    Answers to WTFWTK 2.38!

    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 38 questions!

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

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

    1. MoViEfReAk: If and when Mosquitor comes, will he have the small degenerated insect legs the Mini Statue had? They could be added to additional blood tanks, just like Webstor's extra legs were added to his back pack, and therefore be removable.

    While Mattel tends to make the call on figure release order, it is up to the Horsemen to make design choices such as the one you are suggesting.

    2. PrinceAdam101: Considering the super-fast sellout for the weapons pack, I am hoping for more packs down the line. If that is so, would you consider adding new-colored capes from already existing molds? Keldor's and She-Ra's come to mind.

    Capes would be a great thing to add to weapons paks, but we can’t confirm quite yet what will be in pak #2. You will need to wait for SDCC!

    3. Spectror: Back in the 80's, the 3 towers of Eternia (Eternia playset) came with a whole bunch of weapons. Can we expect these "Eternia playset" weapons to be made in MOTUC style?

    They certainly are fair game, but nothing to announce quite yet.

    4. The.Idea.of.Evil: Will there ever be a MotUC figure released with a 200X paint scheme before its original vintage colors? A lot of fans wanted Evil-Lyn to have her 200X purple color scheme, and a number of fans hope the Sorceress will have her 200X aqua/white/gold colors before a release of the vintage blue/white/orange regardless of her sculpt.

    While it is not a rule set in stone, for the most part we will do classic toy colors first, 2002 colors come second. After all, this is MOTU “Classics”!

    5. radrcks: Are there any chances that down the line there will be a silver version of She-Ra's shield to go with Adora's silver power sword?

    Much as your cape question, this would be a great item for a Weapon Pak. One of the reasons we are going to do more Weapon Paks is because there is such a strong demand for repainted weapons!

    Fun questions this round! I like the She-Ra cape question! They could make it black so Evil-Lyn could try and wear it...somehow.

    NO the the silver She-Ra shield though! Catra's shield is silver! She's ALREADY the jealous beauty. She doesn't need MORE reasons to be jeaulous.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Personally, I liked the answer to the Mosquitor question ! If it's the 4 Horsemen who make decisions regarding the look and design of the figure, I think there are strong chances we'll see mosquitor with his "degenerated insect legs" and his blood tanks !

    I didn't realize there were so many questions regarding the weapons pack, but we now know that :

    1) Something about the next weapons pack will be shown at SDCC
    2) The weapons packs won't only contain weapons, but possibly capes too
    3) The Eternia playset weapons are also "fair game"

    I guess SDCC should be a very exciting moment... So far, we know that all the rest of the 2010 figures and also some 2011 figures (at least January 2011) will be unveiled. We know that we will learn more about the first army builder multipack. We know more about new accessories (weapons pack), and maybe (just MAYBE) about small vehicles or mini-dioramas... plus the possibility of new large creatures.

    Awesome !

    OMG! They FINALLY picked one of my questions! Feels like I won the lottery...

    My question was about the capes. That capelet on She-Ra, released in black, would be a really good accessory to add to Evil Lyn, and would further differentiate her from Teela's body. The Keldor cape is really cool and depending on the color chosen, it could be a terrific item for any guy character. I hope they are thinking like that. I like to outfit the heroes and villains with new stuff. I've even bought some of those awesome shields from spymonkey...

    great answers, but Im still amazed that the question about 200X colors was included, I mean how many times need it be said 'Vintage colors 1st,200x variants down the line' Poor Tg, he must feel like a broken record!

    He's never answered a question specifically about the colors. Everything ever asked about the 200X line was always answered with "We're not interested in the hyper detailed anime design" which never answered anything about the colors alone.

    Same thing about the first one = ...it is up to the Horsemen to make design choices...

    Cool. I'm stoked about the capes.
    I want an extra cape from these characters:
    - King Grayskull (I want a few Grayskull capes)
    - Keldor
    - She-Ra
    - Scareglow
    - King Randor (with a way to attach it to the figures)
    I want my other half.

    I have a problem with this question, because it's worded as if it's representative of the opinion of the majority of the fan community. I don't have any problem with wanting to know if we'll get 200x color schemes (I hope we do), but I don't think anyone should state a question as if they speak for everyone. I know the words say "a number of fans", but I just think that you don't say that unless you want to convey that "a number" = most.

    I personally would much rather get Sorceress in her vintage colors first. The vintage colors look better IMO and the 4H intended for her 200X version to have vintage colors. It was MYP that got the colors wrong. Just sayin'.
