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?


Could be a candidate, possibly as a new Space Mutant character. At this point this is not a figure in development so we don’t have any info to announce. A cool idea though!

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.


We know this answer will sound a bit like “corporate speech” but at the end of the day we are always doing our best to adjust shipping options that will work best for our customers and for the logistics of running the site. We may not always be able to offer the option that works best for each customer, but we are trying. We’ll make sure these comments are passed to the team.

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.


These are all concepts we have looked into and many of the ideas mentioned in your question would make great toys. When, and if, we get to them just remains to be seen. But they are being reviewed!

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


Stridor might be a beast, Spydor more a vehicle. But things could change. Nothing is locked in stone - that is just out initial reaction to your question.

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?


We actually have not locked down the specifics on She-Ra 2.0 yet so everything about her is a bit TBD. And, yes, She-Ra 1.0 will possibly still get a reissue. She is also available in an upcoming MOTU vs. DCU two-pack with Supergirl.
