It was so exciting to see that sneak peak of Prince Adam and Cringer, and even more exciting to see all of Cringer!

Evil-Lyn-MOTU-Origins-Cartoon-Collection-Tease

Cringer is a green and orange tiger-like creature who hails from the planet Eternia. He is known for his timid and fearful nature, often displaying cowardly behavior. Cringer is depicted as Prince Adam’s pet and best friend, accompanying him on his adventures. In the animated series produced by Filmation, Cringer played a significant role as Prince Adam’s trusted confidant. He often provided comedic relief with his fearful antics, contrasting with the bravery of He-Man. Cringer was typically seen lounging around or hiding during dangerous situations until Prince Adam transformed into He-Man.

Prince Adam & Cringer filmation

Battle Cat Filmation History

For Filmation’s animated series Cringer and Battle Cat are one and the same. While Prince Adam holds aloft his sword and calls upon the power of Grayskull to turn himself into He-Man in a burst of energy, he turns the energy toward Cringer, directing some of the power to his friend until he grows and changes him into the mighty Battle Cat.

Evil-Lyn Cartoon Collection

Evil-Lyn looks like she is pulled right out of the Filmation cartoon as her outfit is painted in deep and light purples! She also comes with the Shaping Staff as her pack-in!

Shaping Staff

Paying homage to an ancient and powerful tool that Evil-Lyn and Beast Man found, she comes with the Shaping Staff! According to the Wiki Grayskull, “An ancient and powerful magical tool, the Staff was first discovered by Evil-Lyn and Beast Man within a cave in the Crystal Sea. Disguised as a traveling sorceress named Majestra, the pair of villains made their way into the Royal Palace, where the Staff was put to good use transforming Beast Man into a copy of King Randor, as well as the real king into a goat and Orko into a cricket. The Staff proved efficacious even against He-Man and his allies, turning Teela into a frog and He-Man himself into a golden statue. Skeletor and Evil-Lyn next assaulted Castle Grayskull, where the Staff turned the Sorceress partway into a defenseless tree. With the telepathic assistance of He-Man, however, the Sorceress used her own magic to overcome the Staff’s spell and free the hero. In the resulting battle, He-Man sliced the Staff in half, freeing all those it had changed. Evil-Lyn attempted to use the remaining half of the Staff, but all this accomplished was to turn her into a bizarre snake-like creature.”

Get ready for the Evil Warrior Goddess to grace the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection. Described by Skeletor as his “right hand of evil,” Evil-Lyn is both his greatest ally and worst enemy. According to an anonymous source, Evil-Lyn will be coming to the Cartoon Collection in 2024 and we will likely see her revealed during MOTU March Madness 2024. If you recall, last year during mid-March, the MOTU team dropped a ton of figures we saw in 2023. While a source as revealed that she is coming to the line, we are speculating as to what episode they will be payong homage to and what Filmation accessory she’ll be packed with. Also, given that the Cartoon Collection is pairing a Heroic Warrior with an Evil Warrior in each wave, only time will tell which figure Evil-Lyn will be paired with.

Evil-Lyn Filmation’s Appearance

The only female member of the Evil Warriors, she is an evil witch who aids Skeletor as his second-in-command with her powers of darkness. Her Filmation appearance colors were dark purple with blue accents. Her helmet is colored in black to match her cape and there are purple and blue tie-ins that match her outfit.

Webstor

Dubbed The Evil Master of Escape, Webstor was only featured in a handful of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation episodes and he also made a cameo, with Kobra Khan, in the She-Ra and the Princess of Power. As Mattel was introducing more figures to the line via the cartoon, the episode that featured Webstor aired close to his toy release in the 1980’s. Many of the beloved characters, like Moss Man and others, have only appeared in a handful of episodes, it made narrowing down the show Mattel might pull from to pay homage to easier as he was prominently featured as a main villain! Let’s get to know Webstor or, as Skeletor affectionately calls him, bug face! And the accessory we guessed, was correct! He comes packed with the cat artifact from the ” The Cat and Spider Filmation Episode”!

Webstor Accessory

Webstor comes with a very cool accessory that was featured in the ” The Cat and Spider Filmation Episode”. The Grimalkin statue that is featured in the episode. According to the Wiki Grayskull, “During an archaeology expedition, Prince Adam and Melaktha discover the Temple of the Cat, confirming stories of an ancient race of “Cat Folk” on Eternia. However, there is no information about what became of the Cat Folk, and so Melaktha and Adam hope to learn more by studying the temple. Little do they realize they are being watched by one of the Cat Folk, who are not as extinct as they suspect.

Webstor Vintage Figure

Webstor was introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1984. His action figure was packaged with a backpack and wire, along which his figure could be slid when the accompanying grappling hook was fixed to a surface.

Webstor can produce thick spiderweb from his palms and shoot from, which he uses for swinging around or ensnaring opponents with. Despite his bulky appearance, he is incredibly agile when moving around fighting in close range.

Spikor

The Untouchable Master of Evil Combat who has a trident for a left hand is joining the Evil Warriors Cartoon Collection crew! Having only appeared in 3 episodes of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation cartoon from the 1980’s, there was a good chance he was going to come packed with the ganing pieces from the “The Games” episode and we were right!

Spikor as seen in the FIlmation Cartoon Series below.

Spikor Masters of the Universe Filmation Cartoon Appearance 1

Spikor Filmation Episodes

Spikor appeared in 3 episodes of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation cartoon:

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Spikor-The-Games-Masters-of-the-Universe-Filmation-Episode-2

Having only appeared in a handful of Filmation episodes, Spikor is one of the coolest looking characters. According to the Wiki Grayskull, “Spikor was introduced into the cartoon series by Filmation shortly after his figure was released. While it is standard for Skeletor’s henchmen to be portrayed as dim-witted and bumbling, Spikor is portrayed as undoubtedly the most stupid and useless of them all. He is given a stilted, almost robotic voice – frequently altering in tone and emphasizing every second syllable as if singing – and an somewhat childlike personality. It is quite probable that this was intentional on Filmation’s part, in order to make his character more suitable for a children’s audience given his potentially frightening design.

Spikor Masters of the Universe Filmation Cartoon Appearance 2

The only episode to give him a main role is “The Games” in which he is infused with the villainous energy of all of Skeletor’s minions so that he can be chosen to represent the side of evil in a series of games set by aliens, but he is clearly a bizarre choice for the role given that he is shown to foul up repeatedly and is used as mere comic relief through the whole episode.”

The Games Filmation Episode

Given that Spikor’s role was very prominent and important in the Filmation Episode, The Games, we feel that his homage in the Cartoon Collection in this episode. The episode featured, the Bendari, an alien race from a world with no evil, come to Eternia wanting to pit the greatest representatives of good and evil against one other.

Spikor-The-Games-Masters-of-the-Universe-Filmation-Episode-4
Spikor-The-Games-Masters-of-the-Universe-Filmation-Episode-5

In this episode, the Bendarians select Fisto instead of He-Man, as Skeletor uses his latest invention the Evilgizer to increase the evil powers of Spikor, making him the Bendarian’s selection. It soon becomes apparent that evil will cheat, which is perfectly acceptable behavior for the villains!

Spikor Accessory

Spikor’s accessory is the yellow game piece he is going after as part of the games in the “The Games” Filmation Episode. This accessory was very easy to make as they have already made a sphere for the Cartoon Collection Mer-Man’s accessory. Mer-Man’s Pearl of Power could easily be repainted and cast as this yellow game piece.

Spikor and the Evil Henchman

With Spikor coming to the line, it will be cool to recreate this sceen with Mer-Man and Beast Man from The Games Episode!

Spikor Club Grayskull Super7 Figure

Released in 2018 as a Power-Con 2021 exclusive, Super7 created a Filmation accurate Spikor in 7″ scale. In only one of his three Filmation appearances showed Spikor with his trident.

Covered with spikes, this evil henchmen of Skeletor intimidates others with his physical appearance. This imposing villains also wields a frightening arm trident.

Clawful Cartoon Collection

Everyone’s favorite Evil Warrior Langostino, Clawful is coming to the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection. Known as the Warrior with the grip of evil, Clawful was one of Skeletor’s bumbling idiot henchmen that appeared in 7 episodes of the Filmation cartoon. He comes packed with the Horn of Evil from the Filmation epsiode “Dree Elle’s Return

Here we can see how Clawful appeared in the Filmation Cartoon Series

Vintage Toy Clawful

The version of Clawful was completely different than his vintage toy counterpart. The Filmation artists often were basing their work on concept sketches given to them by Mattel, so for Clawful, it seems that Mattel was going to go one way, and they ended up reusing a lot of parts from Buzz-Off to create the vintage action figure where the Filmation version already done. Below you can see what the 1984 Mattel version of Clawful looked like.

Clawful Club Grayskull Figure

Released in 2016, Super7, in it’s Club Grayskull line paid beautiful homage to his He-Man and Masters of the Universe Filmation appearance. He appeared just like he did in the cartoon series.

By taking a look at this Super7 version gave us have a very good idea of what the Clawful MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection figure might have looked like.

This highly articulated 7″ scale figure had the same POA as the rest of the MOTU Classics line and featured his cartoon look!

Clawful’s Filmation’s Appearance

Clawful’s look in the Filmation cartoon was totally different than the vintage toy. He had a much more lobster like red appearance. He had an orange chest armor and two equal sized claws, unlike the toy version which had a large claw and one small claw. Clawful appeared in 7 episodes of the Filmation cartoon.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Here we can see Clawful as he appeared in several different episodes of the FIlmation cartoon series.

Dree Elle’s Return Filmation Episode

Clawful’s accessory comes from the Dree Elle’s Return According to the Wiki Grayskull, “Dree Elle’s Return is the 53rd episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, written by Robby London and directed by Lou Kachivas. When the Horn of Evil is stolen from TrollaDree Elle returns to Eternia to warn Orko of the danger…although her little brother Yukkers may prove to be the greater threat.”

Origins

Vypor

Another character we got teased on the Eternia Box artwork was Vypor! That really cool looking red snake man that is reminiscent of the Viper tower of the Eternia playset. We recently covered that Vypor and Reptilax were coming to MOTU Origins line as fan channel exclusives! If you want to read more about it, you can check out our Reptilax & Vypor Coming to the MOTU Origins article. This one is supposed to be a Fan Channel Exclusive, like BBTS & EE! Preorders will be going live on March 27th or sooner, keep your eyes peeled to Toyhabits.com!

Here we can see his illustration on the MOTU Origins Eternia box art below.

MOTU-Origins-Eternia-Official-Box-art-Vypor-Tease

As designed in the MOTU Classics line, Vypor would reuse parts from Snake Face, Lord Dactus and Prahvus but he would need new armor, a new head and a new neck piece. What does make him a possibility is that his head sculpt is inspired by the Snake Tower from the Eternia playset, which comes out in 2024. Also as Mattel goes deeper into 200x , we could see Lord Dactus (who’s trademark was recently renewed by Mattel) and Prahvus as possible figures they could make out of Vypor., who are are both unique characters to that era of MOTU and strong contenders for figures for the MOTU Origins line.

Vypor MOTU Origins Concept

Here is a custom concept of Vypor, from the MOTU Classics line, created by the talented Orsogranito Granitebear Shop! You can see the nods to Viper Tower with the shape of the Snake Head , the chains, and the manta spy!

Reptilax

Reptilax is another figure Axel designed using a character who appeared in the vintage mini-comics. And he’s also appeared in Origins materials – both on Kol-Darr’s card and in the Camo Khan comic as well as the card art. However, other than parts from He-Man and King Hiss, he requires parts from Tuvar (Two Bad has been teased but yet to be released and Laser Light Skeletor plus he uses parts from Fang Man. This one is supposed to be a Fan Channel Exclusive, like BBTS & EE! Preorders will be going live on March 27th or sooner, keep your eyes peeled to Toyhabits.com!

Horde Trooper Prime

Horde Trooper Prime is a Red and Black Horde Trooper deluxe figure that includes a hover bot robot. Both Were teased on the Eternia Box art as seen below. He comes packed with recolored Trap Jaw accessories and is outfitted with a red cape.

This is a new figure tease, that we previously could not make out. There seems to be a Red Captain Horde Trooper running up steps of Eternia Tower. It’s a mix of the Red and Black Horde Troopers that came with the Power Con exclusive 4 pack, plus wearing a cape, so that tells you he is a Captain!

Red Captain Horde Trooper

Hover Robots

Thanks to keen eye of Toy Habits Crew Member, Grrrraffe he thinks he spies a red version of the Hover Robots. Hover Robots were metallic, robotic soldiers that served as minions for Skeletor and his Evil Warriors, much like the robotic Horde Troopers served Hordak and the Evil Horde as foot soldiers.A Hover Robot was apparently equipped with anti-gravity technology permitting it to fly. It could attack foes by grabbing them with its mechanical arms, ramming into them with shoulder tackles, using whirling blades, or shooting laser blasts.

Stranger Things Vecna Vs He-Man 2 Pack

Mattel does it again with another MOTU Stranger Things crossover 2 pack. This time it’s with Vecna vs. He-Man. Vecna is the main antagonist from the Fourth Season from the TV series Stranger Things. This version of He-Man is based on the v2 Vintage Head He-Man from the Origins line, but you will notice that he has a very pale and odd skin tone. Vecna comes with the same tentacles they used on the Mutated Moss Man from the Turtles of Grayskull deluxe figure. Vecna also includes a fiery staff. He-Man comes with his signature sword and axe, plus a kabuki mask shield that was sometimes photographed with the Turtles of Grayskull Beast Man figure.

According to Vecna | Stranger Things Wiki | Fandom:

A fearsome entity aligned with the Upside Down, Vecna had humble origins as the human Henry Creel. In childhood, Henry experienced a traumatic incident involving stolen government technology and a shadowy entity; after this, Henry’s family noticed a permanent shift in his personality.

The Collector

The Collector was featured as Skeletor’s ride in many Filmation Cartoon episodes! As you can see, it looks cartoon accurate and fits Skelly and 2 more of his Evil Henchman comfortably inside! We predicted this was going to be coming to the Origins line in out The Collector Vehicle Coming to MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection article.

The Collector

As we examine the new card for the Cartoon Collection, we are also seeing more figure teases and a vehicle would not be too far fetched an idea to ponder! The Collector is an aircraft used by Skeletor in his attacks upon the forces of good in Eternia. It resembles a skull with large pincers on each side of the hull. According to the MOTU Character Guide and World Compendium Volume 2:

The Collector Filmation Cartoon

“The Collector was Skeletor’s personal flying ship, named for its specially designed ability to “collect” enemies by turning them into stone and harvesting their life energy. Skeletor created the ship with the intention of using its abilities to resurrect the sleeping stone giant Colossor. Skeletor also used the Collector to infuse life into statues, turning them against He-Man and his allies. The Collector resembled a large dark-blue skull, with a yellow visor-like windshield where the eyes would be and two large, pincer-like claws that acted as energy weapons. The vessel also had a spine-like line of sharp fins along the top of its hull and a single door on the side. Although He-Man seemingly caused Skeletor and the Collector to crash and plunge into the bottomless gorge around Castle Grayskull, both Skeletor and his ship later returned. He no longer employed its life-force-draining capability and used it mainly as a simple attack craft and as transportation. The Collector returned briefly as Skeletor’s transport during an attack on the Royal Palace. He-Man easily broke through the ship’s hull to thwart the villain.”
