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. Mattel, Can you fix the scale on the teenage male heroes for DCUC and DCIH? Robin,Kid Flash and Beast Boy look like they are 12.The teenage female bodies are perfect, but the males are way to short. The 1st Robin you did in the DC Superheroes line was perfect. If you would have used the current teenage male scale for Zan, he would have been looking at Jayna’s belly button. I am glad you used an adult size scale model for Zan instead.
Right now when I pose my Titans together, Starfire,Cyborg and Nightwing look like they are baby sitting a bunch of 12 year old’s dressed up like Robin,Kid Flash and Beast Boy.lol Same for the DCIH line, Ravager,Raven,Supergirl,Wondergirl who are on the same Titans team, look way taller then Robin. He looks like he is 10 years old in that line.
A1: We will certainly take this into consideration as we move forward! Good suggestion.
Q2. How is that the Mattycollector JLU 4 packs have not sold enough units to continue when they are all sold out? Is it really the speed of the sales that is more important than the units moved?
A2: We can not comment on production runs or amount sold but, needless to say, none of the packs performed well enough to keep the SKU going.
Q3. What are the chances of seeming some DCUC re-releases for characters in the old Super Powers line in with their classic Super Powers paint jobs? Characters like Penguin, Red Tornado and Kalibak as well as more SP accurate versions of Mr. Freeze, Lex Luthor, Robin and Orion?
A3: This is something we’d love to tackle and a great way to refresh characters for a new release.
Q4. With the reveal of the Nightwing/Batgirl/Penguin 3 pack in JLU, alot of fans are excited about those characters, but disappointed in the sculpts. Is it too late to alter this pack in any way so they are more in line with the typical JLU line? They just don’t fit in.
Also, are more figures planned using any of these sculpts? Please no! While we applaud the intention to get these characters out, I think we’d rather have a smaller wave and have them done correctly than cheaply..
A4: This pack is already in production. We can not make any more changes. We will take your comments into consideration for future packs however!
Q5. Since wave 14 is the WM exclusive wave and not 15 how will this affect future DCUC waves? Does this mean wave 15 will be out before the WM wave? Or does it mean that the WM wave will be out earlier this year?
A5: Ideally Wave 14 will ship before Wave 15.
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 March 12th. Remember they can be about any Mattel product including MOTUC, Ghostbusters and Cars. You can submit new questions in this thread.
