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

    This past round of questions were selected by DO4M.
    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. facet: Will we ever see the Council of Elders as figures or learn more about them in the MOTUC bios?

    2. tenno: Will Mattel or Classic Media ever offer the old books, comics or mini-comics via a digital format for one of the standard e-readers? I haven't heard anything about the old books in a long time and would like to know where they stand in Mattel's thoughts.

    3. zodak74: Could the clip on Castaspella's shield be switched before she goes into production? The shields only snap on the left wrist of the female figures. But Castaspella's left hand is the open spell-casting hand. It would be great if the shield snapped on her right arm so she can raise her left arm and display the spell effect.

    4. replikor: Would you confirm that plans are being put in place to try and make a Grayskull add-on pack that would include a 3D sculpted dungeon?

    5. DO4M: Speaking of Grayskull add-on packs, could we get MOTUC versions of the weapons from the 200X Castle Grayskull?

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

    So ask those questions!

    On the fan vote for which characters will appear on the Castle Grayskull box there is a disclaimer that basically says Mattel reserves the right to choose the characters under unforeseen circumstances. What might some of those circumstances be? If the winners of the context somehow managed to be Illumina, Uncle Montork, Tung Lashor, Mosquitor, and Detective Lubic, would Mattel not honor those choices in order to ensure that He-Man and Skeletor were on the box?

    Although it's been stated that Kowl is considered a high priority to be released in MOTU Classics, Loo-Kee never seems to be mentioned. As Loo-Kee is a legendary vintage figure that few can afford, appears in every episode of She-Ra and is the central character of several episodes, is Loo-Kee a character Mattel considers a priority (despite the unique tooling)? Also, given Loo-Kee's role in the POP universe, wouldn't it be cool if he was "hidden" in the same manner as Prince Adam?

Is this a weapon for one of the new characters created for the second new mini comic, or on the CG box art voting list in noticed a character name i never heard before, Golden Rod, is that him.

    How does the Bat Jet Pak accessory shown with Castle Grayskull at NYTF work with a figure? Is it armor like Stratos' that a figure wears, or more like a weapon that a figure holds on to? We were never shown a figure utilizing it during ToyFair.

    He's talking about the glowing Moss Man mace in the first panel. Im assuming it belongs to the guy with the red stripe on his back.

    In 2012, no-one (or possibly very few ppl) would have guessed that Vykron was going to be the SDCC exclusive. For SDCC 2013, does Mattel intend to go down the same path (in terms of the SDCC exclusive being a concept or obscure character) or more 'mainstream' (like SDCC 2010 with Orko & Prince Adam)?

    Word has it that not all of the NA characters will be made into classics (especially the galactic protectors) will we at least get a bio for everyone so we can have a complete 'classics' story??

    Since the sales of the Wind Raider has left Mattel under confident to release another vehicle is there anything we can do to prove to Mattel were ready for another vehicle? Or is there a way that it could be included in a subscription instead of a 3 pack or large figure?
    What are your thoughts on this subject. Is this something NECA could produce like the Staction Figures?

    There is no question that NA has gotten the least amount of love/attention in this line. Any chance we could get a jetlag subscription to fill out the ranks with some of the cartoon characters?

    So thrilled at the amount of female figures in close proximity to one another - Octavia, Castaspella and Shokoti - wow! Can you confirm if there's another (as yet unrevealed) female to come out of the six remaining slots in 2013? (three Filmation, three from the sub, including the two-pack)

    Regarding future weapons packs:

    We know that in motu is common tho have weapons in fancy colors, Is it possible to take in consideration a weapons pack with elements in realistic colors? For example, Jitsu weapons, Spikor's Club, Mosquitor's rifle, or Stinkor's rifle. Thank you!

    Why is Jitsu's head disproportionately small? Was it sculpted that small by the Horsemen or does it suffer from production shrink?

    Could you provide some insight as to the decision making process behind Mantenna? Specifically, what were people's thoughts regarding 4 seperate legs versus 2 fused legs?

    Now considering what happened at STROB-OUT and bear with me I understand there was only a very limited amount; he will still be available at the upcoming Cons, my question does concern the topic of the subscription:

    For the most part the majority of people who have a subscription are in this for it all. And yet there always seems to be an item or product that is always offered outside this sub. Now considering I get the sub to get everything without hassle, with the key point EVERYTHING (and before it's stated that the reason for this are the items are added because and when extra funds are loosened or the yearly skus are set up in such way), I think that as a sub holder EVERYTHING should be provided to these said sub commitments we as fans have made to this line. As we continue to commit without ever knowing what we getting regardless if it's desirable, QC issues, etc.

    Now I am not saying Early Access is a failure because due to the quantity and circumstance of Strobo, the argument is flawed... BUT it's a benefit that so far is ehhhh ok only. As it only offers prior stock, that if you have been a subber, you already have the items being re-offered.

    QUESTION: Why as a subscriber I cannot be offered everything that is offered in this line including out of sales products like SDCC / Con exclusive*, weapon packs, or anything else?

    It should be an option offered to me to decide yes or no to considering I seemingly make a commitment for the year and that would say that I want everything that is released for the year. And if I don't, considering I have a subscription page (where I can update info) I should be able to choose or refuse this. Just a thought.

    *Now before you say well... "this is a reward for those who attend these events", fair enough. But I think as a benefit of purchasing a sub I think we should get just a little more than one sub exclusive and Early Access. And I hope you won't use the "you are getting figures that won't make it to DOS; cause that argument is invalid since you are only producing the amount per sub only and not like your previous amounts.

    When Mattel got the FILMATION rights to make MOTUC figures of characters FILMATION owned it was said they have JETLAG rights as well.

    But since than no mentioning again. We have a FILMATION sub now, which is amazing and i think a lot of people appreciate that. Still no original JETLAG character like Crita, Master Sebrian or Drissi has been announced. I´m excluding Mara here because it was said before that she is part of the prototypes now which are already considered. As far as i understood.

    Will there be an original JETLAG character included in the new roadmap especially since the FILMATION sub made some room again?
    *Peekablue *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither
