Masters of the Universe releases stunning stop-motion fight clip
Mattel released a cool stop-motion animated fight to help celebrate the fact that Masters of the Universe: Revelation can now be found streaming with Netflix! After a lot of anticipation and build-up, the rebooted version of the classic 1980s animated series returned to screens earlier this summer and featured a whole new take on He-Man and the rest of Eternia. This included not only a huge change in tone from that original series, but also a change for each of the characters. Designs that have been immortalized in a new collection of action figures released alongside the debut of the animated series.
As part of a cool way to highlight not only the animated series but the new figures, Masters of the Universe: Revelation shared a cool new promo that sees He-Man, Skeletor, and Evil-Lyn fight before Moss Man steps in to help He-Man during this epic fight. All done entirely with stop-motion animation using the Mattel figures themselves, it’s a cool new take on the franchise that you can check out below:
