Mattel reveals the next MOTU Classics Quarterly Variant!
Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Mattel once again rewarded subscribers by sending them an e-mail revealing the next Quarterly Variant in the Masters of the Universe Classics toy line. I don’t think there’s really any need to keep it a secret, since it no doubt hit the web the second people started getting the e-mails, so there he is…Dragon Blaster Skeletor!
We’ve known for a week or so that this reveal would be coming soon, and many have been speculating that this would indeed be a Skeletor variant. Many rumors were pointing to either New Adventures Skeletor or Dragon Blaster Skeletor, the latter of which turned out to be correct.
He makes total sense for 2012. We already received Thunder Punch He-Man this year, and in the vintage line Dragon Blaster Skeletor was released alongside him. Also, this is a very heavily dragon themed year with Draego-Man already released and Granamyr coming later in the year. It’s kind of cool to add this version of Skelly to that group.
I think he looks great, and I’m excited to check him out in person. How about the rest of you? What do you think?
