    WTFWTK 2.63 - 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 Drewsky.
    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. Drewsky:
    The Four Horsemen first made a He-Man figure that everyone was impressed with at SDCC that helped start the MOTUC line. Then they made a Battle Ram and now we have a vehicle planned for this year. So, what are the chances that the 4H will surprise us again with something they sculpted under their own initiative?

    2. TheFallen:
    Is there any chance to do a Scareglow variant of a glow-in-the-dark skeleton encased in a translucent plastic MOTUC buck?

    3. Toymaker:
    If/when we get to barbarian He-Man (who may or may not be Oo-Larr) would it be possible to get a 2nd Ceril head with him? Ceril was in the DC comics. He may not be well known enough to get a separate release, but he could easily share a body with barbarian He-Man giving fans who want every character a chance to get him.

    4. bskcase:
    So far we've had every core figure get a re-release except the original Teela. What's up with that?

    5. grenadaspice:
    Hey TG, I was wondering when you all get to making NA He-Man & Skeletor, do you plan on calling them simply "He-Man" & "Skeletor" as it was on their packaging or do you plan to add on a fancy moniker/adjective to their name, or perhaps even use the NA initials like "NA He-Man"?

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

    So ask those questions!

    You probably can't give us specifics but are the MOTUC sales still growing, holding steading or dropping?

    There are some really unique and awesome Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power characters from Brazilian MOTU and PoP comics. They were made by a company called Editora Abril. All the comics are in Portuguese, but does Mattel have the rights to make these unique characters?

    Here's a link with all the fine print to one of the comics, in case you want to/need to investigate. Thanks!

    Will you ever consider offering the iconic costumed figures of She-Ra & Wonder Woman in a MOTUC vs DCUC Two Pack? Mattel must be aware of the real support out there for this pairing when reading related threads around the net on this topic.

    Is there any chance we'll get a reissue of the original Teela before the end of the year?

    Have you ever considered rereleasing the palace guards set but including four different heads than the first release? This would give army builders a chance to further build up their armies while keeping it from looking too uniform.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Given the news that Mattel now has Filmation rights, will MOTUC be going more for the major Filmation characters (Scorpia, Sea Hawk) or do the minor characters have a chance at getting made (Malik, Shokoti, Kittrina) just as soon?

    On Battleground Evil-Lyn, one of the major reasons people wanted an Evil-Lyn based on the MYP cartoon version was so that they would have an Evil-Lyn who didn't share Teela's dress. Why did you decide to go ahead with a version styled loosely after the MYP colour scheme (MYP-Evil-Lyn's base dress colour was purple, not black and her spot colour was gold rather than pink/red), yet not bother with the dress to fit with her father (the Faceless One)'s clothing that made many people want an Evil-Lyn variant in the first place? And if you had a spot for an Evil-Lyn variant that didn't have the tooling budget for a new dress, boots, armguards and the other things that distinguished that version of the character, why not do the Asian, wearing a purple/blue dress, Filmation colour scheme, which COULD be achieved by adding a cape and little else to a repaint of the existing version? (a cape that the MYP version didn't actually have - that design featured a long hessian skirt)

    Can you pack the mini-comics in a way that MOC collectors do not have to open the package in order to read the comics? Or can you at least offer the comics in PDF format on MattyCollector so that everyone can read them?

    For the 6 new non-sub figures coming in 2012, will you be putting a bright orange NEW burst on the packaging to indicate these are new? Much like when product came out back in the day? I think that would be a fun nod to when new product used to come out!

    Will the old mini-comics be re-released (preferably in bound hardcover book instead of a trade paperback) ? Maybe even in a slightly bigger format ?

    This is a question regarding the cost of subscriptions. For future subscriptions, would it be possible to break down the total cost of the year's worth of items to even monthly payments over the course of the year instead of being charged more on months when large items or extra figures come out and less when we only have a single figure being shipped to us? I realize that it is probably too late to do this for the 2012 subscription, but maybe for 2013? This would be helpful for fans when a lot of items come out at one time (especially additional items not included in the subs).

    Now that Mattel has aquired Filmation Rights, Will Kudok Ungol be used as a person mentioned in The Sorceresses bio, and can we expect a figure of her since it would be a simple redo of the Sorceress figure?

    Since I didn't see that any new stands were revealed at SDCC I will ask my question from last time again -
    Since the Castle Grayskull stands have been constantly available for several months and the line continues to grow, will the CG stands (and any other future faction-based stands) remain constantly available or will they suddenly disappear? Ideally, I would like to have a stand for each figure based upon their faction, but if that is not going to happen I want to be able to acquire the CG stands as I can afford them and the line grows.

    With the aquisition of Filmation rights, is it in the cards to do retreads of already done main characters (Teela, Man-At-Arms, He-Man, ect) as more Filmation accurate? For instance, with the Mustachioed Duncan head, a royal Guardsman body, & Man-At Arms armour you could already make a Filmation Man At Arms, though the colours arent perfect. And as has been infered the TRU 2 Pack He-Man is kinda basically already Filmation He-Man, if you want to see it that way.

    Are there any plans to do Actual Filmation retreads? Not asking for confirmations on characters, but if you could mention if the Filmation characters Toys are to be the never produced Filmation characters, Filmation style retreads of Previous Vintage toy characters, or both?

    At Mattypalooza it was implied that the only hold out, rights wise, was the 1987 MOTU movie. Can you confirm Mattel has the rights to characters from the UK MOTU Ladybird books?

    Now that Filmation characters are game since the rights were acquired, how will they have an impact on the "MOTUC roadmap" that was supposed to go until 2018 ?

    Seeing as there's a lot of Filmation characters to translate into MOTUC figures, can we kill two birds with one stone- and get a Lord Masque & Shokoti two-pack as one of the two-pack subscription slots?

    Couldn't Mattel have come up with a solution to the problem of Global fans not being able to enter the create-a-character contest?? Varying copyright laws should not come into effect considering that you have to waive all rights to the design/character entered anyways regardless if you're a US citizen or not. This leads me to believe that there is more to the decision than just "varying competition rules from country to country".

    Hey Toyguru, now that you have the rights to characters from the cartoons, what New Adventures figures would you love to see in toy form?

    Does the acquisition of Filmation rights grant access to characters from He-Ro, Son of He-Man; ie, He-Ro (Dare) and Kay-La?
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    Since Filmation rights were aquired and at the panel, it was said that you don't have rights to the 1987 movie, Is Mattel actively pursuing the '87 movie rights, or is that something that will simply never happen?
