Miyazawa Model Expo 31: Evolution Toy

This is some pretty deep stuff that Evolution Toy is getting into with their display for Miyazawa Model Expo 31, but I'm going to keep things simple knowing not everyone is a mechahead. First and foremost: It's Albegas! Haili...

SDCC 2012: The Mattypalooza Panel
by Brian Szabelski

If you were a fan of Mattel's figure lines, then the one panel at SDCC that you just had to be at was the Mattypalooza panel. Hosted by Scott "Toy Guru" Neitlich (dressed as the MOTUC character he created for the franchise's 30th anniversary, The Mighty Spector), the panel gave us an early peek at things to come from Mattel's non-WWE lines, and there's a lot to cover! 

In our gallery, you'll find mostly new info from the panel for upcoming figures; that's because even after cutting down on the number of photos we had from the panel, we still had nearly 80 and those were the first to go. In any case, hit the jump for a bit more info on what we can expect from Mattel and their subscriptions in the future!
