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

1. Firefly: In your last Director's Commentary about the Green Goddess, you mention "There certainly are characters we don't want immortalized in plastic." Which characters are these? For an inclusive line, I was a bit surprised by the comment. It would be nice if we could at least get a couple of examples.

Captain Nazi comes to mind. We will not be making this figure.

2. Nemisythe: Since there now seems to be an attempt to get more media based on MOTU out there, has the thought of Books / Novels been considered? It seems to have worked for franchises like Star Wars and it has pretty much added as an alternative in keeping the franchise out there and moving it along when there wasn't the prequels and clone wars.

Yes, this is something we have thought about but nothing to announce right now.

3. zodak74: Many fans are thrilled to be receiving Netossa as a MOTUC figure, but are puzzled by a few things. There is a lack of accessories beyond the repainted She-Ra shield, such as her head piece. Her cape, while it is a net (that won't actually function like the classic toy) is a cape. It seems she should get a repainted Goddess spear or the Bubble Power She-Ra sword in her colors as an additional weapon. Also, her costume ends up looking really bland as is. Surely you have seen how striking the original Netossa looks. Any chance of some silver highlights on the skirt, on the wrist cuffs or something to make her more visually interesting?

From Toyguru:

“I reached out to the Horsemen on this one. Basically, now that we have Filmation rights they are striving to make figures a combination of the most iconic versions of each characters. For Netossa, the head sculpt is based more on her animated look vs her vintage toy look. This was their design choice. The sword could not be included due to cost reasons (the cape/net needed its own dedicated tool due to unique type of plastic) but we will look into finding another way to arm her up in the future if we can!”


4. Count Marzo: If/when you get to Blade, would his name still be Blade or would it have to be changed? Also would you be allowed to give him a repainted Mighty Spector Energy Whip like the one he used in the movie?

Whether we can use his name has not been researched yet. If we can not, a similar or generic name will be used (like Rattlor being "The General" in 2002 line). As for giving him Spector's whip, that is certainly possible. The Horsemen have actually noted they really want to find a way to include this one day.

5. king.of.grayskull: Can we expect more highly-tooled figures in 2013, or has Ram-man needed to much of the tooling budgeted?

Yes. Right now there will be at least two more fully tool'd figures. At least that is the plan today. That could change but we hope it does not.
