Mattel Video: 2014 MOTU Giants & Gwildor Final Package
September 22, 2014

A new video this week from Scott at Mattel.   In it Scott gives us a hint as to if the MOTU Giants do well who might be included in a second wave…


Get a close-up look at the 2014 MOTU Giants: He-Man, Skeletor, Stratos & Beast Man. They’re faithful recreations of the vintage MOTU figures in massive 12” scale! Each figure has a twist waist power punch, “rubber band” legs, and vintage-style accessories. They come on an oversized vintage-style blister card featuring watercolor cross-sell art from 1982. We’ve also got a quick look ta Gwildor in his final packaging.

The MOTU Giants subscription (in Monthly and all 4 bundle ) is still open through this Friday 9/25, so head over to and check it out while it’s still open!

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.

    and mattel making sure motu does not die yet and they keep the money from collectors coming. hope the sub does well for i would love to see them get around to trying to do not only Trap jaw that size. but also Evil Lyne and the challenge of Ram man down the road. too bad the one bad part about taking the size up a notch for the figures Mattel wound not be able to do a battle cat or a castle greyskull the figures could fit into. due to the cost

  • Jim Abell says:

    Grayskull I don’t see happening but Battle Cat (and Panthor), maybe, since they could get two product out of the same mold and there wouldn’t be any articulation to engineer, just the saddle and mask.
