Evil-Lyn, Flying Fists He-Man, & Fisto Coming to MOTU New Eternia Masterverse

We’ve heard from an anonymous source that Evil-Lyn, Flying Fist He-Man, and Fisto Coming to the New Eternia Masterverse subline. With the release of New Eternia Thunder Punch He-Man and the reveal of New Eternia Battle Armor Skeletor, it appears that Mattel is positioning the New Eternia subline as an updated Masters of the Universe Classics line. There is also a mystery army builder that could be making it into the line so we also speculate as to who this might be. We are not sure how these figures fit into the line but with the Masterverse Wave 14 assortment revealed, Evil-Lyn, Flying Fists He-Man, & Fisto could be the next figure assortment for Masterverse wave 15.

Flying Fists He-Man

Flying Fist He-Man is a natural progression for the next Masterverse version of He-Man after Thunder Punch He-Man we got in Wave 13. The MOTU Classics Flying Fist He-Man that came out in the line in 2015 packed with Terror Claws Skeletor would be the closest version to what we might see in the Masterverse line.

Flying Fist He-Man was first released by Mattel in 1986. It was released on a large deluxe style card back. He had a flying fist action feature that was activated by rotating his waist and it caused his arms to move up and down which in turn made his 3 headed spinning mace go wildly spinning with an awesome Flying Fist move! He came with shiny vac metal chest armor that was part of his entire torso sculpt. This in turn made it that his neck then needed to be painted flesh colored. He-Man had a large red “H” on his chest and gold trim at his shoulders and waist. He had red wrists bracers and a red belt, with brown loin cloth and white topped brown boots. Pictured below is a carded Flying Fist He-Man, and the Toy Sorceress’s loose Flying Fist He-Man from her personal collection.

He came packed with The Flying Fists of Power mini comic which featured Flying Fist He-Man battling against Skeletor. There was a red version of Beast-Man peeking up at the corner of the comic cover. And you can see Castle Grayskull in the background. The story was written by Tim Kilpin and artwork by Jim Mitchell.

According to The Flying Fists of Power! | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom

The Sorceress gives He-Man the power of the Flying Fists, and new weapons. Meanwhile, at Snake Mountain, Skeletor decides to capture Prince Adam to use him as a bargain chip to make He-Man allow him entrance to Castle Grayskull.

Several days later, Prince Adam is relaxing at a peaceful spot, but a bird transforms into a horrible, huge vulture and attacks him. Then, Two Bad and Beast Man capture Adam. Skeletor binds Adam with mystic manacles that become tighter the more one struggles.

Skeletor brings his prisoner to Castle Grayskull, where the Heroic Warriors are standing guard. He tells them to call He-Man. Buzz-Off tries to find He-Man while the others promise Skeletor they won’t attack him whilke Adam is safe, but won’t allow him to enter Grayskull anyways.

Skeletor gets angry and blasts them with magical energy, then decides that rather than wait for He-Man, he will blast the jawbridge himself. While doing this, he forgets about Adam, who transforms into He-Man, still manacled, but then uses the flying fists to break the manacles. When Skeletor sees He-Man, he tries to blast him, but He-Man uses his spinning shield to reflect the blast against Skeletor, who escapes promising he will return with his own new power to oppose the Flying Fists.

When the Heroic Warriors ask what happened to Adam, He-Man tells he freed him. They apologize for not fighting back Skeletor because he had Adam, but He-Man reassures them that they did the right thing.

His next release came in the MOTU Classics line in 2015. He came packed in a two pack with Terror Claws Skeletor. This used the basic He-Man design, and he came with a painted silver chest armor, which was a disappointment because they did not make it vac metal like the vintage figure. Also, he did not have any flying fist action feature. This version would be the closest version to what we might see in the Masterverse line.

And finally, the latest released of Flying Fist He-Man came in 2022, in the MOTU Origins line. This version was an absolutely stunning homage to the original 1985 vintage figure, complete with his shiny vac-metal armor, He-man swings with awesome might!

Fisto was depicted as a powerful warrior and ally of He-Man. He was known for his immense strength and his unique cybernetic right hand, which had a large metal fist. Fisto was often portrayed as courageous, noble, and fiercely loyal to the cause of defending Eternia against the forces of evil. Fisto possessed incredible physical strength, which he utilized in battles against Skeletor and his minions. His cybernetic fist provided him with enhanced punching power, allowing him to deliver devastating blows. Fisto’s strength also extended to his non-cybernetic arm, making him a formidable hand-to-hand combatant.

In the Masters of the Universe Classics line, Fisto was given a larger than life sword that paid homage to his large fist. He also came with his classic sword that was a repaint of the sword that came with Tri-Klops. in the MOTU Classics lore, his bio reads, “The older brother of Duncan, Randor’s first Man-At-Arms, Malcom served under King Miro during the Great Unrest, but was wounded in battle and stricken with magical amnesia. Wandering through Eternia, he settled in the Mystic Mountains in a mining settlement unable to piece together how he lost his battalion. His life changed when the Snake Men attacked his town and he helped save the Masters of the Universe from their trap. But in doing so, Malcom shattered his right hand. In gratitude, Duncan replaced it with a robotic strong arm. Now known as Fisto, he has made up with his brother and fights as a heroic member of the Masters of the Universe, smashing evil with his giant knuckles!”


This would make the fourth Evil-Lyn in the Masterverse line and we are guessing that this New Eternia version is figure everyone has been waiting for. Although her Masters of the Universe Revelation figure had some promise at showing us a classic Lyn, the figure design was based too much on her cartoon appearance. The next two Evil-Lyn figure were also from the Masters of the Universe Revelation line so it’s exciting to see a proper Evil-Lyn that pays homage to her classic. Speaking of which, it appears that the Masterverse line is also including teases of future figures and this illustration on the side of the Skeletor and Bone Throne set shows Evil-Lyn with Screeech on a perch.


It would be amazing if Evil-Lyn came packed with Screeech as it would pay homage to how she was packed in the MOTU Classics line!


Here is an image of Evil-Lyn and Screeech and if they were released as a two-pack, it would make the first figure/creature set in the Masterverse line.


Raised alone by her father in the ruins of Zalesia, Evelyn left her home in a fit of teenage rebellion. Taking the name Evil-Lyn, she travelled Eternia learning from many of its great masters the ways of magic and the dark arts. While searching for new ways to increase her power, she met and fell in love with an ambitious alchemist named Keldor, and agreed to join his cause. After Keldor was transformed into Skeletor, he lost all emotional attachments to Evil-Lyn, and she began to scheme against him. In a series of miscalculations, she helped release both King Hssss and Hordak from their inter-dimensional prisons. Evil-Lyn uses her crystal ball to foresee the evil future!


Mystery Army Builder Speculation

1987 Movie Dark Trooper

There are not many army builders to choose from in the Masters of the Universe but we can draw some inspiration from the latest tease from the 1987 Masters of the Universe movie Beast Man box art. In addition to Blade being teased, you can also see one of Skeletor’s dark troopers lurking in the background. With movie Evil-Lyn and Beast Man making it into the Masterverse line,. it’s not far fetched that a Dark Trooper army builder would be coming as well!


In addition, the rear box art of Evil-Lyn’s movie figure shows Skeletor’s Dark Trooper army with Skeletor looking on!


A closer look at the art shows the stunning detail that was poured into the art, which creates a beautiful cosmic battle scene.
