The MEGA Masters of the Universe Power Sword, seen in person by Jay from GeekDadLife at Toy Fair Germany, has gone up for preorder and is an Amazon Exclusive! The official description reads: “Defend Eternia from Skeletor and his evil forces with this collector’s edition of the Power Sword. Measuring 30.63-inches in length, this collectible building set replicates the mystical object that transforms Prince Adam into He-Man. By the Power of Grayskull. I have the Power.” The set is already up for preorder on Amazon with an August 2023 delivery date!
The box style for the MEGA Power Sword is much different than the packaging we’ve seen from previous MEGA sets but are thinking this is the inner box.
The sword, measuring a little over 30 inches long, is a great representation of the iconic blade of He-Man in “brick” form. There are some matte and shiny blocks to give it some variation in color and depth.
The single stand is an odd choice as the hilt and crossguard are left to sit out exposed.
but the stand is branded with He-Man’s mug on it and it a very simple stand in the classic Castle Grayskull colors.
Getting a close up look at the hilt and crossgaurd, it has some nice girth to it but you would not want to cosplay with this one and battle it out with Skelly’s havoc staff as you’d end up with a big mess!
Getting a peak under the hood of the Power Sword, it’s great to see the different colored bricks as the Havoc staff was a pain to put together as all of the pieces were purple.
MEGA Power Sword Concept
Since we didn’t have official images yet, we love to draw inspiration from the customizing community and Orion Pax has provide a blueprint and, our professional opinion, inspiration for Mattel’s MOTU MEGA line! His work is amazing and you can see from the pic of Castle Grayskull on his website. It would be AMAZING if Mattel came close to designing something as beautifully constructed and thought out as Orion Pax’s designs! We doubt that Mattel would go as far as making a stand for the Power Sword but this stand is a great idea as the Havoc Staff needed a device that a guitar would sit on for the wall in order to display it. The colored wrap on the hilt is such a great idea and we love the two different heights for the stand so it sits at an angle. The sword shape is spot on we love the depth and dimension in the design.
The bricks of the Power Sword sit on different plains, giving it a 3D look. Also, there are options for your build, like using different colors to simulate a sheen on the sword. For example, in the image below, the top of the sword has metallic looking bricks, which gives it a really unique look and is a cool effect.
Here is a close up of the hilt and crossguard design and it looks absolutely stunning! The handle has some heft to it and is a great length and it appears you can place both hour hands around it.

MEGA Havoc Staff
Mega Construx Masters of the Universe Havoc Staff
If you have not purchased the MEGA Havoc Staff, we highly recommend it! It is an easy build (just took a couple hours) and is easily one of the greatest pieces in the MOTU MEGA Collection, next to Snake Mountain and Castle Grayskull of course! One of the stand out sets from Power Con 2021 is Skeletor’s Havoc Staff and this was an impressive piece so see in person! Due to the length of the staff, I needed to make a spot of the wall but that should be no problem! Here is a short video so you can get a sense of the size and scale:
