    This has to pretty much confirm that Loyal Subjects won't be doing a third wave.

    Bummer if true.

    Cool that the minis are back I guess though. Shame they’re blind boxes as I don’t want to re-buy the ones I already have.

    So what's different about them from the Mattycollector ones? Is the size different? They look like they might have different head sculpts.

    Marty Collector didn’t have regular He-Man or Skeletor. There are deco variations on others.

    Buzzoff, Ram Man, Stinkor, and Trapjaw are all new.

    EDIT: Man at Arms (no mustache) and Beast Man are minicomics deco. The only straight reissue is Faker and I think he might have a deco change.

    EDIT AGAIN: Minicomics Trapjaw and Disco Skeletor also in the line.

    Admittedly, I'm pretty surprised they're taking yet another crack at these. They didn't exactly light the world on fire the last go-round, and all these years later the price point has got to be even higher than they were before.

    They look to be single issue blindpacks in a 3 inch plastic Grayskull that’s vintage toy based.

    I was interested until they said blind packs. Not playing that game anymore.

    Incorrect. Regular style Mini He-Man and Skeletor were the SDCC Exclusive for 2013, and were offered as far back as 2015 in a Convention Sale on Matty. I believe these are a little bigger than the minis that came out the following year, but these were in fact sold on MattyCollector.

    The exclusives were, in fact, about 1/3 larger and the reason I never picked a set up. It will be nice to add original He-Man/Skelly at a matching scale.

    Now, these I will buy! Not so much the Origins stuff. Bummed Classics is on ice. I guess that includes Club Grayskull too.

    Is it confirmed these figures are the same size as the Mattel figures that came with pieces of the Grayskull and Snake mountain?

    I believe its fall, just like the Origins line. The only MOTU from Mattel before fall are the Megaconstrux and maybe the windraider hotwheel.

    I doubt I'll be buying into this, but they look cool, and I hope they provide a cheap entry point for new fans.

    Also, I wonder why Slime Pit He-Man's seen so much usage lately

    I think people dig translucent stuff, and itís an easy way for the company to reuse a mold.
