The heroic protector of Castle Grayskull roars into action atop his trusty Battle Cat! What fabulous secret powers brought us this tangible piece of hyper-masculinity and bravery? Why, Sideshow Collectibles, of course! For $999, you can own this presentation of the strongest man in the universe, and not a single Kevin Smith tear needs to be shed because the layaway plan starts at $112.38.
The maquette measures 23.25″ tall and 16.75″ wide. He-Man’s chest emblem can be swapped between the cross symbol and the “H” crest. His weapons can also be swapped out, too. He-Man can choose to wield the Power Sword or battle-ax. There’s a sheath on his back that can hold the sword.
He-Man and Battle Cat should ship sometime between April and June 2023.
The He-Man and Battle Cat Classic Deluxe Maquette is fully sculpted with detailed textures and movement, from Battle Cat’s green and orange fur to the flow of He-Man’s iconic blonde hair. The mighty prince’s costume includes his signature red and silver chest plates, fur briefs with a gold belt, and a pair of wrapped brown boots. He-Man also has two different swap-out chest plate emblems in both classic and modern designs. Battle Cat wears red armor consisting of a saddle and a spiked helmet. The forces of evil tremble before this empowered duo, prepared to fight to the finish to preserve Grayskull’s secrets.
While I’m always grateful for more classic He-Man stuff, I’d like to see more 200X-inspired merchandise hit the market. Luckily, the Masters of the Universe Origins line will get some figures with accessories from the reboot series. It is safe to say that the larger Masterverse figure line will eventually get 200X characters because something needs to boost the sales. The number of Andra figures I see warming pegs makes me think the toyline is in trouble.
