Mattel Provides Details on the Unnamed One

Aug. 2nd 2013

Mattel's 2014 Club Eternia subscription program for Masters of the Universe Classics features a bonus figure that's caused quite a stir in the last few weeks. He's called the Unnamed One, and his mysterious nature has left fans more furious than curious. 

The Unnamed One is a character often mentioned in the world of He-Man, but never really introduced or explained. Nothing but questions surround the evil mastermind, and those questions have penetrated into the world of toys as well. Collectors rightfully want to know who or what the Unnamed One will be like in order to determine his validity as a figure and motivator. Mattel has finally revealed a few details, but raised just as many new questions in the process. Read their teaser of the Unnamed One below.  

2014 Club Eternia®: About the Unnamed One™

MOTUC Fans, You probably know by now that the Unnamed One™ is the exclusive figure that only 2014 Club Eternia® subscribers will receive. But here are some things you may not know…

About the Character

So first things first… just who is the Unnamed One™?

For starters, he’s the mastermind behind the Snake Men®, as well as the perpetrator of a whole lot of wayward wickedness throughout the Masters’ world. He was first mentioned in the 1986 mini-comic “The Powers of Grayskull, Part 1″ and he also appears in the bios of the Snake Men® warriors and their rotten-to-the-core leader, King Hssss™. Why? You’ll have to wait until he shows up in your mailbox in 2014 for the full story. What we can tell you now is that his arc is crucial in tying together the entire Masters story.        

About the Figure

  • Befitting this legendary character, his figure is almost completely newly tooled! This isn’t just He-Man® with a new head – his only shared part is the arms.
  • Two heads really are better than one, especially when it comes to the Unnamed One™. He’ll arrive with an alternate noggin (but why??) and two accessories, one of them a magic burst. The question is what wrongdoing was wrought by that magic burst?
  • Like King He-Man™ with a scar over his eye and a beat-up Power Sword™, the Unnamed One™ will feature visual details that help tell the story of his malevolent existence.

Although the Unnamed One™ has remained shrouded in mystery for more than 25 years, we promise all will be revealed with his release as the Club Eternia® exclusive figure in 2014. He’s much more than a collection-essential figure, he’s storyline-essential so don’t miss this opportunity to make him yours. Sign up for a 2014 Club Eternia® subscription today!

These cryptic teasers from Mattel do very little to explain the Unnamed One. We know he's the main villain behind the Snake Men, but that's not exactly new information. We're also told that he's vital to the storyline, but I question how vital could he be if he hasn't noticeably affected it yet? Although I'm not a Masters of the Universe lore expert by any means, I do wonder how this character could be organically slotted into the storyline at this point.

Mattel did give a few details on the figure itself, and those are a bit more useful. He's set to include a pair of heads, some kind of important magic burst, and visual details that will help tell his story. Use that information to speculate as you'd like, because I'm not able to put together a solution to this equation just yet. 

There's really only one way to figure this puzzle out, and that's to ensure the 2014 Club Eternia subscription is a success. If you're on the edge about subscribing this year, I can confidently say that it's on pace to be one of the best years yet in this collector's opinion. I have a feeling the Unnamed One is really going to wow us all, and I can't wait to see him unveiled and maybe even named.
