NYCC 2013: Mattel Reveals 2014 Updates for DC and Masters of the Universe at Mattypalooza (Video)

NYCC 2013 - Mattypalooza - Robot Faker Reveal

Mattycollector front man Toy Guru, accompanied by Cornboy and Eric Treadaway from the Four Horsemen, updated New York Comic Con attendees with Mattel’s collector-oriented plans for 2014. For their healthiest line, Masters of the Universe Classics, it was business as usual, but with Stan Lee’s Comikaze in a couple of weeks, the reveals were at a minimum – Flogg from New Adventures and a tease of Robot Faker. On the fan vote for New Adventures 2015, Mara won – no big surprise, as I’m sure many people who did vote but didn’t care about New Adventures just went for the female character.

On the DC front, the four revealed figures for the failed 2014 Club Infinite Earths sub will be released as day of figures quarterly, with the jail-suited Doomsday as a SDCC 2014 exclusive. I have a hard time understanding the jail suit over the infinitely better “unleashed” version – I can’t believe that the better sales numbers that version would yield didn’t justify the increased tooling.

And there’s more – check out our video of the panel. We missed a small portion when the recording hit the limit, but that was just Two Bad and Glimmer, and you’ve seen them before, right?

The DC Universe Classics sub lives – kind of. Doomsday is an SDCC exclusive – kind of. Total Heroes will satisfy fans with Mattycollector offerings – kind of. I’ll try to be a glass half full guy from now on – kind of. For Masters of the Universe Classics, it’s Extendar and Flogg steaming up the display cabinets. Toy Guru is holding firm on the no Unnamed One reveal until he shows up on your doorstep (if you subbed!)
