Ring In The New Year With New MOTU Origins Product Pre-Orders Going Live At Mightnight - No Longer A Walmart Exclusive Line

Ha! I can think of so many names that could have been good MOTU characters/gimmicks.

But I like that one... Might Knight.

I don’t suppose you’d let me steal it to possibly name a figure down the road? 😆  I’m working on a novel/action figure line (very MOTU inspired) and that would probably make for a cool character.

I mean, technically Jay wrote it (minus the K), but I'm sure that was a typo.

For the past year the only place in the US where you could get Mattel's new Masters of the Universe Origins figures was Walmart. We knew sometime in 2021 other retailers would be allowed to start carr

I feel like there was a bit of a missed opportunity in MOTU not naming a character "Mightknight."

Remember the new plot they've designed for the new animated series. Teela will be like the main character, He-man or Adam will be the one who'll have to use or regain the Power. Who else would oppose

Ahhh. Gotcha. Some of the original names for MOTU figures that ended up changed prior to production were interesting too. Like "Hose Nose". LOL

Can't say I disagree with you there... especially regarding distribution. Locally we went from totally empty pegs (collector's gobbling them up before they could even get put out) to them falling off the pegs. Would have helped to smooth the curve with more initially and less later on. 

And believe me, even though the exclusivity period with Walmart has ended and other retailers can sell them, that is not going to change things much, the distribution will still leave a lot to be desired, the best option will still be to get them online and well it is now when we will see the test of fire of the franchise, if this time around it can be kept afloat at the retail.

Keeping my fingers crossed. :) It seems the reception is good so far. Hope this is a good sign we'll really  have the #masterverse

Yeah, I'm hoping the new animated series and the Masterverse line helps push the other offerings along.

Speaking of the new animated series, there's a great probability, I'd think, it'll be aired in the middle of this year alongside or a bit earlier than the release (or preorder announcement) of #masterverse

I'd just like to get some actual images of a couple figures in that line, even if they are a little obscured by shadow or some other effect. Anything more than the silhouettes. 

Remember the new plot they've designed for the new animated series. Teela will be like the main character, He-man or Adam will be the one who'll have to use or regain the Power. Who else would oppose the Power but Skeletor himself?  It also goes to say that If there's a brilliant female warrior, a witch antagonist has to block her every move. Who else could that be? Now as with all toylines the main characters on the first season of the cartoon has to be released ahead of the others.  So... We got 3 or 4 of some of the 1st /2nd wave of #masterverse figured out just by deduction. 💪🏼 😏👍🏼

True. I'd like to have a peak at them though. :)

Was it ever confirmed anywhere that Masterverse  was going to be a continuation of Classics?

Nothing official on Masterverse has been said since Power-Con but there is what has been said a leaked image of Moss-Man https://toynewsi.com/241-37426

I don't know if continuation of Classics is the right word but my guess they will look good together on the shelf.

Oh yeah. I see that now. That looks like garbage. Really takes away from the rest of the vehicle's looks.

I'm glad to see that the Battle Armour figures still retain their Battle Damage Gimmick.  Was worried that they would more do the Classics style of different swappping chest plates.  It just wouldn't be the same without it, as it looks like they still retain most of their articulation, as I assume they only loose the waist joint.  Personally can live without the waist joint for these figures.

 

If they ever do the Hurricane Hodak, there is a part of me that really hopes they give him a swapping right arm to also give him a regular arm.  Though I suppose in this case, it would mean that they wouldn't have the Dial feature at the back of the figure like the original.  Though maybe the cannon arm can still have a spin feature at least of some sort, just be spinning the weapon on the cannon when you put the accessory inside, similar to how Helicopter toys are done.

 

In regards to He-man variants, if they decide to do Thunderpunch He-man, I'll strongly consider it.  I would be curious if they decide to keep the Cap Sound Feature on it.

Yep. That sounds about like a typical Mattel rollout.

Sad. Consolation for me: this shark vehicle can't accommodate my Classics (unless I see several reviews saying otherwise. So pass for now!!

Look good... ?? Yeah ... Crossing my fingers. But quality of materials and style encompassing that of Classics? May the good Sorceress guide you, #mattel 🙏🙏🙏

For those who are still interested in MoTUO here's a pre order link for th Origins wind raider on BBTS.

https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/147862

Oh boy! That Wind Raider was a childhood favorite of mine, but unfortunately I didn't get the chance to get it then--not in my parents' priority list. Got mine from BBTS. I think I got it when it was on sale. Good deal! :D
