Once again, MattyCollector.com 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, MattyCollector.com. 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 MattyCollector.com 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 MattyCollector.com 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 MattyCollector.com have done everything they possibly can to prevent this situation from happening again this year.
Be sure to mark your calendars!
