Now that the cat's out of the bag in regards to the second MOTUC SDCC Exclusive, can you tell us about the whole Prince Adam as an accesory thing and what exactly was the strategy or motivation to do this? Was it just a simple prank or something else?
In regards to the two heads that come with Prince Adam, will the non-smiling head be an identical He-Man head or a slightly different expression?
We knew most fans expected Orko to be Adam's accessory so flip flopping them was just something to add a little fun and unexpected into the line!
Will a 200X Prince Adam be released as a bonus figure in the near future?
The non-smirking head is the same as He-Man's head.
We were hoping that this year's SDCC Exclusive for Ghostbusters was going to be an in-scale Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Is that figure still a possibility?
Possibly down the road but nothing is in production at this point. That would be a good quarterly figure concept.
Are you going to continue offering only Ghostbuster movie figures in the 6" scale throughout 2010 or will the line expand into animated this year?
It is still something we are working on. It just takes finding the right way of doing it. We are committed to making this happen one day!
For 2010, the plan is to continue "movie style" figures in 6-inch and a new Retro Action line in animated style at TRU in the fall (starting with a SDCC exclusive of Peter in Citizen Ghost colors!). This does not discount doing other scales and styles for either movie or animated style in the future. There are a lot of great GB toys we want to get to! We're just getting started.
