Zavvi.com has listed for pre-order a number of new Masters of the Universe Origins figures from Mattel for pre-order. Some like Sorceress, Jitsu, Clawful, Buzz-Off, Sun-Man and Anti-Eternia He-Man we have seen listed before. A few however appear to be new which includes Horde Trooper and Stratos. Since we've already gotten Stratos we are thinking this might be some kind of variant. The Horde Trooper will likely be a white version from this years Power-Con exclusive set.

Also listed are two new deluxe figures with Terror Claw Skeletor and Flying Fist He-Man. The final new listing is a vehicle for Stridor. These are all being listed with a December 31 release date. Hopefully Mattel will get around to officially revealing these next month during Power-Con.

New Mattel product images for the upcoming kid oriented He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe Netflix CGI Series have hit the internet giving us our first looks at Man-At-Arms as well as a Snake Attack playset. Also shown are two versions of He-Man and a Skeletor figure which we have seen before. As we have reported before the figures will cost $9.99 each. No word on the cost of this playset but we have seen listings for figure vehicle sets that will cost $19.99. No word on when this second He-Man series will premier on Netflix or when toys will hit actual shelves.

I'll bite with a few of these.  He man gives me Snake Armor vibes and that is my favorite look for him.  Interesting take with Man at Arms...hopefully there are some guns that will go with him.  Skeletor has a nice sinister look about him.

This new line is destined to be the master of the discount bin, maybe the show will have several seasons like She-Ra's reboot did but in terms of merchandise I don't see much to come, yeah I could be wrong but something is sure Origins will continue to out sell both this line and Masterverse.

Not if the only things Origins can keep stocked  are He-mans and Skeletors.  Time will tell.  I mean this would be a first if you are wrong but hey....we'll see.

Mattel still hasn't learned how to distribute waves and tends to over pack the main people.  Revelations and this line may do well for a bit based on new figs as long as Origins drowns in the main 2 clogging pegs.

Excited for wave 2 of Revelation...hopefully there will be a wave 3

I'll grab some of these new figs

You keep the hope alive for Origins.

I've pretty much dropped it.

I see everything where I'm at. I just bought the Target exclusive vac-metal Battle Armor He-Man/Battle Cat set off the shelf and I saw regular Battle Armor He-Man on the peg at a Walmart on the other side of town along with a deluxe Hordak someplace else. I've had few problems picking up most Origins in stores. All the Targets had 3 or 4 Land Sharks, so there were around 20 of those in town. They've since sold out, but it isn't hard to find this stuff around here.

We're sitting on He Mans and Skeletors.  Target has Panthors.  Two packs barely show up (I've only seen Battle Armor He Man and a Hordak once).

It is not about distribution (wich is lazy anyway), there will simply be no strong demand, most of the MOTU fans I know are not interested in the reboot series, kids don't give a heck about MOTU (or toys in general) and the backlash caused by Kevin Smith's ideas are going to dent the acceptance of everything based on his series.

Mattel just doesn't care about the common sense notion of even case packs and floods the shelves with main characters. We'll see that in Revelations and more than likely that new line.  I'm still cherry picking the ones I like.

Revelation is doing what Revelation is doing.  You dislike it (whatever)...I'm indifferent.  But the figs looks good to me...especially as a 200x fan so they have my support(as a cherry picker)

I have a few Origins and would love to find Ram Man but shelves are bare (due to Covid as well so I kinda understand) and that's on Mattel.  

You ever consider this could bring in more fans because more people see themselves represented?  That's how these toy lines will survive.  People are just over seeing all the figs look alike.

I'd rather he just keep it moving and not speak/quote/react/whatever with me period but I got you.  

Keeping it civil.

Back on topic.

Can't wait for more pics of these new Motu figs.  For 9.99 they could be nice desk fodder.

 

 

Then don't post things you know will start $#!& with him. But, I tell you what: I am strongly encouraging you to put him on ignore.

@Mr_Scary92, I also strongly encourage that you to put Killmonger on ignore. DO NOT reply to him, and do not reply to me right now.

The next one of you to reply to the other AT ALL in this thread or any thread, will not be able to post for at least a week.

Just saw the lil kiddies masters trailer. Definitely captures a Disney Pixar type of feel.

I imagined Prince Adam from Revelations at the end in a dream like state and that was his dream! 

Crazy to imagine 3 motu toylines all in one toy aisle. I will definitely need to take pics of that to look back on!

As an adult fan I just can't say that I'm interested, the designs seem weird to me, except for MAA although it looks like a scifi generic alien character, ok I'm not the target audience for this line, we'll see what children think but honestly I would still have to see a child interested in MOTU since the only ones I've seen looking for the figures are adults only.

Although, I think, it would be more interesting to see which one out of those 3 lines stays warming up the pegs after some time.

This new show is definitely..... something. I was kind of hoping this would give revelations a run for its money but I just dont see it happening. It kind of reminds me of what they did to the Reboot show from the 90s where it just went in such a different direction, it was very off putting. But as stated before, im definitely not the target audience even tho I do enjoy some kids cartoons more than I would expect.
