Welcome to another edition of the MattyCollector 2014 Q&A! Without further ado, here are answers to the questions we sent off earlier this month:
What will the Production values be on the 6 figures Planned for Sept and Oct? By that I mean is it possible that they will sell out before DC Fans can get the like the CIE figures?
It is always possible figures can sell out during EA but it is not a sure thing.
Your way cool Super Powers 30th Anniversary surprise brings to mind another 30th Anniversary = Masters of the Universe. You pulled the near-impossible by giving fans a huge new Grayskull. Mattel accomplished it, in the face of the post Great Recession. You did it seemingly with the nifty help of the Pre-Meter. Like Grayskull, can you put a Super Powers 30th Anniversary Pre-Meter, for a equally huge Hall of Justice? Perhaps join forces with Total Heroes the retail line, to advertise it as something like a mail-away, available only at MattyCollector.com?
We definitely do not have plans for a Hall of Justice playset at this time. If we can’t sell tier 1 of the basic DCU figures (in the sub) we will not be in a position to explore large Epic Creation items. One of the reasons that door was more open on the MOTUC brand for a playset was because MOTUC has sold the basic figures at the tier 2 level year after year.
This may be the wrong place to ask, but is there a reason the MattyCollector store does not accept Paypal?
Yes, we tried Paypal years ago and fan overwhelmingly asked us to remove it as an option do to it being too slow.
Now that the regular Total Heroes line has a female buck(Wonder Woman), which female characters would lend themselves better for the Total Heroes Ultra line instead of the regular Total Heroes line?
There are countless females in the DC Universe that we could now do in either the retail or Ultra line with the addition of the female buck. Likely the more well known the character the more likely she would be in the retail line. The less well known females (and males) would be in the online line. You can use the 2014 line as a litmus test noting Hal Jordan in the retail line and Tomar Re/John Steward/Greenman in the online offerings.
