SDCC is right around the corner and, as we’ve done since 2010, we’re going to offer a limited amount of products to be pre-ordered here at MattyCollector.com for pick-up at San Diego Comic-Con. It’s first-come, first-served and there are no promises you’ll be able to purchase a voucher for every product. But once you’ve got your voucher, you’re guaranteed to get everything at SDCC!
Here’s how the voucher pre-sale works (please read carefully, because there are important limitations):
- Be here at MattyCollector.com on Wednesday May 30th at 9 a.m. PT (noon ET).
- Choose the items you want and add them to your cart. There’s a purchase limit of 6 units per person per product, on all products.
- Your credit card will be charged and a confirmation email (voucher) will be sent.
- To redeem your voucher for the specified products, you must present a printout of the email confirming your order (voucher), along with a photo ID, your 2012 San Diego Comic-Con badge, and the credit card used for this transaction in person on Thursday July 12th, Friday July 13th, or Saturday July 14th from 7 AM – 11 AM or 3 PM – 7 PM in the Torrey Pines room at the Marriot San Diego Hotel and Marina, which is just next door to (and connected to) the San Diego Convention Center.
- If you’re only attending San Diego Comic-Con on Sunday July 15th, this option is not available to you.
- If you don’t pick up your product by the end of the show on Saturday July 14th, your product will go into the products available for sale at the show on Sunday. You may be able to purchase it then, but there are no guarantees.
- The voucher pre-sale ends June 14th at 11:59pm PT, however product is subject to availability so shop early for best selection.
- All sales are final. There are NO REFUNDS so be sure you can personally pick up your purchase(s) at SDCC no later than Saturday July 14th.
- Products cannot be shipped. This option is for pick up at SDCC only, and only available to SDCC attendees (badges will be required).
Now that that’s out of the way, on to the fun stuff! Here’s this year’s list of products created just for SDCC and available for order during the voucher pre-sale:
- Masters of the Universe® Classics Vykron™ (Barbarian)

Not going to SDCC? We’ll have limited quantities of some items available here at MattyCollector.com on Monday, July 23rd at 9 a.m. PT (noon ET). We’re still working out the final list of available items but we’ll definitely have Vykron™ packed in either spaceman or military warrior garb.

Or, join me on Facebook, Twitter and in our Fan Forums and you’ll get reminders there, too. And one last thing… Scott “Toy Guru” Neitlich is posting video previews on the MattyCollector.com YouTube channel , so check it out and subscribe so you don’t miss a single one!
UPDATE: Matty’s Toy Guru released some info to clarify the SDCC Death item they are releasing as well as drops a note on the Dark Knight Rises item I mentioned below.
“Hey DC fans, I’ve been on the boards and have seen a lot of questions about the new 8? Death SDCC Staction figure. She is articulated at the waist, shoulders and neck, but really is a statue on a base. (a super cool amazing statue- of Death herself!)
To clear up any questions, this is not a figure from the DC 6? world. Now that we have The DC Signature Series through Club Infinite Earths on Mattycollector.com, we have the freedom to explore lots more DC 6? executions without retail restrictions (such as pricing and shelf size). This new freedom allowed us to use SDCC to explore new form factors to collect the heroes and villains of the DCU from every era Golden Age to New 52.
We wanted to kick off a Staction execution with a character that had never been done in 6? (yet…) and would appeal to the SDCC crowd. Our Tiny Titans 5 pack is also a great tribute to the series and a fun way to collect ultra cute interpretations of the DCU (well the Titans…).
The 6? line is doing great and will kick off online in 2 weeks with Flash 1 Mattycollector.com May 15 at noon Eastern.
We also have an amazing Dark Knight Movie Master SDCC item to reveal soon (just making some last min adjustments to ensure the lights and sounds work right in the package and all decos are correct!). This one will blow your mind!
Lots more is in store and look for all the latest at our Fan Panels at SDCC (date TBD). See you at the show!”
Today Mattel has finally revealed a first official look at the products they’re planning to have available at this year’s Comic-Con through it’s collector site, www.mattycollector.com. Some items will be available for pre-order through their webpage on Wednesday, May 30th at 9am PT through Wednesday, June 14th at 11:59 pm PT for pick up at SDCC but I expect that many items will be sold out right away on the first day as they have in years past. Also, all will items be sold without a voucher at SDCC as well as online after the show ends but some items maybe be packaged different or have a small variation to differenciate between the convention sales and the online sales. Check back for updates, including images of the Hot Wheels® vehicles and the reveal of something ghoulishly good from Monster High®!
Masters of the Universe® Vykron™ ($30)
If clothes make the He-Man®, then this pitch prototype for the 1982 lineup is destined to be the star of the MOTU 30th Anniversary celebration thanks to a choice of three outfits: barbarian, spaceman, and military warrior! You’ll get him in-package dressed as a barbarian only at SDCC , but you can find him here at MattyCollector.com after the show packed as a spaceman or military warrior (all three outfits are included regardless of where he’s purchased). Want to know more about this multi-purpose warrior? Set includes one “buck,” or figure, with three different outfits/helmets to interchange between space, military and barbarian looks. Check back for the history of Vykron™, soon to be disclosed…
DCU Tiny Titans ($20)
They may be miniscule, but they’re mighty! The core team of Tiny Titans is rendered in 1-1/2” scale in this 5-pack of collectible figures including Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg, and Beast Boy. Sidekick City Elementary is just a quick bus ride away with packaging featuring specially commissioned artwork from Tiny Titans’ series creator. The display base has both the official Tiny Titans logo and a “flight” stand just for Raven.
DC Comics Vertigo™ Death ($25)
Some envision Death as a grim reaper or dark angel to be feared. But as created by Neil Gaiman for DC Comics’ line of Vertigo comics, the Sandman`s older sister is pretty, perky and always gets the job done. She`s been around since the beginning of time and is exactly the kind of girl you`ll want to follow into the unknown. Our 8” figure of Death wears her trademark ankh necklace and comes with a skull-themed display base.
Ghostbusters™ Dana as Zuul ($25)
“There is no Dana, only Zuul!” Our long-awaited 6” figure of Dana Barrett as Zuul from the first Ghostbusters™ features authentic, film-accurate sculpting right down to her golden gown. And, with two interchangeable lower bodies she can stand or, when she tires of waiting for the coming of Gozer, sit on the included bench display.
Disney • Pixar Cars 2012 Comic-Con Mater ($30)
This year’s Comic-Con vehicle captures the hilarious scene from Cars 2 when our beloved Mater finds himself in a Tokyo bathroom stall. Just like in the movie, Mater is surprised with flashing lights, catchy music, and a thorough scrub down! This memorable moment comes to life with moving side jets, as well as a jet that springs up to clean Mater’s undercarriage, lifting his back wheels off the floor. Covered in suds, Mater experiences hi-tech action unlike anything he’s ever seen in Radiator Springs!
Polly Pocket® DC Comics Villains Set ($19.99)
It’s a guaranteed adventure with this trio of comic-book character costumes for Polly® and her friends! Polly®, Lila® and Lea® arrive in a themed 3-pack dressed as their favorite DC Comics villains: Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.
Images of these items are in the works as you read this so be sure to come back soon!
Hot Wheels® Masters of the Universe® Volkswagen Drag Bus
Hot Wheels® Scooby-Doo!™ The Mystery Machine
Hot Wheels® K.I.T.T. Knight Industries Two Thousand
Monster High® – To be revealed. It’s a mystery to us, too!
I also remember reading around Toy Fair that there would be an exclusive for the Dark Knight Rises, but that may have been scrapped.
