Webstor MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection Card Art Teases Kittrina

Back in February 2024, we got word that Webstor will be coming to the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection! He was also revealed as part of the MOTU March Madness 2024 and put up for preorder! We speculated correctly that the pack-in for Webstor would be coming from ‘The Cat and the Spider’ Masters of the Universe Filmation episode. What was also cool about that the episode was that it also featured Kittrina, which we are hoping she makes it into the line!

Roy Juarez has posted a preview video of Webstor’s package and you can view it below:

Kittrina Tease

Kittrina is noted as being a member of the mysterious Cat Folk of Eternia and a trusted agent of their leader King Paw.

Kittrina was produced as an action figure for the Masters of the Universe Classics Club Grayskull line by Super7.

The MOTU Classics figure nailed her Filmation look and we are so excited that she is potentially coming to the Cartoon Collection.

Dubbed The Evil Master of Escape, Webstor was only featured in a handful of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation episodes and he also made a cameo, with Kobra Khan, in the She-Ra and the Princess of Power. As Mattel was introducing more figures to the line via the cartoon, the episode that featured Webstor aired close to his toy release in the 1980’s. Many of the beloved characters, like Moss Man and others, have only appeared in a handful of episodes, it made narrowing down the show Mattel might pull from to pay homage to easier as he was prominently featured as a main villain! Let’s get to know Webstor or, as Skeletor affectionately calls him, bug face! So let’s take a look at Webstor, what he might look like, and what his potential episode specific accessory might be!

The Cat and Spider Filmation Episode

Lucky for us, Webstor was only featured in one He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation episode called The Cat and The Spider. According to the Wiki Grayskull, “During an archaeology expedition, Prince Adam and Melaktha discover the Temple of the Cat, confirming stories of an ancient race of “Cat Folk” on Eternia. However, there is no information about what became of the Cat Folk, and so Melaktha and Adam hope to learn more by studying the temple. Little do they realize they are being watched by one of the Cat Folk, who are not as extinct as they suspect.

As the pair explore the ruins, Melaktha is impressed by the Cat Folk’s artistic ability. He is so enthralled by the stone carvings that he walks right into a trap door, and knocked out in the fall. When Adam sees that Melaktha has fallen into a chamber where the walls are closing in, he wastes no time in becoming He-Man to rescue the royal archaeologist.

When Melaktha comes around, he is outside the temple with He-Man, who offers to finish exploring the temple in his place. With his superhuman strength, He-Man has little difficulty defeating the traps throughout the temple. He finds an altar with the Grimalkin statue atop it. After defeating a monster guarding the altar, He-Man retrieves the statue and, as Adam, takes it back to Melaktha, who decides to study it at the Royal Palace.

The feline spy witnesses this, and returns to his kingdom to report to King Paw. Upon learning of the theft of the Grimalkin, King Paw angrily summons Kittrina, his most effective (if least reverent) agent, to retrieve the statue. Back at the palace, Melaktha and Adam show off the statue to Orko, Teela, and Cringer. Melaktha speculates that the artifact might well possess some evil power. This gains the attention of Skeletor, who observes the activity from Snake Mountain. Deciding that any evil power should be his, he summons Webstor to steal the Grimalkin for himself.

That night at the palace, Kittrina easily breaks in to recover the statue, but finds herself evenly matched when Teela answers the alarms. Webstor takes advantage of the struggle to take the statue for himself. Adam and Cringer wake up and become He-Man and Battle Cat, but are too late to stop Webstor from stealing a Wind Raider to make his escape. He-Man whistles for the Talon Fighter so that they can pursue him.

Meanwhile, Kittrina explains her own intrusion to King Randor, Queen Marlena, Orko, and Teela. She explains that she was not stealing the Grimalkin because it already belonged to her people. According to Kittrina, the statue contains a demon that could spell doom for everyone, and Melaktha vouches for her story after doing some research. After communicating with He-Man, Teela and Kittrina decide to go to Snake Mountain themselves.

Before Skeletor can determine how to use the statue for evil purposes, He-Man and Battle Cat arrive to take it from him. Skeletor manages to trap Battle Cat and, with help from Webstor, subdues He-Man. The villains detect Teela and Kittrina approaching in a Wind Raider, and shoot it out of the sky. Teela is stunned in the crash, and so Kittrina has to continue on without her. However, Battle Cat frees himself from his trap and joins up with Kittrina.”

Webstor Accessory Speculation

A cool accessory Webstor could come with would be the Grimalkin statue that is featured in the episode.

Webstor Vintage Figure

Webstor was introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1984. His action figure was packaged with a backpack and wire, along which his figure could be slid when the accompanying grappling hook was fixed to a surface.

Webstor can produce thick spiderweb from his palms and shoot from, which he uses for swinging around or ensnaring opponents with. Despite his bulky appearance, he is incredibly agile when moving around fighting in close range.
