And yes, it is awesome. Pop Culture Shock Collectibles has revealed their latest bust, Skeletor, from Masters of the Universe. Did you ever know you needed this? If you’re ready to own a life-size bust of the lord of destruction, you might want to prepare your poor wallet: retail price is $675. So while that’s not something I’ll be pre-ordering anytime soon, if you’re up for the adventure, the pre-order period opens at 3pm on August 26th. Then again, there is an option for a version with LED eyes, so at night he can keep watch over you with his evil red gaze. Pleasant! Read more…

LEGO Castle Grayskull is Amazing

Once again, LEGO fans prove their mettle in fantastic ways: David Frank has put together a LEGO version of the classic toy Castle Grayskull from Masters of the Universe. It’s delightfully chunky-looking and captures the spirit of the original perfectly. It has all the internals as well, and is leaving me wondering how he accomplished some of those details. Great job with hiding the studs, too! Take a look at some more images of the castle below the jump, and then try not to pull out that bin of LEGO bricks you have stashed in the attic. Read more…

Snout Spout: His knock out nose knocks evil out! You can tell the design department of Mattel was bored to death of Masters of the Universe by 1986 when this commercial came out. I can just see some poor child at Christmas yelping “Mommy why did you get me an elephant? I wanted He-Man!” Don’t get me wrong as a toy it looks very clever but our pachyderm friend seems somewhat out of place with the other members of the Masters of the Universe. In fact the character wasn’t even shown in the series until after the toy came out (you can tell that merchandising was more important than story telling). Read more…

Watch Out He-Man — It’s Trap Jaw! (String Not Included)

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 7, 2009 in Animation, Hobbies and Collections

The year is 1983 and as an art school student me and my buds are convinced that the era we were in was a low point for animation — except for Anime! Even though a generation has grown up loving He-Man we tested the dude, because his D&D routine wasn’t half as cool as Star Blazers or Mobile Suit Gundam. Looking back I still stand by my thesis of the lack of quality in Filmation productions, but now I can see how a generation of kids could look fondly back on this stuff. Read more…
