Masters of the UniverseÂ® Vykronâ„¢ ($30)
If clothes make the He-ManÂ®, then this pitch prototype for the 1982 lineup is destined to be the star of the MOTU 30th Anniversary celebration thanks to a choice of three outfits: barbarian, spaceman, and military warrior! Youâ€™ll get him in-package dressed as a barbarian only at SDCC , but you can find him here at MattyCollector.com after the show packed as a spaceman or military warrior (all three outfits are included regardless of where heâ€™s purchased). Want to know more about this multi-purpose warrior? Set includes one â€œbuck,â€ or figure, with three different outfits/helmets to interchange between space, military and barbarian looks. Check back for the history of Vykronâ„¢, soon to be disclosedâ€¦
Poe’s Thoughts: Amazing. I suspect there will be fans who will hate this set, but as someone who cheerfully embraces the goofier and more sci-fi elements of MOTU, I think it seems really fun. Is it better than getting, say, Modulok? Well, no. But this is arguably a good convention exclusive, because plenty of fans can happily pass on it. On a side note, have we ever seen pics of the original prototypes?
DCUÂ Tiny Titans ($20)
They may be miniscule, but theyâ€™re mighty! The core team ofÂ Tiny TitansÂ is rendered in 1-1/2â€ scale in this 5-pack of collectible figures includingÂ Robin,Â Raven,Â Starfire,Â Cyborg, andÂ Beast Boy. Sidekick City Elementary is just a quick bus ride away with packaging featuring specially commissioned artwork fromÂ Tiny Titansâ€™ series creator. The display base has both the officialÂ Tiny TitansÂ logo and a â€œflightâ€ stand just forÂ Raven.
I haven’t read Tiny Titans but I’ve heard good things, so this seems like a nice set.
DC ComicsÂ Vertigoâ„¢ Death ($25)
Some envision Death as a grim reaper or dark angel to be feared. But as created by Neil Gaiman forÂ DC Comicsâ€™ line ofÂ VertigoÂ comics, the Sandman`s older sister is pretty, perky andÂ alwaysÂ gets the job done. She`s been around since the beginning of time and is exactly the kind of girl you`ll want to follow into the unknown. Our 8â€ figure of Death wears her trademark ankh necklace and comes with a skull-themed display base.
And after all the discussion of Vertigo being off-limits to DCUC… The sculpt looks great, but I’m wondering, is this a statue or a figure?
Ghostbustersâ„¢ Dana as Zuul ($25)
â€œThere is no Dana, only Zuul!â€Â Our long-awaited 6â€ figure of Dana Barrett as Zuul from the first Ghostbustersâ„¢ features authentic, film-accurate sculpting right down to her golden gown. And, with two interchangeable lower bodies she can stand or, when she tires of waiting for the coming of Gozer, sit on the included bench display.
No question here – this is a statue. Pass.
Disney â€¢ Pixar CarsÂ 2012 Comic-ConÂ Mater ($30)
This yearâ€™s Comic-Con vehicle captures the hilarious scene fromÂ CarsÂ 2 when our beloved Mater finds himself in a Tokyo bathroom stall. Just like in the movie, Mater is surprised with flashing lights, catchy music, and a thorough scrub down! This memorable moment comes to life with moving side jets, as well as a jet that springs up to clean Materâ€™s undercarriage, lifting his back wheels off the floor. Covered in suds, Mater experiences hi-tech action unlike anything heâ€™s ever seen in Radiator Springs!
Blah blah blah Cars…
Polly PocketÂ®Â DC ComicsÂ Villains Set ($19.99)
It’s a guaranteed adventure with this trio of comic-book character costumes for PollyÂ® and her friends! PollyÂ®, LiliaÂ® and LeaÂ® arrive in a themed 3-pack dressed as their favoriteÂ DCÂ ComicsÂ villains:Â Catwoman,Â Poison Ivy, andÂ HarleyÂ Quinn.
I’m not sure how popular the She-Ra pack was last year, but these are cool, I guess.
