Mattel gives us one last fakey list

Just for laughs/to rub salt in the wound, depending on your perspective:

  • Purchase a membership to Club Eternia for $20 and you’re guaranteed to receive all of the monthly Masters of the Universe Classics figures released during the year. You’ll also receive club-exclusive Fan Choice Create a Character – 100% sculpt (update based on SDCC panel vote: Sorceress, Ram Man, Rokkon) and an all-new bonus map poster of Future Eternia Under the Reign of King He-Man!
  • Starting January 2012, you are automatically shipped the Club Eternia Monthly Figure every month for a total of twelve months (January through December). For 2012, you will also be shipped four beast figures or multi-packs and four character variant figures at various intervals throughout the year. You are billed as figures ship. Figures revealed to date are Eldor(January), Sweet Bee (February) and Stinkor (March). Also in March is the beast/multipack – Classic Movie 3-Pack featuring Julie, Kevin and Det. Lubic ($60.00).

I don’t even understand the joke about the fan create-a-character–wasn’t the original 1980s create-a-character contest all about creating new characters like Fearless Photog? Why the list of established characters? Even their jokes are confusing.

At least we can rest assured there will definitely be no Classic Movie 3-pack. They (almost certainly) don’t have the rights, and that would be the most boring set ever. No one, not a living soul, needs a Kevin figure.

Anyway, again, this mess will all be over by 3pm PT, when the Mattypalooza panel should be over (it starts at 2).

  • Great. So basically Mattel is just telling us every character they could possibly make and some characters they probably have no intention to.

  • Hey, if we got Kevin than we could kitbash a halfway decent Tom Paris figure from Voyager. Anyone else with me on this?

  • Sunday? They are revealing the official figures today.

    I still say this us just PR spin and the first list was real.

  • You know, revealing a fake list or two would have been funny if it had clearly been fake. Zombie Randor, Disco Skeletor, Kevin, He-Man v12, Dream Date He-Ro, listing things like this would have been funny and clearly playful. To list so many actual characters that fans want figures of, however (although I do realize that somewhere there is someone who wants Kevin) just seems to be somewhat mean spirited unless Mattel really plans on announcing all of them for this year.

    Everytime I see a character on one of the lists, I generally tend to associate it with someone I know or someone I've seen on the forums who had really been campaigning for and looking forwards to the figure. To think that Mattel would announce it just for fun, knowing that they are going to be directly dissapointing some folks just irritates me a bit.

  • I liked the idea of King He-man or King Adam!! It could be a nice figure and a good increase to Motu history!!
