It's an acronym apocalypse as Mattel presents TRU DCUC vs MOTUC! You know just two days after I decide that I'm officially quitting DC Universe Classics, Mattel does it's best to lure me back in. Sort of...

Remember all that scuttlebutt about how Masters of the Universe wasn't a "retail" line. Well obviously Mattel is realizing that there is a mass appeal to MOTUC and is starting to test the waters. What with? Well it's a "Comic pack" of DCUC versus MOTUC.

For those not in the know, at one point DC Comics produced a MOTU comic and they had a couple of crossover issues. ToyFare just confirmed that at least one pack is coming (Superman versus He-Man) and it's going to be a Toys R' Us exclusive. Furthermore, a quick scan of Ebay reveals a Skeletor in matching "comic" colors.

I actually applaud Mattel for cribbing Hasbro's "comic pack" idea and I think it works for their MOTU and DCUC properties. The one real problem, is that DCUC and MOTUC figures don't really mesh. MOTUC is quite a bit larger. That said, despite the fact that these figures are basic repaints of MOTUC figures in "comic" colors, I see little to complain about with these sets. Even the $30 price tag seems reasonable.

I'll definitely pick them up if I see them. I dig the glowing power swords. It's a cool alternate He-Man and Skeletor. I have no real use for another Superman, but that's never stopped me from having to pick one up. I wonder who comes with Skeletor?

MOTUC vs DCUC....WTF?!?

(LOL!)

ABBREVIATIONS ABOUND!

Seriously, I love the idea. However...they aren't really...in scale to each other. It's like packaging Battle Cat with Booster Gold of the JLU line...doesn't quite look right.

TRUs prices are outrageous for some of their exclusives. $59.99 for the BATTLE OF METROPOLIS 7-pack? Don't think so. BUT for $29.99, this I might have to pick up just because I've always wanted (BUT NEVER OWNED) He-Man's first appearance in DC COMICS PRESENTS.

First Mortal Kombat, now Master of the Universe. DC look like a bunch of bullies. What next? DC vs. Restaurant icons?

I love Superman, I love He-Man...I'M BUYING IT!

And Tommy, there is actually a comic of this, so it's not just a marketing gimmick:

It was a way to introduce the line, sure. But it worked IMO. I have this issue and it's pretty cool. I sort of wish that DC would take back the rights and put more books out like the original series.

The Skeletor and Lex Luthor 2-Pack looks kind of cool too.
