Super7 x Masters of the Universe – Classics/Retro-Action Figures/Vinyl/Vintage Pre-Order (11.16)
Super7 is doing really big things with their Masters of the Universe license and their partnership with Mattel. For those that do not follow the MOTU or MOTUC scene, Super7 is now taking over the reigns of Mattel’s Matty Collector MOTU line. It was at NYCC, where Super7 unveiled the new Masters of the Universe Classics Ultimate Editions, which feature detailed MOTU figures that are now being re-released with extra accessories or even different paint apps. This is a great way to get their foot in the door with the MOTUC collectors, as a couple of these figures (Teela and Ram Man) are highly sought after with an expensive price tag on eBay.
This coming Wednesday, November 16th at 12PM, Super7 will be offering a made-to-order pre-order for the Ultimate editions, which features Faker, Skeletor, He-Man, Teela and Ram Man. We speculate their prices to be in the $30-35 range to try and stay true to Matty Collector’s original Classics prices.
They will also have available for pre-order, their Curse of the Three Terrors and Possessed Skeletor, which debuted at SDCC with an original short cartoon that featured the original voice of Skeletor, Alan Oppenheimer. This release features the cartoon accurate colors versus the GID exclusive released at Skeletor’s Lair.
This big day of pre-orders will also have something for all the sofubi collectors! Soon the OG colorways of their Skeletor and Beastman Japanese vinyl figures with Gargamel will finally be available! We can expect these to go for $65 a piece.
This is almost a full spectrum of all their MOTU items, because last but not least is the new “Temple of Darkness” Edition Sorceress from their Retro Action 3.75” line of MOTU figures. This release features new card artwork by Jason Edmiston, which will retail $15. Be sure to check after the jump for more photos!
