Attack of the Show’s Andy Allo met up with Mattel’s very own Scott Neitlich (aka ToyGuru) to find out what exclusives Mattel has planned for San Diego Comic-Con 2011 including Marlena, Cringer, Kilowog, a Carol Ferris Barbie, Polly Pocket She-Ra, & DCUC Swamp Thing! The exclusive video is available after the jump…
And finally… here’s some updates from Toy Guru with all the details:
On the material used for Swamp Thing:
It’s actually not rubber. It is an entirely new process we patented. The closest thing I can think of is the old Art Asylum Star Trek Enterprise 6″ figures (but not the same). It isn’t rubber like Clayface. Bill Benecke and the Horsemen really pulled off an amazing innovative toy!
On the MOTU items not being featured:
We filmed them but AOTS clearly did not air them.
The SDCC MOTUC item will be Queen Marlena. She will come with a sword, staff, Cringer (articulated at the head and tail) as well as an alternate head, space tunic with bubble helmet, riffle, gun belt and pistol to transform her from the Queen back into Captain Glen (or the other way around!)
She will be packed out as Queen Marlena at SDCC and as Captain Glenn on Mattycollector.com after the show. Both versions will have all the parts for both figures but each will have a bio unique to the pack out.
I’m sorry to hear AOTS did not show the footage we shot for this figure, but we’ll have more details posted tomorrow (as well as images and a video changing the figure from Queen to Space explorer) posted tomorrow!
Here’s some screen caps:
