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

    This past round of questions were selected by wayne-klops.
    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. Barbecue17: Oo-lar was one of the best reveals at SDCC and one of my most anticipated figures in this line. So where does the name come from? I've heard rumors that it was originally a misspelling of Mo-larr that fans jumped onboard with. Is that true or is there some other source for origin the name?

    2. Wayne-klops: Is there any chance for figures who lost fan votes (Lord Masque, Tuskador, and Darius) to be made in some form in 2015 (out of sub, at SDCC, in mini sub?), or are these figures completely off the table at least until a hypothetical 2016 line?

    3. Ivan: We hear that it takes over a year (even two years) to produce a figure (from initial pitch to execs to final product in the store). Knowing this, is there a cutoff date for a decision on 2016? It would seem like it's approaching, if not here already?

    4. Zodak's new shoes: Are there any plans to create vehicles or giants for the mini line?

    5. Lord_Of_Destruction: Who came up with Despara? Was the concept created by DC and worked into the Classics bios, or was she planned for the MOTUC story from the start and DC saw the concept and brought it into the comic beforehand?

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

    So ask those questions!

    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    We've been told that while it's yet to be determined rather or not there will be a line in 2016 that it has been determined that even if the line does manage to continue in 2016 that it will no longer be named "Classics" and will get a rebranding, new packaging, etc. (similar to how DCUC became DC Signature Collection). My question is (presuming we get similar product in 2016) what if that rebranding isn't what the fans would want? What if we prefer that if the line continues that it continues with consistency and that we get the same packaging and continuation of the Classics name and story over a rebranded "Signature" type collection? Since Mattel is a company that listens to it's fans how do we as fans best express a preference (one way or another) to the higher ups who seem to have already decided this issue regardless of what happens in 2015 subscription sales? (Emails?, petitions?, posting in forums?). Who do we direct our preferences to on this issue?

    It looks like the 2015 sub is likely to go through. I understand that it is early to talk about 2016. But I wanted to ask about the possibility of seeing 2.0 versions of the defective MOTUC figures. Roboto, Green Goddess, and Snout Spout in particular seem to be disintegrating just a few years after being sold.

    I only discovered this line in 2012, and I was so excited to discover that you had made The Green Goddess, but then heart-broken to learn that she had an "exploding crotch" issue. IF the line continues into 2016 or even 2017, would you consider it a priority to create new versions of these three problematic figures?
    Top want list: Evil Seed, Snake Mountain Man, Mask of Power Demons, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Mini-Comics Beast-Man, 200x Beast-Man, Teela 2.0, Battle-Ram, Snake Mountain, & a hardcover collection of all the mini-comics.

    If there is no 2016 line, could the bios that were written for characters we never got but were already written be released?

    The inclusion of Arrow in MOTUC seemed like an odd choice given that we still haven't received a "beast" for The Evil Horde, for example, Storm and/or Clawdeen. This was equivalent to Mattel releasing a beast for He-Man's sidekick (e.g. Charger for Teela) before releasing a beast for He-Man's arch-nemesis (e.g. Panthor for Skeletor).

    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 as they would each be able to utilise existing bucks/tools?

    Before the line ends, will we learn an answer to the question as to whom the Oracle is and what, if any, relationship he has to Orko?

    Q: I know that Mattel still has 2015 figures to complete, but to date...who was the most difficult FEMALE figure to turn from a prototype sculpt into an actual toy?

    As the development cycle takes 18 months + is there already a plan on the table to unveil something new for 2016 for Masters at SDCC?
