Twice a month the gang from Mattel are kind enough to answer five questions from AFi readers. The Mattel marketing and PR team, have replied with the answers to our latest round of questions that AFi readers have posted in our forums.
If you have post-Toy Fair questions make sure to post them in the thread for the next round.
Let’s get to the questions and the answers!
Q1. Any plans on other women imaginext figures besides cat women?
A1. Not at this time but you never know what the future will bring!
Q2. With General Zod appearing in the next Superman film, what are the chances of getting him in his comic-appearance in the DC All Stars or DC Sub lines?
A2. He is always a possibility but no plans to announce a Zod right now.
Q3. Will the retail price of DC All-Stars be less than it is for DCUC, especially since it is now a lone figure with no CnC or (so far) accessories?
A3. It is up to each retailer to set their own price. However, raw materials and labor costs do continue to rise and we will do our best to keep SRP prices as low as possible. Sometimes this means removing a base or a C&C piece to avoid cost reducing a figure.
Q4. Of all the items you just debued at Toy Fair this past week, what are you personally the most excited for (for for fans to get to see?)
A4. From Toyguru: “I think for me it is the Hover Board! We’ve wanted to do BTTF items on Mattycollector.com for a long time now and since the board was “made by Mattel” in the movie, we just had to do this!
I was also really excited to reveal Thunder Punch He-Man’s bio. We have known the fans were in a quagmire as far as storyline goes and this bio along with the first page of the new mini comic should really shed a lot of light!”
If you’d like to ask a question for the February 15th submission then feel free to post your questions in our Mattel Q&A question submissions thread! Remember they can be about any Mattel product including MOTUC, Ghostbusters,WWE any of the Mattel DC lines, Voltron and Cars. Twice a month we draw our submission question directly from the ones that AFi readers post.
You can submit new questions in this thread.
You can find our past Q&A’s here. And you can discuss the answers on our Mattel board.
Thanks again to the team at Mattel for taking time to answer our questions!
