I didn't see anything about it on the front page here. I no longer frequent the Matty forums or their Facebook page. So pardon me if I'm asking a question that's common knowledge. Thanks. :D

It's not exactly common knowledge. I posted a thread asking the same thing about two weeks ago and it fizzled because no one knows.
Officially, Mattel says it's still supposed to be in April. They're waiting for all of their lines to be ready to reveal so they can do them all at the same time on Mattycollector.com

This year seems painful waiting for the reveals. It's been too long since we've had news on anything, the toy boards are pretty quiet. Hopefully any day now. Mattel isn't the only one lagging, most of them are.

Thanks J. I thought I remembered hearing it was supposed to be April. So I guess it's not happening on Attack of the Show this year?

Yeah, Mattel did say that it would NOT be on that-just announced on Matty.

Thanks for the heads up. Let me swing over to matty.com and see what they've posted.

Hmmmm...

"You’ll also find the awesome new 6” scale Batman evergreen lineup that reimagines Batman from a young mind’s perspective."

Oh Mattel. Are you afraid of success?

Xrmc is right, they won't be on AOTS this year (and I'm SO OK WITH THAT!) LOL

On the bright side, only a few days left in April, so should be any day now! :)

I wouldn't be surprised if, due to logistics, the announcements are made in "Maypril".

That would be some nice Matty answer dodging to announce everything in May and pretend it was still the April they were shooting for.

:P :lol:

The hold up right now is just trying to get all the info from all the different divisions since other groups like Hot Wheels and Monster High also have exclusives. If it were just the Matty Collector stuff it would have been announced already.

I should at least be announced by Free Comic Book Day because I know the stuff is scheduled to be on display at the Comic Book shop by my house again this year.

Free Comic Book Day is May 5th right? Isn't that a Saturday? Why not the standard Wed?

I wish they'd just reveal it already. I hate waiting because of lines I don't collect. LOL. Selfish, but true.

Here's a link to all the Exclusives announced from other toy companies so far...
http://awesometoyblog.com/san-diego-com ... xclusives/

I check it regularly.

I'm ready for the reveals but I can't imagine what they'll have that would actually interest me.

I'm hoping Hasbro will come through with MU, ML, and SW.

I'm not sure I expect anything cool from Mattel at this point, outside of MOTUC.

For Hasbro I'm def getting the Shockwave Hiss Tank... I'm hoping for another G1 Transformer reissue like with Blaster and Soundwave from years past.

For Mattel, the MOTUC exclusive is a total shoe in for me. And for DC, I randomly get some of their stuff. Last year, I got Swamp Thing just because it's a cool figure and I don't even collect DCUC.
We'll see what they offer. If it's cool, I'll get it.

For MOTU I'm really hoping for Modulok. :)

JZach's link gives out the following information:
    Quote:
    Mattel-DC Universe:

    3 exclusives, 1 will be from Batman: The Dark Knight Rises
So I'm thinking Larfleeze and/or Super-Powers Penguin as possibilities. Movie Masters Bane as the Dark Knight exclusive. And some sort of Young Justice figure on account that they didn't expect the line to be canceled (and as a result, have no shortage of figures.)

Wouldn't take Super Powers Penguin if it was free. Movie Masters is terrible. Young Justice I would not expect to have anything unless something got to a production stage but not a ready for retail stage and Larfleeze would be big step down as far as exclusives in that style and scale compared to previous years. I stand prepared to not spend a dime on exclusives again this year :D
