Great Scott! Mattel’s Doing Back to the Future Toys!



Universal has let loose a press release where they have confirmed that Mattel is doing Back to the Future toys. I would bet anything that they’ll be following the Ghostbusters model of 6-inch and 12-inch action figures, sold at their collector site at, with maybe a few gift-packs at Toys “R” Us or some such. Despite my many, many problems with Mattel, MattyCollector and their Masters of the Universe line — it’s taking all of my willpower not to go on my same, stupid rant — this is undoubtedly A Good Thing. Assuming you’re able to pay $30 for a 6-inch figure. (Dammit! So close!) (Via Poe Ghostal)
