Mara is becoming more active but she wasn´t the only one. Crita changed a lot as well but we only know of Maras prototype and the prototype versions for the Galactymites and the Cleanon. So i would like to know if Mattel was planning to release Crita as figure as well in her new queen of the Cleanons outfit?
    *Peekablue *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither
