Ask Matty – 4/1/10

Well, it is April Fool’s day and it appears that is a bit of a theme for this round of answers. Toy Guru and Matty are hard at work getting ready for the SDCC Exclusive reveals coming up soon, so they let the Jokers shake their Magic 8 Balls for the answers this time around. Real Matty answers or Faker Matty answers? Hmm…

1. Last year during the Matty SDCC presentation the MOTUC Army Builder 2-packs were mentioned (there was even a slide in the presentation). It has now been 8 months since then and there hasn’t been a hint of this SKU. Can we expect these 2-packs to be revealed any time soon? We need some Horde Troopers, Royal Guards, and Snakemen!

Yes definitely.

2. The way that you and the Horsemen have systematically built a library of bucks for DCUC over a series of waves has worked very well for the line, but there is an ongoing need for even more variety in body types. Without giving away any specific character plans, can you tell us what new type of bucks might be introduced over the coming year?

Reply hazy try again.

3. While the original Classic Detective Batman sculpt is great, it has been reused MULTIPLE times with every subsequent Batman figure. Will this be case for the life of the line or can we expect a new Batman sculpt? A lot of collectors feel it has been used enough and it is time for an update. Thanks.


4. When a small team is started in DCUC (i.e. Doom Patrol, Metal Men) is the whole team planned out in advance for up coming waves (ex: Gold wave 14, Tin wave 16, etc) or is it more ” we have them planned for some time in the future but nothing is set, we’ll get to them eventually”?

Don’t count on it.

5. Since Catra was often shown with her mask on her face, on her forehead and off completely, will you engineer the mask so that it CLIPS on rather than plug into a big hole in her forehead like She-Ra?

Without a doubt.

… So, are these the real answers or a playful ruse in the spirit of the day? Stay tuned, if we get any further information, we will post it up!
