Only 4 QnAs posted, and Mattel is shown to be caught blatantly lying TWICE.

Good job, Matty!

Peace,

Chip

How so, Chip? I'm not seeing it.

At least we found out we're getting one wave of DCUC and 4 new MOTUC figures at Toyfair.

Not a bad start.

- Saying they haven't announced the 2nd figure in the Joker 2-pack, yet they were the ones that "announced" it as Harley in a previous QnA.

- Swearing up and down there were no "themed" waves, even going so far as to say Wave 17 isn't really "themed"...then saying in one of the new QnAs that the "themed" waves are really "our way of shaking things up" or whatever.

Peace,

Chip

You're surprised?! I'm surprised there are so FEW inconsistencies!

You can always rely on Matty to be unreliable.

These have become so useless to me.

I can write them myself.

"Sorry, we cannot comment on that information"

"stay tuned"

"if there's enough fan demand"

"vote with your wallets!"

"JLU has a loud but not numerous fan base"

"nothing planned at this time"

"Will keep that in mind for the future"

"will pass that idea on to the brand/packaging/sculpting/distribution/paint department/lady who brings lunch."

"sorry we cannot comment on unannounced figures"

Really? Should I go on. These things are like flipping Mad Libs. Just insert the excuse.

And again. So far, one JLU question. Zero answers.

Chip: I can't believe you aren't excited for the Super Powers stands (or talking about it at least).

Noisy: Thanks again for doing this thread each time.

I am! I have around 23 of them so far and I'm looking forward to picking up another two dozen. It is good news. :)

Peace,

Chip

I'd like to have about 50 total, for all of the Super Powers and theoretical Super Powers figures that were to be released. So if it's 25 for $12, I'll bite.

I still don't understand what Mattel was trying to say with that Wun-Dar answer.

Hey... Maybe Rick James knows!

Yeah!!!

Let's ask RICK JAMES!!!

Hey, Rick!!!

Do you know what Mattel was trying to say??!?!?

So... Two JLU questions so far. One decent response and one not so.

Seibertron.com has the right idea. They got fed up with Hasbro's crappy answers and just started using their insider knowledge to answer them themselves.

Well, no one really wanted to hear that (or believed it) anyway - so why continue to beat on that same drum?

Can someone repost the JLU questions here or at least point out what Q&A session that they're in?
