Wow, similar to what happens here, there are some other stores that do have figures available but they are only He Man and Skeletor, the rest of the figures are scarce but especially Scareglow, Man E Faces, Ram Man, Ninjor, and the Battle Armor versions. Now, that's why I'm worried about the Masterverse line.

All the rest of MOTU figures I pre order them from the BigBadToyStore with the exception of wave 1 which I found at different Walmart stores hunting them like a mad man months ago...😃✌️

They had a great idea of splitting heman, skeletor and all the other characters into their own skus and waves.  But somehow we are still stuck with huge quantities of heman and skeletor with virtually no sign of anyone else.  Not sure how this solution was handled so poorly.  I think the various green colors on masterverse mossman blend together much more nicely in hand than the promo pics showed.

I wonder that as well, my concern here is in the end this will damage the franchise, I have seen many people discouraged due the poor availability of other figures than He Man and Skeletor.

I agree, it's so far a very concerning ordeal

Yeah the crazy thing is (I have probably said this a zillion times) that in Canada both He-Man and Skeletor are some of the hardest to find figures, which makes so much upset for those over here because nobody wants to start collecting when they can't find the tent pole characters, it's discouraged a ton of collectors I know, and that also is a scary thing, that in America nobody can get the secondary characters, but Canada we can't get the staples, the 2nd wave with Beast Man, Teela etc, barely came to Canada and that wave also had so many important starters, it just comes down to being a poorly distributed line, and I'm sad I feel the same as you it could really hurt it going forward, I love this line and want it to continue at least until we get all of the original line figures, but it would be wonderful if we could even see characters never before in the original line.

In Canada we also have such terrible and inconsistent pricing.. if you find these in a Walmart store they cost 14.99, if you buy them online they range from 22 to 35 a fig (and that's not scalpers), things need to get sorted out.

Mattel save this toy line, get better distro! make a universal price standard.

Origins are the first MOTU figs I've collected. 

At first I was like, "NOPE! Pass! Not a MOTU guy!" then I was like,  "That Beast Guy looks pretty cool", After I got Beast MAN, I had to have another.....and now I have about the whole line. 

Looking as MASTERVERSE I've been doing the saaaaame thing. No way, okay maybe Moss Man, and on it goes....But will it ultimately get me??? IDK. 

IF, there is an easy pre-order for the first wave...I know that Moss Man will be ordered lol. IF NOT, I may be able to resist this line and save all the scratch.

We first told you about this set last month, and now we have new official images for the upcoming Target Exclusive Battle-Damaged He-Man and Battle Cat Set. We checked and still no sign of it in the Target system but it will be released later this year. He-Man has vac-metal armor and an alternate head along with a complete power sword. Battle Cat will have a metallic armor paint. The base will connect to the one coming with the Wind Raider to form a landscape for in front of Castle Greyskull. You also get a couple critters with it.

Pretty lame looking set, they should re stock the basic figures.

They have to run a business and make money, so that would be the worst business decision imaginable given there are hundreds of He-Mans and Battle Cats cluttering almost every Walmart and Target out there. Giving us an actual vac-metal armor He-Man with an authentic 80s head is the text book example of making money.....except for that Target exclusive and 2 units per store part. Throw in a cool Battle Cat that's all effed up and a couple of those little creatures we see all over the painted art, and we'll all give you our money provided we're fortunate enough to find it. Hasbro got the memo and did right by Major Bludd (I've seen those everywhere for 2 weeks), so Mattel will hopefully follow suit and show Battle Armor He-Man some love and hit the.......target.

If you don't want this then stick around and buy the He-Man and Skeletor restocks coming later on that will have the 80s heads and full power swords. They need to get these 2020 figs clearanced out before they do this, though or make it a fan channel exclusive.

The set looks cool. I especially like the classic He-Man heads and have been tempted to get BattleCat more than once. If I run into the set at retail it might be my 3rd origins, the 1st He-Man. (i got orko and also a she-ra for my daughter).

I would not search for it at the aftermarket tho. I'm happy with the MOTUC.

I thought I wasn't gonna go for it because I already have the other versions, but I like this set a lot and plan on having multiple MOTU set ups displayed so I'm gonna go for it. Hope it's not too hard to get.

Now we probably expect a similar version with Skeletor and Panthor...😀👍

Annnnd I'll get that too, haha. Curious to what they'll do with Panthor in a matching set since we already have two versions.

Thee first cover looks great, I have to read the comics I didn't know they had already been released.

I asked local comic shop about these yesterday and was told that issue #1 doesn’t come out until July. So we haven’t missed them.

Thanks for the info, I supposed they would already be out, I'm not aware of the comics that are currently coming out and I thought I was already missing a couple of issues.

Yea. Me too. Especially if they are supposed to be books that lead up to the animated series. You would think they should come out before the show lol.

Maybe a shinier version with back/ dark details on him and Skeletor is a dark shine purple and his face/head from the Keldor pack that looks more evil.👍👋

Shown below are in-hand images for the first wave of Masters Of The Universe: Revelation Masterverse figures from Mattel. These come via Steve Ozer who is a Global Brand Marketing Manager at the company.

The regular figures in this first wave include He-Man, Skeletor, Evil-Lyn and Moss Man. These figures will reportedly start showing up at Walmart stores sometime this summer, and then will be available everywhere by August.

The Battle Cat and Deluxe Skelegod figures are currently showing up at Target stores and also will be available everywhere by August.

Mattel also sent influencer samples of the figure to Pixe-Dan to show off if you want additional looks at the figures.
