    Answers to WTFWTK 2.63!

    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 63 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by Tundra_Torque.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!

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

    1. Jon-O:
    Does the acquisition of Filmation rights grant access to characters from He-Ro, Son of He-Man; ie, He-Ro (Dare) and Kay-La?


    We had access to these stories and characters regardless of the Filmation rights (hense Evil Lyn's bio which is setting up some elements heading toward this story)

    2. Skystalker:
    Can you please create a separate subscription that will include all six 30th anniversary characters and Granamyr, if he is indeed to be released in 2012?


    While we are always exploring this, nothing is set yet. We are trying to find a way but nothing to announce now.

    3. Count Marzo:
    What was it like to know that you had the Filmation rights and not be able to communicate this to the fans for a while?


    It actually JUST happened right before SDCC so it was more excitement for what we would be able to announce knowing how happy we would be making a lot of fans!

    4. Prahvus:
    Now that Filmation characters are game since the rights were acquired, how will they have an impact on the "MOTUC roadmap" that was supposed to go until 2018?


    We’ve populated the line with 1-3 Filmation characters per year which yes, has pushed out our “roadmap” by quite a few years. But keep in mind that each year we green light one year at a time and just lift those figures from the roadmap. We do not have the green light to go forward on anything past 2012 right now.

    If anything, the addition of Filmation library of characters (and Golden Book and magazine characters) has forced us to make hard choices as each year was already really strong in terms of a perfect mix of characters (i.e. between factions like POP, Horde, Masters, Evil Warriors, NA etc…) Now that we have additional character pools it means we had to make hard decisions on who to push out from an already fair and balanced roll out, schedule to accommodate Filmation characters into each year. Not an easy task!

    5. Sailoruranus:
    Now that you have the rights to the cartoons, what New Adventures cartoon characters would you love to see in toy form?


    Mara and the scientists come up a lot on fan posts but they may not be the biggest priority over some of the other more requested Filmation characters. Keep in mind we only have 12 slots per year and that needs to also include vintage figures and new character from 2002 as well. We aren’t going to just move forward with an all Filmation/Jetlag year or anything like that. We will be sprinkling these figures into the line a little at a time.

    Cool answers...and OMG at the He-Ro, Son of He-Man answer! Who knew they had the rights all along!

    I want Fork-Lift, Air Bag, Kay-La, Dare, Dare as He-Ro, King Adam and that scandalous version of Evil-Lyn! Maybe Skeletor's creepy new villains too!

    Also...does this mean they're kind of saying Dare is actually supposed to be Evil-Lyn and Skeletor's son? In the show, the big reveal was going to be that he was Adora and Sea Hawk's son...

    Yeah, I just re-read BG Evil-Lyn's bio and her "He-Ro: Son of He-Man" bio...and if they're changing Adora and Sea Hawk as the biological parents of Dare (He-Ro) to Skeletor and Evil-Lyn...it's just downright CREEPY!

    Dare will have the hots for his mother? That's gross!

    BATTLEGROUND EVIL-LYN - Evil Witch of Eternia
    REAL NAME: Evelyn Morgan Powers

    Cast aside by her secret husband after his transformation, Evil-Lyn sent their infant son into the future and plotted to overthrow Skeletor by releasing his enemies from their dimensional prisons. In a series of miscalculations, she helped free the Snake Men, Hordak, and Gygor, increasing her adversaries threefold! After Randor and Miro returned from Despondos, the Three Towers rose and Evil-Lyn found herself again allied with Skeletor during the Second Ultimate Battleground. At the end, defeated and stripped of her powers by the new Sorceress of Grayskull, Evil-Lyn used the Cosmic Keyy and the power of the Central Tower to return to the future to find a new life with her long lost child the son of Skeletor!


    About Dare:







    EDIT: Also, Teela is NOT the Sorceress in the future. She is King Adam's wife, Queen of Eternia! The Sorceress is still alive. Take that Mattel! lol





    See? She's ALIVE!

    I am super excited by this. I already decided that Son-Of Skeletor should be dare.

    Already posted elsewhere some time ago about how I used to think adopted son characters in cartoons are lame, (why not just biological?) and hated this idea in the Son OF He-man, though I accepted it.

    But with that Lyn Bio, I thought : FInally, that would make that storyline RuLE! Dare is Evil Lyn & Skeletor's son?

    I am so excited. I never thought this was even possible.

    And it so is. Just awesome. And clearly it's probable now as well.

    I am so happy. This is so delish.

    I've always believed that maybe the Sorceress comes back eventually. Like she dies and returns even MORE powerful, like Gandalf the White. We also have Sorceress AND Teela in New Adventures. Battleground Teela simply advanced Teela into something more than He-Man's clueless love interest, now that she knows his secret and had embraced her destiny.

    In a world full of magic (and since Toyguru is a comic book fan), resurrection on Eternia shouldn't be completely unfounded. Teela being the Sorceress might be a temporary thing, instead of permanent.

    Wow I never knew that, when was that revealed?

    I suppose a nice angle of him possibly being Evil-Lyn and Skeletor's son in MOTUC is that he'll have a dark side, similar to Anakin in SW, and sometimes submit to this dark side in fits of anger and rage.
    I also I suppose he would be called He-Man and not He-Ro in MOTUC as in this canon we have the multiple He-Man legends.

    I don't see anu reason why Teela could not be Sorceress and queen in MOTUC.

    So Kay-La could be Fisto daughter?

    Give this link a click.

    http://old.he-man.org/cartoon/exclus...le-intro.shtml

    Anyhow, wowsers! I'm so surprised they had access to this proposal all along and are actually using elements from it in the bios! Truthfully, I've not given much thought to He-Ro, Son Of He-Man over the years, but I do think some of the characters are cool and wouldn't mind seeing a few of them eventually getting a figure in MOTUC.

    What's this about the NA Scientists? I don't recall there being a demand for them. heheh

    ...how? Seriously, how do you end up with the rights to a rejected, SPEC, pitch?

    1) Remember that the bios were written and "approved" before they had Filmation rights and they said they weren't going to rewrite them and get them "reapproved"
    2) Even if they're building toward Dare, Kay-La, et al, take a look at their treatment of NA (travel only in space, not in time; came back for She-Ra as well as He-Man, take more MotU characters still with them) or the new minicomic vs the one it remakes to see that they're hardly beholden to the details of the original one.

    I guess I can't blame ToyGuru for the, imo, bad idea of Skeletor Jr, but he still didn't need to include it.


    1-3 Filmation characters a year? Now I wish we got a Filmation based Toyline even more. MOTUC will most surely end before all of the popular Filmation characters are made.

    I'm surprised you do. That would mean She-Ra is either a deadbeat mom, dead, or out of commission for quite awhile.

    ...or none of the above. Were Queen Marlena or King Randor any of the above when Adora went missing for 16-18 years? I mean...it's the same storyline, but in the future.

    If they went by the canon for the proposed He-Ro toon, She-Ra wasn't going to have been revealed until the last episode. That's pretty out of commission. It also begs the question of why Adam would keep that a secret. It makes him kind of a ****. Also, Adora was "missing" before she was even introduced. We weren't missing her since we didn't know anything about her.

    The King, Queen, Sorceress and Man-At-Arms were missing her.

    Also, She-Ra and Sea Hawk probably aren't there because they're on the expedition of a lifetime searching for their son. Across planets and maybe time itself!

    They could also both be trapped in an alternate dimension. Who knows. Possibilities are endless. I like the idea of She-Ra and Sea Hawk fighting, even through the depths of hell, searching for Dare all these years! EPIC.
