    WTFWTK 2.68 - 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 dorrmann.
    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. bskcase:
    Now that vehicles are on the table, would you guys include 200X and NA vehicles as well?


    2. Shecky:
    Now that it has been acknowledged that those who purchased Battleground Teela were overcharged on shipping fees, what are the plans to rectify this?


    3. AdultCollector:
    Would Mattel consider cancelling a figure if all indications pointed to unexpectedly low sales of said figure? Related to this, is feedback from conventions or other events Mattel participates in used to gauge fan interest and to make decisions related to the direction of the MOTUC toy line?


    4. slackrguy:
    Are any of the 30th Anniversary characters going to be in the 2012 mini-comics?


    5. General Hawk 7:
    Starla's face at SDCC was beautiful. We bought subscriptions. Now her face has been changed for the worse as shown at Power-Con (please see link). What will be done to remedy this problem? http://i854.photobucket.com/albums/a...facechange.jpg


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

    So ask those questions!

    Since the Griffin was shown at Powercon may have asked for the wings to be painted the correct Colors like the Griffin from the MYP cartoon Brown,black and gray. Will the Griffins wings get painted in the correct colors since the solid grey is not well liked?
    faceless ones inside hood was changed from purple to black because the fans knew it would look like the MYP cartoon and it turned out great after mattel listened. Will mattel listen to the fans about the griffins wings?

    Do you have plans for the Meteorbs in MOTUC, and are the Meteorbs included in the "MOTUC roadmap" ?

    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)?

    It has been asked if Castle Grayskull could be sold in separate parts, sort of as a collect & build type of playset, thinking this would bring the cost down, but it has been stated that it wouldn't make sense logistically & If Castle Grayskull were to be made, it would be done properly. Now, my question is where would your stance be on a future 3 Towers of Eternia playset. Being that this is considered the mother of all action figure playsets, is Eternia a playset that you think at cheaper cost, it could be sold as 3 separate mini-playsets, as they are technically 3 stand alone towers minus the connecting monorail system. And even though I would love to see the monorail system and think that parts of the track and a monorail vehicle could be packaged with each "tower mini-playset", that Eternia diorama/display at SDCC showed how awesome the towers can be without the track. What are your thoughts on the Ultimate Battleground and selling it this way?

    Could you explain what the difference is with the commercial limitation when it comes to international shipping for your Mad Matty sales and when someone orders 4-5 things in one order?

    The Alcala Skeletor head looks amazing!!!! Here is the thing tho, what if we want all our Skeletors with that head? So in that case how bout including 1 in in upcoming weapons pack (for all of us who need one for Battle-Armor Skeletor too) and start including it as an alternate head with the other variants like Dragon Blaster and such?

    Their seems to be debate over Snake-Man-at-arms and whether the proto shown at NYCC was the finished product or whether their was still some paint or bits to be added. Can you clarify???

    With all the buzz around brand new characters in the 30th Anniversary line would it be plausible to expand the MotU mythos with new characters using 2 of the quarterly variant slots? New characters could be designed by the Four Horsemen, Mattel Design Department or taken from some of the better Create-A-Character concepts (seeing as Mattel owns the rights to these)
