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

    This past round of questions were selected by TheShadow.
    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. Zargon: Are the various army builders (Eternian Palace Guards, Snake Men, etc.) going to join the "available year-round" group (He-Man, Skeletor, etc.)? I think that this would be an affordable way for collectors to build armies going forward.

    2. Ealo: What is the current status on combining day of sale purchases with subscription items to save on postage?

    3. MOTU_Maniac: We have read where "The 2013 [sub] line will be a little different from 2012 in terms of slots." Since subs sales are what drive the MOTUC line forward, can you give us a little more information? Are these changes due simply to the 30th Anniversary sub ending or due to something else entirely?

    4. stevediamonds: In late 2010 on a Q&A it was said the goal with product on mattycollector.com going into 2011 was to have the next three months of MOTUC figures pictures and listings up on the site. I understand there are delays being worked through right now, but I was curious if there was still a chance of that being implemented.

    5. sailoruranus & musclor: When will we learn what the fans get to vote on at the SDCC panel this year? And is there a chance of a fan vote at Power-Con this year?

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

    So ask those questions!

    I know Toyguru previously mentioned a "dramatic increase in prices" for the 2013 figures. Can we please hear more about this before SDCC so we can plan (and possibly vent) accordingly before subs go on sale?

    After reading your recent Commentary on Scare Glow, what's the possibility that we would ever see a Karak Nul figure?

    Since figures this year saw a major cutback in paint applications for certain figures due to a price increase in costs. Would it be possible to PLEASE get these figures that had these pulled back paint apps and accessories from this year re-released sometime next year at the higher cost with the proper paint applications and full accessories?

    Here is a question that I do not feel it is as important as I want it to be, but I have to ask.

    Why was Slush-Head's dome designed with the opening on the back, instead of recessed in the dome beneath/behind his head? Will 'action' features in future figures affect the aesthetics in this way?

    I feel (and some other orgers feel) that it ruins the aesthetic of a smooth uniform dome. I try to refrain from complaining about the final product, and yes I did buy him, but this decision was poor at best. Looking at him now, could it have been done differently?

    I am a subscriber to Club Eternia and receive emails and the newsletter from Matty. It is now over 3 days since people started receiving their Mekaneck reveal email and I still have not received it. From the He-Man.org Forum it seems I am far from the only one. Apparently, the email states that there will be more subscriber-exclusive content to come by email in the future. What will be done to ensure that I and others receive this information promptly?

    There is a lot of discussion in forums and pages about character distribution ratios. Some are concerned that with the number of remaining vintage MOTU characters getting pretty low that many collectors will begin to lose interest in the line. Conversely, many collectors are wondering why more non-vintage MOTU characters aren't being released. With the count of remaining vintage MOTU characters around 29 now, can we expect an increase in the ratios of other "factions" to help "stretch out" the remaining vintage MOTU characters?

    Has there been any internal discussions about doing specialty release figures to include into MOTUC from other properties, such as Bravestarr and Blackstar?

    Any chance for a Filmation slot or a Filmation subscription? Or Filmation characters will be randomly released between the other factions (Horde, Snakeman, Heroic etc...) ?

    Will there be mini comics in 2013 or are the 3 from this year the only ones you are planning to do?

    We know you don't have the rights to make figures from the '87 movie but will there be more 'easter egg' accessories like Adora's blaster or Marlena's Rifle? And where lies the boundary to what you can legally make from that movie? (As far as you can discuss legalities here).

    The original idea for New Adventures for He-Man was that everyone knows he is Adam and there is no secrecy needed any more.

    In Jetlag Adam kept his secret identity.

    What will be the way for MOTUC?

    This is more of a suggestion than a question.

    Figures such as Stinkor or Bow have tiny interchangeable pieces for their armor (Stinkor's nozzle and Bow's emblem) which can be easily lost.
    In the future, it would be great if figures like that had an extra hole hidden somewhere on the inside of their armor to store the extra piece when not in use.

    I’ve been looking over the Mattycollector website reading all the write ups for each character and noticed that you’ve snuck in extra bits about the characters not in the bios. We know the Sword of He and the Sword of Rakesh have powers so do the Sword of Gaz (Vikor), the Sword of Saz (Chief Carnivus), Assassin Sword (Tri-Klops), Smasher Sword (Fisto) & the Scythe of Doom (Scareglow) have any magical elements or are they just ancestral weapons passed down by there elders/fathers etc?

    Hi scott,
    I understand that the Keldor swords & Man-At-Arms arm cannon are comming with other figure possibly in 2012, my question is does Mattel plan to get Horde Primes Staff & the rest of Draego-Mans accessories out in 2012 also or would those come with figures in 2013?
