    The Secret Power Con Accessory Revealed!
    The Secret Power Con Accessory is: a "Classics" Keldor Dual-Blade Sword that does not separate.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    More Power-Con News:

    • Frosta’s arms are incorrect! Mattel is aware of this and will offer full refunds for subscription holders, but this is the only Frosta that they will make. They will do a free gift as an apology for subscription holders.

    • Temple of Darkness Sorceress is selling FAST! She might sell out and NOT hit Matty.

    • NYCC art show. Oct 10-24. At Toy Tokyo. 20 pieces of art. Some for sale. Free print for first 500. Proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald house.

    • No Battle Ram until the Wind Raider sells out.

    • Re-issue vintage Model kits? Not produced by Mattel. Not sure the molds still exist.

    • The Grayskull preorder minimum number is close to the number of the Club Eternia subscription minimum for 2013. So if everyone who bought a sub buys a castle, the preorder should go through.

    • Castle Grayskull will be available to order/preorder world wide.

    • Still no update on MiniMasters.

    • Mattel still doesn’t have the rights to the 1987 movie.

    Toyguru has posted this cryptic message on Matty:

    Biggest announcement ever

    Be there tomorrow at 11!
    Whatever could this "biggest announcement ever" be?

    From Pixel Dan:
    Big Announcement.....
    Castle Grayskull!!!!!!!






    Based on Mark Taylor's original! Yes!!
    Approx $200 for Grayskull. Not bad!
    Pre-orders start in Fall. If minimum is met, it'll be sculpted and delivered Fall 2013.
    Castle will NOT have electronics so it WILL ship internationally.
    Octavia's tentacles

    Just got home and saw the reveals, I am beyond excited!!! The prototypes look amazing and I can't even speak about CGS without squealing. My question/s is/are about Octavia and her tentacles.

    What will her tentacles be made out of? I'm assuming, given the trouble with Snout Spout, that foam is not an option.

    Will the tentacles be posable? Or will they be more like Slushhead's?

    Will the swords be removable or will they be attached?

    Thanks again for the amazing lineup and the reveals! My only regret is that I couldn't have been there to witness the unveiling first hand.

    The tentacles will be closer to Slushead. The swords are removeable.

    A movie is greenlighted?
    200X has been un-retired?
    A new cartoon?
    2014 will be a stacked year?

    Discuss!
    2014 has been greenlit by management?!?

    Or maybe Castle Grayskull?!?

    Interesting! I doubt it's a Castle Grayskull play set. Not with the decline in sub sales. Should be interesting to hear what it is though...maybe the movie is FINALLY going to be realized?

    I think it's Grayskull, well I'm hoping. I don't think a movie announcement means anything until shooting starts. My other choices would be a second sub or just more figures, or a new cartoon.

    Well, news on the movie front has been heating up quite a lot lately, with Jon Chu being all-but confirmed as director and the producer saying that hopefully it will start shooting next year. Could be something to do with that. Although, Scott usually has a way with words. A very hyperbolic way with words. So I’m not getting too excited. Probably just to announce some MOTU pyjamas or something.

    This all depends on what "Biggest Announcement Ever" means to Scott.

    I'm not picking on Scott but he also said the SDCC Reveals were going to be the best ever and most people thought the reveals were kind of meh. I hope the announcement is big news, something fantastic and I'm looking forward to hearing what it is.

    Cancellation would be a really stupid announcement. Hold out until SDCC if you have bad news so people keep buying your 2012 & 2013 product. Movie & or Grayskull! Let it ride!

    If a live-action movie has been greenlighted into production, then Mattel might give Classics the financial shot in the arm that it needs. We might see a full on media blitz. Hopefully the movie will be good...

    Castle Greyskull or a Filmation sub.

    Cancelling the line would be pretty funny though, especially so early on in the con ... it would really put a damper over the whole thing.

    Coming from 250%, you can call that a decline...

    Can't wait to hear what the news is! I will let you all do the speculating, but I'm not imagining it will be something bad, and will await the good news with bated breath!

    Yes...that's 35% above the bare minimum needed. Which is why things are being scaled back next year.

    Line cancellation? Grayskull? The mind boggles. Sadly, with recent events, I would say cancellation, but there is always eternal hope.

    Sounds exciting! I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. I'll have to check for updates during my lunch.

    Here are my guesses though:

    - New movie and retail line based on the live-action movie (and they will tell us the tentative release date)
    - MOTUC Castle Grayskull
    - New TV show (cartoon or live action)

    If it was going to be bad news...I do not think Toyguru would be hyping it up. I also do not believe the end of the line announcement would be made in-person. Nerd rage = hazardous.
