40th Anniversary He-Man surfaces on Entertainment Earth, Big Bad Toy Store, Amazon, Canadian website, Zed Collectibles, for preorder! Can we expect to be seeing him soon?
In an absolutely beautiful tribute to the 1982 Vintage He-Man, Mattel revealed Anniversary He-Man in March, on that last day of Mattel’s big reveal week! Celebrating 40 years of MOTU, the most powerful man in the Universe returns in truly glorious fashion with this Anniversary Masterverse rendition of the 1982 vintage He-Man! This reveal was so exciting to us, not only because we were getting a 7″ vintage style He-Man, but because this opens the door for more vintage style Masterverse figures! We already saw a hint of that on the Leaked reveal list that included an Anniversary Skeletor!

In 40th Anniversary He-Man news, an Amazon listing has surfaced and the Canadian website, Zed Collectibles, has a preorder available. Canadian website, Zed Collectibles lists the potential ship date as September 2022 amd Amazon lists a potential ship date of July 2022 but we always take these dates with a grain of salt and as soon as we get any official intel on when Amazon may have it available, we will be sure to let you know! In the meantime, the Amazon Link is available below.
Since the 40th Anniversary Masterverse He-Man is not available to buy yet and it’s not even searchable, we put the link to the Amazon listing on the Masterverse Shop page so keep checking back to see when this figure becomes officially in stock, and we will also keep you posted if this figure actually comes in stock too!
Anniversary He-Man comes packaged artwork is a direct homage to Mattel’s 1982 He-Man, complete with the red rock burst, blue sky and classic Masters of the Universe logo! The nostalgia feels are happening all of this package! Paying tribute to the 1982 vintage He-Man Action figure we all know and love, He-Man includes a vintage style power sword, axe and shield and 2 swappable hands. He is also sporting a brown dry bush to accent his muscles. It looks kind of cool, but I am not too sure how I feel about it as it is a bit heavy in the bicep area, but perhaps that is just this prototype figure.
