    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    Ok I feel loads better about the SDCC exclusives now:

    Hey toy fans,

    Part 1 of what will be a 2-part story on Mattel's SDCC exclusives just aired on G4's Attack of the Show. Big thanks to Blair and the whole AOTS crew, who were a pleasure to work with.

    Since not all the sound bites made it into the final aired cut, here are a few more tidbits on the exclusives revealed thus far:

    Mo-Larr vs. Skeletor.

    This box set will be $40.00 both at SDCC and on MattyCollector.com after the show (no change to product). Mo-Larr will come with all his tools including his drill and his floss. Skeletor features a new toothless face and comes with his Havok Staff, Power Sword and half Power Sword. The pack out is truly epic as designed by Ray Makowski. It includes Skeletor's massage chair and magazine collection as chip art. Also features brand new bios supplied by the gang at Robot Chicken!

    Orko (with Prince Adam)

    So here is the first of our SDCC items that will be different after the show. The version of Orko at SDCC will feature color change when you dip him in warm water. His magic book also show the SDCC logo in hot water. The version sold on MattyCollector.com after the show will not be color change (on Orko or the book) but both version will include his stand, wand and book as well as a pack in Prince Adam with two heads (He-Man and new Prince Adam smirk) as well as a purple Power Sword and half purple Power Sword.

    The bio on the back belongs to Orko as this is his figure. Adam is his accessory! The only difference between the SDCC version and the MattyCollector.com version is the color change feature. $25.00

    A lot of fans have asked "why Orko for SDCC?" Well, simple. We chose Orko because we wanted to go with a more 'A' list MOTU character who would draw in fans otherwise unfamiliar with the current line. In the past our SDCC items have been a bit more obscure in character selection so we deliberately went the other way this year. Also, since Orko was larger then a "standard" accessory we had no way to fit him into a monthly $20.00 figure structure. But by pairing him with Adam we could do a unique structure for a unique price ($25.00) at the show. One of the whole points of an SDCC item is to get PR for a line and to do an item that wouldn't fit into the standard line due to size, theme etc... This fit the bill in a lot of ways!

    Plastic Man

    Plasti comes with a ton of accessories and does everything plastic can do. He has standard arms, stretchy arms, snap on stretch parts like a fly swatter and paddle ball. He also has a snap on bendy neck piece and a spring snap on leg piece.

    And only at SDCC you can get Plastic Man as a suit case (similar to Gleek). you can even snap on his arms and head to the suitcase as if he has been "shopping at SDCC". Open the case up for an extra surprise.

    Plastic Man will be on MattyCollector.com after the show, but the suitcase is only a gift with purchase at SDCC. $20.00

    Starro DC 75th pack.

    The grand daddy of our SDCC items for this year. This pack is a recreation of the classic Brave and the Bold cover and features light and sounds as well as the voice of Batman actor Kevin Conroy. Each figure in the set has a recorded description just like a museum display with Kevin describing the origin of each character. It is an incredible package designed by Frank Varela.

    And as a bonus, only at SDCC will you get a polly bag set of four 6" scale Starro Spores that work with most DCUC action figures! The Starro Spores are only available at the show as a gift with purchase! $50.00

    We'll have more SDCC exclusives to reveal Thursday night and the whole list (including some not on the show) will be up on MattyCollector.com on Friday.

    See you all in San Diego!

    Scott


    I might have to get that STARRO set now. And glad that Orko will come in a NORMAL set up after the show. I rather do that. As for Plastic Man, I'll def try and get him at the con for the free gift, but if not, no sweat.

    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    Coheteboy, it's not like the SDCC exclusive on sale morning at Matty.com is going to be a walk in the park either. Just saying

    They always claim that they're working with Digital River to smooth out all the kinks in the site but they've been saying that since Matty.com got launched.

    I'm hoping this might be the first Comic Con where I don't line up for Hasbro or Mattel!

    As I am sure many have already heard the EU wave of Star Wars figures is hitting retail. Yakface is saying that it looks like there is going to be a special endcap for Star Wars on May 1st. We shall see.

    I know where I'll be on May 1. The only question is which TRU location to go to.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Melonballer!

    Hmmmm .... looks like I don't have this problem seeing as there is only one TRU is my town. And, seeing as I am in Canada, they might not be released here May 1st at all. Good luck

    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    So, which fast food joint it going to have tie-ins for which movie this summer?

    The most obvious one will be Burger King/Iron Man II. Any restuarants having tie-ins for A-Team? Toy Story 3? Sex and the City 2?

    Don't look for anything with Toy Story send Disney and McDonald broke up. Disney dosen't want any of there stuff in fast food places anymore. If they where still doing it then McDonalds would had things out for Princess and The Frog,Tinkerbell,Blot and Up but send they are not doing it anymore don't look for anything from Toy Story 3.

    I just ordered Hordak from Matty.com

    I'm afraid that if I wanted Evil Lyn, I'd still be staring at their white screen of death. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if she is sold out already.

    Like always, sale began 3-4 minutes early. I happened to secure Evil Lyn in my cart but kept messing up the billing/shipping addresses (why can't they just save what I prefer?) and by the time I finally got it right, it was 9:04 and sold out.

    Luckily my friend was able to order 6 of them and included my order in that.


    So... personally for me, that's 3 in a row that I've failed on matty with.

    This seemed to happen to a few of my fellow posters on AFI. Total failure by Digital River once again. Have you changed those addresses at any point in time per chance? It seems like the site isn't able to handle the changes.

    I might just have to suck it up and wait at SDCC rather than risk not having any Orko/Adam at all from the site.

    - I saw photos of a few more TS3 Lego sets and there is one that is so great, I have to mention it, spoilers or no spoilers (this shouldn't be much of a spoiler anyhow). Pizza Planet Truck scaled to the minifigs is coming!!!!!!!!!

    It's also coming as a Duplo set.

    I think it'll be in the $30 range or maybe more as it comes with Buzz, Hamm, Rex and an Alien.

    The Duplo set comes with a Dinoco gas station as well.
