  • Monster High® Scarah Screams™ Doll

For the complete details, please check out the post on the website.

Once again, will be holding their annual SDCC voucher pre-sale on May 30, starting at 12PM ET / 9AM PT.

For those who are new to the process, Mattel pre-sells a portion of their SDCC-exclusive merchandise to con attendees through their online outlet, This way you’ll be able to pre-order your sweet Ghostbusters Dana as Zuul 6″ or DC Comics Vertigo Death 8″ figures without the mad rush to the booth when the show opens. Us? We’ll be going for the Tiny Titans 5-pack or Polly Pocket DC Comics Villains set, but that’s what having kids will do to you.

Only select items will be available online, but you can get a preview of their 2012 SDCC offerings on the website (Hot Wheels and Monster High preview pictures are not yet posted but forthcoming).

And for those who couldn’t score a pass to this year’s SDCC? Some merchandise will also be sold through after the con (details to be made available at a later date), but products and quantities will be limited.

Last year there were some hiccups with the process, and some folks walked away from the show empty-handed despite completing their pre-sell order online. We suspect the folks at have done everything they possibly can to prevent this situation from happening again this year.

Be sure to mark your calendars!

What will you be buying? Let us know in the comments!

    Cool, I didn’t know about this and do NOT want to stand in that line. *shoots self*

  • Erik Rogers

    Wonderful news. Thanks for the info. Anything to avoid missing panels to stand in another line. Looks like they are going to have some great items this year as well.

  • Oh, to be sure, you’re still going to be standing in a long, long line. And I cannot stress enough that it’s possible, after standing in that line, that you still won’t get what you pre-ordered because they have not allocated enough of that item for the pick-up room and there are more “in storage” and you’re welcome to come back later, unless of course, “later” would mean Sunday, then you’re just screwed.

    I thought I was all high and mighty getting a pre-order in but it turned into a nightmare. It look many, many weeks of arguing with Mattel and contacting my credit card company before I got a refund for the items that they “didn’t have” in the fullfillment room.

    I’d rather take my chance on the show floor rather than 1/2 mile away in the the Marriott.

    @Erin I remember all the trouble you had last year. I don’t think you were the only one, either. I personally never had any trouble in two years of participating in the voucher pre-sale. I’m hoping that MattyCollector acknowledges the problems you experienced and addresses them this year. I think they will.

  • Kenneth Barone

    Marty collector is a joke and a fraud,I hope my credit card company cuts them off,wouldn’t buy from again or suggest them to my worst enemies.
