    MOTUC Q&A's From Around the Net (9/1/2013)


    MOTUClassics.Com

    MOTUClassics.Com Asks: While we appreciated the sentiment behind how the Spirit of Hordak was sold, the way he was released might’ve done more harm than good. If a chase figure were to happen again, would you release it any differently so that more figure would get into more fan’s hands quicker?

    There are quite a few sales for Hordak left including an EA sale for sub holders in Dec.


    MOTUClassics.Com Asks: With the new roadmap having to focus on vintage figures at the cost of others, will Dactys be it for MO2K-inspired figures?

    No, we do have other 200X characters in the 2014-2015 roadmap pending we get enough sub holders for a 2015 line. How many show up in 2014 remains to be seen but one will be shown at Power Con!
    kastorskorner.com

    Kastor’s Korner: Can Glimmer have the boot cut joint and injection molded ankles sorely missing from our new female figures with unique tooling? Castaspella and Octavia would have benefitted greatly from this, so can Glimmer and other females with unique boots get what most male characters have been enjoying?

    Mattel: We will certainly pass this comment to design.

    Kastor’s Korner: Would it be at all possible to re-sculpt Two-Bad’s left hand as a grip instead of a closed fist? He needs have the option to hold either weapon.

    Mattel: No, he is already in production at this point.

    Kastor’s Korner: What is the fate of the Customer Service stock of sub-exclusives Clamp Champ, Sea Hawk, and Fang Man? You had to have set a few aside for replacements… What happens to them if they are unclaimed? Can they be made available for Black Friday or maybe Power Con?

    Mattel: If any is left, the small quota will likely go on sale as an EA item sometime in 2014. But that is a big if.
    toyhypeusa.com

    Q: How many Club Eternia subscriber-only figures might there be for 2014?

    Toyguru: Around the same amount as 2013.

    Q: Just wanted to thank you so much for Modulok. Would it be possible to produce enough of him so some people could buy more than 1 for the different display options?

    Toyguru: Sorry, but Mattel does not comment on production runs, but we do our best to produce some of the more popular figures in higher quotas when possible.

    Hmmm...interesting. Battle Lion? Veena? Evil Seed? Prahvus? I'm surprised at this. Maybe we'll get 3 reveals at Power Con? Blade, Scorpia, and this 200x character? I'd be more than fine with Battle Lion, as King Grayskull needs his steed! Also it would make sense if it's the 2nd quarter $38 figure. Here's hoping!

    I'm hoping that the remaining 200x characters are Calix and Evil Seed (with Calix in 2014). I wouldn't be opposed to a Battle Lion either, I guess.

    Too bad about Two Bad's fist (ha!). That's a real misstep to make his left hand a closed fist.

He explains how the "invaders" ended up destroying themselves and it clearly shows Phravus and his men right before the flash of the explosion engulfs them.

    Evilseed I don't consider a 200X character since he originated in Filmation.
    I don't think Prahvus died as it was revealed he would work for Hordak and would be in the next season of MYP. Either way, in MOTUC, 90% of the characters are dead including The Sorceress, Clawful, Hordak, Stratos, ALL the Snakemen, etc. So...we're all collecting dead characters here.

    - Prahvus would return and Hordak would recruit him.

    It will probably be the 2nd quarter item...isn't Calix bigger than a regular figure more like a RAM MAN size?

    Seems the two predominant theories are SA He-man and Evil Seed. In truth I'd be fine with either, but if I had my druthers I'd probably want Evil Seed over another HM variant this soon since NA HM was only few mnths ago.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    I think it's one of these:

    Battle Lion (as one of the quarterly items)

    Veena (rumored for 2014 at SOME point)

    Miro (rumored to have been bumped from 2012)

    Snake Armor He-Man (there IS a variant slot in 2014 - at least we assume so, since one of the quarterlies is $25).

    They could put Laser Power Skeletor in a 2-pack vs. Laser Light He-Man, and include the parts with parts to make NA Skeletor for sdcc. That would give us NA Skeletor.

    Then all that's left for likely variants are:

    Flying Fists He-Man
    Terror Claws Skeletor
    Starburst She-Ra
    NA She-Ra (which I expect we WILL see, probably before SB She-Ra)
    A Want List of Sorts: Angella, Sssqueeze, Blast Attack, Multi-Bot, Peekablue, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    No doubt, it will be Evil Seed. ToyGuru loves killing 2 or more birds with one stone. Evil Seed would fill a 200X and Filmation character. No doubt, he will come with both Filmation and MYP heads. Prahvus is a close second. All you have to do is look at the mini-comics produced. Both of those characters are shown fighting in the 2nd Ultimate Battleground. ToyGuru clearly considers those 2 important villains.
    TOP WANTS:

    SONGSTER, CAMO KHAN, LODAR, EVIL ROBOT, ROTAR, TWISTOID

    Anyway, if they do make Battle Lion the same size as the other cats, I wouldn't give them $1 for it. If they made it properly, I'd pay whatever they wanted. Scale is very important in the action figure collecting world. If they aren't going to do it right they shouldn't bother.
    This is Classics, not 200X, that line already came and went, 200X style and over sizing is gone. If you want that lines aesthetics and sizing, then collect that line, not trying to be rude, but this line isn't for 200X style. Take what you get, how you get it. Most people are perfectly fine with the lines aesthetics and character sizing just as it was done in the Vintage days, and that's what this line is about. The majority here would be happy to get Battle Lion in Classics, even the same size as Battle Cat, BC is big enough as is, BL don't need to be almost as big as Granamyr. And for them to make him would make me finally bite the bullet and buy King Grayskull, since, I've been holding out on him as well as a couple other figures I've been debating on.

    If you're waiting for 200X style and sizing, you'll be waiting for a long long time, and for another line.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

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