DC Entertainment and Mattel are joining forces to bring fans of the INJUSTICE Digital First comics and anyone who’s ever screamed “I Have the Power!” at the top of their lungs—an epic quest for the fate of a world in INJUSTICE VS. HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.
This six-issue miniseries will be written by Tim Seeley, who’s no stranger to writing high-octane adventure stories at DC as the writer for DC titles such as GRAYSON, NIGHTWING and GREEN LANTERNS. Seeley teams up with fan-favorite artist Freddie E. Williams II, himself no stranger to the action and dangers of Eternia, having provided the art for 2016’s HE-MAN/THUNDERCATS miniseries. Williams’ distinctive art style has also thrilled fans on other crossovers like the smash-hit BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES in 2015 and its follow-up sequel in 2017.
Believing He-Man and the Masters of the Universe defeated, a robotic impostor has seized control of Eternia—but not for long! After freeing his kingdom from this strongman’s rule, He-Man learns not everyone is pleased to see the pretender deposed—but Adam knows the value of freedom. When heroes from another dimension ask his aid in deposing a superhero turned dictator, he agrees. Teaming up with Batman against the Superman of the Injustice Universe, He-Man and his new allies face dangerous and familiar enemies in a battle where no world is safe!
INJUSTICE VS. HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #1 arrives at comic book retailers and via digital download on July 18, 2018. Check out the website at www.dccomics.com or the DC YouTube channel for the latest news on this crossover blockbuster and the latest from the DC Universe.

Super7 made a big splash when they took over Masters of the Universe from MattyCollector, but they’ve been working hard to expand their product offering and their display at Toy Fair showed the results of those efforts.
On the Masters of the Universe side of things, their previously shown Classic and Deluxe Classics were on display as well as their new Filmation ‘vintage’ style figures. Also on display was Masters glassware and ReAction style figures.
The surprise of the show was a number of Transformers based items. From glassware, Halloween buckets, Transformers character ‘Keshi’ blind boxed minifigures to awesome 12″ ‘Super Cyborg’ Megatron and Optimus Prime there was certainly more than meets the eye to the Super7 display.
Also ReAction figures had a great showing with new Universal Monsters, Planets of the Apes, Robotech, Misfits and more making a strong showing. ReAction is in great hands being back at Super7.
This is just a quick summary of the product on hand at the show. See it all in the gallery below.

A few years ago while walking the rows and rows of the toy fair, I stumbled across the booth of The Loyal Subjects – and now they’re a must stop each year. This year was no exception and I was treated to the latest vinyl figures from Masters of the Universe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G. I. Joe (including vehicles!!), Power Rangers, My Little Pony, Mr. Potato Head and Transformers.
The highlights of the display were the Masters of the Universe figures and the Joe vehicles. I was surprised by how well the vehicles translated to this style – I hope these are succesful and other properties do similar.
Check out all the newest Loyal Subjects toys from toy fair in the gallery.
