SDCC 2011: Toy Masters movie trailer

The history of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is a constantly changing story. This documentary confronts some of the conflicting stories from those who take credit for the franchise’s origins. Having read a bit about the history of Mattel and grazing over this period of their history, I can’t say as that I am surprised by the conflicting stories. Mattel’s corporate culture did nothing but breed this type of in-fighting. I look forward to the release of this documentary.

Mattel’s DC Universe Club Infinite Earths subscription not garnering enough interest

One of the surprise announcements out of SDCC 2011 for Mattel was the discontinuation of DC Universe’s distribution to retail in the form of connect n’ collect/build-a-figure waves. No more build-a-figures would be offered at retail and instead the line would shift to more popular character selections shipped on a unique schedule. That left a hole for MattyCollector.com to fill by selling the figures of characters the line had not yet gotten to along with the more obscure character selections that tend not to do well with retail, but are popular among collectors.

  

In theory, this wasn’t a bad idea. Mattel set up a 9 month subscription that would feature nine monthly figures starting in April of 2012. There would also be three quarterly oversized figures and one club exclusive oversized figure as well. The latter, of which, would be decided by online fan poll based on a selection of revealed characters including, but not limited to, Black Lantern Swamp Thing and Shaggy Man.

The linch pin of this subscription, though, was that a specific number of subscriptions would need to be sold to make it viable. Mattel setup a thermometer to keep track of the relative number of subscriptions on MattyCollector.com to give people an informed view of how close they were to the goal.

Read more about the state of the subscription after the jump.

America’s Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry kicked out of Comic Con for sexy Ĉon Flux cosplay

Adrianne Curry San Diego Comic-Con costume Aeon Flux Ĉon Flux SDCC 2011

So the police kicked a girl out of San Diego Comic-Con for wearing a costume which was too revealing. Oh … and that girl was actually Adrianne Curry, winner of the first “America’s Next Top Model”. Oh yes and she was actually a guest at the convention…

She was wearing a very revealing costume of Ĉon Flux. How revealing? Well it was more revealing than the one worn by Charlize Theron in the 2005 live action film, but it was actually pretty spot on to the costume from the original Peter Chung animated series that aired on MTV in the early 90s.

SDCC 2011: Voltron Force Exclusive Sizzle Reel

If you’ve followed my Twitter, you probably know I haven’t been quiet about how pleased I am with the new Voltron Force cartoon. While slow to begin the new series, and some parts were the new cadets seem forced upon the viewers, the show nonetheless has witty dialogue, good characterization, and definitely a lot of nods back to the original Voltron series, whilst also having a lot of surprises along the way.

So I was happy to come across a exclusive sizzle reel that was shown at the Voltron Comic-Con panel! I will warn those who haven’t watched the show yet, and even those who have, that some major storyline plot hints are dropped in this reel that could be considered rather Spoiler-ish.

You can check out Voltron Force every Thursday on Nicktoons, or can stream the most recent episodes on Nicktoons.com.

I think if you combined the number of all the podcasts we’ve done so far, we hit a hundred episodes with this one. So, we’re doing some creative renumbering and calling this the 100th episode of the Powetcast.

Zac is joined by Crazy, The Captain, and the ever present aDam for talk about beating kids at Pokemon, beating Nazis with a shield, beating ourselves over San Diego news, and finally giving Voldemort a great big hug.
