i don´t know what to say.
I do get the feeling the questions were´t answered respectfully or the answer were´t thought through…either way not good if you ask me.

Bould-or, sounds a lot like Boulder (from Tonka's Rock Lords). If there was only a Rock Lords Classics line, my heart would be complete.
Pebblass. I actually don't mind it, it's corny and has a terrible pun quality.
As for Castle Grayskull, people, ignore the bios! They're pretty terrible. Don't waste your time fretting over them. MOTU has no real canon, and never will. The MOTUC bios were only written to justify more figures. Nothing more, nothing less. I highly doubt Random House is going to ask Mattel to create a novel out of these stories.
The only canon that matters is your own at this point (and well, whatever was written during the original line, at least I feel so, even those 80's ones don't agree much with each other).
*fights urge to start "SHOW SUPPORT FOR PEBBLE ASS" thread in the character support forum*
I do feel bad for those that want new MOTU comics and end up ultimately disappointed.
Just make up your own canon, that's my best advice. We actually understand the mythos, brand, and characters. Unless you get a real long-time and knowlegeable fan to write and draw these new comics/stories, I see no hope for new MOTU adventures that will please us.
Castle Grayskull no longer exists?????
Well, that's cool with me. I can easily play that canon when I cancel my Grayskull order for lack of size. Castle Grayskull will not exist in my house.
Keep The "Classicized" 200x Heads in MOTUC!
No Thundercats Sub For Me Due To The 200x King Hsss Torso fiasco!
Sit down and think it through?
Scott drops a bomb out of nowhere and you want us to stay calm and think it through?
ok. I'll give it a try.
wait. didn't someone in MYP have a dream/vision that the castle crumbled because of King Hisssssssssssssssss? wasn't it ZodaK?
the true reason why Castle Grayskull no longer exists when Teela is Queen is because she tells her husband, King He-Man, that "it would look better over there". However he throws it a bit too hard and it ends up in orbit
Really? TG had to wipe Grayskull out of existence? Grayskull's the cornerstone of the whole mythos for me, even more than He-man.
Personally, I don't want my own cannon. I don't want to take my toys home and play by myself.
I didn't think my opinion could get even lower, but it has. What's next? Does Spector wake up and realize that all of MOTU was a dream, a world of his creation?
And as far as the answer about Teela's appearance is concerned, I wish TG would give a straight answer. Sometimes Mattel plays a part in the process, sometimes it doesn't. The determining factor, I think, is whether or not Mattel's involvement betters or worsens Mattel's image.
wow killing of castle grayskull interesting I guess this is were it leads to NA-heman and the reason for the new power sword ? becasue grayskull is no more he still has to be able to say by the power of grayskull so I guess they made some way for that power to be stored in the sword. I take its its gonna be something like this. the castle has fallen, He-man and queen Teela have Dare son of He-man. once he is old enough Dare becomes the protector of Eternia while He-man gets the call to join the Galactic Guardians.
It probably becomes redundant when the power gets transferred to Adam directly before he flies off into space.
As someone said before, the idea of Grayskull being destroyed is not new. It's from NA Bible, but these NA events are supposed to happen 1 million years in the future, so thinking of "Grayskull's ruins" is not so blunt in that context.
In the MOTUC canon, however, this is happening presumably in just a few decades. So yes, it is just as bad as Duncan and Stratos being killed.
I understand that the bios and canon are just a plus for MOTUC, collected or composed with no particular care to become a serious source for MOTU history (since we are permanently encouraged to build our own canon), but I would love to have serious material for this franchise some day, in the form of a novel may be, done professionally by a writer (opposed to being just collected from existing material and trying to tie the stories in a rush working some extra hours till late night). The franchise would benefit from a model like the one used in the Star Wars franchise, whose mythos are now expanded and detailed through novels... the MOTU universe is as rich as that.
As much as i like having a MotU Fan at the helm, by now i have seen the danger of this. Toygurus love for all things MotU (and that is fine) but it is really a problem.
He loves it so much, that he seems blinded by this. He seems to think that now that he has some degree of creative control he has to use this influence to publish his own fanfiction as a de facto MotU canon, based on great ideas other Motu Fans (who respected the franchise much more, if remembered correctly) established a few years past.
The old saying comes to mind: with great power comes great responsibility. So please TG use this power wisely.Put some distance between your inner child and the guy writing the stories. Stop ruining the franchise with mindless killing and/or destruction for dramatic effects. This is not good story telling. This is childsplay. And that is how most of the bios and stories read nowadays (looking at both Mattel and DC at this point).
Oh and by the way:
The worst thing in this matter: mentioning the "departure" of Grayskull in a WTFWTK. We are talking Grayskull for Eldors sake. If this Icon of Power has to go (for whatever sick reasoning) make it epic. Make it meaningfull. Make it matter. Not in a throwaway sentence.
It will probably be themed in the next bios or minicomic but at this point i am sad to say i´d rather have no further "official" MotU Stories than what is coming out of MotU Headquarters lately. I will largely ignore it, but the biggest problem remains: it will forever remain "out there"...
I dont see any of these answers being a big deal. Especially weird the question about Teela's DC comics uniform. Just standard thing in fictional depictions of ladies. I direct you to Red Sonja comic good sir. Logic has no place in it.
I rather like the design, which they were banking on I'm sure, and I would like equally as well more clothes. It doesnt matter either way. Since the characters can wear other outfits like normal beings, it's not even like it is something permanant.
As for Grayskull eventually being destroyed or whatever, sure why not? After a Second Ultimate Battleground, or some big huge deal, perhaps it's finally just too big a target and dissapears.
Until something is said more definatively I assumed that Once Teela became Sorceress and Queen, King He-Man and the Queen Sorceress would rule from Grayskull. I see no reason to alter my view. Plus I assume that Teela as Queen and Sorceress would not be limited by location because things had "come to a head" sort to speak and there was no longer any need for whatever that rule was for.
