    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 pick up to 5 questions we feel might get answers at that time. Please do not take offense to your question not being asked.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by 13977.
    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. The.Idea.of.Evil: Moving forward, can fans hope for more 200X retooled releases of older figures similar to what was done with Battle Armor King Hiss (such as a true 200x Evil-Lyn, 200x Skeletor, 200x King Randor, etc) or will Mattel only be interested in original 200x characters like with Evilseed, Veena, King Chooblah, etc?

    2. snake_mole_hill: We have been told in the past that once an item reaches a certain point in production, there is no changing it or cancelling it. With that said, many had hoped we would see at least some of the initial Wave 2 Mini-Masters. Even though the subscription did not meet the minimum requirements to go through, is there a possibility of some of these products still being released, whether it be a day-of-sale item or a convention exclusive item?

    3. Dino_Ranger_White: In the last MattyCollector video, it was stated that the Giant Man-At-Arms and Zodac are the last in the line of giants. But when these figures were originally pitched at SDCC, the plan was to release the original 8-back in this format. Being two figures away from completing the 8-back roster, will we be getting Mer-Man and Teela?

    4. 13977: The recent Snake Armor He-Man & Battle Armor King Hssss two-pack is really amazing, but noticeably absent is Snake Armor He-Man's shield. Is it possible that this could be included with another figure as we've seen done with other bonus accessories in the past?

    5. Swanmarsh: Congratulations on some awesome looking figures for Club 200x. Did Mattel consider that figures of Ceratus and King Chooblah could have presented an opportunity for fans to build small armies of generic Caligar and Kulatak warriors with perhaps the addition of an additional 'generic' head and/or alternate armor, thus encouraging additional sales for these items?

    So ask those questions!

    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    1. Many characters have received fan-demanded accessories as pack-ins with future figures. Fans have been asking for Netossa's missing mask for years. Can it please be a future pack-in? Huntara's masked head would be fantastic as well.

    Since all of the 200x figures were eventually revealed before the sub drive ended, would the same precedence hold for the 2016 sub? I realize that not all characters would be sculpted by July 2015, but could you at least provide us with the names of the selected characters?

    With both rebranding and new packaging being discussed for 2016, have those parties now in charge of the MOTU lines given serious thought to how many subscriptions from MOC collectors you're likely to loose with a 2016 rebranding/repackaging, and weighed that number against the number of online customers you can reasonably expect to gain due to that type of a refresh? It seems to me that for a line like this you stand to loose more subscriptions than you're likely to gain if you continue the line but repackage it as "something new". This isn't retail.

    From what we have seen from the upcoming Sssqueeze figure, he has nice bendy arms, which really helps make his figure special. Is there any chance that updated tentacles, made of bendy material, could ever be produced for Octavia? As part of an accessory pack, perhaps..?
    Leech sucks..!

    the WIDGETS will be part of MOTUC? or view them like an extra accessory in figures like Filmation Teela?

    In the newest mini comic, Laser Light He-Man has the scar over his eye that King He-Man has. Is it possible to include a scarred head to help use the toys to tell the Classics story? Or will the head be similar to the vintage head which was also unique?

    Is there any chance to see a character paying tribute to Snake Mountain down on the road ?
    There are fantastic fan arts waiting to be found on the web;
    and CJ Edwards has drawn one of the most iconic if you ask me .

    Since The New Management Is More Open To The Fans (Like Announcing The Full List Of Characters From The 200X SUB), Is It Possible To Say If The Upcoming $60.00 Holiday Item Is a Premium Priced Regular Figure 2 Pack OR a Large Scale Beast Figure ?

Mattel will give me the another variants of these same characters ! However, there is very little chance for your Kayo, or Kitrina or Vultak or any of your desired characters if you fail to support the 2.0's & variants in 2016.... or in the future !

    The servants of Skeletor called Skelcons featured in the latest MOTUC minicomic. Would you consider making a winged and standard Skelcon as the next army builder two-pack? Skelcons originated in the UK Ladybird books. The books were very popular in the UK and the internet has helped the Skelcon design win fans around the world.
