Mattty is back with the latest round of Q&A.
Will your questions really be answered?
Read on & decide for yourself.
Got a question for the next round of ASK MATTY, then post your question HERE
1) What was the reasoning behind leaving the Wind Raider Pilot out of the Fighting Foe Men multi-pack, especially since the Wind Raider is the only vehicle we currently have in MOTUC?
He was not a model kit driver.
2) In Scott’s (Toyguru) video and his commentary in RGD#94, he states that a plan is all figured out for 2014 to get 12 monthly figures, strategic multi-packs touching on key players from PoP and NA, plus con items and non-sub items, PLUS a special plan to get Filmation characters on top of that. This was his main selling point to investing in 2013, it was his “promise” to us in 2014. Yet, he has recently stated that 2014 will offer less than 2013 and might even be reduced to 6 figures. What happened to this plan?
That plan was contingent on getting subscription numbers for 2013 that were close to 2012′s numbers. Because we were so much lower (just above the bare min) we may not get enough slots in 2014 to cover everyone. But we will still stay true to our word an “throw out” the roadmap and concentrate on making every slot we can get in 2014 count.
3) Just wondering about the watchmen Rorschach……and if it will have a ab crunch and how flexible the legs will be because of his jacket?
He uses the Question “suit” buck which does limit some articulation based on design.
4) In the Batman Unlimited line, why are we getting just such crappy choices like Injustice & Zur-En-Arrh, instead of Batman characters fans have been screaming for line Huntress, Alfred, Oracle, or Commissioner Gordon? This is just another slap in the face from Mattel.
The characters you mentioned are much more likely to be in the online collector club. Zur-En-Arrh Batman is a fun colorful, version of Batman that would work well for retail. Kids don’t know who Huntress is and that makes it hard to include her in a retail line in today’s market. But this is exactly why we have CIE – to deliver the fan demanded figures collectors want!
Editor’s Note: I call bullshit on this answer.
5) We’ve seen 4 members of the new 52 Justice League. We will see the remaining members? Green Lantern, Aquaman, & Cyborg.
Time will tell.
