First shot at exclusive Hover Robots during Early Access
Masters of the Universe Classics is the sole focus for Mattycollector’s April sale, with Princess of Power’s Angella available for day of sales beyond those set aside for Club Eternia subscribers. She-Ravers also get another crack at Glimmer (Club Eternia, April 2014), while Eldor (Club Eternia, October 2014) is back to please the Preternia / Powers of Grayskull fans.
But Club Eternia subscribers get a rare opportunity in Early Access, when the “travelling convention” exclusive Hover Robots 3-pack will be available online for the first time. Judging from previous sales of these exclusives, like Strobo and Goat Man, expect a very quick sell-out at the start. If you miss out, you’ll get more chances throughout the rest of the year.
April’s Early Access starts at 8AM PST tomorrow, and All Access starts at 9AM on Wednesday. Good luck!

Mattel is continuing to clear out remaining inventory at Mattycollector – on sale tomorrow for 20% off are DC Universe and Masters of the Universe Classics figures from San Diego Comic-Con and the “traveling conventions.” Most of these are from the past two years – but I’m surprised that Matty still has some of the Mo-Larr vs Skeletor 2-packs from way back in 2010 in stock. I’m a Robot Chicken fan, but maybe the Eternian Dentist was too much of a stretch for the hardcore He-Fans.
The sale at Mattycollector starts at 9AM PST tomorrow, April 2nd. It lasts for 24 hours, but judging from previous sales, your best bet is to get there at the opening bell if there’s something you really want. No April Fools, and happy shopping!

I normally don’t spend any time retouching my photos. There’s something very satisfying about composing a shot, lighting it just right, and snapping a great picture. It’s those rare moments that I think that maybe I should start using the nofilter hashtag. But increasingly, I find myself taking the quick and dirty shot – the one where I’ve set up a figure in front of my computer monitor in my poorly-lit home office, holding an LED light in one hand and my camera phone unsteadily in the other. It usually takes five clicks to find a pic that’s even in focus.
It’s those shots that sometimes need help, and the tools, like Adobe Lightroom, are getting better and easier to use. Previously, I’d only used Lightroom to process pictures taken at events on my DSLR in RAW format. It makes the tedious work of cropping, adjusting exposures, and watermarking a little less so. And because I’m a self-taught amateur, I didn’t even know I could use Lightroom to make quick adjustments on the JPG files that my camera phone shoots.
Now, because I want to stay true to the “quick” here’s three Lightroom tips that you can use in just a couple of minutes to clean up that “dirty” shot. I’ll use Jitsu, shot one-handed with my camera phone, as an example. (I recommend maximizing your browser and clicking on the photos, to view them at their largest, with the fewest artifacts from JPG compression.)

The fate of Mattycollector’s Club 200X will be decided today, as fans of Masters of the Universe Classics have their last opportunity to subscribe. As of last Friday, the sub had climbed to 81% of the total pre-orders needed to ensure all six figures will be made. While it’s possible that it hit 100% over the weekend, we’ve yet to hear from Mattel this morning. If it’s still below the threshold, we could have a long wait, even past closing time tonight, to learn the final outcome.

Based on the latest update from Skeletor’s Love Child, subscribers have pushed the pre-orders for the 6-figure Club 200X subscription from 50% to 76% over the past week. With five days to go, what seemed insurmountable a week ago now seems achievable. Maybe I was too hasty asking if Club 200X was dead.
What do you think – will it make it? Have you subbed?
