1.) As I understand it, the first Four Horsemen-sculpted Arkham City figure will be Harley Quinn. Will the Horsemen be sculpting any future Arkham City figures as well?
Yes, they will be sculpting future figs.
2.) Way back when, we were told that the Sinestro Corps Batman produced in DCUC would eventually appear in an upcoming comics storyline, and there was even some original art produced for the pin. However, we have yet to see this version of Batman appear in the comics. Was that storyline scrapped, or is a comics appearance of this Batman still forthcoming?
According to DC the storyline is still coming. We are waiting as much as you are!
3.) GDTFan asks: Can you explain the structuring of the DC team? It seems very atypical that a person from the marketing dept would be in charge of an entire product line.
There are many, many people involved in the creation of the DC Universe action figures, including Marketing, Design, Engineering, and Packaging. It just tends to be the marketing folks who are the “face” to the collectors online.
4.) Leo Nydas asks: If you’re comfortable reusing the same body for all 4 ghostbusters even though they have different body types, why are you hesitant to reuse parts for Back to the Future? It seems like via repaints the same pants could be 1985 jeans, 1955 jeans, and even dress pants.
We actually looked very carefully at all three movies and Marty does not wear the same clothes. Each movie version would need a 100% new figure to be movie accurate. This is one of the factors that makes a figure line difficult. The high tooling cost and low shared parts.
5.) What can we expect to see at NYCC this year?
A lot of new figures for all of our collector lines. Specifics are still being locked down so we don’t have anything to announce yet.
