Were you disappointed when Mattel’s mini Masters of the Universe line was cancelled? Well it looks as though there may be some new life for the property since The Loyal Subjects have just picked the license. As can be assumed from the teaser silhouette they plan to incorporate their new Action Vinyl body style into the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe world. No names have been dropped yet since they just finalized this deal very recently.
One nice thing about this deal is that a typical Loyal Subjects figure costs around $13. These figures are fully articulated and come with accessories. Mattel’s mini-Masters were $20 with shipping (since you can’t actually get them in a local store) so roughly $32 for one two-pack of figures with no articulation or accessories. Masters of the Universe fans who want mini figures are totally making out on this deal. Plus more than likely you will be able to find these in a Barnes and Nobles or similar specialty retailers.
This is some pretty exciting news and I can’t wait to see what we have in store. Even if it only ends up being one wave, I’ll still most likely find it more satisfying than the Mattel effort.
