Border Patrol: Masters of the Universe Classics 200X Merman, Rio Blast, and Mosquitor

Border Patrol Masters of the Universe Classics 200X Merman Rio Blast and Mosquitor

It’s hard to make sense of how Mattel marketed Masters of the Universe Classics with respect to its earlier 200X toys. At first, they catered to 200X fans by including alternate, 200X-inspired heads. Then, they “banned” them, citing both cost concerns and upper management’s dislike of the aesthetics. And finally, with the line nearing its end, they decided to milk 200X by offering the 6-figure 200X sub. Along the way, there’s been missed opportunities, and it’s been up to customizers to fill those gaps.
