Welcome to another round of the MattyCollector 2014 Q&A! Here we go:
The Super Powers Collection revealed at Toy Fair has figures listed for $30 each. For clarification, is this line a MattyCollector exclusive or destined for retail too?
This line is only available on Mattycollector.com and will be released in two “waves” of 3 individual figures in late summer, early fall.
The MOTUC Mini figures look adorable – especially Castle Grayskull. Is this line only going to consist of that one wave of six 2-packs, or will this be an ongoing line (with say, Snake Mountain as the next “theme” build)?
If the line does well enough in 2014 we’d love to look at what we can do in 2015. But that has not been determined yet.
So does anyone know if Matty is doing anything to improve the way their con exclusives are being distributed? Every year I have to fight re-sellers (Who are buying 9 Monster High Dolls at one time) just so I can get my 6 yr old daughter 1 so she can play with it. IS Matty planning on doing anything about the amount people can buy so their core fans can have the excitement of picking up one of the dolls at con.
Yes, we always enforce strict limits on all of our figures at conventions to six per person per line wait.
Last time you mentioned that the 4H had designed the Total Heroes Ultra figures. Being that those figures use base bodies from the retail Total Heroes line, does this mean that the 4H sculpted the mainline Total Heroes line at retail too, or just the new parts that come with the Total Heroes Ultra figures? We had heard before that the 4H had provided design supervision for the mainline Total Heroes line, we just wanted clarification if they are indeed the actual designers behind the mainline.
This would be a question for the DC retail team. Quite a few sculptors and toy makers worked on designing aspects of this line, both for the retail and online components. For full details and breakdown, the DC retail team would be the folks to ask!
