    Notes from the Team: With Filmation 80s cartoons as our inspiration, in 2024 we introduce the CARTOON COLLECTION and bring back MOTU characters in their original content-based looks. Character bodies have been updated to better represent their inspirations – straighter legs to stand upright and rounded shoulders/updated torso muscles so the musculature of the figure is more proportionate.Each figure now comes with a brand new accessory straight from 80’s animated content, while the back of package artwork recreates specific scenes from those favorite episodes. Cartoon Collection figures are still compatible with existing Origins figures to continue that swappable mix & match play.We are also updating our wave cadence in 2024, so in addition to 2 new Cartoon Collection characters in each wave, we will also have 1 Fan-Favorite reissue per wave to give everyone a second opportunity to fill those gaps in their collections. Fans can also expect more waves this year than in years previous.In addition to mainline offerings, we are releasing several fun exclusives you can find at the below retailers. At Target we’re partnering with the Stranger Things crew to unveil a killer collaboration straight from the upside down – Skeletor and the Demogorgon! Completionists will also be able to find previous fan-desired characters we’re bringing back like Trap Jaw and King Randor. And lastly more Snake Men are joining the fray at Walmart, including a character many eagle-eyed fans may recognize from packaging – the Necro-Conda!
