Shown below are some images Dave Clark posted over on the Masters of the Universe Origins Fans Facebook page showing off the Mattel Masters of the Universe Origins 5.5" Trap Jaw figure as well Teela without her headpiece on and the classic looking packaging being used with the recently announced Battle Cat. While not confirmed yet, we think Trap Jaw might be slated for wave 2.These are on display at PowerCon 2019.

Oh and I hope Matty doesn't take long to release the missing half of the Battle Ram vehicle.

I think in general I like this line. The added articulation is a plus, I think the size and price are good too. With how many characters are in MOTU, if you collect everything at that Classics 7" scale, you're gonna end up with a huge amount of space taken up by MOTU, so this scale makes it a little easier to justify getting more than just a few characters.I especially like that we can get steeds and vehicles at this scale for the same reasons. Less real estate and lower prices.

If these actually show up at retail in decent amounts, that'll be the real deal maker. I've only seen Classics at comic shops or cons, but being able to walk into a Walmart at buy MOTU figures will really add to my enjoyment of the line overall. If they rerelease these characters with the animation aesthetic, then I'd be all in, but as is I'll still pick some up if I can find them.

Since Ive yet to get my hands on any I cant say for sure, the size difference and overall style doesnt really bother me. I will say the headsculpts on some I find a little iffy like with Skeletor, that open mouth looks horrid and man at arms I think could use some improvement.

What are people even saying they'd want from the Classics line at this point? Repaints or rereleased figures? What's left to still make?

So what are people's thoughts on this new MOTU line? I've seen some people upset these are essentially replacing Classics at least for now. The thing to keep in mind though is Classics had a pretty full run and being this is a mass retail line it wouldn't make? sense for Mattel to re-release all those figures again. Most MOTU fans would already own the main characters and not want to buy them again thus hurting sales right off the bat which in turn could cause retailers to quit carrying them. These new figures are also significantly cheaper at $15 a pop which also makes is more appealing over Classics at retail. I wouldn't be surprised if either Super7 eventually continues with more Classics once this line get going or I could even see Mattel bringing them back to retail eventually in some way, perhaps when or if the movie gets released and MOTU fever is at an all-time high and the new line has been well established.

I definitely want to go in this line & pick up a bunch of characters that I couldn't get via Classics, especially Trap-Jaw & Scareglow.

I doubt this line really hurts classics, which already hasall characters done and redone. Updated vintage line is just great idea trying to bring together the best of both worlds. I am noteven Motu fanboy but I think this line is just great idea.

I don't think its about Origins hurting Classics but I think Classics is on hiatus because they don't want Classics hurting this new line or more specifically competing with it as they try to get it off the ground. I think Mattel went the route of this new line for Mass Retail as opposed to just bringing Classics to mass retail because most collectors already have the main characters for Classics which means they wouldnt likely buy them again at Walmart or Target, thus they wouldn't sell as well as a brand new line like this Origins one. The lower price point for these Origins figures I'm guessing also make them more appealing for mass retailers to carry them.
