Power-Con 2018 – Mattel Masters Of The Universe Booth Coverage & ThunderCats Classics Return

Power-Con 2018 – Mattel Masters Of The Universe Booth Coverage & ThunderCats Classics Return

 

This year, Mattel is showing off a great selection of various Masters of the Universe lines, including the 12″ Jumbo Style figures, 5″ Retro Style Figures, Mega Bloks Construction Sets, and the She-Ra 11″ Figures.

Update – New images added including ThunderCats.

The big news this year, is that Mattel is bringing back ThunderCats Classics, and are showing both Jaga and Grune, two figures originally cancelled from the 2016 line-up (these are not on display just yet). Mattel is looking to offer the ThunderCats line through  something that’s in the works, which could be something like Mattycollector once was, but it’s not clear just yet on what exactly their plans are. Previously, Mattel offered Lion-O, Mumm-Ra (Third-Earth Subscriber Exclusive), Wiley Kit, Wiley Kat,  Jackalman, and Pumyra, and now Grune and Jaga will get their turn likely in 2019. We’ve been told that since Funko has a Thundercats line, this helped Mattel to bring back these figures on their end, which details on that are still sketchy how exactly this came about.

In 2016, Mattel abruptly cancelled Mattycollector and with it, all plans such as the ThunderCats were put on hold for the foreseeable future, and at the time it sounded like this would never return. At the time and leading up to today, it was reported that Super 7 had been attempting to secure the ThunderCats Classics line and license to pursue making figures on behalf of Mattel, which unfortunately did not happen.

This weekend, we are hoping to have some news to shed on this developing story, but we’ve been told that Mattel isn’t giving much information away. We will be talking to them ourselves at some point in hopes to get some clarification.

At their booth, they have Jumbo and Retro figures of Faker, Slimed He-Man and Anti-He-Man. She-Ra 11″ figures has Catra and  Netossa (back on display for the first time since San Diego Comic-Con 2016), She-Ra herself, and Entrapta. He-Man also gets 11″ figures of Teela, Evil-Lyn, He-Man himself and the Sorceress. There are also new Masters of the Universe Mega Construx sets on display.

Pre-Orders of the Mega Construx Sets are available on Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore. Everything else shown is not yet available.
