Mattel Reveals Full Line Up of 2015 MOTU Minis – Sub Open Until 11/24
November 20, 2014

In an unprecedented post-Toy Guru move, Mattel and MattyCollector.com has revealed the entire wave of proposed 2015 figures sets for the Masters of the Universe Minis line in an attempt to get enough subscribers to make the line move forward for 2015.

The timeline of reveals is as follows:

They showed us the first 2 sets at Comic Con over the Summer when the subscription was announced:

 Then, in October, Toy Guru revealed that Ram Man and Trap jaw would also be in the 2015 Mini Masters line up:

Last week, the now Toy Guru-less MattyCollector team revealed 2 more characters (Orko and Hordak) in the line-up by showing their design sketches:

That same week He-Ro was revealed as part of the 2015 line up when Matty started posting these subscription reminders to Facebook:

With all that news that meant we knew 19 of the 12 characters in the 2015 Mini Masters line.  Then this week we see the unprecedented FULL reveal of a Mattel subscription happen during the sub window in the form of this email:

Buzz Off, Webstor and Stinkor will also be in the line.  Now we know the full line up of all six 2-packs.

Mattel also just released this video of the line-up:

Unfortunately the sub going forward, even with all figures reveled looks grim.  With just 4 days left to sign up they are only at 25% of the subs needed for it to move forward.

You can help the prospect of the line by going to MattyCollector.com and picking one of the 2 subscription offers.  The subscription will close at the end of the day on 11/24.

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.

    even now with toy guru gone to other things just like the other motu subs this thing may make it through espically since mattel will just to get more subs expand the deadline using their old playbook

    Was the previous comment English? Tip – punctuation is important to conveying one’s point in writing. Seriously. I had to read it three times to make sense of it.

    I’ll be interested to see if the mini-figures for year two show up during 2015. They are gorgeous but the price point is terrible! At even $12 per set I would have been interested. But when it comes out to more than $25 after shipping, there was no way these were going to sell.
