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. Was there a reason why in the TRU exclusive DCUC vs. MOTU that Superman was exactly the same as the previous release? He was not even given a metallic color treatment to make him a little different, while He-Man got a total repaint. Why not release He-Man exactly as he was originally before as well?
A1. We understand fans want many versions of their favorite figures, but in this case we wanted a comic accurate Superman to reflect the pack-in comic.
Q2. Is there any chance of a Major Matt Mason line? Any chance it will be 3 3/4"? Any chance of any of the vehicles or other accessories? I would love to see the original figures and accessories in a smaller more managable scale as I had both growing up.
A2. We are big big fans of Major Matt Mason but can’t comment on the development of any unannounced toy lines!
Q3. Is there any chance of a JLU Robin? Robin would likely be a very popular figure (especially if its a new figure instead of the non-JLU Tim Drake figure many of us already own) and could be repainted in several different costumes to allow for multiple releases – Original outfit, Earth-2 outfit, Batman the Animated Series outfit, etc.
A3. Now that we can have access to non-show characters in JLU–style, Dick Grayson Robin is certainly on the table.
Q4. How come ALL my local Targets are recieving case mixes with parts of waves 6,7 and 8 ? (we’re already on wave 12, that’s 5 waves behind) these cases are really clogging the pegs. Will Target be getting new DCUC anytime soon ? Will they ever catch back up?
A4. We are working with Target to get newer stock on shelves. It is one of our top priorities.
Q5. Ok so we know we will not get a DCU weapons pack but any chance of us getting Gordon with the Bat signal that saw only a foriegn release. I know a lot of collectors would love to have the Bat-signal. Maybe next years SDCC could be Comm. Gordon with a Bat signal two pack ?
A5. We do still have the Bat Signal tool and would love to find a way to get it out. It just takes the right configuration since it is a bit too large to include with a standard figure.
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 April 28th. Remember they can be about any Mattel product including MOTUC, Ghostbusters and Cars. You can submit new questions in this thread.
