Join us as we take a closer look at Spirit to see if he's worthy of being a Thoroughbred-- or if he's destined for the glue factory!

"Finally, The Rock has come back to the toy aisle!"-- is what this figure from Mattel's WWE Survivor Series Heritage Collection would say if our reality was full of insanity and action figures could speak.

Okay, it seems Mattel has unleashed some BIG news for all us DC Universe Classics fans. Knowing that our beloved DCUC was being relegated to the Club Infinite Earths on Matty Collector in favor of a new line caused excitement in some and anxiety in others. What would the figures look like? Would the Four Horsemen be sculpting them? Were they going to be figures sporting the DC New 52 costumes? Would there be Collect & Connect pieces? Well, all those questions and more have been put to rest recently with Mattel's announcement of their 2012 toyline: DC Universe All-Stars!

Read on for all the info straight from Mattel, along with some speculation by us. Pure speculation, people!

Now that Nightwing is playable in Arkham City, it's cool to have the Batman Legacy figure too!

At New York City Comic Con, Batman: Arkham City was everywhere! While DC Direct showed off a ton of figures, and also had stations set up for fans to play the video game from Rocksteady, Mattel brought their own figures of the Dark Knight to the show including a few from Arkham City as well. At first it seemed odd that two companies would be producing so many toys based on a video game. Then, we punched ourselves in the face for being so cynical. Two toylines mean a ton of badass Batman will be on our shelves-- and what's so wrong with that?! Mattel bolstered their Arkham ranks with some other appearances of Batman from both the recent films and the early days of DC Comics.

At New York Comic Con, Mattel made their presence known by using their biggest fan-based action figure line: Masters of the Universe Classics! It's well documented that we LOVE these toys, so naturally we were sitting front and center (well, more to the right and with some of our fellow toy bloggers) for any and all announcements regarding He-Man and his cohorts. However, with Mattel's recent announcements at this year's Power-Con, there wasn't a ton of newness for readers of Geek, but we still scored info on 2 new figures and some of Mattel's SDCC plans for next year.
