Mattel Creations’ Crystal Skeletor

skeletor_06
I got a great surprise on my stoop this morning. The Mattel Creations‘ Skeletor I ordered on a whim back in October showed up! I have gotten into the Masters of the Universe Origins line and when I saw a link for the clear Skeletor pop up, I thought to myself, this isn’t my top dream figure, but if I don’t preorder it now, I’ll be disappointed when it comes out and everyone else has it and it’s too pricey to get. So I did, and now I have it, and I’m thrilled! Click below for more pics.

MOTU Origins: He-Man & Skeletor

origins_11
By sheer luck, I HAVE THE POWER! It has taken a lot of patience and a lot of stops in random Wal*Marts, but I finally got my hands on a Masters of the Universe Origins He-Man and Skeletor. After watching seemingly hundreds of fellow collectors defy the odds and the scalpers and post pics of their own hauls, I finally had my day. I took a ton of photos, click below for more!

I have 300 pictures to show you from my two Mattel visits. The first event was just for collectables, featuring Suicide Squad and Batman vs Superman, as well as Halo and of course Masters of the Universe and Thundercats. Then the next day I visited the blogger breakfast where we got to see the items for smaller children, including the action figure 3D printer Thingmaker, Hot Wheels, Thomas, Monster High, and more.

Check back soon for my guided tour, but for the time being, check out my pics below.

Essential Seven Toy Fair 2011 Disappointments

Toy Fair 2011 is now over. I always enjoy attending. I get to fly to New York, drink with friends, and see all of the toys coming out this year. I now know what to spend my money on. However, I also know what I don’t want to spend my money on. If there is one thing the collective fan media is good at, it’s bitching and moaning. I decided I needed to bitch a little and tell you the Essential Seven Toy Fair 2011 Disappointments:
