Today, Mattel held their Virtual Analyst Day Meeting. During the online call, assorted presentations were made by various departments. Among the presentations the very first look at some all-new Masters of the Universe items were revealed! The presentation gives us our very first look at the upcoming Masters of the Universe cartoon, which will be CGI. This is NOT Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelations show (which is tied to the original Filmation series), but an all-new MOTU adventure comingto Netflix. The image shows the new design for both He-Man, and Battle Cat. Even more exciting for collectors is our first look at the Masters of the Universe Masterverse 7″ Scale Action Figures! The image gives us our first look at Hem-Man, Battle Cat, Skeletor, and Evil Lyn. Also revealed is a new MegaConstrux Battle Cat. Here’s what they had to say about MOTU:
“But the blockbuster news of 2021 will be the return of Masters of the Universe. Last year we set the stage with the launch of special action figures and a truly awesome Castle Grayskull targeting fans and collectors. Adding cultural relevance, we collaborated with legendary artist and pop culture icon, Madsaki for a limited-edition collection through Mattel Creations that sold out in minutes.
And this year we go all the way. 2021 will be the first time the franchise has been supported with episodic content in nearly twenty years. And now it’s getting two separate series on Netflix. The first, legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith’s contemporary reimagining, is called Masters of the Universe: Revelation and it already has incredible buzz. Here’s a peek at what’s coming… And we’ll follow this with a new animated series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe – a fun reboot for kids, bringing in a whole new generation of enthusiasts.
Masters of the Universe has been a top priority since we began leveraging our catalog IP – and we’ve done it right. We’ve built tremendous anticipation and buzz among the many loyal fans of the franchise. We have world-class talent co-creating with us.”
