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.
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!
Time for another round of DC Comics Multiverse from Mattel as we march to the epic conclusion of the line! Wave 12 is the Batman Ninja wave and consists of TV Black Lighting, Rebirth Jon Stewart Green Lantern, along with Titans Nightwing, Starfire, Beast Boy and Wally West (red hair) Kid Flash. The Collect N Connect is Batman Ninja. All are in 6 Inch scale and feature Mattel’s recent levels of articulation which is very solid – double jointed, swivel cuts, rocker feet and the like. Paint is solid for a mass release retail figure on them all, with Black Lightning getting a more complicated sculpt and paint application to match the TV show look. The rest are simple by design and executed appropriately.
Batman Ninja however really shines, he has ornate sculpt and paint to match head to toe and a rubberized cape that moves with posing. Articulation is great allowing for a wide range of elbow movement to compliment the sword. While it isn’t as refined as import versions already on market, it is a really nice figure in hand all together and worthy of attention. IMO, he’s just about the right for the character being a secondary option that only some will be into. The only downsides are that the cape can not be removed without losing the head, and the sheath for the sword does not attach to the body.
All in all a solid wave, especially for the Titans love. These guys are out now, hit our sponsors below along with sites like Amazon and eBay. Read on to check out over 120 HD images of the entire wave thanks to Mattel!
