    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 past round of questions were selected by Jeevesosiris.
    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. No-ah: Scott was quoted as saying that if Castle Grayskull did well, the Battle Ram might be the next pre-order. Also, when asked if more vehicles were on the way, Scott told the fans more than once to buy more Wind Raiders if we want more vehicles. But now, after the Wind Raider has sold out, Scott has been quoted saying that because the Wind Raider took so long to sell out, the ship may have sailed for other large vehicles like the Battle Ram, which contradicts what we were told before. Since a pre-order only goes through if we hit the number necessary and you've already paid to design and create the tooled prototype, a pre-order would appear to be a no-risk situation. Is the Battle Ram pre-order still a possibility?

    2. Jeevesosiris: In a recent question to Mattel we were told that "Castle Grayskull does not even exist at the time Teela is queen and Sorceress simultaneously." I know that more details of this may appear in a future bio, but to ease the minds of those people who are worried that Castle Grayskull has lost some of its importance in the mythos because of this, will you please clarify what was meant by your statement? Is Castle Grayskull no longer standing? Or has the power within gone with He-man on his New Adventures?

    3. Shokoti's Slave: So far we know of Veena, Kodak Ungor and Teela'Na. In all the centuries between the first and last Guardian, has there ever been a male Guardian of Castle Grayskull in the MOTUC mythos? A Sorcerer of Grayskull, so to speak?

    4. Dynamo Of Eternia: Can the Early Access sales pages be updated to work in a manner that is more like the combined sales page from general sale on the 15th of each month? The general combined sales page is set up so that a quantity can be put in the box next to each time listed and the one "add to cart" button appears at the bottom, which adds ALL of the items to the cart all at the same time. But with Early Access, each item has its own separate "add to cart" button with no quantity box. As a result, when one the "add to cart" button is pressed for one item, you are sent to the cart page. It defaults to a quantity of 1, so that has to be manually changed. But the bigger problem is that you then have to navigate back to the early access page to add a different item, further slowing down the checkout process. This slower process can result in missing out on items. I hope this can be changed before the SDCC items go up for sale via Early Access, as I'm sure a lot of people will want more than 1 of multiple items.

    5. facet: Scott, will you please tell us all of the new characters on pages 2 and 3 of the third new mini comic? By this I mean any character that was created by you and your staff, that didn't have an action figure or previously existing media associated with it. Then, also show us exactly where they are in that 2 page spread by either circling them in a JPG and attaching their name or something similar. Thanks!

    So ask those questions!

    Given that the Grayskull stands have sold out and that the Snake Mountain stands are apparently selling well, has there been any consideration to producing stands representative of the Evil Horde, ie. Fright Zone stands?

    With the recent poll regarding the DC MOTU comic figures, would it be possible to sell them in the DC Unlimited line at retail? You could easily make them chase figures much like Hasbro does with their Legends line. For example make He-Man the chase for a Superman and so on. I would love these figures and would truly enjoy seeing my favorite heroes and villains on store pegs again.

    It's been said before that 2014 and 2015 - if they both go through - will finish off many of the vintage figures from MOTU, POP, and NA. Given this, once we know the 2014 line-up, will it be relatively easy to figure out the 2015 line-up? For example, if Rio Blast does not come out in 2014, then can we expect him in 2015?

    In the past there have been "homage" figures from the Filmation cartoons, NA cartoons, MYP cartoons, MOTU mini-comics and possibly the DC vintage comics. Will there be more of these homage figures in the future since the 2014/2015 road map seems to be focused on vintage figure re-makes?
    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!.

    Can we start getting extra heads for previously released characters packed in with new figures that are light on accessories please (i.e. Alcala Skeletor head, Zodak unmasked head etc)?

    Here's some ideas -

    200X style Clawful, 200X Buzz off, Blue vintage style Merman, battle damaged Faker, 200X Grizzlor, white Horde Prime, acid burned Keldor, 200X Rattlor, more alt Snakemen, generic Avian, maybe even a snake Mekanek head and neck.

    Will the Filmation sub figures have any indication on the package that they are part of this sub-line? Perhaps a new logo a sticker or a yellow burst like we saw on the 30th anniversary figures?
