** This is explained in the movie. Bill Mars' assistant tells Larry and Irwin that he wants the Gorgonite and Commando Elite toylines ready for sale in three months, and Irwin tries tell her that it takes six months in part because of product testing, but Larry assures her that three months is fine. In other words, production was rushed and corners were cut as a result.

** Hazard wants to keep the chain of command in-tact and not share authority; if nothing else, it is more efficient that way. And TheCanBeOnlyOne.

* If the Gorgonites were intended to be non-violent and educational, why do some of them have violent names like Punch-It and Slamfist?

** I thought it was said by her brother "they buy you those stupid Gwendy dolls". So her parents keep buying them and she's too polite to say she doesn't like them.

* What is the actual reason for the Commando Elite to be fighting the Gorgonites? Other then FantasticRacism, we're never given a motivation. Considering the Gorgonites are programmed to be meek and only searching for their homeland of Gorgon, what exactly caused this "war" to happen, lore wise? Did the Gorgonite Ship crash and kill all of the Commando's families?

** Same for the Gorgonites themselves. We are to assume that they reach Gorgon, so do they just "live" in the forest forever? I know that this involves thinking far more about this movie than anyone should but it's just a weird little quirk bugging this troper.

* So let's say that the Commando Elite actually succeeded in destroying the Gorgonites. What would happen next? Since that's what their programmed to do, would they simply shut down or would they remain sentient and start looking for other Gorgonite toys to fight?

** It probably wasn't extensive testing. They probably did little more than test the voice activation and articulation before turning them off and pushing production. Most of the issues were from long term activation. It's kind of like testing a device for functionality but not thinking to test for continuous or repetitive use.
