The February 1 answers have arrived early! Enjoy. –Poe
1.) Mario asks: Will a new retail or MattyCollector toy line be revealed at NYTF?
We will have new SKUs in existing lines, but we will not be introducing any all-new lines or brands at NYTF.
2.) Novelty asks: Does Mattel still have the original recipe to the slime from Slime Pit?
Yes, but it is top secret!
3.) Rusty Shackleford asks: Fans have expressed interest in getting more characters from Batman Beyond in DCUC. Any chance of this?
Yes, we do have more plans for Batman Beyond characters.
4.) Rich asks: Could I suggest a two-pack idea along these lines that could save you some tooling costs? A Dick Grayson Robin with a Super Powers repaint Penguin (you know, blue tails and rainbow umbrella…) and the robot penguin we’ve seen in prototype.
This is a good idea, but the Robot Penguin was never tooled, so it would be a bit expensive to do for a two-pack.
5.) Thomas asks: Will we ever see the all-gold modern version of Dr. Fate?
We did make a running change to Dr. Fate, but it appears at this time it may not have made it to stores. The request for change came a bit late and production may have been completed. We do have a few carded samples at Mattel so the change did happen.
