MOTU Origins Wave 13
King Randor (200x)
King Randor looks amazing as he is set off in the Rise of the Snake Men cardback with his armor and mechanical leg from the Masters of the Universe MYP animated series. You can also see the 200x logo, which is a real treat!

The Snake Trooper looks exactly like how we thought he would look! Mattel has reused the Horde Trooper body and has sculpted a new Snake Head! This will definitely be one of the more sought after army builders!

This figure looks amazing and so well executed! The skin is the perfect shade of green and the snake paint app looks fantastic! It’s interesting that she does not come with the 200x sticker on the front of the card as she was also introduced in the MYP MOTU 200x animated series.
Snake Teela Preorder on Collector Bay
You can preorder the Snake Teela on the Collector Bay website:
Slamurai is just what we thought he would be as he is a repaint of Ninjor! It’s amazing to see another heroic warrior in the mix to fend off the Snake Men.

Mini Comic Man-E-Faces
Mini Comic Man-E-Faces is the 5th character to join Wave 13, just like Duplico joined Wave 12. Charlie_5.5 has acquired what appears to be a prototype of a future MOTU Origins Mini Comic Man-E-Faces and posted the photos on his IG page (shown in blue and white)! We also came across a listing in Amazon’s database that confirms that confirms mini comic Man-E-Faces is coming to Origins. The MOTU Origins line is producing certain figures in mini comic form so it is not out of the question that they would do something similar for Man-E-Faces. Here is what he had to say:
Interesting find, this First/Test shot figure of Origins Man-E-Faces has different faces from the released version. The sculpts are more detailed and have the faces MEF had early in The Ordeal of Man-E-Faces mini comic, pre Robot face/form. It’s possible this was a discarded idea, or this could be a future release, I hope it’s the latter 🤞🤞Charlie_5.5

Dragon Blaster Skeletor
Dragon Blaster Skeletor makes sense to be a deluxe figure for the next Wave 12, as only the single release figures have been revealed, but only time will tell. The vintage Dragon Blaster Skeletor action figure was released back in 1985 as a part of wave 4. Leader of the Evil Warriors, Skelly included his dreadful dragon with the paralyzing spray perched on his shoulder!

We already covered the teases for Snake Face in More Snake Men coming to Origins in 2023! – (toyhabits.com) and MOTU Origins Wave 11 Rise of the Snake Men Card Art Teases (toyhabits.com) Unveiled during the CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS live stream last year, they revealed the first of the Snake Men coming to Origins in 2023 and they were totally right! They had also revealed the additional Snake Men – King Hiss, Snake Face and Sssqueeze were also coming to Origins later in 2023! Please note, that this new wave of Snake Men have not yet been confirmed by Mattel nor any official images released, but our friends at @canaldosrosmineiros were right about the first wave of Snake Men, She-Ra and Beast Man Masterverse teases, so there is a really good chance we get these Snake Men figures!

Eternian Guard Infiltrator (Snake Eternian Palace Guard)
We believe that the Eternian Guard Infiltrator will be similar to the Masters of the Universe Classics version that uses the snake head! This would be very easy for Mattel to make as they have already designed the Eternian Palace Guard in the Origins line. This figure was also seen at the German Toy Fair and, reported by Jay from Geek Dad Life, as the palace guard with the snake head and that the figure looked to be in prototype form.

Sssqueeze has got to be the most unusual of the Snake Men, with his large snake like wrapping arms! Released by Mattel in 1987, Sssqueeze with bright lime green skin color and large wrapping arms was a blast for kids to play with! His arms were made of a flexible rubber with a wire wrapping around inside that allowed you to pose him in fun squeezing positions. Watch out He-Man or your gonna get the SSSQUEEZE!! Just like the other Snake Men, this figure too was a totally new sculpt. Squeeze did include the spring-loaded waste and was wearing purple chest armor with the green Snake Men logo. He came with an extra-long purple snake pet. Sssqueeze was also found on a leaked Amazon product page so it is great to finally see what wave he will be in.

Serpent Claw Man-At-Arms (200x)
The 200x line was known for some pretty cool sculpts and concepts and Serpent Claw Man-At-Arms is going to be a great addition to the Snake Men line. We would love to see his oversized armor and his claw attachment as a weapon! This figure would be another easy one to make and would require some extra armor and his accessory.

Spikor is one of the most anticipated MOTU Origins figures! One of the last holdouts of Skeletor’s henchmen, Spikor’s head and torso are completely covered in razor-sharp spikes. It was not clear whether the spikes are a natural part of his body or some kind of special armor, until the bio for his 2012 figure confirmed it is an armor magically fused to his body. In place of his left hand is a trident, which can extend and, in some media, fires a laser beam. Spikor was introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1985. His action figure’s feature is his spring-action waist, which propelled his trident to shoot out of its socket when his torso sprang back. In an Amazon leaked list that showed up in their database, it looks like Spikor is coming to the line for Wave 14.

Rumored MOTU Origins Wave 15
According to 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.

Point Dread and the Talon Fighter
Jay from Geek Dad Life went above and beyond to capture verbal details of the upcoming MOTU Origins Talon Fighter and Point Dread from Toy Fair Germany so we are in his debt and super grateful for the opportunity to share this info with you (with Jay’s permission of course). We are indebted to them for giving us permission to post this news and if you have not subscribed to their YouTube Channel, they are amazing so please do so! Here is what we know about the Talon Fighter and Point Dread thus far:
- The canopy does have a window that is tinted and made of dark gray plastic
- Controls are similar to the Wind Raider and seats two figures
- The blue satellite dish was present plus an alternate silver attachment that almost took up the top half of Point Dread
- Point Dread attaches to the top of the castle via pegs and it had an additional peg hole.
- Castle Grayskull can handle both Point Dread and the Wind Raider on top
Special thanks to the one and only Mega Jay Retro and My Buddy’s Customs for alerting us that the Mattel EMEA posted a short video on their LinkedIn page from Toy Fair Germany in Nuremberg and deep within this video was a teaser for the new updated MOTU Origins Snake Mountain and you can see a glimpse of the Talon Fighter! In the images below, you can clearly see the beak of the Talon Fighter next to the Woman’s elbow! You can see the orangey yellow beak and red eye painted on the Talon Fighter’s head! It’s real folks and it’s coming to the Origins line!! Super exciting stuff!!! Here is an up close zoomed in shot and you can get a look at the red beady eyes! We can’t wait to see the full Talon Fighter revealed (and Point Dread) so this will have to tide us over until then.
Talon Fighter and Point Dread History
The Talon Fighter and Point Dread has always been a fan favorite, and one of my personal favorites I must say! I always loved how you can seat He-man and one of his friends in the Eagle shaped plane and always loved the bright orange and blue color scheme that made it look so cool! I thought that the radar dish on top was a cool feature so that He-Man can communicate with his friends, because back then, they didn’t have cell phones! But besides looking cool, the Talon Fighter and Point Dread always had a mysterious feeling behind them, because of the mystical lore that is tied to their story. According to the Masters of the Universe Character Compendium Volume 1:
Mysterious Point Dread was a stone structure of magical might. A mystical location appearing on the face of Eternia every twenty years. The powerful 2 man Talon Fighter, rests atop it’s outpost. Skeletor once endangered all of Eternia by tapping into Point Dread’s power, but the Goddess spirited the entire structure away to Castle Grayskull, merging it with the mystic strongholdMasters of the Universe Character Compendium Volume 1 pg 589
