    Answers to WTFWTK 2.78!

    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 78 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by Patreek.
    Thanks to those fans for their help!

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

    1. MISSILE-TOE: Are characters from the "Son of He-Man" continuity likely to ever be released, such as Kay-La, Air-Bag, Fork-Lift, Saw-Tooth, Missile-Toe, Ever-Mean and Bug-Eye? If so, have they been scheduled in at any point for inclusion in MOTUC?

    They are definitely figures we have talked about, but nothing to announce quite yet. Stay tuned!

    2. He-Metayer: Will Mattel be advertising MOTUC in DC's upcoming Masters of the Universe mini-series?

    That is still being reviewed but we would like to!

    3. Scorpia: The Sorceress doesn't stand up straight when being posed due to the weight of her wings. How will future females with the need for wings (Angella, Flutterina) or 'backpack' accessories (Castaspella, Peekablue) be handled so they don't see the same fate?

    From ToyGuru:
    I have 5 samples of her and all 5 stand perfectly. If you have an image of one that is defective please post that so we can pass to our CPI team for review. If this is an issue would love to solve it.


    4. Barbecue17: When I was a kid, I removed the handguards from my He-Man and Skeletor power swords because I didn't like the look of them. I was pleasantly surprised to see them removed in MOTUC as well. Tri-Klops' sword, however, has the hand guard, which in his case I like. My question is how/why was the decision made to stray from the vintage for the Power Sword itself in losing the handguard but in retaining it for the Tri-klops/Fisto sword?

    This was a design choice made by the Four Horsemen.

    5. zodak74: Might we get Draego-Man's flame sword repainted in blue-ish icy tones in a future Weapons Pak so that the likes of Frosta, Ice Armor Skeletor, or Icer can wield it?

    Always a possibility but nothing to announce right now.

    Having an ice version of Draego-Man's sword would be really cool. Yet another reason why an effects and/or spell pack would be awesome to have.
    Say cheese!!!

    The ONLY real answer we got this time around is the one about the "Son of He-Man" continuity...

    I cannot say I'm very excited by the prospect of seeing the Ram-Man and Man-E-Faces variants from this line being included in MOTUC at all. In fact, this whole continuity is quite atrocious and awful, IMO. I think that only one or two evil warriors from this continuity are worth it, and in the heroic clan, maybe Kayla could interest me as a MOTUC figure. The rest is utter garbage, if you ask me. But given what we got with Vykron, I guess the most horrible designs are now on the table...

    These Q&A's are getting really boring, lately. It's very obvious we'll have to wait for SDCC before we get new reveals, and maybe some new answers with them...

    I believe that a cold firesword would be a good reuse for a weapons pack.

    Even though severely unappealing figures such as Son of He-Man concepts are discussed here, it still gives me a lot of hope that this line will truly go on and on and on. Long live MOTUC!!

    Anyone know when we're supposed to get the reveal of the figure originally planned for August? (This is the figure that is now shipping alongside Frosta in September.) I thought we were supposed to hear about this fig. sometime during the month of April.
    Say cheese!!!

    Sorry to be pedantic, but wasn't Frosta supposed to be the August figure but pushed back to Sept? So it's the September figure we're waiting for.

    September could be quite busy, with both the August and September figures there, Granymyr, and if the 3rd variant is to fit into quarter 3, they'll have to come out in September too!

    There are a few characters from Son of He-Man who I think could make good figures, so could be good to see them.

    I like what wasn't said in the answer to question 5!
    Tweet Me!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Is this a common problem with the sorceress? Mine stands perfectly. Never had a problem with her and this is the first I've heard of it.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    A lot of people wanted new characters created by people that were involved with MOTU back in the day; Lou has to be up right up there with others in that category and here are characters/designs he wanted for MOTU, so i say go for it! Are there any more pictures? I think Ever-Mean is my favourite, his head looks like it is stuck in the middle of a star cactus flower (those flowers that smell like rotting meat and attract flies).

    Some people (ie: me) speculated that SLOB-BOAR could easily be a grown-up PIG-BOY (Skeletor's little slave-kid) from the MOTU 87 movie: ->



    It would fit in the MOTUC timeline perfectly as the movie events would have taken place 20years or more earlier.

    Also, for reference, this era is the same era as the King He-Man era that the Mighty Spector hails from. Notice in particular Man-E-Faces new outfit (a few posts above), and compare to Spector's.!!

    Thirdly, AIR-BAG could probably make use of the RAM-MAN buck if they ever get to him, making a good re-use of that buck.

    Thanks darkspecter, I did see the 1st pic recently as well, but I needed to see it again, and I've never seen the 2nd pic before. I'm all for more MOTU story but these characters don't look like they'd be good toys
