Hello folks! Hope all of you enjoyed Labor Day weekend. Without further delay, here are the answers to our MattyCollector 2013 Q&A questions sent off mid-August:
The reveal of the Multiverse line at SDCC was a welcome surprise. Finally 4″ fully articulated DC figures! There’s a lot of neat vehicle and playset integration going on with the Imaginext line, especially with DC characters. Can we expect that same interaction with vehicles and playsets for the Multiverse line?
We’re glad that you like the Multiverse line! We were excited to announce it! We agree that there are some great opportunities for vehicles and other items that will build out the Multiverse world. We’re excited for what the future holds for this new line.
Why does it seem as if the female characters are under represented in the DC Lines? we’ve gotten 16 in the DCUC waves, a few in 2 packs, 2 in 5 packs as well as 4 in Club figures. Now I get that Female characters do not sell as big to kids but collectors would buy them.
We do our best to put out as many females as possible. There is no specific rule, just the way it has gone.
Why was Batzarro chosen as a Club figure? Does mattel listen to the collector base aside from Oversized Club figures? I haven’t heard anyone say they must Have Batzarro
Because he makes an awesome looking toy and was a great way to get a Batman variant into the line. A lot of times how “toyetic” a figure is can help determine who winds up in the line.
The 1st 2 waves for DC Multiverse are centered around Batman. Is the line limited to just Batman and Superman, or are can we expect the JLA to join in too?
Although our launch year is very heavily centered around Batman and his world, with some Superman influence, I think it’s safe to say that we will be rolling in the larger DC Universe (JLA and beyond) and not concentrating solely on Batman and Superman as the line continues.
Will there be an injustice society action figure gift set featuring the wizard,the fiddler,the icicle,the sportsmaster and the huntress anytime soon?
Never say never, but there are no plans for the Injustice Society in the foreseeable future- unfortunately! Icicle, Sportsmaster, and Huntress were considered in past years for DCU, but were bumped in favor of other characters as line plans changed. Some characters take literally years of getting slotted, cut, and re-slotted, though, so there’s always a chance.
