Masters of the Universe is coming back to Mattel in a big way. At San Diego Comic-Con 2019 they unveiled their new MOTU Origins 5.5″ Figures, with more debuting later this week. They also had a large amount of MOTU Mega Construx on display. See those photos after the jump.
Mattel has announced their new Masters of the Universe Origins action figure line (via io9) for San Diego Comic-Con 2019. The 5.5″ tall figures will be based on the classic MOTU toy line, but will come packed with updated articulations. The line originally was revealed with a SDCC 2019 Exclusive 2-Pack. The first two figures in the new line will, of course, be He-Man and Skeletor. They will be packed on vintage style card backs, and won’t hit shelves until Fall 2020. Check out a few images after the jump.
Toyark sponsors Big Bad Toy Store and Entertainment Earth have opened up pre-orders for the upcoming Masters of the Universe – Mer-Man 1/6 Scale Figure coming from Mondo. The figure includes a modern and a vintage style head sculpt, interchangeable hands, interchangeable feet, a trident, a blaster, and more. They have the price listed as $169.99, with a release set for the fourth quarter of the year. Pre-order at BBTS | Entertainment Earth.
Mer-Man, from The Masters of the Universe, is the next figure to join the 1/6 scale figure line by Mondo. Featuring over 30 points of articulation, fish-eyes, sea-powered armor, and a lot of accessories, this is the most powerfully fishy figure you will ever find, from here to Eternia’s oceans!
- Approximately 12 inches (30.48cm)
- Made of plastic
- Over 30 points of articulation
- Features a vintage head sculpt
- Wide selection of accessories
- Mer-Man figure
- Alternate head
- 5 Pairs of hands

By the power of Grayskull – New He-Man in the house! Mattel surprised everyone last month with the reveal that they were doing new 5 inch Masters of the Universe figures inspired by the original molds, but with more articulation. Titled Masters of the Universe Origins, He-Man and Prince Adam come in a single boxed two pack with a comic to match. They are in similar porportions to the original MOTU figures, with updated heads and articulation. They have elbows and knees now, shoulder range, a boot cut and rocker ankles. You can see the full range they offer and how it all moves in the pics after the break. He-Man also gets a boot knife and slot to stick it in.
These are not pure for vintage collectors or Classics collectors, it’s a new thing with a mix of both. These were developed in house at Mattel, and supposedly the Four Horsemen are now involved and will tweak what’s been done as the line continues. Where and how it will continue, or when, is unknown at the moment.
Bottom line, I was more impressed with the set than I was expecting. It was a blast playing around with a really old school feeling fig, but being able to pose it in ways we never could. Having his arms straight out and being able to stand straight up just gave me a chuckle after 30+ years of not being an option. If I was offering constructive feedback – a sharper vintage head would be nice, along with tighter knees. The knees were a tad loose, while the boot cuts were a tad tight, so getting exact poses were fiddly. Nothing some fine tuning can’t fix.
These guys will be available during SDCC at the Mattel booth in limited quantities, retailing for 40 bucks. Not a bad price for 2 new figs, being a con exclusive, and a serious box setup. Read on to check out over 95 HD images of the set after the break courtesy of Mattel!
