Cornboy from the Four Horsemen posted on Facebook confirmation that they will be working on MOTU Classics with Super7:
"Now we can say it...
YES! Four Horsemen Toy Design and Super 7 are going to be working together to continue Masters of the Universe Classics. You can all take a deep breath and relax now. Lol. It might take us a bit to get all of our ducks in a row, but we're all working very hard to make this happen.
As for Thundercats? Four Horsemen and Super 7 are both VERY interested in working together to continue that as well, but those logistics are a little more complicated than MotU Classics. We're pushing for it to happen, but that's all we can really reveal for now. Please be patient and we'll let you know as soon as we have something more solid to announce."
Sam Chou from Style5.tv has posted details on his site about where his He-Man: First Snowfall animation short will be playing:
"It’s been a weird scramble to find out what the heck was happening with my short film He-Man:First Snowfall, but to make a long story short…Super7 saves the day!! Yes, Super 7 will be presenting the film on Saturday at 3pm. THEY HAVE THE POWERRRR! (see what I did there?) Here are the screening details:
What: He-Man:First Snowfall short film to screen at Mark Taylor Autograph Session (FYI. He was the concept artists for the 80?s toy line!)
Where: Skeletor’s Lair pop-up shop -701 8th Avenue (corner of G Street) San Diego. To gain access to Skeletor’s Lair, you have to go the Super7 booth #4945 to obtain a Power Token first. (link here)
When: Saturday – July 23rd at 3:00pm PST.
A big thank you to Mattel, Val Staples, and especially Brian Flynn and the Super 7 Team. I’m honored by your commitment and love of HE-Man and all things MOTU."
"Thanks for the great feedback, gang! Couple of things-
- don't know what the SRP will be, but trying to keep them under $200.
- the accessories you see there are just a portion of what they come with. There are a lot more hands, swords, blasters, easter eggs from the movie, and best of all- lil buddies! If you've seen our TMNT line, then you know I like to include lil buddies with figures.
- we tried a fake fur loincloth, but it looked silly, so opted for a faux leather one. I love it. Still have fake fur on the top of the boots. It may look sculpted in these pics, but it's not.
- vintage heads will come standard (like we did with the TMNT figures, and the alt mask colors). I have't decided what we're doing with the Alcala skull yet. But we will be having Mondo exclusives, and they will be something you'll want. Will probably do a timed edition for them, like we did with our Ramona Flowers recently, in order to give more peeps the opportunity to get em.
- regarding price: I know it's quite a leap from the MOTUC figures, and respect that. However, if you want to get in, but the price seems daunting, keep in mind that we have a payment plan system in place, so you can spread the cost out over several months."
Penny Dreadful, life-long MOTU & POP fan, Roast Gooble host, and contributor to Dark Horse book projects, has started a post on the He-Man.Org forums encouraging fans to share their thoughts about what they'd like to see Super7 do with the MOTU Classics franchise. Have your own hopes for the future of Classics? Please log into the He-Man.Org forums and share them.
The SDCC exclusive She-Ra doll was well received and a fast seller! So now the question remains: will we get more?
Garrett Sander at Mattel is letting fans know that if you want them, then please let Mattel know! He posted on the He-Man.Org forums: "Yes please make noise, with there no longer being a matty collector (see matty's facebook page )we need you all to be vocal in your want and we will do all we can to get more made! Thanks for all your support! We really appreciate it!
Also please note that these are very work in progress but we want to show something of what could be if we got to continued the line! So yes, we know some details are wrong! Lol"
A prototype for Catra and Netossa in this same format were shown off at SDCC. Check out the photos at the bottom of this article.

We want to let you know that we have been working on something new and different for you that measures up to your loyalty and devotion.
As of December 31, 2016, we will be shutting down the website as we transition to Super7 to manufacture and deliver the Masters of the Universe and adult collector lines. Subscriptions and orders for 2016 will remain unaffected, and the site will continue to operate through the end of the year. For the past two years, Super7 has proven to be a great partner, and we look forward to seeing them continue to grow the Masters of the Universe line. They will unveil the expanded line for 2017 at San Diego Comic-Con.
To help you complete your collections before the end of the year, we’ll be opening the Vault beginning Thursday, July 21 at 9 a.m. PT. All 2014 and 2015 items, and select 2016 items, will be available for sale at that time. They’ll remain in the shop until the end of the year or while supplies last, whichever comes first. For our U.S.-based collectors, any Vault products you buy during San Diego Comic-Con will arrive with free domestic ground shipping.
We thank you for your dedication and support through the years.
From Super7: "Hello Matty Collectors!
This is Brian Flynn, owner of Super7, and I just wanted to say how excited we are to expand our relationship with Mattel and Masters of the Universe this year and beyond! We’re looking forward to creating a wonderful array of exciting and unexpected Masters of the Universe products in the years to come.
As some of you may know, we’ve been working with Mattel for a few years now, creating both the retro 3.75” MOTU figures, the M.U.S.C.L.E. MOTU figures, and last year’s SDCC 2015 Skeletor’s Lair special event. Since then, we’ve announced wave 2 of the 3.75” figures, and wave 2 of the M.U.S.C.L.E. figures, which will debut at SDCC 2016.
Speaking of SDCC 2016, our biggest announcement was that while all this was going on, we’ve been working secretly on the first new Masters of the Universe animation in the classic style since 1985 – “The Curse of the Three Terrors”! In trying to be as authentic to the original series as possible, this new animation features original voice actor Alan Oppenheimer reprising his signature role as Skeletor (as well as Mer-Man and Man At Arms) on a new adventure in Eternia. Additionally, we worked with The Power and Honor Foundation to use original backgrounds from the 1984-1985 series, so this new animation is as accurate as possible. We will premiere the “The Curse of the Three Terrors” at 10pm on Wednesday July 20th, at the corner of 8th Ave. and G in downtown San Diego, directly across the street from this year’s Skeletor’s Lair pop-up shop! Afterwards, “The Curse of the Three Terrors” will be available August 1st for download on iTunes and Google Play for $1.99.
As for new and exciting products, I wonder what other secrets we might have up our sleeves for all of you?"

"The Masters of the Universe battled for power over a post-apocalyptic world regaining its feet, which presented an odd mix of ancient science and modern magic. This world needed an aesthetic balance unlike any used before to make it tangible in the minds of kids. The groundbreaking art of Masters of the Universe continues to inspire products and collectibles as groundbreaking as the artwork itself. The intersection of creativity and imagination that made the world of Eternia come to life was solidified by innovative artists and designers whose work is still finding new life, over three decades later.
You can now sport the Power of Grayskull in more ways than ever. A variety of MOTU jewelry is bringing that cutting-edge artistic aesthetic to you in newly inspired ways.
The Masters of the Universe Power Sword Stainless Steel Earrings represent the balance of power between He-Man and Skeletor. In the first ever MOTU mini-comic, The Sorceress split the sword of power in two, hoping to disseminate the power that any one hero could wield. Later, He-Man would recover one half, while Skeletor would take up the other.
Perhaps the very coolest piece of MOTU jewelry coming to market is the Masters of the Universe Skeletor Ram Staff Stainless Steel Cuff. Skeletor’s weapon of choice hinted at his ancient demonic roots and was never fully explained in the comics or the cartoon. But it remains one of the most striking works of narrative art in Eternia.
These MOTU inspired jewelry pieces aren’t just about nostalgia — they are about an enduring world, kept alive by the timeless art and design that continues to inspire. You can pre-order all of these fine pieces at Entertainment Earth."
