All new 2012 MOTU mini comics!

Mattel: Jay Cochran - 2011.08.10
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of MOTU, through a special one-time grant from Mattel design, Mattel commissioned three all new Mini Comics from Dark Horse comics that will be packed in with the first three 2012 MOTU Quarterly Variant figures!

This all new mini series will feature a story by Scott “Toy Guru” Neitlich, script by Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash) art by Wellington Alves and covers by Eric Powell (The Goon).

The first issue is a “retelling” of the final vintage MOTU mini comic “The Powers of Grayskull pt 1”. As some fans know, originally this was a three-part comic that would have set up the 1987 line with He-Ro and Preternia. Alas, only part one ever shipped! As part of our 30th anniversary program we are "making it up to fans" and picking up the three-issue series and completing it for the first time. Part two and three will pick up the story and take it to new places and new battles never before seen! You are in for one wild ride!

The first issue will be packed in with Thunder Punch He-Man in March 2012. Issue 2 will come out in June with that month’s quarterly variant and will wrap up with issue 3 with the September quarterly variant. The comics will be packed out right behind the figure just like the vintage days!


Yet another great reason to purchase a Club Eternia subscription for 2012! The mini comics will come with both the sub and day-of-sale figures, but the best way to guarantee you get all the great figures and all three issues is to head over to Mattycollector.com and pick up a 2012 Club Eternia subscription (and you’ll get the exclusive Shadow Weaver and Preternia map too, only for subscribers!). Remember their will be slightly fewer "day of" sales in 2012 so the 2012 Club Eternia subscription is highly recommended to guarantee your figures.

Check out the cover and page one below! For the rest of the issue, you’ll need to wait for Thunderpunch He-Man our first quarterly variant figure in March!
