    IF something like this were to put Super7 and Mattel on the outs, it would have been the figures that are actually coming. Super7 pursued a separate agreement outside of Mattel. That's why they're being called the William Stout collection. And if it's a matter of branding, then if more are made from this Stout agreement then put a Stout logo on them and call it a day.

    More have just as much a chance of being made as did the ones we're getting. No one saw them coming.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Yes, indeed, Super7 had to negotiate a deal with Mattel AND with William Stout. Without both, they couldn't legally sell these figures.

    A company could negotiate a deal just with William Stout to make something based on the design (prop replicas, for example), but then they couldn't call it He-Man or Masters of the Universe or anything else like that (unless they negotiated a separate deal with Mattel or DreamWorks or whoever owns the rights).
