After the slideshow (Which our Fearless Leader and his better half were kind enough to post), Toy Guru opened up the floor for questions.

Cornboy said that he was told Killer Moth was one of the better selling DCUC figures.

A fan asked if we might see a DCUC multi-pack of Kyle Raynor in all his various costumes. Toy Guru said that Kyle is a priority for the line, but most likely not as a multi-pack.

The panelists informally polled the room about Zebra Batman. It seems most people would buy one.

Our own Jeff Cope asked about Infinite Heroes. The announced characters that we haven't seen yet are coming.

Two kids asked about Blue and Black Lanterns. Mattel said there are no plans at the moment, but they would like to do them at some point.

A fan asked about the scale of Kilowog and Imperiex. Mattel said that they're in the 9" range.

Someone asked the J'onn J'onzz question with regards to DCUC. Toy Guru said that J'onn is a major player in the DC Universe and he'll get done.

The Lex Luthor in the Wal-Mart five pack is not a repaint.

A DCSH Two-Face reissue could happen someday.

A fan asked the panel how they felt about working on DC characters and what it's like. Cornboy said that it's an honor and a privilege. They all agreed that it's a dream come true.

The Batman in the Wal-Mart wave will come with a mobile bat-computer as an accessory.

(I think that was it. It was a short Q and A because the slide show took up a lot of time.)

Thanks for the recap and all the pics. Your efforts are much appreciated.

(and to Cornboy: Killer Moth is one of the better sellers?!? Compared to what? Who said this to you? Scott Rogers? :) I could go to 2 different Walmarts tomorrow and buy at least 8 of them that have been sitting there for months. Killer Moth and Captain Cold are taking up space all over the place.)

Awww, I wish I could have sat with you guys at the panel. However, I was attending the Hasbro SW one at 10 and when I got to this one, had to sit in the back.
