Voltron would never make my personal list. For all of the Voltron fans I have to mention this SDCC exclusive. Personally, I would like to know exactly how big this Voltron by Mattel is. If it is 12 inches tall it is not big enough. However, with 22 points of articulation it is still impressive enough to make the list.
Finally Swamp Thing will have a DC Universe figure. Only the SDCC figure will come with the Un-Men though. The package and mask alone make this a must have. If you can’t make it to the Con you will still be able to get him later on Mattycollector.com.
There has already been a remake of the actual GI Joe Sky Striker in this year’s toy line. Though what any toy or comic book fan of GI Joe or Transformers is really going to want is the hybrid of the two. Cobra Commander not only comes in full flight gear but a tiny Megatron as well. Sadly, it does not transform. Then again, who ever thought we would get a toy from this short run crossover Marvel Comic.
Hasbro is celebrating the Revenge of the Jedi this year by releasing 14 figures in their Vintage style packaging. The catch is twelve of these figures are available on the rack; two are only part of the box set. For the first time both SalaciousCrumb and the Imperial Mouse Droid will be carded figures. Fear not, SDCC attendees, Hasbro is already working on boxes with FedEx to ship this must have item to your home. It will clearly not fit on the plane.
Hasbro celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the legend with 6 figures that were not released during the Crystal Skull days. Yes, this is that “Lost” wave we have all heard about. The figures are not the best for playing with but this is a collector’s dream. Finally there will a Satipo and a modern Toht for the collection. Happy Birthday Raider’s of the Lost Ark.
Doc Brown’s DeLorean done by Hot Wheels (we hope that’s what it means by “vehicle”) will be the must have SDCC exclusive this year. Not because this will be the first time we can get our favorite DeLorean. No, we’ve had already that. It all comes down to the box. Shown above here:
