    WTFWTK 2.98 - Ask your questions here!

    Rules for What The Fans Want To Know:
    • Each user is limited to 1 question per Q&A.
    • Posts that repeat questions from other Q&As or from earlier in this thread, or posts that contain multiple questions, will be deleted and the offending user will no longer be permitted to participate in that particular Q&A. So check to see if your question has been asked and help everyone out!
      Be sure to check the posts in this thread before you, as well as previous Q&A sessions!
    • This is for question submission only; not discussion. Please save that for discussion threads, and Q&A answer threads.
    • We will start a new Q&A thread when it is time for more questions, approximately every 2 weeks. So please don't start new Q&A threads.

    We will pick up to 5 questions we feel might get answers at that time. Please do not take offense to your question not being asked.
    Also, we also edit questions to make them more concise, to be more specific, etc. Please take no offense to this either, as it's only meant to help.
    It's nothing personal.

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

    This past round of questions were selected by Niki.
    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. Barbecue17: 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?

    2. MaxGoof: Although it's been stated that Kowl is considered a high priority to be released in MOTUC, 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?

    3. Sailoruranus: 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?

    4. Snakeeyes0217: I feel that Jitsu's head is disproportionately small. Was it sculpted that small by the Horsemen or does it suffer from production shrink?

    5. Niki: 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?

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

    So ask those questions!

    Typically when someone asks asks a question about how a unique character might be approached in Classics (for instance if Dragstor might have a unique torso with an actual wheel or a piece of armor that simply looks like a wheel) we are generally told there has been no discussion on the character yet. Since we have been told that the new roadmap is for the majority of vintage characters to be released by the end of 2015 and we are told that most figures take over a year to plan, does this mean that the majority of remaining vintage MOTU figures have at least been discussed as to how their unique features (Rio Blasts's guns, Blast Attack's split) might be appraoched in Classics?

    Can you offer some insight as to the thought process behind creating Mantenna? For example, there was a lot of fan discussion about whether Mantenna would have 4 legs or two groups of 2 legs.

    Now that the focus for 2014-2015 is on vintage and important animated characters, does someone like Eldor fall into that category or is he considered a post 2015 character?

    Since the Spell of Separation dissolved all Snake-Men and their descendants, what is the fate of the Palace Guard with a snake face? Was he a necessary casualty or was he once a human turned by the Serpent's Ring and thus still alive, like Mekaneck?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    When asked if Castle Grayskull will be able to fit figures properly on the floors without them being too cramped in between the different floors, you have stated that there is enough room to fit the 6" figures, however, that phrasing seems to go back to another discussion of the actual height of the figures. You have stated many times in regarding the MOTUC figures as being 6" figures, yet fans have been saying for years that these figures are 7". I finally decided to measure my He-Man figure with a 12 inch ruler and He-Man is just under 7" (more like 6.9"). Then you have a figure like Teela who is definintely taller than most MOTUC figures. Why is it to this day that you still consider the MOTUC figures as being only 6" tall and how can we be sure that will be enough head room in this 6" Castle Grayskull playset for figures that are a smidget under 7" tall?
