    MOTUC Q&A's From Around the Net (2/1/2013)


    MOTULA.org

    Have you considered including in the Classics line, in future figure releases or in future Weapons Paks either way, the gadgets that appeared in the '87 movie, such as Evil-Lyn's "cronovisor", Blade's laser whip, interrogations necklace or the little orb that Sorceress gives to Julie?

    We sort of did that with the red whip in the first weapon pack.

    Have you identified a problem with the plastic material used in Granamyr? Similar to the frailness problem that The Goddess had.

    The number of reports and actual returns on Granamyr was incredibly low. There was some human error but we will replace any figures with incorrect assembly or breakage. The internet has a way of making a small number of errors seem much larger than the issue really is with a relatively low number of customers posting over and over very loudly. In no way do we mean to downplay that their was some QC with Granmayr, but based on the number of returns/exchanges and individual unique forum posters noting issues, the % of Granamyr’s with any QC was actually extremely low.

    I'd like to know, why Skeletor decides to go to Primus or Denebria? Did he know about the mutant's existence so he decided to search for them? Or joining them is something he improvises. His idea is to return to Eternia and fight He-Man again? Or he lost all the interest in Eternia and decides to face Horde Prime in battle.

    As revealed in Mini Comic # 3, he absorbed Hordak's essence and in doing so also had his memories. Learning of the might of the Horde Empire, Skeletor decided to leave Eternia for larger conquests. How he convinced the Mutants to joins his side is also coming together in the bios if you read carefully!

    Is there any chance for reusing Granamyr's parts for a future Tyrantisaurus Rex release?

    Anything is possible but no plans right now.

    It has been stated before that the only chance of getting a Castle Grayskull Classics, was only if a movie were made. Can we accept the castle as a HUGE yes?

    Actually, the projects are not linked. It was the success of the Hoverboard that allowed us to tackle Castle Grayskull.
    Hordak.de

    1. When you revealed NA He-Man Toy Guru told us he MAY come with his armor and helmeted second head, but that still had to be figured out. Can you give us an update on his accessories?

    We hope to have some news on the final figure at NYTF in Feb.

    2. Can you tell us when Strobo will be available?

    He will be available for regional conventions in Q2 2013. Anyone running a regional show can contact Mattycollector to arrange to purchase figures in bulk (but not at discount mind you). We will also bring Strobo outseles to Power Con and ideally NYCC in 2013. But that is not locked in yet.

    3. Giving teaser pictures to Pixel Dan before revealing Mosquitor was really great! We all know that Geldor is coming, can you imagine giving little teaser pictures to Dan again?

    It is always possible. Mosquitor was a little special since Dan was routing for him for so long!

    4. Will Skeletor re-appear or is he gone for good now?

    We do have more stock but this is the last of it! We are moving it to Digital River now to put back on sale.

    5. The son of Skeletor- did Evil-LYn get pregnant before Keldor was transformed or after he became Skeletor?

    Well we are not going to reveal that here in the letter column! Keep reading the bios and mini comics!
    Preternia.com

    Q: Are there any plans to include a helmet for NA He-Man? If not is that something that might go into the new weapons pak for 2013?

    A: We’ll let you know an update on this figure at NYTF!

    Q: You mentioned you got a sizable addition to the Castle Grayskull orders leaving it open for an additional month, could something like this be done with the sub for 2014?

    A: No, the sub has to close in early Aug to lock in quotas for the full year.

    Q: The Watchmen packaging had me thinking … ever consider doing a commemorative set with stuff like He-Man, Skeletor, etc in boxes the same style as the Watchmen stuff you are putting out, maybe casing them in Rudy Obrero art? Might be a good way to get through some evergreen stuff and give collectors another way to display those figures.

    A: It certainly would be cool but right now we are putting our limited resources into getting out as many new 6″ figures as possible vs. finding ways to repackage older ones.

    Q: Is Strobo’s gun going to be in the new weapons pak?

    A: No news to report at this time.


    Q: How do we expect He-Man to fight ALL these Snake Men you have been putting out? Is Snake Armor on the horizon?

    A: He would be a great addition to the line, but no plans to announce right now.
    Kastor’s Korner

    Kastor’s Korner: Design recently revealed using a PMS cool gray to color characters using white like She-Ra, Captain Cold, Teela, Adora, Zodac, Adam, Frosta, etc. With the obvious fan backlash, in the interest of following the Horsemen’s paint master, can the use of PMS cool gray please (and finally) be discontinued in favor of white?

    Mattel: One of the issues with white is that bright white tends to look unfinished on plastic product. When translating the Horsemen sculpts to an articulated toy, the design team often needs to make choices and one of these is to use an off white to stand in for bright white. In the end this is a design choice and made on a figure by figure basis. We will certainly pass your comments along!

    Kastor’s Korner: Since the 2014-15 MOTUC plan will focus on making the line feel complete, do certain sub-sets take priority over others? For example, is releasing the rest of the Horde considered more important than releasing the Snake Men… or finishing Princess of Power more important than rounding out New Adventures?

    Mattel: The only faction that may fall short by 2015 is finishing all of the vintage New Adventures secondary characters. Everyone else, including major animated figures will be the focus. Not guaranteed, but we will make that the focus if we get a 2014 line. And it doesn’t mean 2015 is the end of MOTUC. We can always round up MIA New Adventures figures in 2016 and beyond.

    Kastor’s Korner: Have there been discussions about flight stands for Swift Wind or the Griffin? They both only have flared “flying” wings and standing that way is a bit odd without them flying.

    Mattel: It is something we look into but nothing to announce right now.
    Elkkthunderstoyroom.com

    Do you have any overview over other licensed MOTU products, ie the Funko products?

    Yes. Mattel has approval rights over licensed product.

    What causes Ram Man to be delayed? Will sales be moved this year if all stock is not available at sale date?

    Yes, we will move sales if stock is not available in full to avoid larger issues. Ram Man is still shipping in the first quarter. He is a quarterly figure that while we thought we might sell him in Jan, it turns out Feb. worked better and is still in the first quarter of the year. So he is on time

    Is the Club subscription & Early Access pages working as hoped? Are these final or should we see more changes?

    We will constantly be making upgrades whenever we can to improve things.
    Greatrebellion.org

    DO4M asks: Since Tufos came out the left field as a surprise Avion Leader after Stratos dies, can we get some more info on him?

    Matty:Well we are not going to reveal that here in the letter column! Keep reading the bios and mini comics!

    Arthur asks: We are so thrilled about getting Castle Grayskull!!! Can you give us a little insight about the way this unexpected experiment came to be? Maybe, if you can't share details, tell us who we have to thank for this amazing opportunity (Scott, Ruben, the Horsemen, someone else...)?

    Matty: Basically after we did the presale of the Hoverboard we established a selling model to presell items without having to sculpt or design the item in full. This allowed us to lock in needed customers to justify the resources to tackle large items like the Castle.

    Jason Lee asks: We got Grayskull and Snake Mountain stands. Any chance we could see Crystal Castle and Fright Zone stands down the road?

    Matty: At this point very unlikely. We are putting all of our resources into the figures at this point.

    rock.vivien.5 asks: This is not a question but a request for improvement about the Mattycollector.com website. The login form, the "Main Help" and the "my Subscriptions" links should clearly appearing on the main page (index) of Mattycollector.com. It's never easy to get there from my Human Computer Interaction point of view :-) In order to get what info I want, I have to go on the specific page of a random product (One click) , then I have to click on Order History (two clicks), then I have to log in (three clicks), there I have ton click on "Back to Main Help Page" located far away on the bottom of the page (because I got a loooot of orders) (four clicks) and finally on "My subscription page" or "My profile" (5 clicks)... It's 5 clicks and it's a bit to much in my humble opinion. Why not add a "Login" link and redirecting to the "Main Help Page" directly on the main page of Mattycollector.com ? Thanks a lot and keep up the good job!

    Matty: We will certainly pass this along.

    Good news about the line for 2014 and 2015. I think many of us could live without New Adventures secondary characters, if the line ends. Obviously, the more the merrier, but we definitely need to see the vintage MOTU and POP lines sured up first!

    I thought that this answer was promising, too. TG says nothing is guaranteed - but we knew that with 2013 too - but it sounds hopeful. Bring on the rest of the Horde!

    I like this answer too. I love NA but I would rather see the rest of the POP, Vintage and Filmation figures released first.

    Why don't you let us decide what looks unfinished or not, instead of the team with that crap ass track record since Ruben took over?
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Ugh. I hate this as part of the bios. Hordak is not an essence to be absorbed. He's the freaking Ruthless Leader of the Horde!!! Instead, I'd like to think that after suffering defeat during the Ultimate Battleground, Skeletor realized in order to seize Grayskull he needs an armada to overpower the combined forces of the Heroic warriors and the Rebellion. Vowing to take control of the Horde, Skeletor leaves Eternia in the hopes of usurping control of the Horde to then return and take Castle Grayskull for himself.
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Entrapta, Lodar, Peekablue, Twistoid and Tung Lashor

    This is exactly my theory of what actually transpire when Skeletor realized he would need something bigger to take Eternia. I would even like to hink that Skeletor finally discovered the secret location of his Gar ancestors and realized this would be a key asset to obtain. Thus leading him to find the planet and eventually return with a wrath unmatched!

    YEAH for Princess of Powers, sounds promising.

    NOT HAPPY about New Adventures secondary characters....whoever those are? Are those characters who came in the second wave or characters who have no JETLAG origin or no real background stories?
    *Peekablue *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    I assume he's referring to guys like Kayo, Vizar, & Spinwit. I remember Spinwit had one centric episode, but I don't recall Kayo or Vizar really showing up until the end of the series. Who knows though, I'd love to have these guys as figures nonetheless .

    Wow. I can't even imagine that by the end of 2015 I could have all of the following in my collection: Glimmer, Angella, Mermista, Double Trouble, Peekablue, Castaspella, Sweet Bee, Flutterina, Spinnerella, Perfuma, Entrapta, Sea Hawk, Kowl, Lookee, Madame Razz and Broom, Mantenna, Horde Troopers, Scorpia and Vultak. That would be incredible. Absolutely incredible!

    The only characters in that list I care about are Mantenna and Horde Troopers. Maybe Glimmer and Angella, but that is it. The rest could never come out and I will not care.
    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.

    Of course, I want as much as possible. I want to finish all of the vintage MOTU and PoP figures, including the variants and beasts.

    As far as NA, I hope we see at least Hydron, Darius, Mara, Drissi, Master Sebrian, Tuskador, Artilla, Sagitar, NA Sorceress, NA Skeletor, Crita, Flogg, Crystoll, and Quakke.

    For Filmation, I hope to get Icer, Batros, Strong Arm, Evilseed, Kothos, Negator, Count Marzo, Chimera, Lizard Man, Kittrina, Delora, Scorpia, Vultak, Dylamug, Admiral Scurvy, Melog, Skokoti, Masque, Melaktha, Chef Allen, King Tamusk, King Miro, King Ahgo, General Tataran, Granita, Tung Lasher, Magestra, Seahawk, Hunga, Robot Knights, Avion Rocketeers, Queen Balina, and Garn.

    And finally, for the odds and ends I'd like Goatman, Skelcons, Crimson Fury, Prince Dakon, Lodar, Garn, Princess Rana, Masks of Power Demons, Delora, Shezar, Queen Zal, Bruar, King Hssss' Slave Girl, Wind Raider Pilot, Sharella, Kex Queen, Blue Outfit Prince Adam, Slime He-Man, Yellow Outfit Teela, Evil Robot, Eldor, and Red Beast.

    200X is much smaller, but I'd hope to see Snake Armor He-Man, Ice Armor He-Man, Prahvus, Siren, Lord Dactys, Kulatak Elder, Veena, Calix, King Miro, and Queen Andreeno.

    So, as you can see, I would be buying MOTUC for years to come.

    I chopped down your lists to show what I think we would be incredibly lucky to see. Your original list is awesome and I'm right there with ya, but I think even these lists above is highly ambitious. I devastatingly want Wind Raider Pilot and Red Beast, but the way people flipped out about the Star Sister and the Foe Men, we're never going to see this type of character again. And in a Q&A Scott said that the Foe Men would be the final 3-pack.

    Never says never in this line. You can quote me :-)

    I think now watching New Adventures, I really would love some of the folks unfamiliar with that series to give it a look. If anything, you'd argue that some NA characters should have had more unique parts (Flogg and Slush Head could have shared shin guards). I think Mara could have great pieces to share with Granita.

    Whilst I understand that NA is the least popular of the MOTU family, I will be sad if we don't see a complete NA collection by the end of Classics.

    I see having a full NA as important as the rest; I got into Classics so I'd have everything. As nondescript as Kayo or Nocturna may seem, if they don't arrive I would definitely have this little niggle that the line just isn't quite 100% finished.

    There is a bit if hope though. If the rest of the factions are complete at the close of 2015, people may become more interested in the missing characters in 2016, if only to fill the massive MOTUC sized gap that will be in their lives!

    I don't fully believe 2015 will be the end anyway, there are just too many fan demanded figures to cram into the next 3 years, especially on a smaller SKU count per year. With the success of CG, the line looks healthier than it did last summer.

    As BG Teela is to MegaGearMax
    Etc.

    Which is likely why she'll never happen . Sighhhh.

    I really think Multi-Bot, Rokkon, Stonedar, Granita, Blade, Saurod, Gwildor and the Meterobs are goners. Too much tooling/engineering on Mattel's part.
    Actually, I know you're off the mark on a couple of those

    Sweet Bee is to bcrduke
    As Mosquitor is to Pixel Dan
    As BG Teela is to MegaGearMax
    Etc.

    Which is likely why she'll never happen . Sighhhh.



    Actually, I know you're off the mark on a couple of those
    Yay, on the last part that is.

    If they do Modulok, they will have solved a lot of engineering problems that also are associated with Multi-bot. Blade could be made from existing parts, with a new head and armor. The same is probably true of Saurod as well. Rokkon and Stonedar could share much of the same mold. In fact, the only thing I see on MegaGear Max's list that has almost no chance of getting made is the Meteorbs. Even then, I could see them doing them as a non-articulated pack-in with the Rock People.

    We know that TG loves the Rock People. I bet we see one this year...

    My guess is that Brian is referring to Blade and Saurod.

    But do the Rock People have to transform? Jewelstar didn't...

    I am a MOTU child of the 80's and a MOTU/POP/NA/200x/Mini Comic/Prototype/Son of He-man/New Character "All-In" person. With that said:

    The Meteorbs should have no place in Classics. They were out of place in the 80's and they would be out of place now. They originated from a different toyline from Bandai in Japan if what I remember is accurate and unless completely re-imagined/redesigned they have no place in this line - they are just atrocious. NO METEORBS!

    The Rock People on the other hand need to be made!!! I can't wait to see them!!!

    I am in the same boat. I want EVERYTHING... except Meteorbs.
