While the ever growing
Masters of the Universe Classics toy line is exclusively being sold on Mattycollector.com
Mattel has devised a strategy to gauge retailer interest with new DC Universe vs. Masters of The Universe Classics 2-packs
. These new
Toys"R"Us exclusive 2-packs are a great way to expand the awareness of
the MOTUC line among collectors who may not yet know about it.
The new 2-packs feature a unique combination of classic DC and MOTU
elements which mesh together very nicely on the oversized blister
package. The clear plastic clamshell features an embossed blast effect
in between both characters which creates the illusion of the collision
between both characters. The art work featured on the blister card front
of both 2-packs is beautifully rendered in a classic Eighties style.
The comics are cleverly concealed inside a clear plastic shell behind a
removable cardboard panel which is identical to the background art.
The back of the blister card features detailed character bios of both
characters. The glossy paper insert features the MOTUC packaging bricks
and the DC Universe blast colliding together along the inside of the
clamshell which is not visible unless the 2-pack is opened. Perhaps
this was the preliminary design concept for the 2-packs but was changed
before production began.
The 2-packs basically consist of a repainted MOTUC figure and a basic DC
Superheroes figure. The He-Man figure included with Superman is the
corrected re-release version and features a lighter shade of gray on his
chest armor, dry-brushed details on the hair, golden wrist cuffs,
differently colored boots/belt/loin cloth and a silver shield with black
rivets. This version of He-Man screams retro as a result of Mattel's
choice of colors which mimic the colors used in the packed-in comic
The Skeletor figure from the 2-pack with Lex Luthor utilizes the new
rereleased body with the corrected closed gripping left hand and is also
painted to resemble his look in the comics. Skeletor's face is painted
in a very bright yellow with pitch black eye sockets. The crossbones on
his chest armor accented in a metallic purple and his armor and loin
cloth is painted in one solid purple color throughout. Skeletor does not
include his Havoc staff but does come with a semi-transparent yellow
power sword. Both the Superman and Lex Luthor figures from the 2-packs
are identical to their previous releases with the exception of Luthor
who includes four differently-colored kryptonite rocks. Aside from that,
there is nothing special about the DC figures. Although Mattel
advertised that the Luthor figure would include his Kryptonite gun, it
is not included.
While these new 2-packs do not offer anything new for DC fans, the
repainted MOTUC figures, retro packaging and packed-in comics truly seal
the deal on these sets. Both the Superman vs. He-man
and Lex Luthor vs. Skeletor
packs are available now exclusively at Toy"R"Us
for $29.99 each.
