Motherboard comes packaged in a brown shipping box, with the Mattel Creations logo, and the Cue Dramatic Box Opening Box on the top. Another brown box is inside, with the Evil Horde logo on top, and artwork of Motherboard on all sides. Inside that box, we have an in-color package with Motherboard’s bird form that we’ve seen in the series, which is the statue that Tri-Klops was worshipping. This part of the box includes in-color images of Motherboards bird-form on all sides, including the top. This box opens in the front, and now you see her in her true form, and she is packaged in a plastic tray. The sides of this open box showcase creatures that almost look like statues up on top, with nicely done artwork around it. The center focuses on what appears to be a cave as you can see rocks around the top and bottom of the front, and beyond it is showcasing another planet with rock formations, with space above it and additional planets in the background. The bottom of the packaging includes a base, where the acrylic base is stored and can be removed.
Motherboard stands at 12″ and inspired from her appearance in the upcoming new season of Masters of the Universe: Revelation. She looks to be a magical creature with large articulated wings, and a head sculpt that has an eagle shaped helmet, and the overall look and vibe you get from this figure is none other than the Sorceress herself. Her body comes in a light blue tone, with teal trim on the body, inside the palm of the hands, and part os the chest armour. She is also primarily painted in blue, teal and purple on the wings, black, a metallic pink helmet with purple, a face that has the same light blue as the rest of the bottom, white eyes, yellow lops and dark purple, and the chest armor also has these same colors, with a yellow upside down triangle. Around her neck are feathers, which are some of the bird features that remain after she transforms from her bird form, Screeech.
The wings can expand so she can fly, and on back of the wings they are painted in a darker purple and reddish/purple. The back piece is painted in black, teal, purple and metallic silver, which makes it looked like metal components. The clothed cape is also purple, with teal lines. Underneath the cape are these black rubbery parts that are connected to the top of the wings, with three white parts on each one.
Motherboard includes an extra set of open grip interchangeable hands, an acrylic stand and base that supports her size and allows her to stand.
She is also fully articulated, and includes swivel-hinged joints wings x2, ball jointed neck, ball jointed torso, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed hips, swivel-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.
Here’s a comparison with Tri-Klops and Trap Jaw in their Cult of Motherboard outfits as seen in the series. As you can see, she towers over the 7″ scale figures as she should.
Overall, Motherboard makes her debut figure at this years San Diego Comic-Con, and fans are surely going to want to add her to their collection. The figure looks amazing, and she is an essential piece to the Revelation collection, especially with the upcoming season. Make sure to pick her up at San Diego Comic-Con or Mattel Creations.
