    Mega Construx Future Revealed at Power-Con 2018

    During the panel, it was noted that Mattel has taken notice to how quickly the MOTU figures sell out of the current waves. They said that almost every figure from He-Man and She-Ra has a prototype already done. They also mentioned that Castle Grayskull is going to happen, and it's everything that the fans want to see. They have a Comic-Con exclusive plan for next year, and he hinted that it's some sort of case.


    WAVE 1: He-man and Skeletor
    WAVE 2: Teela and Beastman
    WAVE3: Faker

    Not released yet, but announced:

    WAVE 4: Man-At-Arms and Evil-Lyn
    WAVE 5: Stratos and Scareglow

    There is also the wind raider with He-Man and Skeletor and a 5 pack with the first three wave characters coming soon too.

    If that Castle Grayskull happens, I'm definitely in! And if it sells well, who knows? Snake Mountain?

    Thanks for posting this news, Dormann!!

    It's great to hear that the MOTU figures sell out fast. It would be awesome if we could find them at retail, but as I've stated countless times...."I gave up on finding toys at retail about a decade ago". It would be easier to find a lost earring in the Grand Canyon!!

    Anyway, when it's all said and done, I hope we end up with at least 30 MOTU MCX figures, if not more!

    This line is amazing! and I am glad to see it grow....but Mattel needs to have a talk with Walmart about restocking and carrying these. maybe get Target on board too.

    I am so glad Mattel is getting behind MOTU Mega Construx. I really love the Mega Construx figures as a whole.

    With Mattel claiming they realize how quickly the MOTU figures sell out, I hope they re-release them or continue the multi packs like what’s available for preorder at Entertainment Earth. I so want to collect these, but nothing since wave 1 has appeared in Canada, and even then it was only a single case of wave 1 without a single refresh at the stores I frequent. I was lucky enough to get the only He-man and Skeletor left at the TRU I was at, but there’s been nothing ever since. And that was back in January/February.
    I really hope they’re serious about fixing the distribution and not just paying us lip service....

    Is Entertainment Earth any good these days? I saw the Mega Construx on their site, but I was very leery of ordering from them. I had a couple of rotten experiences with them back in the 90s, but I didn't know if they'd gotten any better.

    I live in Atlantic Canada and I was able to pick up wave 2 at Toys R Us about 2 weeks ago. No Teelas left now but still a few Beast Man.
    Coming straight out of Preternia, tribal chieftess and the original WARRIOR GODDESS, SHARELLLA!!!

    Sharella needs her day in Classics. She is the only remaining vintage POG character that needs a figure.
    Support Sharella for Collectors Choice!

    My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Sharella, Hunga the Harpy, Sagitar, Snake Goddess & Red Beast

    I'm genuinely delighted to hear this news! Great to think of how all the characters will be imagined in this format.

    I really hope Mattel organise some international (specifically UK!) distribution for these mini-figures. I've pre-ordered the 5-pack and the Wind Raider from Entertainment Earth, but the shipping costs are high, and it would be great to be able to just buy these in shops.

    I don’t recall ever having any problems with Entertainment Earth and I’ve ordered a fair number of items from them over the years.

    It will be "everything that the fans want to see"? I highly doubt they will actually make a full and fully three-dimensional CG (rather than the usual clamshell). They should also care about making the releases available worldwide rather than just as US-exclusives; there are lots of fans outside of the US and Mattel is a global company.

    Well said.

    Not to make light of our MCX-less friends across the pond, but many of us in America can't even find these blasted things, so distribution ABSOLUTELY needs improved.

    I'm going to assume that these ( the MOTU ones ) ended up being much more popular than anyone imagined.

    They did not sell well in my area. Last I checked wave one is still on the shelves. We never even got wave two
    In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

    I wish we could send back all the unsold Picards, so they could be melted down and turned into characters we actually want!
