Ask Mattel 6/3/2013: Mattel’s Plans For Battlestar Galactica, Vertigo & Club FilmMation

By bill - June 3, 2013

MattelMattel is back with more answers, as we learn the fate of the freshman Watchmen toy line, plus get details on Battlestar Galactica, Vertigo toys and more. Read on for the answers!

Kastor’s Korner: Is the classic Battlestar Galactica license for the upcoming SDCC exclusives only for Hot Wheels, or may this lead to other Galactica toys from Mattel?

Mattel: At this time it is only a Hot Wheels license for Mattel.

Kastor’s Korner: Would you ever consider a Weapons Pak or special battle stands as a Comic Con or traveling exclusive? Including accessories from past exclusives, such as Strobo’s gun, seem like they would be a good fit for a Con exclusive Weapons set.

Mattel: A cool idea but nothing like this to announce right now.

Kastor’s Korner: Will the clip being used to hold Castaspella’s magic wheel keep it at the intended height? From the photography it appears that the center of the wheel should be along the middle of her back, not at the waist.

Mattel: We hope so. We don’t have final samples back yet.

Kastor’s Korner: Are Club FilmMation and Club Black Freighter both considered “one and done” subscriptions, or might we see a second year of either?

Mattel: We definitely won’t be offering a second year of Watchmen figures. Day of sales and subscriptions have just not met expectations to expand this line. As for more Filmation characters and or subs, you will need to wait and see!

Kastor’s Korner: 2012 saw the release of several Vertigo brand characters, but they have been lighter in 2013– with a Vertigo-themed movie supposedly in development, can we expect to see more characters from this corner of the DC Universe in the near future?

Mattel: We do have plans for more Vertigo figures bur nothing specific to announce right now.
