Not too much to report from the MOTUC trenches since we have less than a week until Mattypolooza, but at least something has come out. USA Today, the newspaper nobody buys but you will gladly read when they leave it at your hotel door in the morning, has run an article on He-Man and the classics line.
Most of the information is stuff we have already heard, however they did reveal the cover for the third mini-comic that will debut with Dragon Blaster Skeletor. The cover tries to put as many characters in it as possible, most notable is Terror Claws Skeletor and Flying Fists He-Man. I don’t know if that is supposed to be a hint of the next variants, but you can take it that way if you like.
The article is here if you want to read it. And the cover is below.
Some other things of note since I probably didn’t get to them before. Here is the sale lineup for 7/16/12, aka Power Monday (not really “Power Monday”).
