Mattel Unveils New ‘Masters of the Universe’ 30th Anniversary Art
Mattel's released new Masters of the Universe art depicting He-Man, Skeletor, Beast Man, Man-At-Arms, Battlecat and more in a contemporary style befitting the franchise's 30th anniversary. Illustrated by Alvin Lee, who worked with Mattel Staff Product Designers Gabriel De La Torre and Raymond Makowski, the new art kind of blends the classic MoTU style with the 2002 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series and of of course the fan-driven Masters of the Universe Classics toy line by the Four Horsemen and sold through MattyCollector.
Gabriel De La Torre, Staff Product Designer from Mattel Entertainment Design, told us, "This 'alt' style to the Classic brand was created as a visual way to re-imagine the vast characters and worlds of Masters of the Universe® with a contemporary edge. This dynamic artwork will be used across multiple categories in consumer products and beyond, celebrating our Masters of the Universe 30th Anniversary program launching in 2012."
The art's set to pop up on licensed products beginning in the new year and continuing through 2012. See the new MoTU 30th anniversary art below:
