    MOTU Origins news & reveals at Spielwarenmesse, Nuremberg 2020

    Updated February 5, 2020:

    Posted by hlinhk128:
    Leaks from the German Toy Fair Closed Door set up. No pics so far, just descriptions.

    Figures:
    • Wave 1: He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Skeletor, Beast Man
    • Wave 2: Teela, Evil Lyn, Orko
    • Wave 3: Scareglow, Man-E-Faces, Mer Man
    • Wave 4: Trap Jaw, Stratos, Tri-Klops, Stinkor
    • Wave 5: Webstor, Fisto, Moss Man, Roboto
    • Wave 6: Jitsu, Battle Armour He-Man, Buzz Off, Clawful
    • Mail Away Faker

    Vehicles:
    • Battle Cat
    • Sky Sled w/ Prince Adam
    • Panthor with fur
    • Wind Raider
    • Battle Ram
    • Zodac on silver floating chair platform.

    Shoppe Exclusives:
    • 2 pack of Beast Man and Mer-Man. Like He-Man 2 pack they have a vintage toy head and new toy head. 4 hands and more weapons. Yellow trident and wooden axe plus normal weapons. Merman head looks like old mini comic.
    • Teela and Man At Arms 2 pack. Teela has Blond hair head and vintage head, sword and spear and shield. 4 hands on each. Man-At-Arms has vintage toy head and new toy head. Brown cape, mace, sword and gun. Man-At-Arms looks like more paint on him.

    Boxes are window style like Battle Cat with art on top

    • Convention Exclsive: Skeletor Keldor 2 pack. Has open comic like last years set. Skeletor looks painted differently and has vintage toy head, 6 hands and different sword with power sword. Keldor has purple cloth vest, sword and cape with bone harness and extra hands.

    • Castle Grayskull under consideration. Looks like the Classics one but with old paint job with black on the face. Less items included.


    -----------------
    Take all this with a grain of salt and maybe file it under rumour for now, but it seems pretty legit: According to reports in MOTU FB groups, Mattel has 'finally' shown up with MOTU product at the Nuremberg Toy Fair!

    Unfortunately, the exhibits shown 'are intended only for the eyes and ears of the trade audience.'

    However, the report goes on to say 'That's why we can only tell you after our tour: start saving '

    Here's the link to the official website of the event:

    I haven't heard much but I am excited German community reps get a first-look at Origins, and I think it's excellent Mattel Germany is building a relationship with the German and European fan base. They deserve this, and it speaks of great things to come.
    I hope they go further and give German fans unique product from time to time. I think it is only fair considering how much unique and exclusive product we have gotten for years here in the USA.


    I also hope it doesn't stop there and that the Latin American fan base gets representation as well. The Latino fan base for MOTU is huge, and I hope they get their fair share of MOTU as well.
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    I’ve said it before but I really hope they continue mixing up the original figure releases and not adhere to original release order. I’d like to see releases all over the place. Would love a Laser Light Skeletor and Laser Power He-Man before the other variants for instance. Not to mention unreleased or new characters thrown in every so often.

    If that list of waves from what was shown at the German Toy Fair is accurate, it will skip around based on what might be tooling available from what’s used in the WWE line. It’s gonna be a very strong launch from the looks of it for the first year!!!

    To the person who said something about Modulock (idk if I'm doing it wrong, but the quote button isn't workng), I think that's what excites me the most. Like, he and Multibot will open up the line to a ton more customization options.

    Here’s what I seen going around from reddit and a certain Cambodian basket weaving forum. It popped up I think same day Scareglow was shown. It’s gonna be an exciting restart to The brand if this is legit.

    Wave 5: Webstor, Fisto, Moss Man, Roboto

    Wave 6: Jitsu, Battle Armour He-Man, Buzz Off, Clawful

    Mail Away Faker

    Okay, if that's the case, I'm buying everything. It looks like we're getting my favorites fairly early on (Faker, Moss Man, Trap Jaw, Zodak, and Keldor, who sounds like he'll look like Anti-Keldor from the Masters of the Multiverse comic, which I absolutely love). Also, do you know how mail aways work? I'm a little too gen Z to have experience with that.

    Also, I'm surprise by the lack of Horde/PoP stuff. Like, is there some kind of licensing thing or are they trying to keep the brands separate.

    Finally, please bring on Castle Grayskull. The bigger the better imo.

    Thanks for sharing. That's really an interesting and intriguing list you have up there. So no Ram-Man, or Battle Armor Skeletor, and yet a mail away Faker?!... Does Teela come with the Snake armor outfit?

    I'm happy to see some of the vehicles and Castle-Grayskull are in there! But not too happy about another hard to obtain Con exclusive!

    But generally that's not a bad start at all... I'll be buying everything I can find.

    I wonder what CG would come with. Like, I personally wouldn't need all the extra sculpted stuff, especially if it keeps costs down. Like, the turret and the throne are probably the only essential items. I probably wouldn't display it with the extra floor even if we get it. Also, I really hope it's the same size and keeps the doors.

    That's a really cool lineup if true. I really hope we get MOTUO in the UK. It would be so good to buy these off the shelves instead of online.
    MOTUC WISHLIST - Karg | Lady Slther | Kothos | Staghorn | Sorceress of Serpos Teela | Hunga the Harpy | Kittrina | Dylamug | Hawke | Angast | Zilora | Artilla | Quakke | Robo-Woman | Great Black Wizard | Enchantress | Red Beast | Delora | DC He-Man | DC Skeletor | Lodar | Fang-Or | Mini Comics Tri-Klops | Filmation Jitsu, Frosta & Kobra Khan | Hans Hammer Holder | Granita |

    I’ll buy it all of course because I do want all those characters, but that list is what I didn’t want them doing. Disappointed at the selection.

    Mix it up!

    I agree 100%. If these aren't available worldwide at retail it will be a real disappointment.

    Ooh, now that is really exciting! Especially the minicomic variant stuff. Wow!!!

    I'd be interested to see what their take on Ram Man would be. I note he's the only 1983 figure that didn't make the list. I would guess due to unique tooling.

    I'm wondering if we'll get Horde figures. Like, is this just year one or is it all that's planned?

    My word, that line up sounds incredible. If true, Mattel really are going all-out with the Origins line. They clearly want to bring MOTU back to the mainstream. And Stinkor! My favourite!

    The lack of pop is concerning. Another sdcc exclusive that is actually an eBay exclusive that sits at $200 is not doing much to win me over. I like the vehicles, of course I need to see them first. And again, I’ll eat my hat if it’s the motuc castle. I want a vintage sized castle for vintage sized figures. I tell you I’m trying to like these but I hate that new he-man head. Again maybe in person I’ll change my mind and I hope so. If not I will hope my son likes them so I can support the brand. Strange days these are indeed.

    Also is this exclusive to Walmart? That will make it difficult for many to obtain these if they are.

    And just to echo others, I hope an origins forum can get up and running soon.

    Judging by this leak, there seem to be walmart exclusives, but the line will be general retail

    Good question. I'm guessing those are delayed because so many would require a lot of unique tooling? Although at least Hordak and Grizzlor could use some parts with He-Man and Beast Man.
