    WTFWTK 2.49 - 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.


    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 Swanmarsh,
    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. Kagamigod:
    You stated in a recent Q&A that when you do get around to doing NA He-Man, he will be a bonus figure. But it was previously stated that bonus figures are mainly repaints with very little new tooling. NA He-Man actually requires a lot of new tooling such as his armor, shield, helmet and sword. Has anything changed in regards to bonus figures with more tooling?

    2. Steph:
    According to Toyguru, 2011 is going to feature at least 4 females. My question is, is Mattel going to explore new advertising venues to reach out female collectors? So far, SDCC, Toyfare, and the DC comic movies are pretty much aimed at the male audience. Or instead, is there a plan to make the upcoming POP ladies appeal more to the current male collectors who refuse to add pastel colored characters to their collections?

    3. Reboot:
    In the past, you've said that doing a Sword of Power that matched Adora/She-Ra's Sword of Protection (i.e., the same design as the sword that came with those figures, minus the jewel) was out of the question. Considering that you've now said that you would consider doing an altered Sword of He with a future He-Man variant to give it a handgrip ala Tri-Klops' sword, would you also now consider doing a Sword of Power akin to She-Ra's, since "anything is possible"?

    4. willykfg:
    If there are any vehicles produced for the Classics line, will they be motorized like the Attak Trak or free-rolling like the Laser Bolt? Many fans would love motorized vehicles if possible.

    5. Swanmarsh:
    In the vintage DC Comics Presents comic included with the Superman/He-Man DC vs MOTU 2pak, Beast Man refers to "Choloh's beard". Much like how the "Unnamed One" was mentioned in only one mini-comic, this seems to be the only reference to Choloh. Is the Matty team aware of and does Mattel have the rights to the "Choloh" character and has the Matty team given any thought to including Choloh (and the secret of his/her beard) in the MOTUC bio storyline?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Given that you've said that you "lost [your] shirts a bit on King Hsss", implying his "almost two bodies" arrangement was a one-off, where does that leave Mermista, who you've said in the past will have a similar arrangement (albeit for the lower half, to swap legs & mermaid tail, rather than the upper body)? Not asking when, but is she still going to be a standard ($20) figure, or will she fall into the oversized ($30+) sku?

    Are there any future plans for Hordak's riding companion, Mantisaur, to perhaps see the light of day given the releases of Battle Cat and Panthor?

    In a future weapons pack is it possible for us to get Battle Armor He-man's Armor in Gold? By that I mean the 3 plates, Front, and back pieces in gold were it was silver but keeping the "H" symbol and using the exact same mold to make it. Also probably throw in the He-man ax in gold to go with it if you want as well.

    When we were told that the 2011 sub figure was gonna be someone from the mini-comics, fans were clamoring for a character like Lodar or Geldor, so there was a bit of a letdown when it ended up being another He-Man variant. So, my question is, besides Preternia Disguised He-Man, who not everyone will be able to obtain, are there any plans to introduce characters from the mini comics into the toy line for 2011?

    Not sure if this has been asked or not. But here it goes:

    After Demo-Man was merged with Keldor. Who is now more in control? Is Skeletor's ambitions: Keldor's or Demo-Man's?

    We still get weapons made of soft rubber and usually they are quite warped.. when this will end?
    Is it so hard to use hard plastic on guns, swords, clubs, etc.?
    MOTUC needs:Tung Lashor, Rio-Blast and rest of the Hordes!

    WANTED: Minicomics !!! Swords NEEDED !!! MY FEEDBACK

    With MOTU's 30th anniversary fast approaching, would you consider a special re-release of some Masters Of The Universe Classics figures (ex. the original 8) on 80's vintage style cards to commemorate the event?
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Vehicle pricing?

    Since Castle Grayskull's price has been estimated to be $200-$300 (when and if it happens) and figures/beasts run from $20-$40, what is the estimated prices of the upcoming vehicle(s) (i.e. small {Sky Sled}, medium {Land Shark}, large {Spydor})?

    Is there any chance that future weapons packs might include classically colored gray/silver Power Swords? The multi-colored swords are fine, but there's simply not enough of the classic to go around, even with half-swords. (Adam, BA He-Man, Preternia He-Man, Wun-Dar)

    Roboto has been one of the most dissapointed version of all MOTUC figures (outsized jaw, poor control quality, soft plastic weapons). We can get a 200X figure in MOTUC in order to fix a better version?
