Sir Laser-Lot 2014 MOTU Classics Figure
Sir Laser Lot action figure from the Masters of the Universe Classics line.
The chivalrous Sir Laser-Lot was the mightiest of King Grayskull’s knights on the continent of Preternia. A master of weapons and a skilled combatant, he wore a magical suit of armor powered by the Gem of Tamadge, giving him enhanced strength and the ability to project blasts of energy. Sir Laser-Lot’s legendary deeds inspired King He-Man to send his Time Agent, John Spector, to save him at the moment of his historical death and bring him to the future. Having fought in the First Ultimate Battleground, Sir Laser-Lot accepted his new role and became the new Man-At-Arms. He took the charge of training the next generation of Royal Guards and He-Man’s young son Prince Dare with long-forgotten skills. Sir Laser-Lot fought in the Third Ultimate Battleground alongside the Masters of the Universe against the Unnamed One.
Across the continent of Preternia™, the mightiest of King Grayskull’s Knights was Sir Laser-Lot™, a master of weapons and hand-to-hand fighting techniques. He wore an enchanted suit of armor powered by the great Gem of Tamadge which enhanced his strength and let him unleash powerful energy blasts. So legendary were his deeds that the future king He-Man® sent one of his loyal Time Agents into the past to bring Sir Laser-Lot™ forward to his time. Here, Sir Laser-Lot™ became the King’s new Man-At-Arms®, training both the Royal Guards and the King’s young son Dare in ancient battle techniques. Sir Laser-Lot™ uses his energy blade to fight for chivalry and justice in any time.
The Masters of the Universe Classics line, launched in 2008, is a new line of action figures based on the classic characters from all aspects of the Masters of the Universe franchise. Available solely from Mattel’s website and aimed purely at collectors, the line also includes biographical descriptions of the characters designed to tie the diverging aspects of the mythos together.
Based on the look of the original 1980s MOTU toys, this new toy line was aimed primarily at the adult toy collector market, often available only through subscriptions (from MattyCollector). Sculpted by the Four Horsemen, these toys were updated versions of previous figures as well as characters that never before had an action figure made of them; such as Filmation’s Queen Marlena, Fang-Man, Lizard-Man, Count Marzo, Granamyr, and many others. The toy line featured many redesigned and updated action figures from the original action-figure line from the 1980s, but it also included characters from She-Ra: Princess of Power (Adora, Madame Razz, Scorpia, Shadow Weaver, and others), The New Adventures of He-Man (Mara, Crita, and more), and the Mike Young Productions series from 2002 (Faceless One, Chief Carnivus, King Chooblah, Ceratus, and others). As the line progressed, characters from all versions of MOTU lore were included, from such things such as prototypes and concept art (He-Ro, Eldor, Demo-Man, Gygor, Vykor, and others), box art from vehicles and model kits (Sky High and the Fighting Foe Men), mini comics (the Goddess, Geldor, and Procrustus), and other books, comics, and media (Despara, Strobo, Goat-Man, and more). There were also newly created figures, exclusive to the Classics toy line, such as Draego-Man, Cy-Chop, Castle Grayskullman, and others. In February 2010, the figures of He-Man and Skeletor were available as Toys “R” Us exclusives packed in two-packs with Superman and Lex Luthor, respectively, from Mattel’s DC Universe Classics action figure line; with this dual line expanded to include two-packs featuring Aquaman/Mer-Man, Hawkman/Stratos, Bizarro/Faker, Supergirl/She-Ra, and Green Lantern/Zodac.
Masters of the Universe Classics surpassed the original 1980s toy line in terms of length, running continuously for seven years with more than 150 different figures produced since its launch in August 2008. Along with the Classics series, MOTU Minis and Giants figures were also released in 2014 and 2015. In 2016, Mattel ended production on the MOTU Classics and MattyCollector.com’s Club Grayskull series, with the production company Super7 now taking over the Masters of the Universe license.
