MOTU Classics Rattlor with his armor?
Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 by Pixel Dan
UPDATE: Confirmation that is was indeed a mistake. From ToyGuru:
“We used the wrong image. It happens. I’ve already asked the team to correct it. Should be removed by the AM. Rattlor does not come with the armor. We couldn’t afford it as noted when we revealed him at SDCC. He has a ton of deco. Every scale was a deco hit!”
ORIGINAL: Uh oh! Looks like MattyCollector.com goofed!
In the listing for the product going on sale October 15th, 2012, Masters of the Universe Classics Rattlor is shown wearing his general armor!
This definitely appears to be a goof, since we already know that Rattlor does not include this armor. Scott “Toyguru” Neitlich did tell us at San Diego Comic Con that the armor had been sculpted, but it was cut from the figure because of cost. He also said they were hoping to release it in a future weapons pak.
But now this picture has shown up on Matty. The problem is that this is sure to confuse some folks, and will certainly bum a lot of folks out seeing something they won’t be getting.
But at least we get to see what the armor looks like! Fingers crossed it’ll show up somewhere down the road.
Mattel has yet to comment on the photo. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated!
Well at least we know not to expect it with the general, uh Rattlor.
Wow, will they ever stop messing up?
eh, its a simple mistake. The sky certainly isn't falling.
Looks like I will be getting weapon pak #4
I think they did this on purpose as a marketing tactic. It is a way to encourage people to buy weapons pack #4.
I second this statement.
This was my first thought when I saw the picture.
They should have kept the armor and ditched the lame repetitive staff.
Maybe his armor is the gift for the Frosta mess-up?
I was thinking something similar. Maybe it would come with a figure that has little or no accessories. Hopefully not a New Adventures figure because I know so little about that I haven't opened Slush Head.
That was my guess too
Not a big deal. This is an all out awesome figure with or without the 200x armor.
meh, I like him better without the armor.
Nog a big deal by itself, but when you add up all the “small goofs” you have a solid case for being inept
Personally, I just think it's cool we get to see the armor now. Ever since Scott said it was made, folks wanted to know what it would look like. So now we know! I do understand how this could get some folks a little bummed out. But at least we know there is a strong possibility of getting it down the road. I think so far Mattel has been pretty good about getting us the extra accessories that had to be cut due to cost. 🙂
i'm wandering if this is the extra that they were talking about that subscribers would get for the frosta arms screw up
Nope. Just a simple mistake per Scott. I just updated the post above with the details.
the armour sucks anyway – i'm glad we don't get it! …
booooooo 200x!!!! … 😉 …
Really completes the guy in my opinion
[…] the Four Horsemen, but it didn’t cost out since Rattlor was already so expensive. Mattel did accidentally post a picture of Rattlor with the armor on Mattycollector, though. I’m sure they’ll find a way to […]
