There are a lot of sites reporting that Masters
of the Universe has ended.
This is not true. Many of these sites talked with sales reps on the Toy
Fair floor who are not privy to the behind-the-scenes workings of Mattel.
This is usually the way of large companies. We point to Mattel
Customer Service as an example of this, who swore to almost everyone who
called that Masters would be at Toy Fair.
He-Man.org has recently had some contact with the
decision makers at Mattel. And while
they cannot offer any news yet on the future of the line, it is evident
that they are very aware of MOTU's popularity and have also seen the petition.
Mattel is still discussing what can
be done, as Masters continues to sell well internationally and has a large
US collector's fan base.
Don't let these reports sway your opinion of the
new line, and don't let them discourage your support. He-Man.org has had
its finger near the pulse of this line since it was launched, and we wouldn't
steer you wrong. So please continue to show your support, please continue
to call and e-mail
Mattel to let them know you still
want MOTU, and spread the word about the petition!
