Welcome to another round of the MattyCollector 2014 Q&A! Remember to post all your MattyCollector Q&A questions here! Without further ado, here’s the 1st batch of answers for February 2014:
Last time you mentioned that Total Heroes would have minimal new tooling and for the most part will use existing bucks used on mass retail figures/characters. Figures like Bat Girl, could come with 2 heads, one for Babs, one for Cassie. Will female figures be part of the line, and if so, will they be limited to MattyCollector?
Females are definitely feasible, but we (Matty) would need to wait for a female buck to be developed by the retail team before we could offer collector based female TH figures.
With the DC Universe Classics line no longer continuing under the Infinite Earths Subscription, does this mean the 4H are done sculpting DC figures for you? We’re just trying to get clarification, I mean after 2014, is that really “it” for 4H DC product for you guys? We read that the 4H supervised the Total Heroes line but that’s different from what they did with the DCUC line.
The 4HM continue to work with Mattel on a variety of lines including those in the DC world. Most recently they sculpted the TH Ultra figures for 2014.
The man, the legend, the incomparable Ric Flair has yet to be made in the WWE line. Please tell me he is not going to be limited to the MattyCollector store. WOOOOOOO!
We have no current plans for a Ric Flair figure on Mattycollector.com
It’s been a few years since the MOTUC line was launched. If you and the 4H could go back in time, what changes would you make to the likes of He-Man and Skeletor? For example would you give them double jointed knees/elbows, hinged wrists, et al?
It would be great to give He-Man improved articulation and this is something we could look into for 2016 and beyond once the vintage roadmap is complete.
With not enough fans to support the Infinite Earths subscription financially after next year, does this mean the DC 6″ figure license is up for grabs?
Not in the least. The DC 6″ scale is alive and well with the Total Heroes line. Basic figures are available at retail and Ultra figures in 6″ scale with additional piece count will be offered quarterly on Mattycollector.com!
