SDCC 2014: Mattel - Matty Collector Panel / Mattypalooza

The Matty Collector panel at SDCC (or "Mattypalooza") was described as featuring a lot of new Masters-related announcements and, well, little else. However, some major non-Masters news came in the form of an announcement that...

SDCC 2014: Mattel - Masters of the Universe
by Scarecroodle

For those expecting some cool Masters of the Universe stuff at SDCC, Matty Collector apparently didn't disappoint. There were a lot of new reveals (a few of which were shown early) between the Club Eternia and Etheria selections for the rest of this year and the start of next year, a 2015 Mini MOTU series which features a Mini Snake Mountain, giant Masters figures, and more.

There's an absurd amount of stuff to discuss, but I'll try to hit some of the highlights after the jump.

Third Hikari sculpt revealed! It's Skeletor! photo
Third Hikari sculpt revealed! It's Skeletor!
by Scarecroodle

Funko has premiered its long-awaited third Hikari mold and... it's SKELETOR! The iconic Masters of the Universe villain is being released in a frightening gold, black, and red mix (with blue-tinged gloves) which Funko has dubbed the "Mystic Powers" Skeletor.

The Mystic Powers Skeletor could be best described as scary cool. It's probably the most wicked-looking Hikari since the NVS Batman and, well, it might be even cooler than that one. As always, fans have a chance to win the first copy by entering a contest on Funko's Facebook page. The less lucky fans will have an opportunity will have an opportunity to pick him up later this year. Given that he's limited to a higher-than-average 2,000 pieces, the majority of people who want one shouldn't have trouble picking one up.

Funko's Hikari Mystic Powers Skeletor can be pre-ordered for US$50 and is slated for a September release.

[ Pre-order at Entertainment Earth ]
