Slated for August 2022, the Good Smile Company will be bringing us two new figures in the Nendoroid line of collectibles. We’re getting short, stubby, and adorable versions of He-Man and Skeletor!
We spotted these cute chubby guys over at the Big Bad Toy Store. Skeletor and He-Man are sold separately, and both are priced at $70.99. The two do feature some articulation, but given that they’re both just under 4″ tall and have stylized body types, don’t expect to get a whole bunch of dynamic poses out of them.
Keep in mind that these two Nendoroid figures are based on Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation series that appeared on Netflix. Therefore, some design changes reflect that show rather than the Filmation series or Mattel toyline.
Although both figures are priced the same, He-Man gets a lot more when it comes to accessories and swappable parts. In addition, good Smile Company, rather than producing multiple Skeletor heads, has opted to have his jaw and eyebrows articulate.
The strongest man in the universe comes packed with the following bits:
- He-Man figure
- 3 Face plates
- Combat expression
- Winking expression
- Smiling expression
- Sword of Power
- Battle Axe
- Battle Cat illustration sheet
- Figure stand
Skeletor comes with the following accessories:
- Havoc staff
- Shaping staff
- Power Sword
- Skeletor’s throne
- Figure stand
If the faces for both resembled the Filmation versions, I’d probably pick these up. However, I’m not a fan of whatever Revelation was supposed to be, nor did I care for the anime-lite art style.
What are your thoughts on these two stubby warriors? Let us know in the comments section below.
