1.) Nicholai asks: Regarding Mattel’s plans for DCSH figures such as Steel, Bane, Mr. Freeze and so forth: should fans attempt to get those in the secondary market, or hold out for a re-release/new sculpt?
We would like to get to re-releases of these older figures in the near future, and we can confirm nothing is locked down for these specific characters in either 2010 or 2011.
2.) Dayraven asks: Why was there no â€œbioâ€ about the First Ultimate Battleground on the Weapons Pak box? I kind of figured it was a given that weâ€™d learn more about the UB from the pak, especially in light of the â€œEternian Secretsâ€ on the map.
The Weapons Pak is designed more as an avatar to let collectors customize their figures based on their imagination. There is no intended story behind the specific weapons. They are just meant to be fun.
3.) Barbecue17 asks: Why were the trademark stamps included on and so obvious on the Weapons Pak accessories? This wonâ€™t be a continuing trend, will it?
This is required by law, it is not a design choice.
4.) Paul asks: Iâ€™m very excited about the forthcoming Retro-Action Real Ghostbusters line. Do you have plans to expand it beyond our four heroes?
First, we have to see how the first four figures do, but we do have big plans if the line takes off!
5.) Joe asks: The Flash is experiencing a renaissance of sorts over at DC. Flash Rebirth, talks of a movie and next year, they have a major event called Flashpoint centered around him. Will we see more Flash-related DCUC figures anytime soon?
Yes, we have a lot more Flash-related figures in the hopper!
