About this deal

Skeletor would then take Snake Mountain and assemble a roster of evil warriors for his own evil purposes. On September 29, Mattel toys invited Nerdist and other outlets to a special celebration of Masters of the Universe‘s 40th anniversary. Mattel gave us a preview of several additions to the line for 2023. Not only did we see the new toys and behind-the-scenes details on the toys’ creation, we also got a special Masters of the Universe tour of Mattel HQ in El Segundo, California. Including a peek into Mattel’s “Eternia Room.” There, the company archives 40 years of Masters of the Universe products. You can see the Eternia Room below: Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys Mattel Toys At first, it was a image of Serpos, with three heads like the snake god, but during the time, two heads disappeared, leaving only one and the body somewhat damaged. Snake Mountain made several appearances in the minicomics. Its depiction varies, but it tends to include both elements of the Filmation series as well as the appearance of the toy. This 7″ scale figure has a premium sculpt and deco inspired by the New Adventures series. The Skeletor figure contains 30+ points of articulation, a cape, his iconic staff, as well as a removable helmet. It pairs with the spring 2023 release of New Adventures He-Man. Masterverse Skeletor arrives fall 2023, at US Target stores. Masterverse Deluxe Revelation Duncan Figure Mattel Toys Mattel Toys

Safety restrictions are the same for mass retail kid toys and collector-skewed figures. This keeps weapons form being too sharp. They’re trying to find a way to do vehicles for Masterverse figures if they can make some small enough for shelves but still big enough for figures. As a figure moves up the stairs and through the upper gate -- BAM! It will drop through the trapdoor and into the cage that can be moved to the dungeon underneath Skeletor’s throne for safekeeping.Snake Mountain was not introduced until some way into the MOTU franchise. Previously, Skeletor's hideout had been described as "amongst the catacombs deep under Eternia", while the bible for the Filmation series listed his base as being Point Dread, located in the middle of the ocean. This detailed Masters of the Universe™ Origins playset is inspired by the Snake Mountain lair in the Dark Hemisphere of Eternia™. It was created as an homage to the '80s, but with a bigger and better modern design. The huge snake dominates the top. Story options abound with extensive features including a trap door, dungeon, Skeletor™ throne, 'acid pool' and escape tunnel. Stairs and walkways accommodate 5.5-inch Origins figures. For fans 6 years and older. Colors and decorations may vary. Although it did not appear in the film, Snake Mountain is mentioned at least once. Gwildor refers to Skeletor as the "Lord of Snake Mountain", which indicates that the location exists in the universe of the film. We have many, MANY more pictures to show in the gallery below. Let us know what you think in comments. That’s not the only Origins playset on the way. Coming to major retailers next fall will be Snake Mountain. The prototype on display included a snake — with two points of articulation! — that will be smaller on the final product.

New features include actual floors inside the Grayskull and Viper towers, and new ways to display the gun turrets. Foot pegs allow for more deluxe display options, and the lion arms will feature a wider range of motion, with ball joints controlled by an “orb of power.” RELATED: William Shatner to Be a Voice in Masters of the Universe: Revolution Forty years ago, the minds at Mattel Toys had a brilliant idea. Combine the aesthetics of Conan the Barbarian with the sci-fi action of Star Wars for a new line of action figures. The result was Masters of the Universe, a toyline that gave birth to a franchise. Although the line’s popularity was most prominent in the ’80s, the kids who grew up with He-Man and Skeletor’s eternal struggle never forgot. Masters of the Universe continues to grow to this day.We are guessing the actual price will be in line with the MOTU Origins Castle Grayskull and that it will be more a more expensive set given production and manufacturing costs have gone up since the release of Castle Grayskull. The range we see on Deep Discount gives us a good idea on the the amount of money we will be shelling out, which is way less than the Mattel Creations Eternia playset! Snake Mountain Image from Toy Fair Germany Snake Mountain was formed long ago, during the war against the Snake Men. The Council of Elders used their power to bind Serpos, mighty serpent god of the Snake Men, to a mountain on Eternia's Dark Hemisphere and turned it to stone. Origins - Frog Monger & He-Skeletor will be released as Mattel Creations Exclusives. He-Skeletor is from the German Audio Plays which is also where Anti-Eternia He-Man originated from. This setting however was one of the main locations in all of He-Man lore to never get produced into a playset. There was a concept however by the MOTU classics team, that never came to fruition. Pictured below, you can see the elaborate playset with its multiple platforms with different areas of the exterior of the palace. A landing pad for the Wind Raider, grand staircase for Princess Adora to come down, multiple platforms to place your Royal Guards, a cave to park the Road Ripper and even a working elevator. Yes, this would have been so grand, had Mattel produced it. Masters of the Universe Classics Unproduced Eternian Royal Palace Concept As a figure moves up the stairs and through the upper gate -- BAM! It will drop through the trapdoor into the cage. The cage can move to the dungeon underneath the throne of Skeletor for safekeeping.
