1. Mr Roboto:
What criteria do you use or follow to determine who the Club Eternia subscription figure will be?


In the past (with Wun-Dar and Preternia He-Man) we tried to pick characters that were not essential but would be rewarding to completionsists and die hard fans. For 2012 for the 30th we are doing something a bit more special.

2. Buesefus:
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?


The type of articulation given to each characters is not standardized. There are no “rules” but rather each character is reviewed by the Horsemen and Mattel design and given articulation that works for that character and with the sculpt.

3. The Fallen:
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, Bio Writer, Forum Poster and Fanboy Mediator affect you as an actual fan of the MOTU property?


From Toyguru:

“If anything it makes me tread very carefully as a caretaker of the property. I feel a huge amount of responsibility to the fans. Everyone here agrees that the fans “own” the property and it is up to Mattel and Classic Media to treat it right. As the brand manager (and a fan) I am always trying to ensure we do right by the line and make it the best it can be. While it is a dream job in some respects, it is also tough in the sense that so many people pay so close attention to every detail and we do all we can to make the right moves.”


4. Tallstar:
Do toy line versions of characters such as Frosta, Glimmer, Castaspella, Queen Angella, Entrapta etc. have a real chance of being made in this line?


They certainly could. That is one reason we created the “quarterly variant” slots. It permitted a road map to deliver variants of characters while still delivering 12 all new characters in the main monthly slots.

5. Darkspecter:
Toyguru said Queen Marlena's body has new parts (possibly internal), but he said he would have to check with the design team to find out for certain which parts are new on her female buck. Can you ask design which parts are new (if any)?


From Toyguru:

“I checked again with design and I was incorrect on this. The new body parts are with Battle Ground Teela and She-Ra 2.0. Marlena only introduced the new snap together outfit concept.”
