Special thanks to the Baroness of Toys for letting us know that one of our favorite Masters of the Universe figures, the MOTU Origins Moss Man has been found on Collector’s Bay! The German toy site is called The Collectors Bay and gives even more confirmation to the recent MOTU Origins Moss Man, who has been eluding fans for so long, seems to now be inching closer to being a reality! As many of you have been asking where is our gentle pine smelling flock friend of the forest has been? Well, the Baroness of Toys came across this conversation on a Facebook post by Joshua Morris and fellow collector commented that Rene Lekkte responded to a comment by Joe Fogg that Moss Man was up for preorder on the Collector’s Bay. What this Moss Man preorder listing on the Collector’s Bay tells us is that he is at that deluxe price point and will be released in 2023 and that is not a figment of our imagination, and indeed will be sold in the US. Now it was previously told to us that Moss Man was going to be a Walmart Exclusive, could this be the mystery listing we found on Walmart? Read more about it below.
As we previously reported, we had found an unnamed MOTU Origins Deluxe Listing has been found on Walmart online, and it is a mystery as to what newly leaked figure it could be? We have 3 top contenders that this Mystery MOTU Origins Deluxe Listing could possibly belong to: Moss-Man, Dragon Blaster Skeletor, and Snake Face. Moss-Man is said to be a Walmart exclusive, and Dragon Blaster Skeletor, and Snake Face listings were recently found on the Collectors Bay Website for Preorder. Let’s take a look at each and see who this listing below could belong to?

The Product Details on the page do not give us any specific clues either to who this listing could belong too, but let’s explore each below.
Moss Man (Walmart Exclusive?)
Moss Man is our biggest contender for this mystery MOTU Origins Deluxe Listing! He was revealed at the Mattel 40th Anniversary Press and Influencer last October, so we know he is definitely a confirmed figure coming to the line! It’s been 5 months since his reveal, so the timing might make sense. And out of the three figures we are considering, Moss-Man is the only one said to be a Walmart exclusive, so this one gets the best chance!
MOTU Origins fans have been asking for Moss Man for the longest time, and now our requests have been answered but with a slight twist. We are finally getting a freakin’ FLOCKED MOSS MAN in the MOTU Origins line and we personally cannot be more excited!! After all this time, I have been waiting for Moss Man to join the Origins line, and in the Fall of 2023. When this was announced at the presser event, it was announced that he will be a wait for it….. Walmart exclusive! The Lord of the Forests pine smelling friend will only be available through Walmart. So, this could very well be the unnamed listing!
Moss Man will be a deluxe figure give that he will be fully flocked, come with an alternate LOP Style Beast Man head. Mossy’s head looks to be based on the Beast Man head, but he is much more friendlier looking with a big smile on his face looking very Filmation like! They nailed it with this head sculpt! He will also include his vintage style club, yellow Beast Man armor as an homage to those that used to put this weapons pack armor on their Mossy’s, and also a brown Pig Head club as well.

Moss Man is one of He-man’s closest allies, the ever so gentle friend of the forest, Mossman! As his name reveals, he is a man made of moss, who can camouflage himself into foliage and other green vegetation, as well as control all plant life. The figure is essentially a green repaint of Beast Man, flocked with “moss” with the fangs painted over and a pine scent added to the body. He has a mace that is a recast of a weapon from the original Castle Grayskull.
We first saw Moss Man on Stinkor’s card back where he looked like he was emerging from the bushes to take on the evil warrior with the power of stink! You an see him with a fierce look on his face, armed with his mace and ready for battle!
If you weren’t paying attention, you might have missed the arm coming out of the ground from the side of the Eternian Palace Guard box with the classic mace busting through the ground. We then saw Moss Man on the Flying Fists He-Man card art, ironically holding a torch, and as well all know, it was fire that did him in the Masters of the Universe Revelation Netflix series, but I am sure this battle turned out great for him!
