    Answers to WTFWTK 2.93!

    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 93 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by snakeeyes0217.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!

    1. bigsexy_j: When there is a QC issue, TG/Scott starts a thread requesting pictures of the problem. He has stated that if there are not hundreds of pictures then its just a vocal minority being louder then the others. What exactly do these pictures accomplish? Snout Spout and Goddess had a lot of pictures showing their problems, but nothing happened. You guys are selling Snout Spout again in January and I do not believe the cheap foam has been addressed, yet the price was raised. Even though the bendy parts worked with King Hsss after all the pics of SS all that accomplished was no more bendy parts in MOTUC. If 100's of pictures do appear in the Granamyr QC issue thread, are we going to get a new Granamyr to replace ours?, or are we just going to have to contact DR over and over and over until we get a good one?

    Pictures speak a thousand words and a visual of any QC issues is way more effective vs. a written post to help review with our manufacturing partners any room for improvement. We did not sell Snout Spout in January and as you may notice, the particular QC issues with Snout Spout or Goddess has not repeated itself. We solved both of those issues. Every MOTUC figure is painted and assembled by hand and their will ALWAYS be some QC. That is why it is out policy to replace any defective figure. It may take a little more time, but all customers should ideally get a fully functional toy if any QC issues occur.

    2. Scorpia: Stonedar and Rokkon are an obvious pairing for a two-pack but how do you feel about Granita? Many fans can't wait to add Stonedar's daughter to their collections and as a highly-demanded Filmation character, a female and POP, she seems to tick a lot of boxes!

    Granita is an awesome characters as are Rokkon and Stonedar. But no news to announce on any of the Rock people (man or woman) for now!

    3. Arvulis: Can we hope an update (even a tiny one) on the Masters of the Universe movie at NY Toyfare or do you think we have to wait SDCC?

    That is up to Sony Pictures, not Mattel to make this announcement.

    4. snakeeyes0217: You said previously that you might be doing something with the unused Create-A-Character Contest entries. Is anything in the works yet? I'm dying to show off my custom figure based on my entry but I don't want to disqualify it from what you have planned. Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated by both myself and the customizing community.

    Actually yes. We do have something in the works but nothing to reveal quite yet.

    5. Niki: With King He-Man coming up soon, the question came to my mind - How will Queen Teela look?

    Very regal we assume.

    Granita is an awesome character!

    I really hope that Toyguru makes an exception to the "no more three packs" rule to release Rokkon, Stonedar and Granita as a three pack.

    Sooooo... is that a confirmation that Teela actually marries Adam?

    I thought the same, when i asked that question i actually expected something like "we haven´t discussed Queen Teela" or worse "at this point when and if she is released..." but this answer is something totally new.

    And it looks as if it´s an indirect confirmation she is marring Adam. I love it (...poor Drissi though...).

    I really don't want the runner-up CAC contest entries to be made into action figures for MOTUC at this point. I hope they'll just have a dedicated page on Mattycollector.com where you can view all the entries in an image gallery.
    I try not to get tooooo excited whenever the Rock People are mentioned... but at least we're not hearing "These might be difficult to get to due to their needing to be 100% newly tooled figures..."
    Obviously they have a plan that'll be cost-effective with snap-on rock pieces for the standard male and female bucks or whatnot, but I hope they don't end up coming out very cheap-looking the way Vykron did!

    Queen Teela might look like Teela at the end of the DC Digital Comic about Battle Cat. At the very end, she wears a cape similar to King Randor and a lavender pantsuit.

    ...about the CAC entries, I still hope for an art book containing all the entries. That would be SUPER AWESOME!!!!
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Maybe with the new He-ro faction--maybe we'll possibly see a Queen Teela in Motuc . I hope that totally new characters for Motuc aren't off the table with this Queen Teela and the CAC runner ups statement

    I still don't get how Teela could be the Queen AND the new Sorceress of Grayskull, at the same time. Hence my question in the next series of questions.

    Wait for it: "Keep reading the bios."

    My guess:

    The Sorceress was "trapped" inside Castle Grayskull until the Eternia Towers reappeared, from than on she was able to leave the castle in her human form. So i guess it´s possible for Teela to be queen and sorceress at the same time similar to Queen Veena before King Grayskull died.

    Don't quite know how to feel about the Granita answer... I guess Mattel is aware of the Rock People popularity, but I assume that they also think that the 3 comet warriors would be expensive to make...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon

    POG: Veena
    SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze

    IMO I think rather than having anymore expensive 3-packs of similarly themed characters, I think the should just release them individually all during the same year (maybe during consecutive months back to back) and still as "bonus" items in addition to the standard monthly figures. This way it's not as big of a hit on the wallet all at once, and for anyone who subscribes but doesn't want some or any of them, they can probably sell them off more easily. Some people did have better luck selling their Star Sisters for better $$ by splitting them up and selling them separately rather than trying to unload the whole set. I think having 3 separate MOC figures would be an even easier sell.

    I honestly at this point in the "canon" do not want Teela to be anything more than just the Sorceress. I think this will make her grow into her own and possibly beyond. And considering what her responsibilities will be, I don't think she can afford to be anything other than the Sorceress.

    Now I am a fan of the He-Man/Adam/Teela thing, but I think just like in any relationship in life, there are times when two people build up to a point where it seems like the obvious will happen, but then something changes the field and either ruins what was or helps create something that much more. In the case of Teela; it's a what could've been but we have gone beyond that.

    Sorry guys, IMO....

    Veena was sorceress while married to King Grayskull while he was fighting dragons, Snake Men and Horde members.
    Now that Hsss and Hordak are vanquished, Teela has a much easier time.

    Yeah true, and you see where that eventually got him. But you gotta think something else will surface and others to follow, which can give us an bigger expansion of new stories, especially considering Adam will be galaxies away for an undetermined amount of time; things like that could possibly effect whatever relationship they have. What I wanted to illustrate was that just like in life not everything has to start off as friends and always end up lovers. I'm looking at the concept of both realizing that with the fate of the universe, things like that have to be put aside for their purposes and duties. I mean it don;t have to be this way but I think it would be something different and interesting. Kinda like that friend you always ad and thought maybe you guys could be more but for whatever reason the fates decide that exploring that possibility is better in idea and not action, so you remain friends, yet with slightly more strength to that particular bond. But this is just an idea, I mean I don't think everything has to follow a pattern???

    Well, they say absence makes the heart grow fonder . Perhaps while he was off saving the Universe and she was in Grayskull doing whatever the Sorceress does when Skeletor is no longer a threat they realized what they meant to each other and couldn't wait to get married upon his return. Hey, it could happen?!?!

    True. But I don't think Eternia will be at absolute peace, remember Jitsu is running things and with the likes of Gygor and Marzo and the various renegade villains we still have a planet going thru stuff.

    Hey look it's nothing against the Teela / Adam thing, I'm just looking at the possibilities considering He-man does encounter other females in NA and maybe even beyond during the Journey Home. And it would be sort of a romantic tragedy if they never link up, all for the fate of the Universe...

    The good news is they're doing something with the CAC entries! I don't think that means they'll be making figures of the runners-up but I don't necessarily want them anyway.

    The bad news is there still isn't any guidance about sharing custom versions of our entries. I guess I'll have to continue to wait to share mine until more info is revealed.

    What you're looking for - her name is "Drissi" from New Adventures. If the series had gone on, she was going to go back to Eternia with He-Man/Adam as possibly a love interest.

    We did not sell Snout Spout in January and as you may notice, the particular QC issues with Snout Spout or Goddess has not repeated itself. We solved both of those issues. Every MOTUC figure is painted and assembled by hand and their will ALWAYS be some QC.
    I dont recall a reissue of Goddess and Snout Spout with corrected assembly and a different material for the trunk... so how are these issues solved?

    Solved as in they never make a figure that particular way again. The Goddess means that they are more careful with the sonic welder and Snout Spout means that Mattel will never use foam on a MOTUC toy again. Granamyr's complaints probably mean that all figures will never come in parts again and will be fully assembled in big, expensive shipping packaging.

    My hope with the CAC figures is that they would let us see them, and then we as fans could vote on 1 that we would like to see as a figure. If they can't show us all of them, then maybe the top 50 or so and let us narrow it down from there. Just a thought.

    They didn't really answer what I was asking, maybe I worded it wrong. My point was they want 1000's of pictures of this, but even if they received that they wont come out with a replacement figure, ie they didn't redo GG or SS and send it to everybody that ordered one in the first place even though they know that there is a problem with the figure. I know a couple people for sure who didn't bother posting pictures for TG because it does nothing for the customer really.
