Thanks to canaldosrosmineiros we have more MOTU Origins Leaks regarding Wave 15, Exclusives, and possible wave assortment changes
Our friends canaldosrosmineiros have dropped a whopper of a leak that includes some possible MOTU Origins Wave Assortment changes and a list of possible upcoming exclusives! MOTU is dying? Oh heck no! Let’s take a look at the juicy details that will have our wallets shouting out in pain! The image is a bit grainy so we sharpened it up a little but you can clearly make out more 200x, Rulers of the Sun, past Power Con Exclusives made in Origins style, and MOTU favorites that have been on fan’s most wanted lists for a long time!

Wave 14 Possible Assortment Changes
It was only 2 days ago, on February 16, 2023, where we revealed that the MOTU Origins Wave 14 assortment, which included Spikor, Sssqueeze, Serpent Claw Man-At-Arms, and the Eternian Guard Infiltrator would be part of that wave along with the deluxe figures of Dragon Blaster Skeletor and Snake Face. Our friends canaldosrosmineiros have a another option that would replace the Eternian Guard Inflitrator and that is the one and only Sy-Klone, a fan favorite for sure! Either way, Wave 14 is shaping up to be a stellar wave let’s take a look at the possibilities! They have also called out Dragon Blaster Skeletor and Snake Face as possibly moving into the Wave 14 assortment.
The possibility of fans getting Sy-Klone in the Origins line will make everyone salivate. Sy-Klone has been teased on MOTU Card art 3 times already and he is a member of the Heroic Warriors. A blue-skinned cyborg with the ability to spin at super-speed and generate a whirlwind, he is also able to spin different parts of his body individually and was dubbed the ‘Heroic fist-flinging tornado’.
We’ve seen Sy-Klone on a couple different card art montages, including Jitzu’s where if you were not paying attention to who was flying in from the side, you would definitely miss him. I think He-Man can stand on his own defending against Jitzu’s chopping fist but Sy-Klone is there for backup! We also saw him in the most recent release of the Flying Fists He-Man card art where he is taking an offensive pose raising his shield high up in the air.
The other possibilities for a Wave 14 assortment is what we reported back on February 16, 2023, and you can also read our update to the Wave 13 assortment, which you can catch up on below:
Rumored MOTU Origins Wave 15
The rumored Wave 15 MOTU Origins figures include Holographo, from the Rulers of the Sun line, Snake Man-At Arms, Terroar, and Mini-Comic Man-E-Faces (which is reported coming as the 5th figure in the Wave 13 assortment (which you can read about above. Let’s take a closer look at what this wave would look like if this came to reality!
Holographo, the Futuristic Scientist, is another unproduced Rulers of the Sun figure and will make a fanastic addition to the line!
We’ve seen a couple variants of Man-At-Arms already in the Origins line and this one comes from the Powers of Grayskull lore and the 2nd ultimate battle ground where King Hiss put a Snake Spell on Man at Arm and it’s cool to tie this into King Hiss as he is rumored to come out in January 2023! The Classics line did a major resculpt of the face and the figure looks amazing, which would translate nicely to a figure they could do for Origins. Just create another snake head sculpt for Origins and you have a recipe for a great figure. If they wanted to go the extra mile, they could put some snake skin detail on him like they did the 200x version of Snake Teela!
Hypno’s card back teases Terroar, which is awesome as he is a mashup of several produced MOTU Origins figures! If you recall Terroar was never released in the vintage line but he was supposed to be released as part of the Powers of Grayskull line 1988, which got canceled. He was, however, part of a 3 Pack for the MOTU Classics Line. This is the second time now that we can have gotten Terroar teased on a MOTU Origins cardback, so this is a great indicator that we may be getting him and, given that Lulu Berlu has put it up on their website, we can pretty much guarantee this one!
Here you can see what a version of Terror would look like in MOTU Origins form, with this custom figure below. As you can see, Terror is completely a mash up of existing parts. You can see they use Whiplash’s head, Trap Jaw’s right arm and shoulder, Rattlor’s torso, left arm and tail, and Mosquitor’s legs and boots. Again this is a CUSTOM image below, but you can see what it could look like.
Below you can see some unreleased Terroar card art that was planned for the late 1980’s unreleased Powers of Grayskull line. Here it looks like Terroar is battling Slamurai on one image and Plasmar on the next.
If you recall, we saw Terroar in multiple locations of the Camo Khan Card art. Illustrated standing by King Hiss’ throne and also coming thru a portal with Camo Khan, Lord Gr’asp & Terroar along with Reptilax, an unproduced Classics concept, look ready to attack. If you haven’t checked out our Camo Khan card art tease article, you can check it out here: MOTU-origins-camo-khan-card-art-teases (toyhabits.com)
Terroar, and Lord Gr’Asp were part of a 2017 PowerCon exclusive3 pack that included Terroar, Plasmar & Lord Gr’Asp.
We also recently discovered Terroar listed online and you can read more about our discovery of Terroar on Lulu Berlu below:
Mini Comic Man-Faces

Figures for Future Waves
We were not sure how to interpret the graphic provided by canaldosrosmineiros so we are not sure what wave these might belong to so we are lumping them all together for earmarking for future waves.
Kikto is another unproduced Rulers of the Sun figure and he is the “expert kick boxer.” It stands to reason that Mattel will be creating all of the figures from the Rulers of the Sun line and you can see Kikto below!
200x Trap Jaw
In a fun article we did back in June 2022, we thought it would be cool to throw together some 200x figures concepts that would be amazing to see in the MOTU Origins line and Trap Jaw was on that list! Trap Jaw’s appearance in the MYP animated is much more intimidating and menacing. Keeping in line with his character portrayal from the 1980’s Filmation cartoon, he is still portrayed as another of Skeletor’s bumbling henchman. The MYP series did a great job of harkening back to the Filmation cartoon as one episode featured Trap Jaw trying to obtain the mineral Eternium. We finally get the back stroy on Trap Jaw from the minicomic which shows him to have once been a blue-skinned criminal named Kronis. Challening Skeletor’s right to command, Kronis built up an army and tried to overthrow Skeletor, but, in the battle, Kronis was badly injured. Seeing that Kronis could still be of use, Skeletor ordered Tri-Klops to repair him, turning him into the Trap Jaw we know today.
The 200x version of Trap Jaw is one of the more outstanding figures from the line! Covered with scars and stitches, this figure does a great job at showing his backstory as the damage he suffered undergoing repairs from Tri-Klops is shown all over his body. Appearing more robot than and less like an organic being, Trap Jaw’s left hand and the tops of his thighs appear to be mechanical and his shoulder armor takes on a more studded, battle damaged look. The vintage figure, however, has a very simple robotic arm and his updated arm is oversized and huge, covered with wires, armor plating, and all sorts of technical goodies. The headsculpt is frightening as it looks like it was actually lopped off in battle. His skin has a more zombie, post apocalyptic texture to it with a shade of deep lime green to complete the look. We could really see Mattel making this version of Trap Jaw fantastic in an Origins sculpt given the highly detailed and oversized robotic arm, which would set him apart from the original Origins figure.
Trap Jaw 200x Origins Concept
This concept is a 3d printed head sculpt that captures Trap Jaw’s look from the 200x figure line and this render is amazing! You can actually see mechanical pistons that would move his jaw and it looks like he has a metal nose. The only other retooling Mattel would need to do is match the paint app of the original 200x figure and also create a more mechanized and oversized arm attachments in the Origins scale. This would be amazing and we really hope Mattel does this for Origins.
Stonedar is the leader of the Rock People. The character appeared late in the 1980s Masters of the Universe toy line, and as such appears in relatively few stories, with little consistency. He is often accompanied by his young friend Rokkon. The pair were like transforming MOTU figures but instead turning into something cool, they turned into rocks, which reminds me of that part in the movie Big where a toy company produces a Transformer that turns into a building!
Rokkon is a youth of the Rock People, and the frequent companion of his mentor Stonedar. The character appeared late in the 1980s Masters of the Universe toy line, and as such appears in relatively few stories, with little consistency.
Exclusives (Mattel Creations or Retail)
There is only one figure that is earmarked for a Mattel Creations and one as a Walmart exclusive and the rest we are we are unsure about so we will just throw them all together!
Moss-Man (Walmart Exclusive)
Moss Man appeared at the Mattel 40th Anniversary Press and Influencer even back in October 2022! MOTU Origins fans have been asking for him for the longest time, and now our requests have been answered but with a slight twist. We are finally getting a freakin FLOCKED MOSS MAN in the MOTU Origins line and we personally can not be more excited!! After all this time, I have been waiting for Moss Man to join the Origins line, and in the Fall of 2023. When this was announced at the presser event, it was announced that he will be a wait for it….. Walmart exclusive! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Now I know everyone heart just sank when I said that, but unfortunately The Lord of the Forests pine smelling friend will only be available through Walmart.
Moss Man will be a deluxe figure give that he will be fully flocked, come with an alternate LOP Style Beast Man head. Mossy’s head looks to be based on the Beast Man head, but he is much more friendlier looking with a big smile on his face looking very Filmation like! They nailed it with this head sculpt! He will also include his vintage style club, yellow Beast Man armor as an homage to those that used to put this weapons pack armor on their Mossy’s, and also a brown Pig Head club as well.

Lord Gr’asp is featured on the back of the Slamurai card art. So let’s take a closer look at who Lord Gr’asp is and where else he was teased! What is cool about this figure, if you know the history, is that he was one of several unnamed characters planned for the 1988 wave of the Masters of the Universe toy line, the character appeared on unreleased Mattel cardback artwork illustrated by Errol McCarthy. In 2017, the character was given the name Lord Gr’Asp and released as part of a three-pack with Terroar and Plasmar.Lord Gr’Asp was part of a 2017 PowerCon exclusive3 pack that included Terroar, Plasmar & Lord Gr’Asp.
Lord Gr’asps bio reads: One of the Unnamed One’s elite generals, Lord Gr’Asp used his vile cunning to orchestrate his master’s escape from the Nameless Dimension. He first made an alliance with Horde Prime and persuaded him to destroy the Kaydex Crystal, damaging the barrier that kept the Unnamed One trapped. With a legion of Horde-armored Snake Troopers at his command, Gr’Asp then convinced Hordak and King Hssss to join forces on Eternia. Gr’Asp and his warriors escaped defeat during the Second Ultimate Battleground, but later joined forces with Lady Slither to reconquer Eternia after the Unnamed One’s demise. While Gr’Asp is a master of strategy, he prefers to lurk in the shadows and snatch unsuspecting victims in his Captor Claw rather than engage in a fair fight. While he claims to admire the stealth and skill of enemies like Slamurai and Zodak, he also viciously exploits the naïveté of younger opponents like Strobo and Prince Dare. Lord Gr’Asp hopes to resurrect both the Horde Empire and the Snake Men, but only to help him steal the knowledge of Grayskull for himself.
Lord Gr’asp also had some unreleased card back art from the unreleased Powers of Grayskull line. Here again it looks like he is battling Plasmar.
Lord Gr’asp & Terroar can seen in multiple locations of the Camo Khan Card art. Illustrated standing by King Hiss’ throne and also coming thru a portal with Camo Khan, Lord Gr’asp & Terroar along with Reptilax, an unproduced Classics concept, look ready to attack.
Other Possible Exclusives
In the graphic provided by canaldosrosmineiros, there was a question mark for the following figures, which included Two-Bad, Extendar, and Modulok. We’ve covered the possibily of Modulok being a Mattel Creations exclusive before but it is great to see him show up on the list. We’ve also covered the possibility of Two Bad and Extendar coming to the line as they have been teased on prior card art, along with Modulok.
Stronox’s Two-Bad MOTU Origins custom is outstanding and really brings to life the melding of Tuvar (in blue) and Baddrah (in purple)! The deep blue color of Tuvar reminds me of how Webstor was colored in his Origins version. You can also see the lighter blues mixed with the deeper blues that adds a lot of depth in the paint app, which is something that missing the from the Origins line in general.
Baddrah is painted in a deep purple with lighter purple accents that bring out the scaly skin of the figure. The boots on each of the characters are also unique, which, in the vintage version, is a deviation as they were both the same but I love how Stronox made each half of this figure unique and went above and beyond the vintage design to make it his own!
This is the 2nd time that Two-Bad has been teased on MOTU Origins card art! Two-Bad is a two-headed Evil Warrior who is basically two different beings sharing the same body. In some ways he is like siamese twins, although both halves of his body are very different-looking creatures who appear to be from entirely different species. His right half is a blue creature, while his left half is a purple, scaly creature with an eyebrow-like yellow band on his forehead. His two heads have the habit of continuously arguing with one another. Two-Bad first appeared on the Battlefield Warriors box art as he looks like he is in pursuit of He-Man.
He recently appeared on the card art of Mini Comic Roboto so hopefully that means the figure is not too far off in the distant future.
Roboto may have strength of steel, but it’s his cybernetically enhanced heart that makes him one of Eternia’s bravest (swipe to see full artwork)

Two-Bad is introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1985. Originally marketed as the “double-headed evil strategist” it is implied he is a master of strategy due to being two warriors in one, but his main trait in all story media is that his two heads have a habit of endlessly arguing with each other, meaning he has always generally been used for comic relief.
Extendar was also a very unique figure and looked nothing like previous figures that were released in the line. Taking on more of a knight appearance, this figure came out very late in the line and was not featured in the cartoon but he does have a mini comic backstoryAccording to the Wiki Grayskull:
Occasionally referred to in comics as the ‘Tower of Power’, Extendar was introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1986, at a stage when the toy line was breaking away from its roots in pure fantasy, and introducing more robotic and mechanical characters. Given that the accompanying cartoon series had been cancelled by the time his toy reached the market, he never appears in animated form. However, he features prominently in various comics and storybooks, and is introduced in the Mattel mini-comic “The Warrior Machine”. This comic showcases him as a friend of Prince Adam who is an ordinary knight, but yearns for special powers of his own after witnessing the skills of the Horde warrior Dragstor. Hordak subsequently grants his wish and subjects him to scientific experiments which turn him into a mechanical cyborg warrior with the power of extension. Invincible at full height, he is set upon He-Man, but manages to throw off Hordak’s curse and join the Heroic Warriors. Subsequent mini-comics portray him as one of the most powerful members of his ranks.Extendar
Extendar’s gimmick was pretty cool! He could grow larger by pulling on his neck, arms, and legs
Special thanks for Roy Juarez for posting the concept art penned by the one and only Axel Gimenez as this teases a new MOTU Origins figure to add to your Horde Army! Modulok as been teased on the card and box art in several places in the MOTU Origins line so it makes sense that they start building the parts needed for to actually produce this figure. In the sketch, which is typical for design sheets, it is called out that Frog Monger is using Modulok torso, arms, and legs! This does not mean that a Modulok figure for the Masters of the Universe Origins line is a guarantee but it makes it more likely as Matte’s bread and butter for the line is part reuse so it is fun to imagine!
Roy states in his Instagram post: “Sketches created during the creative process of Frog Monger for @mattelcreations . (Swipe through to see the design sheet for Frog Monger drawn by Axel Giménez). Bonus insight about Frog Monger: When we originally fleshed him out in The Rise of Evil 2-Pack artwork. We visualized him a smaller figure like Modulok. Later in the final design, he was changed to reuse the regular sized MOTU body to maintain the mix & match feature. An absolutely ‘ribbiting’ figure! 🐸”
Modulok Card and Box Art Teases
As we covered in our Masters of the Universe Origins Teased Figures From Card Art article, Modulok has already appeared on several card back artwork. A gaggle of evil Horde henchman appear on the Sorceress’ card art as well as Hordak’s, including Mantenna, Modulok, Leech, and Grizzlor, make up the bulk of this section. Since we have now seen Modulok on 2 card back artworks and the trademark has recently been renewed, we can probably make this one a given to come to the Origins line in the near future!
Modulok MOTU Origins Tease and Trademark Renewal
Modulok is another very gimmicky MOTU Character. To sweeten the possibility, we discovered that his trademark was renewed on 03/25/2021. Shortly after his figure was release in 1985, Modulok appears on the toy line’s accompanying cartoon series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Filmation. Consisting of 22 Body parts and a 2-part laser gun, Modulok was the first of its kind for the MOTU line! Coined ” Evil Beast of a thousand Bodies”, this Ultimate Transforming Creature was a member of the Evil Horde. Although the Evil Horde are used as the main villains Filmation’s spin-off series, She-Ra Princess of Power, rather than He-Man, Modulok is given the unique honor of making his debut on He-Man instead. Halfway through the first season of, She-Ra: Modulok is incorporated into the She-Ra series, the only character from either show to be transferred permanently from one to the other. This occurs in the episode “Gateway to Trouble” in which Modulok builds a device for Skeletor which can open a portal to Etheria to transport his whole army to the planet. This character is interesting because we recently got the reveal for a 4 legged Mantenna, and that new 4 legged sculpt has set the stage for perhaps how they can also pull off Modulok in the Origins style.
