Mmm...not a bad one from Mattel. Guess they are trying into entering the 1/6 market. If they are into the high volume production thingy with this (don't think i ever heard of limited production from Mattel), don't think they would ever beat Hot Toys.

Mattel could never beat Hot Toys since one is mass market and one is collectible focused but the body type Mattel is producing offers a good alternative for muscle body type. Just got to figure out how to switch heads. Mattel had already released a 12-inch Terrance Stamp General Zod earlier.

So you've not seen the Masters of the Universe Classics line, eh?

If Mattel intends on making more "limited" figures, then they'd best get their act together and dump Digital River for their online sales. It's damn near impossible to get half of their online exclusives without buying that ridiculous subscription!
