    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 TheShadow.
    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. Niki: Do you consider Jetlag characters as main New Adventures characters as well or do you only consider NA toy line characters as main NA characters?

    2. T-man: Which MYP/200x characters are considered A-List? Characters like Evilseed, Prahvus, Horde Wraith, King Hsss, Snake Armor He-man, Sorceress, Ceratus? Would a B-List for Mattel be Tuvar, Baddhra, Odephius? I am trying to gauge what is considered A-List, B-List, etc.

    3. King Tamusk: Hypothetically, it's been mentioned that a 2016 subscription could include 2.0 versions of characters. However, wouldn't 2.0 figures be best if sold as a non-sub item and leave the subscriptions to new characters (aside from variant quarterly slots)? Not every subscriber will want a 2.0 figure taking up a valuable and limited spot that a new character could have had. As a non-sub item, people can decide if they prefer the 2.0 version over the one previously offered and buy it if they want to, without feeling forced into purchasing it as part of the subscription. What are your thoughts on this?

    4. Snake Hunter: Is there a chance that the 2016 subscription slots can be decided by an official poll that only 2015 subscription customers can access? This way customers will get the characters they really want to buy.

    5. Barezz: Since we know Mara will be coming in 2015, I was wondering if you have decided if she will be designed after the unmade vintage toy prototype, or the outfit that she wore in the latter part of the Jetlag cartoon? Or maybe a combination of both?

    With Skeletor pulling forces from across space to help bolster his forces for the2nd Ultimate Battleground did he pull Fangman from the past so be could call upon a flight of Dragosaurs?

    The vintage Masters Of The Universe, Princess Of Power and New Adventures toylines are well known for the action features, with many of the original characters being defined by their unique gimmicks.

    Can you give us some idea of what action features these newly created characters may have had, as if they had existed back in the 80s/90s:

    Lady Slither
    Hans Hammer Holder
    Red Shadow
    Fang-Or
    Goldenrod
    Robowoman
    Snarrrlll The Snow Thief
    Gladiator
    Beast Lord
    Bandwidth
    The Great Black Wizard
    Skeleteen
    He-Ro II (Dare)
    Vypor
    Strettch Nek
    Tufos
    Despera
    Standar
    Unnamed One

    Will there ever be a way to bundle EA purchases along with Sub shipments? I think a lot of people would be more apt to buy EA figures if we weren't paying a second shipping costs!

    Why is Battle Lion described as "a mighty beast from the Green Tiger tribe" when he is a lion, not a tiger?

    A question for Scott: I have made the decoration that if Satma makes the line that I will mow your lawn for life. With that being said; where do you want me to dump your grass clippings?
    Satma needs to happen. I will mow your lawn for life, Scott.

    While we respect the effort Mattel has gone to integrating NA into the MOTU world, the NA look just doesn't gel with some fans. Would Mattel consider offering a limited run (say, of 1000) of the 'He-Man vs Skeletor: Their Final Battle' mini-comic, targeted at vintage fans, with the NA elements re-drawn to insert vintage designs (for example original MOTU He-Man instead of NA He-Man, Clamp Champ instead of Icarius, vintage Power Swords instead of NA swords, Laser Power Skeletor instead of NA Skeletor and normal dialogue boxes instead of NA design boxes)? These could be offered for sale at conventions or Early Access.

    Way back when... there was an immediate fix thrown in with the flocked ears of Moss Man. While some figures were already done, most other figures were able to be fixed right away.

    In a past Q&A you'd stated that the soonest we would see the "Bulky Armor" fixed was around "Q4 2014 at the earliest."
    Is there any possible way to implement a faster fix to the "Bulky Armor" problem, in order to see the results sooner than Q4 2014 at the earliest?

    I just saw the packaged reveals for NA Skeletor, Flogg, and Extendar. I personally will not bother buying any more of the "Bloated" looking MOTUC figures. I don't think that anyone wants to have nearly 1 whole year worth of figures looking like this.

    Is it possible to fast-track this fix, in order to see the results sooner?
