Mattel’s upcoming Masters of the Universe Origins Fang-Or figure is coming exclusively to Mattel Creations, and Mattel has sent over some details about the figure along with product images.
Update – Mattel Creations has a listing with a launch date of August 8th at 9 AM PDT. Fang-Or is priced at $20.
The Snake Men theme of 2023 continues with the Masters of the Universe Origins Fang-Or Action Figure. First introduced in the mini-comic and designed by Axel Gimenez, Fang-Or served as an engineer for the serpentine villains. This figure has never been done before in the MOTU Origins line.
5.5” Figure comes with 16 points of articulation and additional accessories – a curved blade, wrench, and 2 sets of interchangeable fangs. Figure includes mini-comic that tells his origin story packed in collector- friendly sliding blister packaging.
Notes from the Team:
[Roy Juarez] Both Lady Slither and Fang-Or are original designs created by Axel Gimenez during the Classics era. Ever since they were first revealed, they have been two of the most requested characters, so for us to make them into Origins figures feels epic! As a fan, it is a “checkbox” moment for me that I get to bring these two characters to life through directing the artwork and designing their packaging. When it’s revealed, you will see a direct connection to Preternia. We’ll focus on a lush swamp background, and in the middle of it you’ll be able to see Lady Slither’s Snake Lair.
Fang-Or will come inside our collector-friendly packaging. The blister bubble is easily removable it can slide off and on, and he will also come with an exclusive mini comic. The artwork teases potential upcoming figure reveals and a very cool easter-egg I had to include in the cardback artwork. Fans will notice that the Snake Lair is surrounded by a moat and a creature. The moat pays homage to The Castle Moat playmat that Mark Taylor originally envisioned, and the sea creature is one of the creatures illustrated in The Castle Moat.
