Got rubber bands falling apart on the legs of your vintage MOTU figures? Well, there's a way to fix that! From LeaToys:
"Unlike homemade, 3D printed bands, our OG MOTU Connectors 2.0 are manufactured by injecting the rubber into a steel matrix. This is the same way they were manufactured in the 1980s. They are not 3D printed like some replacement connectors on the market. The rubber is the same as the original rubber. Also, they are very easy to replace on the vintage figures. They legs will be good as new after!
Podcasters of the Universe have posted Episode 40. Jeremy and Steve are back to discuss the Club Grayskull and Ultimate figures, Power-Con, listener feedback, and the "Rock People To The Rescue" minicomic.

"PRE-ORDER OPEN NOW: The Super7 Masters of the Universe Collector's Choice series continues with the William Stout Collection of highly detailed deluxe 7-inch figures. Based on the legendary 1987 William Stout production art, each highly articulated figure was sculpted by the Four Horsemen and comes complete with accessories. The set includes He-Man, Hyper Skeletor, Karg, and Skeletor.
The Masters of the Universe William Stout Collection set of 4 figures is a made-to-order release for $140 per set (plus shipping) and individual figures are available for $35 each with a full set. This pre-order is open until March 31, 2019 with shipping in Summer 2019.
From Power-Con: "To help you prepare for our Power-Con pre-sales, we wanted Non-Attendees to know pricing in case you choose to try and make plans through an Attendee for purchase.
Attendee pre-sales for the Power-Con 2019 exclusives run from Saturday, March 9th, 2019 at 9:00am Pacific time, through Sunday, April 7th, 2019 at 11:59pm Pacific time. Please see our Ticket section on our website for details that were previously announced on pricing and more.
Non-Attendee pre-sales then run from Monday, April 8th through Sunday, May 5th, and are only available from our resale partners. Our resale partners for 2019 are BigBadToyStore in the USA, and S.P.A.C.E. in Germany (in conjunction with Die Welt der Meister Magazin).
BBTS will be offering the exclusives at the following prices: • MOTUC CC 3-pack of Slamurai and two Snake Troopers: $209.99 • MOTUC CC Horde Zombie He-Man: $69.99 • 12? Starburst She-Ra: $64.99 While BBTS’s figure prices are higher, their shipping is $4.00 anywhere in the USA. International shipping varies greatly by location and service selected, but those also cheaper than whatever Power-Con has offered in the past. You also don’t have to purchase a Power-Con Merchandise Access Pass.
S.P.A.C.E. has not provided their prices yet but you can get an idea of what they might cost from the prices of other MOTUC items listed on their website. As far as shipping, their EU shipping rates are available on their website.
Despite higher prices for the exclusives at our resale partners, you benefit from paying far less for shipping than with Power-Con, you will get your items in a much quicker fashion, and you will have a more robust shopping experience where you can select from other product on their store, while also having additional payment options that we cannot offer.
The only other method available Non-Attendees might want to explore is reaching out to Attendees via the He-ManOrg Marketplace, other websites, or on social media groups and pages, to see if an Attendee will pre-order them for you, if you will front them the money. There’s a FedEx on-site at the hotel which makes shipping them easier for an Attendee. But know that any deal you work out with a Power-Con Attendee is done so at your own risk and is not the responsibility of Power-Con.
So Attendees, get ready for pre-sales starting this coming Saturday, March 9th, 2019 at 9:00am Pacific time! When that window ends, the remaining stock will be made available at our resale partners via the dates listed above. And keep in mind that even though we are providing a pre-sales window, these exclusives are limited and are subject to selling out. So there is a possibility they might run out before the pre-sale window closes. Please see the FAQ on our website for more info and answers to commonly asked question.
Thanks again for your support of Power-Con, and we hope to see a lot of you at the show this August 17th & 18th in Anaheim, California!"
Super7 has once again provided answers to your questions. Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these! Check out their answers to your Round 16 questions!
This round of questions were selected by Firefly. Thanks to that fan for their help!
1. Firefly: With 2019 being the 30th anniversary of the New Adventures of He-Man, will Super7 be doing anything in celebration such as releasing new figures or merchandise based off the toyline or cartoon?
Beyond the Quakke figure we produced previously, we currently do not have any New Adventures on the schedule.
2. Neil: Wave 4 of Club Grayskull features six figures instead of the usual four. Is this going to be the pattern going forward for Club Grayskull and Collector's Choice? Or will future waves go back to consisting of four figures?
We generally prefer to keep waves at four figures. CG Wave 4 was a bit of an anomaly with six.
3. Sebastiaan: What is the reason for the new elbow swivels on She-Ra and the Sorceress, and can it be expected as a new template for female figures? This differs greatly from Teela. Also, Kittrina seems to have the same previous version of the elbow swivels.
She-Ra and Sorceress utilize the newer style of elbow swivel joint because on both of these characters, but there is not an armband on the bicep piece. This bicep armband on Teela and Kittrina is used to integrate the arm's swivel joint. Without the armband, the swivel joint would stick out like a sore thumb in the middle of the bicep. The natural solution was to move this joint to the elbow.
4. bamf1980: A growing trend among your many MOTU lines has been to release She-Ra and then a lot of Horde members. When can we expect you to begin releasing the heroes of the Great Rebellion?
We currently do not have a schedule for the Great Rebellion characters, but stay tuned!
5. JafariStew: Would it be possible for Super7 to start casting MOTUC weapons in the color of the plastic that the handles are made of, and then paint the blade/axe/gun? With previous releases, when the figure holds the weapon for too long, the paint from the handles tends to stick to the inside of the hand and then peels off the weapon.
We prefer to use injected plastic for color wherever it is practical, especially on accessories to avoid issues of paint rubbing, and will continue to push for this on all figures going forward.
