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 47 questions!
This round of questions were selected by Scorpia,
and proofed against old Q&As by Uncle Montork.
Thanks to them for their help!
While you said you currently can't discuss any figures pass King Hsss, it was previously stated that the Faceless One was tentatively scheduled to be released in May 2011. Is that still the case?
Actually, no. He slipped out a month or more. He had more development than expected and the Horsemen asked us to swap him for another character in the 2011 line-up who would be easier to do.
You have revealed that the next NA figure will be a Galactic Guardian. Will you say whether or not this figure is one of the 4 A-List Variants we get in a year, or is he one of the regular 12 monthly figures?
What you are really asking is if NA He-Man is coming later this year due to the parts he shares with Bow. For that, you will need to wait and see!
After the Octavia answer in the latest round of questions, would this also mean Dylamug, who appears in the Tomart catalogue, is also off limits?
Correct. Characters who first appeared in Filmation without also appearing in the 200X line/show are not available in the current line (even if Mattel employees had a hand in their creation).
4. Count Marzo:
Any idea on what type of packaging can we expect the Weapons Rack and other "dioramas" to come in?
It will be on a card similar to the Weapon Pak.
Would you ever consider including up-and-coming figures on the reverse of packaging? (ie, Bow and King Hsss on Buzz Off's cardback, the April figure on Vikor's cardback, etc). I think it would serve as a good means of promotion and whet fans' appetites for future releases in addition to the online and convention figure reveals.
It would, except we usually don’t have those figures ready by the time a package is released.
