Since Attack of the Show’s strangly decided not to focus on the He-Man items last night, it fell back to Mattel to give us our first good look at the 2011 exclusives. They’ve come to our aid early this morning with images and information on the upcoming San Diego Exclusives for MOTU Classics, DC Classics, Voltron, etc.
Masters of the Universe® Classics Queen Marlena™ Figure ($25)
The good queen of Eternia® is finally here to complete the Eternos Royal Family. Marlena isn’t coming empty handed… she includes her royal green dress, scepter and sword, plus an interchangeable space helmet head, rifle and blaster pistol to transform her back into her fighting days as Captain Glenn™, Heroic Galactic Adventurer™! And as an added accessory, Queen Marlena includes Cringer™, Prince Adam’s loyal pet and secret identity of Battle Cat®! Marlena is packed as Queen Marlena™ Heroic Queen of Eternia™ for SDCC then as Captain Glenn™ Heroic Galactic Adventurer™ for Mattycollector.com after the show. Each pack comes with all the parts you need for both figures, but each includes a unique bio specific to how she is packed.
DC Universe Classics Swamp Thing (plus Un-Men in SDCC packages) ($30)
This fan-demanded character is available for the first time in the DC Universe and is the first ever DC Universe character to feature endoskeletal articulation! Vowing to protect the environment and his swamp home, Swamp Thing comes in a paper pulp mold of a Swamp Thing head and houses Swamp Thing himself! No ordinary packaging can contain Swamp Thing, so he’ll be packed in a shipper box with the Swamp Thing head peering out. He’ll be available July 15th here at MattyCollector.com, then at SDCC. Pick him up at SDCC and he’ll arrive with mini-figures of Un-Men Ophidian and Cranius! Note: Un-Men mini-figures are only available at SDCC and will not be sold with Swamp Thing on Mattycollector.com after the show.
Voltron® Blazing Sword Voltron ($30)
Check out the first ever Voltron action figure from Mattel! Completely authentic to the original series, he’s highly poseable with 22 points of articulation and can transform into different action poses. Comes complete with a translucent sword so you can “Form Blazing Sword!” Blazing Sword Voltron will only be available at SDCC and on MattyCollector.com.
Ghostbusters™ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man ($70)
Stay Puft is the largest item ever made by Mattel and sold at SDCC, standing at over 20″ tall! Our favorite squishy villain is made from soft foam and features articulation at the arms, head and legs. A huge city diorama is included in the packaging – perfect for displaying your entire Ghostbusters collection! He’ll be available first at SDCC, then here on MattyCollector.com.
Young Justice Superboy in Cloning Chamber ($20)
This show-accurate figure recreates the scene from the pilot episode when Robin, Aqualad, and Kid Flash discover the mysterious Project Kr, where the Light has commissioned “The Weapon.” Using Superman’s DNA – without his knowledge or consent – Cadmus has force-grown the Superboy, using telepathic Genomorph-Gnomes to make a virtual slave of Superman’s son. The cloning tank includes Superboy plus 3 telepathic Genomorph-Gnomes, and with the press of a button, the inside of the cloning tank lights up a glowing blue. This version of Superboy will be available at SDCC, then on MattyCollector.com.
Green Lantern Kilowog ($25)
Standing at nearly 8” tall, this is our biggest, boldest Kilowog to date! Sculpted directly from the digital files provided by the movie makers, this fully articulated figure is in scale with 6″ Movie Masters® figures sold at retail. He’ll be available first at SDCC, then here on MattyCollector.com.

Official Images from Mattel”
Marlena looks better the more we see of her! I can’t believe we’re finally making her!!
Well, they’re finally making here, right? 🙂
Looks like a slew of good stuff this year. Marlena & Swampy steal the show, but I’m loving the cartoon Voltron too!
It seems like a good showing this year, definitely.
The Voltron was a total shock to me! Glad to see Mattel is jumping on the interest.
I love the Swamp Thing. I just hope it stays nice over the years!
The Four Horsemen pointed out that Mattel’s been doing that with Barbie over the years, so we can hope!
That’s good to know. I hope so because Swampy’s going to be in my collection for a long time.
Cool with what I seen except for those polly motu figures.
I think they’re funny. I’m not buying them, but they’re funny.
What funny too is that in a way, those are much more iconic than the MOTUC versions . . .
Captain Glenn, Heroic Galactic Adventurer = AWESOME!!!
Queen Marlena = blah……….
I’m tempted to get two of her.
I am getting two of her. It’s practically two different figures.
I can’t remember the last time I bought doubles of a figure (excluding the GLC Green and Yellow Lanterns that actually make two figures), but I’m sorely tempted to get two Marlenas to display in both of her outfits.
They really are two different looks. That’s a good idea.
i can’t help it, i like the movie ‘wog. sue me.
He actually looks pretty good.
Better than a lot of the figures that are actually making it out to retail, that’s for sure.
Seriously, why is a character as important as Kilowag a convention exclusive? Maybe he could have been the MM C&C figure, rather than a crappy-looking Parallax that you need to buy 11 figures to make.
I agree w Cade – Captain Glenn is awesome.
I have no interest in Heman and have none of the toys, but that is just super keen. Also no interest n the queen but the good Captain is so retro cool I just want her.
SWAMP THINGS LOOK AWESOME!!
I wish more people were talking about that Voltron! It looks great and it’s got good articulation and most important ITS VOLTRON!! I know there’s been some high end stuff, but the world needs a good Voltron line!!
I think you hit the nail on the head there. It’s Voltron, it looks iconic, it’s got good articulation, what more is there to say? Oh, and the package is voiced by Peter Cullen (never thought I’d type those words).
Swamp Thing takes it for sure. I do like Marlena too. Nothing with as awesome packaging as Starro from last year.
I’ll add my thoughts on the ones I may get:
MOTU Classics Queen Marlena – I really like the 50’s spacesuit look. It has a very nice retro feel. The number of accessories for Captain Glen and Queen Marlena also helps (though the pistol looks like a repaint of Adora’s). Cringer’s somewhat disappointing.
DC Universe Classics Swamp Thing – He looks really cool. I like all the little details and the hidden articulation. I am concerned about how well the “skin” will hold over time. Also making the mask biodegradable seems kind of jerk-ish to me considering your paying for it.
Blazing Sword Voltron – He looks pretty cool as well. I like the amount of articulation he has while looking like the original series’ animation model and that he comes with both regular and blazing sword. If I don’t get him, I know someone who may want me to get him. However he seems to be lacking ankle tilts and some hip articulation.
Green Lantern Kilowog – He looks tempting for the most part. I may get him. I heard a rumor that he’s not going to be sold at any big box retailers due to him being “too big”. I hope this isn’t true because that would just be dumb, not to mention that it may screw-over any kid that may want to get him after they’ve seen the movie.
Out of curiosity, how tall is the C&C Kilowog?
Hot Wheels Back to the Future and Franken Berry Vehicles – I know a Hot Wheels collector that may want them, especially the back to the future one (when we see it). Personally, I have no interest in them.
C&C ‘Wag is 9″, which is what Mattel has stated is the upper limits of the C&C figures (not counting that godawful Movie Masters Parallax C&C, which will require the purchase of 11 regular figures at $15 a pop to complete).
Or $20+ dollars a fig (not including tax) if you live in Canada.
