1). How does Mattels production numbers of DCSH figures compare to the original comic inspired line of 2003? DCSH seems to be harder to find at Retail are retailers not ordering as much or is Mattel producing less product?

2). Man-Bat was an SDCC exclusive, but a brown version was shown on the DCSH card backs. Since the SDCC version was white and in an electronic box, why not go ahead and produce a brown Man-Bat for the regular DCSH line. After all, previous SDCC Batman figures were based on the regular Batman figures in then current lines and even The Batmans Catwoman was repainted for a TRU exclusive set. Why not do the same for Man-Bat?

3). Kenner / Hasbro did Anniversary Batman figures, i.e. 100th Batman figure, 200th Batman figure. By now we should be well over 500 Batman figures, so any new special editions in the future?

What's the policy on missing pieces from a figure. I bought the black/gray Batman last week and to my surprise, he was missing his boot print from his right leg. Is there a way I can get that specific part sent to me?

1)will we see those clear plastic flying stands similar to the ones that came with marvel legends at all in DCUC?

2)will we see box-sets (teen titans, batman's rogue gallery, etc.) in DCUC?

3)will we see the re-release of hard to find characters (supergirl, two-face, clayface, etc) during the course of DCUC?

4) after the dark knight toyline has ended, will batman get his own seperate line, to help lesser known characters get in DCUC's assortments? if so, would it be combined with superman similar to DCSH and perhaps named "World's Finest"? (you can have that idea).

Okay, please read the other Q&A's..

answer to #2:

BYTB: Will boxed sets be done, similar to ML?

MATTEL: Nothing to announce quite yet, but this is something we are looking into for late 08. Keep in mind that this line has yet to hit stores so any larger items will depend on how well the basic figures do at retail. If there is demand this is clearly something we would consider.


I'm compiled all of them here:

To Chris:

I notice you took down the notation that you sent him the link to where they said 3 heroes and 3 villians... Does that mean that the statement was erronious?

If not, will he actually answer my question this time? (as he didn't answer it last time I believe it should be sent along side the other 3 questions like you did with the Attack Armour question last round if that's at all possible)

To Mattel:

1. My local Wal-mart has taken down all Mattel toys, and that probably has something to do with the recall; so is there anything Mattel is doing to try and get there toys back on store shelves beyond having customers come in and request Mattel figures.

2. Are there any plans for better online distibution so people like me who can't get your toys at local stores can get them?

Well Mattel will not answer anything about unannounced figures. So Ill take a guess.

Yes, to The Batman Harley Quinn. She was in BTAS and TNBA so shell show up in The Batman, maybe even as an SDCC Exclusive.

Maybe, to The Batman in the Lead Lined costume. They repainted an Anti-Freeze The Batman to match the look of the show, so doing yet another variant is not such a big deal.

No, to Phosphorus. Hes almost a one shot villain so he may never be seen again, so no figure.

Thats a good point that we got Temblor and Metal Head (the name of the figure was different than Gear Head in the TV show), but I still dont think we get Phosphorous.

I'm not saying to do it for the same reason, I'm saying to do it because they chose to answer that one and if the answer they gave was erronious then I think we deserve the real one.

Those would be cool. Ive been playing around with ideas to have flying displays. So far my best idea is a Desk Spindle, its a thin pointed spike with a round base that sits on a desk and you punch paper and receipts and stuff over it.

I could drill a small hole into the foot of a figure or underside of a Batplane and slide it onto the spike. The only thing is these things are usually black, not clear.

OK, so I thought why not try the idea I just posted. It took only a few minutes and Superman seemed a logical choice.

I drilled a small pilot divot so I had a place to catch the drill. Then I drilled a deeper hole at an angle into the foot until I felt it push through. I did not see it come out, my guess is it is hidden by the joint. Then I dilled the bigger hole to match the spindle size and slide teh foot on over the Spindle



Then I had to bend the Spindle. I bent it down one way at an angle near the base then bent it back the other way trying to curve it higher on the Spindle to try and center the base under the figure so it would balance.



Its not perfect, but its not too bad either. I could have used a vise and pliers to bend it, but it was all done by hand in a few minutes.

OK, lets get back on track with another question about an issue that ticks me off.

On Box Set Multi Packs, can you put in more than just ONE EXCLUSIVE FIGURE?

I saw tonight a new TRU set with Five Re-Releases and One exclusive repaint of Catwoman in green. I passed on it as those have a high price point. There have aloes been other 4 packs with only one new figure. This is annoys me to no end. At least half the set, if not more should be exclusive figures.
