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. What’s going on with the 4″ Young Justice line? Will the next wave have a C&C? Or pieces like the Hall of Justice? Are there any other 4″ figures coming this year after Artemis, Superman, Green Lantern and Robin?
A1. There is a second wave of 2 packs planned with a second C&C oversized figure that will be shown later this year.
Q2. With Steel being announced at ToyFair as one of the figures coming up in the retail DCnU line, can you let us know which version you’ll be releasing? Will it be the one with the flat grey ‘S’ shield, the vac-metalised shield, or will it be done as a variant again?
A2. It is the non shiny flat version.
Q3. You’ve shown Poison Ivy in the sub, and have done her in her more recent green skinned look. But what are the chances of getting her in her classic costume with caucasian skin as a figure in the retail line further down the road? If you did do this, could you make some new parts like a new head, gloves and boots to make it comic accurate?
A3. Certainly a possibility but nothing is planned at this time.
Q4. You guys listed Metron as coming on 4-16, or the first day of the Club IE sub, so I was wondering if he will ship with Flash or will he be separate? I ordered two subs, but did so separately so I’m hoping I don’t have to pay shipping for two Flash figures and two Metron figures all in April.
A4. They will ship together. At least that is the plan right now.
Q5. When will we see the last couple of reveals for the last figures in the MOTUC 30th Anniversary line?
A5. Ideally at SDCC.
If you’d like to ask a question for the April 1st 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.
Thanks again to the team at Mattel for taking time to answer our questions!
