    WTFWTK 2.129 - Ask your questions here!

    ***I'm very sorry for the delay, everyone. I got slammed with pre-SDCC deadlines, then was busy at SDCC.***

    Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:
    • Each user is limited to 1 question per Q&A.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by guy-dude.
    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. guy-dude: In years past, the number of subs ordered would determine how much could be included in that year's product distribution (more subs = more product). How is that being handled this year now that there is a cap on the number of subs?

    2. he-dad: With the line wrapping up, will the last mini-comic and final bios wrap up the current Classics storyline?

    3. TUC138: Is tooling an unique torso (body buck) more expensive compared to tooling an armour piece? I ask because when you go with the armour route, you've got to tool and produce an armour piece plus produce a standard male torso which resuls in two pieces, versus tooling and producing just an unique torso. Doing just a unique torso would solve the bulky armour issue once and for all!

    4. Shokoti's Slave: In a past Q&A, you stated that by the time Teela becomes queen, Castle Grayskull is no more. Did you find this hard to write into your mythos? Because aside from He-Man and Skeletor, I find Grayskull to be the corner stone of MOTU.

    5. OnlyOneSkeletor: As almost each faction has been represented to date (vehicles, playsets, beasts and of course characters), can we still holding our breath that late in the game for a Turbodactyl and a Slime Pit?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Who came up with Despara? Was the concept created by DC and worked into the Classics bios, or was she planned for the MOTUC story from the start and DC saw the concept and brought it into the comic beforehand?

    With vintage figures (Motu & Pop) getting complete by the end of 2015,
    would Mattel consider a mix like this: Concept (Horde Mummy, Snake Mountain Man) in addition
    to what was envisioned lately (Pre-Filmation characters, rest of NA & multi-generational mini-comics references)
    i think this added to a few 2.0's and remaining 200X would still making it strong for a few couple of years.

    Obviously character selection is always a difficult and potentially sensitive process, but what was the thought process behind including Arrow in the 2014 beast slot ahead of Storm or Clawdeen (both of which could have also been made using existing tools)?

    For many fans it was an especially perplexing decision given that The Evil Horde don't have a beast of their own. Producing a beast for She-Ra's sidekick (Bow) before making a beast for She-Ra's arch nemesis (Catra) is equivalent to Mattel making Teela's steed (Charger) before they made Skeletor's steed (Panthor).

    Knowing the line is ending in 2015, can we hope getting masterpieces like Roton, Attak Trak or Talon Fighter during this year to ensure matching packaging with the rest of the line ? Vehicles were integrated part of the original toyline ...

    Oo-lar was one of the best reveals at SDCC and one of my most anticipated figures in this line...

    So where does the name come from? I've heard rumors that it was originally a misspelling of Mo-larr that fans jumped onboard with. Is that true or is there some other source for origin the name? Just curious and fine with it either way.

    The bios tell us Spirit/Swiftwind followed She-Ra to Eternia but doesn't appear to be with She-Ra during the space adventures ending in Horde Prime's defeat and Adora's ultimate devolution to Despara. As the bio says Swiftwind's loyalty is to Adora, does this loyalty continue in the future time where the Despara persona is again dominant?

    Is there any chance for figures who lost fan votes (Lord Masque, Tuskador, and Darius) to be made in some form in 2015 (out of sub, at SDCC, in mini sub?), or are these figures completely off the table at least until a hypothetical 2016 line?
    formerly wayneepoo, now with better name!

    Most Wanted (Remaining)
    Vintage MOTU: Blast Attack, Dragstor
    POP:Angella, Peekablue, Perfuma
    NA:Tuskador, Quakke, Sagitar
    Filmation: Dylamug, Vultak
    But in reality I want them ALL!!

    We hear that it takes over a year (even two years) to produce a figure (from initial pitch to execs to final product in the store). Knowing this, is there a cutoff date for a decision on 2016? It would seem like it's approaching (if not here already)? If we do get more toys (in any form) in 2016, should we expect a little break until production can catch up?

    In regards to the Snake Armor He-Man, will his cross be removable from the armor? I ask because if it was you could possibly release King Grayskull's H symbol later on with another figure so that way we could have a proper Snake Armor King Grayskull.

    Is lady slither holding the staff of Ka and the dagger that Saryn used to kill KG. Also in the mini comic she is wearing a dress similar to Catras with a snake symbl on it and in this pic she just has a bra, why the change?
