Bubbles Are Carried Off By A Swiftwind

Since He-Man has Battle Cat, it’s only natural for She-Ra to have her trusty steed Swift Wind. But unlike He-Man, she had a bigger obstacle than a lack of stirrups. Needing a new She-Ra to sit on her winged unicorn, we were given the quarterly variant Bubble Power She-Ra. Would she sit? Does Swift Wind…

Thoughts On Mattel’s Reveals At Power Con

Power Con had a menagerie of new characters. Unfortunately, not being there gives one a perspective not found with the in-crowd seeing each new discovery with rose-colored glasses. I do enjoy the Masters of the Universe line as a whole, but I have come to the realization that the toys will never come out the…

Who Knew Spikor Would Be One MOTU’s Best?

Spikor is a very peripheral character for me. I never owned the original, nor was I even interested in the toy. This made his Classics figure a special surprise for me, given his blank slate status– beneath this spiny purple exterior is an interesting backstory, a unique specialty among the evil warriors, and just the…

Lions, Snakes, and The Horde Oh My….Pt 3

The Griffin rounds out the June offerings in a big way. He is Battle Cat’s body, with a new head, tail, bird-like hind feet, saddle, and upper body piece that houses Swift Wind’s flying wings. With quite a bit of lead time in front of them, fans lobbied for his wings to not be completely…

Lions, Snakes, and The Horde Oh My….Pt 2

With no definitive representation of Horde Prime’s appearance, the Four Horsemen were tasked with coming up with his new look, while using bucks, as previously done in the old line.

Lions, Snakes, and The Horde Oh My….Pt 1

For Masters of the Universe Classics, June has provided us with three first-time action figures for Snake Man-At-Arms, galactic overlord Horde Prime, and Beast-Man’s resilient griffin beasts. While the selection may be comprised of niche characters and variants with more reused tooling than we’d like, I personally enjoy the spirit of these characters and the…

The Horde Grows By One and a Half

September gives us two new Masters of the Universe Classics figures, and both of them come from the same faction! The Horde has been building nicely with Hordak, Grizzlor, and Force Captain Catra. The energy-draining Leech and the quarterly variant Hurricane Hordak join them. Each come with their own pluses and minuses, but let’s see…

Ask Mattel 8/31/2012: Mattel’s Thoughts On The “Close Call” 2013 Subscriptions

Just before this Labor Day weekend, Mattel is back with a new round of answers!  This time out, Mattel shares what they took away from the close call with their 2013 subscriptions… plus we get some details on MOTUC’s Jitsu and the Watchmen Club Black Freighter line!

MOTU Vykron Is A Dressed-Up Mess

Vykron, being a dress-up set memorializing the original pitch for what became Masters of the Universe, was a very appropriate and ambitious set for the 30th anniversary. The tank armor, the viking garb, and space man attire can each be applied to a base body to create unique looks for a new character: Vykron, the…

Club Eternia Offers Sneak Peek At Granamyr Box Art

The centerpiece of this year’s Masters of the Universe Classics collection gets some all-new box art, which Mattel shared out to their Club Eternia subscribers.

Mattel’s 2013 Subscription Clubs Are Open

I figured I should let you know “officially” that Mattel’s 2013 Subscription services are open for sale, but only until August 6th.  That gives you just about two weeks to decide if you’re in for another year of Masters of the Universe or Club Infinite Earths… or Matty’s new Watchmen series.
