    WTFWTK 2.55 - 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.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by kagamigod,
    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):

    1. Mike Bock:
    I have a question about Crystoll, who was Karatti's original concept. The concept looked completely different from Karatti, making him look like a totally different character. Since you have made concept art characters like Vikor I was wondering if Crystoll is being considered for MOTUC as a new character?

    2. zodak74:
    Consumers and subscribers feel bamboozled by the unannounced shift from UPS ground shipping to USPS via Cornerstone Logistics. In February, the majority of us are receiving our packages more than a week later than what we were used to with UPS, and in some cases the packages are being severely mishandled and arriving damaged. Mattycollector never gave us the option to choose before making this switch. So, based on the overall negative reaction to the sudden switch in shipping, will Mattel give us consumers the option to choose which method of shipping we would prefer? It would greatly improve customer relations.

    3. Joseephus:
    You have already made figures based off of prototype figures, concept sketches, and mini-comic characters. My question is, can we expect figures based off of the vintage artwork? Examples being The Wind Raider Pilot from the vintage poster, The Monogram Riders from the model vehicles boxart and The Cardboard Robot from the 80's Castle Grayskull playset.

    4. Prahvus:
    Dear Toyguru, I'd would like to know if you categorize mechanical animals (like Stridor and Spydor) as beasts or vehicles?

    5. vancak:
    Since She-Ra version 2.0 is only coming with one head, will she also come with a snap-on tiara so that we can still get She-Ra with her most iconic look? If not, will She-Ra 1.0 be reissued for those of us that missed out the first time and want both heads?

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

    So ask those questions!

    What height do you plan to make Ram-man, taller than the other figures, same height as the other figures, or shorter than the other figures?

    Can you tell us have all NA, POP, Vintage and 200X characters, that Mattel can make, have been slotted in somewhere or are there some that have not been even considered yet? I am not asking for names, just general information will do.

    It has been announced that you will be attending FOUR cons this time including NYCC!! Fans are very excited. Will you bring a con exclusive to NYCC? What about the others? Exclusives for them too?

    Are sub exclusives accessories eligible for future Weapons Paks or are they off limits for those? I ask because Preternia He-Man has some really cool accessories in the Bionatops rifle and especially that Cosmic Key. They would be the highlight of a future Weapons Pak IF they are eligible to be included in those in a different maybe darker color scheme.

    Female army builders...

    I'm a huge fan of the Palace Guard figures and was wondering if there's any chance we might eventually see their female counterparts. It does seem odd, after all, that having a female Captain of the Guard, Randor wouldn't have at least a few female guards. We already know women on Eternia can be pretty tough and I'd love to see some ladies wearing the green and gold armor. So is this a pipe dream or a real possibility?
    Thanks for all the hard work!

    If the DCUC VS MOTUC 2-Packs continue, will we ever see reprints of the remaining MOTU comics from DC(the 3 issue mini-series)?

    EDIT:

    Toyguru,


    During New York Toyfair 2011, you were given a letter containing the he-man.org fans' requests about some practical changes design-wise...

    Do you have any comments about that letter, or any news to give us about it ?

    Will you (or the 4 Horsemen) implement some of these ideas ?

    We'd sure appreciate a feedback...

    Now that we have had great improvements in the ankle designs and on the general figures, can it be possible to get updated and improved He-man and Skeletor figures?

    I am a fan of the snake staff that comes with the Snake Men, but I feel that it's odd that such a regal looking weapon, that looks like it would be used to cast spells, would come with King Hssss & 3 out of 5 henchmen. That's sort of like Beast Man, Mer Man, & Tri-Klops all coming with Havoc Staffs. Now, in the 200X toyline/Stactions, Tung Lashor & Snake Face only came with their secondary weapons as I assume even the 4H thought it didn't make sense for them to have the staffs & General Rattlor came with a modified version of the staff, making it look more like a snake-themed stun rod rather than a magical wand/staff. It has been mentioned in reviews of King Hssss that it looks like the snake can be removed from the staff. For the other Snake Men, do you plan on modifying the staffs by maybe changing the snake around the staff, or maybe even changing the staff into a spear, or maybe have them come with Classic versions of Rattlor's 200X snake rod so that these guys aren't walking around with the same weapon as their king, or will they come with the same snake staff in vintage colors?
