    MOTUC Q&A's From Around the Net (6/17/2013)


    hordak.de

    1. There is an interesting discussion going on in a German forum. Some people consider putting Mer-Man into their aquarium and are wondering if any substances in the plastic could do damage to their fish. Can you give us any insight if this is harmless. What about figures like Stinkor, who has patchouli oil in his plastic?

    Mattel does not recommend displaying your MOTUC figures in a live fish tank


    2. Fans have voted for the colour of Swift Wind, Granamyr and Man-E-Faces, as well as if Panthor should have been flocked. Can we expect a new poll for this year's SDCC?

    Yes. This year we will let fan's at the panel actually pick one of two figures to be in the line.

    3. The Wind Raider is still available and after all you told us there is not a great chance of seeing more vehicles in Classics. But the 4Horsemen made a prototype for the Battle Ram just for fun. Would you consider using this prototype and try a pre-order like you did with Castle Grayskull? There would absolutely be no risk for you. The design is there and doesn't need to be paid for, if you don't hit the minimum- just don't make it.

    While we would love to, right now we are putting all of our limited resources into (ideally) finishing the vintage line and A list characters from other media by 2015 (assuming we get enough sub holders each year to make 2014 and 2015 happen). While a preorder would "guarantee" customers, the amount of design resources it takes is just too much for a vehicle, especially when it took over a year and half for the Windraider to sell out. Had the WR sold out a bit faster we might be able to consider this. Fans really do speak and vote with their purchase and we just did not move enough units of the WR quickly enough and at full price to justify any more vehicles at this time (even if the sculpting is done, sculpting is logistically one of the easiest parts of the process and doesn't really affect schedule or resources as much as tooling and design/engineering work/man hours).


    4. How did the Snake Mountain stands sell?

    It did very well.

    5.Last time you misread this question, so we'd like to ask it again: Would it be possible to have MotU vehicles in miniature form as Hot Wheels? It would be awesome to Display a mini Talon Fighter, mini Roton and mini Attack Track with our Fighting Foe Men!

    That would be cool but this would be a question for the Hot Wheels team over at Redlineclub.com or Hotwheelscollectors.com.
    kastorskorner.com

    Kastor’s Korner: Are the MOTU Classics Mini Comic Con exclusives being considered a preview/ a way to test the waters in this style, or are they intended just as a one-off item for fans?

    Mattel: We are certainly keeping an eye on how well they do at the show. We know there is demand from the fans!
    greatrebellion.org

    Would small environment playsets be an idea worth pursueing. The palace court yard being an example of this. A few benches, the chess table and pieces, and a wall.

    Anything is possible, but no, we do not have plans for this right now. Cool idea though!

    Mighty Spector's appearance in the new mini-comic has got me confused about the limits to what he can do. No offense meant, but it seems the more I see this character the less I understand him. I thought he wasn't allowed to interfere with the past -hence why he's not preventing any of the major character deaths- but how is his (and He-Man's) participation in the first Ultimate Battleground not interfering? I can understand how he was able to take Sir Laser Lot away without changing history, but how is his taking Evil-Lyn's baby to the future justified?

    Before jumping to any conclusions, some things to take into consideration.

    1- If there are Time Agents (like Spector) in the service of King he-Man, you can extrapolate that there must therefore be someone else out there that the agents are there to protect us from (*i.e. someone or some faction that is “messing” with time if you will)

    2- How do you know that is John Spector in the vortex suit? Maybe it is, maybe it is someone else.
    Just food for thought.


    After reading King He-man bio, I was wondering why didn't Adora become Queen while Adam was gone? And why was Marlena allowed to stay on the throne after Randor's death? And can you shed some light on how one ascend to throne.

    Ready for it? Insert coin. Pull lever. Response generated: Keep reading the bios and mini comics!
    mintconditioncustom.com

    For Toyguru: I saw you on a recent episode of Toy Hunter. Were you disappointed that they didn’t even mention your connection to Mattel or to Masters of the Universe outside of being a fan? I was hoping they would mention your job title or perhaps even plug MOTUC for you.

    From Toyguru:

    “Not at all. I was well aware that my title and position would not be mentioned on the show before we ever shot the segment. It was a blast to do!”

    The vote for MattyPalooza 2013 seems interesting!

    I wonder if it would be two different characters or 2 different variants of the same character?

    I'm excited to vote.

    I am very curious about this vote... two figures and only one get's in the line? Very interesting. My immediate thought was NA Skeletor, and we get to vote which version gets in the line first... knowing that we may never get the other one as it won't be until after 2015.

    Not sure how that vote would go but that is my best guess.

    I hope the vote is between Two-Bad and Yellow Tug-of-war guy, because I'll be a little irritated if I want both of the choices.

    I think it will be out of variants or obscure characters from either Filmation or the mini-comics.

    I wonder the same thing. But either way Battle Ram is a sure bet. It would out sell any other vehicle that could be made.

    I hope it's between Two Bad and Plundor But I'm guessing it will between a character I want and a character I'm pretty indifferent to and the character I want will lose in a landslide.

    Not sure I understand this. Does it mean the other figure would never be released? Or, just released later?

    I would guess there is good chance the losing character will not be released, unless it's 2 or more years down the line.

    Battle Ram would outsell most remaining figures at this point.

    That's my guess as well. I would guess it will be similar to the Geldor vote.
    Two characters like Illumina and Songster, Or Mini-Comics Trap Jaw and Mini-Comics Tri-Klops.
    Or maybe Mini-Comics Garn and Filmation Garn...

    The answer to this question makes me mad. I don't want another fan poll, especially not between two figures. I'm sure it'll end up as a lose-lose situation between two characters I really want. Or maybe two characters that are desperately needed to complete a faction or two characters that require a counterpart like:
    NA Skeletor or TC Skeletor (so if the latter wins we'll never get FF He-Man and NA Skeletor and NA He-Man will be on the shelf alone forever)
    Rotar or Twistoid
    Dree-Elle or Montork

    I also want that flocked Panthor already! It won by a landslide!
    Awesome sticker included!

    Same here! I fear: "Double Trouble, Or Entrapta?"
    Of course, I'm willing to throw some NA characters under the bus... please let it be "Kayo, or Nocturna?"... LOL!
