MattyCollector has unveiled Mattel's SDCC exclusives (only 10 weeks away!), and it might be me, but I think this year's offerings are an improvement over 2011. First up, there will be a new Masters of the Universe Classics figure at SDCC: Vykon (US$30), one of the pitch prototypes from 1982 who will come with his barbarian outfit, a boss-looking military outfit (with tank head!) and space outfit with jetpack. I know which exclusive I already will be fighting people over.
For DC Comics fans, you can look forward to a Polly Pocket three-pack of figures (US$19.99) featuring tiny versions of Posion Ivy, Catwoman and Harley Quinn. Speaking of tiny, there's also a Tiny Titans five-pack (US$20) featuring Starfire, Robin, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in 1.5-inch form. Rounding out the line-up will be something that sends Rio into conniptions: an 8-inch figure of Death from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series (US$25) that comes with a skull base.
Also on the list is Dana Barrett as Zuul from the Ghostbusters line (US$25). She was actually unveiled last year at SDCC as a prototype for a regular release this spring ... but it appears that's changed. Finally, this year's Hot Wheels-themed release is Mater from Cars 2 (US$30) in a piece that hasn't been revealed yet, but the description makes it seem less like a car and more like a diorama.
