Mattel’s MOTUC Update and News from Power-Con
September 16, 2013

Today on MattyCollector.com, Mattel did their own recap of the weekend’s Power-Con reveals and news with their in-house pictures:

April 2014 Club Eternia® Figure: Blade

Blade is the first character from the 1987 film to appear in the Classics line. The figure is inspired by the vintage line and sculpted in Classics style by the Four Horsemen, and will include two swords and a “laser” whip.

May 2014 Club Eternia® Figure: Scorpia™

One of the most demanded Filmation characters finally makes her debut! Scorpia™ is a POP bad girl who was one of Hordak’s main henchwomen in the classic TV series and appeared in almost every episode. She’ll feature pincers (like Buzz Off®), her deadly scorpion tail, and a Horde crossbow.

May 2014 Club Eternia® “Oversized” Figure: Battle Lion™

As Battle Cat® is to He-Man®, so Battle Lion™ is to King Grayskull™. Based on an appearance in Episode 35 of the 200X series, his armor is removable and will seat either release of King Grayskull® (figure not included).

Mystery MOTUC Accessory

A mysterious accessory for an upcoming figure was (unofficially) revealed. More details to come at NYCC.

Castle Grayskull® Update

We know we’ve posted lots of photos and videos as production has progressed, but honestly, they just can’t do justice to the real thing – it’s a BEAST! We’re super stoked to see how it’s coming along and can’t wait to ship it to you later this year. For now, have a look at the box art in full color and a closer-to-final castle. This latest model has an elevator with improved functionality, a new paint job, and the chains in the dungeon have been upgraded from plastic to real metal!

2014 Club Eternia® Re-opening 9/20-9/24

Pretty awesome reveals, right? You’re going to want every one of them when they’re released so if you missed your chance to sign up for 2014 Club Eternia®, here’s one more opportunity! We’re re-opening sign-ups from Friday 9/20 9am PT through Tuesday 9/24 11:59pm PT. Want a reminder? Click here to register for email.

Okay, that’s everything from Power-Con. Next up is New York Comic-Con October 10-13 and we’ll have even more reveals!

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.
