Any plans for an Ecto-1 to go with the current figures? Thanks.

DSTChuck: We would like to do one at some point, crossing my fingers.


Shane M.
Any chance of doing Extreme Ghostbusters figures, ghosts from RGB like mainly the People Busters and vehicles from the animated lines?

DSTChuck: Right now we are focused on GB2 and the two series of RBG figures, so we’ll have to see after that.


Jamie M.
Hello, just wondering how many waves of Pulp Fiction you plan and when you think we will have all the figures by (late 2018 etc.). Also, a hint as to when we can see series two.
Thanks for your time (I LOVE wave one by the way).

DSTChuck: We’d like to do several series, but right now that will all depend on how approvals and sales go. Glad you like the first series!

Hi, I have been collecting the Batman, Superman and Justice League animated busts. The line has been great and I am very happy with the products. Most of the main characters have been released but there are still a few out there. With BTAS, do you know if you will be making a Clayface, Mad Hatter and Killer Croc bust? Will you be doing a line from the New Batman Animated Adventures? And my last question, I see that there is a Wonder Woman bust coming out, any chance that you will be doing the Black Canary and The Huntress?

DSTChuck: We do have a few more busts planned, and after that we’ll have to see how the sales hold up. We’re big fans of the shows, so we’d love nothing more than keep it going.


Dean G.
Will you make old Pacific Rim kaiju (e.g Slattern)?

DSTChuck: Right now, we’re not sure how much we will do from the first movie, so we’ll see how it goes.

Is there a possibility of a line of Space Balls Figures?

DSTChuck: Unfortunately, I have been told it is not possible to make those.


Greig C.
Huge fan of your Muppets figures and have noticed they have dropped off the latest Shipping Update list. Please tell me they are still coming?!?

DSTChuck: We would love to find a way to make S4 work. Hopefully we can sell what we have on the past series and get more retailers committed to the line.

By any chance are you guys going to do anymore Gotham figures for season 4? If you guys do I recommend a figure for scarecrow.

DSTChuck: We’re taking a “wait and see” on how the ratings are for the show and how our latest series sells in stores.

There is wide demand for a quality TNG tricorder, with fans resorting to cumbersome kits to try to kludge their own. Heck, the design even inspired an XPrize competition. Why not make the definitive replica to round out your Star Trek lineup?

DSTChuck: Right now, we have no plans for a TNG Tricorder.


David P.
Can we have a hint of what Batman 1966 busts are next?

DSTChuck: They are not what you would expect!
