Mattel announces NY Comic Con MOTU Figure!
November 3, 2008

Mattel announced last week their plans for the Masters of the Universe NYC Comic Con exclusive figure over on MattyCollector.com

We’re getting closer to the release of MOTU Classics. Everyone on the MattyCollector.comSM team is so appreciative of all our fan’s patience as we work around the clock to get these figures correct before bringing them to market.

We will be launching the MOTU Classics brand page here on MattyCollector.com in early November with release dates, photo guides and up-to-the-minute information about the MOTU Classics brand. It looks to be a very exciting 2009 with at least one new figure each month starting with a double delivery of He-Man® and Beast Man® in December.

What’s that? You want more? Well how about the NY Comic Con Faker® figure!

That’s right, in addition to the February figure Stratos®, Faker® will also be available at NY Comic Con (with additional supply available in March here at MattyCollector.com). But get him first at the show!

 And yes, he will have the computer graphic under his armor! We wouldn’t do the fans wrong!

 

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 www.ActionFigureInsider.com. 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 MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, 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.
