Just a few days before Toy Fair 2014 and we have a new batch of answers to questions we sent off for the MattyCollector Q&A! Without further ado, here they are:
When/If the DC Signature Series figures sell out will it be possible to see more after? Also you keep saying it failed this time does that mean there will be another attempt using the Roadmap that will be used by the MOTUC series?
Definitely not. 2014 is the final bow for this line with a final “goodbye” item to be previewed at NYTF. Without the 2014 sub selling through this line will need to head into the sunset, regardless of how the quarterly or goodbye item performs. While our fans are very passionate and amazing, we simply do not have enough of them to keep the line going. Supporting the 2014 sub WAS the opportunity to keep the line going and that was not able to hit the min tier 1 levels.
Ghostbusters toys were initially only available online before some went to Big Lots. Was there any brick & mortar/mass market store interested in becoming an exclusive home to Ghostbusters at some point, like Toys R Us?
We did offer several GB items at Toys R Us including a 4 pack of 6” figs and the Retro Action line. At this time we don’t have a retail partner for the line. Perhaps when and if a new movie comes around we can revisit.
If the MOTU movie does take off, do you plan on bringing back MOTU toys to brick & mortar mass market stores, or will it remain online only?
Definitely! When a MOTU film hits you can expect a fill movie retail line as well.
Since DCUC/Club Intinite Earths is ending, can you tell us about the figures that were planned but never made it? For example, was Dick Grayson Batman ever planned?
Unfortunately no. We can not discuss any in development figures or ideas.
