    WTFWTK 2.54 - 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 Eamon,
    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. nanoFatato:
    When/if Slush Head shows up, is possible to make a fillable helmet? This way it can be filled with water directly by collectors, avoiding all the security problems that comes with toys sold with liquid. The same could be done for Mosquitor.

    2. zodak74:
    Are vehicles from the 2002 line on the table for re-doing in MOTUC style (War Whale, Battle Ram Chariot, etc), or just
    the original MOTU toys (Wind Raider, Attak Trak, etc)?

    3. motufan425:
    For characters such as Sweet Bee, Flutterina and Peakablue who have long hair as well as the wings on their backs, how will their hair be designed as to not hinder the wing movement?

    4. Sabretooth:
    When MossMan was flocked you mentioned that you flocked some test-figures prior to that just to see how flocking
    works with all the MOTUC articulation. Did you try to test flocking on BattleCat/Panthor too? If so, will you please post pictures of this test-flock so that fans can see how a flocked MOTUC Panthor would potentially appear?

    5. CanadaClassics:
    The Palace Guards 2-packs as army builders are fantastic because of their many variations. When/if you guys get to the Horde Trooper, will you create enough "variation" to make him a 2-pack? Or will he be released as just a single monthly figure with a very large production run?

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

    So ask those questions!

    I missed out Beast man any chance to put him on sale again?
    And for the next subscrition I'd prefer the exlusive sdcc figure was included into subscrition .
    This 'cause during the sdcc day many people are on holiday and most of them are prevented to buy the exlusive

    My question is:

    Master Sebrian is mentioned in Butthead's bio. Is he available for the MOTUC line or can he at least be referenced as he was in the bio?

    Dear Toyguru,

    I'd would like to know :

    Would you put Spydor in the category of the beasts, or in the category of the vehicles ?

    What about Stridor ?

    Why isn't She-Ra version 2.0 going to include the Filmation/Modern/200X head? Will She-Ra 2.0 come with the Filmation/Modern/200X tiara, so that we can still get She-Ra with her most iconic look? If not, will the original She-Ra be reissued for those of us that missed out the first time and want She-Ra with her most iconic look?

    We were told that when making 200X characters, they would be put through a 'machine' to make them fit in more with the vintage look, yet after several 200X figures, they stand out like sore thumbs thanks to the anime hyper detail. Has Mattel gone back on their word regarding that?

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Eldor, Spinnerella, Mermista, Peekablue, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Battle Ram, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted for Filmation Sub: Madame Razz with Broom, Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    You have already made figures based off of prototype figures, concept sketches, and mini-comic characters. My question is, when can we expect an announcement regarding figures based off of the vintage artwork? Examples being The Wind Raider Pilot from the vintage poster, The Monogram Riders from the model vehicles boxart, or The CardBoard Robot from the 80's Castle Grayskull playset.

    Will you PLEASE, PLEASE consider releasing either a Granamyr, Procrustus, or Ice Hacker figure in 2012? PLEASE?! (Of course, you could also release all three of them in 2012, too....)

    Not to bribe, but I'll give someone a dolla if they choose my question!

    Consumers and subscribers feel bamboozled by the unannounced shift from UPS ground shipping to USPS via Cornerstone Logistics. In February, the majority of us are receiving our packages more than a week later than what we were used to with UPS, and in some cases the packages are being severely mishandled and arriving damaged. Mattycollector never gave us the option to choose before making this switch- so, based on the overall negative reaction to the sudden switch in shipping, will Mattel give us consumers the option to choose which method of shipping we would prefer? It would greatly improve customer relations.

    Hi Toyguru.
    I have a question about Crystoll, he was Karatti's original concept. The concept looked completey different from Karatti, making him look like a totally different character, he even had a different name.

    Since you have made concept art characters like Vikor I was wondering if Crystoll is being considered. Does he have a chance to show up in MOTUC as a new character?

    Here is a pic:

    SLUSH HEAD FINALLY SHOWED UP IN MOTUC YAY!!!

    When you release Gwildor, would he come with the same Cosmic Key that comes with Preternia Disguised He-Man or would he come with a Classic update of his vintage update? I like the idea of making the keys different since there were 2 Cosmic Keys in the movie & some people who say that Gwildor should come with his vintage counterpart like the rest of the figures.

    why not to organize a collection of money to buy filmation rights from CM?
    All the fans ,in my opinion,would give 20 dollars at least to buy them.
    The money collected would be aggregated with that Mattel would be willing to pay.
    So we all could add Shadow weaver and Scorpia to our Motu collection...and more other character.

    Confirm or deny or unknown at this time.
