From Power-Con 2012, Mattel had some VERY exciting announcements at the Mattypalooza panel! Not only were three new Masters of the Universe Classics figures revealed, but ToyGuru drops a major bomb about the Castle Grayskull playset coming in 2014!

Here’s a quick update video I put together running down a list of some of the things I’ll be doing this weekend at the 2nd annual Power-Con/ThunderCon! For a full schedule of events, be sure to visit http://www.ThePower-Con.com! Hope to see you guys there!
Joe Amaro has sent out an update concerning the upcoming Manta Raider, which was first set to be available at Power-Con this weekend.
From Joe: The Manta Raiders casts have not arrived, there is still hope, but we may not have them in time for Power Con. Unfortunately, this means I may not have time to do a pre-sell. I am sorry.
The good news is that the Manta Raider is still happening and Rudy has agreed to sign all the back cards so if we don’t make it to Power Con and we have to do online ordering all the Manta Raiders will come signed by Rudy Obrero.
Along with this announcement, Joe has given us the first look at the awesome blister card packaging for the Manta Raider, featuring the artwork of Rudy Obrero! Looking sweet!
We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on the status of the Manta Raider sale!
-On a very related note, Bandai Japan has revealed the next figure in their Mega Man D-Arts line! Like the figma Nintendo figures, I’ve been very happy with the D-Arts figures based on the Mega Man X franchise. I was thrilled to see that their next will be straight from the classic Mega Man games: Mega Man with Rush and Metall! Yes! Here’s hoping for many more of these figures based on the classic NES games! I want to fill my shelves with Robot Masters! Make it happen, Bandai Japan!
-In case you missed my post yesterday about the new stuff coming from Spy Monkey Creations, you really need to head over to http://www.weaponeersofmonkaa.com and scope out all of their mouth-watering teasers! While we still don’t know exactly what they are up to, I know I for one am incredibly excited and can’t wait for the reveal at Power-Con later this month!
-Speaking of Power-Con, are you going? I can’t believe that we are a mere three weeks away! All of the details and the schedule of events are available at http://www.ThePower-Con.com! Make sure to come up and say “Hi” if you’re attending!
Lots of exciting toy news there! I’ll do my best to try to stay up to date with these Round-Ups going forward. Stay tuned, as there are plenty of new video reviews on the way as well!
