Ask Matty – June 15th Edition
DCClassics.Com Asks: We’ve recently learned that TRU will have an exclusive Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters Bane vs. Batman 2pk and now that Wal-Mart will have an exclusive Jim Gordon. Are these the only two store exclusives or can we expect more in our near future?
K-Mart has Batman with blueprints of his vehicles. That rounds out the exclusives.
ItsAllTrue.Net Asks: Will the “Thank You” Slimer be painted or cast in GITD plastic?
Slimer will be cast in GITD plastic.
MOTUClassics.Com Asks: We know the intention is there to get Draego-Man’s cut accessories back into the line somewhere, is the same true for Spector’s attachments?
Spector’s is a little harder. For Draego Man, his accessories are all hand held and can work with almost any figure. Spector’s whip attaches through the arm comm-link on Spector and is specific to only him, so it is a little harder. But if there is enough demand, we know a certain Mattel Brand Manager that would love to see this accessory released one day!
ItsAllTrue.Net Asks:Does Mattel have any type of advance notice when a Wrestler changes their look? For example, we loved the new Undertaker duds at Wrestlemania 28, but how long realistically would it be before we could see it as a figure?
For the most part, we learn about updated looks or ring attire the same time you do! But sometimes we do hear rumblings about upcoming changes and we had a feeling Undertaker was going to sport a shorter ‘do so we were prepared. Keep an eye out for a special WrestleMania 28 Undertaker figure hitting select shelves later this year!
MOTUClassics.Com Asks: We asked about this a few years ago, but Toy Guru’s recent Scareglow blog has got us thinking about it again. Karak Nul – is he more than just a name? Is there any design or backstory on his pre-Scareglow years. Is he on the table as a possible figure or is that very unlikely?
We actually have fleshed this out and, in time, it is always possible to see “secret identity” figures for quite a few MOTU characters pre-transformation (similar to Keldor).
We need your questions for the next round!
