Once a corny memory of childhoods long over, Masters of the Universe was relaunched in the Summer of 2002 after years of planning to an eager toy-buying public. By employing The Four Horsemen, celebrated ex-McFarlane Toys sculptors, Mattel recreated an old, fairly dated concept and brought it to the 21st Century with a whole new eye for detail.
After dozens of figures in the first year, though, the line seems to be in for a rocky future with some stores dropping it and new information being extremely hard to come by. Year Two for Masters will start to focus on the battles with the Snake Men in the Fall of 2003. Future expansions for the line are said to include Hordak and The Evil Horde, but the line seems to be in some state of revision with many items that may never see release. Also in 2003, it was announced that the name Fisto was lost, and the old character will be eventually renamed as Battle Fist.
Our archives have gotten out of date as of late, so please be sure to check out our links for additional resources on this expansive toy line.
