More On The Masters Of The Universe Origins Castle Grayskull

by Jay Cochran
September 17, 2020
Earlier this week we got our first indication that Mattel was planning on releasing a Masters of the Universe Origins Castle Grayskull playset. This was thanks to a listing that showed up on a Florida based distributor website that had it listed with a November release date. At that time I found the listing strange, mainly because we had been previously told by Mattel that Walmart would be the only place to carry Masters of the Universe Origins this year.

Shortly after that listing was reported, a very low res image surfaced online that was said to show the interior of the new playset.



I still haven't been able to confirm the legitimacy of this image from any sources I know to be reliable, but for the sake of argument I am going to say it is legit.

Since the other day, we have since gotten indications of the set showing up in the Target store computers. I also did some checking with few of those sources I find reliable. They have confirmed for me that in fact there is a Origins Grayskull playset coming from Mattel. I am told the price will range from $75-$80, and it should be available anywhere that chooses to carry it. In other words it's not going to be a store exclusive.

As for when it will be released, that still seems up in the air. I've heard anywhere from November to late December or early January. My guess large retail outlets like Target and maybe Amazon will get it before the smaller etailers.

If the image above is legit and final, I would say Mattel has taken their original Castle Grayskull playset (not to be confused with the more modern and larger Classics one) and made some slight alterations to it. It's also still unclear if the Sorceress figure seen in the image will be included, but my guess is that it will since the other vehicles we have seen for this line have included figures.

I don't know when Mattel is going to get around to officially announcing this thing, but I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't show up someplace like Amazon before to long. As we reported earlier this morning, Amazon is already taking pre-orders for Origins figures and listing them with a November 15th release date. Since this morning they added Beast Man and there is a place holder for Trap Jaw as well. Check out links to the figures currently listed on Amazon below.

Man-At-Arms

Evil-Lynn

Teela

Scare-Glow

Man-E-Faces

Orko - Is being sold by the Amazon Global Store right now

Beast Man

Trap Jaw - Currently listed as unavailable but will want to keep an eye on

I'm still sore about the 200x line so I've admired these from afar but...just...can't.  Zodac is a sore spot because I liked the Zodak version waaaayyyyy better. If they do a Snake Armor He-man, Hordak (a good evil looking  one), Dekker, or even Despara I'll bite.

There is a great Despara in the Mattycollector line and some evil looking Hordaks too.

Zodac It's my favorite here. A couple of months ago this kind of news would have made my day happy but I already dropped the ball very soon with this line and I don't even know if there are any plans for any re-stock of the first two waves.

Yeah same man, I only own 4 of these figures, I really wish I could get them all, but it's still looking bleak, I am hoping by January once these are not exclusives to Wal-Mart I can finally get my hands on the figures I'm missing.

 

I hear you.  It will have to be Ebay for me.

Shown below via sb_toyz are new in-hand images for Mattel's third wave of Masters of the Universe Origins figures which includes She-Ra, Mer-Man, Zodac and Roboto. These have started showing up on Walmart shelves in Canada.

I like these, except I'm not too keen on the soft goods on She Ra.

This is too good to pass up. Wonderful gift! Very nostalgic for someone I know. ??
