Sorry for the delay folks, we got this set of answers for the MattyCollector 2013 Q&A this weekend but I was not able to post it until now. In addition, for those who have not heard, the Q&A switched from covering all Mattel products to solely covering MattyCollector’s online exclusives. Without further ado, here are our answers for the 1st half of November:
We’ve seen the MOTU Mini’s and they’re neat, they look like the small DC action packs you make. Have you considered making MOTUC Imaginext figures? Imaginext seems to be taking off very well.
That would be cool but no plans right now!
Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is the 2014 Damien Robin actually different from the prototype?
Some changes are always made from prototype to toy, but it is the same sku and sculpt. No changes beyond logistical production ones.
With the amount of swappable parts included with these figures, the playability is increased substantially. Was there not any mass market retail support for these Ultra figures? The kid in me re-awakened once I saw these figures.
Swapable parts are expensive and the goal was to keep the retail execution to a $9.99 SRP. One of the great things about Matty.com is it allows us to experiment with items that would not work at retail such as the plus’d up Ultra Total Heroes line!
After the 2014 figures are done, is that IT for the 4 Horsemen on Mattel DC product? Will they continue to sculpt 6″ DC figures for MattyCollector’s online store or is 2014 really the end of their era with you on DC figures?
We really can’t comment on plans that far in the future. The Four Horsemen continue to be our sculpting team on MOTUC, DCUC and the Ultra Total Heroes lines.
Well that’s a wrap, remember to post your MattyCollector 2013 Q&A questions here!
