Our First Look At The Mattel MOTU Masterverse Line Plus Lots More Origins Figures?!?

by Jay Cochran
October 03, 2020
Back in August during Power-Con it was announced by Mattel that they would be launching a new collector oriented Classics like line of 7" Masters of the Universe figures called Masterverse. During the virtual convention we didn't actually get to see any of the figures in this line, just some blacked out teaser images giving us hints of what characters would be coming.

Well last month an image was discovered on a distributor site originally by akaandrewj which may have given us our first look at one of the figures in Mattel's new line.

The listing was actual for Origins figures, but it would appear someone goofed and include an image of the Moss-Man Masterverse figure instead. The other figures in the original image are definitely Origins figures, but the Moss-Man is not. Of course we can't 100% confirm this image of Moss-Man is a figure from the upcoming Masterverse line, but it's not an image of any previous figure, and the silhouette matches up nicely with one of the figures shown in Mattel's original image.

It was originally assumed this Masterverse line would focus primarily on designs from the new Netflix series, but this figure looks more like it is based on the 200x version of the character. With a name like Masterverse, this line may definitely feature characters all across the Masters of the Universe board.

If this image is legit, it may not yet be the final version of the figure we see released. The figure pictured here does not appear to be flocked, so hopefully that is something that can still be added, again if this is a legit first look at the Moss-Man Masterverse figure.

In other rumors, new retail listings have begun showing up from various distributors as we approach the end of Walmart's exclusive grip on the Masters of the Universe Origins line. Most of the listings show figures we already no are confirmed for the line. The two that popped out to me that are new are a Origins Hordak, Stinkor and Tri-Klops. The Tri-Klops may just be the Fan-Poll winner 1st appearance Tri-Klops figure that was announced during Power-Con, though we hope it's for a regular version that we assume Mattel will release sooner or later.

Thanks to Mr. Scary92 for the heads up on these.

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. ??
