AFJ’S 10 MARVELOUS MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE FIGURES

Posted April 28, 2017 by

Today, April 28th is Masters of the Universe Day! Yes, such a thing actually exists. Back in 1987, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley commissioned April 28th as Masters of the Universe Day. The day was created in recognition of the “Power Tour” that was in Los Angeles at the time, and thus has been celebrated by He-Man & She-Ra fans since. Honest! So we here at AFJ thought made up a list of 10 Masters of the Universe figures that we thought were marvelous! Yes, marvelous! We stuck with the biggest line of the MOTU figures (to date), the MattyCollector run. Why? This way we would have more to pick from. We also stayed away from your basic He-Man and Skeletor figures. Enjoy Junkies! Remember, you have the power!

10. Scareglow, Evil Ghost Serving Skeletor

Awesome Feature: Glows in the dark. What else?
WTF?! Trivia: In death, he was cursed and banished into the dimension of Infinita.

9. Battle Cat, Fighting Tiger of Eternia

4. Trap Jaw, Evil and Armed for Combat

Awesome Feature: Has an extra regular arm, original head, and all those weapons.
WTF?! Trivia: Skeletor broke Trap Jaw’s Jaw. Later it was rebuilt by Tri-Klops.

3. Beast Man, Savage Henchman

Awesome Feature: The sculpt, the sneer, the badassery that is Skeletor’s henchmen.
WTF?! Trivia: Beast Man’s real name is Raqquill Rqazz.

2. Keldor, Apprentice of Hordak

Awesome Feature: Skin on the man who would be Skeletor.
WTF?! Trivia: Hordak merged Keldor and Demo-Man together to make Skeletor (true story).

1. Gy-gor

Awesome Feature: a giant yellow monkey that wields a battle axe, need I say more?
WTF?! Trivia: Originally Gy-gor had a prototype in the eighties but it never came to light.

Happy Masters of the Universe Day 2017!
