WWE Basic Series 61 Natalya Review

Natalya has been a pillar of the women’s division in WWE for some time, and I had been waiting for my favorite look to come out so I could finally get a figure of her. I really dug the outfit she wore while she was a valet for Tyson Kidd and Cesaro, and in WWE Basic Series 61 we finally got that toy.

The figure has some pros and cons, so check out the review in the video above to find out if this is the definitive version of this diva or not.

The “Shockmaster” Joins SDCC 2016 Mattel Exclusives

Matty Collector announced another Mattel exclusive for San Diego Comic Con 2016, and this one is here to rule the world!

Joining their other extensive line-up of previously announced items, WWE is getting a new exclusive in the form of the infamous WCW wrestler, The Shockmaster. This poor guy debuted by falling through a wall and ruining his grand entrance, as well as losing his silver-spray painted stormtrooper helmet in the process. The character was a mess and lasted for a very short time, much like this exclusive.

Check out photos and their official description below:

WWE® Elite Figure Shockmaster™ Limited Edition – $30

Die-hard WWE® fans will enjoy the ultimate tribute to the legendary Shockmaster™ with this Elite 6-inch figure. This limited edition figure celebrates the iconic debut of The Shockmaster™ at WCW® Clash of the Champions XXIV, and is packaged in a unique way to recreate his epic fall during his television debut.  He also comes with his entrance coat that was intended to enhance his first ever appearance.  Now WWE® fans have a chance to celebrate one of sports entertainment’s most talked about Superstars!

This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 16, 2016 for subscribers only (Early Access), and from June 17 through June 26 for everyone else (All Access). Orders must be picked up in person at San Diego Comic-Con. Products will also be available for purchase at the convention. Details on this and more to come.

If you don’t know who this guy is, sit back and enjoy the video (and if you do know, better just watch it again):

Mattel Teases SDCC 2016 Exclusive She-Ra Doll

Yesterday MattyCollector.com posted a teaser of the first San Diego Comic Con exclusive.   The speculation is that it is for a 12″ Barbie or Monster High version of the Princess of Power herself – She-Ra.

The pieces of the puzzle look quite enticing so far, and it begs the question of if other characters will be joining this if it is indeed a Barbie doll. I don’t think they could do much justice with Ken as He-Man, but I would not mind seeing the supporting cast from She-Ra appear in this format.


Are you ready for the Most Powerful Woman in the Universe?

Guess who’s coming to Comic Con in 2016? Come back tomorrow for another ‪#‎shera2016‬ reveal! ‪#‎mattycollector‬ ‪#‎PrincessofPower‬ ‪#‎heman‬ ‪#‎shera‬ ‪#‎MOTU‬ ‪#‎MOTUC‬ ‪#‎Mattel‬

NY Toy Fair 2016: ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot figures & proton pack – VIDEO

Whether you like it or not, the reboot for “Ghostbusters” is on its way later this summer, and Mattel and Matty Collector are gearing up for what they hope to be a big hit with their toys. During the Matty Collector event, press got their first look at the new action figures of the four busters, along with a six-inch version of the Staypuft marshmallow man, a winged ghost monster named Mayhem, and the key villain in the film, Rowan, who looks a heck of a lot like the “no ghost” logo minus the red circle. Looks like we got some more plot info at this event along with a glimpse of the ladies in their jumpsuits and packs.

The following day, we got a tour of the Mattel booth which had a few other items from the film, including the mini-ghosts and most importantly – the new proton pack accessory! Not only do we get to see what the back of the pack looks like on the figures, we also see what kids (and some adults) might be wearing when they start pretending to be GB’s again! No word on whether we will see a classic style pack, but we can only hope that if this line does well enough, perhaps Mattel will consider a line of accessories for the original movie that is not a high-priced adult collectible.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Masters of the Universe & Thundercats – VIDEO

Every time I try to get out of collecting Masters of the Universe, Mattel pulls me back in.

During the Matty Collector press event at NY Toy Fair 2016, Mattel unveiled their newest figures for their Masters of the Universe line, which is now all about the classic filmation cartoon show, and also debuted their Thundercats line. The first wave of Thundercats includes Lion-O, Jackalman, Pumyra, and Mumm-ra, and they all look amazing so far. More figures are expected to be announced the closer they get to launching the line later this year.

Masters of the Universe Classics is coming to a wrap, just as their new Filmation line begins. Both are looking great this year, with a new Evil-Lyn, Serpentine King Hssss, and a few vehicles coming out. The Filmation line is what has me salivating, with the first batch of reveals featuring a lot of figures I need to have like He-Man, Skeletor, Clawful, Evilseed, and my personal favorite, Trap-Jaw.

In this video, we get a quick overview of the new bodies for Barbie, which come in four sizes along with flat feet and arched feet, plus the new skin tones and hair styles that bring their flagship doll into modernity.

NY Toy Fair 2016: ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ Dolls – VIDEO

Make way for the DC Super Hero Girls! Originally seen at NYCC 2015, Mattel made the formal unveiling at NY Toy Fair 2016 at their Matty Collector event, with additional items at their actual Mattel booth inside the Javits center.

Above are the dolls and action figures shown during the Matty Collector press event, which includes articulated versions of Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman and Batgirl, along with 12-inch dolls of those plus Bumblebee and Poison Ivy.

At the Mattel booth, we got a tour of the entire line, which also includes some roleplay items and an awesome playset for the action figures. This is a great looking line that I hope does well and expands into a very huge series. I am also very happy that 2016 seems to be the year that Mattel is making big leaps forward in recognizing their female fan base and making action figures that are truly for everyone.
