Today we will be taking a look at the new King Grayskull from the Masters of the Universe Masterverse line. This is how King Greyskull appeared in the 2nd half of the Revelations Netflix show. Masterverse is an exciting new line of Masters of the Universe® action figures, and its first wave celebrates the release of a thrilling Masters of the Universe® reboot: the Netflix animated series, Revelation!
PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
The Masterverse box is a nice size angled box, at the top, it tells you the figure has 30 points of articulation. Below that we have a big window that showcases the figure and the accessories, this box is just a little larger than the normal figure boxes as King Greyskull comes with more accessories than most other figures. To the right of the window, we have a little Netflix flag, this is to let us know that this figure is based on his look from the Kevin Smith Netflix show. At the bottom of the box, we have the Masters of the Universe Revelation logo, below that we have King Greyskull’s name. Turning the box to the side we have King Greyskull’s name. The side of the box also lets us know that he is the “Heroic Ancestor of He-Man!”. On the back of the box, we have some amazing artwork of King Greyskull. Next to the artwork, we have a bio, “Since the dawn of Eternia, there has always been a hero to protect the planet’s sacred magic. The first of those heroes - and the first to hold the mantle of He-Man - was King Greyskull. Now resting alongside the other heroes in Preternia, King Greyskull holds the key for the adventures to return to Eternia and save the magic from vanishing into oblivion” Below that, we have pictures of some other figures you can pick up. Turning the box around one more time we have some more artwork of King Greyskull.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Taking King Greyskull out of the box we can see that Mattel did a pretty good job making him look like how he did in the Netflix show. The Cape itself has a bendy wire in it so you can get it into all the action poses you would like.
ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
King Greyskull comes with an Alt head, an open left hand, a closed right fist, a shield, the good side of the power sword, and the evil side of the power sword.
