San Diego Comic-Con is nearly upon us, albeit in the form of a virtual convention dubbed Comic-Con at Home. There won’t be a show floor for fans to pick up merchandise from their favorite vendor booths, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to fight against hordes of fans trying to get their hands on the latest exclusive collectibles created just for Comic-Con. In fact, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at some of the upcoming offerings from Mondo.
This year, Mondo is expanding their ever-growing line of collectible Tiki Mugs. Since these are Comic-Con exclusives, it only makes sense that Marvel Comics characters are getting the Tiki Mug treatment. Venom, Thanos and MODOK are all getting special glaze color variant Tiki Mugs. But that’s not all, because Mondo is also releasing the latest figure in their Masters of the Universe MOTUbi line, with Mer-Man joining the collection. Check out some Mondo 2020 Comic-Con exclusives below. Read More »

It’s been a long road for the Uncharted video game franchise to make it to the big screen. Sony has gone through several directors, the most recently departed being Travis Knight, who had just replaced Dan Trachtenberg. Last we heard, Venom director Ruben Fleischer was being eyed to take over the production, but it looks like Sony Pictures doesn’t think they’ll meet the previous set release date of December 18, 2020. The studio has pushed the movie back to spring 2021, bumping their gestating Masters of the Universe movie off the release calendar. Find out more below. Read More »

Sony has been developing its Masters of the Universe reboot since 2007, hoping to launch a new blockbuster franchise. But now the studio is considering avoiding a potential box office flop by dumping the movie right on Netflix. While Sony still has a stake in Spider-Man, its non-Spidey franchises haven’t done so well. Case in point: this year’s Men In Black: International was panned by critics and flopped at the box office. While nothing is official yet, a new report reveals Sony is considering taking Masters of the Universe right to streaming to avoid a repeat of the Men of Black incident.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith announced at Power-Con that he will act as executive producer and showrunner on a new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series at Netflix that will pick up where the original series left off back in 1985.

Transformers: The Movie may have come to the big screen in 1986, but it wasn’t until 1987 that we got the first live-action movie based on a line of action figures in the form of Masters of the Universe. Inspired by the toys and animated series with the much more manly title of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, this movie has a few characters fans love, and some random ass characters that no one gives a shit about taking up 50% of the film’s running time. And that’s just one of the problems, as pointed out in the Masters of the Universe Honest Trailer. Read More »

If you were a kid in the 1980s, there’s a good chance that at one time you were desperate to play with the toys from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. These classic ripped action figures were a staple of toys during that decade, and in recent years, the toy company Super 7 has been releasing new, retro versions of those figures for collectors. But what are action figures without playsets? Thankfully, Super 7 also has you covered there.
After releasing a Castle Grayskull playset a few years ago for their Masters of the Universe Collector’s Choice action figure line, Super 7 is back with an even bigger playset of Skeletor’s menacing fortress known as Snake Mountain. And when we say bigger, we mean it stands three feet tall and four feet wide when fully opened up. And it comes with all the coolest accessories. Read More »
Noah Centineo, the internet’s boyfriend who may or may not be a young clone of Mark Ruffalo, might be headed to Eternia. The To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before actor is being sought after to play He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. This would certainly be a far cry from the last live-action version of He-Man, played by Dolph Lundgren in 1987.
