Matty from MattyCollector.com and ToyGuru, have replied with the answers to our latest round of questions that AFi readers have posted in our forums.
Q1. If the JLU Lobo reach your sales expectations, can you give us a hint us on which oversized figure might follow him on matty? Or what might be one YOU’D like to see? And IF Lobo does well how often should we expect to get JLU oversized figures? bi monthly? quarterly maybe?
A1. If Lobo does well there is a chance we could do a few more in the near future. As to which figures those are, that is a tight secret!
Q2. MOTUC, For those of us attending the con this year, do you have any info on how the exclusives will be sold @ your booth? Last year it was first come first serve, and sold out by Friday. The year before it was first come first serve but rations were sold each day. The year before raffle tickets were distributed to each attendee. What will it be this year so we’re prepared?
A2. We are still working on the exact details including looking into a presale option. What we do know for sure is there will be an allotment each day; sales on Wednesday and Thursday will be restricted to attendees only until noon, no professionals or exhibitors may buy at this time. As for tickets and possible pre-sales, we are still working at this, but are committed to making as smooth of a sale process as possible!
Q3. Any plans for new civilian characters for JLU? Any plans for more TNBA Batman villain 3 packs or 6 packs for JLU?
A3. We are looking into more civilians but nothing to announce yet. Yes, also looking into more Batman characters too.
Q4. I have quite a lot of DCUC, DCIH and JLU figures now. I have almost every character I could ever want. What I don’t have is a good way to store them. How about making some decent collector’s cases so our figures don’t end up rubbing against each other and wearing the paint off or succumbing to plastic melt?
A4. This is something we are always looking into but nothing to confirm quite yet. A lot of collectors have their own ways to store figures, we’ve seen some great suggestions on the fan boards!
Q5. Last year you announced a head of time how many new characters/waves you’d be revealing at SDCC for DCUC, Ghostbusters and MOTUC. Will you be announcing those numbers ahead of time this year?
A5. These things are always in flux, but we will have at least two DCUC waves and a handful of new GB and MOTUC characters!
The next round of questions have already been turned in, but if you want to get in on the NEXT round we need your questions by June 10th. Remember they can be about any Mattel product including MOTUC, Ghostbusters and Cars. You can submit new questions in this thread.
