What Do You Want Us To Ask At Toy Fair?

Toy Fair 2001

This weekend Toy Fair starts and ToyGodd and I will be there to cover as much as we can.


You, as our readers and friends, are an extremely important part of what we do, so we wanted to ask you:

What do you want to know and from who?


Let us know what questions you have burning on your tongue?

I know we will be talking to a lot of people and companies.

We hope to be doing interviews with the Four Horsemen, different people from Mattel, DC Direct, Hasbro etc…


So what would you like us to ask?  Also if it is not one of the big wheels in the industry but just a company you know about and are interested in let us know who they are and if they are there we will try to reach out.

Please make your questions as succinct as possible.

They can be pointed but courteous i.e.… Don’t ask us to ask questions that may get us into a fight. I don’t mind fighting but Umpire has asked me to refrain from hurting people while on official AFT business.

They can be funny or odd as well.


Thanks and look forward to reading.

    Doc, it’s probably pointless to ask Hasbro anthing but: 2 years ago they previewed (at either Toy Fair or SDCC) the Star Wars Darth Vader funeral pyre playset (with Luke holding a torch). They never produced it and gave some lame excuse/answer as to why not. Based on the amount of crappy repaints they’re churning out, and the fact that they had a record year profit-wise, are they willing to look at this set again and possibly bring it to market this year? I know there was a lot of interest when it was first shown.

    Thanks for asking…

    Alright , I will try and get an answer.

    Thanks for the question

    Feel free to use any of these requests in Q&A’s if that’s more appropriate.

    If EMCE is there, ask if they have plans to make more 8″ cloth Reto Universal Monsters beyond Dracula and Mummy. Especially would like a Creature From the Black Lagoon in that format.

    Also any new stuff from them especially the Retro Star Trek stuff.

    Hasbro: What’s the status of the 4″ Ironman 2 Comic series wave 4? Is Mandrin ever going to see the light of day at retail in the U.S.?

    Will there be a comic series in the 4″ Thor line?

    What happened to MU Gigantic Battles? Are we still getting the Frost Giant and Bill Foster Giant Man?

    When can we expect a MU Invisible Woman? I know it’s now the Fantastic Three, but Sue Richards is still alive.

    Any new info to share about Marvel Legends?

    Mattel: Will the DCUC figures ever get the articulation back in the head (nodding)and ankles (rocking)? It seems like corners are being cut with the articulation with no price adjustment and the DCUC figures have lost some valuable possibility let alone the ability to even stand correctly.

    Any new DCUC waves or sub waves on display?

    DC RetroAction Heroes. Is there any way Mattel can make the torso part added to wave 3 available so that fans can fix their figures from waves 1 & 2?

    Any new DC RetroAction waves/Matty exclusives shown?

    Fisher Price: Any chance some female heroes/villains will be added to the Imaginext line? My daughters love them and would enjoy seeing characters such as Wonder Woman, Super Girl, Bat Girl, Cat Woman, and Poison Ivy. Green Lantern’s jet would make a great Invisible Jet.

    If Bif Bang Pow is there, information on any of their retro 8″ lines.

    How are the preorders on the Lost wave 2 going? Are they still in danger of being cancelled?

    Mattel, since Robin and a few others in DCUC wave 16 had the worst in QC. Are you gonna fix those figures? What are you gonna do about this QC problem. It getting out of hand. Thanks

    i would love to know If Hasbro would ever reconsider doing a death star maybe as a build a piece thing. my second question. is if Mattel ever does get the okay for swamp thing would they consider just either giving him his own dcwave or maybe putting him in a wave with some of the characters who did not win the fan poll like Rag man? my last question when is Mattel going to get around to the Sorceress?

  6. rxw67 February 10, 2011 at 5:43 am ·

    any chance for DCUC figures of:
    lois lane
    perry white
    jimmy olsen
    clark kent
    bruce wayne
    commissioner gordon
    mr mytzptlk
    i really would love to see a figure of the little guy!
    (maybe 2-pack him with bat-mite or similar?)

    now that the Christian Bale Batman has seen “movie master” treatment, as well as the Ghostbusters, what OTHER licenses are being done for market, are currently in design, are being considered, or are being negotiated for “movie master” treatment? are there any licenses on your “wishlist” to acquire?
    (for instance, will any of the other Batman movies get the “master” treatment? or how about any of the Superman movies? can we look forward to seeing those in “master” treatment? or any other license properties?)

    PLease make the figures, Mattel, that are on the back of the packaging for the Batman B&B Chemo
    in your new action league line

    Please find out what characters McFarlane is making for the Walking Dead.
    Also, see if Miggle Toys is ever going to get the NFL License back.
    Thanks, and have a great time in the Big Apple.

      The show opens soon. McFarlane is one of our first stops. I will see.

    My question is will the “Star Sapphire” Wonder Woman in DCUC17 be the same size of the DCUC3 Wonder Woman or will she be the small size of Star Sapphire in Green Lantern Classics Series 2.

  10. ThunderCat78 February 12, 2011 at 5:11 pm ·

    I want to know everything and anything you can possibly fin out about the ThunderCats re-launch. If there is any way to record footage of the new animation, I’d be dying to see that.

    • Toygodd February 13, 2011 at 1:47 pm ·

      I have an appt. Monday afternoon. I will check on that at Ban-Dai.

    Bandai U.S.A. with the release of IDW’s new Godzilla comic book next month and the Legendary Pictures upcoming U.S. made Godzilla film. Do they plan on any more Godzilla and Toho figures different Kaiju and new sculpts? Not just repaints in their six inch and 11 inch figure lines, they to sell very well. Seem like a good time for more U.S.A. released product, to be coming soon.

    • Toygodd February 13, 2011 at 1:46 pm ·

      I have an appt. tomorrow afternoon. I will see what they say.

  12. Robert Bontrager February 13, 2011 at 9:02 pm ·

    Any new Lazer Tag products from Hasbro this year? If so, please post some picts!
