Mattel at SDCC 2009, He-Man, Battle Cat and a rant…

Dec 2008 012

Let me start off by saying that I do really enjoy the newest iteration of the He-Man toy line.  Sadly, I do not own a single figure from the series.

I thought attending San Diego Comic-Con 2009 would be my first shot at a figure.  He-Ro was supposed to be readily available to attendees.  I walked up to the Mattel booth on Thursday morning and saw that He-Man and Beast Man were both also available (Skeletor was sold out).

Unfortunately, the Mattel booth was all but closed to anyone who did not attend pre-view night (Wed from 6pm-9pm) and got a ticket during those short hours.   Making the problem worse was the 6 per item limit.  I would see people leaving the booth with so many bags they could not carry them.  Most dropped the bags nearby and used their baby stroller to cart the items away.  Many people brought children so they could amass more items than if they were alone.   Mattel staff had no idea WTF was going on, no one with a red Mattel shirt could answer anyone’s questions about the booth, the queue or tickets.

Hasbro ran things properly (as best as possible for an in-demand company, but not as good as Hallmark did).  Tickets with time slots were handed out in a low traffic area away from the booth.  Low minimums (3-4 per item) were set.  Items were available for purchase.  Waiting in line was reasonable (about an hour).  Booth was well staffed, fast and courteous.

Shame on Mattel for running this so poorly.  I’m sure you made loads of money from the tons you sold to the few who got a chance.  I’ll stick to classic 80′s He-Man.

SDCC 2009 Coverage: Lining Up, Mattel, and Hasbro

Lines

this is a view of the convention center from the hotel room. i zoomed in to show the massive line for getting your entry badge. entrance C was where you actually went into the building to access the badge pickup area. however, the line started by entrance A. not too bad right, from the looks of the image above? it was bad. what ya can’t see here was that the line wrapped around the back of the building, then around the marina! got a nice tour of that and the bay. we were in that line for about two hours. if you don’t like crowds or standing in line, then the San Diego Comic Con is not for you. it’s the biggest convention of its kind, and only happens once a year. so folks from all over converge for the the five day event.

you are constantly wading thru the crowds and standing in this line or that line. lining up for something was the recurring theme the last two days. lining up to get my badge, lining up to get into the exhibit hall, lining up to leave, lining up to cross the street, lining up to buy things, etc. some places forced you to line up for a ticket that’s needed for lining up to by things. and i didn’t line up for everything. there were games to be played, trailers to watch, panels to attend, etc. it’s pretty hard to see/do all the things you would want to if you’re not there for multiple days. so much time was spent standing in line.

people walk past one another as the lines snake back and forth

Masters of the Universe toys by Mattel

what kinds of things do people line up for? free stuff, opportunities to try new games, buying comic books, etc. and the toys, of course. here are three Masters of the Universe action figures by Mattel, including He-Man, Skeletor, and Beast Man.

Wonder Twins by Mattel

also by Mattel are are teenage alien superheroes,  Zan and Jayna, the Wonder Twins from the DC Universe. this boxed set will be sold in stores, but the SDCC exclusive set comes with their companion, a space monkey named Gleek.

25th Anniversary Soundwave

Hasbro also made their presence known, with exclusives such as this 25th Anniversary Soundwave boxed set. the Transformers Generation 1 Decepticon comes with four of the cassette tape companions, Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw, Ratbat, and Ravage. much to my chagrin, they included the two birds, Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw (3 flyers if you count Ratbat), but left out Rumble and Frenzy. either one of those would have been nice. still, Soundwave is a fan favorite, and certainly one of mine as well.

Cap Am

this black and white Captain America exclusive is a pretty awesome looking figure. and it comes in a cool sketch cover box.

Wolverine Mighty Mugg

another Hasbro exclusive was this Wolverine Mighty Mugg. it’s based on the Wolverine/Logan from the movies. and the Mugg features retractable claws. “SNIKT!”

Optimus Prime Mighty Mugg

this Optimus Prime Mighty Mugg features a metallic paint job. it’s bad@$$, so “roll out” and pick this one up!
