LEGO never launched He-Man Masters of the Universe set. An artist called Gregos Thomas had designed MOTU in LEGO form in 2014. He even had rendition of the MOTU minifigs in the form of LEGO blind bags check list. POGO an infamous bootleg maker located in Zhejiang, China had picked up the designs and worked on it. According to POGO source, it took them two and the half months in designing the molding because there were no existing pieces for them to copy. What you see here were the prototype of the armor, weapons for MOTU. Kudos to designers and engineers who worked on the molding. Just wish the end result would be as good as Gregos Thomas’s original design.
