This summer was a challenging time for me as a MOTUC collector. The loss of our subscription sent me back to the Monthly Matty Madhouse. The con exclusive Faker had me (successfully) watching TRU.com like a hawk, but another TRU 2pk, Zodac vs Green Lantern, slipped through my fingers... until now.
Wow. It’s been almost three months since I reviewed any MOTUC! Between losing our MOTU subscription and Vault getting itchy to do a few, I haven’t had to haul out Castle Grayskull since Battleground Teela. Only fitting though, my return to MOTUC reviews is another fan requested figure, Battle Armor Faker!
Some non-Horde characters like Rattlor & Tung Lashor make appearances as members of the Horde in various media. Are there plans incorporate their Horde status into the bios or to maybe include extra Horde armbands when they're eventually released ?
ToyFare #163 (on-sale today) has images of the newest MOTU Classics figures: She-Ra's adversary Catra and a Hal Jordan vs. Zodac 2pk for Toys R Us. Along with these reveals, Mattel has given collectors an online image of Catra from behind as well as the full schedule (chock full of reissues) up through May 2011.
Last year, someone at Mattel got this crazy notion to package MOTU & DC Comics figures together. Honestly, it's the kind of oddball idea that I have to appreciate, but I wish the final product were as cool as the idea. Today, I'm looking at Aquaman vs. Mer-man & Hawkman vs. Stratos.
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.
DCClassics.Com: DCUC15's Jack Knight looks like it's going to be a standout figure for the wave... from the front. Will the back of his jacket feature his star emblem?
