Mattel Reveal’s SDCC 13 Exclusive Movie Masters® Superman™ vs. General Zod Movie Pack
June 19, 2013

As you will recall, when this set was announced s an SDCC exclusive all Mattel was able to show us was the outer box.  I guess Warner Brothers thought it was too much of a spoiler for us to know one of the last scenes in a giant action movie might be the hero and the main villain dukeing it out.    Now the movie is out and the set can be shown.

At first glance this set will look like “hey we already have these figures” but if you look closely you will see some differences.   Superman has a cloth cape and an action feature with light-up eyes to simulate his “heat vision.”

Zod is a combonation of the other 2 Zod figures with the gotee head on the skinsuit body and an I-beam accessory

The other thing that is significant to this set is that it comes with the flight base that was first shown at Toy Fair 2012 with the canceled 6″ Young Justice Superboy.


DC Man of Steel™ Movie Masters® Superman™ vs. General Zod Movie Pack
This 2-pack brings to life the super charged battle between two powerful Kryptonians, Superman™ and the General Zod, an exciting diorama set in the city of Metropolis! The package features lights that simulate Superman’s Heat Ray vision, and shows off the Kryptonian’s super strength and flying ability. The diorama is completed with sound effects to help bring the scene to life.

This product will be available for pre-order at on June 4, 2013, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con (details to come). It will also be available for purchase at the show, then at on August 5, 2013.

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.
