Masters of the Universe Origins - Mysteries of Grayskull Deluxe Accessories Pack - Power Con 2021 Exclusive

One of the most-requested obscure Masters of the Universe characters finally becomes a fully articulated action figure in this accessory pack. The Explorer Space Suit was originally depicted as a cardboard insert in the vintage Castle Grayskull playset. While it might have originally been intended to be a space suit, it has also been interpreted as either an ancient suit of cosmic armor or even a robot. It certianly has sparked the imaginations of fans over the years, and now it gets its own figure in the new Origins style. Originally released as an exclusive for Power-Con 2021, the figure comes in a three-pack of add-ons for the Origins Castle Grayskull playset which also includes a 3d dungeon grate with tentical monster, and the Spirit of Grayskull.

Masters of the Universe - Attak Trak Battle Machine

The Attak Trak, a vehicle from the vintage Masters of the Universe toy line, is a rugged land vehicle with a red chassis, built by Man-At-Arms and used by the Heroic Warriors. Its mighty treads are able to negotiate difficult terrain and overcome even the most challenging obstructions. Although designed for a single driver, it is large enough for passengers to ride holding on to its sides. The vehicle is also armed with two laser guns capable of firing powerful blasts.

Many of the components of the Attak Trak were salvaged by Man-at-Arms from the ancient ruins of the elders. Unknown to Man-at-Arms, the computer control system that he found included a powerful artificial intelligence (AI), making the vehicle capable of acting on its own and it will actually refuse to allow the Evil Warriors to operate it!

Review: Masters of the Universe Revelations

So, the Kevin Smith led Masters of the Universe Revelations has finally dropped on Netflix... I am sure most of you have heard of this and probably have been watching the controversy surrounding it. However, if you haven't, let me sum it up for you.

Kevin Smith told us that this would be a continuation of the original Filmation cartoon series (a lie). He told us that he was a He-Man super fan and that he couldn't wait to run home from school to watch it (a damn lie).

Masters of the Universe Origins - Castle Grayskull: Unboxing & Review

When I began collecting the Origins line I never thought I would collect more than Origins figures of the Original 8 of the vintage line. Ok... yeah right.

I never thought I would ever get the new Origins Castle Grayskull... Heck I have a vintage Grayskull that has been repainted and customized! But when we were at a local Wal-Mart to get a box of coffee and I saw this thing sitting on the shelf in the wild, well... Just like always, into the cart it went!

Review: Masters of the Universe Origins Mer-Man

Enter Mer-Man, the ocean warlord who lurks in the darkest depths of the sea awaiting Skeletor's orders. The Mer-Man figure in this Origins collection stands 5 1/2-inches tall and has 16 moveable joints, so he's highly poseable for imaginative and action-oriented fun.

Mer-Man was part of the first series of Masters of the Universe action figures released by Mattel in 1981-1982. The character was conceived as Skeletor's most prominent henchman after Beast Man.

Hailing from the Crystal Sea, Mer-Man is the ruler of all beneigth the seas of Eternia and the king of the Mer-Folk of Eternia! While a king in his own right, Mer-Man has allied himself with Skeletor in his own selfish hopes of gaining more power.

Mer-Man's service to Skeletor means he is constantly at odds with He-Man and the heroic champions of Eternia. When engaging the Heroic Warriors, Mer-Man is most frequently teamed up with Beast Man.

Masters of the Universe Origins: He-Man and Skeletor get better looking heads...

I'm not a big fan of the gimmick figures, but I went ahead and got my hands on a Battle Armor He-Man just to get the vintage head that comes with it. I am not a big fan of the new head sculpt so having the vintage head make the figure look so much better!

I might do a more complete review of Battle Armor He-Man one of these days but like I said I got it only for the extra head, so lets just say that you get a figure with a new head sculpt with heman with his mouth open wearing the battle armor that shows damage on the chest plate when you strike it... standard rolling barrel just like the vintage figure except for some odd reason the battle damage area is much smaller.
