As Comic-Con gets under way in San Diego this week, there are countless exclusives that make the annual pilgrimage to the convention totally worth it for fans. And if you grew up in the ’80s playing with Masters of the Universe toys, this Chia Pet version of Moss Man might singlehandedly justify your entire trip.
If you’re unfamiliar with Moss Man, he was part of Skeletor’s crew and used his lush green coat to camouflage himself in foliage. To the best of our knowledge, he was also the only action figure to actually come flocked in fake green moss, which makes him a perfect candidate for the Chia Pet treatment. You know the drill, you soak the included seeds in water, spread them all over his ceramic body, and in a couple of weeks he’ll sprout an authentic living green coat.
Available exclusively from Super7’s ‘Skeletor’s Lair Pop-Up Shop‘ that will be open in San Diego during the convention, the Moss Man Chia Pet will sell for $US30 — green thumb not included, but probably also not necessary. [Super7 via He-Man.org]
