July 23, 2023 UPDATE: New Adventures Skeletor Hitting Target Stores
Thanks to beta.pax for the heads up and posting images of New Adventures Masterverse Skeletor on the shelf where he belongs at Target! Like we reported earlier in the month, NA Masterverse Skeletor’s set date was July 31, 2023 so it’s no surprise we are seeing him early.
NA Skeletor DPCI / TCIN
The New Adventures Masterverse Skeletor is the only remaining figure from the March 2023 reveals where the release date has eluded us until today! With some sleuthing at the local Target store, we discovered the DPCI, TCIN, and set date for the New Adventures Masterverse Skeletor. If you scan this figure up in Target’s systems, the code name for this figure is “Masters of the Universe Masterverse Custom Figure” which we are guessing they labeled it like this to avoid people like us leaking this info but we outsmarted them. We fully expect this figure to drop for Target’s Summer Geek out and maybe they will just release it for sale, versus putting the figure up for preorder) as it is odd that they have not put this figure up for sale and chose to put NA Deluxe Masterverse Slush Head and New Eternia Whiplash up for preorder.
You can use the following details to locate New Adventures Masterverse Skeletor using the following codes:
- DPCI: 087-26-8834
- TCIN: 87846956
Release / Set Date
According to Target’s internal systems, the set date for New Adventures Skeletor is July 30, 2023, which is at the end of this month.
The Whole Shebang, a toy site based in the UK that put the MOTU Origins Moss Man has also put up New Adventures Masterverse Skeletor. We suspect that NA Skeletor will go up for preorder sometime during the Target Summer Geek Out as they put Masterverse New Eternia Whiplash and New Adventures Masterverse deluxe Slush Head up for preorder already. If you recall, the according to the TBHStore, we should be seeing the New Adventures Skeletor around July 2023! This figure has yet to go up for preorder but if this date is correct, we should be seeing him go up for preorder soon!

Box Art and Official Images
Roy Juarez keeps surprising us with these incredible box art reveals, and this morning we get yet another one! This one is one of my favorites, but has yet to go up for preorder, it is none other than the New Adventures Skeletor! The box and art for the New Adventures Skeletor was revealed today and he looks freakin incredible! But as Roy mentions in his Instagram post, he confirms all our suspicions that this is indeed a Target exclusive just like New Adventures He Man was! I never watched the New Adventures of He Man cartoon as a kid, but these new figures are so cool, I may have to go back and watch the whole thing! Roy Juarez keeps surprising us with Mattel’s art team package reveals! So let’s check out the incredible New Adventures Skeletor Masters of the Universe Masterverse Box Art Reveal!
Packaging and Art
New Adventures Skeletor comes back in the Masterverse window display box with the Masters of the Universe New Eternia branding on it.
On Roy Juarez’s Instagram post, he said ” Here’s a look at the packaging and artwork for the upcoming Masterverse New Adventures Skeletor, the Intergalactic Overlord of Evil (exclusive at Target)!”
Based on the cross sell, he should be landing with Wave 9 but we have yet to see him go up for sale anywhere.
Side Panel Art
On the side panel we can see New Adventures Skeletor standing powerfully with a red burst sky behind him in the background.
The details in the illustrations are out of this world (pun intended) and we see a reimagined look of Skeletor for the Masterverse line.
Rear Box Art
On the rear of the box we can see an amazing illustration of New Adventures Skeletor standing on a galactic planet, with a skull shaped planet in the sky behind him, and other moons and such in the sky, behind him.
Up close we can see Skeletor wielding his havoc staff with a cityscape in the background and an ominous moon that looks like Skeletor.
