Hey MOTU MANIACS! Just a quick Eternian update from you friends at Super7:
The pre-sale for the Masters of the Universe Vintage Collection Wave 2 Figures, originally scheduled to end today, has been extended to Monday, October 1st.
Our team has been hard at work on making these figures the very best they can be, and have made some improvements since this pre-order started, most notably to the Powers of Grayskull collection!
The original prototype for He-Ro featured a vac-metal gold torso and boots. Early Super7 prototypes featured a metallic gold paint, rather than the vac-metal finish. Fans voiced their concern and we listened!
The Super7 He-Ro figure will officially come with vac-metal torso and boots, just like it was intended. Additionally, both He-Ro and Eldor will now be packaged with a mini-comic style booklet featuring concept artwork and history of the development of the characters.
We will post photos of the updated vac-metal He-Ro later this week.
The Beast Man, Man-At-Arms, Robot He-Man, and Teela 5.5" Figures will come with the previously announced cartoon-accurate accessories and features.
Please note this is not a limited edition release but pre-orders will receive the figures as soon as they arrive from the factory. If you have already placed a pre-order for these there is no need to contact us. Nothing about your order will change.

"Mattel is home to one of the world's greatest portfolios of beloved franchises, and the creation of Mattel Films will allow us to unlock significant value across our IP," said Mattel Chairman and CEO Ynon Kreiz in a statement (via Deadline). "Robbie is a gifted storyteller and a highly respected filmmaker with deep relationships in entertainment. She is the perfect leader to bring our celebrated brands to life.'
Mattel Films will be headed by producer Robbie Brenner, who was nominated for an Oscar for the film Dallas Buyer's Club.
'Generations of children around the world have grown up with deep emotional connections to Mattel's brands and characters," said Brenner. "There are so many stories to be told and so many imaginations to be captured by these iconic brands, and I look forward to working with Ynon and his team to do so.'
This matches a similar effort by toymaker Hasbro, which has run Hasbro Studios since 2009.
The specific projects planned for Mattel Films were not reported."
