Hello Toyark members, we hope you enjoyed our coverage of Toy Fair 2011, Mattel was present, hence why there was no Q&A for the middle of February. We’ve received the answers for March 1st, 2011, and today we bring you news/insight on:
- More Batman Movie Masters!
- Green Lantern Movie Masters
1) The Young Justice Select Sculpt line by the 4H looks great! Is this line limited just to the Young Justice team, or are you able to include figures of their mentors and villains? The sculpts for this line by the 4H are very impressive, and the format is appealing with the inclusion of bases/accessories.
A) It isn’t limited in any sense, but we are going to concentrate for the most part on the members of Young Justice in this scale. Members of the Justice League will be offered but in the 4 ¼-inch scale in the two-packs with their sidekick.
2) Imaginext covers a wide variety of themes, has there been any thought on making WWE Imaginext figures/playsets?
A) Nothing to announce at this time, but a great suggestion we will pass along to the WWE and Fisher-Price teams.
3) The Batman Legacy line has massive potential since it includes figures from the movies, comics, and Arkham Asylum! The Arkham Asylum Batman was a very impressive sight to behold. Since he does don blue and gray in the game, will a blue/gray repaint be on the way soon?
A) Clearly a great repaint choice but nothing to confirm or announce quite yet.
4) Were the Green Lantern Movie Masters sculpted by the 4H, or in-house at Mattel?
A) The Parallax Collect-and-Connect figure was sculpted by the Horsemen, but all the figures were done by Mattel sculptors.
5) Is the Batman Legacy line meant to last through the 3rd Batman film by Chris Nolan? We ask this because this line does feature Movie Master figures(Gordon), and quite honestly, we want more figures! We think that the creation of this line is ample opportunity to release figures Movie Masters figures of Ras Al Ghul, ninja training Bruce Wayne, Michael Keaton Batman, et al, just to name a few.
A) More Movie Masters are on the way with at least one more two-pack themed for the previous Nolan Batman films, which will help lead us into the Dark Knight Rises line, which we can’t imagine won’t have it’s own Movie Master segment as well. We are just not ready to comment on 2012 product quite yet. We are well aware of fan demand for figures from the first movie in this line and we do aim to please!
