Since last time we checked in with Mattel, we all received the total bummer news that the Young Justice toy line has been cancelled… In memory of that great toy line that left us all too soon, we dedicated more than a few questions this month to some YJ details, including Mattel’s thoughts on why the line couldn’t continue and the fate of the final 6″ waves shown at Toy Fair 2012.
On a more positive note, we also get a few hints on Matty’s plans for WWE deco changes, their new plans to reveal Masters of the Universe between Conventions and more– keep reading for all the answers!

Last Friday Mattel revealed the first batch of exclusives they have planned for this year’s San Diego Comic Con, and the showing definitely doesn’t seem to pack the same punch as years past. Check out Mattel’s SDCC 2012 offers, and what we think of them…

With The Avengers already in stores, Hasbro is gearing up to release their next Summer movie toy lines in just a few weeks. In preparation for the May 28th release dates, Pre-Order solicits for GI Joe Retaliation and The Amazing Spider-Man have gone live at e-tailers across the web. And much like The Avengers line, both new series are pretty broad in scope and (compared to the past) kind of light on action figures.

The new season of Mad Men continues to charge forward, packing some dense and heavy character studies into what has been a flat-out brilliantly written and beautifully realized season. From a dabble into horror two weeks back to last week’s heartbreaking spotlight on Pete and Lane, I keep expecting the bottom to fall out on just how good this show is, but I’m starting to this that shoe is nowhere near falling– in fact this week’s “Far Away Places” may have been the most compelling and entertaining episode of the season.

For me, one of the most exciting reveals at Toy Fair was NECA’s announcement that they would be releasing a toy line for Prometheus. Ridley Scott’s upcoming movie looks incredibly ambitious and insanely cool, and (I hope) may end up being the best film of the Summer. While many details about the movie are still shrouded in mystery, from what we’ve seen so far it looks like there will be no shortage of visually dynamic stuff just begging to be captured in plastic. I though it would be fun to go place some guesses on what the upcoming Prometheus toy line could look like…

One of the recent additions to Kotobukiya’s DC Bishoujo Collection was Supergirl, who strikes a fun and flirty pose and makes an excellent addition to the “Pretty Girl” series. Master artist Shunya Yamashita does justice to the last daughter of Krypton, and the resulting statue is a must-have for any fans of the DC comics heroine or Bishoujo artwork.
