Entertainment Earth just dropped the Masterverse & MOTU Origins Preorder, which are Wave 11 Masterverse & Wave 15 MOTU Origins assortments
The Masters of the Universe dropped more figures for preorder in the wee hours of morning! We noticed a mystery drop on Entertainment Earth’s Drop Zone scheduled for the minute when October 2023 ends and November 2023 begins! It turns out it was the Masterverse Wave 11 Assortment of figures, which are Sorceress Teela, Skeletek, New Eternia Trap Jaw and New Eternia Man-At-Arms. They also dropped the MOTU Origins Wave 15 Assortment, which contains He-Man x 2, Beast Man, and MOTU Origins Fan Favorite Mer-Man.
Masterverse Wave 11
Sorceress Teela Official Images
She looks gorgeous and features a brand new design! She comes with her white staff and extra hands!
Sorceress Teela, who made her first appearance in the Masters of the Universe Revelation Netflix series. She looks gorgeous and features a brand new design! She comes with her white staff and extra hands!
Her cape has a layered look to it and she is clad in whites, golds, and blues.
Masters of the Universe Revelation subtly sets up a plot thread from the original Masters of the Universe animated series that was never fully developed; that the warrior woman Teela had a great destiny before her and was fated to become the next Sorceress of Castle Grayskull. We can’t wait to see what the MOTU Revolution Netflix series is like so we can continue her story arc.
Skeletek Skeletor Official Images
He has oversized shoulder armor, a Rams’ head gauntlet, and he looks like he’s a mishmash of his former self and the Horde!
During the climatic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, He-Man proclaimed “It’s not about us” which is a huge hint that things are changing accord to the lore, which is what the Revelation Series is all about! Despite Kevin Smith saying that the series was a continuation of the Filmation cartoon from the 80’s, the Revelation Series proves that it is rewriting MOTU lore and people aren’t going to continually stay in the same positions they’ve been in. Skeletor is left in a world he doesn’t quite understand. Angry that he didn’t help to defeat He-Man, Skeletor seeks out the only people he can rely on. He busts into the Motherboard cult and tries to usurp power from Tri-Klops and Trap Jaw, but this leads to Skeletor angrily attacks the Motherboard statue, attempting to blow it to pieces as Tri-Klops and Trap Jaw refuse to align with him.
Skeletor is more machine now than man. Twisted and evil. The quote from Star Wars works in this instance but I would rewrite to say “He’s more machine now than bone. Twisted and evil.”
The Motherboard infection looks great on the Evil Lord of Destruction and the integration of the rams head into his right ar
Man-At-Arms Official Images
This New Eternia Man-At-Arms is arguable one of the best versions, next to the MOTU Classics version of course! There are so many ways to display this figure with the extra head sculpts, helmets, and weapons and accessories that you might need to buy two of these figures! The New Eternia versions of the Masterverse figures are the best in the line and this version of Man-At-Arms hits all of the high points!
The overall figure sculpt is one of the best Man-At-Arms designs we’ve seen since the MOTU Classics era! The overall look of the Masterverse figures are more streamlined and Mattel keeps outdoing themselves with each release! This version of Man-At-Arms is so versatile and you can change up the look with a switch of the helmet or, if you choose, have no helmet at all. It’s cool to see MAA’s face without his helmet and the green balaclava is very detailed and even has space for his ears and, by the looks of it. it appears to be mechanically enhanced! Man-At-Arms comes with an extra set of fisted hands, a mace, a ball and chain mace attachment, and an extra head sculpt sans mustache, and a classic style helmet.
Man-At-Arm’s armor is so vibrant and it’s the perfect shade of orange that compliments his green suit (if that really is a body suit)! The new loin cloth is a great addition to the figure as it separates this figure from the rest.
The mace has a lighter orange, almost metallic tinge to it while the ball is a nice orange that closely matches MAA’s armor. The ball and chain attachment can fit on to the end of the handle by popping off the solid ball at the top of the mace. I am not too fond of the execution of the ball and chain accessory as it looks odd if it’s not in the down position.

New Eternia Trap Jaw
New Eternia Trap Jaw looks stunning and he really harkens back to the MOTU Classics era. The head sculpt is out of the world and they did an amazing job!

MOTU Origins Wave 15
As we saw in the Mattel Booth at San Diego Comic Con 2023, the brand new cardbacks were revealed that feature a beautiful purple and blue sky background, with Castle Grayskull in the foreground.
This new sculpt of He-Man looks fabulous! You can see that they gave him an all new head sculpt from the previous release from the He-Man Anniversary 4 pack.
This new Cartoon Collection He-Man looks like he stepped right out of your CRT tv and into your living room, bringing to life the our heroic warrior! His cartoon inspired head sculpt, simplistic chest armor sculpt, and simplified waist and boots really help to give him an animated look.
He features the new MOTU Cartoon Collection buck that stands a little bit taller and lankier that the MOTU Origins figures that came before them. Also you will notice the new quads design on his legs, that make him look very ripped!

The orange color on Beast Man plays so well off of of the vibrant colors of the Cartoon Collection! We also saw Beast Man on display at SDCC 2023!
He comes with a hover ray that was featured in the episode Dragon Invasion. He comes with his whip as well. He has all new chest and shoulder armor. He stands more upright and is a little more slender than the v1 Beast Man.

Mer-Man honors classic MOTU traditions while incorporating modernized design details. The figure comes with a mini Masters of the Universe comic book on retro-style packaging.
He is an ocean warlord who lurks in the depths of the sea awaiting Skeletor’s orders and his telepathic abilities that allow him to control other sea creatures, and making him nearly invincible underwater.
