Matty’s back, but half the team isn’t around. We get some answers anyway!

1. So MOTU has been strong enough to get a lot of stuff greenlit. Even though it hasn’t been as strong as it was in year’s past, we’ve still gotten Filmation subs, Caste Grayskull, etc. So how about the Mini Masters? Why are they still out of reach?

We are still looking into these and hope to find a way to get to them. Too cool not to if we can!

2. Obviously this would likely be on a case by case basis, but if the Filmation sub does good, could we potentially see other small subs like this in the future? Say another Filmation sub or a Mini Comics sub? To help those core teams.

Anything is possible but right now we are concentrating on the 2013 Filmation sub first.

3. With the Adam West Batman line, is everyone on the table, such as auxiliary characters like Alfred or Aunt Harriet or is this going to stick to only the biggest names in the series?

Sorry the DC retail team was unavailable to answer questions this round.

4. Any chance for MattyCollector exclusives for the 66 Batman line, such as a two pack of Secret Identities or something that might not be as suited for retail?

Sorry the DC retail team was unavailable to answer questions this round.

5. In March, Elizabeth and 97 HBK, will both be for sale on MattyCollector. Could we potentially see more Flashbacks released on Matty like this going forward? Not exclusive figures, but just an opportunity on MattyCollector. So many fans struggle to find the Flashbacks, it seems like a great incentive for Early Access subscribers and a good way to get more of those figures out into fan’s hands.

It is possible and we are looking at ways of brining more collector WWE figures to Matty. Please continue to let us know what you would like to see!

If you have questions you’d like submitted to Mattel (I sent in a few this round from folk’s submissions to be answered next time around), email me or reply here with a question and I’ll try to get it asked. No matter what your question, I will ask it of Mattel. I need some good questions folks.

    Anytime I hear/read “Mattel & Filmation” I instantly think of them doing the Flimation Ghostbusters line. Yeah, the cartoon was dreadful but the toys were awesome! Who wouldn’t want an updated Tracy the Gorilla and Ghost Buggy?

      I almost asked them this time around if they were ever going to explore that, but I seriously doubt they ever would. Which is a shame. I could dig a Prime Evil.

    Hmmm….the retail team just does not seem to want to answer any questions.

  • clark says:

    I like the idea of a mini-comics sub. Also, the Filmation sub seems like a cool deal (I don’t like the figures they’ve shown though, so I’m not getting one). Commit to 6 figures, no additional cost to reserve them, plus a small price break over day of sales. I can handle that idea. I can’t commit to $500+ subscription, but $150 seems ok.

    Seriously, where’s the DC retail team?! How long would it take ToyGuru to send them an E-mail and have them answer two simple questions? Are they too busy having their fingers in their ears so they can’t hear complaints (and their thumbs up their ass) that they can’t field questions?

    “Everyone on the table”. Love this tag line. Tardguru says one thing and it becomes a meme.
