    WTFWTK 2.60 - 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 tmc1984.
    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. tmc1984:
    Do you have any packaging sticker plans for when you get to the three currently-allowed 1987 movie figures? I'm hoping for a movie logo sticker on the packaging akin to what we have seen with the 'space mutants' and 'powers of grayskull.'

    2. coptur:
    For those of us that don't want a smelly Stinkor is it possible to do an unscented version? For the mint on card collector the boxes could have stickers on the front identifying scented or unscented.

    3. ealo:
    Is there any particular method to picking re-release figures? Characters like Count Marzo already have been re-released even though their first release wasn't too long ago, while more recognized characters like Tri-Klops and Webstor just had the one release a long time ago.

    4. joseephus:
    Now that we know Megator dies and is brought back as a mindless zombie by King Hssss, was Megator originally the same complexion as Tytus, died, then came back as a green zombie? Or was Megator originally green, died, and will come back as some decaying zombie with rotted flesh and maggots coming out of his flesh? Just curious as to what kind of variant we may get of him in August.

    5. bcrduke:
    If you get around to making a Teela 2.0 (using the newest female buck and all associated pieces) would it be possible to receive two removable armor pieces in softer plastic than the original: the first being the same design as Teela 1.0, the second being the design seen for Blonde Teela in the early MOTU mini-comics like "The Ordeal of Man-E-Faces," "The Menace of Trap Jaw," "The Terror of Tri-Klops," and "The Tale of Teela?" It would probably only require a slight re-tooling of the existing Teela armor. We could use the head from Battleground Teela to create this true-to-design mini-comic Teela, and that could only mean more sales of Teela 2.0!

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

    So ask those questions!

    The main factions in MOTUC are the Great Rebellion, Heroic Warriors (Masters of the Universe), Galactic Protectors, Evil Horde, Snakemen, Evil Warriors, and Space Mutants. I know that the only figures that are approved and in development are through early 2012, but you have stated that you have a penciled out plan for the line through 2016. In this plan have you represented all of the factions with an army builder pack?

    Toyguru said Queen Marlena's body has new parts (possibly internal), but he would have to check with the design team to find out for certain which parts are new on her female buck. Can you ask design which parts are new?

    You have said that you leave design decisions (such as open left hands) to the design team, but can you PLEASE stop using open left hands on these figures? People don't like them, and they detract from the figures. It's annoying enough on the male figures, but you let the designers give catra an open left hand, and now we have a figure with a useless rubber claw.

    Hi Toy Guru, Since you said 200 plus bios were written at around the time Stratos came out, I was wondering if you care to share with us the names of 3 of your favorite bios of unannounced characters, whether they see the day of light or not, that were written up from that time.

    Do all Gar people have dark blue fingernails or is Keldor/Skeletor just the stylish type?

    How do you think the fans at SDCC will react to the four big MOTUC announcements?

    Given that concept characters and prototypes from the vintage line have been made into figures for the Classics line, is there a possibility that the Four Horsemen's concept/prototype of Zodak for the 200x line (greenish alien with skinny arms) could one day be made to add to the ranks of the Cosmic Enforcers?

    Sans hyper-anime detail, of course .

    Given the excitment over MOTUC product defects, what do you think our next big problem will be? Shoulders? Cracked plastic? Or something entirely new - perhaps dictated by logistics?

    We nervously anticipate the next big, ugly fail.

    Toyguru, thanks for all you do for this line. A few months ago, when there were only 2 announcements at SDCC, you said that Mattel still did not have the rights to make toys of Filmation-only characters. Since that point, 2 announcements have been added for a total of 4. Can we now expect that the rights to make Filmation-only characters have been secured? If not, can you please tell us so as to squash expectations.

    If you guys had access to Filmation characters in MOTUC, which ones would you love to do? Obviously Shadow Weaver is up there, but which others?

    Out of curiosity, someone asked about Goat Man from the Golden Books, and the answer was If we get to the Golden Book characters, we would love to do him...

    So, is there an actual possibility to get those rights even without Filmation rights, as the Golden Books used characters like Shadow Weaver, Madame Razz or Scorpia and if Goat Man is possible those three for example are possible too but you said you dont want to go for loop holes as you respect others rights?

    Dear Toyguru,


    What can you tell us about the Wind Raider item (prototype ?) that appears on the picture below ?

    Toyguru,
    Would Mattel consider making MOTUC playsets if they were part of the subscription but paid in equal instalments over the year - say paid over 11 months at (say) $25 or $30 per month, and then shipped in November in plenty of time to arrive by Christmas?

    This could be a way of realising the cost of such an awesome playset while locking in a high level of confirmed sales and managing the costs for fans so all the $$$ don't fall in one hit.
