    AskMatty is live on Facebook

    So it appears Matty is opening up to questions via Facebook.
    Details are here: https://www.facebook.com/MattyCollec...53960769619844

    Thanks for posting.

    Answering 5 whole questions in a month, huh.

    I guess if they do it every month it's better than nothing...depending on what they choose to address.

    Not trying to Troll or start sumpin.... but it seems like an attempt to push He-org out of the way and go straight to their broad market audience through FB. I kind of hope they still do a He-org specific Q/A, but I have a feeling the FB one will replace the ones we see only here.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    Does anyone find this a little...odd?

    I mean just look at the number of questions already that someone has to sort through. It would just be much quicker to answer the questions as they appear on Matty. Even a monthly "here's what happening lately" post on their own site would help answer a lot of questions.

    I guess the "ignore fanbase" approach isn't working out that great???

    I'm sure this is just them adding more options for fans to interact with them.
    No reason to assume the worst out the gate!

    My thought exactly.
    If we want to see these figures get more public attention social media is one more way to see that happen. They really are behind the curve on this.

    This is true. More people will see these questions than visit the Org.

    Agreed on more exposure on the social media front. Plus, another thing to consider is this gives fans a chance to ask more questions for other brands. The Org Q&As are limited, for the most part, to MOTU and POP.

    Facebook is probably a better avenue than the Matty boards. TG used to answer a lot of questions (way more than five a month) on that forum, so I don't see the Facebook thing replacing the .org or any other He-Man website's Q&A.

    I was thinking this as well. More exposure is always good.

    This is true.

    In the past, the only time that other Mattel brands were brought up was when it might have included MOTU/POP - like Barbie, ImagiNext or Hot Wheels...
    Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?

    MOTUC NEEDS more TROLLANS !!!

    And what else do they currently sell on matty? If it was an ask Mattel I could see it, but matty is now a MOTUC sale site, aside from the odd old DC figure on clearance so who'd need answers on those?

    Yep, there's that. Plus people may want to ask about the lines that could be made from the brands they teased at SDCC. Or have follow-up questions about past brands. Or ask hypothetical questions about so many different things.
