Mattel's 2019 SDCC Exclusive Masters Of The Universe Products Revealed (UPDATE)

by Jay Cochran
June 11, 2019
UPDATE: There has been some confusion on whether this set will be made available after the convention for those who don't attend. Folks will be able to pre-order these on the Mattel website in 6 days for pick up at the convention, however Mattel has not ruled out the possibility for offering them after the convention either. This is their official response to that question:

For now, this is exclusive to SDCC. If there is any leftover inventory after SDCC, we will announce it here on our social media pages where you can purchase it!

So time will tell.


With a new movie tentatively slated to be in the works from Sony for 2021 it would seem Mattel is starting to ramp up their Masters of the Universe stuff again with two new San Diego Comic Con exclusives for this year. Shown below via Nerdist we have a look at the new He-Man & Prince Adam action figure 2-Pack. The set includes He-Man and Prince Adam, both styled to look like the vintage versions of the characters. Prince Adam wears a removable blue vest which is based on is appearances in the old mini-comics, while He-Man has a removable knife accessory tucked into his boot which is based on early concept art. He also comes with a axe, shield and of course his Power Sword.

The figures feature 16 points of modern hinge-and-ball joint articulation and both figures have three sets of interchangeable hands and interchangeable heads based on the sculpts of the original toys. Colors and decorations may vary. This set will cost $40.

The Mega Construx Masters of the Universe Battle Bones set which we showed you before will also be hitting SDCC and will cost $30. The set includes four buildable micro action figures, Man-At-Arms, Teela, Faker and a flocked Moss Man, a heroic 20 weapon accessories, and even a Moss Man pine-scented air freshener that smells just like the original action figure!

It would be nice if Mattel made some Thundercats using the new articulated MOTU origins body style.

Yeah, I'd like to see that. Maybe if that odd Thundercats Roar tv series is a success Mattel would consider release classic stuff again, but I see this unlikely.

Yeah, tell me about it, those Funko 5.5 figures really burned me. Every single one I bought except for Zor had fragile cheap legs.

A shame, 'cause the concept was neat, at least on paper. It seems that the Conan wave and the TCats wave 2 were cancelled.

ha exactly!

they are better because they have more articulation than those

And I also doubt that they are this fragile.

I just opened this set and man I Love them.. I bought them from a seller on ebay who had 5 in hand ready to ship. 159.00 dollars later and boom its in my hands. I got the last one he had I believe not sure if he has more have no idea how he got his hands on them either, must work for Mattel? But back to the figures, they are nice. very sturdy. You know the feeling when you open a figure and it makes you want to freak out like Beavis used to until Butthead would tell him to settle down, that was me. These are the He man figures I always dreamed of but never thought anyone would make.

The joints are smooth and decently tight.

All of the articulation works great.

Most every piece is cast in the color of plastic it was intended. except eyes, teeth, wrist guards, furry tuff on hemans boot

The power sword is all one color of metallic plastic the axe and shield are molded in a darker grey.

I prefer the Alcala heads over the vintage heads for sure.

The knife in heman's boot is kinda weird but it actually goes down in the boot even if it warps the blade a bit.

The power sword fits nicely in he-mans harness which is removable on the back with one little red square peg.

The detail on adams vest is nice makes me want more cloth goods on these figures.

The packaging is possible the best I have ever seen on any figure hands down. simply amazing.

If I had to complain about anything it might be the knee articulation, seems a little odd but it does work and the joints are decently tight so I'm ok with it.

The hands swap easily without fear of breaking the pegs.

If the other figures in this line are near as awesome as these two are this line is gonna be amazing.

I know what everyone will be thinking," is this guy bull sharting us." I don't blame anyone for doubting my review, but trust me I don't believe I got them either it still blowing my mind. Of course I paid a hefty price more than three times the con asking price for it. Would I advise anyone else to spend this kind of money on the set? Well if you could get them in the next week of so but if it would drag on till the middle of July then probably just wait on a 100 dollar set on Ebay to ship sometime in August. Heck I got another set on pre order myself that I purchased before I found this 159.00 dollar deal. No I have not tried to put him on the vintage battlecat or classics battlecat either but I know just by looking at his legs he could ride either.

I give this set 10 stars out of 10.

Thanks for the review. Great to hear about the joints overall on this figure, was a little concerned that they might be a little fragile.

The package does look awesome, hopefully I can get a good deal down the road on this set.

That exclusive is amazing!!! I will not be able to grab one im sure, but thats ok im waiting on my Super7 vintage Orko from BBTS anyways. Wish I could find a release date other than June for him tho...

Really do want the SDCC 2-pack, unfortunately I would have to attend the 'con if I pre-ordered today on their site. Hopefully Mettal knows of the demand and makes a little more available to the general public non attendees.

So basically Mattel lets Super7 makes toys for a license Mattel owns because Mattel can't run a web-store correctly. In doing so, Super7 makes a bunch of new figures and a HUGE playset which Mattel notices and now they want to be popular again...

ha exactly!

I hope these are 5.5inches so they go with all the Savage World/Primal Age figures I've been buying.
