Masters of the Universe is back on retail shelves with the new line from Mattel titled Masters of the Universe Origins (MOTUO). The line debuted last year at SDCC with a launch 2 pack featuring He-Man and Prince Adam in a sweet box (see our gallery here). Now the first round are hitting Wal-Marts exclusively with the intent to release via more retailers next year.
The Origins line over all is a re-imagining of vintage He-Man figures with updated articulation and paint. Each now get removable hands, joints in the elbows and knees, swivels at the boots, neck and ankle articulation. All while keeping the basic form factor from the original toys. Packaging is also a vintage throwback. The basic bodies and gear are also used on the MOTWWEU cross over figures.
We have a batch of the first round in hand. He-Man, Skeletor, Battle Cat, Prince Adam and the Sky Sled are all available after the break. We also got our hands on the Eternia Minis, which are blind box style figures in a plastic Castle Grayskull shell. These are even smaller versions of the MOTU minis from 2013(ish), (see our gallery for the SDCC set here). Read on to check it all out courtesy of Mattel!
