#Mattel Announces San Diego Comic-Con Online-Only Sale: Starts 7/18 for Everyone #SDCC
July 14, 2016

In a very strange turn of events, yesterday Mattel made some sweeping changes to their SDCC exclusives, telling fans they will no longer be available for sale at the con, but instead opting to sell a lot of the items online starting on July 18th.   If you already pre-ordered items to be picked up at the show, those will still be available for pick up.   See the details below:


For the first time ever, we’re offering an SDCC Online Sale for fans attending the show AND those who couldn’t go! These exclusives will be available only at MattyCollector.com. Don’t miss this opportunity!

You asked for it, and we’re making it happen! Due to popular demand, you’ll soon have the opportunity to buy the She-Ra® and Thundercats™: Wilykit and Wilykat™ SDCC 2016 exclusives directly from MattyCollector.com.

That means they will not be available at our booth during SDCC – they’ll only be part of our upcoming SDCC Online Sale in July. More information about the sale coming soon.

Quantities will be limited, so you’ll have to move fast to get them. Stay tuned for more details, as six more items from our Voucher Sale will also be available online, too!

Please note: If you pre-ordered She-Ra® or Thundercats™: WIlykit and Wilykat™ during our Voucher Sale, you’ll still pick them up at SDCC.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
