As we enter the home stretch toward SDCC 08 our pal Toy Guru from Mattel updates us on the answers to our burning questions that AFI readers have posted in our forums:
Q1. Will there be any variations on the SDCC exclusives (Like clear Man-Bat or slimy Grundy)
A: King Grayskull will be available in his standard colors as well as a chase version showing him as a statue as Adam first encountered him. Here are some pics!
Q2. Will the DCUC Batman Beyond include his Wings shown in the 2 up? And will DCUC Ares come with all 4 his accessories, also shown in the 2 up?
A: The Batman Beyond figure will have his wings retracted, but we do have a big surprise for Batman Beyond in the 6”scale. Stay tuned…
Ares will come with a massive sword and axe. He is Friggin huge!
Q3. In the JLU line…is it possible to stop using the wide leg-high heeled female body for every single female character and branch out a bit using the straight- legged Shayera Hol legs or the Wonder Woman legs for some of the characters?? It just seems to be if you remove the belt from Shayera you would have the PERFECT blank canvass to make so many other female characters!
A: The belt is actually part of the torso piece on Hawkgirl, so this would require a complete new female upper body, it can’t just be removed. We will work on creating upgraded females bucks for future figures though. Mattel is always looking for ways to improve our toy lines. Thanks for the great suggestion.
Q4. Is the larger Bane figure from “The Batman” line still scheduled for release? If so, when can we expect to see him in the stores?
A: He should be out now.
Q5.The 10” Justice Lords Batman is showing up in Brazil currently. Will it have a US release?
A: The 10 inch JLU figures are being phased out domestically.
