Mattel has debuted their exclusives line-up for the forthcoming San Diego Comic-Con on tonight’s episode of Attack of the Show. Here are photos taken right off the TV screen using my snazzy camera but for better, official photos please visit www.ActionFigureInsider.com starting tomorrow (Friday 4/29) for their coverage.
DCUC Swamp Thing ($30)is something I kind of expected to be honest. Given how popular the line has been and the previous Comic-Con releases for this line I think it is a great idea for collectors, casual and completionists alike, to try and get you hands on this at the show considering that Un-Men critters offered as the “Show Only” exclusive. I guarantee this is a sell-out day after day at the show. He comes in a bio degradable mask packaging!!!
If you need some Ghostbustin’ then there is no better purchase than the MASSIVE Staypuft figure ($70). He may not be in scale compared to the other figures in the line but if you really want that action I am sure you can but the Halloween costume. The opening packaging is pretty sweet with a approximate four foot long city scape diorama.
And of course they couldn’t pass this year’s highly anticipated Green Lantern live action film without including a massive Movie Masters Kilowog ($25). The Green Lantern franchise has been casting an undeniable shadow over the entire comics industry for the past few years and the upcoming movie is no exception. This is just another of the MANY figures that Mattel is releasing for the movie though.
All in all this seems like another successful year for Matty’s offerings. I will be excited to introduce all of the little plastic men I keep in a display case to their new “brothers” come July. Just ship this from the show if you can!
