Where have I been, you ask? Busy! Working on getting more content up.
Anyway, in the meantime here are some cool pics of the new upcoming Weapons Pack, the Shadow Beast, and the new TRU 2-packs, all courtesy of He-Man.org member TokyoNever, who got them from “a Turkish contact” that he/she “met on YouTube.” Huh.

Here’s the Shadow Beast bio:
Real name: Varies
Great ape-like beasts who live in tribes throughout the dark hemisphere. Shadow Beasts can only come out in the absence of light. Originally created by Count Marzo, as a weapon to use against his enemies, the beasts were driven back by Prince Keldor and Randor and forced to reside in the shadow of Mount Barathrum. There they developed a long standing hatred of both the Human and Gar race. Easily manipulated, the ever growing colony of Beasts was later controlled by Beast Man in the service of Skeletor to take down Eternos Palace. With their great strength and stealth-like appearance, Shadow Beasts are more than a match for most heroic warriors!
- I’m sure a lot of people are going to say, “What’s with the art on the 2-packs?” but I think they were going for a 1980s MOTU minicomic/Curt Swan vibe. Viewed from that perspective, I think the Aquaman/Stratos pack is fine, but there’s no excuse for that Mer-Man with the goofy sword and, oh yeah, he’s green. The whole point of the new figure is that he’s blue. They got the Stratos colors right. I’m still not sure if I’ll be getting either of these…I had hoped for a more teal Mer-Man, not a Faker-blue one.
- Lots to say on the Shadow Beast bio, but we’ll get to that when the time comes.
