TMNT Night Shadow Leonardo figure comes to SDCC

You might have caught word about this interesting looking repaint of the upcoming Leonardo figure from Playmates Toys. Images of this figure randomly popped up on the official Playmates website with the words “Out of Stock,” and no explanation of exactly where or when this would be made available, if at all.

I saw many posts guessing that this would be a San Diego Comic Con exclusive. But other sites were reporting that this figure would be available in the Fall. With no official word from Playmates, I decided to go straight to the source. I e-mailed Playmates directly and asked for any information on this figure. I received an immediate response from Paula Billingsley at Playmates toys:

“This figure will be available at Comic Con only at this point, and will retail for around $20.00. Leonardo is the only one being made.”

So there you go, ladies and gents! Looks like we’ve got ourselves an awesome looking, official TMNT exclusive at this year’s SDCC! This jumps up my list to being the exclusive I am now most excited about!

UPDATE: Playmates also just confirmed with me that this figure will be sold at the Nickelodeon Booth.

MOTU Classics Mosquitor Teaser #6 -The most revealing teaser yet!

Well, I was wrong when I said that the 5th teaser would be the last one before SDCC. I just opened my mailbox to find an e-mail from ToyGuru with the phrase “You have unleashed more power than you can possibly comprehend…” And attached to that e-mail was this photo:

Ack! Spector killed Mosquitor!

I cracked up when I saw this picture. Very clever way to hide his head and chest. But this is still the most revealing picture of Mosquitor so far! We can practically see his entire body! There are small pieces of his chest poking out as well. It appears to be a completely new buck! There doesn’t seem to be any torso articulation, so there very well may actually be liquid in there!  Or, maybe it’s just an armor piece with interchangeable plates like Battle Armor He-Man. I can’t quite tell, but I can say I am more excited than ever!

SDCC can’t get here soon enough!

Just a quick update to let everyone know that OMFG! Series 2 is now available on Kickstarter! With a simple donation, Series 2 can be yours! The figures are available in flesh color and an exclusive Kickstarter black color, depending on your donation amount.

If you are unfamiliar with OMFG! (which stands for Outlandish Mini Figure Guyrs, btw), then check out my video on series 1. If you are a fan of classic mini figures such as M.U.S.C.L.E., then you’re sure to love these guys. Series 2 looks to have some incredible designs as well! Puke Knight is my favorite, for sure.

So what are you waiting for? Go make a donation and add these cool little dudes to your colelction!

MOTU Classics Mosquitor Teaser #5

ToyGuru responded to my costume teaser video I posted this morning by sending me a 5th tiny teaser image for the upcoming Masters of the Universe Mosquitor figure! He really does know how to torture me…

This image appears to be a shot of the figure from the side. This seems to confirm that our assumptions about him having the extra insect appendages are correct, as it looks like that’s what we have stuck to his back there. You can also see what may be a piece of his shoulder pad, which seems to be a light brown like the gloved hand we already saw.

I can imagine this will be the last teaser image that is sent, as the entire figure will finally be revealed on Friday July 13th and the Mattypalooza panel at SDCC! I hope anyone who is going understands that I absolutely will not be able to hold in my excitement when that reveal happens. 🙂

The Round-Up: SDCC Exclusive-palooza!

San Diego Comic Con is very quickly approaching! With that, as always, comes a slew of limited addition, pricey, must-have-because-we-can’t-resist exclusive toys! So naturally, that’s the main focus of this week’s Round-Up.






  • Speaking of Matty, the MattyPalooza panel is Friday the 13th at noon EST. Mattel will be revealing new figures for next year, including MOTUC Mosquitor! On top of that, they are introducing a brand new subscription line for next year. Any guesses on what it might be? My money is on Back to the Future…but that’s just a guess.

That wraps it up for now! i’m sure there will be more SDCC tidbits as we get closer to the show. If so, I’ll post them here! Stay tuned!
