Today I was able to score the newest batch of Masters of the Universe Origins products from Mattel at my local Target store, well everything but the Deluxe Battle Armor Skeletor figure. The items I got included Panthor, Deluxe Battle Armor He-Man, She-Ra, Roboto, Zodac and Mer Man. The basic figures cost $14,99 each, while the Deluxe figure was $19.99 and Panthor was $24.99. Here are the DPCI#'s though the figures are currently not listed on Target's website. Panthor DPCI# 087-16-4345 Battle Armor He-Man DPCI# 087-16-5586 Basic Figures DPCI# 087-16-7355 These of course are not exclusives and if you don't want to have to hunt around for them you can pre-order all of these and more at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. You can check out over 100 images for these figures below in our GALLERY. The backdrops features in many of the images were provided by our sponsor DioramaPrints.com .

If you have collected any of the previous Origins released last year at Walmart then you basically know what to expect as far as articulation, paint apps and overall quality. These are meant to be as much for the kids as they are adult collectors and the prices match that line of thought. They are more articulated than the original MOTU figures, but the detail and such isn't on par with say the more recent Classics line. The figures are about 5" so they aren't as tall either. You can also take the figures apart and mix and match. This is nice with like the Battle Armor He-Man figure since you can use these heads as well as the legs on the regular version if you want. The boots actually have a little more paint detail on the Deluxe one. The chest flipping action on my He-Man works pretty good. You can have the chest look clean, have one blade cut or two. when you push the chest it flips just like on the original toy. Panthor is not bad but it would have been nice if they had given him ankle articulation on the feet so you could more easily get all four feet to stay flat on the ground. The Battle Cat has the same issue. If you can wait, I would probably suggest you get the Walmart flocked version coming out later this year. It won't have articulated feet but I think the flocking will look better than the plastic and more in keeping with the original toy. The saddle is removable. Out of the new basic figures, I actually think Roboto was really well done. He has the clear plastic chest and when you turn him at the waist the gears in the chest move and his mouth opens and closes. You also get a cool clicking noise. I never had the original Roboto figure but I am guessing it was very similar. Zodac is probably the most boring of the 4. He only comes with a puny red gun and he has what looks like unpainted fur or feathers on his skin under his armor. I don't recall if this was something on the original figure but it looks odd to me. Mer Man has his bright yellow sword and is another member of Skeletor's original crew of henchmen. I just need Tri-Klops which is coming soon to round out the crew. I will say Mer Man seems a little bigger than the others. I could be wrong but I don't think he should be taller than Trap Jaw or Beastman. Finally there is She-Ra which I mostly like. Her sword is much smaller than He-Man's and I am not a fan of the headpiece though I know thats a nod to the original toy and it is removable. The holo pattern on the headpiece and belt do pick up the light nicely. I like the soft-good red cape but not as fond of the white material they used at her shoulders and waist. She has hard and long plastic yellow hair which I don't think looks bad, but it does limit head movement a fair amount. She can't look up at all which sucks when your trying to put her in poses where she holds her sword up in the air. The art on Panthor is gorgeous and you get mini-comics with all the figures. The basic figures in this wave all have the same mini-comics like we've seen with the previous waves and I think the Deluxe figures will all have the same mini-comic as well. At least the two Battle Armor ones and Ram Man which has yet to be released. So that's it.
