    Tweeterhead will be releasing a line of MOTU statues in 2020

    As announced on Facebook by Chad from Tweeterhead,
    they will be continuing a line of MOTU statues where Sideshow left off.

    • There will be four different types of statue product
    • Hordak is being painted now, and will be the first release. Hordak continues the scale and feel of the Sideshow line
    • Chad says that fans of Teela and the Sorceress will also love the base of the statues
    • Other character names mentioned were: Trap Jaw, Mer-Man, and Battle Armor He-Man

    More details to be posted as they become available!
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Fingers (selfishly) crossed that in addition to the usual suspects, these folks might get around to including the likes of Sy-Klone, Zodac, Rokkon, Mekaneck in fancy statue form (just some personal faves that usually don't make the cut in bigger scaled statue/toy lines).
    Can't wait to see Hordak!

    What happened with Sideshow. I missed some details.
    "I wouldn't be surprised if this movie has Adam as a skinny nerd from Earth battling another skinny nerd-hacker from Earth that used an alias of Keldor. They then enter Tron-style to a cyber world called Eternia, where they control muscle-bound avatars to battle (called He-Man and Skeletor). And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX

    Been wondering where Hordak went! I hope they continue with the Sideshow takes on the MOTU universe.

    Not a fan of hearing 4 product lines. Stuff is too expensive to have that much at one time from one company. It only hurts the fans who want to get stuff.

    This is such great news! Been waiting to hear this. Would love a Stratos or Zodac. But to be fair, I’d like pretty much any of them! All exciting and positive stuff ������

    Sideshow doesn't have a MotU license any more since end of 2018. Tweeterhead continues the Sideshow statue line so to speak. The last Sideshow statue Orko was already produced in collaboration with Tweeterhead.

    All great news! I'm hoping for Man-at-arms and Beast Man next! Maybe a He-Man on Battlecat in this style?

    I read that as 4 different characters to be released this year. But if there are 4 different lines, then that sucks.

    If there are just four different characters this year, then that makes a lot of sense since they are so expensive. Hordak is for sure coming, and most likely Teela and Sorceress. The fourth is probably Trap Jaw.

    I don't understand why having four lines would be bad. More choices are a good thing. I'm not mad when a restaurant has all kinds of menu options but I only have so much room in my belly and money in my wallet. It's ame with MOTU products; you just have to figure out what you really want the most. I only Collect the Sideshow now Tweeterhead statues, Classics, and the Mondo figures. I But I'm happy we have Mega Construx and other lines that other people might want to collect.

    But that aside, I am super happy to see this amazing line of statues return. I have He-Man, Skeletor and Orko; I even built my own pedestals for them. When people see my collection room they are impressed with how nice the statues look.

    I don't do cameras, every time I try to take a photo it just turns out all blurry.

    Sideshow worked with Tweeterhead is my understanding. Now Tweeterhead is going at them alone. The do awesome DC Super Power statues so they should do good.

    Thanks for the info! It helps fill in the gaps.
