Okay, AFi submits questions for Mattel's action figure lines on a regular basis. This pretty much covers anything that Mattel does. Except for a few other brands...Hot Wheels, Imaginext, even Barbie. In the past, when certain questions pertaining to other Mattel brands that happen to cross over with AFi member interests(such as Batmobile Hot Wheels, for example) are answered by Mattel, they say something to the effect of, 'Oh, that's another brand manager's deal, and we can't answer for them/we don't know.' That's fine and all, but it still leaves AFi without a way to submit questions for other lines outside the normal scope of things.

Would it be too difficult to have AFi and Mattel to connect the right persons together to make something like this a reality? To include other non-action figure questions in with the standard Q+A's? I don't care too much for Imaginext or Barbie, but other AFi'ers certainly do. Mattel happens to make a few DCU related Hot Wheels items on a semi-regular basis, not to mention other cool items like the A-Team van, the Back to the Future Time Machine and the Knight Industries Two Thousand Hot Wheels cars. I only found out about K.I.T.T. because I was scouring the internet last year to see if Mattel was inserting more pop culture cars into the Hot Wheels line. Or even a Back to the Future II version or a Ghostbusters Ecto 1A?

Thanks for your time!

A follow-up...

The other day, I ventured into the Hot Wheels section of the local Walmart and discovered a Batman sub-set. I had no idea it even existed until I saw them in stores. If the Mattel Q+A's were expanded to include such items, it would help a lot of us here on AFi who would be interested in such crossover Hot Wheels and other non-action figure related items.

Thanks!
