News: Mattel Announces SDCC Exclusives
So earlier this afternoon Mattel announced their lineup of SDCC exclusive products on Mattycollector.com. Read on to get all the details.
“Here’s your first official look at the products we’re planning to have available at this year’s convention. Some items will be available for pre-order at our voucher pre-sale from 5/30 at 9am PT through 6/14 at 11:59 pm PT for pick up at SDCC or after the show here on MattyCollector.com, and all will be sold at SDCC. Check back for updates, including images of the Hot Wheels® vehicles and the reveal of something ghoulishly good from Monster High®!
Masters of the Universe® Vykron™ ($30)
If clothes make the He-Man®, then this pitch prototype for the 1982 lineup is destined to be the star of the MOTU 30th Anniversary celebration thanks to a choice of three outfits: barbarian, spaceman, and military warrior! You’ll get him in-package dressed as a barbarian only at SDCC , but you can find him here at MattyCollector.com after the show packed as a spaceman or military warrior (all three outfits are included regardless of where he’s purchased). Want to know more about this multi-purpose warrior? Set includes one “buck,” or figure, with three different outfits/helmets to interchange between space, military and barbarian looks. Check back for the history of Vykron™, soon to be disclosed…
DCU Tiny Titans ($20)
They may be miniscule, but they’re mighty! The core team of Tiny Titans is rendered in 1-1/2” scale in this 5-pack of collectible figures including Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg, and Beast Boy. Sidekick City Elementary is just a quick bus ride away with packaging featuring specially commissioned artwork from Tiny Titans’ series creator. The display base has both the official Tiny Titans logo and a “flight” stand just for Raven.
DC Comics Vertigo™ Death ($25)
Some envision Death as a grim reaper or dark angel to be feared. But as created by Neil Gaiman for DC Comics’ line of Vertigo comics, the Sandman`s older sister is pretty, perky and always gets the job done. She`s been around since the beginning of time and is exactly the kind of girl you`ll want to follow into the unknown. Our 8” figure of Death wears her trademark ankh necklace and comes with a skull-themed display base.
Ghostbusters™ Dana as Zuul ($25)
“There is no Dana, only Zuul!” Our long-awaited 6” figure of Dana Barrett as Zuul from the first Ghostbusters™ features authentic, film-accurate sculpting right down to her golden gown. And, with two interchangeable lower bodies she can stand or, when she tires of waiting for the coming of Gozer, sit on the included bench display.
Disney • Pixar Cars 2012 Comic-Con Mater ($30)
This year’s Comic-Con vehicle captures the hilarious scene from Cars 2 when our beloved Mater finds himself in a Tokyo bathroom stall. Just like in the movie, Mater is surprised with flashing lights, catchy music, and a thorough scrub down! This memorable moment comes to life with moving side jets, as well as a jet that springs up to clean Mater’s undercarriage, lifting his back wheels off the floor. Covered in suds, Mater experiences hi-tech action unlike anything he’s ever seen in Radiator Springs!
Polly Pocket® DC Comics Villains Set ($19.99)
It’s a guaranteed adventure with this trio of comic-book character costumes for Polly® and her friends! Polly®, Lila® and Lea® arrive in a themed 3-pack dressed as their favorite DC Comics villains: Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.
Images of these items are in the works as you read this so be sure to come back soon!
•Hot Wheels® Masters of the Universe® Volkswagen Drag Bus
•Hot Wheels® Scooby-Doo!™ The Mystery Machine
•Hot Wheels® K.I.T.T. Knight Industries Two Thousand
•Monster High® – To be revealed. It’s a mystery to us, too!”
So its good to finally know what the MOTUC SDCC exclusive is, but Im not really too big on this character. I never like most of the concept figures (Except Demo-Man who rocks) but I will still be picking up one or two of these guys for the sake of my collection. The Dana Ghostbusters figure is a joke and a slap in the face to all the GB collectors out there. Polly Pockets don’t do it for me, but if you are into them these look pretty cool. The Vertigo Death figure almost makes me want to buy it (I’m a huge Sandman fan) but it looks like the articulation on it isn’t really that great, but that could just be and early photo so we will see. Tiny Titans I may buy just to have a super cute Raven on my desk. The mater actually sound like it may be a cool toy if you are into Cars stuff. As far as the unpictured stuff goes the only one that may be cool is the Monster high doll, but I’m gonna have to wait until I see some pics of that before i make up my mind. so that’s what I think of all these things, but what do you guys think of them? let me know in the comments section.
