Do DC toys still exist?

Your campaign has all of the momentum of a runaway freight train. Why are you so popular?

What's up with Movie Masters? Can we expect any more, besides Adam West Batman or Man of Steel?

Do you have any lines you would consider to be a success?

Do you agree that if you were to make a Perez era disco collar Nightwing that the male Legionaire/ older teen buck is the correct buck for that character as he appeared in the comics? Just to be clear, I'm not asking if this figure is being made, just that if it were to be that you know what buck to use.

Having had the likeness rights for both Brandon Routh and Christopher Reeve, what are our chances of seeing them in 6" action figure form?

Is Courtroom Ray most likely the final 6" Ghostbusters figure we'll ever get, or is there ANY hope of ever getting more 6" GB figures in the future, perhaps as convention exclusives?

It was said there was no chance of a Green Lantern: The Animated Series line in 2012. With 2013 fast approaching, is there any chance there has been any reevaluation?

it was said that the rising cost of materials and labor resulted in the cost rise for MOTUC, so as not to skimp on paint apps or accessories. If that is the case, why are the first few reveals for 2013 so light on both? No face mask, alt head, or accessory for Netossa? No belt for Jitsu? (Why he comes with two weapons that he can't hold at the same time is another issue.) We're just worried that after investing in this line for another year, we're going to get less than we've come to expect, only now having to pay MORE.

What is the status of the Hawkman and Flash figures in the Hero World line? Both of these figures have reportedly been seen at retail, but in a previous Q&A, Mattel said that the Hawkman would not be released. Are these exclusives to any particular retail outlet? Do you know what the timetable for their release is?

Those figures are OUT NOW! Available in a free standing 4 sided imaginext/Hero World display. The Aquaman w/Vehicle pack may or may not be included in the display, it hasn't been "officially seen" yet, but there is space for it.

They are going fast and not stocked very deeply so if you are still looking for them get to your local Kmart ASAP.

For those willing to take the chance, they are also listed on the Kmart.com site, but as has been well documented in the past, its a crap shoot at best trying to get the right item shipped to you.

With the contraction of MOTUC this year and next, we will still get re-releases of core characters? I know He-man and Skeletor are givens, but I'm concerned about Teela. I'm still missing her and she went VERY quickly the last she she was offered again.

Will Teela get another re-release this year or in 2014?

The last wave of Young Justice is hitting... but where? We're seeing carded ebay auctions pop up... but no retailer is stocking them. Where are they being shipped to?
