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):
It has been asked if Castle Grayskull could be sold in separate parts, sort of as a collect & build type of playset, thinking this would bring the cost down, but it has been stated that it wouldn't make sense logistically & If Castle Grayskull were to be made, it would be done properly. Now, my question is what is your stance be on a 3 Towers of Eternia playset. Could be sold as 3 separate mini-playsets, as they are technically 3 stand alone towers minus the connecting monorail system. And even though I would love to see the monorail system and think that parts of the track and a monorail vehicle could be packaged with each "tower mini-playset", that Eternia diorama/display at SDCC showed how awesome the towers can be without the track. What are your thoughts on the Ultimate Battleground and selling it this way?
We know that no figure past Hurricane Hordak and Leech will ever see a reissue, but does this apply to army builders too? If it doesn't, do you plan to refresh them with new heads and accessories?
3. Count Marzo:
When you guys start doing more Filmation figures, how will you decide what accessories they will come with? Will they be accessories from the episodes they appeared in or will the Four Horsemen do up some new things for them if they didn't really have accessories in the cartoon? I love Shadow Weaver's cartoon accessories!
The Filmation Modulok did not seem to have the same shape-changing abilities as the toy. His proportions were also more muscular than the toy, with arms and a torso that were more in line with the rest of the characters. If his toy counterpart is too costly to produce, could he be released in his Filmation version (four legs, two arms, torso with one head), possibly with his extra head as an accessory? His four-legged lower body could potentially be shared with a Mantenna sculpt.
Since Snake Man-At-Arms is coming in 2012, will the original Man-At-Arms get a re-issue too? If not, will SMAA get a alternate normal "Duncan" mustached head for those of us who missed out on the first release?
So ask those questions!
