One thing everyone seems to be overlooking is the fact that the projects he named were projects he was working on. From experience I can tell you most companies that use graphic designers employee several. Entire rooms full of comercial artists, and depending on the size of the company, they may all be working on seperate projects/accounts.
Just because this one guy didn't have anyting dosen't mean the dude in the next cubicle didn't have tons of DCAU material laying around.
Except that he lists off pretty much every other DC action figure line that Mattel has put out since they acquired the license. He seems to be *the* guy for the DC stuff - so, it was surprising that he didn't mention the "upcoming" DCAU line.
But again, it could just be because that line hasn't been officially announced so he can't talk about it. Or it could be something else. Unfortunately, we won't know anything until we actually get new animated style figures at retail or we don't and are told that the line is dead. But honestly (and I know Toy Guru just gave us what amounted to good news... technically) retailers have a really short memory and attention span - and that's just not good for JLU right now.
