    Sideshow Masters of the Universe Collection

    Sideshow is very excited to announce that we’ll be producing Masters of the Universe Statues, beginning with He-Man and Skeletor! Those attending San Diego Comic-Con will have the power to see the first statue from this brand new line in person.




    Interested to see more before I make a decision.

    Thank you for the link! I know one of the designers who has been working on these and he's an amazingly talented guy. I suspect these will be epic and can't wait to see them!
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Hmmm... given my reaction to the illustration... I'll hold off judgement until I see the statue in person.

    Great! Sideshow got tired of waiting for a new He-Man movie and they will make their own realistic versions. Lol

    Yeah, I am kind of feeling the same way.

    Like others, I am reserving judgement on this one until I've seen some of the product.

    Out of all the recent redesigns of He-Man this is one stands out head and shoulders

    More MOTU statues? Easy pass.
    It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell my friends. They don't have a rock this big.

    I agree 100% with VAl, this would be great to see on screen. It's warrior , barbaric , realistic, I can see Hollywood backing this look.

    Better than the dolph he man with a cape , blaster gun , and leather crotch piece

    I like a lot of it. The feather/eagle/Zoar/Sorceress motiff is neat. The skull does throw me off a bit. I know Grayskull has a skull, but it'll take some getting used to having He-man trot the symbol around, what with his enemy being Skeletor. That being said, if they started using this in the comic I wouldn't be opposed.

    I agree . I do like the first pic on the first page . The face is a little off for me ( like seems more Brom than he-man) and the Evil Lyn head dress seems misplaced, but otherwise, I have no problem with that being a movie-esque design. It might help to see more of the details too.

    If we follow the most recent canons of the MOTU mythos, He-Man and Skeletor are part of the same family (the Royal House of Grayskull, with D'vann as the first member), so it's not odd, if they share some of the same symbols (like the same family crest).

    If im following what he means, the Skull might, potentially, visually seem to confuse the uninformed that it implies a POSITIVE connection to Skeletor instead of Castle Grayskull.

    To me, the design of the Evil Lyn headress maybe enforces that connection. If it was somehow more stylized towards Grayskull , then it might help disassociate it from Skeletor. ( the assumption--visually that Skeletors skull would visually be more realistic).

    I think it all looks pretty good--but i see where others can be put off.

    I love the design! Especially the way the iron cross was treated! Can't wait to see it finished and can't wait to see Skeletor!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I have been hoping forever for sideshow or Hot Toys to do MOTU figures. It would be awesome if this lead to something along those lines.

    I REALLLY like this! It would make for a great movie-design! I wonder if it actually IS the movie design! It is quite possible, and it could be a sneaky way for Sony and Mattel to gauge fan reaction to the design!

    Mattel did it before for the Battle Ram classics, and for the MOTUC design for He-Man a few years back. They debuted the designs at SDCC without any explanation just to gauge fan reaction. Now, granted that was for a toy design and not for a movie design, but it does make sense. Also, Sideshow is known for making a lot of movie-related figures and statues. Hmmmm....

    Anyway, I want this, so bad....

    LOVE this design! It's respectful to the original but adds of ton of new elements to it to keep things fresh. Can't wait to get the full reveal in a few days. And if a new MOTU movie ever gets made, I would want them to go in this direction.
    Wabawalawoo!!!
