DC Universe Classics Ozymandias and Ra’s al Ghul Headline Mattycollector 11/15 Sale

Mattycollector November Sale

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!

Masters of the Universe Classics Horde Troopers and Mantenna Headline Mattycollector October Sale

Mattycollector October Sale

The October sale date for Mattycollector is here (here’s the bundle page for October), and it’s a big hit to your wallet if you’re a Club Eternia and Club Infinite Earths subscriber. For Masters of the Universe Classics, Mantenna and Lord Dactus double up for the monthly, as the September figure was pushed back. On top of that you’ve got the Horde Troopers 2-pack. The Weapons Pak is optional, but another $20 if you want recolored accessories and Kowl. Then there’s Nepthu (who?) for the Club Filmation figure. For DC Universe Classics, it’s Ocean Master.

Early Access is on right now. Merman was supposed to be up, but all I see is a sold-out Hordak. Black Mask, Lead, and the Weapons Pak are still available.

MOTUC Despara 1 MOTUC Despara 2 MOTUC Despara 3

Masters of the Universe Classics Despara by Hunter Knight Customs – I haven’t been reading the new He-Man comic book (should I?) so I can’t speak to how this custom matches up to She-Ra’s misguided Despara character, but I find it pretty cool nonetheless – ends Oct 13, 2013 18:55:31 PDT

In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

Power-Con 2013: Mattel’s Official Masters of the Universe Classics Update

Castle_PowerConReveals01 PowerConReveals_09

Mattel posted their reveals for Masters of the Universe Classics. One update from our earlier post – while Club Eternia is indeed opening up for more subscribers, it’s only for a few days (not months, as we saw reported elsewhere). Club Eternia will be available again between 9/20 and 9/24.

They provided some nice shots of Castle Grayskull, Blade, Scorpia, and Battle Lion. For the mystery accessory, which we know to be Extendar’s shield, it was the same question mark image that they used for the Unnamed One. More on Extendar will be shared at New York Comic Con in a few weeks.

Masters of the Universe Classics Jet Sled, DC Universe Classics Huntress and Comedian Headline Mattycollector September Sale

Mattycollector September Sale

For a month with the regular Club Eternia figure pushed out by a month (October will have Lord Dactus and Mantenna doubled up), it still feels like there’s a lot to buy. That’s because the Jet Sled vehicle, potentially the front half to a Battle Ram, is on sale with a pilot called Sky High. The Jet Sled and pilot cost $50, raising the question of why include another random figure. Sure, there were palace guards that rode the Jet Sleds during the original cartoon, but things really got exciting when Teela, Man-at-Arms, or He-Man jumped on one to go chase some Evil Warriors. I think Mattel missed out on a potential army builder vehicle here.

On the DC front,we’re coming down to the wire on Club Infinite Earths and Watchmen with Huntress and the Comedian. I’m still a little shocked that I’m going from three subs this year down to none in 2014, since I’ve decided to cherry-pick Masters of the Universe Classics (when Mattel offers day of sale) and DC was canceled.

Early Access starts Thursday at 8AM PST and will run for a day. Kudos to Mattel – even though their announcement makes no mention of it, the Jet Sled will be available, joining DCUC Poison Ivy and MOTUC Stratos. For convenience, here’s the link to Early Access. The regular sale starts on Monday at 9AM PST.
