MOTUC Mossman: To Flock Or Not To Flock? Update

by Jay Cochran
September 10, 2009
Update: Mattel today made the following announcement in regards to whether they would or would not flock their upcoming Masters of the Universe Classics Moss Man figure.

We are going to flock Moss Man as much as we can. It won't be a complete flock due to the joints, but we don't want to loose any of the awesome articulation either.

We don't have images yet, but as soon as we do we'll share them with all the fans.

Mattel has announced on their Facebook page that they have run into some problems flocking the upcoming Masters of the Universe Classic Mossman figure which is currently slated to go on sale in March 2010.

The problem is that unlike the original version of Mossman which was flocked, this one has more articulation which is causing the flocking problems.

Mattel states that these issues could possibly cause Mossman to get pushed back to April and the as-of-yet-unannounced figure for April would get bumped up to March.

Mattel has released images of what the figure would look like flocked and not flocked, and is asking fans how important it is to them to have this figure released flocked like was originally announced, especially if it could mean that the figure is delayed. Share your thoughts below or head over to Mattel's Facebook page and let them know which version of Mossman you want.

* Note that the flocked version is shown with head sculpt 1 and the unflocked version is shown with head sculpt 2, and that both heads would be included regardless of which body they choose to go with.

I don't want to start an internet argument or anything, z0mbie but I just want to say...why can't we at least get pre-orders? Why does that Mexican dealer at Comic-con that everyone raged about get ALOT more toys than everyone else in line when, y'know, no one was allowed to buy that many figures... Read More

Someone posted this as possible alternatives.

I think spot-flocking actually looks pretty awesome.

l think spotflock seen in the image is the best route to go

I think Toyguru/Scott posed the same questions at SDCC so it really isn't suprising there might be delay. Either way, I'm not really a fan of Moss Man so a new, unannounced figure for March sounds like a good idea. I'm sure it won't be a bonus figure like Battle Armor Skeletor or Prince Adam. The...

Flocked. I'm fine with the delay, just get him done right. The right way would be like the orginal Flocked!!!

I voted for the partial flock, as I really like that look.

Yeah, now that they are talking a partial flock I am all for that. I wouldnt mind the full, but the lack of articulation would be a deal breaker for many. A partial will get most people on both sides of the fence happy.

Articulation should trump everything else.
