New B&W Universal Monsters from DST

When you first shivered at the sight of the Mummy, cowered in fear from the Wolfman and felt the cold, clammy hands of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, were the monsters in bright, vibrant colors? No, of course not — they were in black and white, and they still are to this day! That’s why Diamond Select Toys has made this box set of black and white Universal Monsters action figures, which we’re calling the Legacy Series. It includes the Mummy, the Creature, and the Wolfman just as they were intended to be, and Imhotep willing, always will be. No fan of the original monster movies is going to want to be without this set! Available at Redford Films Now!!

Ask Matty Q&A for October 1st

Any news on upcoming DC Action League figures?  We have some exciting Action League minis reveals coming at NYCC…stayed tuned! 

Any updates on Wind Raider in October, is it still on schedule? It is now shipping in December and the price has increased to $45.00 due to rising costs of material.  

Can we expect to see more Disney Car's Products on Mattycollector like the upcoming talking McQueen?
    Eventually yes, but nothing to announce right now.     

Will the success of the classic Voltron sales drive more toys?
  Yes! We hope to be able to build out the entire universe of Voltron, if the fans show a high demand for it.    

 Will we see any other 80's Voltron style toys outside the subscription this year?      We cannot say exactly what else you will see from Voltron this year, but we do hope to continue to offer Voltron Classic product, as long as there is a high enough demand for it.
