I called it! King Kiss is finally here, and he’s a deluxe action figure. The new spin on a classic Masters of the Universe figure sees the leader of the Snake Men retain many of his play features, but you’ll have to keep track of several interchangeable parts. Rather than featuring all of the snake parts hidden under a splitting torso, the snake head and arms are now separate parts. The snake’s torso is still hidden under King Hiss’s chest armor, and the King’s head retains those funny, bitty eyes.
This design is far better than what we saw in the MotU Classics version, where the entirety of the torso was a separate part. It’s too bad that Hiss does not come with an alternate 200X head, but we’ll probably see that version show up in the MasterVerse line. We spotted the figure come up for pre-order at the Big Bad Toy Store, priced at $23.99. Expect him to ship in January.
In addition to King Hiss, another He-Man is on the way! Thunder Punch He-Man was one of the more exciting versions of the Strongest Man In The Universe. The original toy allowed you to put ring caps in his backpack, so when his play feature was activated, there was a large pop and smoke. Sadly, Mattel isn’t resurrecting that specific feature with Origin’s edition of Thunder Punch He-Man. Oh, well. At least the details on his chest armor pay homage to the original toy and the area where you’d load the tiny explosives. This deluxe figure is $23.99 and is also expected out in January. He comes with an effect part for his fist, a chrome shield, and a golden Power Sword.
