MOTUC Sold Out Figures To Return?!?

by Jay Cochran
January 30, 2009
Mattel has issued the following statement:

MOTUC fans,

While we sold out of He-Man in about the time we expected, Skeletor went really fast. We are still reviewing sales but if fan support continues it looks like we could have a real winner.

For those who missed out on the first three figures, we will indeed bring core characters back from time to time, but will change things up such as packaging, deco or even accessories to preserve the collectability of the first release. But hey, it can't be a MOTU line without He-Man and Skeletor. So in one fashion or another they will return down the road. (and don't forget Battle Armor, Terror Claws, New Adeventures, 200X etc. Lot of good ways to keep these guys around without the words spin or blade.)

I don't see them re-releasing King Greyskull especially in those numbers, limiting that character would definitely preserve his value.

But you never know, perhaps they will re-do him and put him on a normal card.

that is an exclusive its different

Mattel is going to produce figures from the 90s line, the new adventures? sounds good to me!

I want He-Man and Skelletor from that line.

This isn't new news.

but what is, is that 200X isn't off the table.

And that makes me happy.

For me, if I'd missed MOTUC He-Man/Skeletor, the next best thing would be a 200X-based variant, not Battle Armor or Terror Claws or something.

They already knew the demand would be there........should have increased the number released. I'll just have to wait for another chance which I hope is real soon for He-Man, and Skeletor.

This is a bummer.

I was fortunate to order and receive He-Man and Skeletor, but lost out on King Greyskull due to not knowing he was available for purchase.

I think they should release another 10,000 or so figures and then stop. I would not purchase a re-painted King Greyskull or alternate accessories like a ball and chain for example versus the power sword.

So I feel SOL reading that press release from Mattel.

This is not new news. Mattle has said before they will make He-Man and Skeletor avaliable again with different packaging or a repaint.

I commend them for addressing the issue, but as you say, this isn't news, and what they've announced isn't going to calm anyone down or convince too many people to go ahead and get on board with the line if they missed He-Man and Skeletor.

They should have given a time frame for the reappearance of He-Man and Skeletor, and they definitely shouldn't reference the variants like Battle Armor or Terror Claws as possible solutions. People want regular versions of He-Man and Skeletor, not the variants. Change the packaging, change the accessories, but give them the chance to get them each as they first appeared in the line with minimal/no changes to the paint ops.

I got my skeletor on ebay for $ 32.00 ! Not bad considering the other prices .....

I feel a great disturbance in the Force. As if hundreds of Ebay scalpers suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced...

@loll@

Well that would have been great however Battle Armor He-Man is not the same as regular He-Man. @grumpy@
