During this week’s Toy Fair in New York Mattel held a special event where invited press and collectors were allowed to get a hands on sneak peek at all of their offering from the collectors lines (ie: DC Comics, WWE, Masters of the Universe, etc.)
We battled against the masses trying to get their cameras (and eyes) onto the upcoming items from Mattel, such as the Watchmen line-up, the new WWE figures, the first offerings from the campy 60’s Batman license, and of course the MAAASSSSIIIIVVVVEEEE Castle Grayskull playset, available for pre-order HERE.
On the six inch comic properties there was an assortment from Mattel’s DC Signature line as well as the Batman Classics. A new Batman themed on the upcoming Injustice Gods Among Us game looked amazing, and the full Watchmen line-up looked great as well although there was no word on a Before Watchmen set of figures to keep the series running beyond this initial run.
I also found the Star Trek Hot Wheels to be interesting and very cool., as are the Barbie dolls themed on the classic Wizard of Oz movie.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves on this in the gallery below! And stay tuned to @SDCCNerdsAttack on twitter for more info on how you could win these two WWE figures.
