    Answers to WTFWTK 2.29!

    Toyguru has once again provided answers to your questions.
    Thanks again to him for taking the time to answer these!
    Check out his answers to your Round 29 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by Angel-T,
    and proofed against old Q&As by Uncle Montork.
    Thanks to them for their help!

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

    1. Angel-T: With the super fast sellout of the MOTUC He-Man reissue, does this mean the MOTUC customer base is growing or were most of the reissue He-Man figures bought up by existing customers?

    We actually can’t comment on who buys the figures, but the sell out of He-Man reissue was great news for the line!

    2. Neutro: Some fans have received Scareglow figures that were missing the "Cursed Grayskull reliquary" and/or the key inside. Will Mattel send them these missing accessories?

    If anyone received a broken or faulty figure please just contact customer service for a replacement.

    3. joseephus: We've been told Club Eternia members will receive a Wun-Dar figure and a poster map as bonuses, but it was also stated they will receive some additional items. What are these other items?

    We’re not ready to announce that quite yet but it may include things like special items, posters, coupons and offers only available to subscribers. Nothing is set in stone yet but we are working on some surprises.

    4. grenadaspice: In regards to the origin of the Sword of Protection story, did the Sorceress clone the Sword of He when it was still separated in two halves? And if so, did this happen when the royal twins were still infants?

    This will be revealed in full in a future bio, but since that figure isn’t slotted to be released for a few years, the short version is yes, the swords were joined for the cloning and then separated again when Adam and Adora were born.

    5. Tallstar: Since you have said that females will share the basic Teela body, how would Mattel and the 4H treat characters like Jewelstar (transforming body) and Tallstar (extended body) from the POP line?

    Females will be handled just like male figure in the line. Not every male figure uses a 100% shared body and some females will also need some or all unique tooling.

    No Sorceress figure for a few years. I'm bummed. Or could this possibly mean another character that has this info.?

    Ditto! as for the Bio with the swords, the answer itself doesnt intrigue me nearly as much as the 'a Few Years' Part!

    I wonder if another character besides the Sorceress is responsible for the cloning of the sword? Eldor? An all new character that might pop up as a bonus repaint figure of some sort? I can't imagine the Sorceress not coming along for a few more years... unless we're getting both the classic Sorceress & the 2002 Sorceress!

    I would rather have POP and NA figures first, you cannot have a completely dominated female 2010

    Oh me too! Don't get me wrong. Thing is, "a few years" means 2 or more. I know they have to spread-out the major characters, but dayum!...if they are talking about the Sorceress, and not some other character with the explanation for the Sword of Protection in their bio, then that's a long-ass time to wait.

    So it's The Sorceress who is being held hostage...

    To get her, fans need to support the NA, POP and 200X characters, in addition to the regular MOTU characters? Insanity.


    Toyguru, you mean Adam got the real sword while Adora got the cloned sword, right? That last statement almost sounded like He-Man and She-Ra's swords could join together, like He-Man and Skeletor's swords.
    it doesnt mean the sorceress for sure. she is the most logical but not always. they COULD mean the 200X sorceress or classic sorceress. each one could have a dif bio since they could be from a dif time in her life. or they could be dif people altogether.

    toyguru's phrasing could be better but i understood it quote well. the sword was combined to clone it so we esentially have 2 swords. then the cloned sword was stored away and the real sword was split again.

    again. we are not sure who would have that info. it COULD be someone like ELDOR!!!!

    It would be a cruel and horrid thing to do, making us wait years for the Sorceress. I agree that she's one of the most important characters in the universe and we, the fans, always get screwed out of a figure for her.


    I really hope they mean someone else. PLEASE mean someone else.

    They could be talking about Veena (King Grayskull's wife).... it would make sense to release her as a figure 'in a few years'. I think it'd be a travesty to make us wait for 'a few years' for a major character like the Sorceress. It seems to me that so far alot of the figures made are ones that haven't had an action figure since the 80's (Randor, Scareglow, Webstor, Hordak), So i'm guessing the Sorceress might not be that far away. We're even getting Adora, which i never thought would be possible; and we got He-ro who never had a figure before....

    Technically, we've got the Sorceress already.... in the form of the Goddess. The very first Sorceress in the motu mythos...

    Maybe they could be talking about a figure of Sharella (the goddess before she became the goddess)... who knows?

    I'm thinking the Sorceress (vintage toy style) is up there in the 4hm's to do list, since she hasn't had a figure since the 80's and just about everyone wants her. I'm guessing the 200x version (if & when they make her) will be a different person entirely, like Zodak & Zodac.

    I REALLY hope it means another character--in both previous lines she's gotten pushed until the end, even though she's a MAJOR character and I (as I think we all are) am hoping they'll bump her WAY up in the Classics! AS IN 2010!

    This will be revealed in full in a future bio, but since that figure isn’t slotted to be released for a few years, the short version is yes, the swords were joined for the cloning and then separated again when Adam and Adora were born.

    WHAT ??? NO SORCERESS RELEASED BEFORE "A FEW YEARS" !?

    What the... ?

    SO, we got The Green Goddess (a Teela repaint, no matter what you want to call it), an obscure character, VERY fast, because she was EASY to produce, cost effective (repaint) and all, but we won't see a character as important and central as THE SORCERESS before "A FEW YEARS" ???

    I'm sorry, but THIS makes me feel like Mattel is trying to AVOID AT ALL COSTS the more unique characters !

    And given the terrible customer service, the constant lowering of quality control of the figures and other aggravations, I truly have the certainty that pushing down the Sorceress "a few years" down the line means "no Sorceress at all". Because if this keeps going bonkers this way, "in a fews years" there might not be a line anymore ! I'm now almost convinced that my gut-feeling was the right one : they will produce the easy, part-sharing figures, and a bunch of repaints or variants, but I'm afraid that the more unique figs will never see the light of day! I truly hope and pray I'm wrong on that one...


    Other than that, good news about the female bodies for POP figures...

    I really really really hope he doesn't mean the Sorceress!
    I hope that maybe that Bio will come with someone else, maybe a Teela-Na figure or something. Crossing my fingers here.

    true but Veena was LONG before the twins so why would she need 2 of them...or would that be 4 of them if she had to split both of them

    If the statement from ToyGuru is regarding "the sorceress" and she is indeed the character not being released for a few years, this is bull.

    Just like with 200X we might not get a Sorceress in MOTUC if they wait "a few years". The line is doing very well, however holding off key characters for years down the road is just an unsmart move. If secondary characters are coming for the next two years and the Sorceress isn't out until 2012 or beyond, who knows where the line might go with time.

    I really hope the character he is referring to is not the Sorceress and hopefully more like someone before the sorceress such as Veena (who I could see taking a couple years because she has a mid-driff outfit and that would require a new tooled female body).

    If the line isn't releasing the Sorceress for "a few years", I am going to be extremely ****** off

    This could really destory my intense passion for this line, I might end up not fully supporting the line if Sorceress isn't released by the end of 2011.

    I am currently ONLY collecting MOTUC and I am getting 2 of every figure released, however this would be a blow to the fans of MOTU if Mattel makes us wait AGAIN for Sorceress....if MOTUC ends before Mattel feels it will, and Sorceress isn't produced that is Mattel's FAULT. Key characters are important to release spread out, but not years away. I don't want to have secondary characters for years before seeing the one mentioned most in the bios of the figures, which is SORCERESS

    I believe TG is referring to Queen Veena, and Sorceress will be produced in 2010 or for sure by 2011. Mattel isn't going to kill this line like they did with 200X. Atlease I hope i am right.

    Thank you for clarifying Toyguru. Many of us (including myself) had the idea that this information could possibly be contained in another character's bio, but I personally was looking at worst case scenario since the response was sort of left open to interpretation. (eg. "this character" in the response could have been referring to the Sorceress in the question or a completely different character)

    2. Neutro: Some fans have received Scareglow figures that were missing the "Cursed Grayskull reliquary" and/or the key inside. Will Mattel send them these missing accessories?

    If anyone received a broken or faulty figure please just contact customer service for a replacement.
    Can I just say...

    How about addressing this problem with more than a simple "not our problem" answer next time?

    I mean these figures aren't cheap, and from what I've heard/read from others, and from my OWN experience, us loyal fans and customers' experience with "exchanging faulty figures" has NOT been as "simple" as their above "answer."

    I mean, honestly, considering all the undue "environmental waste" that would result from exchanging an otherwise perfect figure simply for a missing accessory, just doesn't seem very "environmentally conscious" for such a LARGE corporation like Mattel, and further, seems like it would be even more 'costly' than simply sending out the missing accessories.

    Oh, and how would one exchange a product, for one that isn't even being offered for exchange??
    Or should I ask that question in the next Q&A and hope for an actual human answer next time.
    – No comment.

    If by any chance that is the case, i give you the rest of 2010:

    Heroes: Fisto, Meckanek, Adam, Clamp Champ and Man-e-Faces
    Evils: Jistu, Stinkor, Ninjor

    If the "insectoid" buck is produced then:
    Buzz-off, clawful, whiplash

    Everyone else requires more tooling...
    My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST SDCC 2014):

    Queen Angella - Hunga the Harpy - Peekablue - Toy Catra - Veena - Red Knight - Vultak - Dylamug - Sibyline - Kex Queen

    Small creatures that need to happen: 3 main twiggets

    Oh, Judeh, I'm sure we'll have 2 or 3 nice surprises for the 2nd half of 2010...

    BUT Mattel themselves said that most figs would use the shared tooling, so I guess this tells us a lot.

    I'm really peeved that the Sorceress (who's leading the votes right now in a fav's thread) would'nt be produced before "a few years"...

    What if the Sword of Power and the Sword of Protection are both clones, and the real Sword of He is still being guarded somewhere on Eternia.... perhaps by Zodak? Or like you stated what if by the two swords combining the real deal Sword of He is formed?

    Nice. I like that idea.

    Let me put a spin on it.

    What if the Sword of He is resting safe and sound in castle Greyskull?

    One would have to think that the twins's swords are magically cloned.

    Why would I say that? Why aren't the twins swords sparkly blue? Why change them to grey?

    I don't think it is the Sorceress. Simply because I don't think Mattel will hold out on the Sorceress past 2011 (if that far). I think the character TG is talking about is a lesser-than type character that will still be wanted by hardcore fans, some one like Eldor or Light Hope or maybe even one of the Council of Elders themselves.

    I think TG phrased his answer the way he did to help throw us all off and let us all assume things that would generate even more buzz for the fandom.

    What if the character thats a couple years off isn't the Sorceress but a Sorceress namely Queen Veena she would've had the Sword of He.
