Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:
- Each user is limited to 1 question per Q&A.
- Posts that repeat questions from other Q&As or from earlier in this thread, or posts that contain multiple questions, will be deleted and the offending user will no longer be permitted to participate in that particular Q&A. So check to see if your question has been asked and help everyone out!
Be sure to check the posts in this thread before you, as well as previous Q&A sessions!
- This is for question submission only; not discussion. Please save that for discussion threads, and Q&A answer threads.
- We will start a new Q&A thread when it is time for more questions, approximately every 2 weeks. So please don't start new Q&A threads.
The figures that can be produced are figures that were in the original MOTU, POP and NA lines, as well as in the mini-comics for these lines.
Characters that appeared in the 2002 MYP cartoon are also fair game.
Filmation characters are off limits!
Who will be produced will remain to be seen.
We will pick up to 5 questions we feel might get answers at that time. Please do not take offense to your question not being asked.
Also, we also edit questions to make them more concise, to be more specific, etc. Please take no offense to this either, as it's only meant to help.
It's nothing personal.
***Important note: Mattel has limited the questions to 5 from each site who submits Q&As.
Mattel has also asked not to submit figure inquiries about unannounced figures (eg: When will we see [insert character name])
Previous WTFWTK sessions (questions and Mattel answers):
This past round of questions were selected by Scorpia,
and proofed against old Q&As by Uncle Montork.
Thanks to them 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):
While you said you currently can't discuss any figures pass King Hsss, it was previously stated that the Faceless One was tentatively scheduled to be released in May 2011. Is that still the case?
You have revealed that the next NA figure will be a Galactic Guardian. Will you say whether or not this figure is one of the 4 A-List Variants we get in a year, or is he one of the regular 12 monthly figures?
After the Octavia answer in the latest round of questions, would this also mean Dylamug, who appears in the Tomart catalogue, is also off limits?
4. Count Marzo:
Any idea on what type of packaging can we expect the Weapons Rack and other "dioramas" to come in?
Would you ever consider including up-and-coming figures on the reverse of packaging? (ie, Bow and King Hsss on Buzz Off's cardback, the April figure on Vikor's cardback, etc). I think it would serve as a good means of promotion and whet fans' appetites for future releases in addition to the online and convention figure reveals.
So ask those questions!

In the past, you've said that doing a Sword of Power that matched Adora/She-Ra's Sword of Protection (i.e., the same design as the sword that came with those figures, minus the jewel) was out of the question. Considering that you've now said that you would consider doing an altered Sword of He with a future He-Man variant to give it a handgrip ala Triclops' sword, would you also seriously consider doing a Sword of Power, since "anything is possible"?
You've confirmed that Clamp Champ will not be coming in 2011. Can you name some OTHER characters who won't be in the 2011 line?

I hate to beat a dead horse, but this has to do with the lack of Keldor/Skeletor's 200X Dual Swords. Though most fans out there would disagree, we can accept (well, not really) that you don't want to do the swords because they were just the vintage version of the Power Sword done in the "200X, hyper anime" style. But, how did Whiplash and Buzz-Off get both of their weapons? I mean, the 200X weapon that comes with Whiplash is a spear with a blade at the bottom. Buzz-Off's 200X weapon is an axe with a blade similar to his vintage axe, but with a long staff/handle. How is it that Keldor's swords are off limits, but Whiplash and Buzz-Off's weapons were good to go.
I remember reading an answer to #1 already...Something along the lines that the Faceless One's date was tentative to show that they had plans to keep the line going...I'm sure "logistics," "it all is based on the story laid out in the bios," and "slip" were all thrown in somewhere.
And #2: "We cannot comment on figures past King Hissss."
In the vintage DC Comics Presents ... comic included with the Superman/He-Man DC vs MOTU 2pak, Beast Man refers to "Choloh's beard". Just as the "Unnamed One" was mentioned solely in one POG mini-comic, this seems to be the only reference to Choloh. Is the Matty team aware of and does Mattel have the rights to the "Choloh" character and has the Matty team given any thought to including Choloh (and the secret of his/her beard) in the MOTUC bio-storyline?
