How and when is Mattel planning on releasing the 6 inch Arkham Origins figures of Deathstroke and Batman, that we saw at Comic Con?

Now that the Unlimited line is cancelled is there any chance that we might see a 6 inch Batman sub in the future? Especially if the DCUC sub fails.

It appears, based upon pictures from Comic Con, that the 3-3/4" evergreen Batman line figures will now feature knee & elbow articulation. Is that the case?

What is the Batman Unlimited Damian Robin action figure's fate? Will we see him for sale on Matty or anywhere else?

When can we expect to start seeing the new DC lines (especially the "evergreen Batman 3.75") start hitting retail? (Generally speaking, are they estimated for Q3 of 13? Q4? Not until 2014...)

and probably more important, to me anyway, can we please get a contact inside Fisher Price to come talk with us about the Imaginext line and all the awesomeness they keep putting into their DC line?

Thanks for the inclusion of the Keaton Batman in the new 4 inch line. Is there any chance of getting a Lynda Carter Wonder Woman, Chriistopher Reeve Superman or John Wesley Shipp Flash in 4 inches as well?

2014 will mark the 30th anniversary of Kenner's Super Powers line. How about something to commemorate it, like a 3-pack of Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman repainted in their Super Powers colors? We know at one point some of those were considered for release and have even leaked through the black market onto Ebay for ridiculous prices. These are the big 3 characters, so surely a 3-pack of them would sell well at retail or on Mattycollector.com. If we can't get a special Super Powers 3-pack honoring the anniversary, then at least give us that light blue Superman. A lot of people would love to have him.

In any case, please tell us you have SOMETHING planned to honor the 30th anniversary of Super Powers.

Here's another question:

Are you tentatively planning to release a 2nd wave of figures or other items in 2014 for the 1966 Batman line, or is everything coming this year all we can expect? Or is it a case of waiting to see how sales do for this year's products? The line is a great one, but many of us won't feel that it's complete without Batgirl, or even Bruce and Dick in their regular civilian clothing. If you're looking for ideas for store exclusives or convention exclusives next year, we'd love to get Batgirl with her Batcycle, or a Bruce and Dick civlian 2-pack with the library backdrop and the Shakespeare bust that activates the hidden Bat-Poles. :)

Was it a lack of orders/interest from retailers or Mattel's decision to not continue the 4H sculpted DC unlimited lines at retail?

Will mattel ever try to re-launch 4H DCUC at retail the way Hasbro have re-launched Marvel Legends?

Would smaller 4H DCUC team/era/storyline sub lines similar to Watchmen ever be considered for Matty.com? A Titans 6 figure set, a Morrison JLA set etc would be awesome.

Will we ever get one off 2pks of 4H DCUC at retail around holiday time? A Dick Grayson Batman w/ the cancelled Damian Wayne Robin would be a great set for retail, and save Robin from taking up a sub space while still getting him out to us.

"if" Ecto-1 doesn't make the minimum will there be a second more scaled back version offered at a lower price?

There's no way they'll answer that before the deadline of the current Ecto-1. But then again, that's just a week away now. :)

Still, I'm sure they'll scrap it along with those removable backpack Ghostbuster figures just out of spite. :(

well it just seems weird that theyd hinge the flagship, um, ship from the epic creations line on a short presale. its not like this is the fourth or fifth item in the line. its the first. if they cant make the first thing in the line work, what happens next? another slightly larger totally out of scale hall of justice diorama?
