MOTU Fan Legacies: Eon Quest October 23, 2014 2:00 pm by JVS3

He-man.org loves to shine a light on fan creations and fan projects inspired by the fan love for Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power. Eon Quest is a new line of 5.5’’ action figures currently seeking funding on Kickstarter that definitely qualifies. Please check out the images, Kickstarter link and interview below with more details!

Jon Wesley Huff, known as JonWes on the forums, told us more about his project:

“Masters of the Universe had such a huge impact on me, to the point I think it kind of became part of my creative DNA,” says Huff. “Although the line pays homage to a lot of 80s action figure properties, Masters of the Universe looms the largest. I think because I was about five when I first encountered it and I was pretty much singularly obsessed with it until I was about eight, it really just hit me at the right time. It was such a rich, vibrant universe of characters.”

Eon Quest, which is currently seeking funding through crowdfunding website Kickstarter, shares quite a bit in common with the vintage MOTU line. But Huff says it shares more than just some key physical characteristics.

“The figures are the same size, it’s true, although the proportions and the sculpting style are a bit more modern. The packaging is the same dimensions and they come with mini-comics. So there’s a lot there it shares with vintage MOTU, and of course that’s all by design. But I think the most important connection it has is with the spirit of the vintage line. That feeling that all kinds of characters could live within one universe. That’s what I’m hoping for, anyway.”

The origins of Eon Quest go back a long time, to Huff’s childhood. He first came up with the name “Eon Quest” for a comic strip that was published in his school newspaper. The characters were different, and it was more of a superhero team. But his mind would wander back to the concept from time to time.

“Even after the comic strip was done and I’d changed schools, I kept going back to the concept of this team of heroes. I kept changing up characters, doing some new pages for a comic book, and so on. Nothing came out of those efforts, though. I never did a full comic book with them, but I did develop some characters during that time I’d use later, like Uplink,” says Huff.

The decision to revisit Eon Quest as a toy line happened early this year. After befriending quite a few indie toy makers (such as the people behind the Weaponeers of Monkaa and Mystic Warriors of the Ring toy lines) Huff began to see, for the first time, there might be a path to making his childhood dream a reality.

“Yeah, I have just always wanted to make a toy line. I used to sketch toys out. I used to sketch playsets all the time. I had considered even trying to do toy design as a career at one point, before I got into graphic design. So to be here, launching my own toy line… it’s definitely a dream come true,” says Huff.

The line features shared parts and removable armor, just like the vintage line. Although there are definitely upgrades, too. All the pieces of the figures are swappable between the line. So you can swap heads, arms, legs and torsos.

“The parts swapping thing is for fun. There are also some practical uses for that, in the future. Some of it stems from the unofficial ability to swap arms on the vintage He-man figures. It’s funny how so many kids just discovered that for themselves! So now you see Ebay auctions with He-man sporting Skeletor’s arms. The parts-sharing and removable armor are fun to play around with. But they are also part of making it practical to offer a whole line of figures for a pretty low cost at a low quantity.”

Retro toys are becoming more and more popular these days, with everything from the Mego-esque 8’’ figures from places like Bif Bang Pow, NECA and Figures Toy Company to the 3.75’’ retro lines from Funko’s ReAction line. There are also some 5.5’’ lines out there like Realm of the Underworld and Warlords of Wor. But Huff is a bit hesitant to think of Eon Quest purely as a retro toy.

“I’d say they are retro-ish. Some people are embracing the retro thing whole-hog. Like Warpo’s Legends of Cthulhu line. Those are 3.75’’ and they are beautiful and so authentically done and I love them for that. I’m not doing that. For instance, the art on the packaging and the mini-comics is not retro at all, really. And the characters and storyline are all new, even if they pay homage to the past. I really want to forge something new, too. I want to connect people with that special tingle of nostalgia, true. But I definitely want Eon Quest to be an evolution of the standard 5.5’’ figure, as well. For instance, these don’t have rubber bands in the legs that will eventually rot and break. They use a combination ball joint/swivel joint that mimics the movement while being a lot more robust long term. It’s the little touches like that I think help make the line special.”

Huff hopes that fans of Masters of the Universe and other similar toy lines of the 80s will embrace Eon Quest and support the Kickstarter. He promises that the Kickstarter line is just the beginning, if the support is there.

“Oh man, I have the line planned out a long way. I had to because of the nature of the mini-comics and the fact they are an ongoing story, to a degree. It’s a situation where you have to learn to walk before you can run. But there are definitely plans for further waves of figures to finish out the heroes, add a lot more villains, and much more. There’s one villain planned for Series 2 I’m just dying to make. So I hope we can make it happen!”

The Kickstarter campaign for Eon Quest continues through November 14.

Answers to WTFWTK 2.133 October 16, 2014 11:22 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 133 questions!

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

1. AdultCollector: In the past, Mattel has offered Hot Wheels toys with MOTU artwork printed on them. Why hasn't Mattel offered Hot Wheels toys that look identical to popular vintage MOTU vehicles such as the Attak Trak or Battle Ram? Mattel has already offered other well known vehicles in Hot Wheels form, including the Ecto-1, the Batmobile, and the DeLorean from Back to the Future.

For this you would need to ask the Hot Wheels team. Here on Mattycollector.com we focus on action figures and accessories. You can check out all of the latest Hot Wheels collectable items at Hotwheelscollector.com!

2. Coptur: Which surviving members of the Evil Warriors sit within Jitsu's inner circle during his reign of Snake Mountain? Or are they a mixture of surviving Evil Warriors, Horde, SnakeMen and/or new characters yet to be seen?

You will need to keep reading the bios and reading the mini comics for that one!

3. OnlyOneSkeletor: Just like Motu, 2 years ago, any chance for a commemorative Princess of Power DVD boxset celebration to be coming soon?

Here on Mattycollector.com we focus on action figures and accessories. We don't produce DVD sets. The set you are referring to was not produced by Mattel so we can’t really comment.

4. Tundra_Torque: During the 2014 MOTUC sub drive, it was mentioned that we hit Tier 2. However, during the 2015 MOTUC sub drive, the tiers were never mentioned. Are there still tiers, and if so, which one did we hit?

Happy to review this one more time. Here is Toy Guru:
"Hey all! For the record, here is how the tiers work. MOTUC is run off of a tier 2 level which correspond to a higher production quota. This is the production level that allows us to unlock the tooling and sku count needed to offer a full year of monthly items as well as quarterly oversized items as well as non sub items. Other brands that have fewer skus such as DC, GB or the add on themed MOTU subs (like Filmation or POP) operate on tier 1 level which is a much smaller quota correlated to a smaller number of skus and tooling needed for these smaller subs. Please let me know if this answers your question or if any additional details will help clarify this!"


5. Kid Canada: Are there plans for a Black Friday/Cyber Monday type sale this year?

Yes, we will have a CM sale this year. However, there will not be as many MOTU items as most older MOTU figs are sold out at this point. There will be some DC and GB items available. (as well as some MOTU).

Answers to WTFWTK 2.132 October 5, 2014 1:02 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 132 questions!

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

1. Poweron: Are Laser Power He-Man's and Laser Light Skeletor's light up features possible?

While we do love exploring these type of features, historically, when we have "gone the extra mile" on figures, like ensuring the gears rotate on Roboto or Snout Spouts trunk bends, we tend to wind up creating more issues vs. delivering. So it may come down to how sure we are we can add a "feature" like this without effecting the QC in any way. Not always easy!

2. sirsniffy: Would Stridor be considered a vehicle or a beast? And if he is a vehicle, would it be possible to pack him with a figure similar to the Battle Ram playset?

Based on his size and scale to other beasts like Battle Lion or Arrow it is likely Stridor would be a beast (just a "robotic" one vs. organic"). He is a little too small to be a vehicle like the Battleram, not that this opens or closes the door on any way of getting him potentially out there. If anything the "issue" is not "is he a beast or not" it is that no matter how he is "made" he is a 100% tool, and that makes it more difficult to deliver him as a toy. (even if he has a redeco opportunity, he is still 100% to start and that is a big pill to swallow when we only have small number of full tool slots for the year).

3. Firefly: Why was a potential army builder such as Skeletor's hover robots chosen as a traveling exclusive instead of being a more easily available item?

In order to ensure the roadmap for 2014/2015 included all the characters needed (should the line end in 2015, or at least to "finish before the basic figure costs more than $30.00) we needed to maximize every slot available for key characters, that includes the traveling con slot!

4. He-Kal: With the 2015 sub barely squeaking by, what is the future of a potential add-on sub for 2015? I know you can't comment on specifics, but can we at least know if an add-on sub is completely off the table.

At this time, as you noted with the main sub just squeeking by, that will be out focus for now.

5. Scorpia: As she isn't released till March, is there time to correct Huntara's skin tone? Some fans feel it's way too pale/pastel, where it is a deeper, more vibrant purple in the cartoon.

No, Huntara is already in production and no further changes can be made at this time.
