Masters of the Universe Origins Prince and Cringer Two-Pack
Mattel is returning to Eternia with new Masters of the Universe figures including the return of Prince Adam and Cringer.

Toy Collectors - can you name a more iconic TV duo than Prince Adam and Cringer from Masters of the Universe? Okay, apart from Sooty and Sweep. Right and there’s Chip ‘n’ Dale too. Oh sure, there’s Tom and Jerry. Instead - can you name a more iconic duo where one of them is a green tiger and the other guy transforms into someone that looks like he’s fresh from the set of Gladiators?


What is the Masters of the Universe Origins Prince and Cringer Two-Pack?


Mattel has just unveiled the latest entry in its Mattel Origins line, inspired by the original Masters of the Universe cartoons - which you can read all about in the February issue of Collectors Gazette. The MOTU Origins two-pack features brave Prince Adam, who can transform into the mighty He-Man, and his loyal but cowardly companion Cringer, who turns into the courageous Cringer.


Designed at 5.5-inch scale, like the classics, but with the posing possibilities of more modern action figures, each of the two figures has at least 16 articulated joints and a content-accurate appearance with an alternate head. The alternate head for Cringer has a frightened expression with an articulated jaw. A Power Sword accessory for Prince Adam and a swappable hand to hold it completes the pack.
