Mattel releases pics of Battle Cat

As every other toy blog posted way before me, Mattel has released images of Masters of the Universe Classics Battle Cat in package. (Click for a slightly larger image.)



Looks good, though as Mattel mentioned before in a Facebook post, it looks like the helmet tends to fall off during shipping. I can’t read the bio, but fortunately MegaGearMax of deciphered it:

A member of the Green Tiger Tribe, Cringer was saved from a ___________ attack by a young Prince Adam and afterwards became his devoted companion for life. He assisted Adam during his quest to unite both halves of the Power Sword of He and afterwards was enhanced by its power to become Battle Cat the fighting tiger of He-Man. Cringer is one of only a handful of allies who knows Adam’s secret and fights alongside the other Masters of the Universe, carrying He-Man into battle against the forces of evil.

No one can figure out what Cringer was saved from…I’m seeing “parek-mare,” but what the hell is that?

Anyway, Battle Cat looks fantastic (note the divots in the saddle for He-Man’s furry underwear). I only hope they’re producing enough of them, or there might be a lot of mad people come February.

    A parek-narr is a rhinocerous-like creature that served Beast-Man in the 200x cartoon series

  2. Looks good, but I'm holding out for a Panthor. He can't be too far behind.

    i predict battle cat sets a new motuc sell-out record. seriously.

  4. Mark

    @Poe: I totally gree with you 100%.

  5. Poe

    Battle Cat is one case where I completely prefer the original/MOTUC design to the 200X version. I find the armor much more unique and interesting, particularly the helmet.

  6. Mark

    I will be putting some MOTUC figs on ebay later today so if any of you are after them. Check out markm9157 on ebay.

  7. Mysterious Stranger

    King Grayskull is getting a re-release too.

    I want a Battle Cat but I missed out on the reissue He-Man so it depends on whether or not I can find one on the secondary market for a decent price.

    And the helmet not staying in place makes me wonder how tight the actual fit will be on the head. If its coming that loose in transit how loose will it be when its sitting on the head correctly? Something to maybe Ask Matty?

  8. Wow! That looks amazing!!!

  9. Beastman… really… yay… Though, I wasn't expecting him quite so soon. My BM barely stands up his leg is so loose. I don't think its stuck in there enough. I have to pose him in a squatting position getting the leg part to stick under his loin cloth. Its the only problem I've had thus far with MOTUC. *knock on wood*

    So I guess for Jan its BA He-Man and Beastman, in addition to Adora. Here I was thinking I was going to get off cheap before Feb!

    Does Battle cat have a torso hinge so he can do pouncing poses?Anyways,a good looking figure!

  11. Poe

    According to a post by Toy Guru on (see my Twitter feed for the link), Beast Man is scheduled to be re-released in January.

    I'm thinking of getting one, actually, because my BM's knees are pretty loose…

  12. Poe

    @Mario: And don't forget the battle stands. I'll be getting at least one pack of those.

    As for other characters…there are a few surprises spread around the site!

  13. Mario

    Trap-Jaw & Battle Cat on the same day… chaos shall ensue!

    That Prime Evil is quite cool, too. What other new 80's characters are around the site?

  14. Mark

    As with all the other MOTUC figures it looks great.

  15. BC looks fantastic! I had in my mind that they'd be putting him in a box similar to the '80s release, but this is more in keeping with the rest of the line. I'm surprised they didn't wrap one of those tiny rubber bands around his helmet. Then again, anyone putting him up for display might complain. Even if the helmet isn't on all the way, at least its on! 😉 I certainly hope they made enough of these guys. "Ideally" 1:1 ratio for every He-Man they've made so far…

  16. Thomas B

    i'll be getting 2 for sure.

    it looks perfect to me! bring on panthor and everything else!!!

    if BC doesnt sell out in a couple hours i will be amazed

  17. DankOne

    That looks sick!! Bring on Feb!
