At San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Mattel debuted prototypes for two new 11″ scale She-Ra: Princess of Power Figures. These are not finalized, and aren’t guaranteed for release. Included were Catra and Netossa. If fans want to see these and more made, they can use the hashtag #WeWantMoreSheRa to let Mattel know.

In a major, surprise announcement, MattyCollector will be shutting down at the end of the year. The website will be closed. All Masters of the Universe items will be produced by Super 7! Here’s the details from Mattel:
To Our Loyal Collectors,
Thank you for being the world’s most dedicated fans and passionate supporters of MattyCollector.com over the years.
We want to let you know that we have been working on something new and different for you that measures up to your loyalty and devotion.
As of December 31, 2016, we will be shutting down the website as we transition to Super7 to manufacture and deliver the Masters of the Universe and adult collector lines. Subscriptions and orders for 2016 will remain unaffected, and the site will continue to operate through the end of the year. For the past two years, Super7 has proven to be a great partner, and we look forward to seeing them continue to grow the Masters of the Universe line. They will unveil the expanded line for 2017 at San Diego Comic-Con.
To help you complete your collections before the end of the year, we’ll be opening the Vault beginning Thursday, July 21 at 9 a.m. PT. All 2014 and 2015 items, and select 2016 items, will be available for sale at that time. They’ll remain in the shop until the end of the year or while supplies last, whichever comes first. For our U.S.-based collectors, any Vault products you buy during San Diego Comic-Con will arrive with free domestic ground shipping.*
We thank you for your dedication and support through the years.
Also, here’s a message from Super 7:
Hello Matty Collectors!
This is Brian Flynn, owner of Super7, and I just wanted to say how excited we are to expand our relationship with Mattel and Masters of the Universe this year and beyond! We’re looking forward to creating a wonderful array of exciting and unexpected Masters of the Universe products in the years to come.
As some of you may know, we’ve been working with Mattel for a few years now, creating both the retro 3.75” MOTU figures, the M.U.S.C.L.E. MOTU figures, and last year’s SDCC 2015 Skeletor’s Lair special event. Since then, we’ve announced wave 2 of the 3.75” figures, and wave 2 of the M.U.S.C.L.E. figures, which will debut at SDCC 2016.
Speaking of SDCC 2016, our biggest announcement was that while all this was going on, we’ve been working secretly on the first new Masters of the Universe animation in the classic style since 1985 – “The Curse of the Three Terrors”! In trying to be as authentic to the original series as possible, this new animation features original voice actor Alan Oppenheimer reprising his signature role as Skeletor (as well as Mer-Man and Man At Arms) on a new adventure in Eternia. Additionally, we worked with The Power and Honor Foundation to use original backgrounds from the 1984-1985 series, so this new animation is as accurate as possible. We will premiere the “The Curse of the Three Terrors” at 10pm on Wednesday July 20th, at the corner of 8th Ave. and G in downtown San Diego, directly across the street from this year’s Skeletor’s Lair pop-up shop! Afterwards, “The Curse of the Three Terrors” will be available August 1st for download on iTunes and Google Play for $1.99.
As for new and exciting products, I wonder what other secrets we might have up our sleeves for all of you…?
No mention of Thundercats. So we’re not sure what the future holds for either of those lines. Details will be shared as they become available.

A new report from Variety reveals that Hasbro is no longer the master toy licensor for Jurassic Park and Jurassic World toys. Mattel is taking over after Hasbro and Universal could not agree on new terms. Here’s a snippet from Variety:
“We are honored that NBCUniversal chose Mattel to help bring the Jurassic World brand to life, and we look forward to developing multiple new lines of innovative, engaging toys and products,” said Chris Sinclair, Mattel’s Chairman and CEO. “Spanning three decades of sustained worldwide popularity, few entertainment properties have so successfully captured the collective imagination of millions of fans around the world, and we are delighted to be a part of this truly evergreen franchise.”
Mattel’s license rights for the “Jurassic World” franchise include action figures, play-sets, vehicles, games, plush, role-play, preschool, and activity toys. It said initial products will be hitting shelves in early 2018.

You pathetic pair of pitiful pinheads! Mattel’s Club Grayskull, a cartoon themed redo of Masters of the Universe Classics has just shipped it’s 3rd figure and it’s none other than Eternia’s biggest baddie – Skeletor! The Overloard of Evil gets a new look closer to his toon version with a new head, show accurate sword and staff and simplified armor. He-Man and Trap-Jaw were really great entries in the series, but Skeletor knocks it out of the park. Let’s take a closer look after the break!
