Thanks to those fans for their help!
1. sailoruranus: Customer service has always been bad but the last few months it seems like Digital River has completely stopped responding to emails and phone calls. What are fans supposed to do when they receive a defective figure and have gone for weeks without a response from Digital River?
This is absolutely unfortunate and we will pass this comment along to DR. Return call time should be within 48 hours and we will work hard to improve this.
2. slackrguy: I really enjoyed the Mad Matty Mondays in 2011 and the excitement of not knowing what I was going to get. With the 2012 subscriptions down, are those Mad Matty Mondays gone for good or just less probable?
That is still up in the air. We will have to see how well the 2012 items sell at an overall reduced quota.
3. carafa: Will there will be a female character among the six 30th anniversary characters?
That is yet to be revealed. We have not yet picked the winner of the new contest yet and there were many female entries! And we are not ready to give details on Geoff or Terry's character.
4. Jean: 2011 and 2012 has finally given us some brand new art for our beloved franchise. However most of it, if not all appears to be digital art. Has Mattel considered having someone create some brand new art with more traditional methods?
We are constantly looking at new artists and new platforms for art. Anything is possible!
5. Fabulous: If and when you get to Dragon Blaster Skeletor, will he have a tasseled loincloth (like the cardback) or the furry loincloth (like the vintage toy)?
Some fans have proposed a removable tasseled loincloth much like Fisto's new belt. A great suggestion and one we will look into for when and if we get to him.
