Power-Con 2020 Online Event Coverage - Panthor And More

Recommended Posts

In a little pre virtual Power-Con kick-off, Pixel-Dan chats with Josh and Reuben from Mattel where they revealed a couple of new products for the line. First up are new mini-vehicles and figure cobo sets. They will be doing He-Man and the Road Ripper along with Skeletor and the Roton.

Also revealed for the Origins line is a new Panthor for Skeletor to ride on. The saddle is removable. Unfortunately he is not going to flocked.

In the video they also mention they will be releasing mini-multi pack sets featuring 4 figures each, one of which will be exclusive to the multi-pack. Finally they state in the Spring they have 9 more new items to show as the line branches out from just being released at Walmart. The Spring line will be shown off during the Mattel virtual Power-Con panel on Sunday at 7:30 PM ET. We of course will bring you full coverage of the event when it happens. You can see Pixel-Dan's video below

I want that Panthor, I'm not crazy about the lack of flocking, the minis' vehicles are neat, it seems they will also release some minis packs, that's great 'cause I'm not very fond to the blind box cocept.

I wish that Panthor was flocked but ultimately no big deal he still looks great. To me the biggest news and I knew this beforehand but it was confirmed later in the video that the Origins line will get a wide release starting in 2021 so there is absolutely no need to be stressing on if Walmart will or will not stock these on their website or stores. Not a big fan of the constant sellouts so I'll just wait.

I am very displeased with the lack of flocking on Panthor, they must have a variant down the road

I have mixed feelings about the flocking.  I love my vintage flocked Panthor so I get wanting that again.  On the flip side I still have my flocked vintage Panthor already so I don’t mind getting an unflocked one as something similar but different from my original.  Maybe what we need this time around is a new flocked Battle Cat to go with our vintage flocked Panthor and an unflocked Panthor to go with our vintage unflocked Battlecat.

I’m trying to recall—what was the plan for the new minis line???  Were these supposed to be blind boxed?  Were they supposed to be Walmart exclusive?  I know they told us what the plan was at either last year’s SDCC or Power-Con but I don’t remember what that info was.

Blind Boxes, from what they said months ago

but maybe things changed?

 

but there is also going to be the ones that include vehicles , that supposedly at least the He-Man w/Roadripper and Skeletor w/Roton, will not be blind box, so I think that the vehicle assortment is non mystery

Today kicked off the 2020 Power-Con virtual event with some new Masters of the Universe reveals for Mega Construx. Fisher Price Little People and Imaginext.

For Mega Construx it was announced they will be doing a Flocked Panthor with Skeletor set as well as Battle Ram which will feature figures of Mekaneck and Tri-Klops. Also announced were three Skeletor Head Sets. Each one comes with a large Skeletor head and figure mini-vehicle type set. They showed He-Man with Jet Sled, Trap Jaw with Laser Cannon and Fisto with weapons set.

The Castle Grayskull playset will be getting a re-release next year and there has been talk about doing a Snake Mountain playset, but nothing confirmed for that at this time.

Check out images for all of these items below.

I think it's kinda funny the Mega Construx Panthor is flocked but not the Origins one.

The only interesting stuff to me so far are the mega construx sets, I only have the Windraider and the first 5 pack but they haven't offered any re issues for Scareglow Man at Arms and the vintage color Evil-lyn, so that's is not encouraging me to go any further.

Hmm, the same excuse as the Panthor from Classics, flocking doesn't go well with joints, go figure if that's true.

They did indicate in the panel that they were aware Scareglow was hard to find and thus they were going to rerelease him (but I’m not sure if they gave details on how they are going to do the rerelease ie straight single card rerelease, In a multi pack, etc)

Everything was great except for the Walmart exclusive flocked Panthor and the Target exclusive Keldor & Kronis 2 pack, those two items are going to screw me up!.

Shocked by the new 7" line it might outsell Origins and the 6 inch only guys will loose their heads over it.

If they'll scale with the Classics, I'm in.

Sounds like they will be and I am sure compatible with the vehicles and playsets.

In all honesty, I will probably hold off on Origins and wait for Masterverse. My guess they must feel kids with the new cartoon will really support Origins. I have no doubt a number of collectors will get both but I think overall Masterverse will be more popular, assuming collectors will be able to find them when they come out.

Exactly my thoughts, maybe I might do the same if Origins gives me trouble getting them, but yes, the problem will be finding 'em.

This Power Con was awesome. Lots of great announcements for Origins & Mega Construx. 

I'm intrigued with the Masterverse stuff too.

The Highlights for me were the Land Shark Vehicle, the deluxe figures and the flocked panthor.
