Ruler of the Sun, Sun-Man has joined forces with He-Man in the battle against evil. This legendary hero was created in 1985 by a mother who saw a need for diversity in the action figure space, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him to the Masters of the Universe family!
WELCOME OUR NEW HERO
This figure features 16 points of articulation, swappable heads, hands, and accessories. The packaging pays homage to Sun-Man’s origin story and features deluxe artwork and an original comic.
THE FUTURE OF ETERNIA IS BRIGHTER THAN EVER
There’s no end to what you can do when good people unite, and with Sun-Man, the light shines ever so bright.
MEET YLA EASON
Behind every superhero is a mom. And when a three-year-old boy feared he could never be a superhero because of his skin color, his mother took action. Yla Eason created Sun-Man to address the lack of representation in comics and action figures in the 1980s. We couldn’t be prouder to reintroduce Sun-Man, and his story, to you today!
Every superhero needs a superpower, and Yla found that with Ed Duncan, SVP, Head of Design at Mattel. Because her story resonated with him in a way that nothing had before, Ed reached out to Yla to discuss bringing Sun-Man into He-Man’s universe (MOTU). To him, this project was about more than creating a toy—it was about recognizing the importance of inclusivity.
