    I'd love to know if Mr.Robinson can tell us just how closely the DC series is going to follow things from the MOTUC canon given that the digital supplemental seems to be following it pretty closely.

    Did DC/Mattel give you a synopsis for what direction to take the storyline in, or were you given the freedom to decide what plot lines you would develop?

    She-Ra. Is she appearing or at least acknowledged in the new continuity?

    If not, why? (and please consider adding her and her allies in future volumes)

    Not that I'm complaining, but why did you choose the blonde version of Teela over the more known red haired version?

    Why do you change the design, although MOTUC have a current design?

    Are the secrets of Castle Greyskull still Skeletor's goal? Or is he content to be rid of He-Man & the others, just to rule Eternia? If the secrets don't interest him, is this because you found the original story-line too stale?

    Do you have a favorite MOTU character? If so, will he/she/it appear in the miniseries?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Is the story completely independent from former MOTU stories, like minicomics, cartoons and comics? Or will you take elements/stories of those and explore them further?

    I'd like to ask,

    Will this mini-series be written with more violence and gore than previous incarnations of MOTU or will it be toned down to keep it's pace only showing it where it is needed story wise?

    What direction were you given by Mattel? Recent MOTUC mini-comics were directed a selling toys, did you have anything like this, or were you given the characters and told have fun?

    What direction did Mattel give?

    Thank you

    If an aspiring comic book writer (like myself) wanted to try to work on a future Masters of the Universe series, should he/she try to contact the offices of DC Comics or Mattel? (or both?) Thanks for your time!

    1. In a preview comic pic we see a blonde woman with a jewel encrusted sword. Is this She-Ra or vintage DC comics Teela?

    2. What memories do you have of the franchise as a fellow Brit?

    3. When approaching a popular line like this, what was the main thing you wanted to bring to the comic's mythos and the one thing you wanted to maintain?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Do you have access to the mini-comics characters? I'd love to see Princess Rana and others.

    There are some great characters from the vintage mini-comics, will any of them see revivals in the new series?

    *edit* Darn! danielsan52 beat me to it!
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Is She-Ra and her band of rebels going to be featured? And if not, why not?

    Characters:
    1. did mattel give you a list of characters they wanted you to promote in your story or were you free to choose? a lot of fans are afraid that new characters (like "Agent Spector") might be featured more prominently than the many established characters we love.

    Design:
    2. how did you approach the new character design? was it "just" a matter of fashion (e.g. the mail coats) or was it supposed to pay hommage to the 80's (e.g. Beast Man's Mr. T. haircut). Did you try to give them all a unifying look (again the mail) or did you look at each character seperately? For instance, when the Four Horsemen relaunched MOTU they looked for what was unique and already in the characters, and intensified that (Beast Man looked more like a beast/gorilla, Buzz-Off looked more like an insect, MAA looked more like a guy who invents weaponry/tech stuff, Trap Jaw looked more like a Frankenstein-esque cyborg...).

    If the blonde woman in the bikini, with silver sword is Teela...why does she look so similar to She-Ra...and have She-Ra's Sword of Protection? If she's She-Ra...why is she wearing a bikini?
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    If this mini series is successful, will there be any long term plans for a monthly ongoing comic. And if so will it be a continuous story from the mini series or a completely new storyline.

    With multiple cannons to choose from, where did you draw inspirations from if any? Were you a fan of the series prior incarnations? Will you be creating or developing any original back stories or characters of your own? Will all the digital mini comics a colaborative effort that tie into the greater story of the 6 issue run or are they separate tales that are not vital to the overall story? Thank you.

    Out of all the art you've seen so far for the series, tell us about the one image that just blew you away in capturing what you want fans to get out of the series.
