ToyGuru Answers your WonderCon Questions and our WonderCon Day One Gallery
April 2, 2011

We have our WonderCon Day 1 gallery live and labled now- You can check it out here!

We will have plenty more news and pictures coming out of WonderCon 2011 so keep your eyes here for the latest news.

Scott aka Toy Guru was kind enough to reach out to us last night and ask what questions fans had coming out of WonderCon and the new Matty reveals we have seen this weekend.   I attempted to gather up all of the questions I had and had seen on the toy boards and he sent us answers back this morning.  If you have a question that I missed feel free to ask it in our Mattel questions forum and I’ll do my best to get them answered.


Batman Legacy Batgirl –

Question:  Will she have that pouch belt she is shown with?  The other belt from the Batgirl 2-pack would be more accurate.

Answer: Yes Batgirl will have right belt. Vendor sent an incorrect sample (all of our Not Final signs didn’t show.)

Hurricane Horadk-

Will his armor be vac-metal like the vintage?
Does he have the dial sculpted on his back like the vintage?
He’s the bonus figure, correct?

Answer: Yes, Hordak will have vac metal and the "dial" on his back.

He is the 3rd quarterly bonus figure for 2011

Does that bat/net thing attach to his back (so he can use it to stick to walls?)
Any chance he has a 2nd head?
Is Leech built from a new bigger buck?
How does he hold his crossbow?

Answer: Leech doesn’t have a second head but his net will suction to glass etc… It does not fit on his back. He is not 100% new, but does have a lot of new parts like chest and arms and lower legs.

Justice League Unlimited-

Do you know how much the Sept 3-packs on Matty will be?

Answer: JLU 3-packs in Sept should be $20 each.

  Thanks to Scott for reaching out to the fans to answer our questions and thanks to Captain Collector and SDComics for our continuing WonderCon 2011 coverage!

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 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,,, 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.
