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

    This past round of questions were selected by Skeledor.
    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. No-ah: Once MOTU Classics is over at the end of this year and if the line is re-branded, will it be possible to include new versions of characters which were considered sub exclusives in years past? For example, a new and improved version of Shadow Weaver. Or are those characters off the table unless they are released for a new line in a different style and/or scale?

    2. SonOfHeMan: I have noticed that the ankle tilt articulation (side to side, not front to back) has been noticeably cut back or even eliminated on recent figures. For example, compare Spirit of Grayskull to Snake Armor He-Man. Would it be possible to see it return on future figures?

    3. RocketPunch: Will Perfuma be scented like her vintage figure, much like Moss Man & Stinkor?

    4. Count Judas: For the 2016 Club Eternia subscription, would you consider offering an "all-in" premium sub option? Meaning, that those that choose this option are guaranteed to receive every figure, including any out of sub vehicles or sets, the chase figure, travelling figure, SDCC exclusive, holiday items, etc.

    5. He-Dad: Will Queen Grayskull's (Veena's) wings be designed in such away as to allow her to sit on the throne in Castle Grayskull?

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

    So ask those questions!

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

    The Snake Men were always my favorite bad guys growing up! Is there any chance of releasing a commemorative snake men pack of either the original 1980's versions or the Classics together? I think this year marks 20th anniversary of the snake men's release and would be awesome to see them together! Thanks!

    With Point Dread (and presumably, Talon Fighter) on the horizon, do fans have any hope for an evil vehicle or playset to be released? The good guys have Grayskull, Battle Ram, Wind Raider, and now PD & TF. We need balance and the Evil Warriors could use a Land Shark, Roton, or Spydor on their side, now more than ever

    Can fans hope for more 200X retooled releases of older figures like what was done for Battle Armor King Hiss (i.e. a true 200X Evil Lynn, 200X Skeletor, 200X King Randor, etc)? Or is Mattel only interested in tooling unreleased characters from that era/roster? If there are no plans for the 200X line after the upcoming six figure sub, would Mattel continue to give us 200X alternate head packs at the very least?

    Thanks

    With both rebranding and new packaging being discussed for 2016, have those parties now in charge of the MOTU lines given serious thought to how many subscriptions from MOC collectors you're likely to loose with a 2016 rebranding/repackaging, and weighed that number against the number of online customers you can reasonably expect to gain due to that type of a refresh? It seems to me that for a line like this you stand to loose more subscriptions than you're likely to gain if you continue the line but repackage it as "something new". This isn't retail.

    Now that Classics slowly comes to its end,
    is there any possibility for a few variants on which Mattel have opened
    windows to before ?
    For instance, Horde Prime's bonus head coming aside of the whole
    Filmation styled figure?
    thank you.

    We have been told in the past that once an item reaches a certain point in production, there is no changing it or cancelling it. With that said, many had hoped we would see at least some of the Mini's from Wave 2 planned. Though the subscription did not meet the minimum requirements to go through, is there a possibility of some of these products still be released in some form, whether it be a DOS item or a con exclusive item?

    Can you confirm how many female characters we can expect in 2016? There are rumours of only one or two in the whole 12 months. 2014 had four - a mere quarter of the monthly slots - which felt like a good 'minimum standard'.

    Have you thought about splitting the 12 monthly figure slots in 2016, into 2 separate 6 figure mini subs? Something like Filmation/New Adventures and the other sub concentrating on the various comics and mini comics characters? Each could run alternate months and those who want everything would subscribe to both or those who want characters from one or the other can choose. I only want Filmation and New Adventures characters in 2016 and would avoid a 12 month subscription if half the figures were anything but Filmation and New Adventures.
    My top 10 items I'd like for 2016: 10/Stridor, 9/Granita, 8/Filmation Tung Lashor, 7/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 6/Frosta, Hordak, Mer-Man, Leech & Tri-Klops Filmation heads, 5/Filmation Teela, 4/Hunga the Harpy, 3/Filmation Evil Lyn 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    Re: MOTU Giants... In the last mattycollector video, it was stated that the man at arms and zodak were the last in the line of giants, but when these figures were originally pitched at SDCC, they said they would do the original 8-back in this format if the Giants were produced.

    With only being two figures away from completion, will we be getting mer-man and teela?

    The recent Snake Armor He-Man & Battle Armor King Hssss two-pack is really amazing, but noticeably absent is Snake Armor He-Man's shield. Is it possible that this could be include with another figure as we've seen done with other bonus accessories in the past?

    Now that we have the Wind Raider & Battle Ram in MOTUC's and point dread has been teased would Mattel consider doing the Roton & Attack track with tops that open and close the way they were designed just like the Model Kits?
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    If and when we get to Lord Masque is it possible for him to come with a Darkling like his boss Shokoti?

    POP characters like Hunga the Harpy, Vultak, General Sunder and Granita are popular POP characters that are still missing and fan demanded. Will POP be represented in a 2016 line?

    Does Mattel view the possible re-branding of the line, should a 2016 line happen, as an opportunity to re-release Club Exclusive figures like Shadow Weaver, or will those remain exclusives as originally stated as the intention?

    Can You Give Us A Little Hint On $60.00 Item That We Are Going To Get By The End Of This Year ? Just A Tiny Hint So That We Can Keep Buzzing About It Till SDCC !

However, there is very little chance for your Kayo, or Kitrina or Vultak or any of your desired characters if you fail to support the 2.0's & variants in 2016.... or in the future !

    Would it be possible to get new weapons for Megator, and especially Tytus packed in with Too Tall Hoove if and when he comes out? Tytus badly needs a hammer but maybe a few giant size weapons could be included to mix in with the characters. Thank you!

    The vintage toy he man head released with oo-larr turned out great. For those of us who would love to have several so we could have multiples for our basic he man, battle armor he man, faker, thunder punch he man and prince adam Would you release this new MOTUC vintage toy he man head in a multipack with two or three of just a straight rerelease as well as this head in the vintage toy faker head deco and one cast in a paler skin tone to match thunder punch he man skin tone?

    Congratulations on some awesome looking figures for Club 200x. Did Mattel consider that figures of Ceratus and King Chooblah could have presented an opportunity for fans to build small armies of generic Caligar and Kulatak warriors with perhaps the addition of an additional 'generic' head and/or alternate armor, thus encouraging additional sales for these items and is there a reason this wasn't done?
