TheFwoosh recently had a chance to talk with Derick Deller & Brian Sopinsky of Mattel, where they discussed upcoming Young Justice toys! The cartoon has created quite a buzz, and yes, there is something for us older collectors; Young Justice in DC Universe Classics! More info:
For the 6″ line, it was kind of a no-brainer to call on the services of the Four Horsemen. Like I said, continuity was the name of the game, so we wanted to put this part of our line in the hands of the geniuses that give us the DCU Classic line. The Horsemen have been able to deliver a product line-up that makes Young Justice look unique, but will also look great displayed next to DCUC.
Here’s what we can expect of Young Justice DCUC by the 4H:
TheFwoosh: For the 6 inch figures, you talked a little about accessories. Actually, you talked a little about a lot of accessories! What else can you tell us about this exciting idea of packing these guys with “the most across any of [our] DC Universe lines”?
Deller/Sopinsky: We added a lot of accessories to really play up on the whole “Mission” aspect of the show; giving each hero the right tools for the job. Each character has a lot of cool gadgets in the show, and we really wanted to celebrate that. Characters like Aqualad worked great for this, because he can pretty much create any type of weapon out of water with his Water Bearers; so this gives us the chance to give those awesome weapons to the fans.
TheFwoosh: So, to summarize, the 6 inch figures, we’re getting 4 Horsemen sculpts, DCUC compatibility, loads of accessories, and “hyper-articulation”? Any chance you could tell us a little more about that?
Deller/Sopinsky: You are correct for the most part, you will be getting 4 Horseman sculpts that will go seamlessly with your existing DCUC collection. Basically the 4 Horseman did their versions of the heroes and villains from the show, so imagine these characters brought to life in the world of the DCUC figures. Each character will not only come with a lot of accessories but a really cool display base/diorama based on different environments/ scenes from the show. They will have the same great articulation found in the DCUC figures.
So Young Justice and DC fans, you’re got something to rejoice about! Share your thoughts after the jump!
