    Friday July 24th...from 11am to 2pm--Mattel's SDCC Panel News and Time

    San Diego Comic-Con 2009—New Toys & More

    June 23, 2009
    By Matty

    Comic-Con is coming!

    For us toy collectors, the granddaddy of events has to be San Diego Comic-Con. The 2009 show starts July 23rd (preview night July 22nd) and runs through July 26th, and this year I'm bringing more cool stuff than ever before!

    First off, we'll have not one, but TWO fan panels at the show:

    Mattel & DC Comics, a Powerful Partnership
    Friday, JULY 24
    11:00 AM - 12:00 NOON
    ROOM 2 MattyPalooza
    Friday, JULY 24
    1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
    ROOM 2

    Then, visit me at Booth #2845, and you'll find tons of new toys either just coming on the market or soon to come. We'll have Ghostbusters™, DC Universe, DC Universe Classics, Infinite Heroes, Justice League Unlimited, Masters of the Universe Classics, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Disney/Pixar CARS, Toy Story, Hot Wheels, Scene It? The DVD Game, and the insane new Mindflex game — plus a few surprises!

    Products will be sold starting preview night. Customer service and safety is our number one priority, so we'll have a separate booth run by our Toy Club to handle sales. Lines will only be allowed to get as long as the designated roped-off area, but "fast-pass" tickets will be handed out to reserve your spot later that day. Limits on all exclusives will be six per person, per visit to the Mattel booth.

    If you choose to wait in line a second time, you'll be eligible to buy another 6 figures (there will also be a limit of six figures for online purchases after the show). It should all go very smoothly for the best buying experience yet!

    We're going to have plenty of gotta-get products available for sale, including (click each for all the scoop):

    * Disney/Pixar CARS Toon Rescue Squad Mater
    * 3-3/4" scale Buzz Lightyear figure
    * DC Universe Infinite Heroes Anti-Monitor figure
    * Justice League Unlimited Green Lantern Origins 3-pack
    * DC Universe Classics Wonder Twins 2 pack
    * Masters of the Universe Classics He-Ro figure
    * Ghostbusters™ Classics Dr. Egon Spengler™ with Slimer

    Can't make it to Comic-Con? Fear not, fair comic fan! You'll be able to get everything listed above on starting at 12:00 Noon on Monday, August 3rd, except these items:

    * SDCC variant He-Ro
    * SDCC variant Buzz Lightyear (with "Andy" on his foot)
    * SDCC Gleek (but the onder Twins without Gleek will be available)

    Whew! That's it for now, but stay tuned to, because I'll have more news as Comic-Con gets closer.

    Eastern time is 3 hours ahead of San Diego, so the DC panel starts at 2pm EST and the Matty Collector panel starts at 4pm EST.

    News should start rolling in soon after each panel with pictures a little later. TNI has been good about posting live text updates during the actual panels the last couple years.

    If you are looking for MOTUC news, we probably won't start seeing anything until 4:30 or 5 on Friday, so you probably don't need to take the day off work.
