This week’s customs are all high up on my want-but-can’t-have list:
- Marvel Legends SIF by JLA - I really do wish that Hasbro had gotten on the ball and made a Thor Marvel Legends wave or two – although I’m generally not enthused by using DC Universe Classics figures for Marvel characters (and vice versa), this custom really works out well – I’ll have to compare the sizes to newer ML Thor, though, because I wonder how Sif measures up – ends Dec 07, 2013 20:49:30 PST
- WWE Elite Hulk Hogan by 1more2come - this is a relatively simple custom but fills a gap in all our Mattel WWE Legends collections – with Hulk recently re-upping with TNA, it’d take a miracle to get him in the Mattel WWE line-up, even if it’s just a flashback figure – it’s too bad Marvel Toys / Toy Biz is no longer in the game with its TNA figures – ends today, Dec 03, 2013 18:47:19 PST
- 1/6 Scale Blade Runner Rick Deckard by thebatmancollector - this custom combines elements from Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, and costuming from Android Hunter – I think there’s enough of a cult following for Blade Runner that Sideshow or Hot Toys could pick it up – if Sideshow can make a Snake Plissken, certainly there’d be more options for figures from Blade Runner – ends today, Dec 03, 2013 15:16:18 PST
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!
Custom action figure fans, CustomCon36 will start next Tuesday, December 10. If you have a last minute entry for CustomCon 36, please contact me if you need just a little more time.
A couple months ago, Jor-El was one of the tougher Man of Steel Movie Masters figures to find. Until 1PM PST today, or while supplies last, he’s one of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals for the great price of $7.69. They also had the black-suited Man of Steel Superman up earlier, but he’s already sold out at the $9.99 deal price and now back up to $13.31.
Since the Mattycollector Cyber Monday sale kicked off last Tuesday, four items have sold out. Masters of the Universe Classics Granymyr was first to go, during Early Access. Since then, Hordak, Orko, and Battle Armor Skeletor have joined him.
What could we see during the hourly flash sales? I think the Spirit of Hordak may come out of hiding. Do you think customer service stock for the Horde Trooper 2-pack and subscriber-only figures like Sea Hawk could show up?
We’ve got 7 whole days of steals, deals and Matty madness! It’s your chance to snag special offers, extra cart discounts, and some hard to find items you’ve been eyeing all year. Early Access starts on Tuesday morning before Black Friday, with All Access on Wednesday morning, and the sale continues until 9:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning, 12/3.
Extra Cart Discounts! Save 10% off your entire order if you spend $100-$199 and 20% off your entire order if you spend $200 or more! Please note these extra discounts apply only to discounted items and will not apply to The Cyber 6!.
Be sure you check in often on Monday, 12/2 for hourly flash sales with special pricing that come and go… you never know what you might find!

I’ve got a feeling that the marketing folks at Mattel just gave up when trying to name this sale that starts tomorrow. Sure, the Cyber Monday sale includes a Monday, but it starts on a Tuesday and it lasts eight days (not seven, as the promo claims) when you count Early Access. To make your brain jump through more hoops, Mattel highlights four items out of the “Cyber 6″ (shown above) – these items aren’t discounted at all during the sale.
Most non Cyber 6 items will be up to 30% off. Some will be up to 50% off. And then you can get 10% or 20% more discount if you spend over $100 or $200. And then next Monday (ahh, Cyber Monday!) there will be hourly flash sales, including the two non-revealed Cyber 6 items that aren’t discounted. Confused yet? Come up with a name for this sale that makes sense and you can probably get a job at Mattel.

Mattel has shared info for its upcoming Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull shipments, as well as the day of sales plan for those of you looking to pick up one for your collection. The plan is to ship between 11/22 and 1/15, but at this point there’s no way to know when your Castle(s) will ship. For day of, it’ll be offered first during Early Access on 12/12, and if there’s any left, it’ll be up on 12/16. The cost before shipping will be $300.
Be sure to let us know when you get your Castle in!

DC Universe Classics has one of its last big months on Mattycollector, with Ozymandias wrapping up the Black Freighter Watchmen subscription and much-wanted Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul revealing his ugly face – although I’m not sure that was intended. On the Masters of the Universe Classics side, fan-vote winner Geldor should please the mini-comics fans.
And the men of Masters now have a companion to SkirtGate – some are unhappy with the shape of the overlays on some of the new male figures, like Sea Hawk – the engineering on them add some unwanted girth to the already exaggerated torsos.
Here’s your links to early access on 11/14 at 8AM PST (Constantine and Elasti-Girl) and the bundle page for the regular sale on 11/15 at 9AM PST. Enjoy!

A couple of weeks ago, the Mattel Shop had a $20 or $50 off sale, but only if you spent $100 or $200. This time around it’s a bit easier – just spend over $25 and you’ll get 20% off and free shipping as part of the extended “Blue Friday” sale they kicked off yesterday.
The Superman™ Movie Masters® Bundle for $79.95 is still a great deal, for five figures. You can also get the Man of Steel figures individually, except for Faora. There’s also Batman (including Batman, Riddler, and Penguin from the Classic TV Series), DC Comics and DC Universe (why these two are separate, I don’t know), and WWE categories to search through.
In total, there’s close to 140 action figures and accessories included in the sale, so qualifying for the discount should be easy. Happy shopping!

If there was any doubt that Broom would be coming to Masters of the Universe Classics with Madame Razz, then check out the file name on the image. Mattel was not as forthcoming with Loo-Kee. Regardless, Princess of Power fans should be pleased with the Mattel’s final teases this year.

Now we know how we’ll be getting that Robot Faker head – it will come with New Adventures Skeletor. And yes, the sword that Mattel teased at NYCC belongs to Flutterina. She has an actual skirt, so we can’t complain about the skirts that Mattel has been unintentionally giving the female characters in Masters of the Universe Classics recently.
And the latest reveal in the booth – Broom! For you Princess of Power fans, does that signal a Madame Razz in 2014?
