    WTFWTK 2.131 - 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.
    • Please do not attach photos. Any linked/attached photos will be removed.

    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.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by sirsniffy.
    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. Jest-or: Since the development cycle takes 18 months or more, is there already a plan on the table to unveil something new at a future SDCC Mattypalooza panel for possible 2016 MOTUC release?

    2. Haephestus: With the emphasis on completing the vintage, non-variant PoP action figures (as opposed to beasts) in 2015, is there still a chance that Storm or Clawdeen will be released in 2015, especially since they would be able to utilize existing bucks/tools?

    3. No-Ah: I wanted to ask about the possibility of seeing 2.0 versions of defective MOTUC figures. Roboto, Green Goddess, and Snout Spout in particular seem to be disintegrating just a few years after being sold. If the line continues into 2016 or even 2017, would you consider it a priority to create new versions of these three problematic figures?

    4. InspectorZartan: Presuming we get similar product in 2016, some fans are not interested in rebranding (like a "Signature" type line) and instead want the same packaging and continuation of the Classics name and story. To who do we direct our preferences about this issue?

    5. Bonehead: If there is no 2016 line, will the bios be released that were written for characters we never got?

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

    So ask those questions!

    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    If the line continues, but is repackaged in 2016; what are the chances we would get collector friendly packaging that most fans want, instead of another blister card?

    If the 2015 sub sells in great and gets greenlit and Mattel desides to continue with the MOTUC's style figures in 2016 using the same size bucks structure only on different packaging Will Lord Masque finally get made?

    It would be a real shame for Shokoti not to have her Lord Masque.
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    The Etheria map and Light Hope's bio appear to give two conflicting origins for the character. The map states that the Trollans created him as a formless being of light, while Light Hope's bio gives him a real name and says that he gave up his original form. Can you elaborate on this, and is the figure meant to represent LH before or after he became formless?

    We have seen the artwork where Lord Choloh's beard streams down a long line of steps when Choloh is sitting on his gladitorial arena throne. Does Lord Choloh's beard have magical properties to grasp foes like Entraptra's hair, or is it just a normal, albeit lengthy beard?

    The Hover Bots are going to be a great army builder but also a traveling con item. That in mind. Can we expect that Matty will produce these sets in abundance or are we going to have to deal with a situation like the Horde Troopers?

    In previous "Ask Matty" posts and in the recent Roast Gooble Dinner podcast, Toyguru stated that characters from the new mini-comics, Son of He-Man (Dare), and the DC Comics would not appear in the 2014 or 2015, expressing they are for 2016 and beyond. Yet, there is still confusion, because characters like the Unnamed One (brought into the Son of He-Man story line) and Galactic Protector She-Ra (a new mini-comic variant) have been included in 2014.

    Now, you have previously verified when a character will not be made in 2014/2015, such as Masque, Darius, Tuskador, Kayo, etc. Can you please verify if characters like Dare, Skeleteen, Despara, Robowoman, Hans Hammer Holder, etc., will not be produced in 2015? This will clarify a lot, for the customers.

    Thank you.
