    [Confirmed No] Matty to reveal another SDCC exclusive today. Will it be MOTU related?

    There is speculation that Matty will reveal another MOTU (although not MOTUC) related SDCC exclusive today.

    I can't currently get onto the news area of the Matty site. Presumably they could be updating the news area now.

    Until it's officially revealed, what do we think it's going to be? A promo item for a new line a la last years minis or something unique?

    Update from ToyGuru:
    http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...968#9011075968
    The only two Sdcc items developed by the Matty team were Hordak and Doomsday. All others are developed by the corresponding retail team. We work with all of them to get the reveals when possible, but as these are not items myself or my team work on (ie the MH set), we (Matty.com ect...) don't have as much control on when the reveal is ready. I can tell you (since this is the MOTUC forum) there are no additional MOTU Sdcc sale items. This year our fig is Hordak with Imp!

    If it's MOTU related, my guess would be that oversized vintage Skeletor...

    I thought we were expressly told there were no other MOTU SDCC items to reveal?

    Unless I've read into this wrong, or I'm somewhat out of date, I am aware that there will not be another MOTUC exclusive. But reading between the lines, that's not to say that there isn't another MOTU release. Does anyone know anything contrary to what I've surmised?

    Toyguru specifically said MOTUC. I, personally, am crossing my fingers for a She-Ra Barbie to celebrate her 30th Anniversary. I would love her in the style of Mattel's DC Dolls:

    Barbie as "She-Ra: Princess of Power".

    And somewhat O/T, I don't understand why Mattel stopped releasing the DC superheroines as Barbies. They always seemed to sell well and Mattel has the licence and surely they weren't too expensive to produce since they used a lot of existing Barbie parts (bodies, heads, etc).

    He said no other motuC. He didn't say motu in general.

    That would be cool!
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I think the over-parsing of TG's statements is part of what leads to the unrest in this line.

    I don't know if they did or will announce anything MotU today, but with or without the "C" after MotU, I took the statement to mean that Hordak was all there was this year.

    I think it is pretty much impossible for Matty to manage expectations.

    Just my take.

    To be fair, at separate times he said there were no more "MOTU" items and no more "MOTUC" items:

    "There are other SDCC items to reveal, but Hordak is the only MOTU item." - http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...7/m/2921046868

    "There are no other MOTUC items for SDCC. But there are other SDCC items for other brands that will be revealed over the next few weeks." - http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...7/m/4041046868

    So, who knows what he really meant, but he said both
    Here's how to end the line:
    2015 200x Mini-Sub: Evilseed, Calix, Prahvus, Horde Wraith, Miro, Veena, Hawke

    2016 line: LordMasque, Vultak, Granita, Despara, Dylamug, Hunga, General Sunder,Tuskador, Crita, Lodar, Quakke, Darius

    Quarterly items: Sagitar, Stridor, Night Stalker

    On Tuesday, May 6th, be right here when we divulge one more SDCC item, then on Tuesday, May 13th, we’ll have five more SDCC items! Not enough, you say? We usually save a reveal or two for when it gets closer to SDCC, and this year is no different. We’ve got seriously cool stuff planned and we don’t want you to miss any of it so sign up for email or join us on Facebook, Twitter and in our Fan Forums.

    This is from Matty,I guess they forgot the 5 Sdcc items for today.

    I asked Scott about a She-Ra Barbie back at the 2010 SDCC and he gave me the runaround and told me to ask the Barbie brand about it. He said he had no input with what the Barbie brand does which I knew. He basically blamed the lack of a She-Ra Barbie on the Barbie team even though this would be a crossover item and likely involve him in some way.

    Yeah, I remember that. She-Ra Barbie has been asked about for years. In 2003-2005 (forget the exact year), we had a campaign where we physically called Mattel asked for them to bring back the She-Ra brand, and a She-Ra Barbie was one of the suggestions. I *think* this may have been before the 200X SDCC She-Ra figure was released...my memory is a little fuzzy on the exact time frame.
