    Attack of the Show update (air date 4/12 and 4/15)

    From the Matty forums...

    SDCC Exclusives to be revealed on Attack of the Show mid April

    Hey gang,

    I know TV Guide reported that the Mattel SDCC exclusives would be revealed on Attack of the Show this week, but we just taped the bit yesterday so it is not set to air until a week so.

    Rest assured we will make sure to announce very big once we confirm the air date. It looks like with so many exclusives to announce they are going to split the bit into two segments over two nights, so we will fill you in on all the info once it is passed out way.

    We're sorry to hear TV Guide mislead a few fans, but you can imagine this is something we have zero control over. This is a big announcement, so you can bet we will have all the details of the true air date as soon as we can!

    Toy Fans
    Okay, everyone, we just got official confirmation that our SDCC product reveals are going to air on Attack of the Show on the G4 network April 12th and April 15th!

    Why two nights? Because the stuff we’re revealing is so good, it couldn’t be done in a single show! Attack of the Show will sneak peek four products each night. We’ll finally put to rest some of the rumors about what we’ll have at SDCC and there are exclusives from some of our most popular collector lines. No, we’re not telling you anything beforehand — you’ll just have to tune in to find out what they all are!

    You can check your local listings for channels/times, but there’s one thing to keep in mind. Although we’ve been given these dates, it’s not a guarantee our segments will be aired. If another big story comes along, Attack of the Show has every right to bump us (which they’ve done in the past), just like any news show. It’s not likely, but if this does happen, we’ll let you know the minute we hear.

    If you don’t get G4, never fear. Just visit this very spot on Friday, April 16th and we’ll have the complete list of SDCC products with images PLUS a couple more reveals!

    —Matty

    P.S. You know, now that I think about it, maybe I can give you a couple of hints… 1) a DCU item will have a ton of accessories, and 2) we have an Avatar™ item that, for the first time, combines a 3-3/4" figure and a 6" figure in one package.

    Thanks for the update. I was always skeptical about this past Monday if only because the fanfare was coming from the fans and not Mattel, and we have been let down before, but glad to hear it's all on track.

    Well…it's good to see that they're actually acknowledging that TV Guide actually started the misinformation! Up till now they were calling it an "internet rumor"!

    Oh, after. If they're splitting it in two, at least one of the segments will go out after EL goes on sale. It seems somehow likely that the MotUC bit will be in the second half.

    Actually Toyguru immediately acknowledged that it was a mistake from TV Guide as soon as we Orgers informed him. And they are being very nice apologizing for something they had no control over.

    I couldn't see where it would air that day anyway since they were not at WonderCon. They would have had to have been somewhere over the weekend with a segment taped for it to have happened Monday. Maybe originally it was going to be that day but G4 rescheduled due to some sort of conflict on their end.

    Man, I can't wait! I'm wondering if the announcements are going to be part of their "Attack this!" segments, or something else entirely. Either way, the announcements can not come soon enough!

    So I guess my only question is this:

    "Why can't Mattel announce their own exclusives on their website?"

    Why does it have to be a scavenger hunt to find a program that I've never seen anyway.

    I agree. I would DEFINITELY prefer this. It also sounds like a LOT of people don't get the G4 network so they can't even WATCH Attack Of The Show. Someone should do a poll to see how many people can actually watch it...

    I know 'pics or it didn't happen' rules the net, so take this for what it's worth: I used to work for G4 and talked to a friend of mine who still does and he said it's probably going to air this Monday, the 12th.

    They can, but this way it gives them a wider audience than the fans they know they already have. I came into the line by chance, I knew of King Grayskull exclusive when it first started but was like "that's an exclusive and I'm not interested" fast forward to the end of last year I found out that this was a full on series and since January have been collecting and following the line. So showing on a show like this could reach fans who didn't know about the line.

    BTW the reason for not caring about KG in the beginning I had only watched 1 episode of 200X until recently.

    Thanks for the heads up Mern-Ra! That's cool that you used to work there. I love AOTS, so for me I love the fact they are offering coverage of MOTUC.

    That would make sense. TG said it would probably air about a week after they filmed it...and they JUST filmed it.

    They will probably have pics up on their site and/or facebook shortly after it airs.
    Besides, it'll be all over the net while the show is still on the air, I'm sure.
    I wouldn't worry about being late to the party if you don't watch it on G4.

    Yeah they do these show announcemnets for publicity and promo. Though I don't exactly understand any reason to promote the line when they're going to keep the numbers so low. But then too, it is just before the subscription goes on so it's enough time to drum up new people to get slammed on the sales day. Those extra people will see a need to get the subscription too and then magically more figures sold. So looking at it that way I guess I can see it.

    when it airs, i'll believe it
    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness
