    Questions you would like collectors to ask Mattel at Toy Fair

    Since ToyFair is being held for a couple more days, let's fire away some questions collectors can ask Mattel!

    To contribute:

    * Any chance we can get vintage styled heads to display with our new MOTUC styled Batman and Superman figures?

    * Any more MOTUC styled DC Superheroes planned for the future, aside from those revealed at this show?

    * Why is Mattel packaging an army builder with Roton and not seperately or in a 2-pack?

    * Collectors were previously promised a new Filmation Hordak figure. Is Mattel still planning to offer this new figure to us, and if so, how soon?

    * How many figures will be stuck with the new ankle design before Mattel starts using the old one again in the Club Grayskull (Filmation) line of figures?

    * Did Mattel take the results from He-Man.org's new accessories poll into consideration when making plans for future MOTU figures?

    * Will the Filmation Skeletor's hood be purple on the inside as it's displayed at the show, or will it be black on the inside like in the cartoon?

    Does Mattel have the rights to make characters from the Brazilian Masters of the Universe comics such as Shezar and Gorgone?

    Any news about acquiring the 1987 movie rights in time for next year's 30th anniversary? Karg is the #1 most wanted character (with several movie variants also reaching high on the list).

    * Will the Dark Knight Returns (aka MOTUC style) Superman and Batman be available to buy other than at Walmart? Many fans, particularly international fans, would like to have an opportunity to own these figures. Would Mattel consider releasing Superman and Batman as a two-pack on mattycollector.com?

    * With limited slots in the Collector's Choice line, is it likely that fans will see any more variants in the MOTUC (as opposed to Filmation) style? In particular, all of the vintage He-Man, Skeletor and Hordak variants have been released in MOTUC, but there are a number of vintage She-Ra and Catra variants which have not been released. Is it possible for these to be offered outside of the Collector's Choice line, for example, in a two-pack?

    Oh god, I hope never. They just need to shave about a milimeter off the new ones and they'll be perfect.

    Because we can't wait another minute to have our Filmation figures falling over again just like the old days!

    Why do you continuously fail to accurately translate Four Horsemen designs into production?

    The Skeletor has his skull pushed up too high into his hood causing that weird gap at the bottom. This wasn't in the prototype. It was more central and caused a natural shadow that would avoid the need to paint the interior black. They can't help themselves. There's always something that makes them look off.

    1.What is the deal with the rocker ankles? Why are they all siting 3mm above their proper nesting point, and what, if anything, will be done about it? I would like to know if I should cancel any current subscriptions.

    2. Also, there was talk of improving ankle articulation for Thundercats, what will this be, and why wasn't it used for Club Grayskull or the CC figures that now have terrible exposed ankle rockers?

    3. On the Seprentine King Hsss, are all the arms articulated(and how)? The head and neck? Does it connect to the vintage Hsss legs as well as the 200x(battleground) Hsss Legs?

    1)We have an idea of the best case scenario for Thundercats, but if something doesn't work out for the best , will we at least get the rest of Thundercats team?


    2)how many figures would be planned in a full year sub for Thundercats?


    3) Lodar, when are we going to see him.

    General Sunder really comes with the trooper heads, not the new trooper release? So if you want troopers with new heads, you have to buy a lot of Sunders?

    Is Sunder's cape removable, and is Trap Jaw's robot arm removable, to make them both more interchangeable with pre-existing figures?

    Was the Horde Trooper on display just to show the figure we can use the extra heads with, or are we in fact getting a single-carded release? There have been a lot of rumors and hints, but no definite information.

    It's there a general timeframe you can give us (which quarter, maybe?) for the release of the Roton w/ Skelcon? With some of us already in for some Powercon exclusives and anticipating SDCC exclusives, it would be helpful to have at least a rough idea of when we should plan to expect needing to have the money on hand for this.

    Who comes with the Sword Skeletor has been shown multiple times with?
    Where's Snake Mountain?
    Where's Crita?
    What is the gap in communication between the four horseman and design?
    Why isnt the website used more frequently to address issues or announcements and other sites like the org are?
    What caused such a mess of problems after last years SDCC?
    If King Hiss was delayed to remove the China stamp, fix the card placement etc, why was he shown exactly like he looked before?
    Where's the Hordak head we were promised?
    How is Anti Eternia He-Man being offered?
    Can we get a flight stand with Roton or at least a hole in it this time seeing as you "Forgot" Point Dreads?

    Yay for buying 5+ Sunder figures.....

    I agree, if there is a single carded Horde Trooper coming, the heads should be packed in with him!
