Ask Matty Q&A for 3/15

With the New Thunderpunch He-man was there ever thoughts to make the cap sound feature work?
No. Current safety regulations do not allow this. 

The leaked MOTU art from the comic is great. Previously the MOTU comic was special for the anniv, any hope to continue it?
The leak was not intentional and ideally will not repeat itself. The comic is already printed (as shown at NYTF) and we want fans to experience it first as a complete project, not as early pencils. Fine to see the "in progress" version in time, but we want to get the final version out first. 

Any update on the yellow of Staypuft from NYTF?
Not yet. But we are actively working with our vendors on this issue.
The DC Action League Flashpoint wave has hit retail, when would the next wave be expected and the TRU box set?
Should be hitting stores any week now. 
Is the BTTF pre-order 6" scale hoverboard soley and incentive or show progress towards a figure line?
There is no 6" MM line planned at this time. It is a one time bonus accessory.

Ask Matty Q&A for 3/1

Is the MAA Arm cannon to large/expensive to be in possibly the next planned weapons pack?
That is yet to be determined, but as of now the weapons pak does not have any tooling allocated. So it is not a question of size vs. tooling. 

Is the possible re-run of Windraiders for SDCC, separate from any planned SDCC MOTU exclusive?

When will the Ghostbusters bonus/incentive that has been talked about be know, I don’t recall an answer from NYTF. 
It was supposed to be announced at NYTF but was delayed. We should have info to post any day/week now.  

We need the Super-powers Penguin- at Toyfair you noted it was from a cancelled 2 pack. Any chance for this in 2012, or will it be later?
We are just waiting to confirm any retailer orders. As soon as we have some we can move forward.   

When might the reveal for the remaining 3 Batman movie masterpieces be? Will this line be at retail?
This will hit retail in May and we will reveal the remaining 3 figures around the same time.
