    Answers to WTFWTK 2.53!

    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 53 questions!

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

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

    1. nanoFatato:
    When/if Slush Head shows up, is possible to make a fillable helmet? This way it can be filled with water directly by collectors, avoiding all the security problems that comes with toys sold with liquid. The same could be done for Mosquitor.


    We suppose most ideas could be “possible”, but in all honestly there is not a Slush Head figure in development right now so discussions simply haven’t taken place. When, and if, we get to Slush Head you will be sure we will take fan comments like this to the table to make sure we do Slush Head right!

    2. zodak74:
    Are vehicles from the 2002 line on the table for re-doing in MOTUC style (War Whale, Battle Ram Chariot, etc), or just
    the original MOTU toys (Wind Raider, Attak Trak, etc)?


    They certainly are available, but our focus will remain on the vintage vehicles first. We’ll have to see how the first vehicle does in the fall before looking into any future executions.

    3. motufan425:
    For characters such as Sweet Bee, Flutterina and Peakablue who have long hair as well as the wings on their backs, how will their hair be designed as to not hinder the wing movement?


    Same comment as Slushhead above on this one. Neither of these figures are in development right now so discussion like this simply has not taken place. While we have character selection and roll out thought out well in advance, actual execution and development discussions have not taken place.

    4. Sabretooth:
    When MossMan was flocked you mentioned that you flocked some test-figures prior to that just to see how flocking
    works with all the MOTUC articulation. Did you try to test flocking on BattleCat/Panthor too? If so, will you please post pictures of this test-flock so that fans can see how a flocked MOTUC Panthor would potentially appear?


    Since the vote went for unflocked Panthor, we never actually developed or looked into the flocked version for this release. We have such limited resources for the MOTUC line that we just don’t have the time to spare mocking up figures that are not scheduled for release.

    5. CanadaClassics:
    The Palace Guards 2-packs as army builders are fantastic because of their many variations. When/if you guys get to the Horde Trooper, will you create enough "variation" to make him a 2-pack? Or will he be released as just a single monthly figure with a very large production run?


    Both executions are certainly possible. Plus we have seen some great suggestions online for variants on the Troopers for different environments that might be fun to explore one day!

    Oh man. Mike Bock is going to be devestated over answer #1...and I'm devestated over answer #3. Mattel's trademark for Sweet Bee is going to expire soon, I believe. What the heck is going on?!

    Damn, that's a shame about Peekablue. She's one of the POP girls I'm most looking forward to (right after Frosta, of course )

    I wouldn't get too upset. TG said that Bow was not coming any time soon, and it was about a year later (it was supposed to be even less, because She-Ra switched places with him).

    It's true, when I was searching for a quote about the Weapon's Rack being $15 I found an answer saying Man-E-Faces wasn't planned...and that answer was from December or January.

    I have my fingers crossed for Sweet Bee later this year!

    Plus, it said "neither" of the figures had been discussed... But there were three figures on the list (One = not, two = neither, three+ = none)

    You know, I tried keeping score of that.

    But it'a a euphemism for "We can't comment on any figures past Man-E-Faces right now!". Mattel has said that Whiplash wasn't planned anytime soon, only for Whiplash to show up at NYTF. Then last summer they said somewhere that the $40 item wasn't going to be a large scale beast, but then we get Megator.

    I'm sure they've had to had discussions about the super hard characters during the super easy character months, like Clamp Champ, Glimmer or Oo-Larr.

    Oo-Larr • Sagitar • Cloak and Dagger Evil-Lyn • 200X Prince Adam • 200X Sorceress • Ninjor • Tung Lashor • Sssqueeze • Angella • Perfuma • Mermista • Evilseed (MYP)

    i guess if sweet bee is coming at the end of the year, they might not have done her yet - fingers crossed she turns up this year

    How far in advance are these sculpted? As not in development "right now" could easily mean that the 4H are starting work on them tomorrow for the December figure!
    Tweet Me!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Why sceptical? They didn't have samples for the SDCC vote, and after that it was clear they were going to do unflocked. Why waste time & effort on something they wouldn't be doing for at least a year?

    It seems there are pretty poor possibilities for fans to ever get a flocked Panthor... or then, MAYBE much later in the line.

    Interesting answers, anyway, even though I think they're not very positive ones.

    Some of the nagging doubts I had seem to be confirmed, little by little.

    Nice to see they're considering the Horde Troopers as a single-carded figure. It really shouldn't waste an army-builder slot imo, it's a bunch of generic identical robots with little room for differences. I'd prefer they saved army builders for characters with room for biological variations and other differences.

    So WOOT to my question being answered but really that answer was lame.
    The worst thing that happens to you can be the best thing for you if you don't let it get the best of you.

    Maybe it means we'll actually see him pretty soon....TG said the same thing about Bow, Whiplash, and Man-E-Faces.

    I'm really looking forward to Slush-Head & Flogg too.

    In all honesty, I think that they're just saying that to throw us off, I think he'll be out by next year.
    Does Galactus fart?
