Ask Matty Q&A for 10/26

1-Can you provide details on the Walmart listing for a Batman 6 pack, is this a all-in-one box set or something else? (link-
This is a offering created to let Batman fans collect the entire The Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters assortment in one purchase

2-Will subscribers continue to get emails of announcements as they are happening like Power-con for NYCC and in 2013?
This is something we hope to do, but no plans at this time.

3-The planned thermometer for Castle Greyskull, how often will it be updated? Can it reflect daily pre-orders?
We will likely update it daily.

4- Will the subscriber bonus for Frosta be a new tooled piece or some form of repaint/accessory?
That is unknown at this time. We are still reviewing concepts.  

5-When should we expect to see the upcoming Super Powers Penguin hit retail, is there a street date for these or will replace the movie line at retail?
Penguin is in the first mix of Batman Unlimited, so you should see this figure hitting shelves in early 2013.

Ask Matty Q&A for 10/1

Will a Adam West Style Batmobile be coming to go along with the upcoming figure line?
It is something we are looking into but no plans to announce right now

Any update on the subscriber Slimer piece?
Yes, he ships to GB 2012 sub holders in Oct.
The last wave of Action League featuring Character with accessories (ie- Batman, Larfleeze, etc) have these shipped to retail? Limited amount has been seen online
Yes, they have shipped

Many of the Mattycollector Exclusives (12" Superman, Green Lantern, Ghosbusters) have been found at retail bargain outlets. Can you provide any details and whether we may see more of this?
Older Matty inventory is being moved out to make room for new items. No bigger story. We are however reducing quotas going forward and no longer doing second runs so that future product has cleaner sell throughs and will not be showing up anywhere else. 

The early listing of September Snakemen and DB Skeletor on Mattycollector was clearly a mistake, but seems to speak to the persistent problems with Digital River. How does this occur and why not honor orders placed?
It was a simple mistake and those "orders" were not "honored" because it is not fair to sub holders for a few accidental orders to trump them getting their figures first. Our customers are a smart bunch
