Mattel Non-NYCC Coverage:
MOTU & DC Classics Updates

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.

Most Requested Figures: Panthor (Head Sculpt Poll)

...and we're back! Did you miss us? We missed you. We experienced some technical difficulties on Wednesday night that crashed the site and caused some other behind-the-scenes problems, but we're all better now (we hope!).

We get a lot of MOTU requests in our inbox that go unused. It's not that we don't appreciate them, it's always nice to see requests for some of our favorite MOTU characters, but Mattel makes it seem like the list is made and no amount of requests will change anything. It won't move up Roboto or help Extendar's chances. Still, the requests come in and we decided to toss at least one MOTU character into our 1st quarter poll (voting begins 4/16!). We looked at the e-mails and chose Panthor because we don't agree on how he should be done.
