Grayskul; will be up for pre-order on Fall 2012. $250 will be the presale price. The B sheet will be the base. It could see more stuff but not less than what is shown here.

Castle should have a place to put the Wind Raider to fit on it on the it. Will be bigger than the original.

Images added below.


If they ever did a Snake-Mountain playset it would likely be based on Filmation desgin. If Grayskull does well a Snake-Mountain could be next.

App game may have other characters you can use besides He-Man

Could see a MOTU type coffee table book showing all the toys in he future.

There is still a MOTUC $50 qrt item that has yet to be announced. New Adventures He-Man will be $25.

They don't know what the free gift for sub holders for Frosta is yet. Should know in 30-60 days.

Will there be a Fimlation Count Marzo......... Not at this time, but you never know. Four Horsemen would rather see Two-Bad first.

Why more MOTUC over DC? MOTUC has more subscribers.

If DC had more people buying they could do more. DC Subscriptions were way down from last year. MOTUC was a little down from last year.

Castle Grayskull. Assuming there are enough orders to go forward will there be day of sale? Possible but it will be much more expensive.

Voltron will be in a holding pattern after Black Lion till they know what is going on with the property.

Sending out a replacement part for something like Snout Spout trunk is not to feasible.

Payment Plan for Castle Grayskull? Not going to get charged for it till it ships which is over a year so you can start saving now.

Ankle Rocker, could they return to DCU figures? Prices are going up so they try to do as much as they can afford. Scott will take it back to HQ and see if that would be something practical. Costs though may not make it feasible.

Not going back in production with the Legion Pack. And its completely sold out. Look to the secondary market if you want it now.

Will be posting images of the new MOTUC product from Mattel's booth soon so check back to TNI this afternoon.

Sony continues to work on live-action movie. That could possibly lead to new TV shows and other cool stuff according to Scott.

Could we see themed exclusives at NYCC or Powercon like seen with Joecon and GIJoe? Every single one of those would use up a sku. So if they only get 14 skus allocated for the year those exclusives would use up valuable skus.

Panel ends.
