SDCC Mezco Mumm-Ra Exclusive

This Summer Exclusive features a glow-in-the-dark, blue-skin Mumm-Ra and comes packed with his decayed form version, created from an entirely new sculpt, showing him in his decrepit natural state.

Normally old and decrepit, he transforms himself into the powerful Mumm-Ra the Ever Living by reciting the incantation “Ancient spirits of evil, transform this decayed form to Mumm-Ra, the Ever-Living!” Based on the the original animated series, this mega-scale figure is 14″ of evil ancient fury!

Mezco’s Mumm-Ra is superbly detailed, perfectly capturing not only the iconic look of Mumm-Ra the Ever Living as he appeared in the classic television series, but the essence of his villainy as he spreads his arms wide and swears to destroy Lion-O.

Mumm-Ra features 8 points of articulation as well as a real cloth cape and bandages. Both come packaged together in an oversized collector friendly box. This is a non-numbered limited edition item. Edition size TBD.

I am waiting to here about more details- keep you posted!!

Ask Matty Q&A for 6/15

Is there a planned month where the GB Glow Slimer bonus will ship?
Ideally early fall.  

Any more Batman store exclusives coming, like the TRU Bane 2 pack or Targets 4" 4-pack?
There are a fair amount of exclusives. Each of the top retailers has a few. Have you found the black and cammo tumblers at WMT?  

Will there be new pieces held back to show at Power-Con this year?
We will have items to reveal at Power Con, yes

Is the new CS team also working on making invoices correct as well as getting the online subscription page more reliable? Is there a date for this to happen?
All of this is in the works. No dates to announce right now. 

Are faster SDCC pre-sale sellouts for Monster High and Hotwheel brands represent that there is less of those product available ?
We had an allocation for pre sale and on floor sales for all items. Quotas were set over a year ago.

Ask Matty Q&A for 6/1

Do faster sellouts of stronger characters like Stinkor help the line, while NA Slush Head remained longer?
It is always good to see sell outs of figures.  

What is the status of action league, given all the recent DC line changes?
Action League is continuing for the rest of this year.

Will the SDCC Mater Exclusive be available online as well?
That is still being determined.  

Will strong sales of MOTU exclusives at SDCC do anything to help the line for 2013, or more importantly sub sales?
The sub sales for the 2012 lines are what determined the 2013 line. The sub sales of the 2013 line will determine the 2014 lines. The toy industry works 2 years ahead. 

Are all the Digital River changes in place? Will there be any details of any future changes?
No, we are constantly making changes and improvements!
