    This past round of questions were selected by King Tamusk.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!!!

    The questions that were asked in the previous Q&A & will be answered in a couple weeks as follows (please do not repeat them, or questions from previous Q&As):

    1. King Tamusk: You mentioned at NYCC that New Adventures He-Man was still in early development and that you were looking at adding additional pieces to get his various "looks". Was it determined, with costing, if he will have additional pieces?

    2. wundarwarrior: You had said there would be a traitor in the bios, was Rattlor the traitor or is that plot point still yet to be revealed?

    3. bskcase: Has a price point been set for the SDCC exclusive?

    4. facet: Who is this Horde Character from the new third mini comic?

    5. I, Harbinger: Will 2013 subscribers receive PoG or Great Rebellion sticker sheets?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Ok, this one is a little "out there"!

    Teela becomes the new Sorceress after Teela'Na passes. Yet Teela also becomes Queen of Eternia? How does that work exactly? Did she pass the mantle on to another Sorceress when she married Adam/He-Man? Did she and He-Man rule from Grayskull as the new Royal Palace? I mean, after all, Teela'Na lived a life of solitude to protect Grayskull to the best of her abilities. How does Teela manage to do both at the same time?

    Considering the past MOTU car releases with Hot Wheels, has it ever been explored to do die cast 1:64 sized versions of the more popular vehicles of MOTU?

    I missed the Create a Character contest. Any chance of having the contest again, maybe making it an annual contest?

    Is Lord Masque one of those characters Mattel considers essential Filmation characters that should be covered sooner rather than later?

    Now with a solid relationship between Mattel and DC/Warner. How about consulting Warner Interactive's Netherrealm studios for doing a MOTU FIGHTING GAME???? Look at the all the unique characters most of which have signature "special" ability's...MOTU is perfect for a fighting game!!! Those could be implimented as special moves but not only those but perhaps a weapon system as seen in past Mortal Kombat games too? E.G. Fisto could have a cool combo using his fist to knock the opponent in the air then as they fall mack down, he slips them with his big sword! In a game like this it would be a good way to even utilize lesser known characters (to the non-hardcore fans) like Extendar and Rio Blast!! Both of them would be ideal for a fighting game!

    Can we replace a subscription beast or multipack slot with a vehicle slot in future subscriptions so that a) you end up selling enough to make it worth your while, and b) we get vehicles we're otherwise at risk of not seeing?

    I was at Wal-Mart and saw a whole section of Barbie licensed Mega Blox. Is there any chance of licensing MOTU for the Mega Blox treatment?

    Was there any consideration given to the idea of making Ram Mans "green" legs removable to recreate his squatted appearance?

    Warner Brothers has an online store called WBshop, that sells many toys made by Mattel, including DC Universe. With Mattel's strong relationship with DC/Warner, would it be possible to look at making an arrangement with them to sell figures based on the 1987 live action movie through the WBshop? It could be a good way to increase sales for Warner Brothers' Masters of the Universe Blu-ray DVD.

    Hello Toyguru,

    When you eventually make the vintage movie figures in MOTUC, can you please see to it that the actors that played the characters Blade (Anthony De Longis) and Saurod (Pons Maar) receive a figure or two of their character, as well as the director of the '87 film, Gary Goddard? It would be a very nice gesture, especially after the support they have shown for the Club Eternia subscription and Power-Con. Thank you!

    Since it was mentioned earlier that the 2014 line exists on paper and nothing is guaranteed, could you confirm if a Horde member is part of the 2014 line (at least on paper)?

    Any chance Grayskulls throne will have a gap in between the seat and the back so the Sorceress's wings will slide in place thus allowing her to be able to sit on the throne?

    Is making the grayskull robot an articulated figure instead of a statue completely off the table?

    A lot of fans had to pass on Castle Grayskull due to the sheer size of it and the subsequent cost of shipping, especially the international fans.
    Would it be possible to sell a Castle Grayskull Diorama set holding the assessoiries without the actual castle only?
    This would make it possible for international fans, fans with a smaller budget or simply with lesser display space to add these smaller diorama pieces to their shelves.

    If the 2013 Filmation mini sub and the 2014 Club Eternia sub do exceedingly well in reaching and surpassing the needed minimum sale requirements, will that more than likely open up an additional Filmation sub in '14 with its own exclusive figure & tooling budget?

    Will you be making a new Sorceress figure that is able to sit on her throne?

    Many people have criticised the size of Castle Grayskull. From comparison pics between the b-sheet and the prototype the difference is obvious, especially as the b-sheet includes a drawing of He-Man to show the scale.
    Obvious question: will the Castle be as small as the prototype or will it be the size originally shown?
    Can you at least make the Base thinner so that the door can be made larger?
    Awesome sticker included!

    We've been told before that for some reason legal will not allow you to tell us the entire 'line up' of a sub at time of sign up. When we pre ordered CG you stated that we will receive everything on the b sheets maybe more but nothing less for legal reasons. Now the Castle size is revealed as roughly 2" smaller then the B sheets. When asked about it you said

    Why can this same principle not be applied to the subs? You're asking why people are not subbing and this could be 1 reason. So if you can change the dimensions on CG why can't you give a potential line up for the subs when you are asking us to order?

    Thank you

    When the pod is removed from the top of Castle Grayskull's crown could there be a hole inside that would mate with the long part of the Wind Raider stand? That way the Wind Raider could be positioned hovering over the castle, if it could take the weight of it. Alternatively, could the hole in the base of the Wind Raider mate with the top of the castle somehow, so the Wind Raider could be positioned to have landed on the castle? If this could not be accommodated in the Castle Grayskull set, could a possible component of a future Weapons Pak allow the Wind Raider to settle securely on the top of the castle?

    Can you confirm that Starburst She-Ra and Galactic Protector She-Ra would likely be different figures, and Son of Skeletor and Skeleteen are the same?

    Hypothetically speaking ~ if the Filmation subscription was non-existant this year, were any of the Filmation subscription figures (Batros, Icer or Shokoti) destined for individual Club Eternia subscription slots in 2013? Were other figures pushed forward as a result of the Filmation subscription? Thanks!

    I have a question in regards to the use of the new allies of King Grayskull. Why were new characters created as aliies ( Red Stripe, Bandwidth, Gladiator, and Beastlord) while there were 9 characters that were created for the MYP Cartoon, that we learned nothing about, existed previously, and became the council of elders. Why were those characters not present or not used in the existing mythos?
