Here is the official single carded figure assortment for MOTU Origins Wave 9: Pig-Head 200x He-Man & Skeletor + Mantenna
According to yo_tengo_el_poder via Terence Tan on Facebook, he got his lucky hands on what appears to be the official MOTU Origins Wave 9 assortment. We originally reported the Wave 9 figures would be different from these and it appears that our theory that the wave assortment changes were happening so it is great to finally get an “official” word, even if it is not from Mattel. Although the figures we had predicted for Wave 9 all came to fruition, it looks like the figure assortment was change and as we have said before, Mattel reserves the right to change the figure assortments and it looks like they did! The figures include Pig-Head from the Rulers of the Sun line, 200x Skeletor, 200x He-Man, and Mantenna. According to yo_tengo_el_poder, he said:
Masters of the Universe Origins wave 9 figures are already being seen in Malaysia, which are also the first to bear the 40th anniversary logo. They are Pig Head from Rulers of the Sun, Mantenna from the Horde (which despite having an Action Feature is not Deluxe) and the 200x versions of He-Man and Skeletor.yo_tengo_el_poder
We first saw the in package image of the 200x version of He-Man back on April 28, 2022 where Axel Gimenez revealed that that this figure was going to be part of the Wave 9 assortment and in fact he is! The in package image looks fantastic and it is it looks like there are no minor changes in the figure from the official image, which is not often the case.
Along side 200x He-Man, We also saw the 200x version of Skeletor back on April 28, 2022 where Axel Gimenez revealed that that this figure was going to be part of the Wave 9! From the in-hand image, it looks like there was some tooling or redesign of the face and the hood. It also could be the camera angle but we are excited to see this figure in the hands of this lucky collector.
Official images of Pig-Head were revealed by yo_tengo_el_poder back on May 2, 2022. He is the second figure from the Rulers of the Sun line and it is great to see the “Wicked Enemy of Sun-Man” join the Origins crew so early! Pig-Head looks great and it is nice to see the final colors of this figure on card.
On the same day, 200x He-Man and 200x Skeletor packaged shots revealed by Axel Gimenez , we also saw Mantenna, where he revealed that that Mantenna was going to be part of the Wave 9! This is the first figure in the line to have an action feature but not be created as a deluxe figure, which is great because there were many figures that were produced later in the line for the vintage line that had action features and were single carded figures. Mantenna looks unchanged from the official packaged images we saw and his colors came out great!
