HE-MAN THROUGH THE YEARS
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, we couldn’t wait to launch this epic 4-Pack of 5.5” MOTU Origins figures. Each figure comes with 16 points of articulation and multiple exclusive VUM accessories to showcase each decade’s version of the mythic hero.
THE OG FILMATION HERO
Back in 1982, we got the original hero introduced into the Masters of the Universe Line. Based on his look of the 1983 Filmation Series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, He-Man is back with his fabulous secret powers and famous bowl-cut. He is packaged on the original red rock burst packaging with original new rear artwork .
THE NEW ADVENTURES HE-MAN
In the 1990s, we got a brand new galactic defender, with this newly designed space swashbuckling He-Man Galactic Protector. This version comes complete with his futuristic Power Sword and special golden colored shield. He comes on unique newly branded New Adventures style packaging with unique artwork on the rear of the cardback.
THE 200X DEFENDER
The next version of He-Man was again reinvented in the early 2000s, which took us back to Eternia in the 200x cartoon series by Mike Young Production. This is an upgraded version of the 200X He-Man we got in wave 9 as he is on a unique 200X MYP branded cardback and vac metalized chest piece, sword and shield.
A HERO FOR A NEW GENERATION
The latest version of He-Man brings Prince Adam into some new adventures in the CGI Netflix series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Price Adam discovers the Power of Grayskull and sets off on new adventures! This design embraces the new CGI animated style and blends it with the classic looks of an Origins figure!
WE’LL BE BACK AFTER THIS IMPORTANT PACKAGING
It seems that the packaging is where all the extra cha ching went into this set! By taking a look at the elaborate packaging, we can see where Mattel spent the money of this supped up set of Origins figures. The 4 pack comes with a brown outter shipping box with the huge 40th Anniversary logo sketched onto it. Mattel then designed the inner box as an Eternian display TV tube with ‘80s-style programming graphics. Inside the package, includes collectible, unique figure posters and outer cases mimicking a collection of TV guides from each decade. They even made sure to pack in easter eggs to hunt for teasers and never-before-seen art designs for each figure.

UPDATE 8/31/2022: Box Art Revealed
Thanks to Manuel Caritas for revealing the box art for the forthcoming Masters of the Universe 1987 Movie figures! Here is what he wrote in his post:
People of Eternia! As revealed yesterday on @masters #MOTUesday Masterverse welcomes in ‘87 Masters of the Universe film inspired He-Man and Skeletor! Here’s a special preview of some of the artwork the Heroic Artist Eamon O’Donoghue painted for the upcoming Masterverse packaging.Manuel Caritas
Put the two pieces of art together can you get a really amazing cosmic scene that immortalizes the struggle between He-Man and Skeletor that was portrayed on the silver screen in 1987.
August 30, 2022
Today we got a second dose of MOTUesdays as Mattel dropped a New Eternia Beastman vs. He-Man stop motion animation this morning, then hit us with another big drop! This time it was the Masterverse Versions of the 1987 Masters of the Universe: The Motion Picture He-Man and Skeletor Action figure reveals! These new figures are molded after Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langelia as Skeletor.
According to the Masters Instagram page:
At the center of the universe, at the border between the light and the dark, stands… New Masterverse figures! These figures feature authentic detailing, accurate weapon accessories, and packaging art all inspired by the 1987 Masters of the Universe film.Masters Of The Universe (@masters) • Instagram photos and videos
Dressed in their Motion Picture design outfits, these new figure designs feature some new sculpts. The He Man Figure looks to share the original He-Man buck, which Skeletor looks to be an all-new design. He-Man’s head sculpt is supposed to resemble his movie counterpart, Dolph Lundgren but it’s hard to tell how well they pulled this off by the angle of his head in the image. His bronze-colored chest and shoulder armor with a brown wash, have a lot of wonderful detail and he is even wearing bicep straps and a movie styled wrist bracer on his left wrist. He looks to have several knife holsters, one on his waist and another on his ankle. Then it looks like Movie He-Man has some sword holsters as well. There looks to be a short sword in a holster on his right hip. And it looks like he has a holster for his power sword on his back. Movie He-Man is also wearing a very nice looking red soft goods cape with some nice detail pattern at the bottom.
Movie Skeletor is very reminiscent of Frank Langelia’s look on the Motion Picture. His face has that melted skeleton look and his is wearing a black cloak and a longer armor looking over coat. He also includes dark purple shoulder armor and a matching-colored soft goods cape as well. He is wearing burgundy chest armor with a lot of detailed patterns in it and silver colored ankle guards. He has a ton of silver accents on his fingers, wrists and waist apron. His havoc staff is also designed to look like the Motion Picture version as well. Could this be the mystery figure that was listed on BBTS this week?
Masters of the Universe: The Motion Picture
Masters of the Universe the Movie came put in 1987 and instantly became a cult classic. He-Man was played by the great Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langelia as Skeletor. Somewhat of a departure from the classic He-Man story, Masters of the Universe: The Motion Picture has is place in cinema history and is still a fan favorite.
According to: Masters of the Universe (film) – Wikipedia
Masters of the Universe (stylized as Masters of the Universe: The Motion Picture) is a 1987 American superhero film directed by Gary Goddard, produced by Yoram Globus and by Menahem Golan and written by David Odell. The film stars Dolph Lundgren, Frank Langella, Jon Cypher, Chelsea Field, Billy Barty, Courteney Cox, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Meg Foster. It is based on the Mattel toy line of the same name and tells the story of two teenagers who meet He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe, and his friends, who arrive on Earth by chance from their home planet Eternia and go on a mission to save the universe from He-Man’s archenemy, Skeletor.
Masters of the Universe was released theatrically in the United States on August 7, 1987. It was a critical and commercial failure, grossing $17 million worldwide against a budget of $22 million, but is now regarded as a classic cult film.Masters of the Universe (film) – Wikipedia
