    Answers to WTFWTK 2.46!

    ***Sorry for the delay in posting these! This weekend with the fan get-together slowed me down.***

    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 46 questions!

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

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

    1. bamf1980:
    Do you consider the character of Josh from the PoP mini-comic "Across the Crystal Light Barrier" to be a good candidate for a future figure, or is he too obscure? I feel that, as an extra heroic male on Etheria, he could be a great addition to the rebellion and, if made using the existing artwork as a basis, doesn't appear to need much additional tooling. He seems like the perfect candidate for a Club Eternia exclusive.


    He is just as much a good candidate as any other mini-comic character. No plans right now, but you never know down the line!

    2. Patreek:
    A long time ago Mattel had a line called Wonder Woman and the Star Riders that made it through the proto type process but never to retail. The Star Riders are extremely reminiscent of POP. Is there any possibility these unused characters could show up in the MOTUC line as an extension of POP?


    No. While the designs are cool, there are no plans to include any DC-related characters in the MOTUC line.

    3. DamnSmooth:
    I understand Mattel cant give specific number on production, but can you give us a general idea? Have we doubled production, tripled production, so on and so worth?


    All we can say is we are constantly adjusting production both up and down depending on the figure we are doing and fan demand.

    4. Eric:
    We've seen the word "refresh" used since the line's inception in regards to updating or changing already-released figures. Are there any plans set to finally refresh a character beyond the Toys-R-Us 2-packs, or are we only going to get duplicate re-releases?


    If we “refreshed” a character (i.e worked on it) it would count as a “development SKU” and this would take a development slot away from another all-new character. If we see overwhelming demand for us to “refresh” an older character (e.g. Faker with a new head) we could look into that, but right now we would prefer to use all of our limited development SKUs and resources to making new characters!

    5. zodak74:
    Many feel that the weapon Tytus originally comes with is not that great of an accessory (even though it is the same weapon Tytus came with in the original '80s line). However, since fans have acquired Gygor it is now known that Gygor's battle axe fits perfectly in Tytus' hand and frankly looks ten times better than the "warrior scooper"... so might we get Gygor's battle axe in a future weapons pak done in colors to match Tytus' color scheme?


    Definitely a cool suggestion but we don’t have definite plans right now. You never know what the future will bring!

    Yep. He's in the PoP mini-comic "Across the Crystal Light Barrier." He's a member of the Rebellion and a close friend of Bow, She-Ra and Glimmer. Other than that, nothing else is known about him. So, it would be cool to see how they flesh out his bio.

    He would be an awesome addition to the Rebellion as all the other male members are Filmation or story-book only...and Mattel doesn't have the rights to them.

    I would love me some Sea Hawk, Crimson Fury and Red Knight though.

    I was hoping they could at least do a repaint of an existing Wonder Woman figure for the TRU 2-packs.

    Josh seems like an average male Rebellion guy.

    Surely, SURELY they'd relegate "Josh" to a "real name"...

    [Not that it matters, he's on the "not before 2017" pile anyway]

    Or the never get made because, IMO, he's not a good choice as a figure?

    Josh reminds me a little of Prince Adam. Maybe Josh can be a Prince too.

    Unless they figure a good bio or title or even background story he might attract some new and old folks who are curious who Josh is.

    Can they make the kids from the Chrismas Special or are they to 200x Anime (Retired) inspired ?

    Josh reminds me of Gray. This is the first time I heard about him, but I totally support him for 2 reasons:

    1. he is hot
    2. it will be so much fun to listen to Eamon complain on the podcast about his release. Especially if he comes with a big hairbrush made of gold!

    I can see people asking for Josh. POP fans have their mini-comic characters too.

    When or IF Mattel gets the Filmation rights, expect requests to get the third villager on the right from episode 85.
