SDCC 2011 Anticipation Thread - Including Mattel Voltron and MOTUC Reveals!

Post by Xenaphobia on Thu Jul 14, 2011 8:25 am

Since SDCC 2011 is just around the corner, I thought I would see what news and reveals everyone is looking forward to.

As a child of the 80's, SDCC appears to have the potential to be a personal "best ever" in terms of news and reveals, including ALL of the following:

- more MOTUC from Mattel, hopefully including the first vehicle, Swiftwind, She-Ra V2.0 (with "sitting" action) and much MORE;

- new Voltron Classics from Mattel, hopefully including all five Lions and in-scale pilots (plus Sven);

- new TMNT Classics from Playmates, hopefully including all four turtles and at least a few confirmed secondary characters like Splinter, April, Casey and Shredder;

- new Thundercats Classics from Bandai, hopefully including reveals of Cheetara and Panthro (although I must admit to being disappointed with the lastest production photos of Lion-O and Tygra, especially the varying colours used for the "flesh/fur" and the mismatched colours used for various joints);

- more DCUC from Mattel, hopefully including some Wildstorm/Authority characters thanks to the new "combined/rebooted/re-launched" DC Universe; and

- new/re-launched Marvel Legends from Hasbro, hopefully including a decent amount of Avengers to tie in with the movie next year.

What is everyone else looking forward to?

How Club Lion Force Works

That means you'll own all 5 lions needed to build the colossal 23" Voltron robot and all 5 pilots needed to complete the Voltron Collect and Connect™ light-up sword.

You’ll also receive the club-exclusive for 2012, Sven, the original pilot of the Blue Lion!

I'm looking forward to all of those 80s collections, plus news on Ghostbusters.

Know which exclusives I want to track down but haven't done anything about it yet - just waiting on that pesky tax return. For me: BA Faker, Marlena, Swamp Thing, Indy six pack and maybe Lion-O....

Yes.

Each pack-out includes the exact same figure/accessories. The only difference is the packaging/bio.

I would like a lot of the stuff being offered, but how/where is everyone ordering them? I dont have much faith that I'll be able to get it through hasbrotoyshop for the gi stuff, but is there anywhere in particular I should go to try and nab these things?

Ah, so just ebay. I was thinking perhaps there were sites accomadating for this or something.

Cruising ebay for the Zaranas, and my god, scalper's much? But to be expected, but its a double nut punch when they decide that 30bucks or more for shipping a single figure is justified.

Might have to try my luck on the hasbro store. Failing that, I'll have to pass me thinks.

Pity that so many cool things are soooo hard to get for a semi decent price, isn't it!

That will most likely be the case. Considering it will go up on sale at time suitable only for people in the states, it wont be a surprise if we cannot find it even five minutes after it starts.

I would have liked zarana both versions, that cool indy pack, starscream / skystriker and a few other odds an sods !!

Wish there were pre orders at normal prices for those of us on this side of the deep blue!

It all sounds too fan-boy to me, but the links seem valid (to my limited IT knowledge).

Cheers.

So DCUC will have regular store releases plus the Matty Collector items?

Surely they could have waited until after SDCC to organize all this????
