During MTV’s San Diego Comic-Con livestream, Scott Neitlich (Marketing Brand Manager at Mattel) brought a ton of Matty Collector-exclusives into the studio– that we’re giving away! Not only that, but Scott was sporting the prototype of Mattel’s latest prop-replica: Batman’s Utility Belt, based on the look of the 1966 television series!
The utility belt is a while from release, but will include four opening pouches (from the bottom, natch), and a fold-able Batarang! It’ll fit up to a 43″ waist, so if you’re a 44 or above it looks like some situps might be in order before you go on any vigilante adventures.
Now, let’s take a look at the best of the exclusives:
Rokkon and Stonedar – Masters of the Universe Classics
Like Scott, these were my favorite figures in the vintage Masters of the Universe action figure line. Sure, turning into a rock is kinda lame, but transforming is still better than not transforming!
He-Man & Skeletor – Mini-Masters
This tiny-fied He-Man and Skeletor set look really close to their appearance in “He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe” for the iPad. Trust me, I played that side-scroller wayyyy too much to not recognize the similarities.
Batusi Batman – 1966 Batman Figure Line
This exclusive is a very good representation of Adam West as he shakes his ass on the dance floor. The facts that it’s Batman-related, sculpted by the Four-Horsemen, and has a package designed by Shag are all only bonuses.
Julie Newmar Catwoman – Barbie
Julie Newmar was the perfect Catwoman and this figure brings the 60s-era criminal seductress into the world of Barbie. Ken better watch out, or that wimp will get his eyes scratched out!
New 52 Shazam – DC Universe Club Infinite Earths
The first figure representing Shazam’s look in DC Comics’ New 52, this figure (sculpted by the four Horsemen) features a removable hood and has a box that matches the stylings of the DC Club Infinite Earths subscription line.
