After a bit of a hiccup, Formo Toys is ready to share their upcoming Masters of the Universe style toy line. Originally titled Lords of Power, and meant to create figures based on Mark Taylor’s original MOTU designs, the series has been rebranded. Now known as Legends of Dragonore, the upcoming figures are now inspired by the aesthetic of Masters of the Universe without using designs that could potentially cause IP infringement issues. Here’s a bit of info on the line:
This is a new and exciting line of 5.5” action figures designed to look like those found in the toy isles and toy chests of the 1980s. When action figures were simpler… yet full of creativity and fun!
The figures have been conceived and designed by Emiliano Santalucia and modeled by Peer Brauner.
Each action figure stands 5.5”, has six points of articulation and it is made of ABS and PVC plastic. The figures feature multiple pop-apart joints that allow for simple mix-and-match customizing, and with the expansion of the line, will expand to a world of new possibilities, characters, and creatures. Each figure has up to ten modular joints. The joints are fully compatible with similar vintage modular figures. Most figures come with removable armor and one or more accessories.
The first wave is entitled The Beginning and will include six figures. Each of the first 6 figures in the line also comes with one or more pieces of our first Divine Armor of Power™ figure. By collecting the entire wave, customers will be able to put together this special figure not available separately. The Divine Armor of Power™ figure is completely compatible with the other figures’ joints.
Figures come packaged in retro full-color blister cards.
We’re still waiting on pre-order details. For now, you can check out the first photo of the figures together by clicking the banner image above.
