We just got Space Sumo dropped on us as the December 14, 2022 surprise listing, and during that drop, we saw a production image of Frog Monger in the promotional images. Frog Monger was the most likely candidate to go up for a Mattel Creations preorder and it is great to see him go up for preorder. But if you remember at the Mattel 40th anniversary celebration press and influencer event, they also revealed He-Skeletor so he is most likely next on the list.
Frog Monger is a character that originally comes from one of the creatures from the Castle Grayskull dungeon grate sticker. But Mattel has been sprinkling him on several package artwork throughout the Origins line, so we figured it was just a matter of time before they made him into an official figure!

Frog Monger Reveal
Frog Monger was revealed back on October 11, 2022 as part of Mattel’s Press and Influence MOTU event. He is a super bright green frog man with yellow spots on his arms and legs. He is wearing a metal collar around his neck and a little antenna beanie on his head. He looks to share some parts with the standard MOTU buck and but with a new torso and creature arms and legs of Skeletor. His face is super cute with bright yellow eyes and big yellow fang teeth. He looks to come with a new weapon and unique comic book. He will come in a typical single card release Mattel Creations style card back with an illustration of Frog Monger on the front and a beautiful art piece on the back. There looks to be some additional creatures hinted on the back of the card back as well. Perhaps a skeleton warrior and it looks like maybe King Chooblah in the background? He is set to be released by Mattel Creations in Spring of 2023. You can view more photos that Planet Eternia posted in their detailed article.
