Thanks to that fan for their help!
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?
Really this is just a legal requirement for most polls and contests regardless of brand. We don't have plans to purposely override the fan vote! Not something deeper than that.
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?
Loo-Kee is also a figure we'd love to get to. He was prominent in the animated series and had a vintage figure! But no plans now to announce.
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?
No plans right now. We do want to get to more NA figures but we don't have a dedicate Jet Lag sub planned at this time.
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?
No, it was not shrunk down.
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?
We certainly hope to get to some Jet Lag figures in time. Just because you haven't seen one yet doesn't mean more are not coming down the road!
