MotUC listed in Mattel Shop, currently with free shipping

Matty Collector closed with a whisper rather than a bang late last year (although the final sale — which I stupidly delayed in ordering until it was too late — was an explosion of value), taking with it many of our cherished toy lines. While the Masters of the Universe Classics line is effectively dead (Super 9 is making *some* figures, but so far they just seem like repaints of previously released MotUCs… and I stupidly delayed pulling the trigger there as well), the older releases may briefly live on in Mattel’s shop.

Mattel has added many of Matty Collector’s Masters of the Universe figures to its shop, including the classics and minis. On top of that, the site is offering free shipping on all of its Masters items during this week.

While this seems like great news, many of these figures have been available through Mattel’s ebay sellers store and, in some instances, at a cheaper price. Plus not everything they list is actually in stock, including convention items like the Hover Robots 3-pack.

All the same, I suppose this is good news since it feels a bit less like overstock they’re still trying to get rid of… although that’s almost certainly what these are. And, on the brighter side, it seems to include some things I haven’t seen listed in their ebay seller’s store.

Hasbro draws Disney Princesses license away from Mattel

After some 20 years of Mattel doing Disney Princess figures and dolls it looks like things are changing. Hasbro has announced that Disney has pulled the Princess license away from Mattel (the current number two toy maker in the world) and has granted it to Hasbro (the current number three). Hasbro already had the Marvel and Star Wars licenses long before Disney bought those franchises in recent years so this puts yet another Disney property(ies) under their belt. 

More details about Hasbro’s new Disney license can be read over at CNN Money. Of course with this the speculation as to a possible purchase of Hasbro by Disney has been renewed once again. For now there’s no basis for that and it should be remembered that Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6 (technically a Marvel movie) licenses went to Bandai. Now, if more licenses work their way over to Hasbro we might have something.

New BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Action Figure BATMOBILE VEHICLE by Mattel!



Mattel recently shared a photo of what their BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT BATMOBILE CAR is gonna look like. Of course this is the version from the next video game. It also shows one of the many functions of the vehicle, it opens up! I really like this, it’s pretty cool! My only gripe is I heard a rumor it’s gonna be about $85 dollars. Yes, Eighty-Five bucks!

Here’s their promotional copy:

In the video game, Batman™ battles all-new threats in Gotham City with the help of an arsenal-equipped vehicle. This Batman™: Arkham Knight Batmobilefeatures premium, highly-detailed deco and authentic sounds straight from the game, and much more!
The tires can do a complete 360-degree spin, allowing the vehicle to turn on a dime… very handy for pursuing villains. When the top of the vehicle is pressed downward the firepower is revealed: on the left side, a riot suppressor rubber bullet gun, and on the right side, a high-powered Gatling gun, both with sounds and light effects – straight from the game! Hold the activation button longer than three seconds to create a red glow, simulating heat transferring, and press the rear button to turn on the headlights and play the game’s iconic Bat-swarm sound effect. There are also controls to rev the engine, to see the exhaust light up, and for the sound of the cannon. The vehicle comes with an articulated DC Comics Multiverse Akrham City Batman figure with a fabric cape allowing Batman™ to sit in the driver’s seat!

New Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series COWL MASK By Mattel!



OK, here’s another quick post to share this photo I came across the other day. Now I have not totally confirmed this, but this is supposed to be the BATMAN COWL that Mattel has plans to come out with (They also have a Bat-Belt in the works). I don’t have ANY information yet on price or when it will be made available. But one thing is for sure, I’m gonna be camping out all night in front of the store to get mine, ha ha! I mean, I’ve been waiting for this item since I was 2 years old!! I’m also pretty impressed with the way it looks. The “eyebrows” look so awesome!
