December 16, 2016

The lineups for 2016 are now complete! December brings wise warrior Panthro™, cruel crustacean Clawful®, and Roton™, the circular assault center on the move. Plus, check out our huge Vault Blowout Sale!

The year is over, but the struggle between good and evil rages on. You can stand with the fearless fighter Panthro™, a prodigious pilot proudly protecting his people. Or you can stand with the triumphantly repugnant, utterly malicious and pernicious Clawful®. Or, don’t stand at all … get on the move with Roton™, the armed vehicle of the Evil Warriors. (Comes with a fully articulated brand new Skelcon™ figure!)

Plus, we’re closing the doors on the Matty Shop at the end of the month, so we’re having a huge Vault Blowout Sale! Help us clear the shelves … and snag some last minute deals for yourself. Fill out your collection, build up your army, or give to a friend, because the more MOTU the merrier!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    Damn that Panthro looks perfect. Got the email saying mine was shipped out today. Still waiting deliver of Pumyra & Mumm-Ra. Jackalman and Lion-O are great figures. ugh, I want more ThunderCats. 🙁

    • Brock says:

      I too, am still waiting for my delivery of Pumyra and Mumm-Ra. I recently received Jackalman and on the slip it stated it shipped on November 2nd. It seems it takes some time to get to the door.

      • Scott says:

        Yeah. Lion-O was super quick (2 days) cos I accidentally paid for the fast delivery and changed it for the remaning figures. Jackalman took a few weeks. No idea when the others will arrive.

  • Jim says:

    hello, My name is Jim. And I need some help. When I was in Ireland about 17 years ago I visited the Duty Free Shop. I bought an Toy Story 2 Die Cast Vehicles set for 11.50 item # Mattel 89553. I cannot find any information about this product. I would be interested in selling it perhaps, since my kids grew up without it. Cannot find in on line in the US or EU. Would like to know what to do with it. Brand new in the box!
