The Return of the King

Mattel's Masters of the Universe (MotU), one of the company's most successful multimedia franchises, is to return in the Fall!

Behold King Grayskull, who will be a SDCC Exclusive! King Grayskull is the inaugural MotU figure to feature super articulation and classic detail sculpting by the Four Horsemen. Grayskull comes in a brand new package, featuring lights and sounds, which transforms into a mini Castle Grayskull playset.

Castle Grayskull was once home to King Grayskull, an ancestor of Prince Adam. He appears in the Episode, "The Power of Grayskull", waging battle and ultimately defeating the Snakemen led by King Hiss. King Grayskull's triumph was shortlived and he dies defending his kingdom from Hordak. During his lifetime, King Grayskull ruled with wisdom and compassion.

With the emphasis on the collectors market, and The Four Horsemen in the sculpting saddle, the revitalised MotU line is sure to raise the bar on what constitutes the very pinnacle in mass produced collectibles! Read my childhood Masters of the Universe recollection!

If anyone at Mattel is reading this, please contact me to discuss the possibility of running a 'give-away' competition during the holiday season! Thank you in advance.


  1. That is an awesome figure, but he looks way too much like He-Man, I would have thought he'd be a little different. I loved the revived episodes that were short lived on Cartoon network. Wish I had kept up with them. I never had He-man characters, a friend did and we played with them all the time. I watched all the original cartoons though.

    1. Firstly. Thanks for reading and taking the time to post a comment, it's appreciated!

      I've started watching the 2002 series on DVD and am most impressed! The animation style and widescreen format works wonders!

  2. I had no idea He-Man had ever been redone (aside from that terrible 1987 film!)

    1. I'd highly recommend the 2002 animated series. However, Courteney Cox isn't in it!
