Snake Men Infiltrator MOTU Origins Card Art Teases Eternos Palace and Queen Marlena

Two days after we discovered the MOTU Origins Wave 14 packagingRoy Juarez fires the next salvo and reveals the Snake Men Infiltrator card art. This is a long shot but this card art teases Eternos Palace Playset again!

Snake Men Infiltrator

The Eternan Guard Infiltrator is renamed the Snake Men Infiltrator and his subheading reads “Slithering Spy in Disguise.” This figure is basically a reuse of the Eternian Royal guard with a snake face under the helmet. He includes the halberd and a silver colored snake staff.

In a very cool scene that teases the Eternos Palace in the background, the Snake Men Infiltrators are ready to…ummmm…infiiltrate??? They are and I am sure they will slip past Serpent Claw Man-At-Arms and 200x Queen Marlena!

Eternos Palace Playset Tease:

One of the most famous settings of all Eternia during the 1980’s Filmation cartoon was the Eternian Royal Palace. This is where King Randor and Queen Marlena lived to rule over the kingdom, and Orko wreaked havoc with his always disastrous magic tricks.

This setting however was one of the main locations in all of He-Man lore to never get produced into a playset. There was a concept however by the MOTU classics team, that never came to fruition. Pictured below, you can see the elaborate playset with its multiple platforms with different areas of the exterior of the palace. A landing pad for the Wind Raider, grand staircase for Princess Adora to come down, multiple platforms to place your Royal Guards, a cave to park the Road Ripper and even a working elevator. Yes, this would have been so grand, had Mattel produced it.

This is not the first time we got the Eternos Palace teased to us in the MOTU Origins line, we first say it teased on the Royal Guard Rear package Card back Artwork. Not all hope is lost, because the MOTU Origins line did give us an army builder set with the Royal Eternian Guard deluxe figure package. And you need somewhere for your guard to watch over, so with that we get a hint at what looks like the Eternos Palace on the package artwork. If you looked quickly, you would have missed it, but there it is, in all its glory! The palace stands as a backdrop to the battle scene going on in the foreground. Let’s hope this is a sign that we might get a Palace some day!

Also, thanks to our Crew Member Grrrraffe, for reminding us that on the Masters of the Universe Twitter account, this image below was posted on April 29,3021 of the Eternos Palace. Can this be another sign of something to come in the future?

Queen Marlena

We also got a tease for 200X Queen Marlena seen standing behind Serpant Claw Man At Arms. She is wheelding a sword and looking fierce and ready for battle!
