Masters Of The Universe Mattel Masterverse 1987 Movie He-Man and Skeletor Announcement

On August 30th, Mattel announced that they would be releasing a movie He-Man and Skeletor action figures from the Masterverse toy line. These will be the second modern action figures based on the 1987 movie.

Apparently, Mattel doesn't have the likeness rights so the Masterverse He-Man has a generic, and if I'm being honest a little goofy, face. One of my complaints about the Super7 He-Man was the pattern on the bottom of the cape and I'm happy to see that this new version's cape looks more authentic. The Masterverse Movie He-Man overall looks pretty good and looks to come with the same accessories as the Super7 version including The Sword Of Greyskull, his blaster, and two knives, one for his belt and one for his boot.

Masterverse Movie Skeletor

I think the Masterverse Movie Skeletor looks a little better since Frank Langella's face was mostly covered with prosthetics to portray Skeletor. The picture released only shows Skeletor with his Havok Staff, with no sign of his sword or the Cosmic Key that the Super7 Skeletor came with. We can hope he comes with at least those accessories. The Masterverse Movie Skeletor also looks to have a fabric cape which is different from Super7 Skeletor which came with a molded rubber cape.

I'm going to admit that I'm not a huge fan of the Masterverse toy line to the point that I don't have any. I don't really like the way they look and am having fun collecting the Origins toy line. I will be getting these figures and any more 1987 Movie figures Mattel wants to release. I'd be happy with any other figures from the movie even if they don't have likeness rights but I honestly don't think most of the actors from the movie would say no to having their likeness on an action figure. No release date has been released but I'm guessing they will be out before the end of the year. If you were on the fence with the Super7 Movie figures and don't want to pay the crazy prices they go for now I would say pick these up when they're released.
