Need a laugh today? Watch Batman ask Green Lantern to “Pimp My Ride” as the Mego Justice League fights the DC Universe Classics Chemo, in this classic clip from Robot Chicken.
Now admit that this could be a better Justice League than Zack Snyder can pull together for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.

The Mattycollector Club 200X subscription opens up for orders today. Like its predecessors, Club Filmation and Club Etheria, Club 200X is a six-figure subscription with a club-only exclusive – a $182 commitment over the second half of 2015. You can subscribe to Club 200X at Mattycollector with either a monthly or quarterly shipping option, which was instituted this year for Club Eternia to help reduce shipping costs.
So, are you in for Club 200X?

The final three characters have been revealed for the Mattycollector Club 200X subscription, which Mattel announced at Toy Fair 2015 for the second half of this year. Prahvus, Queen Grayskull, and King Chooblah will be joining Callix, Evil Seed, Ceratus, and five disembodied 200X heads (the exclusive Eternian Heads accessory pack) to round out the six month sub.
The selection reminded me of one aspect I really liked about the 200X cartoon – the flashbacks to the times before He-Man really gave some good backstory and broadened the MOTU universe.

Remember watching the Adam West Batman show and ending up with a cliffhanger – only to miss the following episode? That’s what it felt like waiting for news about Mattel’s Batman 1966 line. A nostalgic favorite for many, the line hit some snags with sell-through and its fate was uncertain.
At least until this past weekend, when Mattel announced the Batman 1966 line would be returning to retail. And in a fitting twist, much of it would be reruns. The 6-inch figure assortment is returning with no new additions to the line-up. The one new 6-incher, the Yvonne Craig Batgirl, shows up in a 3-pack with Batman and Robin. Speaking of the Dynamic Duo, they return with the Batmobile. And Adam West gets a headsculpt in a new deluxe playset entitled “To the Batcave, Batman!”

When Mattel announced the Back to the Future license for Mattycollector way back when, I think many of us were hoping for action figures along the lines of what they had done for Ghostbusters. In hindsight, with a limited roster of characters, Mattel’s decision to forego action figures was probably a good one.
They have, however leveraged the license to make vehicles in the Hot Wheels line. The latest, the Elite Back to the Future DeLorean, allows you to customize the vehicle into all three versions of the Time Machine. You can add the Mr. Fusion reactor or the jerry-rigged mods Doc Brown whipped up in the Old West, for example.

Admittedly, my interest in this line has waned since the Legends line extension was folded back into the Elite umbrella, but I still appreciate the good sculpts and articulation setup for these wrestlers. I’m getting a little more familiar with today’s stable – but that’s only because my wife can’t stop watching the WWE Divas reality show.
Of these reveals, I know the Junkyard Dog, Batista, Doink, and Hogan. Even the Hulkster in his prime (which this figure is not – it looks like a figure for his latest return to the WWE) would have a hard time getting me to recall the rest of them.
