Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:

- 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!

- 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 RockinHard.
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):
Will all figures, including those with capes, be able to ride/sit in the vehicles?
2. Tundra Torque:
How do you think the fans at SDCC will react to the four big MOTUC announcements?
3. Count Marzo:
If you guys had access to Filmation characters in MOTUC, which ones would you love to do? Obviously Shadow Weaver is up there, but which others?
Hi Toyguru. Since you said 200 plus bios were written in case of the possible release of all those characters, what are your favorite three bios, even if those characters may never be released?
I know that the only figures that are approved and in development are through early 2012, but you have stated that you have a penciled out plan for the line through 2016. In this plan have you represented all of the MOTUC factions (Great Rebellion, Heroic Warriors, Galactic Protectors, Evil Horde, Snakemen, Evil Warriors, and Space Mutants) with army builder packs?
So ask those questions!
For Hordak. To the death.
In the latest Q & A 1/6/2011. It was stated "overall we are cutting down on the reissues going forward. You won’t see as many in 2012". With this cutdown will we see the "The Original" starburst disappear as fans who recieve the subscriptions are recieveing their figures with starburst when id say alot of them dont want there MOC with starburst, (i know i dont) i know recently alot of Aussies with the subscription recieved Catra with "The Original" starburst and are left with a MOC figure they really dont want, its annoying, this REALLY does affect the completist in collectors.
You have stated that the line has a penciled out plan through 2016 even if they are only approved through spring of 2012. If you gained right to figured that you did not have when you penciled it out would all of those figures be released after the already planned ones in 2016 or would you start to change your potential line up and fit them in before then?
When and if the last major faction from the vintage line-- Meteorbs--gets represented within MOTUC, will they be able to transform to meteors or is that considered an "action feature" that would be left out?
Will we see a Fighting Foe Man sooner than later or the faction is (for the moment) only used for the bios?
What criteria do you use or follow to determine who the Club Eternia subscription figure will be?

Do you plan on remaking He-Man with the new ankle joints or any other improvements?

Heroic Troubled Soul
Are there any plans to release new versions of King Grayskull in both stone statue deco, and green Spirit of Grayskull deco? Please note that i'm not asking for a reissue of the SDCC exclusive variants you did a few years ago; these would be all-new variants that would allow collectors who missed out on those figures to buy a cheaper alternative.

Teela, Goddess, Evil-Lyn and Adora all had ankle articulation that allowed a wide range of movement. She-Ra and Catra use a different style that limits the movement more. What was the reason for the change in ankle joints in the female characters, and what type of ankle articulation can we expect on future females?

No Rio? We Riot!
Some of us have, at one time, been in a rut as a fan of this property for what ever reason. Does being the Brand Manager, alleged Bio Writer, Forum Poster and Fanboy Supressor and Mediater affect you as an actual fan of the MOTU property?
