    'Son of Zorn' looks like it absolutely copies the Filmation HM&TMOTU style but, like Korgoth, bases its character on the (very adult) versions of dystopian lone barbarian fantasy heroes like Garth,...

    Blaming Barbie sales is ridiculous - Mattel might be the leading "female doll" manufacturer, look at 'Monster High', a line which seems the closest in brand strategy to 1980s MOTU I have seen. I...

    Toy Story That Time Forgot

    The Toy Story gang seem to be up against some snake-men looking characters with MOTU-inspired players in their new short!

    It has been one Hell of a ride. Spawned one Hell of a collection. Caused one Hell of a stir in MOTU fandom. Taught one Hell of a lesson.

    Karg! We need a Karg, Mattel!

    Imagine if the movie had come out today?! A 'Hall of Grayskull' playset with knock-down statues; a prop-sized toy cosmic key; A God-Skeletor helmet.

    The film looks like a SyFy/Corman cash-in goof-fest - but Equilibrium never killed Bale's chances as Batman, nor did Gerard Butler's turn in straight to DVD flick Beowulf V Grendel harm 300 - maybe...

    I also think brand loyalty will have had at least one airing behind closed doors, if the "higher ups" are as we are led to believe they are. Imagine it "The Hasbro guy doing a Mattel movie?! Not on...

    The fact that there was no Jon Chu at SdCc, nor any buzz about any MOTU movie at all, proves to me that, sadly, the project is back in development "heck".
