    WTFWTK 2.59 - 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 Skeletortilla.
    Thanks to that fan 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. Prahvus:
    Could you please make sure that the crotch pieces of all figures will allow legs movement? King Hssss and Bow's crotch prevent decent leg movement and I personally don't want to buy figures that will use that kind of crotch.

    2. Swanmarsh:
    With all the excitement about the Weapons Rack diorama set, many fans are hoping we may eventually see items like Skeletor's Bone Throne. While the Bone Throne is often associated with the vintage cartoon, it was featured in artwork and named in Mattel's 1982 Licensing Kit. Could we anticipate a Bone Throne in MOTUC?

    3. Skeletortilla:
    Since it has now been confirmed that Hurricane Hordak will have vac-metal armor, is it possible we will see a reissue of He-Ro at some point with this same armor since the original 80s prototype had it, and will any other future figures have vac metal parts? It will also greatly help Hurricane Hordak blend in with the rest of the line if more than one figure has vac-metal.

    4. 13977:
    It was revealed in Clawful's bio that his race is called the Karikoni, which I don't believe has been revealed before. Was this species name something the Matty MOTUC team came up with themselves or was it taken from some existing unreleased source material?

    5. Reboot:
    You packed in Cringer as an undersized, limited-articulation character. As generally depicted he should be a similar size to the standard male buck. He's a tiger, not a lynx. Why make him an accessory instead of waiting for a $20 slot to do him bigger with more articulation?

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

    So ask those questions!

    This question is about the upcoming Swiftwind. When will be the earliest time frame we will all get to see what Swifwtind looks like (sculpt, accessories, colors, scale)?

    Green Lanterns come in all shapes and sizes. With the movie coming out and popularity of the GL franchise, could Mattel & DC consider collaborating on a new, Mattycollector.com exclusive Green Lantern Classics figure using the He-Man buck?

    If the "cut down creative direction for the brand" is to get current figures of what "the vintage toy would look like under today's standards of articulation and detail", then when will the Princess of Power figures start to exhibit features of their 80s toy counterparts such as tooling on their boots and non-style guide style dresses?

    Eternally appreciative and curious,

    Now that the Cringer buck has been created, will this most likely be the mold that would be reused if we ever get Catra's panther form into MOTUC?

    Is it possible for Mattel to put original Teelas body with Battle Ground Teelas Head in a future Toys`R`Us twopack?

    For those of us that don't want a smelly Stinkor is it possible to do an unscented version. For the mint on card collector the boxes could have stickers on the front identifying scented or unscented

    If you get around to making a Teela 2.0 (using the newest female buck and all associated pieces) would it be possible to receive two removable armor pieces in softer plastic than the original: the first being the same design as Teela 1.0, the second being the design seen for Blonde Teela in the early MOTU mini-comics like "The Ordeal of Man-E-Faces," "The Menace of Trap Jaw," "The Terror of Tri-Klops," and "The Tale of Teela?" It would probably only require a slight re-tooling of the existing Teela armor. We could use the head from Battleground Teela to create this true-to-design mini-comic Teela, and that could only mean more sales of Teela 2.0!

    Is there any particular method to picking re-release figures? D-list characters like Count Marzo already have been re-released even though their first release wasn't too long ago, while characters like Tri-Klops and Webstor just had the one release a long time ago.

    Now that we know Megator dies and is brought back as a mindless zombie by King Hsss, what version are we getting in August. Was Megator originally the same complexion as Tytus, died, then came back as a green zombie? Or was Megator originally green, died, and will come back as some decaying zombie with rotted flesh and maggots coming out of his flesh. Just curious as to what kind of variant we may get of him.

    do you have any packaging/sticker plans for when you get to the 3 already licensed 1987 movie-figures? ... i was wondering if you had plans to use a movie-logo sticker on the packaging, akin to what we have seen with the 'space mutants' and 'powers of grayskull' etc. ...

    thanks!

    You have stated that you leave decisions such as the open left hand to the 4 Horsemen. But given that their design choice has now resulted in a Catra with a rubber left hand, can we PLEASE stop getting open left hands on all these figures? This "design choice" really detracts from the figures.
