    Why would it be an April Fool's Joke? It’s February.

    Also, who said they’re being released at retail?

    I'm totally confused, I don't know where these rumors are coming from.
    Besides, why mess with MOTU & DC fans if it is a joke?
    Why not an Optimus prime that would come as God Ginrai or a vacuum cleaner instead?

    It's the April issue, For historical "made sense at the time" reasons, magazines are dated months in advance.

    However, I fully agree that they would pull any sort of AFJ (if they did) in the issue that was on-sale in April.

    This is where merging threads confuses people. The ToyFare issue apparently says there's a He-Man/Superman two-pack, including a reprint of an early-80s comic where the two fight and with the HM painted to match the comic (see first post), which will be a ToysRUs retail-exclusive.

    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.

    April issue? Theyre a bit far ahead, arent they? If released this month, surely you would think its the March issue. Anyway, thanks for clearing that up.

    Thanks for the news. And yes, I know the comic. I've got it saved on my computer, as well as many other He-Man comics!

    Hey Tally...I wonder if Mattel will make them into PoP! I mean...Star Sisters...Star Riders... They all could have come from the same place. They're all bejeweled like them too!
    Thanks for the history lesson! Wonder Woman: Princess of Power looked pretty sweet. They should have put it out.. I wonder what stopped them? X-Men and Batman cartoons being too serious around the same timeframe?

    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

    they date magazines ahead of time so that retialers know when to take that issue off the shelf. think of them as expiration dates for periodicals.

    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

    That was the original, "made sense at the time" reason, yes. Then someone got the idea that if they dated TWO months in advance, their magazine would be on the shelves TWICE as long. Before long everyone followed suit (you'll note that this issue of ToyFare will have been removed from shop shelves LONG before April the 1st).

    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.

    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.

    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.
