We’re back with another round of questions with Mattel’s “ToyGuru,” Scott Neitlich!
PG: The classic-suit, be-mulleted Superman in DCUC Wave Six looks great. Given that the Eradicator figure in Wave Five has a classic-looking Supes head, is it possible we’ll see a new classic Superman with the short-hair look–perhaps as a Mattycollector.com exclusive?
SN: Definitely something we are looking into.
With the DCUC case packs moving up from six figures to ten per case, will there be a greater likelihood that by ordering a case, collectors will be able to get all the variants in a given wave?
The variants will continue to be chase figures. The extra spots in the case packs will be filled with All Star figures on re-released cards such as Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Batman. Our goal is to keep new figures coming for collectors while having the big 7 at retail for the casual buyer or the “Mom” purchase.
When will the Movie Master Batpod ship to Target?
It should be on shelf now.
As of right now, does Mattel have any set plans for Movie Masters beyond the Nolan Batman films?
Nothing to announce quite yet but we have big plans in the works.
Any possibility of a Mattycollector.com exclusive space-motorcycle for Lobo?
Not at this time.
