Masters of the Universe was the ultimate combo of Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons, and many ’80s kids simply went bonkers for it. And with news of a He-Man movie finally coming in 2021, many old school fans are more nostalgic for the the heroes and villains of Eternia than ever before. Lucky for us, the folks at Mattel are giving fans some amazing new exclusive for Comic-Con in San Diego this year, centered around one of the greatest toy brands ever made.
First off, there’s the Masters of the Universe He-Man & Prince Adam 2-Pack. The Set includes one He-Man figure and one Prince Adam figure, both styled to look like the vintage versions of the characters. Prince Adam wears his removable blue vest, while He-Man has a removable knife accessory tucked into his boot, a detail that super fans will recognize from early concept art. The blue instead of pink vest for Adam might seem odd to fans of the classic animated series, but it’s what Adam wore in the original Mattel mini-comics back in the day.
Sixteen points of modern hinge-and-ball joint articulation let fans pose and play with these figures like never before. He-Man comes with axe, shield, and Power Sword. And both figures have three sets of interchangeable hands for dynamic posing and interchangeable heads based on the sculpts of the original toys. Colors and decorations may vary.
This 2019 Comic-Con Exclusive will be available for pre-order for $40 at shop.mattel.com starting June 17th or for purchase in person at Mattel’s SDCC retail booth starting July 17th. There will be limited quantities available.
