November and December were blowout months of a sort at Mattycollector, with DC Universe Classics going on closeout and the final figures, Doomsday and Damien Wayne Robin going on sale. In comparison, this month looks drastically different, with a single new figure up for grabs.
Masters of the Universe Classics fans may get a kick out of Lizard Man, who probably would have ended up in a Club Filmation sub if that had continued. But not even consolation prize Extendar can bring this month’s sale out of the post-holiday funk. Early Access opens tomorrow at 8AM PST, and All Access for January opens up at 9AM PST on Friday.

We’re coming up on the holidays, and as you know, not even the Batman takes Christmas off. Neither does Bill, from Bill’s Comics – he’s got another holiday-inspired comic for us to enjoy with some eggnog and candy canes.
While you’re here, be sure to check out the rest of Bill’s work here at AFP. Happy Holidays!

With Doomsday and the Damian Wayne Robin in my hands, it’s starting to dawn on me that the DC Universe Classics line has finally come to an end – not a hiatus, as I had hoped when Mattel pulled the line from retail, but an end. So there’s no better time to talk about what-ifs.
We all have our favorite characters that never made it into the line. For this installment of Soapbox Sunday, I’ll take a look at my most wanted, and give you my picks for what if we could have one more figure from each of the DC family of characters. Then you can tell me yours.

With Toy Guru out of the Mattycollector marketing team line-up, Mattel may need to look at hiring someone to manage their social media a bit more actively. Sure, there were Facebook and Twitter postings about their flash sales, but nothing detailing what figures were actually added to the Mattycollector Cyber Monday sale at 9AM PST – even on the Mattycollector site itself. And I’ll admit I’m a little salty over it.
If the flash sale items appear at the top of the list, then it’s Sky High with the Jet Sled, Castaspella, and Jitsu from Masters of the Universe Classics who showed up. I almost certainly would have bought another Jitsu, but he and Sky High sold out quickly. And as of last viewing, He-Man and Panthor from MOTUC, and the “bound” Doomsday, Larfleeze, Red Hood, Freddy Freeman (Capt. Marvel Jr.), Huntress, Lead, Saint Walker, Wally West Flash, and John Constantine from DC Universe Classics have sold out thus far.
