Here I was minding my own business on Twitter today when I saw a strange tweet beaming out of the Mattel offices. They're announcing a new Mattycollector program, purposely light on details, called "Mad Matty Mondays". It sounds like a great deal, if only you knew what you were buying...
Previously, it's been stated that "shipping rates are billed based on weight", but ordering 2 sets of Battle Stands (under a pound) currently costs the same as shipping two figures (typically a pound and a half or more). While we understand that a figure like Panthor should and does cost more to ship, why do we not see lower rates for lighter items?
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.
Attack of the Show's met up with Mattel's very own Scott Neitlich to find out what they have in store for San Diego Comic-Con 2011 and it's a doozy. The exclusive video is availabe after the jump
Even though Mattel couldn't make it NYCC this weekend, that didn't stop them from making a splash in the headlines. Amidst the great pictures being beamed back of DC Direct's Batman, Inc line and MU Cable (complete with Baby Jean!) came a slew of pics and updated info on Mattel's collector lines.
