Given that Mattel is running out of announced Mattel Creations exclusives, we surface the rumor that God Evil-Lyn could be coming!
Mattel Creations launch calendar is a great resource and a fun way to speculate on what could be next in store for the Masters of the Universe Mattel Creation exclusives. Thanks to Carlos D Caceres for tipping us off on yet another intriguing image from the Mattel Creations Launch Calendar, which states that there is a Masters of the Universe figure set to go live February 14, 2023 at 9am PT, which is Valentine’s Day! The buzz around the net is that this figure could this be He-Skeletor, in our opinion, He-Skeletor is the most likely candidate and makes the most sense given he was revealed, along side Frog Monger, at the 40th Anniversary MOTU Press and Influencer event. Also, recall a God Evil-Lyn Masterverse figure was revealed at Comic Con 2022, as was rumored to be a Mattel Creations exclusive. We’ve also noticed that Mattel has been putting dollar signs ($) on the launch calendar, sometimes with one $ or two $$’s. Before we dive into the rumor, let’s take a look back at the Mattel Creations launch calendar and to see what has been associated with the $ and $$ price points!
Is there significance to the number of $’s?
Based on recent releases, we can say that, based on the evidence, that there is no significance associated with the Mattel Creations dollar signs associated with the launch calendar. We were hoping this could be a clue to figure out if the $$’s would be associated figures with higher price points, but it appears to be no rhyme or reason associated with them. Here are some examples:
Rumored Masterverse Mattel Creations Exclusive
It has been a while since we got a proper Masterverse Mattel Creation Exclusive! By proper, we mean a figure that goes along with the design of the Masterverse subline so we are excluding the Virgil Abloh Masterverse figures that were cast in brown toned plastic.
God Evil-Lyn or Powers of Grayskull Evil-Lyn (or whatever you want to call her) from Part 2 of the Revelation series looks freakin amazing! They did a fantastic job capturing her likeness in the head sculpt and giving her that buff look she had in the series! The shoulder armor looks great as well as the large necklace piece that is extending from the ‘H’ in the middle of her chest! The soft goods cape is wired like King Grayskull’s, which is the first time we are seeing this treatment for a standard figure.
We have no idea if there is an truth to this rumor but, according to a post found on the Fwoosh forums, a Comic Con 2022 attendee spoke with a Mattel rep, that said the following: “God-mode Evil-Lyn would be sold “direct to consumer” which I understood to mean she’s going to be a Mattel Creations exclusive.”
Remaining MOTU Origins Mattel Creations Exclusive
The lone hold out from the 40th anniversary Mattel Creations Press and Influencer event is He-Skeletor, and given that the Mattel Creations launch calendar is teasing a figure that is coming out on Valentine’s Day 2023, this figure would make the most sense!
Happy Valentine’s Day MOTU Fans, thanks to Carlos D Caceres for tipping us off on yet another intriguing image from the Mattel Creations Launch Calendar part of their website set to go live February 14, 2023 at 9am PT! He-Skeletor is the most likely candidate and makes the most sense and is the last figure left, that was revealed, to go up for sale.
He-Skeletor might seem like a new character to us in the United States, but he is based on the comic series He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse from the old German audio plays. In this story, the heroic Keldor transforms from Anti-Eternia into He-Man to defeat Anti-He-Man. Known as the “The Most Powerful Keldor in the Multiverse” includes this new He-Skeletor comes with his power sword, axe, and a shield. Same as the previous Mattel Creations exclusives, he includes an exclusive character illustration on the front of his cardback and full new artwork on the rear of the cardback.The artwork features He-Skeletor raising up his Power Sword with the world of Anti Eternia in the background. He too will also include a new mini comic. He is also set to be released in Spring 2023.
