Answers to WTFWTK 2.143 April 18, 2015 1:14 am by JVS3

Mattel has once again provided answers to your questions.
Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these!
Check out their answers to your Round 143 questions!

This round of questions were selected by Tundra_Torque.
Thanks to that fan for their help!

1. Tundra_Torque: Since all of the 200x figures were eventually revealed before the sub drive ended, will the same happen with the 2016 sub drive, which would include photos of figures sculpted at the time of the drive as well as the names of the characters yet to be sculpted?

Moving forward yes, we hope to be able to share as much as we can about what figures will be included in the sub. We don't want to hide anything from you guys and want to make sure you know what you are getting!

2. Darkspecter: Many characters have received some of their fan-demanded accessories as pack-ins included with later figures. Fans have been asking for Netossa's missing mask for years. Will this be a future pack-in?

It could be. If it makes sense for the character that it would come with, then sure we could look into it. Again it all depends on how much actual demand there is for that item.

3. facet: When Scott Neitlich was developing new characters for MOTUC to help move the brand forward (for example: Red Shadow, Bandwidth, Golden Rod, Snarl the Snow Thief, etc), he said he had notes and ideas for how introduce and include them in the line. Will Mattel be using these ideas for developing these characters in the mythos?

We want to bring new characters into the world of MOTU, we have our own ideas as well as the stuff that Scott left. It really just depends on how the team wants to move the brand forward. Hopefully we will have more info on that coming up.

4. TUC138: Is the upcoming $60.00 holiday item a premium priced figure, a 2-pack, a beast, or a vehicle?

Wait and see. We are sure it will light up your life.

5. EmaHalJordan: Will the Widgets will be produced for release in the MOTUC line, either as their own release or as an extra accessory to another figure?

Currently there are no plans. Again if this is something that there is big demand for, then it's got a better chance of being in the line.

The 2 CD-Set of the Filmation Masters of the Universe score is due to go on sale today at approximately 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern time. Click here to visit La-La Land Records site.

Also, below is a listing of the CD tracks, along with additional details posted on the Org forums by John Takis, producer on the release. Enjoy!

Info from John Takis:

Hi everyone! John Takis here. I co-produced and wrote the liner notes for the new HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE 2-CD set from La-La Land Records, and I'm happy to address some of your questions and concerns in this thread over the next few weeks.

 First, a quick response to uaxuctum's question about track titles: Unless I'm much mistaken, the titles you see on YouTube were created especially for those videos. On our end, we were fortunate to discover that the surviving music tapes included most of the ORIGINAL cue titles. There were some surprises! As you will no doubt discover as you get to know the new set, the title a cue was given when it was written and recorded was not always an exact match for how that cue was used in the series! You may read a track title and think you know what you are going to hear, only to be surprised by something unfamiliar. Conversely, you may worry that a particular piece of music is not on here, only to discover that it is. For example: what the YouTube channel calls "Skeletor's Theme" was originally titled "Evil-Lyn" ... a state of affairs that would no doubt amuse her greatly.

And yes, some of the tracks are short -- mostly stingers, episode openings, etc. That's just how they were recorded. The average track length would have been longer if we had cut these, but we figured you would want them regardless of length!

I'm not aware of any specific plans to release the new HE-MAN set on vinyl at this time, so I wouldn't hold off on purchasing the CD in expectation of that. La-La Land Records IS going to be doing vinyl releases of select titles in the future, so if the fan support (and legal framework) is there, then perhaps someday. In any case, strong CD sales will strengthen the case for future releases whatever the medium.

In film music circles, the generic term "soundtrack" is considered appropriate for albums containing songs, score or both. If a song-based album exists, you might see us refer to the "score album" as a way to differentiate the two, but for most purposes, "soundtrack" is fine. Case in point: the La-La Land Records slogan is "Where soundtracks live."

They original tapes were believed to be lost for a long time! But after an exhaustive hunt, La-La Land was able to locate a set of original mono tapes. The focus of our work has been to present these first-generation music elements in the best possible quality. The search began several years ago, and it took some time for the tapes to surface and for everything to finally come together. In the interim is when the folks behind the YouTube channel, working independently of us, began their uploads of reconstructions from the M&E tracks.

The set is "complete" in that we've pretty much exhausted the material from the tapes we were able to hunt down. It is not "complete" in the sense of containing every last cue heard in the series. I don't want to say "never" -- for a long time, we weren't sure if ANY music masters had survived -- but potential future volumes would hinge on the availability of new sources, the participation of the rights holders, and how well this release sells.

I'm not aware of any plans for this release to become available digitally. That doesn't mean it won't happen at some point in the future -- but I would encourage you to nab the physical set, if you are able! (For one thing, you can't hold an MP3 above your head and shout "I have the power!")

Answers to WTFWTK 2.142 (Real answers) April 2, 2015 3:10 pm by JVS3

Mattel has once again provided answers to your questions.
Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these!
Check out their answers to your Round 142 questions!

This round of questions were selected by 13977.
Thanks to that fan for their help!

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?

We think we would be open to it if the demand was high enough to give that figure a slot. There are still a lot of characters we would like to get to so it just depends on who is right for the line that we are offering.

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?

We really do hope so, we all loved the designs of the Minis. We would love to see these packed together in one huge Ultimate battle set, but they were just cost challenged from the start.

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?

Unfortunately we don’t think so. The giants are highly cost prohibitive to do and, with how they performed, we wouldn’t hold our breath. But you never know...

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?

If it makes sense for the figure it's totally possible.

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?

Would have loved to do that, just couldn’t make the cost work.

Most likely we will only focus on characters from the 200x series like the civilians and townsfolk of Eternia. We think we are done doing characters like Skeletor, you guys have enough of him by now.

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?

We hope so, but we think the entire production was scrapped and used as regrind for Max Steel action figures and Barbie hair brushes.

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?

Yes but they will be around $300 a piece to pay for the high tooling cost.

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?

Maybe, it might be in a new rare item accessory pack...

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?
