  9. Well Mattel is focused on Masters Of The Universe now.
  10. With all the recent Transformers/Ghostbusters mash-up toys we've been seeing from Hasbro recently this really doesn't come as a big surprise, but today Hasbro announced they will be taking over as the master toy license holder for Ghostbusters in 2020. The license was previously held by Mattel but originally it was Kenner that gave us so many great Ghostbusters toys which of course is now owned by Hasbro. Ghostbusters 2020, starring Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon and Finn Wolfhard, is scheduled for release on July 10, 2020. See the full press release below: SONY PICTURES CONSUMER PRODUCTS TAPS HASBRO AS GLOBAL MASTER TOY LICENSEE FOR GHOSTBUSTERS™ New Product Line Launches in 2020 PAWTUCKET, R.I. AND LOS ANGELES – AUG. 21, 2019 – Today, Sony Pictures Consumer Products announced that Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), a global play and entertainment company, has been named the master toy licensee for Ghostbusters worldwide. Under the terms of the agreement, Hasbro will create a wide variety of toys inspired by the franchise and its entertainment properties globally designed to appeal to both fans of the original franchise, and a new generation of Ghostbusters around the world. Hasbro’s Ghostbusters line will be available in 2020, aligning with the promotion of the highly anticipated new Ghostbusters movie that is slated for Summer 2020 in the U.S. The upcoming product line marks a return to the Ghostbusters franchise by Hasbro. From 1986 to 1991, Kenner, which is now part of Hasbro, created and marketed The Real Ghostbusters toy line, with many of the original developers from Kenner still working with Hasbro. More recently, Hasbro collaborated with Sony Pictures to create the Transformers Generations Collaborative: Ghostbusters Mash-Up Ecto-1 Ectotron which is currently available for pre-order exclusively at GameStop and HasbroPulse.com. Additionally, a Transformers / Ghostbusters crossover comic series is now available from IDW. These collaborations honor both brands’ 35th anniversaries this year. “Ghostbusters is an iconic and beloved franchise and we are excited and honored to return to the brand as the global master toy licensee and bring new product to the next generation of fans,” said Tom Warner, Senior Vice President, Hasbro. “Drawing on Hasbro’s proprietary insights and culture of innovation, we are working closely with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to create a dynamic new toy line that we can’t wait to share with fans around the world.” “As we build up to release our new Ghostbusters film next year, it was a natural choice to work with Hasbro to develop an all-new line of toys that not only celebrates the new film but also brings us back to the roots of the original film and toy line,” said Jamie Stevens, Executive Vice President, Sony Pictures Consumer Products. “Hasbro has a proven track record of working with well-known IP to make a variety of high-quality toys and figures that appeal to people of all ages and we are excited to leverage this expertise to bring new product experiences to Ghostbusters fans around the world.”
  11. NECA has fully revealed their second 2019 New York Comic Con exclusive DC Comics Vs Dark Horse Comics set which will be Green Lantern based. We already knew the Dark Horse side of this set would include a Yautja of the Sinestro Corps Predator figure that is based on on an obscure appearance back during Green Lantern Vol 4 #24 and the Sinestro Corps War storyline. For the DC side we now know the set will include a Green Lantern Corps member Hal Jordan. As a bonus there will also be a alternate Jon Stewart headsculpt you can use in place of the Jordan one. The downside for this is you would have to buy two of the sets to have both characters on your shelf at the same time. The Green Lantern figure will also include a power battery, attachable burst effects and interchangeable hand. The Predator features two heads, detachable backpack, interchangeable hands, sword, spear and more! The set will come in a window box packaging with embossed opening flap. NECA will have more info at the end of the week on how to obtain this set along with the Batman and “Joker” Alien 2-Pack which they showed official images for the other
  12. Tamashii Nations has released a new image of their upcoming Dragon Ball Z S.H. Figuarts Tao Pai Pai figure which will be released in February 2020. The figure is said to include 3 facial expression option parts and a pillar that allows various posing experiences.
  13. Hasbro to Phase Out Plastic from New Toy and Game Packaging. While Marvel and Star Wars aren't specifically mentioned in the press release, I have to assume these changes will be implemented for all Hasbro products which of course includes Black Series and other Star Wars based lines. See the press release put out by Hasbro yesterday below in regards to this: Press Release: Beginning in 2020, Hasbro will begin phasing out plastic from new toy and game packaging across its portfolio of iconic brands like NERF, MY LITTLE PONY, MONOPOLY, MAGIC: THE GATHERING and POWER RANGERS PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 20, 2019-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) announced today that, beginning in 2020, it plans to begin phasing out plastic from new product packaging, including plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets and blister packs. The company’s ambition is to eliminate virtually all plastic in packaging for new products by the end of 2022. “Removing plastic from our packaging is the latest advancement in our more than decade-long journey to create a more sustainable future for our business and our world,” said Brian Goldner, Chairman and CEO, Hasbro. “We have an experienced, cross-functional team in place to manage the complexity of this undertaking and will look to actively engage employees, customers, and partners as we continue to innovate and drive progress as a leader in sustainability.” Hasbro has a long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability, from eliminating wire ties in 2010 and adding How2Recycle® labeling in 2016, to the use of plant-based bioPET in 2018, and most recently, launching an industry-leading toy recycling program with TerraCycle®.

  15. I think that basically translate that you will see more than just He-Man and Skeletor everytime you go into a store which is what happened with the 200x line.
  16. Pixel-Dan caught up with Mattel's Britt Shotts at this past weekends Power-Con convention to talk about whats coming for Masters of the Universe: Origins. Britt previously worked on the Jurassic World brand for Mattel but recently switched over to Masters. The big take away's from the interview are that toys for the new movie will soon be going into production, and what we are seeing with Origins now is just the beginning. It's a new Renaissance for Masters of the Universe. Also Trap Jaw and the three 5.5" Origins figures they teased at their panel which included Orko, Scareglow and Man-E-Faces could either be released in series 2 or 3 but they aren't saying which. Brit also promises lots of character variety in this line and lots of newness at retail as they plan to do something like 4 new refreshes or mixes of the assortments each year they do this line. The origins will be available in Fall 2020 at mass retail.
  17. I think it is a combination of age and that he has lost a lot of weight in a fairly short amount of time. He changed his life-style habits I believe after having a stroke which was likely due to him being so heavy at the time.
  18. Im gonna review KGBeast, Katana and Killer Croc all in one video sometime this week.
  19. I think the Castlevania people effect the animation style but not the story itself and as I've said before Im willing to deal with less than stellar animation if the story is good. I'm glad they are picking up from the Filmation series and not starting over again but I hope the tone of the new stories are more in keeping with the 200x series than the original series if that makes sense.
  20. Well that's because Playmates doesn't make their product for the collector. They are all about the kids and parents that buy them and they are basically locked into having to focus mostly on stuff for the current show which I don't think has been that popular. The last show was good and collectors liked it for the most part but not this one. Playmates tried dipping their toes into the collector market with those 6" figures they did a couple years ago but sales just didn't seem to be there to warrant them doing more. I do have to wonder with DC Collectibles, NECA and now Super7 all doing collector oriented stuff at the same time, how well any of them will really do.
  21. Mattel wasn't the only company to make a number of exciting announcements at this past weekend's Power-Con convention. Super7 debuted a number of new 7" scale Ultimates action figure lines which included ThunderCats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the original Conan The Barbarian move. Besides that they had on hand some new Masters of the Universe ReAction figures. Be sure to check out new detailed images from Shakil Assi of everything shown by Super7 at the event below in our GALLERY. ThunderCats Ultimates For ThunderCats we had already seen the first wave which was announced earlier in the week. This wave includes Lion-O, Panthro, Jakalman and Mummy Mumm-Ra, all of which had been previously released under Mattel. The figures now include additional accessories and will cost $45 each. No other specific figures were announced, but Super7 did put out the release schedule for the first five waves, each containing 4 figures. Here is how the dates break down. ThunderCats release schedule: Wave 1 - Now Wave 2 - January 2020 Wave 3 - April 2020 Wave 4 - July 2020 Wave 5 - October 2020 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures had been teased by Super7 back in February during Toy Fair, I think it surprised us all when they debuted the first wave of figures here at Power-Con. The first wave features figures of Raphael, Baxter Stockman Foot Soldier and Splinter. Like with the ThunderCats figures these will be packed with a lot of accessories. The designs of the figures are based on the original toyline from Playmates and likely will cost $45 each. Besides showing the first wave Super7 also announced the released schedule for the first 5 waves. TMNT release schedule: Wave 1 - October 2019 Wave 2 - March 2020 Wave 3 - June 2020 Wave 4 - September 2020 Wave 5 - December 2020 Conan The Barbarian Ultimates Another surprise Super7 had for us this weekend was the announcement that they would be doing figures based on the original Arnold Schwarzenegger Conan the Barbarian movie. They showed off 3 of the 4 figures in the first wave which include Conan, Rexor and Thorgrim. While not officially announced, it was strongly hinted that the 4th figure in the wave would be Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones). All these lines are being sculpted by The Four Horsemen who previously did work for Super7 with the Masters of the Universe Classics stuff which does seem to be on at least temporary hiatus. MOTU ReAction Horde members Grizzlor, Modulok and Mantenna made their debut at Power-Con this weekend.
  22. A lot happened this past weekend at Power-Con and we wanted to bring you a recap of all the announcements made by Mattel for Masters of the Universe, She-Ra and their newly announced WWE/MOTU Mash-Up line titled Masters Of The WWE Universe. Be sure to check out new detailed images from Shakil Assi of everything shown by Mattel at the event below in our GALLERY Masters of the WWE Universe For Masters of the WWE Universe line they had on hand Terror-Claws HHH which will be included with the Castle Grayskull wrestling ring along with He-Man John Cena. The ring features things like wood-like stairs that you can store your figures weapons in. Also shown were the figures in the first wave which include New Day Man-E-Faces that has the faces of all 3 members of the New Day team. Finn Balor Beastman, Ultimate Warrior, HHH Skull King and Clawful Sting. For the second wave they debuted at Power-Con Macho Man-At-Arms with multiple battle-armor chest pieces, Rey Mysterio Stratos and Roman Reigns Fisto with removable gauntlet. The figures will come with collector booklets telling the story of these characters and the roles they play on planet WWEternia. The figures are based on the classic MOTU buck but have added articulation so they can, well actually wrestle. The figures are also compatible with Mattel's new Masters of the Universe: Origins line and parts from all these figures will be interchangeable with one another. She-Ra And The Princess Of Power For fans of the new Netflix She-Ra animated series Mattel showed off new doll-like action figures based on the show including Adora, She-Ra, Swift-Wind, Bow, Glimmer and Catra. Masters Of The Universe: Origins Masters of the Universe is returning to mass-retail in 2020 with a new line of products titled "Origins" which will include the likes of 5.5" action figures, vehicles and mini-figures. The first wave of 5.5" action figures will include He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Teela, Skeletor, Beastman and Evil-Lyn. Also shown for the first time was Trap Jaw which is likely slated for wave 2. These figures feature new bucks that are reminiscent of the original 80's toy line but feature added articulation. The figures also have removable limbs that are interchangeable with one-another as well as those from the Masters of the WWE Universe line. The figures feature character specific weapon accessories and will be packaged in classic looking cardbacks which will also include new mini-comics. To go along with the figures it was announced a new Battle Cat was being released for this line with a removable battle helmet and a Sky Sled that will include a Prince Adam figure. The Sky Sled and Prince Adam weren't on display at the con but they did show a slide of it at their panel. These will also come in classic looking packaging. We will also be seeing new Mini-Figure 2-packs which will include special chase variant figures. The chase figures shown at Power-Con include comic-based Trap Jaw, Slime-Pit He-Man, Gold-Armor Skeletor and Serpent Claw Man-At-Arms. All these mini-figures will come as blind-packs. The 5.5." figures will retail for $14.99 each, Battle Cat will retail for $24.99, Sky Sled with Prince Adam will retail for $29.99 and the Mini-figure 2-packs will cost $4.99 each. Masters Of The Universe: Revelation Anime Netflix Series Finally yesterday actor/director Kevin Smith announced at PowerCon that he was heading up a new Masters of the Universe animated series coming to Netflix which will pick up were the original cartoon left off. The new series is called Masters of the Universe: Revelation with the animation being handled by the company known as Powerhouse who also worked on the current Castlevania Netflix series. Here is a synopsis of the new series: A radical return to Eternia, Revelation is a direct sequel series to the classic era of Masters of the Universe. Featuring fan favorites He-Man, Orko, Cringer and Man-At-Arms, the story pits our heroic warriors and guardians of Castle Grayskull against Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, Beastman and the vile legions of Snake Mountain! But after a ferocious final battle forever fractures Eternia, it's up to Teela to solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to prevent the end of the Universe! Her journey will uncover the secrets of Grayskull at last. This is the epic He-Man and the Masters of the Universe saga fans have waited 35 yeas to see! . A release date for the show has yet to be announced but likely will air sometime in 2020.
  23. Besides working on figures for both Mattel and Super7, The Four Horsemen were on hand at this past weekends Power-Con showing some of their own figures with Mythic Legions. Check out the images via Shakil Assi below of their booth.
  24. Yesterday the big announcement came out of PowerCon that actor/director Kevin Smith would be heading up a brand new Masters of the Universe anime series called Revelation. Now that the news is out Pixel-Dan was able to catch up and ask Kevin some questions about the show. Check out his interview below. Some takeaways from the interview is that right now there has been no release date for the series announced which will air on Netflix. Kevin even joked about how long an animated series would take to get made but we will assume this is slated to air sometime in 2020. That seems to be the push anyway. The animation style is likely going to be similar to that of the current Castlevania anime series which airs on Netflix now. Powerhouse which is the company behind Castlevania are now hard at work on Masters. Jason Mewes is not He-Man and while Kevin is the showrunner, he indicates the only mark he plans to leave on it is good storytelling and character development. In other words don't expect him to turn Eternia into Clerks. The show is expected to pickup were the official Filmation series left off also incorporating things like the original mini-comic stories and such. Kevin seemed to hint that even though things are picking up were the original show left off, being on Netflix could allow them to add elements that would make it appealing to kids an adults alike. Let us know what you think in the COMMENTS SECTION, do you think Kevin Smith up to the task of bringing fans the Masters of the Universe they've been waiting 35 years for?
