Toyguru has once again provided answers to your questions.
Check out his answers to your Round 17 questions!

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

1. Will He-Ro's sales be a way to see if some of the more obscure characters that existed only as a prototype before will be able to be made in the MOTUC line? (for example: Eldor, The Star Sisters and Glory Bird, and Mara from NA, etc.)
Technically yes, but we have always planned on brining these figures into the line in time.

2. Since we have learned there will be a chase He-Ro (with a different staff jewel color), will there also be any differences between the He-Ro figure offered at SDCC and the He-Ro figure offered on MattyCollector.com after SDCC?
Yes there will be. The different colored Spell Stones will be available both online and at the show (with Green being the most common). But there will also be an additional minor difference for the SDCC version. We will reveal more details about closer to the show.

3. Will you produce He-ro in the same quantity as the monthly figures or will it be more limited because it's a exclusive?
Yes, with the total production split between what is going to the show and what is sold online. But we are producing in total about the same amount as a current monthly figure.

4. Will the limit for exclusives be lowered from 10 when the SDCC exclusives go on sale on Matty Collector, similar to how it was done with Faker?
Yes. The exclusives will be sold online in the same quantities/limits available at the show.

5. It's been announced that the next NYCC won't be until Oct of 2010.
That means after SDCC this year, the next opportunity for an exclusive figure won't be untill SDCC rolls around again in July of 2010! Is it possible to see a He-Man.org exclusive or some other sort of exclusive/extra figure between the two SDCC shows?

We will only be doing MOTUC exclusives for large conventions. There will not be any exclusive figures for any other websites whether an etailer or a fan site for the time being.

6. With all the major faction "leaders" released thus far (He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak), does this mean that King Hiss will be coming in the near future?
Eventually. But we are planning to space out the key “leaders” a bit.

7. Exactly how far out have you planned the line thus far? For instance, do you know who's going to be the May figure in 2011?
We have the line “roughly” worked out for the next few years with enough space and flexibility to accommodate any changes such as fan requests and new characters that become available. This is done mostly for tooling so that we can accommodate when certain tools will become available, (such as when will we get to the claw’d hand, with Buzz-Off or Clawful first etc…). The May 2011 figure (unless things change, which they always do) will tentatively be The Faceless One.

8. Is the Wonder Twins bird accessory going to be used for a Zoar and/or Screeech repaint, perhaps with some extra armour and a stand?
A good possibility! Much of the same team works on DCUC and MOTUC and we are trying to be smart with our tooling. We’re not just shooting blind here!

9. It's been stated that Teela will have a variant. Will this variant be a random chase, an exclusive, or will it take a monthly action-figure slot at Matty Collector?
She will have an extra head, but there will not be a variant.

10. A number of international fans are getting figures with two right feet, wrong legs, etc. When they contact Mattel for a replacement, they are only offered refunds. These fans feel it is unfair because customers inside the USA get replacements for damaged cards while people outside the USA can't get a replacement for a messed up action-figure. Why is this?
We realize this is an inconvenience and are actively working to rectify this in the near future.
