MONDO SUMMONS THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL FOR A NEW LINE OF “MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE” COLLECTIBLE FIGURES
October 2, 2018
Pre-Order For He-Man 1/6 Scale Figure Now Live
Austin, TX – October 2, 2018 – Mondo is pleased to officially announce its new line of Masters of the Universe collectible 1/6 scale figures. Impressively detailed and gorgeously crafted, the first of these new figures, He-Man, is now available for pre-order at Mondotees.com.
As huge fans the various Masters of the Universe figure lines throughout the years, and the multitude of art generated around them, Mondo Creative Director Brock Otterbacher and a team of artists set out to create a line of figures that not only pushed the characters in new, highly detailed directions, but also kept a sharp eye on the past.
Taking inspiration from the vintage figure line, the old mini comics, unused concept art, and even a sprinkle of bits from the live action movie, Mondo’s Masters of the Universe 1/6 scale figure line is an exciting new take on these classic characters.
He-Man features over 30 points of articulation, fabric costume elements, and a whole host of accessories. It’s the most powerful figure you will ever find, from here to Eternia! Several figures are soon to follow, including Skeletor, Man-At-Arms, Mer-Man, and more.
To celebrate the new line, Mondo created a vintage toy commercial that serves as both a fun nod to the past and a look at the future. “The concept was to do an almost shot for shot recreation of one of the vintage Masters of the Universe commercials for the 80s, the twist being that the kids in those old commercials grew up, along with the Masters of the Universe figures they’re playing with!” said Otterbacher.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
