How do you get a toy collector to buy a second version of a toy he didn’t particularly like? A new, improved deco? That certainly helps. A fun new accessory? Doesn’t hurt. An alternate build a Batsignal piece? Well… damn it. Luckily, the changes to this version make him more palatable.
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.
Ask Matty October 15th Edition
Sometimes I do reviews right away. I’ve turned around some MOTU figures within hours of their arrival. Other times, I get a little behind. That’s the case today. I didn’t pick up the Walmart 2pks at first. I finally got them as a birthday present, but even that was a month ago. Not the most exciting release, but they do warrant a brief look.
