Like we reported earlier in the week, the Deluxe Masters of the Universe Revelation Man-At-Arms is confirmed to be a Target exclusive for the time being, along with Two-Bad! We are sure the other retailers like Big Bad Toy Store and Entertainment Earth will be getting this figure in the coming months so be on the lookout! Also, Target has put up the entire new assortment of Masterverse figures on their website:
Man-At-Arms Deluxe Revelation Figure
Special thanks to Planet Eternia, Pixel Dan, yo_tengo_el_poder, and Planet Eternia for bringing the coverage of Mattel’s Masters of the Universe 40th Anniversary Press & Influencer Day reveals! Influencers like Planet Eternia and Pixel Dan were onsite and got to participate live in the event and they got to tour Mattel’s facilities! How cool is that! They got a sneak peak into what is coming out for Masters of the Universe this year and in to 2023 so let’s take a look! What a way to end the final MOTUesday then with a boat load of amazing reveals, so let’s dive in!
Man At Arms gets a second version of him made, this time he is older and wiser. This version of Man At Arms comes from later on in the Revelation series when there is the great war, and he comes without his helmet! This version is an older, and more battle worn and will be a deluxe figure. He includes his large lazer canon, MAA Armor, a soft goods cape, an alternate helmeted head and alternate hands. You can switch from his civilian clothing to his battle army outfit.

Target has put up the Deluxe Man-At-Arms on their website and we can get a closer look at the Masterverse Revelation Man-At-Arms deluxe figure to tide us over until it is released!
Masterverse New Eternia Two Bad
Special thanks to chaztheguru for the intel as he spoke with an inside source who revealed that Masterverse Two Bad is going to be a Target exclusive in the United States. Just like how the New Eternia Beast Man who showed up out of nowhere, who was a Target exclusive for a limited time, it looks like the Double-Headed Evil Strategist will be heading for the big red bullseye first! Since we got the figure in hand early (and reviewed him), we are providing the UPC so you can scan Two-Bad at the Target store using their price checking kiosks or the Target app.
NOTE: We are not sure if release will be a limited time exclusive for Target and it will show up on other online retailers like Entertainment Earth but this solves the mystery as to why this figure has not gone up for preorder yet in the United States.
We first got to see Roboto on display at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, and now we get are our first official in package images of him and he looks amazing! He comes with interchangeable accessories for his hands, which include a canon, a regular hand, and a laser blaster hand. His is also packed with the 2 glowing molten hot halves of the power sword which in the Revelation cartoon, he melded back together. You will be able to hold them to give him the look of forging the two halves of the Power Sword back together. His jaw is slightly hinged where you can move it up and down just like the original. His body is translucent where you can see the inside workings of his collider.
Box and Art Reveal
This package is typical of all the rest of the Masterverse figures, and dawns the Revelation logo at the bottom. Roboto is nicely displayed in his window packaging with the 2 red hot halves of the power sword next to his hands, as if he is ready to forge them back together, like he did in the animated series. Roboto includes 2 robotic arm attachments, and the aforementioned 2 red hot halves of the power sword. Check out the video below for a full 360 view of his packaging. We also get a look at the amazing artwork which we will look at in full detail below.
On the side of the box, we get amazing artwork by @eamonodonoghue. Here we see Roboto glowing with cosmic energy and a dark lurking tree in the background. His robotic chest is lit with glowing energy as well as if he is coming alive!
Rear Box Art
Taking a look at the rear art, we get more incredible artwork by @eamonodonoghue! We can see Roboto firing his laser arm cannon to an unknown enemy and some creatures learking in the background. There are also some bat-like looking creatures flying above and 2 Eternian planets in the sky.

Here is a closer look at that amazing artwork.
Official images were also posted on Amazon’s Sorceress Evil-Lyn product page and is now on Target.
This figure looks amazing and it’s about time that she was made for the Masters of the Universe Revelation Masterverse line! She comes packed with an extra set of hands and her trusty scepter. These Sorceress Evil-Lyn Masterverse box images also give you a better look at the figure as well!
The art is always amazing and the team did a fantastic job! The back box art shows her in a bat pose with an illustration of the creature set off in purple. There is also a cool looking skull in the background! On the side art, you can see a strong pose with her scepter as she is ready to take on anything! Her bio reads:
Evil Sorceress of Castle Grayskull: Of all of Skeletor’s evil warriors, there is nobody he relies on more than Evil-Lyn. She was instrumental in his quest to destroy He-Man and steal the Power of Grayskull. For her service, Skeletor named her the new Sorceress of Castle Grayskull. This gift, however, comes with a curse. As Sorceress Evil-Lyn is bound to the castle making her its – and Skeletor’s – prisoner
New Eternia Stratos
Official images were also posted on Amazon’s New Eternia Stratos product page and is now on Target!
Box and Art Reveal
It is great to see another figure in package for this wave coming out in 2023! Stratos looks amazing in the box and we can’t wait for him to hit shelves!
The art show Stratos in a heroic pose showing off his classic red wings! We also see him a cool cosmic scene as he has his face mask on while clutching the Staff of Avion, which is
Masterverse He-Man and Skeletor Movie Figures
Special thanks to Roy Juarez for posting these images of Movie He-Man and Skeletor for your viewing pleasure!
Movie He-Man Official Images
New Official images for Movie He-Man we released today along with Preorders on Entertainment Earth and BBTS and now both Skeletor and He-Man are on Target. If you recall this figure was announced back on Aug 30th, and there were mixed reviews about He-Man’s face sculpt. Well, I have to say, that Mattel listened, and the new official releases include 2 new alternate head sculpts and they are vastly improved! It is great to see all of the weapons and accessories for this figure! He Man looks to share the original He-Man buck, rather than the new bulkier 40th Anniversary buck, which is a little disappointing. He-Man’s head sculpt got 2 new looks! He now comes with a new vintage style head, which looks to be an all new sculpt and new interpretation on his classic head sculpt! The alternate head is supposed to resemble his movie counterpart, Dolph Lundgren. The first images of this head were not very impressive, but now it looks like they have improved it. He comes with bronze-colored chest and shoulder armor with a brown wash, with a ton of wonderful detail He is even wearing bicep straps and a movie styled wrist bracer on his left wrist. He comes with several knife holsters, one on his waist and another on his ankle. He also has a sword holster on his back as well., but weirdly it goes thru his cape. There is also a short sword in a holster on his right hip. Movie He-Man is also wearing a very nice looking red soft goods cape with some nice gold trim detail pattern at the bottom.
It is great to see all of the weapons and accessories for this figure! He comes with his Havoc Staff, styled after the one that appeared in the movie, a soft goods cape, an extra layer that goes under his cape, and extra set of hands and the coolest accessory, the Cosmic Key!
The Havoc Staff is highly detailed and looks just like it appeared in the movie.
He also comes with a sword and looking at the pack out, he is deserving of a deluxe figure, but not by much! We feel like he could have been packed as a standard figure but it looks like he got the same treatment as She-Ra and just made deluxe by the skin (or bone) of his teeth!
UPDATE 8/31/2022: Box Art Revealed
Thanks to Manuel Caritas for revealing the box art for the forthcoming Masters of the Universe 1987 Movie figures! Here is what he wrote in his post:

Put the two pieces of art together can you get a really amazing cosmic scene that immortalizes the struggle between He-Man and Skeletor that was portrayed on the silver screen in 1987.
