So by now you have read that Boy Wonder is changing posts at Mattel. I have been working with the new gang an Mattel that work on the DC properties to do a regular Q&A session (much like Hasbro is doing with SW and Joes). So... even though we have a 40 page thread of questions for BW, let's start fresh for the new team so they don't get over whelmed. Post your questions here and I'll pull them 3 at a time to send to the gang at Mattel and they will answer them here for us (as soon as the new guys pick snazy new handles).

I know you have questions. Let's get you some answers!

EDIT: This thread is for questions. Commentary, self promotion, and "I agree/seconded" posts will be edited and deleted in order to keep this thread as easy to read as possible for the Mattel folks. - sf.

EDIT2: Please include the LINE you are asking about. The same characters appear in several lines. Example: When is Clayface coming out? TheBatman Clayface has been done at least twice. DCSH Clayface was shown at Toy Fair. A JLU style Clayface has not been even hinted at.

EDIT 3: Answers, when received, will be put in the separate "Mattel Answers" thread.

Hello Mattel and thank you for JLU...

My question is.....Will the 10" line continue and can we hope to see DIFFERNT characters in it such as Giganta and Atom Smasher????

With Joker finally appearing in the JLU line...any chance we will see more Batman villans who appeared? Firefly,Clayface,Poison Ivy, Clock King & Harley Quinn would all be great additions!!

Can we hope and wish for Cheetah? She just seems like a must at this point!!

Thanks for your time.

With the Justice League showing up in 'The Batman,' will JL-member action figures in that line be next?

Is Mattel aware of how much we dislike uneven packouts and especially when there is only one new figure/3-pack in the case? They want to sell the figures and I want to buy the figures, but I can't if they're not distributed.

Also, thanks for keeping the JLU line going!

Is there any possibility of going back to the original wonderwoman sculpt (the 5 poa JL version) or giving the current 3-pack version a new headsculpt?

Any chance of "unmasked" or civilian versions of the core 7?

I'd like to know a few things about the JLU line :

1. How does a character get considered for production, especially now that the show is no longer on the air?

2. Who has final approval on each figure? Is it a single person or a team?

3. In summary, what does the line have to do profit-wise to keep going for years to come? Or, what would it take for the line to be considered for cancellation? I don't need numbers...just an explanation of the process.

4. Is there any way you could pursue a "DCAU" type license that would allow you to make characters from BTAS, TNBA, or STAS?

5. Are you aware I'd consult for FREE and have considerable DCAU knowedge that I'd be happy to share?

You don't have to answer that last one. :)

Peace,

Chip

I would like to know, if you could stop to add painted details like belts, and boots, and make some 3d details.
Also if we are gonna see more villains at comic con, and if you are gonna solve the distribution problems.
One more thing, is any chance that JLU product will be carried to Argentina? we had the the first two waves of 3 packs for christmas of 2005 and nothing else :cry:

Is there any way for you to regulate the pricing of DCSH here in the Southeast Asia? I'm from the Philippines and the retail price here is P800 (approx. $16). I think my "neighbors" in Singapore and Malaysia are also wondering why the prices in this region are significantly higher than in the US.

I hope there is something that can be done about this.

Thanks in advance.

And when will the Cyborg Superman show up? :)
