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! 

 

I think they are over-saturating the market with MOTU now. It is kind of like a delayed response when everyone wanted Classics in brick & mortar way back when.

I love the look of these, but from what I've been able to see on the shelves in both this line and the Origins line it's following the same ol' Mattel tried and failed structure, droves of He-Man and Skeletor on the pegs and all the "other" characters flying off the shelves faster than they can be stocked. I swear, a lot of these old stuffed shirts and their "put a new hat on Barbie" game plan need to step down for a more modern sales structure. They are capable because, not sure how many of you follow the line, but the Masters of WWE Universe seems to have a solid distribution structure. They all seem to be evenly packed and though some of the figures organically become HTF, none of them seem to be over packed over others. I just don't understand why they keep going back to the same failed structure with Masters of the Universe. It always turns out the same. They come blasting out of the gate to a strong reception then it just stops cuz no one can find the new figures they actually want. I'm afraid if I allow myself to get into this line I will invest all kinds of time and money into it only to see it prematurely cancelled before they get to a buncha the figures a lot of us want.

While I understand this point of view for Origins, I'm not sure how it applies for Masterverse? So far there's been only one He-Man figure, and two (very different) Skeletors. Personally He-Man was the second hardest to find for me behind Evil-Lyn. 

But aside from SkeleGod, every single character in the first 3 waves is unique and evenly packed.

Well, I wish that was the case where I live. I'm sure there are some regional factors that affect the way the figures are present on the shelves, but the few times I've seen the Masterverse figures at my local Target, which is the only place I've ever seen them, there were at least 3 each He-Man and Skeletor, 1 Moss Man and 0 Evil-Lyn, of course not counting a few Skelegod and Battle Cat.

Yesterday we told you how Sun-Man was coming to the Masters of the Universe Origins line. Well now we have our first official images for the figure. While details are lite at the moment it looks like at least this version of the figure is getting his own unique packaging which makes since being the character was originally created by a different company called Olmec Toys. The figure has two headsculpts, his shield and fire staff.

What's not entirely clear is whether this is some kind of special-edition figure being released and there will be a regular figure in Origins packaging released, and/or whether Sun-Man is getting his own sub-line from Mattel since Olmec had made other characters for the property back in the 80s. I am sure more details will be made available later today during Power-Con. Look for the Mattel panel which will be streamed online to begin at 1:30 PM ET which will will have coverage of right here on TNI.

I can see more figures coming by looking at the art on the right side of it...😉✌️

I don't think that guarantees more figures coming but certainly think it's possible.

We saw this the other week during Power-Con but now we have official images for the upcoming Masters of the Universe Origins Stridor which come via Amazon Canada. While the figure is listed on the website it is not yet available for purchase. Stridor comes with two different head pieces, blast effects, 2 cannons and a base that will go with the Castle Grayskull playset

While we got our first looks at this wave the other week during Power-Con, Mattel has yet to release any hi-res official images for their 7th wave of Masters of the Universe Origins figures. Never-the-less new in-hand images of the wave have surfaced online. These are from Singapore and come via Shaun W. The wave includes Buzz-Off, Jitsu, Sorceress and Stratos (1st appearance mini-comic). This wave is avaiable for pre-order from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

Geez the fun factor on this line is jus set to an 11.  They look great.  I just picked up a complete vintage Stridor at a swap for a very good price, but I think I might need the new one too.  

Caucasian Stratos just looks strange to me, I can't wait to get him!
