Is there any chance you will make an Iron Giant Select (or bigger) fully articulated figure?
I ask because you are making the Minimate Iron giant figures, and hoped the license extended to larger action figures as well. It’s a great time to cash in on the Iron Giant, with him being featured prominently In Steven Spielberg’s upcoming “Ready Player One” movie. Thank you!

DSTChuck: I have no transparency into the plans for Ready Player One, but I can tell you we are working on more Iron Giant products!

Dustin Y.
Hi, DST. Is there a release date set for the upcoming Ghostbusters series’ and new Real Ghostbusters line?

DSTChuck: Series 6 should be in Toys“R”Us in late November, and the Select figures with the firehouse diorama pieces should arrive a little after. The Real Ghostbusters figures will be in Series 9 & 10.

Rick K.
Hi, can we please get Batman 1966 full statues of Penguin and Riddler, and vinyl banks of Riddler and Catwoman? These are very popular characters that can fill a couple big holes in these two great lines. Thank you!

DSTChuck: I think we would love to continue both lines, but the sales on the statues and banks were slowing down. If we see a good push on the inventory we made, we would love to keep going.

Hi Chuck, any word on Kill Bill? I am happy to see Pulp Fiction made it. Just wonder where things stand on KB. Will they ever see the light of day? Thank you so much for all that you do!

DSTChuck: We are plugging along on the multi-layered approvals and of course plan for them to be in fans’ hands – the sooner the better.

I consider your Muppet figures one of the greatest toy lines in a very long time but having no dynamite for Crazy Harry is a huge misstep in my opinion. It’s a big part of his character. Couldn’t other accessories have been removed like a couple of stands, a microphone or the triangle?
Is there any way to get it with a future figure? I’m guessing it was removed to budget for Rowlf’s piano (which I am grateful to have!) Thank you!

DSTChuck: The choice to not include the dynamite was not our choice. It was not a budget issue.

Mark M.
First, let me say, big fan of all your figures. You guys think outside the box and do wonderful things.
I am wondering if you ever thought of Shaw Bros. Kung Fu figures. I know another company tried, but never had the retail traction 10 years ago. I simply thought it is an unexplored, yet ripe, market and territory.

DSTChuck: Thanks so much for the support. I think there would still be resistance at retail, unfortunately.

Mark T.
I’ve bought all of the Batman 1966 mini bust series. Can you tell me which ones you plan to do next?

DSTChuck: I can tell you there are a few more busts in the design stage, but I don’t think we’re ready to say which ones they are just now.

Jeremiah J.
How are things going with the Select Cthulhu that was displayed at a con a while back? Is that something we will be able to order soon, or has that been cancelled? It looked fantastic!

DSTChuck: Funny, we JUST talked about that last week and are trying to find a way to make it and keep it affordable.

Rick E.
Hey Chuck and the MS Gang! Please, PLEASE tell me that you are considering the new Amazon The Tick series as Selects?? We need Tick, Arthur, Overkill, Superion, and The Terror!!
Please, really consider it! It’s a fantastic show!! Thanks!

DSTChuck: We have not had any talks about the new Tick show at this point – but never say never!
