No more wasting time, then! Let's get right to the questions:
Hi Faker Matty. My first question involves the Brave and the Bold toyline. Batman the Brave and the Bold is an excellent cartoon with tons of well designed and appealing male and female characters, and I'm willing to wager plenty of female fans too, but the toyline is a sausage-fest. Will we ever see female characters in the toyline?
FM: Bubbashelby, our research & development team have chronic social issues and have never known the touch of the fairer sex. Thus, girl toys are yucky, and tough boys don't play with dollies.
Adora sold out in, what, sixteen seconds? Skeletor has sold out on three separate "releases." MOTUC seems to be extremely popular and gaining momentum by the day, yet you claimed early on that it couldn't possibly survive at retail. What gives?
FM: Our newest method of estimating quantities is to increase the run by 10 figures each release. Babysteps. Since we keep selling out, we know for sure that we are still not producing too many figures. We just don't have any idea how many we could be selling. That means......we couldn't possibly survive at re...tail?
I thought JLU was a Target exclusive line, yet people are starting to find them at Big Lots (some are even finding ultra HTF packs like the Cheetah release.) How can this be?
FM: We can't control what happens outside our offices. Sometimes whole shipments of figures end up at the wholesale fruit auctions at the docks.
Faker Matty, you claimed you would give a prize when your fan page reached 100 fans, but it seems to have stalled out closer to ninety. Is this a deliberate act to save you from having to fulfill your promise to your fans?
FM: We keep our numbers under control by banning fans who question our policies. Note: Bubbashelby was just banned and the MattyImpostor fan page count went down to 87.
Faker Matty, I found the ultra cool Hotwheels Ecto-1 recently, only later to discover it is going to be a smaller run than most Hotwheel cars. Is it true Mattel has a company wide product release formula: Mattel Toys = 1/2X (wherein X = Product folks want) + 300Y (wherein Y = Product no one wants.) This formula would certainly explain the amount of Avatar product produced.
FM: Again, we can't control what happens inside our own offices either. We feel that mathematics is for scientists, not product marketing analytics specialists.
Faker Matty, 2010 already has a PoP and a New Adventures figure scheduled in the MOTUC line. Can we expect any other non MOTU proper surprises in the upcoming months?
FM: We thought we would make a figure based on a stupid 30 second skit from a Seth Green claymation instead of making more relevant characters.
Faker Matty, what is the meaning of life?
FM: We can't answer that at this time.
Faker Matty, does the "Infinite" in DC Infinite Heroes stand for how high you are willing to raise the price?
FM: We resent that remark, as well as comments such as, "Crisis on Multiple Repaints".
Does the "Universe" in DC Universe Classics stand for how far I need to travel to complete any one wave?
FM: SIGGGHHHHHHHHH...I've answered this beforrrrre...But I GUESSS I'll answer it agaiiinnnnnnnn....We can't be responsible for distribution blah blah blah...
Last question; is there a Mrs. Faker Matty?
FM: Yes, and she may or may not support my social media policy.
Thanks again FM! See you in
