Toy Fair 2015: MOTU Classics

MOTUC_AFP_Peek-a-blue_Banner

Toy Fair 2015 brings us the first year of Masters of the Universe Classics (MOTUC) without Scott ‘ToyGuru’ Neitlich at the helm. Little if any ado was made about the 2015 Club Eternia subscription being in its last year. Surprising considering the fanfare that Mattel put out during sign ups. Nothing out of the blue was announced aside from a new 200x (6 month) subscription. Probably the biggest news was the bonus item for the newly announced sub.

Toy Fair 2013: Masters of the Universe Classics

Matty_Mantenna5

Mattel had its presentation and showed off most of what we saw was leaked a few days ago. ToyGuru claimed the leak was on purpose, but I don’t think anyone actually believed him. We got our first look at the full sized, fully painted prototype of Castle Grayskull, the first three figures in the new Filmation subscription and more. Join us after the jump for lots of information and pictures!

Toy Fair 2013: Possible MattyCollector reveals

Matty_Mantenna1

I was surfing facebook earlier this evening when I saw a photo of a MOTU Classics Mantenna shared on the Masters of the Universe Classics facebook group and I did a double take. It sure looked like an official photo and legitimate photograph, but who can tell these days. We live in a world of Photoshop mockups. I put all the images from there into a gallery for everyone to see after the jump.

Can anyone verify if these are real?

MOTU Classics Castle Grayskull is officially a go, minimum order quantity met

MattyCollector has announced that Castle Grayskull has met the minimum order number needed to go ahead with sculpting a real model to eventually go into production next year. With little more than some basic design sheet images and a foam mock-up, fans put their money where their mouths were by pre-ordering the colossal playset at the steep cost of US$250. Had the minimum quantity not been met, the project would not have gone forward much like the Young Justice figures planned for next year that could not muster the pre-order minimum. Had Castle Grayskull not gone forward, it likely would have stifled the waning enthusiasm for the line further.

Now that sculpting can begin, Mattel is hoping to have something preliminary to show off at NYTF in February of next year. Pre-orders have opened back up for Grayskull and will remain open until January 4, 2013 at 9AM PT. Fans can now look forward to voting in the Spring for what characters will appear on the box art, which will be done by the same artist who painted the box art on the original Castle Grayskull, Rudy Obrero.

If you have not yet pre-ordered Castle Grayskull, you can do so here.

MOTUC He-Man and BattleCat on sale today for $30 together

He-Man turns 30 years old this year. To celebrate, MattyCollector is having a one-day sale today, October 12, 2012. For US$30 you can pick up the He-Man & BattleCat Party Pak. That is both figures for just 30 dollars. Keep in mind that BattleCat alone sells for $33 by himself. This great deal is definitely the time to pick these two figures up either for yourself or to stow away as a gift for the holidays.

As a side note, this is pretty telling that Mattel went back into production for both He-Man and BattleCat with a significant production run to be willing to sell them for this low of a price.
