    MOTU Origins x WWE Mash-Up Line

    Man, on one hand.. it’s been a war to get anything MOTU related on retail shelves but drips and drabs, and this gets a whole line right out of the gate. I’ve got some kinda proxy jealousy thing going on.

    I can’t deny the designs are a ton of fun and there are some funny references there that I get, but I haven’t been into WWE for over a decade.

    Kinda bittersweet about this. Battle armor Macho Man and Hunter as versions of Skeletor are pretty great though.

    These are great! Not really my thing, but great. Hopefully gets a new generation excited about MOTU. Leveraging the huge WWE brand to push MOTU is a great idea.

    I just saw them. Wow, the direction Mattel is taking is leaving me behind. Maybe wwe will get a new generation in to motu, but I’m out.

    I see there is a grayskull themed ring. I may buy that. For classics.

    I like it! I don't think I'll buy many (any) but it's fun and a good match for mashing up. I definitely know people who will go for this.

    Ok, so I actually semi called-this but thought it was going to be Super 7 to make this move when they got WWE Muscle.. glad they are getting crazy. Macho and Faker Cena are mandatory purchases - i can only hope for a flair and hogan figure. What's interesting, are the accessories .................veryyyyy interesting indeed

    So, they can't afford to continue Classics or Club Grayskull, but they can afford this kind of stuff? The likenesses of those wrestlers can't be cheap. The extra tooling, the extra details, the extra articulation...can't be cheap. Happy for whoever wants this, but I want more 7" Classics.

    Ruben said in Pixel Dan's video that they were looking for new audiences. Guess us Classics fans are now obsolete!

    Macho Man at Arms, the arena, and MAYBE Rey Mysterio are my easy buys and I’m not even a wrestling guy. Those seem like they could blend into a MOTU shelf. I like the Man E Faces one. Some of these feel like they could be worth it for customizing.

    I think this is SUPER smart and EXACTLY the right marketing approach but the 80s guys mesh better with this style for my money.

    I will buy a Sgt. Slaughter for sure if they do one. Might also be swayed by a ref or commentator if it means I can headswap MOTU characters into suits/tuxedos.

    I’d probably also be tempted by a “Backstage Ambush Snake Mountain” or an “Entry Stage Slime Pit”.

    Keep in mind, wrestling playsets are low price. I bet the Grayskull Arena will be under $30 unless it includes figures and might start at $20.

    I'm wondering if Super 7 will continue to just focus on Classics for the collectors ??? This move from Mattel can cause some serious damage to collectors who really wanted to get more Classics if they revoke the license from S7. I hope Super 7 can maintain the license after Snake Mountain for classics and some of the more interesting 5 inch figure variants.. just remember who the BIG company is. The past few years, the retro market has boomed, Super 7 has been working hard to promote the MOTU franchise - and I see this as an opportune time for the mad kings at Mattel to reclaim the thrones. Makes cents.

    Thank goodness I am not into these AT ALL. It's a neat idea for those who like it but I absolutely despise wrestling.

    I’m not into wrestling myself but the ones who bled over into cartoons and pop culture like Sgt. Slaughter and Randy Savage (and The Rock and Dave Bautista) grab my attention as do the ones whose designs look like MOTU characters.

    The arena interests me mainly for putting MOTU characters into. It has a lot of love in terms of how they adapted it and will probably be super-affordable. I might need to work up a sticker to cover the WWE logo but in my head it’s an Eternian arena. If they do a new fold out Grayskull, it might act as the floor between halves for me.

    I think we need a reminder that products you may not like are not an assault on you or your fandom. They’re toys that kids are going to buy and play with.

    Makes me want to see :
    1. Mr. Perfect - cross over with Merman " Mr. Merfect"
    2. Hogan - give him any cool accessory and it 'll work - I am a real Eternian
    3. Ric Flair -Randor-like accessories ( I am hearing him cutting a promo with skeletor talking about Snake Mountain)
    4. Jake the Snakeman - with the snakemen logo and green skin!!!!!
    5. Undertaker is a given - with staff and urn
    6. Razor Ramon - with razor hands
    7. Great Muta - Classic Muta would be awesome in this line but some cool ninja/shogun / samurai accessories would be killer
    8. Doink the Clown - C'mon an evil clown in the MOTU verse
    9. Andre the Giant????? I'd opt to get larger $20.00 figures for this //
    10. Shockmaster - as is / no changes necessary

    No female wrestler mash-ups?

    Surely we'll get homages to Teela, Evil-Lyn, Sorceress, She-Ra and Catra?

    I want a Sgt. Slaughter in this style more than any other wrestler, hopefully with a mini-tank of some kind.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Lizorr, T-Rex, Great Black Wizard, rest of New Adventures, MOP Demons, Dream Mistress.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Ileena, Twiggets, Dragoon, Widgets, Dark Dream, Lady Valtira, Count Marzo, Chimera.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    Dare I say it, but they’re a very silly idea. Cool for anyone who fancies them, but not for me.

    These figures barely look like MOTU, but Mattel clearly has enough parts to keep their new MOTU line going a while with Faker, Man-at-Arms, Man-E-Faces, Stratos, Teela, Clawful, Terror Claws Skeletor...
