On February 15th, MattyCollector.com will make the Man-at-Arms Master of the Universe Classics figure available through their website. So if you missed this guy the first time around, he'll be available for $20 each.
The first non-traditional action figure to be released from the Masters of the Universe Classics line is He-Man's trusty friend - Battle Cat. Also being released on February 15th, this figure will be available via MattyCollector.com for $30 each. Saddle up!
The folks from MattyCollector.com have posted up this teaser image of the Masters of the Universe Classics Moss Man figure. Who doesn't remember this classic figure? But the old school flocked Moss Man never included an extra head sculpt.
On February 15th, MattyCollector.com will be releasing the Masters of the Universe Classics Trap Jaw. This is the Club Eternia figure for February 2010...so if you joined the club, it'll be shiping to you. Like the old school Trap Jaw, this figure comes with various interchangeable hands (laser, hook, claw...and an actual hand). He also includes a new head sculpt that you can switch out. Like all of the other MOTU figures, he'll go for $20 each.
The opening for the Under The Influence: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe art show will take place at Gallery1988:Los Angeles on January 8th from 7PM until 10PM. There will be around 100 artists reinterpreting and paying tribute to the MOTU brand. The show will run from January 8th until January 29th, 2010.

MattyCollector.com has announced a trio of Masters of the Universe releases set for January 15, 2010. The first figures dropped in the new year include a re-release of Beast Man (for those who didn't pick it up the first time around), and the first offering of both Princess Adora and Battle Armor He-Man.
I know that collectors have been anticipating the Battle Armor He-Man figure. It was one of my favorites as a kid, but it sounds like they redesigned the damaged plates (you can apparently swap them out).
Mattel has made their 12" tall General Zod action figure available through MattyCollector.com. For $60 each, you get a figure that sports Superman II accurate attire, an extra set of hands, display stand and two "Crude Noisemaker" weapons.
If you grew up during the 1970's or 1980's, you probably remember the 8" tall clothed action figures. Mattel has gone back in time for design inspiration and come up with heroes based on the look of those vintage figures for a brand-new line called Retro-Action DC Super Heroes.
These are prototype images, but Green Arrow will be released first. The figure will be a part of the special December 23rd offering on MattyCollector.com (normal start time of noon EST). It will be followed by a line at Toys "R" Us and select online retailers coming this spring.
Mattel has announced that Battle Cat will be the first beast figure released from the Masters Of The Universe line. This fully-articulated figure has been crafted so He-Man fits in the saddle. The Battle Cat comes with removable armor and helmet, and his saddle holds the Sword of Power. Look for it to be released on Monday February 15th.
Mattel (via their MattyCollector.com site) will be releasing a number of new figures later today - noon EST. A pair of Masters of the Universe Classics figures will be dropped - Teela the Warrior Goddess and Zodak the Mystic Enforcer ($20 each). They will also release a pair of Ray Stanz figures (6" and 12") from their Ghostbusters license for $20 and $60 respectively.
