2019 Power-Con Mattel Masters Of The Universe: Origins Interview With Britt Shotts

by Jay Cochran
August 20, 2019
Pixel-Dan caught up with Mattel's Britt Shotts at this past weekends Power-Con convention to talk about whats coming for Masters of the Universe: Origins. Britt previously worked on the Jurassic World brand for Mattel but recently switched over to Masters.



The big take away's from the interview are that toys for the new movie will soon be going into production, and what we are seeing with Origins now is just the beginning. It's a new Renaissance for Masters of the Universe.

Also Trap Jaw and the three 5.5" Origins figures they teased at their panel which included Orko, Scareglow and Man-E-Faces could either be released in series 2 or 3 but they aren't saying which. Brit also promises lots of character variety in this line and lots of newness at retail as they plan to do something like 4 new refreshes or mixes of the assortments each year they do this line. The origins will be available in Fall 2020 at mass retail.

As someone who goes to PowerCon every year I have to say this was the best one theyve done so far. Much bigger show floor with more guests and vendors. Great reveals and enthusiasm from Mattel. Lots of media and entertainment announcements. And reveals for lines like Thundercats and TMNT that normally one would only expect to get at one of the big 3 events (SDCC, NYTF, and NYCC).

I have to agree with you I was not expecting how good PowerCon was this year.

Super7 brought it this year, Tmnt was brilliant with the retro weapons toy rack.

Even though I got the 2 complete setsof Mattels Thundercats it's a good chance for people to get who missed out the first time.

Because they did not followed what it was done in the original line...

By the way this new line is called origins...

Oh, really?. Tell me more...

Yeah, in the 80's, but in the motuc line the Horde was introduced earlier, if I remember correctly Hordak was released in the 2nd year.

I thinks it's too early in the line to introduce the Horse or She-ra... In the 80s they introduce those characters after the first ones were stablished...

Matty held a brief Q&A session during the Con and I found a little disapointing to know that they don't have any plans for Evil Horde and/or Snake Men figures at the moment, also no alternate hands in order the keep the price as low as possible, neither plans for playsets (I kinda understand the reason why) oh and if anyone was wondering no plans for She-Ra stuff yet and finally no many vehicles on this line, that includes the 3 dinosaurs from the PoG line-up that were on the top of my wishlist, anyway... I'm still in.
