    WTFWTK 2.150 - 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. So check to see if your question has been asked and help everyone out!
    • 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.

    A random fan will be selected to pick 5 questions to submit to Mattel. Please do not take offense to your question not being submitted.
    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.

    Click here for a master list of all previous Q&A sessions.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by Niki.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!!!

    1. Jean: If everything goes well for both subscriptions, is there a chance of a third 2016 mini-sub being announced at the next ToyFair?

    2. Bender Rodríguez: Any word on making both the Snake Men and Horde Trooper 2-packs evergreen items on MattyCollector?

    3. bigsexy_j: If no further info can be given at this point about how we are getting the 200x King Hssss snake form, can we at least get confirmation that it is coming in 2015 as part of the sub?

    4. Scorpia: Could you give Vultak the Icer forearms so his gauntlets are furry? That way he'll be more accurate to his appearance in the cartoon as opposed to the gauntlets his prototype currently features.

    5. MegaGearMax: Does a Filmation-accurate figure candidate have to have a prior figure release in Classics? I ask because every character revealed thus far for the 2016 line has an alternate counterpart in Classics. Or is this merely a coincidence?

    Dragstor's torso and armour are wrongly coloured black in the SDCC reveal.

    It looks awkward (especially the torso not matching the limbs but it makes the wheel look more like a part of the armour too) and is just is just not faithful to the original vintage figure upon which it is based.
    I'm a huge fan of the original figure and found that pretty confusing and not a welcome decision (if it was actually a decision and not just a mistake).

    Will this be corrected to match the original figure and how come it ended up black anyway?

    It seems like an odd choice.

    Why were we NOT given Early Access for the SDCC after-party sale like we were all told we would be. It IS one of the perks of the subscription, after all.

    At SDCC January 2016's Collectors Choice sub Figure Lord Masque was shown but in the wrong colors. What are the Chances The New Matty Team can have his colors Corrected to his Filmation look before he goes into Production?
    Looking forward to a very bright 2016 with MOTUC Collectors Choice, He-Man and the Masters Of the Universe animated Filmation line, Thundercats & SNAKE MOUNTAIN

    All the Filmation figures have the wrist articulation. Why this kind or articulation is not also implemented in all the upcoming MOTUC figures?

    Has there been any thought on creative solutions to get out more horses? It seems that beasts such as Crystal Sun Dancer & Moonbeam, Storm, and the 3 Swift Wind variants, would all be relatively cheap to release. There are definitely fans who want these toys, but perhaps not enough to warrant adding them to a subscription. Are there possibilities for products such as this, which have lower production costs but are also lower in demand, to eventually find their way into the collections of those who want them?

    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard, Darius, the rest of New Adventures.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    Will the Rotar and Twistoid SDCC set be offered again this year? And if so, will subscribers be offered a chance to buy them in Early Access?

    In the early days of MOTUC and in all minisubs apart from Club Etheria, female characters are heavily outnumbered by males (Club Filmation - 1, Club 200X - 1, Collectors Choice - 2). Given the high demand for ladies like Hunga the Harpy, Hawke, Kittrina and Granita and considering Club Eternia had 5 in 2015, what's the likelihood of more than two women appearing in a potential 2017 Collectors Choice sub?
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Dylamug - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets - King Ahgo - Filmation Grizzlor, Mantenna, Leech, Modulok and Multi-Bot

    Would you consider swapping out Dare for this King Hiss 3.0 figure? That way all customer expectations are met, and Mattel doesn't have to loose any money. This would also be a TRUE TEST of Dare's popularity because nobody is "forced" to buy him. Additionally everyone who wants King Hiss Torso (sub or not) can get it as I'm sure you'll make plenty for DOS. It's a Two birds one stone solution that pleases the broadest possible spectrum of your customers.

    As a German MotU fan since 1985 I was very pleased to see the black-red Anti He-Man from the German audio play "Anti-Eternia" as a MotUC figure at SDCC 2015 - thank you for this gesture to the German fanbase! Can you confirm the rumor that he will be the chase figure 2016 or will he be released otherwise?

    Are there more beasts coming, such as Clawdeen, Mantisaur, Sagitar, or Sleetah?

    Recently, Toyguru confirmed in a post that the 200x King Hsss torso was absolutely costed to fit into the 2015 sub before he left. What changes did you make that didn't allow the torso to be costed into the sub?

    Hiya. Would you guys do me a solid and release the three main Twiggets from the She-Ra cartoon as a 3-pack? They were in almost every episode. If you make them, I'll totally buy you ice cream sandwiches at Power-Con next year. Thanks!

    I have to respond to the complete and total lack of mini-comic figures! Toyguru said long ago that the last half of the last year would be the time to expect mini-comic characters, and we've seen none. Where are Haramesh, Lodar, and Kex Queen!? Wouldn't mind seeing Stratos' wife Delora, or White skin Man-E either.

    Is there any possibility at all of having previous figures re-issued, or are 2.0s the only option?

    There has been announcement of both figures (Laser Light figures) and playset (Snake Mountain) that has electronics. In the past Matty Collector has not shipped these over the seas. Is something about to change, or are these items only for the American consumers?

    I was over the moon with the announcement that you were going all in and we will be getting for the first time ever a true Filmation line of action figures that are faithful to the beloved cartoon. My question is can we hope to see more filmation figures than the seven announced Filmation sub figures in 2016?

    With a little "technical" decrease of the number of figures offered over a year, will it be possible to increase the number of vehicles produced over a year (maybe 2 or 3 instead of 1) ? It will make the line goes complete as the vintage one was full of vehicle .

    In the past, when stock of a particular figure was added back to Mattycollector, it was often sold at the present figure price point instead of the original price point. Given that the announced price of figures for 2016 is lower, will we see reductions in price of any older customer service stock sold on Mattycollector?

    Given the fact he would be a 100% new tool, is it possible we might eventually get a figure of Dylamug? and if so would he be in a semi-annual oversized slot?
    My top 10 characters: 10/Filmation Ram Man, 9/Uncle Montork & Dree-Elle, 8/Kothos, 7/Filmation Mer-Man, 6/Granita, 5/Filmation Leech, 4/Filmation Tung Lashor, 3/Twiggets (Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina), 2/Hunga the Harpy, 1/Dylamug.

    Will Mattel be attending any other conventions or Cons before NYTF or would that be the first chance of seeing the other reveals like Tuskador, Horde a Wraith, and Filmation Evil-Lynn and Clawful.

    Although we technically have all of the humanoid vintage MOTU figures in Classics form as of the end of 2015, what is the status of the Meteorbs in Classics? They are also part of the vintage He-Man line, and even if we can't have them all, have at least one or two of them been seriously considered for a release in Classics in the near future?
