The origins (pun intended) of this version of He-Man comes from the MYP Masters of the Universe cartoon and toy line from 2002 and Mattel really paid homage to that style of figure in an Origins buck! In 2002, Mattel launched a new Masters of the Universe toy line most commonly referred to today as the MOTU 200x or MOTU Modern Series. The figure sculpts featured the talented designs by the Four Horsemen who remained faithful to the original Masters of the Universe toy line. The figure design was a modern version of the classic figure that featured sharp angles and sculpts that were unique to each figure. Sadly, due to lack of interest in the toy line and lower-than-expected ratings for the show itself, this series was cancelled midway through its second season. I was surprised to see figure revealed as part of the mid March MOTU figure’fest and Mattel did an amazing job with the attention to detail on this figure. The 200x sculpts back in 2002 were an intentional departure from the stalky MOTU buck we grew up with and were designed with the animation series in mind.
You can see the nods to the original 200x figure with the coloring of the chest harness, loan cloth, and the weapons and accessories. Even the Power Sword, shield, and axe were designed in this style paint apps, making them look a little plain. That said, there is nothing plain about the Power Sword and I am so thrilled that we are getting the 200x version of the sword is it intricately detailed. You can also see that the axe is also highly detailed but a small paint app would bring that out more as some of the more finer details get lost in an all gray sculpt. The shield also has extra rivets on it like the MYP design, making this set of weapons unique to this figure, which is rare since Mattel could have simply reused prior He-Man weapons but they went above and beyond.
He-Man’s harness has a leathery look and feel to it and the unique chest armor piece is right in the middle with red and gold paint accents. One aspect that I have always loved about He-Man’s chest armor is that he can stow his Power Sword in the slot in the back. The belt that is integrated into the loin cloth has a studded look and feel and it also pays homage to the MYP figure. He also has a brand new head sculpt with a more wind swept look to his hair, completing the 200x look.

Also announced during Mattel’s week of reveals in mid March 2022 is the 200x version of Skeletor! Following suit with the 200x He-Man from the MYP series comes 200x Skeletor based on the Masters of the Universe 200x of Skeletor (or He-Man and the Masters of the Universe modern series) figure ! Sculpting a brand new Power Sword, head sculpt, loin and chest armor, and shin armor, the Origins version of 200x Skeletor is off the charts amazing! The closed hood design in the head sculpt mirrors that of the MYP version but is brighter and matches the MOTU Origins style quite well! Like the 200x He-Man, the weapons could have used a different paint app to bring out the details and it would have been great if they had spit the sword down the middle but it does carry the same spirit as the original sword from 2002. The Havoc Staff is reused from previous versions of Skeletor but if they were going all out with these figures, which they appear to do, a different style Havoc Staff would have been the icing on the cake! That said, they still look great and compliment the figure nicely!
The devil is in the details with this 200x Skeletor and there are several new parts that were sculpted, setting it apart from other versions of Skeletor, which is a welcomed change. First, the head sculpt is brand new and you see less of his face as the hood wraps all the way around his chin and is much thicker at the chin. I love the chest armor as it weaves in the purple and blacks that are found in the MYP version but in Origins style. The red jewel in the middle of the armor ties in nicely with the unique shin armor that is also a new piece for this figure. I love the way the knee is disconnected from the armor, which gives him a unique look! Skeletor is no stranger to custom loin armor for that down there protection and there are several aspects to his armor that make it stand out. First, the middle piece protecting the goods hangs to his knees and his thighs are flanked with armored protection that have a very cool design to it!
Unlike He-Man, Skeletor does not have a place to stow his Power Sword but I get that they would have had to make the holder so large that it would have detracted from the look of the figure. All in all, this version of Skeletor is amazing and I am so happy they are venturing into to the 200x line becuase this opens the to many other amazing 200x figures they could produce in the Origins style buck!

The Horde is getting an infusion of one more villain to the ranks with the single carded Mantenna! I was sure this would be a deluxe figure but I stand corrected seeing him in package. The original Mantenna from the vintage line had 4 faux legs, which were actually two legs stuck together but the Origins figure went all out with creating a true four legged sculpt with individual articulation in each leg.
The blues are a lot darker in the Origins version, which is consistent with the paint apps for the Origins line. He has an action feature on his head that makes his eyes bulge out, which is very well hidden and baked into the head. He is a really cookey character but he’ll look great next to the Power Con 2021 Filmation style Hordak so you can relive your favorite scenes from the She-Ra Princess of Power cartoon. Now all we need is a trap door for Hordak to send poor Mantenna down and you can reenact your favorite Princess of Power moments!
Thanks to yo_tengo_el_poder, Pig-Head MOTU Origins official images were revealed today to expand the Rulers of the Sun line for Origins plus we have an updated theory on the rumored Rulers of the Sun 3-Pack!

Pig-Head Masters of the Universe Origins style card has the 40th Anniversary sticker in the upper left, which looks like it will be the standard moving forward this year. Also, the figure has the Rulers of the Sun logo, like the single carded standard release of Sun-Man! Seeing that Pig-Head is a single card figure, this does throw into question an earlier leak where we thought Pig-Head would be part of a Rulers of Sun 3-Pack but it’s always fun to speculate and guess and we are always open to updates based on official reveals like this one.
In addition to the carded reveal, we got more detailed images of the actual figure of the Wicked Enemy of Sun Man. The figure is more or less a direct translation of the vintage figure (see below) but with much brighter colors. The pinks, greens, and blues definitely pop more on this figure and more more loud, which goes along with the other MOTU Origins figures.
Pig-Head is the nemesis of the Rulers of the Sun gang. Where Skeletor is He-Man’s counter-part, so is Pig-Head to Sun-Man. So, I find it odd that Digitino is the next Rulers of the Sun figure to be named as part of Wave 9. You would think Mattel would pair these two up so that kids had their evil nemesis to play against. Pig Head has an interesting green skin color, boar like tusks protruding from his mouth and a big pig-like snout for a nose. He wears a teal-colored helmet with pink horns, pink wrist bracers, teal colored chest, burgundy chest strap and matching burgundy belt with red accents. His shorts are interesting as they are of a light-yellow color but look like they have a scaly texture, unlike the loin cloths of the rest of the MOTU gang. He wears teal colored boots with pink furry tops. Pig-Head is wheedling a teal spiked mace and pink and teal colored shield. Pig-Head is a very interesting character in the Rulers of the Sun, as he is the only non-humanoid beast-like creature in the group. I think this is great to bring variety to the group, as MOTU fans as fond of creature like characters, so he fits in nicely! Again, he too matches his vintage counter-part in classic origins fashion.

Leech was first released by Mattel in 1984 and was featured on the Filmation She-Ra Princess of Power cartoon. The vintage Leech action figure included the same suction feature as the Origins figure but had a lever in the back to activate his action suction feature. This Origins version of Leech is an amazing tribute to the vintage Leech, but totally upgraded! He features the same big red Horde symbol on his chest, suction cup faces, hands and feet and all!
Leech’s vintage style head is a perfect tribute to the 1980’s vintage Leech figure! With the classic suction cup on the front of his face, you can stick Leech to all of your favorite smooth surfaces! The details on Leech’s chest and torso are just absolutely beautiful! The reddish orange straps on his wrists are a perfect recreation of the vintage action figure. That bright red horde bat logo is the cherry on top of a perfect Leech Origins figure!

When Leech was first announced, one question we had was how the action feature would work? The yellow burst on the front of his packaging says, “Figure really sticks to smooth surfaces!” Well, now we can see Leech’s action feature in action!!! He really does stick to smooth surfaces! You can see his suction cups on his face, hands and feet have little tabs to help release him from his suctioned grip. I have just seen an in-hand review, by non other than Pixel Dan, and boy did Leech have an incredibly strong suction feature!
The official images for Leech looks absolutely spectacular! Leech comes packed with 2 head sculpts, the first that resembles the vintage style head and the second being his “MOTU” classics style head. The MOTU classics head, created by famous figure sculptors, the Four Horsemen, looks spectacular! Can’t wait to get this figure in hand!
Snout Spout Official Images
We finally get a bunch of official detailed photos of Snout Spout and he looks amazing! The Heroic Eternian Firefighter was first released by Mattel in 1985. Mattel did an excellent job on Snout Spouts design paying homage to his vintage counterpart, with a robotic elephant face, orange body red gloves, blue shorts and black boots. This version of Snout Spout comes with both a MOTU classics looking head and a vintage style head. The MOTU classics style head shown below looks to have an articulated snout that can stretch open and bend!
