Considering that the 4H created and pitched the idea of MOTUC, it would be extreme blasphemy to not let them sculpt Castle Grayskull!! NOT GONNA HAPPEN!
Except that the reaction of the 4H would be somewhat irrelevant. For starters, the 4H a) don't have the clout or authority to block such a move easily (besides one hell of a "we walk if.." bluff which could backfire if they need Mattel more than Mattel needs them and Mattel knows it) b) would be gagged by a NDA if they were pulled so they could hardly be vocal about it.

People can question his business decisions, but no one can question his passion for MOTU, and I am sure he will do everything in his power to make sure the 4H sculpt CG!
Considering where I suspect the call to switch design teams came from; I have my doubts as to how much power Toy Guru might have in this case. He may be the brand manager, but even he takes his marching orders from others.

No, I'm voicing suspicions based not only what happened, but on the lack of any solid response from Toyguru that the same thing wont happen here. Furthermore I never said it would happen, just that it being an impossibility has to be ruled out in light of the evidence and that there is a worrying possibility that it could happen.

Based on what besides wishful thinking exactly (considering we're told how Mattycollector customers are essentially "a drop in the bucket" as we've been repeatedly told)?.
