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

    This past round of questions were selected by He-Dad.
    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. Vid.tracey: For the last figure in the 2015 classics line, have you considered a commemorative package, just like we did at the start of the line with King Grayskull. It would be a fitting tribute just as you did with Doomsday from DC Classics.

    2. He-Dad & Wolfatthegates: What are the chances of seeing a DC variants of Masters characters such as Goddess Teela from the Eternity Wars in MOTUC or a rebranded MOTU line?

    3. 13977: Would you post the 1988 He-Ro Son of He-Man pitch/bible on the MattyCollector.com for fans to read? Alternatively, perhaps make it available via a link/code on the back of the mailer boxes like you did for some issues of the DC comic? Not only is this a piece of Masters of the Universe history that fans would love to read, but it would also help to promote the characters included in it such as He-Ro, Skeleteen, Darius and other NA characters etc.

    4. Bigsexy_j: Would you revisit adding the monthly figures to the Early Access sales?

    5. Uncle Montork: Have you considered retiring the "chase figure" going forward, starting with 2016? A number of fans do not feel the concept is "fun" and instead sours their collecting and toy buying experience.

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

    So ask those questions!

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

    Can fans hope for more 200X retooled releases of older figures like what was done for Battle Armor King Hiss (i.e. a true 200X Evil Lynn, 200X Skeletor, 200X King Randor, etc)? Or is Mattel only interested in tooling unreleased characters from that era/roster? If there are no plans for the 200X line after the upcoming six figure sub, would Mattel continue to give us 200X alternate head packs at the very least?

    Thanks

    Now that we have the Wind Raider & Battle Ram in MOTUC's Would Mattel consider doing the Roton & Attack track with tops that open and close the way they were designed just like the Model Kits?
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    Will the packaging for 2016 figures retain character bios? Would you consider hiring James 'Busta Toons' Eatock to write them? (James writes excellent bios for Pop Culture Shock's MOTU statues)

    Once Classics is over at the end of this year and the line is re-branded, will it be possible for the new line to include new versions of characters which were considered sub exclusives in years past? For example, would a new and improved version of Shadow Weaver be something which you would consider doing? Or are those characters off the table now for all time? I note that a new version of King He-Man, who was once a sub-exclusive, was slated to be included in the minis sub.
    Top want list: Green Goddess 2.0, Snake Mountain Man, Mask of Power Demons, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Mini-Comics Beast-Man, 200X Beast-Man, Horde Wraiths, Skeleton Warriors, Battle-Ram, Snake Mountain, & a hardcover collection of all the mini-comics.

    With both rebranding and new packaging being discussed for 2016, have those parties now in charge of the MOTU lines given serious thought to how many subscriptions from MOC collectors you're likely to loose with a 2016 rebranding/repackaging, and weighed that number against the number of online customers you can reasonably expect to gain due to that type of a refresh? It seems to me that for a line like this you stand to loose more subscriptions than you're likely to gain if you continue the line but repackage it as "something new". This isn't retail.

    I have noticed that the ankle tilt articulation (side to side, not front to back) articulation has been noticeably cut back or eliminated on recent figures (just compare Spirit of Grayskull to Snake Armor He-Man), would it be possible to see it return on future figures?

    There are rumours that 2016 will only include 1-2 female characters. With 2014 setting a record of four in the monthly spots, can you debunk these rumours by telling us how many we can expect in 2016?

    Thrilled to see Point Dread is coming - will we be seeing more Castle Grayskull "add-on" packs in future (e.g. sculpted dungeon grate, heavy bag, candle stand, etc)?

    For the new 2016 line, would you consider having character box art for each individual figure? Similar to how the DC Signature line had on the back of the boxes.

    The recent Snake Armor He-Man & Battle Armor King Hssss two-pack is really amazing, but noticeably absent is Snake Armor He-Man's shield. Is it possible that this could be include with an other figure as we've seen with other bonus accessories in the past?

    The Four Horsemen and Mattel love releasing cut or missing heads and accessories with other characters down the line. Netossa was released without her mask/face plate she was shown with in all media except her cartoon appearance. Is it possible we could see this fan-requested piece released as a pack-in with another character at some point?
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Toy Guru was open to issuing more Snakemen but in different colors down the road.

    Is that still an option? Is there spot for another 2 pack?

    Regarding the announcement of the 200x sub, on the Mattycollector page it mentions that Grizzlor would have his 200x faceplate that was shown in Toyfare a few years back. However, that was not shown at NYTF. Can you confirm if that head is going to be part of the announced headpack? If not, will we see it with another release? It's something that's been teased to us twice and we'd really like to get it! ;-)
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Lodar, Peekablue, Twistoid, and Despara!

    With the reveal of the 200x minisub, are there any other 200x characters planned for 2016, such as Miro or a Horde Wraith?

    So with the 200X Roboto head coming, is a re-issue with corrected shoulders far behind? I have not opened mine in hopes of this, lets face it....IT'S AN EYESORE!!!! ...also a trade-in of sorts for us loyal subscribers would be nice too...

    For the 2016 Club Eternia subscription, would you consider offering an "all-in" premium sub option? Meaning, that those that choose this option, are guaranteed to receive every figure, excluding any potential out of sub vehicles or sets, made in 2016 which would include the chase, travel, sdcc and holiday items in addition to Club Eternia.

    The Snake Armor He-Man headsculpt is a great improvement over the original Classics He-Man head sculpt. Might we see this 200X head again on variants such as Ice Armor or Mega Punch He-Man, or with a future single-carded Prince Adam figure, if these are ever released?
