Reflecting On Strobo: A First Look At The 2013 MOTU Traveling Con Exclusive

strobo-featAs in years past, Mattel is offering a “Traveling” convention exclusive Masters of the Universe figure in 2013– cosmic enforcer Strobo.  However, they tried something new this year, offering a (very) limited number of Strobo figures to Early Access Club Eternia subscribers… months before he makes his Con debut.

The Eternos Palace Is Complete With Filmation King Randor

Masters of the Universe Classics are winding down for 2012, and they backloaded the year with quite a motley crew. November’s entries are King Randor in his Filmation Monarch robes, Man-At-Arms’ 200X trainer Dekker, and the final entry in the 30th Anniversary, Castle Grayskullman!
