Mattel just announced on their Facebook page they would not be able to reveal any new MOTUC figures at the event tonight as previously announced. It was rumored the new figure they had planned to reveal was going to be their 2010 SDCC exclusive figure.
No real explanation was given as to why they could not do the reveal tonight, but they did say they would let us know once they have the okay to show it.
For those attending the event tonight, they will still have other already revealed MOTUC figures on display. They should have everything that has been announced so far up to the Moss Man figure.
Just a reminder, if you are going to be in the LA area tonight or this weekend, be sure to check out the Masters of the Universe Art Show
. The show not only will features 100 of the top emerging contemporary artists and lots of cool MOTU artwork, but Mattel has also said they will be showing off their new Masters of the Universe Classics line tonight, including a new figure.
If you are going to be attending the show and take pictures, we would love to see them and likely so would many of our readers. Please feel free to send in any images from the show or news you have from it at News@Enewsi.com
