Kastor's Korner: There are amazing designs of unreleased figures coming up on the Power and Honor catalog, notably Dylamug, Horde Spider Woman, and the Horde Mummy. What are the prospects of them making it into the MOTUC collection? (And before you ask, yes, there is fan interest :-) )

Matty: (Toy Guru jumping in on this one "Hey guys. Yeah, I'm well aware of these designs. The issue is unlike Demo Man, Vikor and Red Beast, we don't physically have these sketches in our possession and there is no way to prove whether they were done by Mattel employees while under employment of Mattel. This makes it bit harder legally and logistically to make figures from these concepts.
Maybe one day if the stars align."
Kastor's Korner: As it was explained to fans at SDCC, Tallstar didn't have a waist extension piece due to the plastics used on the connector pieces needing to be one part ABS and the other PVC, otherwise an immobile hip
articulation situation would occur like King Hssss. While I am grateful Tallstar remained with functioning hips, this attachment has been done without issue on other toylines in the past. Looking ahead to characters
like Extendar who will need this feature, too, can you rework this particular mechanism so it can be resolved by the time King Hssss v2, Extendar, or Tallstar V2 is released?
Matty: It is certainly something we will take into consideration when and if we get to more figures with changing waists. Great suggestion.
Kastor's Korner: There have been little to no news on new/updated MOTUC figure stands and Matty flight stands. The flying stands have long been sold out and fans are awaiting new Grayskull stands that can clip at the waist to compensate for the worn ankles. Any news you can share on that front?
Matty: We will have new stands to reveal at Power Con that will be on sale in mid 2012!
