    Answers to WTFWTK 2.86!

    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 86 questions!

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

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

    1. wundarwarrior: If the line ever came to an end, which I hope never happens, would you put the rest of the bios canon out in some sort of booklet? Or would we be left in the dark much like the end of the MYP series? I really enjoy this story and will be beyond bummed if it isn't finished.

    Your question is really asking a hypothetical and honestly we just don't have an answer. Our hope is enough figures will ship that all the bios will be revealed. We can tell you by the end of 2013 most of the "core" story will be revealed.

    2. Prahvus: Will Netossa's net/cape be made in the same fragile, rubbery plastic as Leech's net?

    It will be similar but we are trying to make it a bit more durable.

    3. Mern-Ra: Could Ruben tell us exactly why he chose not to re-deco Clawful's mace in the next weapons pack? We have been told it was his design choice, but we would all love to hear the reasoning behind this unusual choice.

    It was honestly just a design choice. There really isn't a larger back story. Ruben designed the mace in a color that he personally liked.

    4. hadley: Assuming an Oo-Lar figure was EVER in the cards, was he to be considered a "concept" character like Vikor that is now very unlikely to be made, or a "bonus" character more like Wun-Dar (that I guess is also very unlikely)? I'm very interested to see what he looked like, so I hope he gets made some day.

    We'd love to get to an Oo-Lar figure in time. A lot of that will depend on how many slots we get in 2014 (which will be based on 2013 sub sales, which as we've noted were much lower compared to previous years which potentially means we may get fewer slots in 2014 compared to 2011 or 2012. But that remains to be seen. We will fight for every slot we can!)

    5. musclor: In the talks of the changing roadmap, I've seen all three vintage lines mentioned, along with nods to Filmation and 200X. Do you feel, though, that there are still mini-comics characters (Lodar, Garn, Prince Dakon, etc.) that belong in the new heavy hitters only selection for 2014 and onwards? Mini comics is an area we want to hit. How many mini comic figures we can get to after 2013 will all come down to how many slots we get to each year. Lets us know what you think! Would you prefer Hydron, Two Bad and Glimmer or Lodar and The Masks of Power Demons etc...?

    We want to maximize each slot we get so let us know who you want the most and we’ll do our best with every slot we get.

    Hydron, Two-Bad and Glimmer definitely over obscure minicomic characters (and Filmation stalwarts like Scorpia, Madame Razz and Sea Hawk).

    Agree on Two-Bad and Glimmber, but IMO the Filmation characters that you mentioned are more important than Hydron or most any NA character.

    I would also second that figures like Hydron, Two-Bad, Glimmer, Scorpia, Mantenna, and Madame Razz should be considered over mini-comic characters. However, if mini-comic characters were to come out, I would gladly buy them and enjoy them.

    The only mini-comic character left that I really want is Lodar. They already have the mace tooled (Laser-Lot). He'd be mostly a re-use of parts.

    But Glimmer, Angella, Castaspella, Scorpia, Mermista, Hydron, Flogg, Crita, Mara, Sebrian, Madame Razz, Sea Hawk, Kowl, Imp, Quakke, Peekablue, Perfuma, Sweet Bee, Evilseed, Veena, etc.?

    They ALL trump the mini-comic characters IMO
    A Want List of Sorts: Angella, Sssqueeze, Blast Attack, Multi-Bot, Peekablue, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    Thanks, BCRDuke for championing Master Sebrian. I feel that he's so important to the NA mythos and I hope that he doesn't get forgotten.

    Whoops! I meant to include the Filmation characters listed in with Glimmer, Hydron and Two-Bad. Must remember sentence structure when typing quickly. I SO want Scorpia et al more than ANY mini-comic character!

    Seeing as how he's mentioned a few times in Battle Armor Skeletor and Gygor's bios, I'd love to know how he ends up.
    I don't understand the fuss with 'Oo-Larr'. Has TG even confirmed this is who the character is? Personally, I think he'd be a waste of a monthly slot and better-suited to a one-off/travelling convention figure. He's just a new head, right? (Stratos feet, Photog shins and standard male buck)

    Well, I would want mini comics characters over most filmation, but apparently, that's just me.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

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

    Since you're more of a Filmation fan, you probably wouldn't see the fuss. Barbarian He-Man (Oo-Larr) WAS the He-Man we read about before we saw him animated. So what we would be getting is a state, like Keldor and Kronis. Only in this case, it's He-Man before he passed the test to become He-Man.

    Oo-Larr is a new weapon, head, beltless loincloth and feet. Fans might want a NEW He-Man head after all this time. Especially if it's an Alcala head. Mattel might be able to make Mattel some money from fans buying extra Oo-Larr's for the Alcala heads to put onto their He-Man figures.

    Me too. Filmation characters are icing on the cake, but not highest on my list. You aren't alone though.

    But surely to 'classicize' this guy, he'd rely on a shared use of parts like the shorter loincloth? As for the feet - Stratos, for example, had toes in the early minicomics but MOTUC Stratos has whole bare feet with no separated toes. The barbarian He-Man's weapon does look fairly unique, so perhaps a new weapon and new head would do the trick? (seeing as Strobo has a new Zodak head and his orb+stand)

    Has TG confirmed that 'Oo-Larr' is this version of He-Man, MGM?

    My issue with Oo-larr is that he's a non-design. I was a big minicomic fan, and my mythos reflect HEAVILY on those early issues... but really, He only looked like that for four pictures.. and then he got the gear that made him AWESOME.

    It's really a 'pre-awesome' He-man... Its a varient for only a single moment in his history... and never seen again. NOT Varient worthy.

    Now... an Alcala head? with the Long hair and fierce look??? Ohhhh HECK YES I want THAT!!! If they gave me a minicomic He-man head, and a Filmation Skeletor Head, I'd have the Best versions of those characters EVER.

    But He-man without boots? Pass.

    It is definitely NOT just you. I'll take Oolar, Stratos with toes, and Red Beastman over most Filmation Characters.
