The Ask Matty segment totally blindsided me today as I guess they wanted to get them out of the way prior to the holiday weekend. None the less it’s always nice to get some questions answered on a slow Friday. Today we delve into the important current issues: Castle Greyskullman’s hair, Power Con Surprises, and Skeletor’s origin.
So sit back and relax, enjoy the weekend and read the answers.
[box style=”note”]Q: Regarding the surprise accessory that will be handed out at Power-Con, it says in the announcement that it will be available first there … does this mean it will see a release as a pack in somewhere down the line?
A: Yes, we have more units than we expect to give out at Power Con so likely it will also be given out somewhere else in the future.
Q: With the DC Comics MOTU Origin of Skeletor coming out this year, and the mini-comic next year being Skeletor’s origin as well I assume the two are probably going to be very different?
A: Yes, they are both quite different.
Q: Skeletor gets a lot of different origin stories that have been told throughout the years, is the mini comic going to specifically tie in to the MOTUC bio’s we continue to read?
A: Yes, the mini comic will be in the bios cannon.
Q: Has there been a verdict on the final hair color of Castle Greyskullman? He was shown with very blonde, almost Hulkamania hair … but you had mentioned it was probably going to be whiter in production?
A: It is more green and white than yellow. We will have a close to final sample at Power Con and NYCC.
Q: Will Ram Man’s neck peg be the same as all the other figures in the line so I can stick a Whiplash head on him if I want to?
A: Yes, the neck peg on Ram Man is the same as every other fig.
There you have it folks, another Ask Matty in the bag! Good news on the Power-Con accessory, however I kinda liked the blonde Castle Greyskullman … but you can’t win them all. Have a great Labor Day weekend and we’ll try to keep you updated throughout!
