New Eternia Beast Man Orange Color Fixed as Mattel Corrects Production Run

New Eternia Beast Man Coloring is fixed as Mattel corrects production run! Check out Beast Man’s killer orange bod!

We were all super excited a couple weeks ago to get the New Eternia Beast Man. But if any of you are like me, when I opened my package, I was a bit disappointed in that the color of the torso was an off brown color and did not match the rest of his body. Not only that, but the brown wash all over his arms and legs was very heavy, and made it look like Beasty had been rolling around in the mud, probably the same mud puddle that Anniversary He-Man wandered out of…LOL.. Anyways, we tried a home remedy to correct that problem by trying to lighten his torso as we covered in our How to Fix New Eternia Masterverse Beast Man Chest Color article. But still, even though that helped, it wasn’t quite right. We also covered him in an in-depth Hands on Review, where you can see what he looked like.

Well in a surprise move by Mattel, looks like Mattel heard us! I am very happy to say that they must have noticed their factory misstep and made a production correction mid-way thru, because guess what folks, today I found several Beast Man’s sitting on the shelf at my local Target and Mattel has corrected the color of his entire body!

This new production run is seen on the left, and on the right is the previous production run. You can really see the difference as the new Beast Man’s color looks much more orange and even. Where the previous Beast Man has a much heavier wash on his arms and legs, and his torso looks a much browner color and does not match the rest of his body. In a welcome change, Mattel did the right thing here and corrected the issue!

This new production run is seen on the left, and on the right is the previous production run. Again from his back side, you can really see the difference as the new Beast Man’s color looks much more orange and even. The previous Beast Man has a much heavier wash on his arms and legs, especially at the joints. And again because of the heavy texture of his fur on his back, his torso looks much browner and does not match the rest of his body.

Even with Beast Man’s armor on, you can still notice the torso discoloration of the previous production run see on the right. The new production run on the left looks so much better and we can’t be more pleased! Now he looks much more like the Beast Man we all know and love!

He also looks much better in his New Eternia look. Take a look below on the left you can see how he looks in his new production run. Even though his heavy furry armor covers a lot of his torso, you can see he still looks much better!

Promotional Images

These are the promotional images of Beast Man we got pre-production and you can see we were all expecting a more classic orange colored Beast Man. As you can see from the promotional images below, the New Eternia Beast Man was never meant to have such a heavy brown wash on him. A little bit of a wash is nice and gives him some richness and brings out his details, but a roll in the mud was never what Mattel intended and I think wasn’t what the fans wanted either. So, I am happy to report that Mattel has made this correction mid-production. It’s great when they listen to the fans! They may not be great at communicating what they are doing too well, but in this case, they took action and corrected course! Way to go Mattel! Now only if you can make some more Wun-Dars to make the fans happy, that would be great!
