Ever since Kevin Smith announced his involvement with a new He-Man series for Netflix called Masters of the Universe: Revelation, fans of MOTU have been waiting with bated breath for any scrap of information about this sequel to the iconic ’80s cartoon. And now, we finally have our first images and a release date. We also our first look at the Masterverse Revelation toy line from Mattel. You didn’t think there weren’t going to be action figures, did you?

In a statement, Masters of the Universe: Revelation showrunner Kevin Smith said “I watched all of the TV series growing up, it was everywhere in the ‘80s. These characters started off as toys and ended up becoming part of the global pop culture fabric. So much of this show has been possible because of the love and fandom surrounding this franchise. There’s just so much love and affection for this world at every level of production.”

Smith continued, saying “A big reason we got such top-tier voice talent is because people genuinely want to be a part of this world. So many of us were touched by these stories and these characters early in our lives and were so happy to come back to Eternia. But even if you’ve never watched a single episode of the show or don’t know this universe at all, you can jump right into the story. It’s a really classic, universal action-adventure epic about growth, discovery, magic, and power.”

The new Masterverse collection consists of six action figures with highly detailed designs. These Masters of the Universe figures feature at least 30 points of articulation for extreme pose-ability and come with each character’s unique accessories. Wave One hits store shelves on June 15. It includes the following 7″ figures: He-Man, Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, and Moss Man.

The Masters of the Universe Skelegod figure is 9″ tall. As to how and when Mark Hammil’s version of the Lord of Snake Mountain becomes a deity, you’ll have to wait until July to find out! But he sure looks cool like this, doesn’t he?

The 9 Skelegod makes Eternia's most evil villain into a deity of destruction.
