2013 SDCC: Mattypalooza Wrap-Up
Toy Guru just wrapped up the big Mattypalooza event at SDCC and we’ve got hot-off-the-press news about coming products, the 2014 subscriptions, and a guy with the initials “SL.” Ready for the big reveals from the panel.Here are the top highlights revealed at this year’s SDCC Mattypalooza panel!
Ghostbusters™ Ecto-1/Ray Stantz/Peter Venkman Pre-Order
We’ll cut to the chase… because now your 6” Ghostbusters™ figures can, too! We’ve got a new Ghostbusters™ toy, the very first Ecto-1 vehicle in scale to 6” Ghostbusters™ figures, which means it’ll be HUGE! Designed hand-in-hand with Sony, this flagship product in the all-new Epic Creations™ line will be available for pre-order starting… now and ending November 5, 2013.
This Ecto-1 will feature amazing details, including, among others, opening doors and trunk, headlights that really flash, a beacon that lights up with blue and red lights, an authentic Ecto-1 siren and engine revving sounds! It will also feature a pull-out rack for storing the removable proton packs that come with the new 6” Peter and Ray figures (see info below), and if that’s not awesome enough, everyone who pre-orders will receive an exclusive poster of the Ecto-1 schematic! This vehicle will be produced only if the minimum pre-order goal is reached by November 5, 2013.
The new 6” Peter Venkman and Ray Stantz figures feature a newly sculpted torso so they can actually sit in the new Ecto-1, and both come with a proton stream, a removable proton pack and a “No Ghost” base. These two figures will be made only if the minimum pre-order goal for the Ecto-1 is reached by November 5, 2013. Click here to pre-order the new Ecto-1 and Ray Stantz and Peter Venkman figures.
2014 Club Eternia® Subscription
It was clear that 2014 is all about you as Club Eternia® enters its fifth year (yeah!) with a focus on the fans. We’ve got top requested core figures, “A list” animated and mini-comic characters, plus, for the first time, your choice of monthly or quarterly shipping options. And get ready for some truly evil news… it was revealed that the club-exclusive character for 2014, the figure that only subscribers receive, will be the evilest of all evils, the Unnamed One™, arriving with an all-new Horde Empire map!
The first three club figures were also announced… Two Bad® with his vintage shield and 2002 mace scheduled for January, Glimmer™, second in command to She-Ra® scheduled for February, and Hydron™, the New Adventures deep sea commander scheduled for March.
Club Eternia® subscriptions are available right now, ending on Monday, 8/19 at 11:59pm PT. This year we’re tracking the journey toward meeting the subscriber goal with a very cool meter, so we’ll all be able to see that we really do have the power… to go ahead with the 2014 Club Eternia®!

2014 Club Infinite Earths Subscription
Again, it’s all about the fans for 2014 and Club Infinite Earths is planning to release the most fan-demanded club exclusive figure ever… Doomsday! If the 2014 subscription goal is reached, subscribers will receive a first-ever 6” Doomsday figure in prison garb… but, here’s the thing… if we exceed our Level 1 goal and reach our level 2 subscriber goal, it gets even better (or worse, depending on which side you’re on). A higher number of subscribers means we’ll be able to make an even more insane “Unleashed” Doomsday figure, one that’s bigger (and badder) complete with his classic shredded uniform!
The first three club figures were also announced, starting with 90′s look Aquamanscheduled for January, Ice scheduled for February, and “Conner Kent” Superboy in his classic black shirt look scheduled for March.
Club Infinite Earths subscriptions are available right now, ending on Monday, 8/19 at 11:59pm PT, and we’ll be tracking the progress toward Level 2 and that bigger, badder Doomsday.
