SDCC 2019: THE MATTEL BOOTH

3
1745

Mattel has surprised me this year. They actually have new DC Multiverse figures on display! The company has a pretty impressive booth this year, with a focus on Batman (since it is his 80th anniversary this year). They have also unveiled several new DC Multiverse figures like the KGBeast, Katana (which we have technically seen in prototype form) and a new Build-a-Figure Killer Croc. The Killer Croc figure looks to be the King Shark figure with a different paint app and head sculpt. Thanks to a heads up from Joe Acevedo, he points out that Killer Croc has different feet and upper body, from that of the King Shark figure. Only the waist and legs appear to be the same. So it’s NOT a repaint with a new head.

Keep in mind, that typically each day, companies bring out one to two new items for display to keep people coming back to their booths, and there is one figure with a black cloth over him that will be unveiled this weekend. So keep it here for updates as they break.

  1. Can’t tell if that’s Cassandra Cain Batgirl that I see beside the Nightwings in the third picture. If it is, I will be the happiest bat-fan on the planet.

    • It IS Cassandra Cain, though I don’t know why she and many of the others in pic 3 are included in this years toy fair. That particular figure was produced by Mattel in 2009 as part of the S3 Super-sculpt Series which was the pre-cursor to the DC Universe Classics line. The figure has long been retired. I own her and she is an excellent figure, but you will pay close $100 bucks if you purchase her today, assuming she’s in box and in good condition. I too would LOVE to see an updated version, but as far as 6″ figures go, she and most of the early Mattel stuff were great.

      • I believe those are there because they were celebrating Batman’s 80th anniversary and wanted some cool Bat-themed figures in the display…
