Mattel's Masters of the Universe: Eternia Minis arrived in stores around September of last year and proved to pretty popular. Two series of figures made it to shelves last year along with two multi-packs, mostly comprised of repacks, that showed up at Walmart.com. Now that Mattel's MOTU products are available everywhere there is more MOTU product to go around and today I'm checking out the first 2021 Eternia Minis release I've been able to acquire: The Slime Pit Multipack! Currently Mattel is releasing the Eternia Minis on small, single blister cards but originally it seemed the plan for series 3 was to feature the figures in miniature Slime Pit containers. I'm not sure if those are still coming out or not but clearly this Slime Pit Multipack was intended to tie in with the series 3 Slime Pit theme. This is a very collector friendly boxed set of four figures (He-Man, Horde Zombie Buzz-Off, Horde Zombie Zodac, and Teela). Let's take a look at these little Eternians after the break and see if they still have the power despite their diminuitive size...
* Buzz-Off comes with his axe though it's now molded in green. I guess it's covered in slime, too.
* Zodac's helmet is very cool. It's so funny that he has a helmet that obscures most of his head and yet runs around in some armor and furry trunks.
* The original figure that was released on MattyCollector in a 2-pack with Beast Man came with a pistol and a staff but this version just comes with the pistol. It's oversized and stylized but I like the exaggerated barrel and fins.
* Teela is the first truly new figure here (though there is a single-carded Anti-Eternia Teela that's floating around right now, too) and it's cool to see a female released in the line. There was a She-Ra from the never released MOTU Minis series 2 that sneaked out and Teela definitely takes after her style wise. The paint's fairly elaborate and while she's not as buff as her male counterparts she is quite stylized. She movies like the rest of the figures in the line as well, so that's cool.
* The portrait makes Teela look aggravated, but that seems about right. She's probably pissed off at Prince Adam for just lazing around or something. The paint on the face is neat and clean and I like the design of her hair and tiara.
* Teela comes with a pint-sized Staff of Ka to aid her in making the Horde, the Evil Warriors, and any other villainous foes of the good people of Eternia miserable.
