In June, 2000, Playmates VP of Boys Toys Jeff Trojan asked the members of our forum to put together a list of multi-pack ideas, as a way of expanding the concept Playmates began with Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy.

Jeff Trojan's Response

Thanks for the list of suggestions (2-4 packs). They've been printed and filed - much like our old Star Trek lists, which I went back to frequently in the last 2 years I run the line. Some are already on the proposed 2002 list, individually or in packs. One is in front of another major retailer who might consider exclusives. And, some had already been nixed by Gracie Films and Fox.
