Hi MOTU Fans! We wanted to share the final packaging of the MOTU Ultimate Figures with you. He-Man, Skeletor, Faker, Ram Man, and Teela will be blister packaged with their accessories on a vintage style exploding background backing card and logo treatment. Included with each character is a mini-comic style backing card with the character bio on one side and a brand new mini-comic cover style artwork on the other. The back side of the backing card will have all new characteraction artwork across the top on a classic 8-back influenced design.
We also have new Priority International Mail rates that are 20% lower than previously used. We will also be refunding the difference to all existing international orders based on these new rates over the coming weeks.
The pre-order for the Ultimates figures and other new MOTU items has been extended in the Super7 Webstore until 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, December 4th.
By the Power of Grayskull!”
Also, Super7 has posted on Facebook that these are resealable. See the Four Horsemen’s Mythic Legions for an example of mock-clamshell packaging. The blister on the front is a entire piece of plastic with flanges around all four sides, which allows a collector to slide the cardback in and out, and then remove or replace the figure and accessories
