    MOTUC Q&A's From Around the Net (5/15/2012)


    Hordak.de

    1. So, Man-At-Arms is now permanently transformed into a Snake Man, loyal to King Hissss, so they could use his knowledge to build machines and vehicles. But, wouldn't that also mean they know about Adam's secret?

    It certainly is a possibility. This storyline told in "toy form" is what would have happened in the 200X series had it continues with SMAA becoming a new major villain!

    2. Do you plan on letting the 30th anniversary figures appear in future bios again or will they rather be one shots with appearences in the current mini-comics?

    If there is a reason for them to, they are all now full-fledged MOTU characters!

    3. Some fans have been very loud about an updated version of the 2008 He-Man figure that could hold his sword aloft and with a more vintage accurate face/ maybe filmation head. As this figure wouldn't need much new tooling how are the chances for a He-Man 2.0 like you did with Bubble Power She-Ra? This alterations could also be made with Flying Fists or NA He-Man!

    It is certainly something we could look into, but it wouldn't happen until we are (at min) sold out of stock of the current He-Man 1.0, so don't look for this for at least a few more years at the earliest since we produced a lot of He-Men for the 30th. We know there are some rumors of this for 2012, but we can confirm these are only rumors and were never announce by Mattel or planned for 2012. She-Ra 2.0 was needed to interact (sit on) Swiftwind, so there was a more compelling reason to revisit her. For now, 1.0 of He-Man will still be the standard for a few years at the least.


    4. What are the chances of getting a set of two naked Vykron figures so we can display all three outfits without spending $90 for them? ;-)

    None. We will not be doing this.

    5. Can you give us only one little hint for the next Weapons Pak to keep us guessing, like: An accessory that was green before is now silver?

    There is an accessory that is now blue.
    MOTULA.foroactivo.net

    Is there any other product planned to be released out of 2012 sub besides WeaponsPack3 and Granamyr? Maybe some other diorama such as the WeaponsRack? (Zodac is tired of being standing , what about his chair?)

    You will just need to wait and see!

    Is "Son of Heman" going to be part of MOTUC canon? I'll take "keep reading the bios" as a yes.

    We would love to get to this realm of the lore in time. But no plans to announce right now.

    In neither of Evil-lyn's bios there is reference of her skin color. Will you explain this at some point? Or will it just stay as another variant pretty much like the blue Mer-Man of the mini comics?

    Yes. This will be explained soon.

    Regarding the Gar race: Are they originally from Eternia or from Infinita? Do they still inhabit Eternia while Randor is king?

    Keep reading the bios!

    draegon-man wings are awesome. Do you think this stunning piece will be used for other characters in the future?

    Yes. They will be on Granamyr.
    Mintconditioncustom.com

    Victor asks: How about if the MOTUC line include a series of pink variants (and other figures), and proceeds could be donated to Breast Cancer Research? Such variants could include Filmation colors Prince Adam, pink minicomics Sorceress and Teela, and pink SwiftWind.

    A very cool idea but nothing like this is planned right now.
    preternia.com

    Is there a reason Vykron’s space-man form does not have a black visor like the original prototype did?

    Yes, A clear visor would have required an additional tool just for that piece (due to the clear plastic) and we could not afford more tooling and keep this at the 30.00 price point.

    Will there be any Matty MOTUC reveals at Wizard World Philadelphia like there have been in the past?

    No, we will not be at this show this year.

    The first mini comic is great, especially seeing He-Man riding a dinosaur. There is a serious lack of dinosaurs in the MOTUC line, how do you hope to fix this problem?

    By hopefully one day adding in more dinos! No plans yet but stay tuned!

    Now that we have so many bio’s under our belts, are there any plans to possibly release a book collecting all the bio’s from start to finish (or volumes since obviously the bios/line aren’t done yet)?

    That would be very cool. No plans right now but maybe one day.

    I keep hearing rumors that the Four Horsemen will be taking a step back with MOTUC or that there are figures coming out that they did not do, is this true or just paranoid fan speculation?

    This is not true.
    Infinite Holloywood

    1. Most fans knew nothing about Vykron prior to his announcement. Obviously some of this stuff has come out in some of the recent books and projects about MOTU, but are there still "unknown" secret characters in MOTU that could find their way into the MOTUC line?

    You never know what the future will bring!

    2. Vykron looks at though he's going to be a figure that a good portion of fans will want three of. Is Mattel planning to up their number of SDCC exclusives so that there will be ample supply of him? Obviously you can't tell us specific numbers, but is the fact that this guy is someone collectors may want doubles of being factored in at all?

    We will be doing slightly more Vyrkon's compared to previous SDCC items but fewer compared to subscription monthly figures.


    3. The skin tone for the recent Thunder Punch He-Man seems drastically different than some of the previous incarnations of the figure. Was there a change in the chemicals used in his plastic, or was there a specific reason for the different skin tone?

    This was a deliberate change by the Horsemen and design to make him different from previous releases.

    4. Has Mattel considered running some sort of promotion with certain collector websites to create an exclusive color way of a figure? Say He-Man.org gets a red faced Skeletor and another site gets a orange faced Skeletor, etc. Similar to the way the Four Horsemen did special versions of their '7th Kingdom' figures. With the website buying a certain quantity of the figure and then being responsible for selling it themselves.

    No. MOTUC will remain exclusive to Mattycollector.com.
    Kastor's Korner

    The SDCC Vykron looks awesome! Since this figure is clearly made to invite at least three purchases by each MOTU collector, will his production run be larger than past exclusives to accommodate the likelihood of multi-figure purchases?

    We will produce more compared to other past SDCC items, but less compared to a monthly figure.

    In the SDCC news release, you said the Vykron sold on mattycollector.com will be packed out as either the space warrior or the tank warrior. Will the one we receive be randomly selected or will the two package variants be sold as separate items? MOC collectors would surely like the opportunity to purchase both.

    You can choose which one to buy. Both Space and Military pack outs will be offered as separate toys on Mattycollector.com after the show.
    MOTUClassics.Com

    MOTUClassics.Com Asks: As a MOTU fan, I’m super jealous of the functionality of the stackable stands made for the wrestling figures. Will future MOTUC stands continue to keep with the basic form of the previous two offerings or is the MOTUC team willing to look to the wrestling stands as inspiration to mix in some functionality with the design for some MOTUC Battle Stands 2.0?

    We are actively looking into stackable stands maybe as early as 2014.

    MOTUClassics.Com Asks: Some collectors that enjoy Vykron are planning to buy multiples and display him as three different characters. As a collector yourself, do you feel that same compulsion? If you do, which one would still be Vykron and what would you name the other two?

    Toy Guru: I really never thought of them as separate characters and the bio does an awesome job of explaining all of the different outfits. It really is much more like He-Man. He is still He-Man whether he is in Snake Armor, Thunder Punch or New Adventures.
    Elkkthunder's Toyroom

    Can you provide the exact date for day of sales of SDCC items- we need to plan for the day off!!
    We do not have this locked in yet.

    As soon as we do we will announce it.

    Can you look into why Digital River sends out multiple emails monthly that state "your subscription is renewing" in great excess of the # of subs one has?

    We certainly will!

    The SDCC Vykron, what is the origin of the exact name. We know Vikor, but from the Power & Honor catalog, the proto design was reference as Vykon.

    We wanted to differentiate the name from "Vikor" a bit more while still paying homage to the prototype.

    Or Zodac's gun for Stinkor?!? Or Lyn's cape?!?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    So the reason that Vykron does not have the black visor on his helmet is because clear plastic would require a new tool? No one asked about clear plastic piece.

    This is not true.

    I'm toying with the idea of making a black visor for my Vykron’s space-man helmet by cutting a piece of old camera film or tape from a VHS tape and sticking it on the inside of the helmet.

    If the Granamyr figure's wing-to-body ratio is the same as the cartoon, then it seems like he's going to be absolutely enormous now that we know what size his wings are going to be.

    How would those wings even work with Granamyr?

    Anyway, nothing at all interesting right now.

    BTW, are we going to have to wait until SDCC to find out what the 5th 30th figure is?
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    So I need to update my credit card, but Mattel's answer to that guy's question was pretty much left ambiguous. If I change it now, do I risk not getting the rest of my May figures?

    Oh, and this seems to be a big cop out answer:

    Q: Will Club Lion continue in 2013?

    A: It is too early for us to comment on 2013 at this point for any brand.


    So they keep talking about a 2013 DC sub possibility, but when it comes to Voltron, they pretty much just avoid the question.

    What was Mattel's purpose in licensing Voltron when they aren't even going to utilize the license? They should have let someone who cared get the license.

    See, now answers like these really confuse me.

    It is a line that depends solely on word of mouth, social media and collecting forums to get info out and promote the line. The idea behind these questions is to get the customer (who they want to sign up for $550.00 a year) juiced up and wanting to get their hands on future stuff. These answers are garbage. They say they have the line planned out for another 4 or 5 years, so what is the harm in letting us know 5 or 6 months in advance what product is coming out. Why all the secrecy?
