1.) Chrissy asks: Could the next Skeletor variation (Terror Claws, Dragon Blaster, etc.) use Kobra Khans forearms and shins? This would alleviate some of the fatigue of getting another standard Skeletor body with new gear. And it would look great with Demo-Man’s freaky Alfredo Alcala styled Skeletor head.
This is something we have discussed with the Four Horsemen. Only time will tell!
2.) Wally2974 asks: Is there any chance with the Batman Legacy line being so popular that we might se some sort of re-release of BatSignal Batman? At the very least I’d love another crack at getting my hands on a working Bat Signal.
While we don’t have plans for this type of re-release we are looking into other ways of getting this much requested set piece out to fans. Stay tuned.
3.) KillerBHive asks: Is it possible for Mattel (or Digital River) to look into a rollover system for subs, similiar to Big Bad Toy Store’s “Pile of Loot” where they hold items for you until you want them to ship? For example, I bought the Club Ecto-1 and Club Lion Force sub, and while both are scheduled to release their first items in January, delays can throw them off and then I’d have to pay shipping for each sub separately and any non-sub items that may be offered day of sale.
We actually did offer this in 2009 and their was so little interest that we did not continue this program after.
4.) FakeEyes22 asks: Voltron is unique in that unlike the previous subscriptions, we know the entire lineup next year, but there is no existing product to base opinions on or grant confidence. This sub is a rather huge and expensive leap of faith. Where I’m going with this is, now that the sub deadline has passed and the final product has moved along more, what else can you tell us about the 2012 Voltron that goes beyond photos and a short video–can we get a word from someone who has had some hands-on impressions from either developing or personally interacting with the toy?
Essentially the epic scale Voltron is the toy we have all waited for! Pop out transformation, pilots that fit into the Lions, flaming sword, the whole thing! This will truly be the Voltron toy you have been waiting for and we aim to deliver..
5.) Mysterious Stranger asks: Will the lower production numbers on MOTUC in 2012 affect the non-sub items like vehicles and weapons packs, i.e., will these be made in sufficient quantity to satisfy subscribers (like myself) and the sale day “cherry pickers”?
We are well aware of what the baseline is for all MOTUC items and will take that into account for non sub items.
