Masters Of The Universe 40th Anniversary He-Man Figure Back Up For Pre-Order At EE

by Jay Cochran
July 01, 2022
Our sponsor Entertainment Earth has relisted the 40th Anniversary He-Man figure from Mattel for pre-order. They currently are only listing it in a wave with the Masterverse Catra and New Eternia Zodac. This is being listed as Wave 5A which is listed with a September 2022 release date.

The 40th Anniversary He-Man figure had gone up for pre-order at EE and other etailers a few months ago but then was asked by Mattel to temporarily take those pre-orders down.

The other day we told you about an in-hand image of the figure that had surfaced online that appeared to have some changes made to it from the early promo images we had seen. Changes like the paint wash used on the skintone of the figure had been removed. EE appears to still be using the original promo images release by Mattel earlier in the year, so it's not clear what the final release of the figure will actually look like.

Im just curious when Mattel asked them to take the listing down did they also cancel the preorders that were already placed?

Pass on this design, but Mattel really has no idea what they are doing in customer service. Origins have been fantastic though. Would have liked more of the reaction.

Even so, not liking what I see here. That chest looks disproportionate. I'll wait and see, but right now this is on the might have to cancel list.

The body is the exact he man body of the kevin smith he man in the first wave, as are 85 percent of the male figures in that wave.

Is this an official picture? If not then I will not make any statements until an official or reputable source shows this picture... It could be somebody just using Photoshop and playing around with the fans!

The image on the right is stretched horizontally notice the mattel symbol its not a true circle and the 40th sticker is too wide, the picture is just stretched.... fake outrage over a he man pic folks move on. Only thing that is diff is no "dirty wash" over the body... Fake Figure news lol

Edited the left photo to close to correct size it should be and upped the color so its not washed out.

Hmm... Weird to see people being happy with paint details being gone. IMO it looks worse without it.
