Disney's Muppets Vinylmation Series 2

     If you have traveled to Disney World or now even one of the Disney Stores then you may have seen some display of vinyl collectibles called Vinylmation. Basically a Mickey figure that is painted to look like something else. So far there has been everything from Disney Park related decos, Star Wars, Toy Story and much more.
     I recently got my hands on a set of Muppets series 2, not including the chase piece. These are blind packaged and sold for about $12 each, in a case of 24. These series expands on the 1st release by adding mostly non-mainline character. Check out my pictures below. This series gives us some Muppet Band members, Penguin, Scooter, the Pigs in Space Crew, Lew Zealand and Pepe.

Panthor and Sy-Klone Arrive

If you are not buying the monthly MOTU classic figures at Mattycollector where have you been? This month subscribers were treated to a colorful Sy-Klone. He features original chest deco with radar, shield and a giant red ring from the 200x series. Also Panthor was released as well. The companion to Skeletor this is a great looking piece. If you missed these look to re-sellers as they are sold out.

Ask Matty Answers - 4/15


           As many sites do, Elkkthunders Toy Room now participates in the bi-monthly Ask Matty segment that the folks at Mattel do for the fans. I actually have 2 sets of questions for this round. Take a look below for some Q&A from various lines by Mattel and Mattycollector.com.
          Be sure to submit questions via the comment feature below the post or use the send an email option on the right side. Thanks Matty!!

1. Do you plan on making a DCUC - green, red, yellow, 90's Tim Drake Robin? The one from last years Wal-Mart 2-pack was filled with inaccuracies (wrong chest, gloves, cape, boots)
It is always possible. Robin is a very popular character and simple redecos are always something we look into.

2. DCUC figures of Cluemaster, Spoiler and KG Beast - any chance on seeing them this year?
Sorry, we can’t comment on unannounced figures.

3. It seems that Pixar Cars are seeing a bigger showing on Mattycollector. We will see more exclusive cars similar to the April Barry Diesel?
Right now that is the only CARS item planned. But you never know what the future will bring.

4. How long do you plan/anticipate  the MOTU stands will continue to stay in stock?
It is hard to say. For a figure we like to see a quick sell out to manage inventory (which affects shipping costs and we try to keep that as low as possible). For stands, since they are smaller and something people always need, we do like them to stay on for a bit longer.

5. If the MOTU weapons rack is a success will we see similar blister carded sets in the future?
Possibly,it depends on a lot of logistics. We hope to have the packs continue but we will have to see!

1- It was reported that the Back to the Future license only covers Doc, Marty and the Delorean, any chance the license will be expanded to cover other characters?
 Not at this time.

2- When will we hear details on SDCC offerings?
We will be announcing our SDCC “for sale” items during the last week of April.  Stay tuned to Facebook/MattyCollector for more info.  

3- The GB PKE Meter was great. Any idea when we will hear about more props?
  S…D…C…C.

4- If and when a Kobra Kahn gets made, can he have a detachable hood as seen in the 200x series or is that not possible?
It is possible, but more likely if we did this feature it would be on a second head. But nothing planned right now.

5- If the MOTUC weapon rack is a success, is it possible that similar blister carded packs would be made?
It is always possible, but again, nothing is planned right now.
