Ask your questions for Mattel's January Q&A Round

Recommended Posts

(Asking this, because Mattel doesn't seem to understand what the past question makers are trying to say.)

 

DCUC:

 

There seems to be a mis-understanding at Mattel when it comes to the hopes of fans getting Gentle Ghost from the DCUC line. Mattel says the character is not a kid favorite, although released more than once in the children-focused Brave and the Bold line. The character also made an appearance in the JLU line. Maybe the character isn't desired enough for a re-release in the DCUC line, but then what do what appears to be more and more collectors to in an effort to build the wave 8 Giganta when the very essential parts are missing? We played the marketing game of buying all the needed figures even though some are very undesirable, and now we just want to be able to complete the build a figure. Better case assortments from Mattel would have helped fix this issue, and while being improved in future releases, does nothing for fans and collectors now.

DCUC

 

1. With the over abundance of popularity towards Green Lantern recently is there any chance of a reissue of Sinestro in his Sinestro corps uniform?

2. The Lanterns that come with Hal Jordan and Sinestro look a bit off in color any chance of repaint of them (perhaps with a metallic paint coating)?

3. Any thoughts on just an Green Lantern, Sinesto Corps Constructs accessory pack Or some flight stands in green and yellow.

 

 

 

Thanks

Nick

MOTUC

 

Given the shopping cart issues during the Matty Collector sale on February 16th, what steps will be taken to fix the problem of being able to add an item to your shopping cart and go directly to paying for it and have it be sold out before you can finish paying?

 

On the official Matty Collector forums, support for advance pre-orders(pre-orders placed before the quantity of figures to produce is determined) is very high. Would you be willing to consider doing pre-orders?

TMNT:

 

With NECA failing to deliver any figures past the 4 Ninja Turtles, would Mattel be interested in acquiring the license for comic-based TMNT figures once it is available? This would seem like a great fit as a Matty Collector exclusive line considering how popular the Four Horsemen sculpted NECA figures were with fans and the depth of the TMNT comic universe.

Let's say that someone at Mattel comes to Toy Guru and says, " The next DCUC line is yours to decide. You can pick whatever hero from whatever decade in any look you would like."

 

What would Toy Guru choose?

 

Who would be his choices for the figures and who would be his choice for the collect and connect.

The Retro Action style of toy makes sense for DC characters, since they resemble the old Mego toys. Why use that style for The Real Ghostbusters when the 6" scale is far more suitable for them? To me, they look quite goofy.
