Is Mattel planning on having an SDCC exclusive this year for the DCIE/DCUC line and if so, will it be Superman related?

(Julius, you can edit this if need be because I can't think of what the line is even called nowadays).

Is a 6 inch scaled Batmobile a possibility in the Adam West Batman line? I'm not looking for you to confirm it, just wanted to see if it's even in the realm of possibilities at this point.

They've already confirmed an SDCC exclusive in the DCIE scale - but they've not said a word about what family the character is from.

The e-mail advertising the upcoming Saint Walker includes the copy "How's that hope and change thing working out?" I heard something along these lines several times during the recent presidential election season. Is Matty Collector actually using anti-Obama slogans in its ads?

If so, that'd be totally AWESOME! :twisted:

But in reality, it was probably somebody's attempt at a joke.

For the time being, yes. The Glow-In-the-dark Slimer "thank you" gift has been mailed out and there will still be the Ecto goggle prop later this year, but other than that the line is on hold until the 3rd movie or some other media driving factor renews interest in the property.

The power of the blue lanterns is derived from "hope" (just like the Green Lantern's id fueled by "will" and the red lanterns by "rage." This was by no means a political stand and was just meant to be clever.

Will they continue to re-release any of the older Masters of the Universe Classics (like Roboto, etc.)?

I've got a few questions...


Any chance of releasing 5 packs/multipacks for to help finish certain teams like Royal Flush Gang, Fatal Five, Fearsome Five, Brotherhood of Evil, Flash Rogues etc?

Are there any plans of ever finishing any Titans teams?

I get the oblique reference to hope corresponding to the Blue Lanterns hope power source, but what I'm really asking is if there is any way that the specific phrase "How's that hope and change thing working out?" is pulled from anything other than the recent election. I've honestly never heard that phrase in any other context. If anyone else has, please let me know.

I'm not personally offended, and I'm sure it wasn't written with much thought. It just seems surprising to me that Mattel would include a potentially offensive political statement that could annoy over half of the voting electorate in a promotional e-mail.

I think you are giving Mattel's copywriters much too much credit...

4 of my local Walmarts never got the TDKR Jim Gordon figure. Can we still expect to see more of him. He is going for 50 dollars on ebay
