Once again our pal Toy Guru from Mattel updates us on the answers to our post NYCC burning questions:
Q1. Is the Wal-mart Wave considered wave 5 of DCUC or is it a separate wave in your numbering system? Thereby making the Hawkman/Mr. Miracle/Recovery Suit Superman wave 5 or wave 6?
A: The Wal-Mart Wave is Wave 5, the Hawkman Wave is Wave 6.
Q2. thanks for reissuing Azrael from DCSH. is there any chance we’ll ever see the elusive Cyborg Superman reissued? that would be fantastic. Thanks again!
A: You’ll just have to wait and see. We’ll announce the next pair of DCUC TRU 2-packs at SDCC in July.
Q3. What can you tell us about DCHerozone.com website that’s mentioned on the back of the Dark Knight packaging?
A: This will be a brand new website featuring games, Mattel toy previews and information about the new film Batman the Dark Knight
Q4. DCIH – Will this line have accessories? batarangs, green lanterns, cold guns, etc? Expected msrp for this line?
A: Some figures will have accessories and we have some great plans for accessories in 2009. The singles will retail for about 5.99, the 3 packs for 15.99.
Q5: I have to ask about the Toys R Us azrael/batgirl two-pack:will this release of Batgirl black/yellow "first appearance" costume (instead of the blue and gray that was already released), and will azrael’s neck be modified to look up?
A: Both of these characters will remain unchanged from their original release.
A bonus question for our international friends:
Q6. Is there any chance of making the Mattel line available VIA Diamond Select for international distribution? I’ve seen the Previews catalogue and there are some items that allow for this. Foreign retailers can order these said items but US retailers cannot.
This will help preserve your exclusivity deals with Target, TRU and Wal*Mart but make your product available to us hapless international collectors.
A: We are continuing to work with all of our international markets to bring collector items to them. One of the issues we face is that while there is a small vocal group of fans wanting this product in different international territories such as South America, Europe and Asia, they do not always represent the entire international territory’s buying habits. We will do our best to try and meet collector needs while maintinaing case packs and product that fills the needs of international markets.
