I feel that Granamyr is one of the more recognizable characters to spring forth from MOTU. Not everyone may know his name, but a large dragon with a pot belly and horned helmet tends to leave a lasting impression. (Heck, even my mom recognized him.)
I was really surprised when Mattel announced Netossa would be getting the first figure slot of 2013. It’s not because she doesn’t deserve it (because she totally does). I just expected to see some of the more central POP characters first.
Even though I really wanted them, I never actually expected Mattel would get the Filmation characters added to MOTU Classics. But here we are. It’s 2012 and our Club Eternia exclusive is the first ever figure of Shadow Weaver, Filmation MOTU Classics style!
Under normal circumstances, I can’t say that I’d really be looking forward to a She-Ra variant. I mostly bought Bubble Power She-Ra because I needed the parts to “repair” my first release She-Ra, but I’m also going to chalk this one up as caring about the wants of my fellow fan.
A large part of the delay in getting my MOTU Classics Swift Wind review up is because Mattycollector didn’t bother to ship my November order until December, but I’ve been a little hesitant at taking a look at this brightly-colored unicorn since he arrived. This will be my first horse review.
I’ve been really busy this season that I had forgotten about Snout Spout when he arrived yesterday (it didn’t help that Mattycollector took a week to ship him). This figure is one of my favorite childhood toys, but I can’t say that the Classics version is one of my favorites today.
Preview Night seems so different from just a few years ago when it comes to San Diego and its online coverage. In past years, the night before SDCC wasn’t really the place for reveals and the technology wasn’t ready to beam back anything quickly. This year’s Preview Night is almost unrecognizable.
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
I was starting to wonder if Bow was ever going to show up. After Mattel charged us, it took 12 days for the package to arrive. I could’ve mailed a package to & from California 3 times in the same span, but I digress… this is supposed to be a review
June is here! And with it came She-Ra, the first figure with increased production following Adorapocalypse in January. What was the net result of the increase? About four minutes longer than Optikk, a little over ten minutes longer than Evil Lyn, and she sold out faster than Adora.
This afternoon on Facebook, Matty showed pictures of She-Rain package along with our first look at her bio. It’s, um… crazy.
