    WTFWTK 2.102 - 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 facet.
    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: Who are the 2 snakemen on page 2/3 of the third new mini-comic, directly to the right of Blast-Attak?

    2. Niki: The original two vintage Comet Warriors who were chosen to be the SDCC 2013 MOTUC exclusive have opened up another new fraction with in MOTUC. In the mini-comic "Escape From The Slime Pit" two others were featured. A yellow/orange/pink female and a green/silver/blue male. What are their names?

    3. Shokoti's Slave: How is it possible for Teela to become both the Queen of Eternia as well as the new Sorceress of Grayskull? Her mother had to sever all ties like relationships in order to protect the power inside of Grayskull. How can Teela not have to do the same? She can't exactly protect Grayskull from the Royal Palace.

    4. King Tamusk: You've said before that Eldor is special, because he was a prototype and not a concept character. And you've already released He-Ro and the Star Sisters which are other prototypes. What is the importance of remaining prototype characters like Evil Robot, Darius, and Mara? Are they characters we will see in 2014/2015, or are they ones that will likely be held until 2016?

    5. jibernish: Can you tell us about the decision making process that went into making Teela so sexually provocative looking in the new DC Comics? Was it Mattel's idea or DC's idea? Was it approved? Teela has never had super powers like many MOTU characters. Her formidability comes from her inner strength and iron will. Seeing her dress this way, especially to go into battle, is in direct opposition to one of her most prominent character traits. It's an especially interesting decision given that He-Man, a warrior with exponentially greater physical powers and less need for body armor, has been sheathed head to toe in armor.

    So ask those questions!

    When can we expect a Pre-Order for the Battle Ram?? The sculpting and design is already complete! Even though the Wind Raider has not completely sold out (a complete mystery to me as it is incredibly awesome!!), a pre-order would ensure that the Battle Ram would only be made if enough collectors bought it up front to get it to production. The success of the Castle Grayskull pre-order should demonstrate that this kind of offering will work

    Have any additional plans been made in regards to letting the fans and collectors see the non-winning entries of the Create-A-Character contest?

    One of the best things in MOTUC is the possibility to finally pose the figures in different and dynamic poses because of their great articulation.
    In the beginning of the line there were some materials that hindered that articulation but those issues were fixed same with She-Ras skirt for Bubble Power She-Ra her skirt got slits at the sides and now we can pose her and make her ride Swiftwind.

    Characters like Dekker, Netossa or Eternos King Randor are limited because their skirt pieces donīt have those slits even though they were released after Bubble Power She-Ra and there is Castaspella on her way who will most likely have similar limitations since she doesīt have those slits as well.

    And there are a few more characters in MOTU/POP/NA who wear skirts or skirt pieces like Peekablue, King Miro, Entrapta or Na Adam and a lot of others so why arenīt those slits standard procedure for all MOTUC figures wearing skirts or skirt pieces?

    The Skeletor figure released through Toys R Us in the 2-pack seems to be an homage to the Filmation version of the character. Was there any discussion on swapping out his foot mold with someone like Stratos, Keldor, or maybe Faker (He-Man mold) to give him a closer match to the Filmation cartoons? (looks like he's wearing socks) Is this something you would consider if a Filmation Skeletor is to be released in the future?
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    There seems to be a trend with humanoid figures having smaller heads this year (Jitsu, King He-Man, GP He-Man). Is this a stylistic choice on the part of the horsemen or a cost saving directive?

    It was said that there will be no more 3 packs in the sub. Is there still the possibility of them being offered outside the sub when it makes sense to have them? (movie 3 pack or smaller figures, that kinda thing)

    Will Mattel ever retool the Trap-Jaw hand so that it can actually hold a weapon rather than being completely useless as with the case of Karatti?

    I am sure we are all expecting some amazing reveals at SDCC this year - but is there any one particular reveal that you think will blow us away? Not after names here, just wondering if there was a jewel in the SDCC reveal crown?
