Masters of the Universe Classics Man-E-Faces Poll Results

Mattel has released the following information on the Masters of the Universe Classics Man-E-Faces fan poll they started running right after Toy Fair, where they asked you to pick the final paint deco for the figure.

Recently, we ran a poll on the color of the upcoming Man-E-Faces figure. What had happened was that The Four Horsemen wanted to do Man-E-Faces with his mini-comic colors (flesh tone), Toy Guru wanted to do a full orange suit version, and a half-and-half version was shown at New York Toy Fair. Still, an agreement couldn’t be reached amongst the team so we figured we’d let the fans decide. And what did you choose?

525 (42%) Half-and-half deco as presented at Toy Fair
421 (34%) Original cross-sell colors (flesh-toned skin)
296 (24%) Original toy colors (orange colored jump suit)

So with 1,242 votes total, over 40% of you said that Man-E-Faces should be produced in a half-and-half deco. Looks like the Four Horsemen and Toy Guru will just have to wait to see if their preferred versions are ever offered ;)

If you missed the poll, here’s the back story:

“Man-E-Faces figure has a bit of a deco dilemma. The original cross-sell image of the toy on the back of the package showed Man-E-Faces with flesh-toned skin with blue armor. But the original toy didn't match this and shipped with orange skin, which most fans have interpreted over the years as an orange skintight suit (much like Man-At-Arms wears a green skintight suit).

We checked with some of the original Mattel designers and indeed the orange color on the vintage figure was intended to be flesh-toned, but back in the day, our partners in China had a hard time matching the tone and he came out orange!

Most fans have memories of him having an orange suit (or orange skin), especially when you consider his human face was flesh-toned! And even more so, later figures of Man-E-Faces (such as the 2002 figure) were done with purposeful orange skin/suit, so there is a lot of precedent for this color as well.”

You can look for Man-E-Faces in his half-and-half deco to arrive August 15th, so be sure to watch this spot for official images and any updates as it gets closer. A big “thank you” to everyone who voted in the poll and helped us to resolve this difficult dilemma!
