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

    This past round of questions were selected by PIMPS ADAM.
    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. Pimps Adam: It seems there is a HUGE interest in the 12 inch style revealed at Toy Fair... until the price comes up. If the 12 inch line takes off what would be a potential release schedule for figures like this? 1, 2 or more per year? And if the 12 inch scale doesn’t take off, what are the chances of revisiting the vintage style in a smaller size?

    2. Jubilation: Will there be a SDCC Exclusive item to celebrate POP's 30th anniversary?

    3. Zodak's new shoes: Many fans have expressed a desire for 2.0 versions of core characters, such as He-Man, in 2016 and beyond. If 2.0 figures are released, can we get bios that differ from the 1.0 versions to tell even more of the Classics mythos?

    4. InspectorZartan: When looking ahead to the character Rotar or Twistoid, do you foresee each being a figure that would fit into a standard ($25) figure slot like Two Bad and Extendar or do you foresee that it would need an oversize figure slot like Ram Man and Modulok? Of course this is a hypothetical question since currently there is nothing to officially announce about this figure.

    5. Jeevesosiris: It had previously been mentioned by Scott that one character in the 2014 line-up would possibly be a questionable choice or at least controversial given the declared intent to finish the vintage lines. Has this figure been revealed as of yet? If so which one was it?

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

    So ask those questions!

    And I hope to see you all at Power-Con!

    I hope even as much paint apps are a high cost these days...

    Is there any way to paint the red bolts on Entrapta's torso red to help make that Hordak head 'POP' (no pun intended)?

    -The head just seems so tacked on there I think the red bolts would help as well as cover up the reuse of the Castaspella torso.

    Hello Toyguru,

    Since Battle Lion is among the A-list "oversized" items we are receiving in 2014/2015, can you give us any insight as to the mounts for other high profile characters, like Hordak (Mantisaur), King Hisss (Tyrantisaurus Rex), Catra (Storm or Clawdeen), and Teela (Golden Unicorn "Charger")?

    With a great figure like Rio Blast coming, can you tell us for sure if the bulky armours' problem (like Hydron or Sea hawk) has been fixed?
    (I mean moving the opening tabs from the lats to the back of the figures, or another equivalent solution the design department can come up with)

    Are there any variants that were previously released that you can tell us we will for sure NOT be getting in the 2014/2015 wrap-up?

    So now we know that in order to complete vintage MOTU, vintage POP, and top A-List from NA and other media we needed the 2014 and 2015 regular sub to go through PLUS the 2014 mini-sub.

    My question then is: what about the potential 2015 mini sub, is that also required to wrap up the "All Star road map" in time? Or would a 2015 mini sub (if offered) simply be a chance to get some of those NA and other media figures out of the waiting room sooner?
    Classics won't feel complete unless ALL vintage MOTU POP & NA are included
    TOP 35 WANTS
    MOTU:TungLashor/Gwildor/Dragstor/Saurod/Ninjor
    POP:Angella/Mermista/Peekablue/Perfuma
    NA:Crita/Darius/Nocturna/Sagitar/Sebrian/Tuskador/Kayo/Lizzor/Andros/Hoove
    FILMATION: DreeElle/Imp/Montork/Kittrina/Sunder/Twiggets/Masque
    MISC:Lodar/Veena/Miro/Delora/Hawke/OOLarr/Prahvus/Dare/EvilSeed

    You said if 2015 doesnt go through that we will only get the four figures shown at sdcc. But if the numbers are high enough is it possible to get a six figure mini sub???
    My top 12....1 Dragstor, 2 Multibot, 3 Twistoid, 4 Perfuma, 5 Spinneralla, 6 Mermesta. 7 Tuskador, 8 Kayo, 9 Lizzor 10 Lordar, 11 Lizardman, 12 Calix

    If there was ever talk to reintroduce He-Man into the retail environment, do you believe we would see another relaunch similar to 200X, or a new era like the Son of He-Man?

    Are there any 200x/MYP characters FIGURES (not beast) slotted for 2014/2015 road map? Correct me if I an wrong, but was the map to 2015 suppose to include vintage, the rest of vintage POP and popular characters from other eras? Hearing fans talk about who is left in vintage, POP, and Filmation makes me think there is no hope for a 200x/MYP character until 2016. I honestly only expect one each year. I just want to know is that too much to hope for.

    Is there a design behind Seferus Kur/Horde Lord or is he currently still just a name?

    What is the meaning/significance of the Unnamed One's second head and magic blast? We were told we would discover these details when we receive the figure, yet there is nothing explaining them in the bio, the mini comic, or their physical appearance.
    MELIAC in MOTUC! We need a mutant, alien, cyclops, reformed baddie, sheriff in the mix!

    PLEASE ANNOUNCE DRAGSTOR SOON!

    You recently mentioned that the lower percentage sell in for the Etheria mini-sub has made you (and Matty management) rethink the possibility of a mini-sub for 2015, if that line gets the go ahead. However, in the past hitting a Tier 2 for the main line sub is usually the deciding factor for whether a mini-sub is offered. So, if we hit a Tier 2 type of investment for the 2015 sub does this mean we may still see a mini-sub or other similar goodies next year?
    Harken to the coming of RIO BLAST!!

    If there is no plan on doing other variations of He-man, Skeletor, Hordak, and She-ra! Do you think we could get a Armors pack that is sculpted to fit over these figures. I.E. Buzz Saw, Terror Claws, Flying Fists, Laser Light, Ice & Fire armor variations, this could be more plausible than re-sculpting whole new figures. So far all else has been wonderful.
