Regarding some of the questions about colors/quality control.

If we are purchasing these figures as a sub...should we not expect them to be the proper color?


If there was ever anything we as collectors would be entitled too, shouldn't it be as close to perfect figures as we can get out of the subs?

Telling people to go out and look for the Young Justice Batman is stupid when no store carries Young Justice.

Thank You!! I've asked the question as to why they continually produce figures that should have white costuming grey instead. I never get an answer, they always say they'll look into it. Here's an idea, read the question, GO look into it, then come back and give us the answer!!!

Why is it every other toy company can make white plastic, or use white paint, but all DCUC and MOTUC figures that should be white end up grey?? Is it really so hard to do?

(Oh, and don't get me started on the red = brown issue either, thats another colour they seem to have trouble with.)

To answer a couple of the questions -

-Toynami currenty holds the rights to the Shogun Warriors brand name , though they do not own the rights to produce some of the original robots like Great Mazinga. So far they only produced those 2ft vinyls of Voltron as Golion and Dairugger.

- The last Young Justice wave is shipping to a discounter called CW Price that is like Ross or Marshalls, but not as widespread.

Both of my questions were asked!!! YAYYYYYYY Neither of them were answered (adequately). BOOOOOOO.


Q1. 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.

A1. Netossa is light on accessories because her cape is made of a unique material that is very expensive. Jistu comes with three accessories which is already one more than the average.



Q2. The last wave of Young Justice (single carded – Superman, Green Lantern, Robin III, Artemis) are hitting… but where? We’re seeing carded ebay auctions pop up… but no retailer is stocking them. Where are they being shipped to?

A2. This last wave was released – check with your local retailers and your favorite action figure web sites!

Not really many questions to ask nowadays. Other than Red Hood, I can't think of anything that could be even brought up for DCUC.

With Lead, Platinum and Tin coming out, is there a possibility that we'll see Doc Magnus and Copper figures to complete the Metal Men action figures series?

You should put this in the Ask Matty Q&A thread, if you haven't already.
