LiveClubThirdEarth_takeoverBanner

One of the big surprises this past year at SDCC was the discovery that Mattel had acquired the Thundercats license. This news was immediately followed up with the announcement of a new Thundercats action figure subscription to be available on MattyCollector.com. They even had two early versions of Lion-O and Jackalman.

SDCC 2015: Mattel has acquired the Thundercats license and has product at the show

MATTEL-thundercat-logo

ToyNewsInternational is reporting that Mattel’s presence at SDCC will be marked by the acquisition of the Thundercats toy license. Mattel has figures to show off based on the classic cartoon in scale with MOTU Classics figures. Lion-O and Vulture have, reportedly been sighted on the floor at SDCC.

Bandai last had the license in 2011, accompanying a failed reboot of the cartoon series on Cartoon Network. With MOTU Classics supposedly winding down this year, Mattel needs another big franchise to supplement MattyCollector. It sounds like they have found that in Thundercats.

We will be reporting further updates as the week and coverage continue!

Botcon 2013 Exclusive Obsidian revealed

obsidianALTweb

Due to a scheduling error, we are running a little behind in our week of Botcon reveals, so here is another! Obsidian!
Obsidian, like Strika, is another character from Beast Machines ported back to Machine Wars in his former Autobot glory. Obsidian uses the Hunt for the Decepticons Highbrow mold with a newly tooled head. He looks pretty great in robot mode, especially with those rotors on his arms like his Beast Machines design. The alternate mode is a bit more of a departure considering Obsidian was a helicopter in Beast Machines.

Here is a side by side by of the toys for Strika and Obsidian from Beast Machines.
