WTFWTK 2.53 - Ask your questions here!
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.
Previous WTFWTK sessions (questions and Mattel answers):
This past round of questions were selected by oICEMANo,
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):
With the Vikor figure we see a new take on ankle joints - the pin is no longer visible and the middle part (the loop) is visibly thicker. What can we expect in terms of improved joint tightness or is this purely an aesthetic change? Fans are tired of loose ankles especially in the right ankle.
You said before that “We have thought about adding in some all new characters, but if we did so it would take a special event or release.”
What kind of "very special event" would it take to go ahead with a few completely new characters? The Masters of the Universe 30th anniversary perhaps?
With the 200+ bios that have already been written up for MOTUC figures, do any of these bios include Filmation characters that you presently have no access to but were included "just in case" the characters become available in the future?
It looks like the DCUC Wave 17 Wonder Woman variant has some new torso tooling, helping to make her look less "insectoid" and giving the female action figure an overall better appearance. Will this type of torso articulation be considered for future female MOTUC figures, which would also give them more movement? Teela, Adora, Evil-Lyn and She-Ra's plastic dresses have hindered that area of movement.
5. Power Sword:
Is the 2002 Battle Sound He-Man figure an option for a MOTUC He-Man variant? I want to make it clear that I'm not asking for any anime styling or the sound feature. I like the armor over the fur loincloth, the chest plate armor with chain mail underneath & the cool fur sword sheath. If the "H" symbol is a separate piece that's glued on, the armor could also be used for a 2002-inspired King Randor MOTUC variant.
So ask those questions!
