Ask Matty – November 1st Edition
We need your questions for the next round!
Submit your suggestions on the newly expanded ItsAllTrue.net Forums…
DCClassics.Com: Recently, Toy Guru has commented that the DCUC TRU Exclusive singles will continue into 2011. Will that SKU still feature only Alex Ross inspired repaints or it will it expand beyond that?
Actually, to update fans on this, retailers were not interested in continuing this line in 2011. We will look for other ways to bring out repainted figures. At this time, the single repaints are not going forward.
Editor’s Note: Toy Guru has confirmed for IAT that the Black Tux Joker is indeed in limbo with the cancellation of the TRU Repaints.
DCClassics.Com:With DCUC16 being scheduled for early 2011, will it be considered one of the five 2011 waves or will Mattel now plan for six waves of DC Classics on the 2011 schedule?
Ideally, there will be one new wave every two to four months in 2011.
MOTUClassics.Com: When Mattel mentions ways to “refresh” MOTUC figures by making small changes to previous releases, does Mattel intend to include those “slightly changed” figures in the subscription?
The subscription only includes new figures. Re-releases (whether or not they have changes) are not part of the subscription.
We do want to finish these teams as well as start and complete many others. This is more of a long-term goal and we don’t have a set date to announce right now on when these teams will be complete. We want the line to live on for many years and in time fans will ideally be able to complete key teams!
MOTUClassics.Com: When the MOTU team speculates about future figures like Fisto and Jitsu, has any thought been given to making the larger hands removable and/or interchangeable? That would increase their value as they could be swapped out for different decos in future weapons packs or be made as compatible attachments for Trap Jaw & Roboto.
We have discussed this internally for when, and if, we get to Fisto and Jitsu.
