Originally debuting at SDCC ’15 in prototype form, Super7‘s officially licensed 3.75″ “Masters of the Universe” ReAction figures will finally see their “OG” standard painted release soon! Closely resembling the 1970’s era action figures, the initial line-up features 4 of MOTU’s most iconic charcaters, each with their own individual weapon – He-Man and the Power Sword, Skeletor and his Havoc Staff, Mer-Man and his sword and Beastman with his whip. Produced in PVC using colors close to Mattel’s original 5.5″ line, each fully articulated figure comes blister packed with individual, hand painted card art from Jason Edmiston. Recently unveiled at the 2016 New York Toy fair, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed on a full retail release for these very soon…
