    WTFWTK 2.52 - 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.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by AdultCollector,
    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. BlueStreak:
    Back in Round 37 of the Org Q&As you said that you were working to resolve the tax issues. Now, some fans were suddenly billed for tax on the December subscription charge as well as the direct store purchase for Buzz-Off. There were no notifications about this new charge and the answers from customer service have not been clear. Why is Digital River charging tax when many of us have not been paying tax before?

    2. Swanmarsh:
    Is it possible that Mattel may one day release the text of the original plot/script/whatever-exists for the unproduced 2nd and 3rd Powers of Grayskull mini-comics? This could be an excellent 'secret' for the back of a subscribers-only map.

    3. dark knight:
    Is there any chance to get posters at SDCC that serve as a check-list or that display upcoming figures? They could be like the pack-in posters from the original 80s line that showed the figures and vehicles.

    4. Sabertooth:
    In Pixel Dan's video review of reissue King Grayskull we have seen that a classic'ized version of 200X He-Man can be created by combining pieces of the reissue King Grayskull figure, the Man-at-Arms figure and the He-Man figure. Does this mean that a classic'ized version of 200X He-Man will not get a unique release in the MOTUC line?

    5. AdultCollector:
    Many fans who bought the Black Friday MOTUC figures complained about being sold "The Original" figures with poor paint apps, retaped mailers, loose joints, Battle Cat helmets that were either improperly attached to the figure or left flopping around in the box, and He-Man figures with poorly glued hair pieces. Which stock or run of figures are these? Are they previously returned figures? Unsold stock produced by the current toy production vendor? Or unsold stock produced by a previous toy production vendor Mattel no longer does business with? Also, why did quality control allow such a large number of flawed products to be released to the consumer, and what is Mattel doing to address this?

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

    So ask those questions!

    3. oICEMANo:
    With the inclusion of Vikor and the mention of Fighting Foe Men, could the "Valley of Gnarl" era create an opportunity for Mattel to produce some never-before-seen / brand new characters? Perhaps new characters could be created by the Four Horsemen. Or maybe Mattel could turn some more early concept art into new figures who belong to the FFM faction or who are allies of Vikor.

    We have thought about adding in some all new characters, but if we did so it would take a special event or release. Our goal is to finish the vintage lines as soon as possible and every completely new character takes a spot away from a vintage character release. (and yes we know adding 200X characters “hinders” finishing the vintage lins, but we know there are fans of these guys too and Classics is about this era as well, at least as far as character selection goes)

    We could potentially get to all new creations, but again it would take a very special event for us to do this.
    Hey there

    Thanks for the answer. I would like to follow up with this question,
    What kind of "very special event" would it take to go ahead with a few completely new characters, the Masters of the Universe 30th anniversary perhaps?

    Thanks for your time.

    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.

    You have said Filmation rights aren't in the cards at the moment. Several Filmation characters appeared in other media (story books, coloring books, comic books, etc.) Are you open to obtaining these rights to gain access to certain characters, or is this considered one of the "cheats" you aren't interested in?

    With the inclusion of the Fighting Foe Men into MOTUC's canon, when you eventually get to them, will they have their own faction sticker or will they just be shoehorned into the POG-verse? I would prefer to see a Fighting Foe Men sticker personally.

    Every time Songster is asked about he is mentioned as a joke figure. Have you thought about a serious take on the character?
    When will we get our Songster figure Mattel???

    This is more of a suggestion than a question, I asked Scott at the past Comic Con this question, he thought it was a good idea, but I figured he forgot by now.

    What is so great at Comic Con is seeing our Masters collection in such a fantastic display, the flight stands you show at Con have Stratos soaring while the ones you sell us are only have them hovering. I would like taller Flight Stands.

    We as fans would love do the same for our collection besides displaying them on plain shelves. I know castles are too expensive to do, but your planned dioramas could go beyond a weapons rack, I am hoping to see a Throne for Skeletor, or Throne Room for Randor and Marlena. Nothing big, but two thrones and some rounded stairs to stand Palace Guards on leading up to the thrones. Please think about it.

    For the large majority of MOTU & POP fans filmation has the best place in our hearts. But since the very begining of this Q&A (back in 2008) all the filmation related answers you gave were blank.

    Fan demand for the 'HE-MAN & SHE-RA CARTOON OST' has always been there and is actually increasing over time. Mainly because of the huge sucess of MOTUC and the fact that we don't have new media along this line. Once you can't comment if you're actually able to release it or not, fans assume you may have some kind of power over it and you would block any other company to release it.

    Are you able to stop other companies from releasing this pure jewel of fandom?

    Am I correct in deducing that both T. E. Scope and Mer-Man joined with Skeletor (not Keldor) after the creation of the mystic wall? I have been working on a massive Bio-Narrative, editing it all together as best I could at He-Man.Org and, while some may not like the notion, this is what I've surmised... Any help?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    She-ra's Tiara

    We know that the Bios have already been written and through them we have learnt about the origins of the He-man's outfit (techno vest), will the Bios reveal more information about She-ra's outfit? ... Mainly her Tiara?

    The prices of the DCU vs MOTU exclusive 2 packs at TRU went up in price from 29.99 to 34.99. Was this price hike caused by Mattel or Toys R Us?
