Now this is a cool bit of news. Finishing up Mattel’s week long 2013 San Diego Comic-Con reveals, we conclude with something a lot of fans might find familiar. Mattel is releasing a 2 pack of stylized mini figures of He-Man and Skeletor, based on their designs from the iPhone game that came out last year. Fans will notice that these figures look very reminiscent of the “Mini Masters” that the Four Horsemen sculpted and had presented on display at conventions this past year. They were never something Mattel was going to for sure release, just one of those things the Four Horsemen love doing on their own to gauge interest.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear that the character designs for the iPhone game were purposefully modeled after those Mini Masters, so Mattel would have a viable excuse to release them. They don’t look exactly like those sculpts, but they’re close enough to make the comparison for sure.

Masters of the Universe® Classics Mini He-Man® & Skeletor® Figures
Great things come in small packages! At long last, the fan demanded mini versions of He-Man® and Skeletor®… in a foldout mini Castle Grayskull® diorama package! Each figure has six points of articulation at the arms, legs, waist and neck, and comes with snap-on accessories such as a power sword, shield and havoc staff. He-Man® features a shield with traditional j-hook, allowing it to be held out in front instead of clipped onto his arm!
This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 4, 2013, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con (details to come). It will also be available for purchase at the show, then at MattyCollector.com on August 5, 2013.
