    Answers to WTFWTK 2.102!

    Mattel has once again provided answers to your questions.
    Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these!
    Check out their answers to your Round 102 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by darthdrew13.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!

    1. He-Dad: 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)

    To bottom line this one, we actually only ever had 2 “Three packs” planned, even in our original 2017 master road map. Both Star Sisters and FFM were put as three packs because it just didn't make sense to offer them as singles. If we had offered for example just Tall Star as a single monthly fig, fans would likely be upset over not "completing the team". Since both SS and FFM were teams of 3, it just made sense to offer them as 3 packs. But given the fan feedback that 3 packs are a bit too expensive, we won't be planning anymore at this time anyway. We only ever had 2 different three packs in the master plan and when we reorganized 2014 and 2015 based on rising costs, we did not add any more in.

    2. snakeeyes0217: 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, a cost saving directive or possibly due to shrinkage from the molding process?

    This is not a direct design choice. It is possible there is some tool molding shrinkage. We will pass this comment along to the QC group!

    3. darthdrew13: 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 or Keldor to give him a closer match to the Filmation cartoons? And is this something you would consider if a Filmation Skeletor is to be released in the future?

    This figure was not an homage to the Filmation Skeletor. It was a translation of his look from the comic he is packed in with. We do not have plans for a Filmation Skeletor at this time.

    4. Niki: In the beginning of the line there were some materials that hindered that articulation but those issues were fixed later with softer plastic. Then, Bubble Power She-Ra's skirt got side slits to fix She-Ra's mobility problem. But characters like Dekker, Netossa or Eternos King Randor are limited because their skirt pieces don´t have those slits even though they were released after Bubble Power She-Ra. Castaspella and other potential future releases may have this same problem. Why aren´t those slits standard procedure for all MOTUC figures wearing skirts or skirt pieces?

    There is no overarching rule that regulates this. Things like this are handled on a figure by figure basis by the Horsemen and design. We'll be happy to pass along your comments!

    5. Jeevesosiris: I am sure we are all expecting some amazing reveals at SDCC this year. Is there any one particular reveal that you think will blow us away? I'm not after names here. I'm just wondering if there is a jewel in the SDCC reveal crown.

    Yes, there is one figure in particular that will possibly overtake every other fig we have ever done. It is that cool.

    Wouldn't the FFM have been a FOUR pack? They are missing Sky High.

    YESS! Laser Light Spector! finally!

    Modulok would be cool, but better than a Horde Trooper (if shown) or my top want Blade (if shown) hmmm, we will see in one months time!
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    Ooooh glad my question got the answer i wanted. Let the speculation begin!

    It would have to be a figure with some serious WOW factor so I guess Modulock seems the most likely to me... unless they made Two-Bad even more amazing than I expect he will be.

    I guess that depends on what your criteria for FFM membership is. Sky High was not a model kit pilot, as there was no Wind Raider model. But he is a vehicle pilot on artwork. I'm with you, I think he needs to happen, but it makes perfect sense to me why he's no an official member of the FFM as yet.

    An I really hope he's talking about Modulok.

    I hope it's Modulock as well, though they could always swerve us and give us Multi-Bot, or better yet, Mega Beast (Modulock and Multi-Bot packaged together in one box).

    I want to give a big thanks to Scott for publicly recognizing this. My intent in asking this question was to ensure that both he and the team were aware that this, whatever the cause, is a problem we are noticing and it needs to be addressed. (I'm still trying to figure out a fix for Jitsu.)

    I'm thinking Modulok as well. With all the parts to make it work, I have to imagine it's a pretty crazy piece if that's what the surprise is.

    I would have preferred him in the 3-pack instead of Dittstroyer, personally. I don't know what the pilot of the evil Roton vehicle is doing teaming up with two heroic vehicle characters.

    Unlike the Star Sisters, the "Fighting Foe Men" were never a team of 3, until the Classics bio writers decided to make them a team.

    I had a similar feeling. When I thought about these three figures as the FFM, I wasn't crazy about them. Once I thought about them as the vehicle pilots - and being both good and bad - I liked them a lot more and put the figures with their respective factions.

    These may be the best answers to any matty Q and A I have ever seen. Concise, positive, informative, seemingly caring answers on all levels. Yay PR!

    Regarding the 5th answer, I'm thinking Modulok or Scorpia.
    20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
    Evil: Evilseed
    POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
    Horde: Imp / Vultak / Hunga
    POG: Veena
    SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
    Rock People: Granita
    NA: Darius / Sebrian

    That may be a good guess. I suspect they have He-Man 2.0 and Skeletor 2.0 on the way....

    5th question did not specify MOTUC, its possible this figure is not part of MOTUC? Especially if its not Scott who writes the answers.

    As far as the answer to the 5th question goes…I'm guessing either Modulok, Rio-Blast, Multibot or Extendar.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I really hope the "skirt slits" become standard for ALL figures, male or female, which wear a skirt or longer tunic. It's incredible that BP She-Ra was specially designed with the skirt slots to enable a fuller range of articulation, yet that same design concept has not been applied to all "skirted" figures after BP She-Ra, despite MOTUC being highly-articulated figures!

    As for the *that cool* figure, I will also guess Modulok. Didn't one of the 4H indicate that part of Mantenna was first sculpted for another figure? Maybe Mantenna's torso/hips were first designed for Modulok, but Mantenna was simply announced first? IF it was down to personal preference for a uniquely cool character, then I'd like to see Extendar or Madame Razz!

    Shadow Weaver has to have been the most blow away figure. In my memory she was the most requested in as much as the least likely of the most requested figures.

    Nothing, no reveal that I can think of would blow me away more than her.

    Mind you, I'm not saying she's the best figure, or even teh most impressive. But as a reveal, I can't imagine anything even getting close to being a bigger deal than her.

    Except Karg. Because he's the new her.

    But maybe I'm reading this wrong. If he's just saying it'll be the coolest figure, and cool alone blows us away, then yeah, many figures have blown me away just on how cool they were. So in a way that isnt hard to top.

    Modulock definately. Executed perfectly, he'd probably far and away be the coolest, most exciting, impressive figure ever.

    But really, I'm impressed by basicaly every figure, when they are new, and especially when we havent seen them since the vintage line, if at all. The new figures of never before seens or prototypes like Batros or Vikor have been the most exciting to me.

    but upon re-reading the statement, I'm pretty sure that he just means it's cool. This isnt that hard to do, so just "the coolest" could be nearly anyone left who had a gimmick.

    Heck, personally I'd be most impressed & excited by seeing Rotar, with both top & Legs. That executed perfectly would impress and excite me beyond anything to date.

    Except maybe Modulock done right. For some reason I dont think it'll be him. We'll see.
