1.) Extremely nerdy question: Now that we’re getting a He-Man/Superman 2-pack at retail, does that mean the events of DC Comics Presents #47 are canon in the MOTUC universe–or is this a “What If?” scenario?
There actually isnâ€™t an official 100% canon for MOTU. Each tale, whether told in a movie, TV series, comic book, toy bio or your imagination is its own story and equally valid. [Poe’s note — I was asking whether this story was canon in the specific MOTUC canon they’re building in the bios.]
2.) Is there any chance of other DC/MOTU collaborations now–perhaps a trade paperback reissue of the original DC 3-issue MOTU miniseries, or even a new MOTUC comic series?
This is something we are looking into but nothing to announce quite yet.
3.) DO4M asks: We were told that a â€œ200Xâ€ He-Man redeco would get a painted harness and the 200X sword from MAA/Weapons Pack, but no â€œ200X/MYPâ€ head. Does this mean that He-Variants that have a different head (hairstyle) like NA He-Man or Laser Power He-Man will get the â€œvintage hairstyleâ€ MOTUC He-Man head instead of a head based on their toy?
For characters who had a different hair style, such as a pony tail, we would add that but otherwise, He-Manâ€™s head will stay the same in one unique, classic look. We won’t be adding any “anime flair” or “200X” look with the hyper details to MOTUC. That style is retired.
4.) Nik asks: In regards to the 6″ Ghostbusters line, I am looking forward to slimed Peter and Commercial Ray, but when can we expect some villains? I really would like a Vigo figure and an in-scale painting if possible.
This is something we are very excited for as well. We are offering Walter Peck this summer â€“ he is a villain â€“ of sorts! He did release all the ghosts in the containment units after all!
5.) Barbecue17 asks: In a recent interview with Fwoosh, Toyguru commented that fans did not purchase enough of the Mattycollector DCUC 2 packs to warrant more being made. Hereâ€™s my question: If these figures arenâ€™t sold out, and Matttel is concerned with the sales numbers, why are they removed from Mattycollector so long before the summer conventions? It would seem logical to continue offering fans a chance to purchase these figures at their convenience rather than limit sales to a designated period. With the high cost of shipping, I can certainly understand fans who would prefer to make a quarterly purchase from Mattycollector and save on some shipping.
We do have a few unclaimed customer service units of some of the sold-out items and indeed we will bring them to SDCC with us or offering them again on Mattycollector.com down the road.
