January 27 2023 UPDATE: In Hand Images and Pig-Head Discovered on Walmart and Paulmart
Special thanks to slime_pit_custodian for posting this amazing image of Masterverse Pig-Head! From he told us, he was on late at night on Amazon and the figure was up for preorder! So what did we learn today? Get no sleep and troll Amazon all day long lol!
Exclusive In Hand Images
We have to give an extra special shout out to slime_pit_custodian for sending us exclusive images, that you can only see here! He was also kind enough to send us the UPC, which scanned up at Walmart, meaning Pig-Head will be a wider retail release versus an Amazon exclusive so thank you for helping solving to solve that puzzle.
Pig-Head’s box art is awesome! On the back is shows him fending of foes in battle and using his spike mace to break a shield. The side box art is the most impressive as we see a, what looks to be, a victorious Pig-Head! The bio reads: “The Rulers of the Sun punished Prince Segor of House Shadus for his cruelty, banished him to the shadows, and transformed him into Pig-Head – half man, half pig. Now he has one goal: steal the energy from the First Sun, so that he might harness its power and rule the galaxy. Only one man stands in his way: Sun-Man!”
Pig Head Discovered on Walmart, Amazon, and Paulmart
We now know of 3 places where you can source Masterverse Pig-Head so check out the retailers below to see if he is in stock:
Amazon has Pig-Head listed in their database and here is a link to the product page for the figure comes in stock!
Also, the 9th wonder of the world (after Andre The Giant), Paultmart, has got a shipment of Pig-Head figures and are up for purchase on his website! Just a note, if the page comes up as not found or it links to the home page, that means the figure is out of stock and you are SOL!
Today posted on the official Sun-Man | Rulers of the Sun (@officialsunman) instagram page, we got more images of Pig Head. But this time, the out of package image is a bit perplexing as the colors look quite a bit off! Not sure if this was a color rendition issue on the image, or if this is what the production figure will look like, let’s hope it’s not the later!? The green is a bit too dark and the pink looks very dark as well. The strange this is, the in package shot they posted looks great and correct. Also you will notice that the dragon pet doesn’t look as translucent plastic as well. Maybe it was their light box, let’s hope! Once we get more official images, we will be sure to update you, but for now, we have a very bright green Pig Head to contend with.
If you recall, Pig Head was revealed at this year’s SDCC and he was the standout of the bunch with his bright pops of color and his pack out! Well, thanks to CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS on Instagram, we’ve got an official in package image of the new Masterverse Pig Head figure. He looks amazing in Masterverse from and the Rulers of the Sun figures look SO MUCH better this way! He comes with a serpent’like piece that goes around his neck, a mace, his trusty shield, and an extra set of hands.
Pig Head was revealed at this year’s SDCC and he was the stand out of the bunch with his bright pops of color and his pack out! Also, later this year, Pig-Head appeared on a leaked list of Amazon Exclusives back in Sepetember so let’s take a close look at the arch nemesis of Sun-Man from the Rulers of the Sun Masterverse sub-line.
There are a great deal of varying textures that make up Pig-Head and we must say that he looks pretty spectacular translated into the Masterverse line. His metallic armor really stands out and the harness across his chest gives that nice leathery feel.
He comes with a lot of cool accessories, most of which are the translucent blue mace and his serpent!
Below you can see the images of Pig Head as revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. He looks incredible, and you can see that his official production image looks just as good as the prototype! With his bright green skin, blue and pink accented outfit and tons of textures on his helmet, armor and loin cloth, this will be one spectacular Masterverse figure!

According to CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS, translated to English:
It seems that we have seen a lot more this year than we see, several Origins and Masterverse releases prepared for exclusive shows by Amazon.CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS (@canaldosrosmineiros) • Instagram photos and videos
Happy with all these names! Exclusive Motu News! Looks like there’s a lot more to come next year, several Origins and Masterverse releases set to come out exclusively on Amazon. Happy with all these names! Canal dos Rosmineiros always bringing the best of Motu news!

Pig Head, the Wicked Enemy of Sun Man is more or less a direct translation of the vintage figure but with much brighter colors. The pinks, greens, and blues definitely pop more on this figure and more more loud, which goes along with the other MOTU Origins figures.
According to Pig-Head’s Origins story:
Zegor was the rich and villainous Prince of the House of Shadus. He was known throughout the land as the devious and spiteful lord who spread despair among his workers. He used his wealth to build torturous chambers in which to punish those who did not obey him. The workers who remained of purest souls fled, to live among the House of Dynus. Once a man of handsome features, Zegor was transformed, by the Ruler of the Sun, into a hideous creature – half-man/half-hog and was forever to be called “Pig-Head.” Pig-Head is an angry creature. He lives with one burning desire – to bring dishonor and shame to all those who live among him. He has trained his demons to follow his evil plan. He and his followers will always lurk beneath the sun and never shall they dwell in the land of paradise. Pig-Head was banished into the dungeons of Hades, where he forever tries to harness the sun’s beautiful rays and use its power for his evil doings.Rulers of the Sun Online Toyshow
Will they make a Zegor figure? Probably not but he’s on the card art so it’s definitely in the realm of possibility. If they did, this would open the door to more figures that were not in the main MOTU Vintage line and it would be cool to see more Origins figures beyond the 10 we might be getting if they build the entire line out.
