The coffin in Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics line and possibly ThunderCats as well seems one step closer, as neither brand appears to have a significant presence at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Mattel has released their panel schedule for the event and both the traditional Masters of the Universe Classics and Mattypalooza panels are missing from the line-up. These panels in the past traditionally showed off the upcoming product for the lines for the coming year. Rumors in recent months have been swirling that Mattel plans to cancel both ThunderCats, which only just got started and Masters of the Universe Classics. In fact the entire project has been rumored to be shutting down soon. Here is a list of panels Mattel has planned for San Diego.
