In other news I was totally not paying attention to, this month’s ToyFare features the announcement of a two-pack of MOTUC He-Man and DCUC Superman, which will be available exclusively at Toys ‘R Us. Thanks to Newton Gimmick for the scoop.
I think it’s an awesome idea, and it’s great that Mattel is testing the retail waters for MOTUC. I predict this thing flies out of stores. The He-Man figure is something of a redeco, particularly the belt, the shield, and the “glowing” yellow Power Sword. The 2-pack comes with a copy of DC Comics Presents #47, the issue where the two characters first met.
It looks like there’s going to be a Skeletor 2-pack as well–again, with Skullhead repainted in comic-inspired colors–though which DC character it will come with is unknown (there’s no one other than Superman in either of the cross-overs, so maybe a battle-damaged Supes?).
Will I pick up this set? Probably, if I actually see the thing at TRU. Again, I have a hunch these will be vanishing instantly.
