    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.

    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.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by MrBlitzer.
    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. bamf1980: How about a preorder system for playsets and vehicles like you're doing with the BTTF Hoverboard?

    2. MrBlitzer: In 200x, Tuvar and Baddhra merged together to form Two Bad. Are those characters on the table for release in MOTUC?

    3. WDWFreak53: Was part of the reason for the removal of certain accessories (Draego-Man's weapons, Horde Prime's staff, Spector's whip, etc.) due to subscription prices remaining at the 2008 prices because the subs went on sale prior to the price increase? Meaning, if the sub prices had been increased, would we be seeing these accessories?

    4. slackrguy: Why does MOTUC shipped via USPS start out by going from California to Nevada, then back to California, and then back to Nevada?

    5. DamnSmooth: My question is would Matty ever consider doing flat monthly payment instead of a per-item basis. For example: $510 (total fixed cost of the 2012 MOTUC subscription) / 12 (months in the year) = 42.5 equal monthly payments, regardless of figures shipped, + the shipping. It would make it so customers had a fixed amount each month for their budgets, leaving shipping costs as the only variable.

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

    So ask those questions!

    In the 200X/MYP series we saw various weapons mounted on Zodak's wall. Will we ever see these weapons (more specifically the mace used in Rise of the Snakemen) in toy form and/or perhaps a cartoon accurate version of the staff from the 200X series? Maybe in the form of another weapons rack?

    Will Spikor's Trident be interchangeable with the Trap Jaw/Roboto/Hurricane Hordak weapons?

    With the recent break out movement "No Rio, We Riot !", does Mattel have future plans to give into the demands of an ever growing fan juggernaut?

    The bios make subtle references to a long line of Castle Grayskull's guardians. Can we expect to see some of these past guardians, just as we've seen He-men of the past?

    Would an Orko/Faker/Scareglow Man-E-Faces head insert repaint be possible in a future weapons/accessories pack?

    Now that SDCC is sold out can you tell us what day the costume contest will be held on?

    Many International customers are still waiting on their December Mattycollector orders. After some research, it seems like only those who ordered the Wind Raider with their December orders are the ones who are still waiting, and it seems to be pretty much universal. Can you comment on this issue and what might be done to fix it?

    Since there are no current plans for an Oo-lar figure at this time, when you do get to him would you consider releasing him in a two-pack with a re-engineered Green Goddess? The Goddess can utilize the 2.0 female body, the 1.0 hips and legs, BG Evil Lyn's bracelets, a remolded tunic, and a remolded head and headdress with her hair flowing out the back. Oo-lar would be a new head, bare forearms, beltless loincloth, bare calves and feet. This way, the new Green Goddess doesn't take up a single figure slot from a new character which has been one of the reasons why you guys haven't gotten around to re-doing her. They are essentially variants of existing charaters, but you wouldn't need to release them individually taking up slots for new characters. You can utilize a two-pack slot, an oversized figure slot, or a beast slot depending on cost. Also, their pairing makes sense because of the original mini-comic.

    With all the talk again of late on the forums about kickstarting a Castle Greyskull, has anything progressed and have you done any "behind the scenes" work to give Greyskull the biggest chance of being made.

    After consecutive months of no improvements on Digital River's service , I want to know if Mattel has information readily available for DR's competitors and is there a "breaking point" in mind that would have Mattel pull the trigger and go elsewhere? OR , are we absolutely stuck with Digital River for the end all duration of MOTUC and only able to HOPE for improvements?

    (NOTE: Not much motivation to improve with no chance of losing the account)

    It seems to me that MOTU has been absent of a Latino character. In looking over old notes, had Mattel ever considered introducing a Latino character into the vintage line? Were any planned for the 200X line (perhaps a re-imagining of a character like Zodak)? Are there any plans for one in MOTUC (my pick would be re-imagining Rio Blast as one)? Being a Latino myself, I would appreciate to see one in the MOTU world!

    When does Digital River's contract with Mattel/Mattycollector expire?
    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.

    With the ridiculously quick sell out on SDCC this year, is Mattel taking into account that many fans wanted to attend, but simply couldn't get tickets?
    Please make sure that the SDCC version of the exclusive isn't extremely different from the Matty version. With the quick SDCC ticket sell-outs, it is simply unfair.

    we recently read that tony guerrero, the sculptor of the first he-man prototype,
    has passed away: is it possible to have a motuc version of his prototype, or
    at least, just the head as a bonus to come packaged with oo-lar/alcala he-man
    (if and when it'll be released)?
    that would be a nice tribute to his art.

    Is it true that Digital River pads the shipping costs to pay for storage? How can that be right?
    Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?

    For Toy Guru,

    When you talk only doing Castle Grayskull "the right way" with an all or nothing approach, are you considering doing a four sided Castle Grayskull? This would be a great opportunity to give fans the ultimate Castle Grayskull

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

    Let us never forget.
