Digital Card Art Reveal
The new figures have incredible new packaging with a Filmation inspired card back! You can see the classic animated Castle Grayskull on the cardback that comes straight out of the opening sequence of the Filmation Cartoon! It also has a new “Cartoon Collection” sticker in the Filmation rainbow logo style. The back of the card back features new card art as well as a cross sell featuring the other Cartoon Collection figures in these first two waves. The great thing about these new card backs besides the cool cross sell and card art, they tell you what episode specific accessory the figure comes with as well as which Filmation cartoon episode it came from. Trap Jaw comes on the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection Card and he posed with his mouth wide open! His hook is attached to his right arm and he looks amazing as the pinks play really well off the of the blues and purples of the card.
Here we can see a beautiful illustration of the Cartoon Collection Trap Jaw illustrating a scene from the Filmation episode ” Double Edged Sword”, where Trap Jaw eats a piece of Eternium from the of Sands of Time to become as powerful as He-Man. You can also see Mer-Man coming out of the water behind him, giving us another look at the second new figure from the cross sell.
The glowing effects that Fetch applied to Trap Jaw are so amazing and makes the art look super cool!
Double Edge Sword Filmation Episode
The Eternium accessory that comes comes packed with the Cartoon Collection Trap Jaw was inspired by the MOTU Filmation episode Double Edge Sword. According to the Wiki Grayskull, “A young boy, Chad, who was under the care of his disabled grandfather, dreamt of joining the Royal Guard and enjoying the glory of battle, until an attack by the Evil Warriors taught him the true cost of war. There was a mad rush by both the good and bad guys to collect the energy source Eternium in the Sands of Time. Both sides invaded a neutral desert country for a rare mineral power supply. The young boy was attacked by a Spidasaur, a sea monster summoned by Mer-Man (despite being at the desert, there was a small lake, but seemingly deep enough for the Spidasaur), and He-Man came to the rescue. Trap Jaw then decided to eat some eternium to become as powerful as He-Man and convinced Mer-Man to help him get the eternium, promising to turn two thirds of Eternia into an ocean.
His strength greatly amplified by the Eternium, Trap Jaw rumbled with He-Man, but his newfound powers wore off and he went in search for more. Chad’s pet Burbie ingested the last piece instead, but it proved to be poisonous to the small creature, so He-Man took it to the Sorceress to help the pet get better. In the meantime, Chad’s grandfather told him that was he formerly a soldier, but once used his Scatter Ray to scare some attacking orcs and his reckless shots made a mountain crumble on him, and that’s what caused his legs to be paralyzed.

Trap Jaw is packed with his hook hand on his right arm! It would be cool if Mattel packed Trap Jaw with a different attachment, like how they packed Mini Comic Man-E-Faces with different faces.
Here we can see Trap Jaw in different poses and it looks like he only one attachment that can fit on his belt at the time. This is great because Trap Jaw didn’t carry any attachments on his belt in the Filmation cartoon so it looks like he is getting an upgrade!
Trap Jaw looks great as he sports his Laser Cannon and we can see him holding Eternium, which is the most powerful substance on the planet Eternia. Just a little piece can act as a source of energy for the city of Eternos for a long time. It’s almost impossible to find and in one of the episodes, if Trap Jaw eats Eternium, he can become as strong as He-Man, if not stronger, but the substance is poisonous for other beings.

Trap Jaw’s cybernetic enhancements have given him an array of interchangeable attachments and weapons. He has a mechanical jaw that can clamp down on objects with great force, hence his name. Additionally, his arm can be replaced with different tools, such as a claw, hook, or laser blaster, making him a formidable opponent in battle.
