TNI: Are there any plans for Mattel to go back and do figures based on the old Super Friends cartoon?
Mattel: No plans are set, but again, we are looking into this possibility. There is large fan demand for this, and we do have access to these characters.
TNI: Is there a list of DC characters that WB has given you that you CANNOT do as 6" figures, and if so can you tell us who those characters are?
Mattel: Aside from some characters that have legal issues surrounding them (Charlton characters for example), we do not have access to certain “adult” figures that are too violent for a toy aisle (such as Lobo).
TNI: DC Comics recently announced that they were going to do a comic book based on the new DC Super Friends. Since this line was created by Mattel, will you all be working closely with DC on this and if so how? Wonder Woman is on the cover of the first issue, does this mean a Wonder Woman figure will be released soon?
Mattel: Just because a character appears in the comic line does not indicate it will also be in the toy line (as a base rule). This does not rule the Amazon Princess out, and we are well aware of the fan demand for this figure in the Super Friends style.
TNI: Are the Four Horsemen doing the sculpting for the Build-A-Figures in the 6" line, and how does sculpting a Build-A-Figure differ from sculpting a regular figure?
Mattel: Yes, the Four Horsemen are sculpting the build-a-figures. The only difference is that the BAF needs to break up into 5 separate pieces, and we asked them to make it at least 25% bigger then a standard figure.
