There has been a lot of talk about Gygor being a re-tooled DCUC Gorilla Grodd and I completely disagree. Can you help lay these rumors to rest and share more details with us regarding this new 2010 MOTUC bonus figure?
It was great to see that we will be getting two brand new 200x-based figures (Marzo and Keldor) during the first half of 2010. Can we look forward to any additional characters that only appeared in the MYP series this year?As announced at NYTF, Gygor is a 100% new tool. He does not share any parts with Gorilla Grodd.
You have previously stated that Orko would be released in 2010 but not as a Comi-Con exclusive. Due to the size of this character, it would not be logical to release him on a blister card like the other MOTUC figures so will he be packed in with another figure or sold as a separate SKU for small scaled figures?We can't comment on how many will come out in 2010, but we do have plans for a lot more 2002 series figures as the line continues!
The Castle Grayskull diorama bases are a great display option for the MOTUC line but many fans have stated that the bases should have included a higher quantity of pegs. Will you be catering to this request when they are re-released or will you make additional pegs available via customer service or mattycollector.com later this year?First off, we have not made any comments on who is and who is not our SDCC figure (not that anyone should jump to conclusions on this one, we just want to clear the air here!). As for how Orko will be released, you'll just have to wait and see. What we did say previously is that BY San Diego Comic-Con you will see Orko and know how he will be released.
Now that Peter Venkman is finally scheduled to release later this year, when can fans look forward to a re-release of Egon and what accessory or deco changes will he have?We won't be re-tooling the Grayskull stands, but as we look into developing new stands down the line we will take these suggestions into consideration.
You'll have to stay tuned. We do have more Egon figures in the works!
