    WTFWTK 2.67 - 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 midor.
    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. coRobaczek:
    Instead of a whole Castle Grayskull could we get a facade with a working jaw bridge?

    2. Colgat20one:
    In the MOTUC bios She-Ra joins He-Man when going to the Tri-Solar System. Will there be a New Adventures She-Ra? And if so, since Teela is the new Sorceress in MOTUC, maybe She-Ra could look more like Teela's appearance in the NA cartoon so we get the best of both worlds?

    3. Bamf1980:
    When planning your releases for Filmation characters, will you take into consideration the fact that many of the fan demanded MOTU Filmation characters had infrequent appearances, while several important members of the POP Filmation cast were previously unavailable to you and, therefore, us?

    4. Grenadaspice:
    With Mattel acquiring the Filmation license, we could potentially get Skeletor's Robot Knights / Hover Robots. Is such a figure possible, especially for an army builder pack? If so, since it's a smaller figure, do you think we could get more than two in a pack?

    5. Darkness:
    Does the recent Classic Media licensing deal also give you access to the characters from the Star/Marvel and UK comics?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Why does Mattel seem very against making Illumina into a MOTUC figure when she has as much, if not more support than other fan-requested characters that Mattel has made in MOTUC or would like to make?
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    With all these requests for characters that only appeared in one or two episodes or pages from whatever comic or book would you put those characters together in a 3 pack?

    Given the enthusiasm expressed over the announcement of new mini-comics By Dark Horse, can we expect MOTU returning to regular comics again? You have previously mentioned we are unlikely to see MOTU at retail or
    Castle Greyskull unless there was a movie or cartoon tie-in. Without one, does that mean we should not expect to see him in our local comic shop soon? Even reprints of the original mini-comics, or the long sold out MV Creations comics would be awesome.

    Why not Explore Castle Grayskull in pieces thoughout the year or years instead of making one big $300+ megalithic structure to be sold?, you already have the weapons rack out,
    why not break the castle into $20 -$50 pieces to be assembled as a serious incentive to buy subs, while still offering those pieces day off, as kind of a treasure hunt for eveyone else...to be honest it would benefit the sub holders more as getting every piece, but me as a non sub holder could still get a chance to buy those from Matty. Or even do both sell the Castle as a whole for those who can afford it on Matty, and piece it out as a "Collect all XX pieces to make the awesome Castle Grayskull" option for sub buyers, tell me seriously that wouldn't entice people to buy subs, to be honest, it may even make me a first time sub buyer.

    Now that vehicles are on the table, would you guys include 200X and NA vehicles or just MOTU and POP?
    We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!

    Draego-Man - Problem solved

    In the last Q&A someone had asked about Draego-Man and if there would be any changes to him.
    The answer, while disturbing, was: "we needed to find ways to bring him into cost."

    Here is the answer: You leave him be because of the following factors:
    Stratos - NO ACCESSORIES
    Battle Armor Skeletor - ONE Accessory (No havok staff or sword)
    Battle Armor He-Man - again, no sword, just an axe (the original ones came with more)
    Beastman
    Zodac

    Get my point? Im sure you have saved enough money on giving us figures with little to no accessories by now to make up for Draego-Man's couple extra.

    Besides...at $20 a figure, Im sure it wouldnt "break your bank" to give us one figure with a little extra.

    Com'mon. We buy everything you guys throw at us. And we like the product. It's not going to bankrupt the company to reward your customers with a couple extra accessories on this figure.

    Now that it has been acknowledged that those who purchased Battleground Teela were overcharged where shipping fees are concerned, what (if any) plans are there to rectify this situation?

    Regards,

    I am new to buying MOTUC. In fact it is the first he-man line i have collected. I got into it mainly through reissued figures. now that reissued figures is ending soon will A list characters be made priority in reissueings last days? and with reissues and DC two packs gone, is their any other plans for new fans to find jump in points with characters?

    a new detachable armor for a sy-klone 2.0?

    looking at the great work on icarius, i was wondering if
    it will be possible, further down the road, to have an updated
    version of sy-klone with a fully datachable armor:
    i know the version we have is based on the vintage toy,
    with the radar in his chest, but in classics line that thing
    makes him looking a little bit "out of place" (imho) amongst the
    other figures.
    obviously, the new armor could be used on strobo, also.

    thanks in advance

    Is there any point at which Mattel would consider cancelling a figure if all indications pointed to unexpectedly low sales of said figure? Would (or has the company) reduced production of figures that did not receive a warm welcome from He-Man fans once the figure has been revealed? Related to this, will Power-Con and any other additional events Mattel participates in be useful to the company in gauging fan interest and helping to make decisions related to the direction of the MOTUC toy line?

    Any chance that Stinkor could be changed to use Hordak's feet? I know the feet that were shown are more true to the vintage figure, but the Hordak feet look a lot like the feet the 200x staction had.

    He looks great otherwise!
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Starla's face shown to us at SDCC was beautiful.
    We bought subscriptions.

    Now, her face has been changed and quite for the worse. See pictures below.

    Please do not try to pass this off as just a small handful of your customers either.
    Take a poll and ask for yourself if your customers want the Starla face we were shown at SDCC or if we want this lesser quality looking face?
    And it is lesser quality. Take a look at it and see for yourself.
    Would you be happy with a cross eye'd face? The version we were presented originally looks beautiful and intelligent. The new...thing...just the opposite. Don't say you dont see it.

    Please dont give us a condescending patronizing answer. We would like results with this. Not: "we cant change that".
    This is completely unsatisfactory. You would be just as upset were you presented with a high quality item, "This is what you are buying!", only to be given something that looks inferior afterward. Who does that??? Is that Mattel's practice?

    So, please, on behalf of people who want stuff like this to stop occurring, what can be done to remedy this problem? (NOT going forward...but with THIS very figure)

    Does Marvel own the rights to The Mighty Spector character since it was originally submitted to them?

    Are any of the 30th Anniversary characters going to be in the 2012 mini-comics?
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    why is it that Illumina need 5,000 fans when you did not ask that for BG Teela/Mo-Larr/Won-dar and other fan demanded characters?

    the King needs his Queen and pet! Queen Veena and Battle Lion for MOTUC!

    For the Love of Illumina & her Cat Sleetah!!

    We know that Draego-Mans extra weapons and Keldors swords will becoming at some point but why not release them together in 'A Snake Mountain Hidden Weapons Chest' in the same vein as the weapons rack you could add mini story of a slow/dumb Clawful having lost the key or misplacing the chest. Whilst adding few repaints (black Hurricane Hordak weapons)?

    Somewhere in the He-Man.org Forum it was posted that all the 30th Anniversary Figures will be male characters?

    Is that a fact? How is such a statement even possible since the Create-A-Character Competition Winner isnīt even chosen yet and this character could be female?
