Well, for fear of damaging my reputation on a night as important as Halloween, yes I'm home and not doing anything cool. Those IAT checklists don't update themselves... :?

On the bright side, I was around to catch the newest Ask Matty questions as well as scope out the other sites (most of which are all surely off having more fun than me). I'll do a big check to roundup the "cool kids" answers tomorrow morning. :P :wink:


IAT - http://www.itsalltrue.net/?p=15095

Fwoosh - http://thefwoosh.com/2011/10/ask-matty-11111

MOTUCFigs - http://www.motucfigures.com/2011/10/ask ... -2011.html

AFI - http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main ... r-1st-2011

Two more from this morning:

Elkk - http://www.elkkthunderstoyroom.com/2011 ... vered.html

PCN - http://popculturenetwork.com/article.ph ... 1083614260

Five more from this evening:

IH - http://www.infinitehollywood.com/2011/1 ... -2011.html

AFBlues - http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/1 ... -2011.html

Mess - http://www.criticalmess.net/index.php?page=644

Kastor - http://kastorskorner.com/index.php?opti ... &Itemid=54

Figures - http://www.figures.com/forums/news/1435 ... tty-q.html

I'm a little perplexed by the answers at Critical Mess & AFBlues that say Toy Guru "never said" anything about pushback from DC on Elongated Man. Check out the 33 minute mark on this video -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxn2xi62MaM

Not too many bizarre answers this time around.

But not too many "real" answers, either.

One of the MOTUCFig answers is probably gonna tick off the JLU guys, though.

It isn't really anything we haven't heard before, they just changed the verbiage.

It boils down to the "loud but not numerous" answer we've been hearing for quite a long time now. Annoying, but accurate.

If it were changed to "passionate but not numerous" I don't think we'd have quite the problem with it.

I'm sure it will tick off some JLU people. I think he's probably right though.

As a JLU fan, I'm actually happy (or at least optimistic) thanks to Fangirl2.0's messages on the Matty forum about good news for JLU fans in up-coming announcements and THIS little nugget from the latest round of Ask Matty:

1) I was wondering that now after the new 52 Static shock is officially part of the DC universe. Does Mattel have the rights to make this character and if so is it being considered for a figure in the DC universe classics line. If you do have the rights would you also be able to make other characters from the Dakotaverse.

These characters are accessible to us. And if you are a fan of Static, you'll be happy about some news we'll have coming your way in 2012.

Well you know what they say- any publicity is good publicity.

Right or not, I imagine it will tick off quite a few. That was such a stupid comment to make in the first place and TGs clarification wasn't any better. They could have saved themselves so much grief by simply saying something along the lines of "We hear ya guys. Even Agree. But we have to go by what sales. Spread the word and help us convince the bean counters to get the figures you're passionate about made". At least that, even if it was BS would make the fans feel a little included in the process. Rather than the kind of imperious way their comments come off. It has the feel of the the lord of the manner telling the stupid peasants to shut up.
