Mattel SDCC news

Over on Mattycollector, Mattel has announced its panels for SDCC:

Comic-Con is coming!

For us toy collectors, the granddaddy of events has to be San Diego Comic-Con. The 2009 show starts July 23rd (preview night July 22nd) and runs through July 26th, and this year I’m bringing more cool stuff than ever before!

First off, we’ll have not one, but TWO fan panels at the show:

Mattel & DC Comics, a Powerful Partnership
Friday, JULY 24
11:00 AM – 12:00 NOON

Friday, JULY 24
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Then, visit me at Booth #2845, and you’ll find tons of new toys either just coming on the market or soon to come. We’ll have Ghostbusters™, DC Universe, DC Universe Classics, Infinite Heroes, Justice League Unlimited, Masters of the Universe Classics, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Disney/Pixar CARS, Toy Story, Hot Wheels, Scene It? The DVD Game, and the insane new Mindflex game — plus a few surprises!

Products will be sold starting preview night. Customer service and safety is our number one priority, so we’ll have a separate booth run by our Toy Club to handle sales. Lines will only be allowed to get as long as the designated roped-off area, but “fast-pass” tickets will be handed out to reserve your spot later that day. Limits on all exclusives will be six per person, per visit to the Mattel booth.

If you choose to wait in line a second time, you’ll be eligible to buy another 6 figures (there will also be a limit of six figures for online purchases after the show). It should all go very smoothly for the best buying experience yet!

We’re going to have plenty of gotta-get products available for sale, including (click each for all the scoop):

Can’t make it to Comic-Con? Fear not, fair comic fan! You’ll be able to get everything listed above on starting at 12:00 Noon on Monday, August 3rd, except these items:

  • SDCC variant He-Ro
  • SDCC variant Buzz Lightyear (with “Andy” on his foot)
  • SDCC Gleek (but the onder Twins without Gleek will be available)

Whew! That’s it for now, but stay tuned to, because I’ll have more news as Comic-Con gets closer.

  • Does anyone have the pricing on all these items?

    3-3/4″ scale Buzz Lightyear figure

    Justice League Unlimited Green Lantern Origins 3-pack

    Masters of the Universe Classics He-Ro figure

    Ghostbusters™ Classics Dr. Egon Spengler™ with Slimer

    I'm sure I've read some of the prices, but I need to know the prices on these. Cheers.

  • @Poe: When will a Transformers 2 review section be put up? I saw it last night and Optimus Prime was so bad ass. Insane!

  • @Jim: I will not be reviewing Transformers 2. But I could put up a post for people to discuss it…that's probably a good idea, actually.

  • Cool! Thanks Poe! 🙂 I guess your not into the whole michael bay action flicks. lol

    A lot of ppl seem to either hate or love his work.

  • I think I'm losing Nerd-points here but I'm more excited about that 3.75 Buzz than I am about the rest of the items – is it fully poseable? If it is I'm gonna need one…..Buzz Lightyear on the Big Milennium Falcon with Hellboy, MU Cap America and Indiana Jones is a lot of 3.75 dreams all come true……

  • @Motorthing: Looks to be quite poseable. Probably at least as poseable as the one I reviewed on my blog the other day. I too am looking forward to it.

  • @Poe: Yup, when i saw it again 2 days ago..made me really want a stay puff marshmellow man!

  • Actually August wqill be expensive. He-Ro and Wonder Twins will be on Matty August 3.

  • Damn Mattel and their idiotic Gleek policy! I hope all those Wonder Twins sets rot on their shelves because they wouldn't reproduce a 5-cent plastic monkey.

  • The massive amount of stuff that Mattel has planned for this year at SDCC is great actually. But the only figure I'm interested in is He-Ro.

    I'm also kind of glad the Q&A sessions take a break until August 15th. There has been so much info passed between the fans and Mattel this year that is hard to to keep track of it all! Frankly, I can't believe they'll have even MORE to show us at ComicCon! Well the 2 remaining 2009 figures for MOTUC should be interesting and possibly anywhere from 2 to 4 figures in 2010 could be shown including Battle Cat. Also hope the lineup for DCUC 12 is revealed in full.

  • They said they'll show the next 3 DCUC waves and at least the next 6 MOTUC figures.

  • Still no information on the Anti-Monitor raffle – are tickets only good for one day, or the whole con? So many questions…
