Scott Neitlich NOT answering the ACTUAL Questions
I've put a couple of questions and suggestions to Mattel's
Brand Manager Scott Neitlich, A.K.A toyguru.
His answers at Matty Collector's forums have been at
best ambiguous, and at times it seems he's not really

Or perhaps I'm too harsh?
Anyway, still counting down the days to 2015.
It seems along way, away now, just like it was in 1989.
Time will tell.
