‘Masters of The Universe’ Celebrates 40 Years With A New He-Man Toy!

Star Wars is shrinking on toy shelves while the Masters of the Universe takes over with two separate product lines. Who knew we’d be seeing 1985 happen all over again? The Origins and Revelations lines are still going strong, with even more figures on the way. While the Netflix-inspired toys may not have the staying power of Origins, it’s nice to see sword and sorcery figures getting the push they deserve.

Although it’s a bit past due, which we can excuse given the totally wrecked state of the world, we can all celebrate MotU‘s 40th anniversary with a brand new 7″ tall He-Man figure! Pre-orders are available now at the Big Bad Toy Store for $23.99. The expected release date is in the 3rd quarter of this year.

The strongest man in the universe is called to fit in with the Revelations line, and that’s not all he appears to have in common with the toys in that series. A closer look reveals that he has much of the same buck, except for the head and loincloth being different. The accessories, including the sword, shield, and ax, are all styled after the 1981 series. I can’t blame Mattel for reusing parts. At least we got a classic He-Man head!

If you’re wondering if He-Man and company can still hold kids’ interests, they can. I picked up the first He-Man and Skeletor figures in the Origins line a while ago and gave them to my daughter. After finding She-Ra and Evil-Lyn, I started explaining the relationships between the characters, and suddenly she was off playing house. Evil-Lyn was ordering Skeletor around while He-Man and She-Ra were busy gathering up all the lost My Little Pony figures. Ah, the power of imagination.

In the comment section below, let us know what you think about this new He-Man figure.
