    WTFWTK 2.118 - Ask your questions here!

    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 start a new Q&A thread when it is time for more questions, approximately every 2 weeks. So please don't start new Q&A threads.
    • Please do not attach photos. Any linked/attached photos will be removed.

    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.
    Also, we also edit questions to make them more concise, to be more specific, etc. Please take no offense to this either, as it's only meant to help.
    It's nothing personal.

    ***Important note: Mattel has limited the questions to 5 from each site who submits Q&As.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by MegaGearMax.
    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. sailoruranus: We keep hearing about all the new figures we could get if we can make it to 2016, but NA is never included in that. Shouldn't the remaining NA figures take precedence over all new figures, or 2.0 figures?

    2. Jun-Yor: Why are the 2014 figures already losing paint applications, like Two Bad's armor and shield? Wasn't that the point of the price increase?

    3. King Tamusk: Since it is likely that Mattel will not attend PowerCon in 2014, because it is so close to NYCC, will you let the Four Horsemen (who are already located on the East Coast) handle the reveals/panels/displays on Mattycollectors behalf?

    4. Grepicon: I like the idea of a Pre-Order as a tool to gauge interest in figures/beasts/vehicles. Does the creation/use of a "Pre-Order" cost the Matty-Collector department anything other than time?

    5. facet: I have a question about a decision made with the bios. Why was Vykron not chosen to be one of the "He-Men" throughout the ages. He was the original prototype Roger Sweet used to pitch the line and would fit perfectly?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Are there any plan to include at least one of the 3 dinos created almost 30 years ago into
    the new road map,well especially into the "All Star Years" period?
    I think you guys did an amazing job with Granamyr so i can can't stop ruminating on how awesome they'd look like.
    Besides,gauging collectors's interest to 'em may not be too risky,after all these are vintage toys too,aren't they?

    Once joining forces with the Galactic Protectors, did She-ra also forsake her identity as Adora and, like He-Man, become She-ra permanently?

    Why was Modulok at the $44 price point not given 1 extra torso piece to allow for 2 fully complete figure builds?

    Giving that 1 extra torso piece would have made him something extra special, and would have been a huge thank you for those who have invested thousands of dollars, and years into this line. The cost to you would have been pennies per item.

    Please don't tell me it was so you could stay true to the vintage pieces.
    Made it through Cyber Monday with everything I wanted, well, almost.

    Was Granamyr designed with any other part reuse in mind other than his wings?

    The answer to what Marlena discovered about Eternia and Earth: Is that a 2014 or 2015 kind of thing?
    Aaron
    PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!

    With Classics "wrapping up" by the end of 2015 (if we get a 2015) do you have a Humdinger of a figure set aside as the Dec 2015 release?

    How will the situation in Argentina affect the total number of subs needed for 2015 to go through?

    Since we only have swiftwind & Granamyr,what are the odds of mattel makeing use of the Filmation rights and getting out more Filmation Beasts to us fans before the end of 2015?

    We need Molkrum, Colosor, Damar The Demon, Sand Demon and Shokoti's The Sleeping Beast just to name a few.
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    If and when you get to Hunga the Harpy, can you include an extra head of a generic harpy warrior so we can army-build a bastion of her screeching cronies?
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets King Ahgo

    Will you consider hiring a full time creative director so that Scott can move to concentrating on marketing the brand in 2015?

    Is there a subscription exclusive figure planned in 2015? If so this would possibly be the last of the MOTUC line, are you saving somebody special and fan demanded for this spot?

    Sometimes companies will make special figures for the staff/team that work on a toy line, which is never produced for sale to the public; like the Hal Jordan Green Lantern figure produced for JLU.

    Has there been a figure produced solely for the MOTUC team yet? If not, have you considered doing it and what character would you choose?

    Does Skeletor die, go to jail, or turn good because he learns about the Christmas Spirit?
    (Note: No matter what the bios say, I vote for #3)
