Mattel’s Comikaze 2013 MOTUC Reveals
November 3, 2013

Yesterday Comikaze 2013 kicked off with with Mattel Mattypalooza panel and with it, two new Masters of the Universe Classics reveals.   Announced this weekend were Flutterina, receiving her first toy since 1985 and Intergalactic Skeletor (who is also “New Adventures of He-Man” Skeletor, but apparently there was a rights issue with using the words “New Adventures”).

Intergalactic Skeletor comes with his havoc staff and an alternate battle-damaged Faker head.   The Faker head was still in prototype form at the show so it didn’t sit properly on the neck peg of the figure.

Flutterina comes with her wings (which are articulated at the connection point) her sword and shield.   The Flutterina figure at the show was also a prototype so her head was not connected properly and sat high on the figure and she was not able to hold he sword.

The other new item shown was the promotional cross sell poster that will come with Castle Grayskull ONLY to fans that pre-ordered a Castle in the original order window.  It will NOT come with castles ordered on the “Day of” sale date.    The poster shown was not quite final.   There will still be a handful of tweaks to it.   The interesting thing to note about the poster is that the figures are in the poster in chronological order according to the storyline in the bios.   It starts with Standor and ends with The Mighty Spector.

We will have the rest of our Comikaze 2013 galleries up soon in the “GALLERY” section of AFi.

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.
