Matty's Scott Neitlich leaves Matty

Scott "Toy Guru" Neitlich, the de facto face of Matty Collector (not to be confused with the mascot), has announced his resignation from Mattel in a lengthy interview with AFI. Neitlich is announced as leaving his dream job a...

SDCC/WonFes Highlight Reel: The Scarecroodle edition

SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.

See many of my favorites after the jump.

LEGO reigns as number one toy maker on the planet in sales

Can you believe it? LEGO started 2013 as the number three toy maker in the world before easily overtaking Hasbro's number two spot by the middle of the year. And then a year later LEGO did what seemed impossible and knocked M...

Matty Collector to unleash Doomsday after all photo
Matty Collector to unleash Doomsday after all
by Scarecroodle

After repeated insistence from Matty Collector that the company would NOT be releasing an "Unleashed" Doomsday in any way, shape or form because Club Infinite Earths tanked, Matty has announced that it will, in fact, be releasing that Unleashed Doomsday.

No price point has been announced, but he's slated to sell some time this Winter and will come in a window box diorama. Of course, my inner cynic is under the impression that Matty Collector intended to release the "Unleashed" Doomsday but held off on the announcement so the company would have an easier time moving the less-popular containment suit version. However, I'm just happy that we'll have an opportunity to get on our hands on this one.

Check out the gallery for an image of the Unleashed Doomsday as seen at a previous con as well as the previously leaked packaging (which may not necessarily reflect the final product).

Matty Collector's post-SDCC sale starts at noon EST on August 4th and includes, but is not limited to, the DCU containment suit Doomsday.

Other non-DCU containment suit Doomsday SDCC items up for sale include the Monster High Manny Taur and Iris Clops 2-pack, the MotUC Hordak with Imp (but not the Imp as a treasure chest, which was SDCC-only), the Total Heroes Cyborg, the Arkham Knight Batmobile, and "Turbo Charged" Max Steel.

As such, this is a great opportunity to pick up a containment suit Doomsday if you weren't able to make it to SDCC along with, well, some other stuff like that neat-looking Manny Taur.

[ Order at Matty Collector ]

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.

SDCC 2014: Mattel's Minecraft mini-figures

If you have a slightly uncontrollable love of Minecraft, as I sometimes think I do, then it was perhaps interesting to see a little Minecraft section at Mattel's SDCC booth. Inside that section was a little "chest" you c...

In addition, the booth featured highlights from the DC Superhero and DC Universe Classics line alongside Matty's final DCU web offerings, the Super Powers wave and the final Club Infinite Earths items.

SDCC 2014: Mattel's WWE Panel
by Brian Szabelski

For four years now, I've made. I've learned that not only is it pretty informational, but there's almost always a surprise in store for the folks who attend. I just happened to get spoiled my first year during the Summer of Punk when CM Punk, with WWE Championship in tow, invaded the panel just after his surprising win at Money in the Bank 2011. I didn't quite know if I'd ever run into another panel surprise that would top that.

Well, somehow, this year turned out to be the best WWE-Mattel panel I've been to, for both the figures they showed off ... and the surprise at the end.
