Masters of the Universe Origins Wave 8 With Sun Man Update

by Jay Cochran
January 31, 2022
Yesterday it was announced that the general retail version of the upcoming Masters of the Universe Origins Sun Man figure which is part of the 8th wave from Mattel will be going up for pre-order tomorrow (2/1). Now this might be confusing to some who had already pre-ordered the figure along with the rest of the figures in the wave which includes Clawful, Horde Trooper and Anti-Eternia He-Man. Many online retailers has previously listed the wave weeks ago but last week had seemingly took the pre-order listings down. From what I can tell it seems Mattel wants to give Sun Man a big push by having him officially go up for pre-order tomorrow by himself with the official pre-orders for the rest of the figures to go up at a later time.

If you have already pre-ordered these figures from your favorite online etailer, you may want to double check with them but I believe all previous pre-orders will continued to be honored so you won't need to pre-order again. So long story short look for the regular retail version of Sun Man to go up for pre-order (in some cases again) tomorrow everywhere Origins are sold including our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth. The pre-order should go live at 9am ET. As I type this I don't expect the other figures in the wave to be listed tomorrow, but likely will soon follow.

As for the Deluxe MattelCreation version of Sun Man that went up for pre-order back in September, knock on wood that will hopefully start shipping out to folks sometime in February as well.

I pre-ordered 4 Horde Troopers; I keep telling myself that I don't need more. (We'll see how long I hold out.)

Looks like the Exclusive Sun-Man is not coming until May, so I will probably grab this version too.

Masterverse was never supposed to be the line strictly for Revelations. It's supposed to be a catch all line and it's beginning was Revelations. There's plenty of product coming out for all of the lines.

Its funny, eventhough these are official Mattel releases... they still feel like knock-offs. Especially the ninja design. Sun man has an odd history and was pretty unknown before the internet. I hope the original makers made a buttload selling to Mattel!

Sun Man was quite well known...in the community. There were articles in magazines and everything. I can agree Sun Man wasn't as well known outside the community...and that was for a good number of reasons. Milestone (as a good comparison) had the same issue. It just wasn't covered by "mainstream" media for the same...reasons (I'll say no more). I'm just happy Mattel is folding the MOTS folks in. I would LOVE to see a Revelations style Sun-Man...even a animated MOTU one from the Netflix series. They were designed to fit right in with MOTU from their inception in the 80s. They just added some much needed color. But HARD to find (I wanted one as a kid and never got/saw them). Glad that won't be a issue in 2022.

Now if Mcfarlane can give Milestone some love lol.....

I totally support having more of the rulers of the sun officially in MOTU. The villains alone are great! And I like the history.

True. But personally, I'll wait until mattel announces new masterverse figs passed merman and teela. Passed those characters it's been pretty quite for masterverse news. They could just continue the line without a Revelations toon but hard for me to even see that happening since all 8 of my targets don't sell masterverse as well as they do origins. I've bought doubles and triples of most characters to support the line so I hope it does stick around.

Jaaaaaaaay! Hope all is well w ya! Hmmmm. I only heard of Netflix renewing the cgi kiddie one. I'm only guessing and hopefully I'm wrong because I love the figs .....but if I was a betting man I'll be surprised if revelations gets a second season. But hopefully the put out ram man and roboto. I wish mattel put out some news on masterverse. Villians definitely outweigh the heroes on my masterverse section.

I seen new Masterverse figures stocked at my local Target ? so I don't think this is going away anytime soon... I pre-ordered King Grayskull yesterday at target ? online.???

February should determine the fate of masterverse. Origins seems intact but after decades of target shutting down poor lines it'll be amazing to see if target decides to keep masterverse. I have 8 targets and haven't really seen much support for the line most likely due to the divided fan base. Personally, I hope the line continues as it's my favorite retail line. We haven't heard of any new additions passed masterverse teela and merman plus the heman skeletor variants so been pretty quiet on the masterverse front.

As long as there is entertainment properties pushing the toys Target will likely continue to carry the stuff. We already know the CGI series is getting another season and there is a live-action movie coming to Netfix and possibly another season of Revelations, so my guess is these lines aren't going away anytime soon.

Oops forgot about king grayskull target exclusive....wish we had a roboto deluxe too!
