    Masters of the Universe Origins officially announced. Skeletor pictures.

    Skeletor looks great and I love the retro packaging. But Fall 2020 release? That can't be right.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Yes, that's what I've heard.

    Pixel Dan confirmed on twitter that MOTU Origins is a regular retail line and the figures will be priced at $14.99. More figures will be revealed Friday.

    That is great news. What I particularly like about these is the mostly vintage aesthetic with increased articulation.

    Lots of pictures from preview night including new Mega Construx figures and sets.

    Looks like MOTU gets its own Mega Construx line in 2020 instead just being mixed in with the Mega Construx Heroes waves. More Origins figures will be revealed Thursday and Friday. Seems like a MOTU retail renaissance is coming next year.

    Yeah it's strange that these figures are supposedly over a year away from release. Doesn't make any sense. Hopefully that comes a lot sooner, since they already have these Origins figures done.

    These looks really great. I love the way they kept the feel of the original, but still found ways to improve the articulation to meet modern expectations. Looks like they were slightly influenced by the Filmation cartoon as well.

    I wonder about the decision to sell these at retail. While it is fun that they will be at retail at a reasonable price point, I do not see these selling to anyone under 30.

    I can see them selling to kids. MOTU has been toyetic kid friendly from the start. It was designed to be. A bit SW and Flash Gordon mixed with a little bit of Conan sword and sorcery mixed in with little bit of super hero wish fulfillment all topped off with bright colors that pop on the shelves. A big thing the Funko MOTU knock off figures get wrong, in my opinion, is the modern dull colors. MOTU figures were always so vibrant they really stood out. Plus these are going to be sturdy. They wont break like the Funko or Super7 figures do if a kid tries to play with them.

    With the movie coming in 2021 MOTU is going to again be a major focus for Mattel.
