TF13: Comic Images Has The Power
New Masters of the Universe Plush Series...
Comic Images, best known for their extensive plush line of Star Wars characters, is tapping 80's nostalgia by bringing six Masters of the Universe plush toys to market. Five characters – He-Man, Skeletor, Beast Man, Trap Jaw and Battle Cat – are rendered in Comic Images’ own classic 7-inch Super-Deformed style, featuring giant heads on tiny bodies. This will be the first time that plush versions of MOTU characters – as well as He-Man’s 30-inch iconic sword – will be available at brick and mortar stores, as well as online pop culture retailers.
"Mention Masters of the Universe at a cocktail party or BBQ and it is amazing what happens," said Alan Gordon, president of Comic Images. "You can almost see full grown men’s faces transform back to their youth with the memories of pretending to vanquish Skeletor with He-Man’s sword. It is a cultural touch point for 30- and 40-somethings and now they want to share it with their kids."
MOTU Super-Deformed Plush has a suggested retail price of $9.99 - $11.99. All will be available at traditional and online retailers.
