‘He-Man: Masters of the Universe’ action figures from Mondo

Mondo, the Austin-based boutique art house behind so many amazing limited edition pop culture posters (and an assortment of other collectibles), has a new line of toys incoming. He-Man toys.

If that fact alone isn’t enough to get your ’80s fandom radar screaming, here’s an extremely content-appropriate trailer.

For anyone who’s missing the joke here, this is riffing on an actual He-Man toy commercial from the 1980s. Those adults are there for a reason though; these toys aren’t necessarily for kids.

Mondo tends to deal primarily in high-end collectibles, and the first two releases in this new Masters of the Universe line reflect that: The He-Man figure is priced at $160 and the Mondo-exclusive He-Man — which includes a bonus, swappable Skeletor head — is priced at $165.

Pre-orders can be placed here. Check out the figure below.

The 1/6-scale figure has more than 30 points of articulation, features fabric clothing, and comes with a whole mess of accessories, as you can see. The green Skeletor head in the image above is the only added piece that’s exclusive to the slightly pricier Mondo set. Both versions are otherwise the same.

He-Man is only the first action figure in the new toy line. Man-At-Arms, Mer-Man, and — of course — Skeletor are all confirmed. The Mondo-exclusive Skeletor head in the He-Man set actually goes with the upcoming Skeletor figure.

Here are some looks at concept art and prototypes for the future releases.
