Ask Mattel – Answers for December 3rd, 2012

Mattel Mattycollector Logo

Brandon Asks: When the C&C Nekron was released, it was indicated that you guys would work hard to find a way to release the Scythe, which didn’t cost out at the time. Is this still in the works or should DCUC fans be trying to get the DC Direct accessory or finding something workable elsewhere?

We’re always looking into way to release older items. Sometimes it takes months, other times years, but we do try!



Black Arbor asks: I don’t expect as diverse a character selection as DC Universe Classics at retail ever again, but will the Batman unlimited/ DC unlimited lines have a good selection of characters (both heroes and villains) and not just variations of main characters?

It may not be as diverse as DCUC because it will concentrate on more well known figures with the more collector aimed figures available online on every month!



SuperPowersFan asks: The Super Powers Penguin figure is excellent! I’m very glad you guys are still giving us our Super Powers updates. Any chance that Super Powers Superman and Wonder Woman might pop up again? And that we might see a Super Powers Batman down the line?

We are big fans of this but no plans right now.



David asks: Since you guys made John Constantine, is there any chance of a Spider Jerusalem figure, or any figures from the Fables comic book popping up in the sub in the future?

Sure there is a chance. But nothing to announce right now.



Nathan asks: Since Castle Grayskull far exceeded the pre-order minimum, are you already writing up your pitch for the Snake Mountain pre-order for management, or do you have to wait until next December after Castle Grayskull has already gone on sale?

Right now we are concentrating on the Castle.



That’s it for this round. Join us again for the December 17th Q&A session, and be on the lookout for the form to submit your questions for that round soon!

  1. Thanks for asking my question, John! the reason I asked that question is cuz I really, really, REALLY want a Ventriloquist w/ Scarface, and I don’t want to subscribe to a ferschlugginer club to get it!

    • You never know. I’m willing to bet if and when they get to Ventriloquist, he’ll be sold online. The great thing is though, you don’t have to sign up for the sub to get him. You could just log onto Mattycollector on the day of sale and pick him up there, but then you run the risk of him selling out before you get a chance to buy him.
