Led by Starfire, the Teen Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing – have built a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil; but their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.

Christina Ricci and the late Miguel Ferrer join the already-established Teen Titans voice cast as Terra and Deathstroke, respectively. Returning Titans actors include Sean Maher as Nightwing, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Jake T. Austin as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo as Beast Boy, Kari Wahlgren as Starfire, and Stuart Allan as Robin/Damian. Gregg Henry voices the villainous Brother Blood.

The Deluxe Edition will come packaged with an exclusive Blue Beetle figurine in a numbered, limited-run gift set. Both the Deluxe Edition and Blu-ray Combo Pack will contain the following special features:
- Sneak Peek – Batman and Harley Quinn: Sneak peek at the next DC Universe Original Movie, featuring the talented creators and voice cast.
- Featurette – Titanic Minds: Wolfman and Perez: This revealing documentary explores a creative partnership that has lasted decades as Marv Wolfman and George Pérez come together to discuss their careers and one of the most famous runs in Teen Titan history, The Judas Contract.
- Featurette – Villains United—Deathstroke: When the super-soldier Deathstroke appears, the forces of good will be in the fight of their lives. This short featurette reveals the origin and unique abilities of this villain.

Ask Matty for May 1, 2013



Matty from Mattycollector.com takes the time to answer questions from collectors.
Thank you Matty!

1) I have seen the new Target Exclusive JUSTICE LEAGUE figures both the single carded figures and the 7 pack. The photos of the 7 pack set on the Target website and the back of the package show the figures in a metallic paint finish. However the figures in the package do not have the metallic finish.
QUESTION: are there variants of these figures coming? I would rather have the metallic Cyborg and Hal Jordan, as well as Superman, Flash and Aquaman.

Justice-League-metallic
cyborg-silver

Right now, there are no plans for metallic painted variants of the Justice League figures. Due to the way production schedules work and how early photo models are needed, the photo models on package are all hand- made models rather than actual production pieces. As such, they have to be decorated with paint, which has a different metallic effect than the molded metallic plastic of the actual production run.




2) Hi, I've seen the new evergreen Batman 3.75" figure with vehicle sets at Target and other retailers. I know that Target is selling their exclusive 3.75" 5 pack set on their website. Some people have seen the single carded 3.75" Batman figures at Krogers grocery store and Khol's but not the big retailers.
QUESTION: When are they coming and which retailers will be selling them?

Pasted Graphic 5
The Batman fig/vehicles and figures will be sold at a variety of fine retailers, both brick-and-mortar and online.  They are have been hitting shelves for the past few months.



3) DC Infinite Heroes ended in 2010, in favor of preparing for the Young Justice figures. Both lines had a bad launch, but DC Infinite Heroes managed to get several waves and over 150 figures including the different paint variations. Many DC 3.75" - 4" figure fans want to see this line return. Since this line was patterned after the figure designs for the DC UNIVERSE ONLINE video game, why not rename the line after the video game? (You did make Arkham City and Injustice game figures.) You can release new figures as well as some of the old figures that appear in the game. As the game developers continue to add to the game, more DC Characters and costume variations are being added. We know that there was a LOST wave of DCIH figures that were prototyped and never released. Add some elbow articulation to the female figures and bring these figures back.
QUESTION: Will we see some good looking DC 3.75"-4" figures like DCIH in the future, maybe labeled under "DC Universe Online" or even "Justice League"?

Justice-League-logo
You’ll have to wait and see!  For now, you can check out the Justice League figures that recently launched at Target.



4)
QUESTION: Is the Superman Man of Steel 3.75"-4" figure line geared more for kids than collectors? The line appears to have several multi-colored versions of Superman and some with or without some battle armor. Many collectors prefer the traditional DC comic book costume versions over the Warner Brothers movie costume versions.
man-of-steel-3-75
Y9220-webY9218-web
Y9219-webY9221-web

By the time these answers hit the web, the Man of Steel product will have hit shelves, so you can see what’s out there!  The figures celebrate and are inspired by the film.



5)
QUESTION: If you release a 3.75"-4" line of "Justice League" action figures, will they be nicely sculpted and articulated like the DC Infinite Heroes or will they have clunky over-sized hands and feet and limited articulation like the current evergreen Batman 3.75"-4" figures have?

I use a MacOS computer, so I may not be able to play this PC game when it becomes available. I will have to wait and see. In the mean time I still am playing the DC UNIVERSE ONLINE game.

Collector Support Needed For Future DC Toy Releases

6/24/09 UPDATE

The DC Infinite Heroes 6 pack, Teen Titans Mallah’s Revenge will be a Walmart exclusive later this year.



The 2 packs of Batman and Clayface, Superman and Brainiac, will be available at Toys-R-Us and some online retailers in June or July 2009. I don’t know if the Supergirl and Lex Luthor, Golden Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl, 2-packs will ever be released.



==============================================
12/20/08
Here is an update from Toy Guru at Mattel.

Hey toy fans,
So here is the deal with the new DCUC 2 packs and new DCIH Teen Titans Mallah's Revenge 6 packs that has shown up on some internet sites.




( These are unpainted prototype photos. )

These are currently "proposed" packs which we would very much like to get to. What are the factors holding them up you say? Well fan interest that is what!

To generate this, we have offered these packs to online retailers in hopes of generating enough pre-sales and support going into production. If we do recieve that and can hit the minimum order quantity we need to go into production, these packs will roll out throughout 2009. Here is the skinny:

Batman vs Clayface (January 2009?)

Batman will be in his black and gray costume with "mud splatter" effects. Clayface will be an exact reissue of this hard to find figure.



Superman vs Brainiac (April 2009?)

This is proposed as a standard Superman figure (Eradicator head on the Wave 6 Superman body with red heat vision eyes) vs. Classic Brainiac (green head) with an all new head and collar piece. Brainic will come armed with Luthor's gun from the 2007 figure.



Supergirl vs. Luthor (July 2009?)

This will be a reissue of the Blue outfit Kara Supergirl and the power suit Lex, but perhapes with a little surprise in the accessories!



Golden Age Hawkman & Hawkgirl Pack (September 2009?)

Two new figures to start your golden age collection.


So again, all of these packs are pending fan interest. Because they are not being carried (at this time) by any of the large box stores, we need to generate a minimum order before we can turn on the green light and go into production.

And while many may ask "why not sell these on MattyCollector.com?", well, that is because we have other more intensive packs with more obscure characters from the DC universe planned for the Matty.com offerings which are already going forward - check out the new issue of Toy Fare for a sneak peak at Alex Luthor and Ultraman. These 4 packs are meant to get harded to find figures back in collectors hands. (vs the Matty packs are all news characters in each pack).

If these packs do not get produced, we will try to work these characters back into the line down the road. But for now, the best way to show support for these packs is to place pre orders with your favorite online retailer today!

Also, look for a surprise reveal on
MattyCollector.com right after Xmas this year!
