Update: images from the panel available at TNI.
Thanks to the texting efforts of Rustin Parr, I’ll be live-blogging the Mattypalooza panel. Click your refresh button (or F5) for updates.
Rustin’s text is below; my comments are in bold.
Danielle is MCing.
Treadaway got the biggest applause.
Club Infinite Earths is DC. Nine figures, three quarterly oversized figures and one big one. Will include Atrocitus, Barry Allen, and Starman, as well as a fan’s choice oversized figure, which people will vote on when they subscribe: Shaggy Man, Rocket Red, Black Lantern Swamp Thing, Metron w/Mobius Chair.
No mention of any Batman characters yet, so no need for me to subscribe. Yet.
WWE Legends goes Mattycollector only, first figure is Andre the Giant.
Club Lion Force – 5 lions and pilots through the club before mass retail, and exclusives.
Vigo will have the Ghostbusters II painting behind him in the package.
Ghostbusters Dana as Zuul coming in April, plus Retro Action 2-pack of Janine and Samhain from Real Ghostbusters
I suppose we had to get another NA character eventually…
November: Snout Spout
& Bonus: 200X-style “Battleground” Evil-lyn
Also: “Bubble” She-Ra (w/ interchangeable head and cape for original look)
orginal art head with extra skull head & Skeletor head
Awesome! Personally I can’t wait for this figure. And he bookends the year w/ Vikor!
Feb: Fisto, Star Sisters 3-Pack
Fisto will have two heads and giant sword
March: Kobra Kahn, also w/ two heads
& Bonus: Thunder Punch He-Man
Filmation rights WERE indeed scored
And…Shadow Weaver is the sub figure.
Who’s surprised? Looks like the leaked list was indeed a leak.
ToyGuru is writing a He-Man comic. They’ll be minicomics that will ship with the first three quarterly figures.
There will be a new Create-A-Character contest for MOTUC.
Hoo-boy. This should be interesting.
Fearless Photog coming in January but is NON-SUB. Same for Four Horsemen-created “Draego-Man” in March, along with four other brand-new MOTU characters over the course of the year to celebrate the 30th Anniversary.
Granamyr coming, fans asked to vote on red or green skin.
Holy crap…this is really something. The fact that the six new characters won’t be subbed is annoying, but these are indeed some pretty big announcements, as promised.
OK, I admit it: Mattel delivered the goods, big-time. Haters gonna hate, but 2012 is going to be an amazing year for MOTU.
