I’m not going to pretend I know a whole lot about cost and production logistics, I have somewhat of an idea from what I’ve gleaned from various blogs and articles I’ve read. I think to create an immense line such as MOTUC or DCUC you almost have to rely on the buck system. Look at NECA and how many properties they’ve landed, but then only end up pushing out a few figures from each series. I think with the guidance of the Horsemen Mattel has done some great figures. Now, if you asked me what would I rather have, a figure with 100% new sculpt, or a figure with 35% new sculpt, the choice would be obvious. I’m just curious if that’s something Mattel could really do though. That said, Hasbro seems to be able to do it with MU, so why not Matty with DCUC or MOTU? Curiouser and curiouser.
In terms of cutbacks on all ends, I think the industry is hurting. How many independent companies that are not NECA, McF, or Mezco do not struggle to keep afloat. One bad license, one wrong move, they could be filing for Chapter 11.

lastly, the barbie house thing... in a cost comparison between that and a motuc castle grayskull, i would say only this... castle grayskull would move many fewer units, but would require many fewer actual pieces to feel like a "complete" buy.... like just look at all the crap that house comes with! we already got the weapons rack that came w/ the vintage castle as a separate item, and they could easily offer a throne chair as a separate item, as they could point dredd. i don't think anyone would demand the voice chip crap that the newer grayskull came w/, so the castle would really only need the elevator, the turret defenses, two walls, and a ladder. that's nothing compared to that dream house even if close in size (which it wouldn't have to be, given the size difference between barbie and he-man) i'd figure that, realistically, the two playsets should come out pretty damned close in cost, all things factored together.
