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?


That line also consists of prop replicas, and they seem to sell well enough for Mattel to offer without requiring a pre-sale. Guess prop replicas will ultimately be all we get from the "Epic Creations" line. :(

How much production time would you need if you were to offer us a "pre sale" type item? Something that hadn't already been drawn up, but you wanted to see if the fans would buy enough at a set price to be made?



Similar to the Superboy/Miss Martian set, but something that hadn't already been tooled. 6 months? 12 months?

If we don't hit tier 2 on the DC sub, would you consider a Kickstarter campaign for Unleashed Doomsday? This route seemed to work REALLY well for the Four Horsemen's Ravens, and might be able to cast a wider net, you know we all want this figure!

A two-part question about the webstore. Why has the WWE part of the site been sectioned off from the rest of the offerings (product can only be found by a specific search or by following the tiny WWE link at the bottom of the page) and why can't non-Early Access items be added to an Early Access order (specifically talking about everyday store items like stands)?

You recently teased an upcoming Power Sword for the 2014 MOTUC sub. In the press release you stated that the accessory would be packaged with someone that might not be connected to the sword (storyline wise I'm assuming).

Could you use this strategy to give us Nekron's Scythe in the DCIE sub for 2014? It seems that you have a real concern for adding accessories to the MOTUC line, how about sharing that drive with us DC collectors?

Is there any chance those who did subscribe might get a thank you gift from Mattel like the Ghostbusters subscribers got when their sub didn't go through? That would certainly be a nice consolation.

Is there some way to make sure those who actually supported the 2014 DCIE subscription get the first shot at the figures (if any) that get released next year? Kind of like the Early Access sales we saw this year on the Matty site?

Or at the very least, have those that subbed in 2013 get early access to the 2014 figures next year?

Any chance you would let another company barrow the license for Dc figures
