    Answers to WTFWTK 2.42!

    Mattel has once again provided answers to your questions.
    Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these!
    Check out their answers to your Round 41 questions!

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

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

    1. Drewsky:
    Because of Castle Grayskull's cost, would it be feasible to perhaps sell Grayskull first as a hollow shell with a jawbridge (basic set), then sell other sets to add on to the castle later on (for example: one package having all the weapons and weapon racks, another having the throne and floor with trap door, etc)? This way people could make the castle the way they want according to their budget.


    If we took the energy and time to have a Grayskull sculpted, we would likely sell it as a whole. It would actually take twice the amount of logistics to break it up, and in the end that might kill the concept. If we did a playset, we would not break it up to help streamline the project.

    2. Lord_Of_Destruction:
    You say the 200X look is retired, but weren't we promised a 200X Prince Adam variant in Classics? How would this be approached given that the appeal of 200X Adam is that he is a younger figure with a smaller body instead of simply a He-Man repaint?


    Fans have yet to see a teenage MOTUC figure. A teenage Adam would be a new buck in Classics style, so smaller, but without 200X anime hyper detail. Adam would be a great candidate to do a teen version. Time will tell when and if this happens.

    3. SLO-MAN:
    The original NA He-Man figure came with a removable full body golden armor. He also had a chest harness as part of his torso sculpt. With the way removable armor is made in MOTUC, I can't really see how he could get both.
    When we finally get to a NA He-Man variant, will he come with the chest harness and the full body golden armor, or just one of those?


    It is too early to tell. We have yet to discuss this figure with the Horsemen, but we imagine a clever solution would be found to please as many fans as possible. No NA He-Man figure to announce right now.

    4. Bulkhide:
    Mer-Man has some of the most unique armor and weapons in MOTUC due to them being very aquatic based. If you make species-based 2-Packs or characters, like Ceratus/Caligars or Lord Dactys/Speleans, would they have more unique accessories based on their physical attributes or reuse other characters' accessories?


    Likely, it’ll be a little of both. We would love to get to these types of army builders in time and really flesh out the armies of Eternia.

    5. Mr. Shokoti:
    When it comes time for Queen Marlena to be given a MOTUC release, will we get a definitive answer as to if she was originally from Earth or will that topic not be mentioned much like whether Battle Cat can talk or not?


    You will learn this answer in her bio. We do plan to get to Queen Marlena in time.

    Can't wait for Queen Marlena. It'll be great to have the whole Royal Family.

    Word.

    A great answer to the saga of 200X Adam. Mattel knows that making an Adam out of the He-Man buck misses the entire point of the 16 year old Adam.

    And Queen Marlena's bio will answer whether she's from Earth or not.

    So does that mean that Marlena IS from Earth.

    I mean, if it will be mentioned in her bio, I doubt they would say "P.S. Marleana is NOT from Earth."

    I'm just having fun. I know they could say something like "Hailing from Eternia's blah blah blah, Marlena etc, etc, etc"

    I'm pretty sure they'll say she's from Earth.

    On teenage Adam - If they make him, are there any other characters that could share the new buck? Off-hand I can't think of anyone.

    Without obtaining rights to Filmation, I don't think so. There are a few characters in MOTU, PoP, and NA that could fit the bill, though.

    I don't see anyone else. And like I said before. Why would Mattel create a newly tooled body for just one figure? And using the DCUC bodys just wouldn't work since they're not in the correct scale. a 200X version of Adam using it would look odd and out of place.

    The only character that springs to mind for me is Caz, but the NA toon exclusive characters are still off limits.

    Saurod has a slender body. They could always tool something over 200X Adam's slim torso that would resemble the original Saurod's.

    For that matter, NA heroes could be a slimmer bunch. 200X Adam would be made into the MOTUC with the same height as all other figures. So the only difference is "beefy to lean" to differentiate Adam's body type.

    I also like this answer a lot!

    Any time new bucks are thrown into the MOTUC mix, I'm listening!

    I don't see why they have to have Filmation rights to say she's from earth, even if she never had an earth connection in anything else.
    Having Filmation rights is more about trademarked designs.

    It's a good answer, but a scary one at that. If we can't get a second female buck because of MAJOR issues that have proven to be recurring what are the chances we'd get a second male 'teenage' buck that can only be used ONCE?
