Ask Matty – July 15th Edition
Yes, we are working on this and will see if we can find a way to release these vital accessories!
ItsAllTrue.Net: Does Mattel plan to release Ghostbusters 2 versions of Venkman & Egon even though they only have minor differences to their uniforms and no new gear between films?
Yes, although these figures have very little change from their movie 1 version we would love to get to them in time to complete fan’s movie 2 scenes.
MOTUClassics.Com: Is Battle Armor Faker one of the six 2011 TRU MOTU/DC 2pks?
It was one of the original six but at this point it will be the final pack as retailers have not ordered any additional packs and it looks like the line will end with this pack. The GL/Zodac and Supergirl/She-Ra packs should still hit before the end of the year now for a total of 5 packs. But the sixth pack will not move forward unfortunately. There just has not been enough interest from retailers to keep this line going. While we announced 6 packs and hoped to do 6, we could not find a retailer who would take the min order needed for the 6th pack.
MOTUClassics.Com: Is there a firm number of MOTU Classics reissues for the second half of the year? Will they still be monthly?
Likely there will still be re-releases each month, but all will be older figures that already had been slotted into the production schedule (line time) for re-release. This will also spill over into 2012. The change is really that starting with Leech and Hordak in Sept, we will no longer be going into second runs on newer figures. So all re-releases will be of older figures from the line already scheduled. We won’t be scheduling any more at this point.
DCClassics.Com: With DC Relaunch character designs being mixed in for 2012, will a relaunch design take precedence over a classic design for characters getting their first figure?
That is still up on the air. We are working very closely with our partners at DC and WB to get the most iconic versions if each character out from various eras! Time will tell.
We need your questions for the next round!
