Like it or not, it looks as though the wheels have begun to turn with Super7’s resurrection of Masters of the Universe Classics. At San Diego Comic Convention earlier this year Mattel announced that Super7 would be taking over manufacturing and distribution of all Masters of the Universe adult brands starting in 2017. We have our first real sign that MOTUC will indeed be continuing as Cornboy from the Four Horsemen posted the following to Facebook yesterday:
Just so all of you MotU Classics fans know, we (Four Horsemen) just shipped the first five (sort of) new prototypes off to Super 7 on Thursday and at least three more are going to be ready to go within a couple weeks. We’re off to a big start with these, and we’re all SUPER (7) excited to see where this leads. (Source)
In addition to the exciting news that Masters of the Universe Classics looks to be going back into production, it’s also two weeks before New York Comic Convention. A show that Super7 will be attending. Could we possibly see these prototypes in October? Fingers crossed!
It will certainly be interesting to see how Super7 handles the eight year old toy line. Until then they have a ton of retro inspired Masters of the Universe vinyl, ReAction, MUSCLE, and other things to check out.
