    MOTUC Q&A's From Around the Net (2/15/2012)


    Hordak.de

    1. Recently Mattel offered a refund for broken Goddess figures. This figure is no longer available and we were told there will be nor reissue of her. So, anyone who sends back the broken figure has no real chance of getting her again. Will you reconsider re-releasing her, maybe as an additional slot like you did with Bubble Power She-Ra and altering her, for example without the He-Man accessoiries and giving her something new?

    This is highly doubful. We were able to take another pass at She-Ra because Bubble Power was a legit variant of her (like Battle Armor He-Man). It is unfortunate Goddess had some major QC issues, but there are no plans to do a second version of her. Maybe in a movie year if MOTUC goes retail we could think about working her into the line, but it is highly doubtful she will take up a monthly slot.

    2. Mattel is not very confident on adding more vehicles into the Classics line because of the molds that cannot be reused. We are sure there can be parts that actually could be reused, though. For example Spydor has 6 of the same legs, parts of those could be reused for Monstroid. The Wind Raider could share the flightstand and wheels with Roton and we are sure the Horsemen could find ways to reuse tools. Would Mattel be more confident if there was more tool-sharing possible?

    Yes, if the vehicles could share parts the way say Panthor and Battlecat could it would be easier to do more of them. You brought up some examples but even these are very minimal in terms of shared parts.

    3. The sub-Exclusive posters so far have been maps. What if the next poster was a picture of the Grayskull facade in scale with the Classics figures? That way fans could get a cool background for their toyshelfs and a Grayskull below the 200-300 $-mark. It could be continued with Snake Mountain, Primus, Fright Zone or Crystal Castle posters... Jitsu's hand.

    It is a cool idea but for now we are sticking to the maps. The new 2013 map is being worked on right now actually!

    4. Most fans thought Demo-Man would be red and it was a big surprise he turned out green- and man- is he green! What was the decision on this? Why this neon green colour?

    His deco was chosen by the Horsemen based on the original art work.

    5. We got the weapons rack early in 2011, are there any plans for future diorama pieces?

    Not at this time.

    1- Will Toyguru's MOTU commentary continue on the forums?

    We sure hope so! That is up to him and how much spare time he has these days. It is not part of his required job, but he loves doing it when he can.

    2- After Toy Fair will there be much news before SDCC?

    Some, but most will be at major shows

    4- With the plan not to sell product unless 100% in the warehouse, by what date will be the cut off to know what will be on sale?

    Now it is 15-45 days prior to sale

    5- The QC issues have been well addressed, how about the Digital River cancellation email issues, why is that happening?

    The reason subs were "canceled" was due to sub holders not having enough funds in their account/on their cards to cover the figure. We know fans were not trying to "cancel" their sub, this was an automatic message sent out to customers without adequate funds. Going forward we changed the wording of the message to clarify for customers that their sub will be "on hold" due to a payment failure, not canceled. This was out fault for a poorly worded automatic message.
    MOTUCfigures.com

    1.) You stated that the Wind Raider sales were just "okay", despite the fact that there was no product left after 3 and a half days. When gauging the success of the Wind Raider, were the circumstances surrounding the sale factored into your assessment at all? It doesn't take a marketing expert to see that the confusion behind the Demo-Man shipping situation, and more importantly the fact that it was sold 10 days before Christmas when many fans don't have extra cash to burn HAD to be mitigating factors when it came to how quickly the item moved. Had the item been sold in October as originally planned (when the holiday crunch wasn't upon people and with Demo-Man and his problems months away), the ridiculously fast sellout you guys gauge as a "success" probably would have happened. It seems a shame that due to poor planning on your part in regards to the release date has reflected negatively on its performance, and therefore jeopardizes our chances at getting more vehicles... despite the fact that we did everything we could (i.e. buying everything you had despite those factors).

    From Toy Guru:

    "Let me try and clear the air on this one. First off, we had originally planned on the WR (and Granamyr is planned for) a Sept release. Due to circumstances we could not control the WR was delayed twice and had to wind up shipping in Dec. So it is not like we purposely planned or due to "poor planning on out part" to make this a Dec item. The other thing to take into consideration (and this is NOT an attack on customers) but we did make it very clear the cost of the WR well in advance. If this was an item you wanted to buy, you had months to save up and stash away needed funds. It is not like this high prices item came out of no where and surprises people. At the end of the day, it just took too long to sell a very small number of units."


    2.) As a followup to number 1- You do realize that if you sell all of your product in a ridiculously short amount of time (like the Battle Cat and original Tytus sellouts), then you are missing out on a large portion of willing customers, right? I for one didn't get Tytus when he was originally available due to the short sellout time... and I know I wasn't alone. That was $40 you could have had from me then, but with a goal of super-rapid sellouts to gauge success, you missed out on me as a customer. I wonder how many Wind Raider sales you would have lost out on had it not lasted the whole 3 and a half days that it was up?

    We are looking into doing a second run and selling it during a non holiday time. We'll see if this works out to help pay for the high tooling cost.

    3.) Do you plan on having figures other than Skeletor, He-Man, Battle Cat, and Panthor available on a regular basis? Teela seems to be a perfect candidate for this.

    It is possible but no one is planned beyond those 4 at this time.

    4.) It seems many of the other companies are no longer shying away from big playsets. Playmates just unveiled an enormous Sewer playset for their upcoming Turtles line, while Hasbro has a 3 foot long Hellicarrier coming in their Avengers line (as well as multiple large Star Wars vehicles currently in production or coming soon). With your 2 largest competitors showing that they aren't afraid to tackle the large items, isn't it about time Mattel stepped up to the plate and took a risk on larger items (like Castle Grayskull)?

    If the Windraider and the 2012 sub has sold better we would have started looking into a playsets, but neither one did so the idea was put on the back burner.

    5.) Have you ever thought of doing another spirit variant in the line? A spectral form of Demo-Man cast in green translucent plastic would be way cool!

    That would be awesome! But no plans at this time.

    1. What did Mattel take away from the recent Demo-Man shipping debacle? Obviously there was a lot of changes made as a result, but what would be the overall consensus on the line moving forward as a result of that?

    We changed our policy to no longer sell sub figures until they full quota is in stock. And clearly we will work on communicating changes earlier and clearer. But we wouldn't classify this 30 day shipping delay as a debacle or anything that dramatic. Delays do and will continue to happen. They should be expected from time to time. If anything we did a poor job communicating what was happening. But the delay is normal and will happen sometimes.

    2. It was mentioned that although the Wind Raider sold out, it didn't move quite fast enough to be an impressive sell through. Isn't it possible that this slower sell through, was a result of other purchases fans were making at the time? In essense, can't a sell out still be successful, even if it takes a few days (weeks even)? Everyone doesn't get paid on the 15th of the month, ya know.

    A few days to sell out would have been great if we had a normal quota. But our quota was EXTREMELY small. The fact that it took three days to sell out only a very small handful of units is why it was not a run-away success.

    Q: Recently, Toyguru confirmed that the MotU Classics are "transitioning to a much more subscription-based line going forward", resulting into collectors worrying about the line's future if even less subscriptions will be sold this summer (for 2013) than last year (for 2012). Wouldn't dwindling sub sales be a reason to rethink the idea of offering an "all-in" subscription and another one just for the 12 monthly figures?

    A: No, we need to bank all of the figures together to have a quota we can use for all figure (except for the few non sub items like large holiday items like Granamyr).

    Q: We also were told that the Wind Raider sold "okay" but would've needed a "slightly faster sell-through to convince management that a fully tooled vehicle is the right expansion". However, some collectors assume the 3-day availability may also have been a result of the release date and the Wind Raider might have done better in October or November. Are you going to offer Granamyr earlier this year?

    A: From Toy Guru: "Let me try and clear the air on this one. First off, we had originally planned on the WR (and Granamyr is planned for) a Sept release. Due to circumstances we could not control the WR was delayed twice and had to wind up shipping in Dec. So it is not like we purposely planned or due to "poor planning on out part" to make this a Dec item. The other thing to take into consideration (and this is NOT an attack on customers) but we did make it very clear the cost of the WR well in advance. If this was an item you wanted to buy, you had months to save up and stash away needed funds. It is not like this high prices item came out of no where and surprises people. At the end of the day, it just took too long to sell a very small number of units."

    Q: In addition to the previous questions, wouldn't a preorder-system help Mattel in case 2012 subscriptions dwindle? Not to forget the non-sub items like Granamyr or potential upcoming vehicles - if not enough collectors pre-order the item, it just won't be produced.

    A: It is one option, but we did announce the WR and the cost months in advance so customers can clearly save that amount of money in their account or even in a cookie jar and wait for it to go on sale if it is something they want to buy.

    Q: Whatever happened to Prince Adam? Is he still planned to be (re-?)released on single card (inluding his own bio)?

    A: Prince Adam was released with Orko as a two pack. There are no plans to release him as a single in 2012 but anything is possible for the future.

    Q: Since tooling for the Wind Raider was so expensive, wouldn't it be an idea to re-use most of it for a "Water Raider" (and determine the demand for that through a pre-order offer)?

    A: It is one idea, but a Water Raider is not planned at this time.
    MOTUClassics.Com

    MOTUClassics.Com: Fans are happy to finally have Demo-Man in-hand, but we’re still left knowing next to nothing about the character. You know we’ll keep reading the bios, but are there future bios in the pipeline that will shed more light on Demo-Man or the Fighting Foe Men?

    Yes, you will find out more in time!

    MOTUClassics.Com Asks: With interchangeable parts coming back into style, are Mattel and the Four Horsemen making a more concentrated effort to look for interchangeability in MOTU figures? Fisto is awesome, but his inability to part share with Roboto & Trap Jaw ended up being a drawback. Will future figures have that aspect more carefully considered so opportunities aren’t missed?

    Fisto was never intended to share parts with Roboto or Trap Jaw. We leave these choices up to the Four Horsemen.
    Kastor's Korner

    Kastor's Korner: We are aware of many cost-saving strategies that have been intorduced into MOTUC, from reducing accessories on a figure like Draego-Man to the new smaller shipping boxes… these techniques have protected the 2012 sub-holder prices, but should sub-holders expect this to be the final year of $20 figures?

    Matty: While we don't know 2013 prices yet, we can bet they will not be at 2008 levels. Prices continue to go up due to labor and raw materials rising every year. We will do all we can to keep figures cost down but we do not want to cost reduce the figure itself and remove weapons or deco ops to do this. It is always a delicate balance.

    Kastor's Korner: Masters that require less tooling have been coming fast and furious, while many who would need more unique parts seem to be more paced out to accommodate a larger production budget. Have you considered pricing the basic figures on a scale based on new tooling requirements? For example, Clamp-Champ, who only needs a head and accessory would be $20, while a new tool like Ram Man would be $25?

    Matty: No, all basic figures will be the same price regardless of how much tooling they need. All of the figures roll up under one Profit and Loss statement and the low tool figures often help pay for the higher cost figures.

    Kastor's Korner: Recently, you discussed the QC issues that have affected figures like King Hssss and Roboto, but have there been discussions as to how these QC-impacted characters will be re-introduced to the line now that the TRU sets are finished? Quarterly variants maybe?

    Matty: Now that we are no longer doing reissues we would need to use a monthly slot for a new Roboto or King Hssss. If fans would prefer a fixed or updated version of these characters over an all new character as monthly sub spot, let us know!

    If Mattel are considering a reissue on the Wind Raider which lasted 3 days then maybe there is still hope for those who missed out on Fisto....

    So not only are other vehicles on the line, but so are things like playsets (Castle Grayskull) depending on how well the WR and the subs sell. I've got a bad feeling about that.
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Entrapta, Lodar, Peekablue, Twistoid and Tung Lashor

So, anyone who sends back the broken figure has no real chance of getting her again. Will you reconsider re-releasing her, maybe as an additional slot like you did with Bubble Power She-Ra and altering her, for example without the He-Man accessoiries and giving her something new?

    This is highly doubful. We were able to take another pass at She-Ra because Bubble Power was a legit variant of her (like Battle Armor He-Man). It is unfortunate Goddess had some major QC issues, but there are no plans to do a second version of her. Maybe in a movie year if MOTUC goes retail we could think about working her into the line, but it is highly doubtful she will take up a monthly slot.

    If you still had the slightest doubt about the fact Mattel/Matty don't give a damned about their customers, here you go ! They knew these figures were defective, they sold them once, they even went so far as to sell the rest of these defective lot knowing it was flawed.

    And they won't even try to please their customers and fans with a corrected reissue ? World class, Matty... Taken for the ass again !



    We got the weapons rack early in 2011, are there any plans for future diorama pieces?

    Not at this time.

    And here comes another limitation for the MOTUC line on this "great" 30th anniversary year ! It's just revolting... I guess we can all forget about a bone throne, an Eternia (3 towers) weapons rack, Zodac's chair, Eternos throne room, etc.



    The QC issues have been well addressed, how about the Digital River cancellation email issues, why is that happening?

    The reason subs were "canceled" was due to sub holders not having enough funds in their account/on their cards to cover the figure. We know fans were not trying to "cancel" their sub, this was an automatic message sent out to customers without adequate funds. Going forward we changed the wording of the message to clarify for customers that their sub will be "on hold" due to a payment failure, not canceled. This was out fault for a poorly worded automatic message.
    And blame the fans some more, won't ya ? The truth is some fans actually had enough funds in their account, but their subs were nonetheless cancelled ! The reason is just linked to DR's ineptitude. But I guess that's too hard for the Company to admit...


    we had originally planned on the WR (and Granamyr is planned for) a Sept release.
    Please, everyone, note this : Granamyr is scheduled for September !


    The other thing to take into consideration (and this is NOT an attack on customers) but we did make it very clear the cost of the WR well in advance.
    THe other thing fans should pay attention to (and this is NOT an attack on Matty) is the fact that the WR price was raised unexpectedly, not long before it was sold. So those fans who had planned their budget were caught off guard !


    At the end of the day, it just took too long to sell a very small number of units.
    That is complete nonsense ! The Wind Raider sold out in just 3 days, right before Christmas, for Heaven's sake ! How is that "too long to sell" ? A sellout is a sellout ! You got the bloody money, didn't you ? So what's the point, here !?


    It seems many of the other companies are no longer shying away from big playsets. Playmates just unveiled an enormous Sewer playset for their upcoming Turtles line, while Hasbro has a 3 foot long Hellicarrier coming in their Avengers line (as well as multiple large Star Wars vehicles currently in production or coming soon). With your 2 largest competitors showing that they aren't afraid to tackle the large items, isn't it about time Mattel stepped up to the plate and took a risk on larger items (like Castle Grayskull)?

    If the Windraider and the 2012 sub has sold better we would have started looking into a playsets, but neither one did so the idea was put on the back burner.
    The Windraider excuse is lame and is not founded. Now as far as the 2012 subs go, I guess if Matty had paid more attention to quality control, to shipping issues, to customer service etc., more 2012 subs would have been sold without the shadow of a doubt. You only have yourselves to blame, Matty and DR guys !

    And I guess we can now consider MOTUC as being a line including only figures and beasts. Say bye-bye to playsets, vehicles and even mini-dioramas... Another "wonderful" news from this "world class" company, and right for the "great" 2012 30th anniversary celebration ! Pathetic...

    Man, answers about playsets on back burner make me fear having such a great collection as MOTUC is, which picks characters from all cannons, and not having Castle Grayskull to crown it.

    Another limitation? Additional sub this year, Granamyr, Filmation characters, mini-comics, the fan vote, Create-A-Character contest... all that on top of the regular 12 monthlies, 4 bonus, and 4 beast/multipacks. You call that revolting, just because we're not getting playsets? I think it's actually pretty darned AMAZING, especially considering there is no movie or entertainment to speak of.

    Since you want to discuss limitations, should I list some of them ? Here we go : no more 200x heads (and no, Stinkor's head is not 200x inspired, it's what he would have looked like in the 80's if his head hadn't been just a Mer-Man repaint, said Toyguru), no more vehicles before 2013, no playset, no more mini-dioramas, few unique sculpts, no more reissues for figures who were released after Man-E-Faces, Horde Prime coming without his staff, Draego-Man coming without his fire whip and without his shield... Just to name a "few".

    Blah blah blah movie year blah blah blah if the wr sold better blah blah blah if the subb sold better.

    Why do we have to hear this just make the dam toys with no excuses. No other toyline deals with the bs like we do. I mean really it's getting so freaking stale the sale dam excuses.

    Every figure dosent Ned to share parts. This line is by no means cheap to collect.

    So why not do this......not take such a huge bonus this year and stop with the excuses.........

    Ok I think this year is shaping up to be very amazing. But in reply if the fans wanted more vehicles and play sets the sub sales and the sales of the wind raider will need to increase. As will the sales of Granamyr the line is in the fans hands but if we are not buying enough stuff to pay for the tooling of the Wind Raider how will we pay for the tooling of Greyskull.

    Sad to see the same old lie of the cancellations happening because customers didn't have money in their accounts.

    Yup, and if they are not doing it for their retail lines (which potentially sell more) they will not be doing it for something like MOUTC which is at bare minimums in the grand scheme of toy production

    I do hope that they find a way to do some more pieces though, I mean they were able to do the orb holder with the White Sorceress so maybe in the future they can fit in other pieces with figures instead of weapons/heads

    Yeah, I think the playset thing is fair... though I do still hold out hope for it before the lines end. With rising costs, it'd be better to do it sooner than later.

    The MOTUC line and all its fans were taken for the ass

    Glad to see the "maybe in a movie year" and the "sub or die" posts. Warms my heart.
    Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?

    I don't necessarily like it either, but if buying more subs is what it takes to get bigger items, then buying more subs is what it takes. Sometimes the truth hurts.

    I was very excited about february sub shipping today and the amazing figures I'll be receiving soon but that WR excuse is messing up everything...it's just too lame, I mean, the figures are great and such but are we gonna keep getting same tooled figures for the rest of this line...this will be boring!

    ((Yes it's sold out but we're not satisfied!))
    What language is this? If you needed more money then you should've put more in stock so people can buy it. IT WAS SOLD OUT.

    I bought 3 WRs and I imagine others did the same and more to support the line and they keep saying it didn't perform well!!
    Now there will be no castle grayskul nor any other playset because of WR?? What logic is this? This line started four years ago and we still hear this weird logic.
