Why would it be an April Fool's Joke? It’s February.
Also, who said they’re being released at retail?

My feedback thread
However, I fully agree that they would pull any sort of AFJ (if they did) in the issue that was on-sale in April.
Anything beyond that, including the Skeletor pictured beside the "DC He-Man" in the first post, has no explanation beyond speculation. And the ToyFare issue is not yet widely available for proof of the first part.

Pardon me...I skimmed. So is the consensus that these are phonies, because I don't like the looks of this...
Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

If it comes in a nice box with a clear window and the figures in front of a replica of that classic comic...I'm all over it!
Superman better be in MOTUC style. If not, thats lame as hell in my opinion.
Please visit my store for custom MOTUC accessories and services.
if true it is a crazy awesome 2 pack and i would almost by one.
on a side note i HATE april fool's jokes, especially in magazines since it takes a LONG time to let the joke be known. in news outlets like toyfare it can be downright dangerous since you all have seen what sort of crazy rants we get from fans on the littlest of things concerning MOTUC. LOL
I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!
I really hope that this is only a custom. If this is a SDCC exclusive...
Well, I don't know what to believe. Guess we'll know something Wednesday...
I got an idea for another 2 pack!! Mo-Larr and Question in "Awkward Dentist Visit" or "Open Wide!!"
It's not been unknown for magazine dates to get really silly amounts of time, like seven or eight months, ahead of where they should be. In consquence, retailers ignore the date completely, and just remove and return any remaining copies when the next issue comes in (except comic shops, who mostly buy non-returnable).
Hence 'historical "made sense at the time" reasons'. Because it doesn't make sense today.
ok so now people are saying there are a bunch of reveals in toyfare including ramman, orko, and others..... .....
So... are there ALSO 4 new character reveals at toyfair... or are these the figs being shown at toyfair...
That is very obviously just a joke from someone with a wicked sense of humour on Facebook (Ram man, Orko etc.). The Superman thing looks legit.

Legit or not, I do like the looks of both that He-man and Skeletor.
Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!
I'm gonna go with the whole...

I absolutely refuse to buy anything published by Wizard Entertainment, but I'll give the issue a look over this weekend. I highly doubt there will be anything in it though.
