Mine were stolen by my aunt who exchanged them for drugs or drug money. At least that's what I've been told. I wasn't told as a kid though. The moral is that He-Man=drugs.

Then you should pick up the DVD's ASAP. The show was great and building up to a confrontation against Hordak. Unfortunately, Mattel botched the toy line so Cartoon Network cancelled the show.

Hey, that's the same thing that happened to the new Thundercats, except it was Bandai...

I never consistently saw He-Man as a kid. I always loved the toys though. Regretted never seeing the series that came out w/ the new designs.

I know. I was so depressed when that show crashed and burned under similar circumstances.

Well that wasn't the first re-design. In 1989 there was The New Adventures of He-Man. But it really sucked and died a quick death.

I'm just surprised I dont remember it. I was 10 in '89. I might've just blocked out the whole thing so that I wouldn't have to commit suicide due to severe trauma.

Yup. And if you think that's bad, check out how he looked as Adam.



Mercifully, Skeletor saw him transform into He-Man so he never became Adam ever again.

I was around 8 and wish I could forget that show ever existed.

Jesus. I've never even heard of that He-Man. I was 3 in 1989. Guess it never got reruns years later when I watched He-Man here and there...lol.

I hated alot of the designs from the 200x line, but that cartoon was pretty damn awesome.

I have no faith in a film. Mattel will fuck it all up, like they do everything else they lay their hands on.

I must say this is a pretty cool hybrid of MOTU, New Adventures, and 2002 He-Man:



I'd be cool with him looking like that in the movie.

It would be cool, if they actually started the franchise with King Grayskull and Hordak. Never happen, but it would be awesome.

I wonder if they are gonna use the Grayskull: Masters of the Universe script reviewed over at Latino Review. They seemed to have pulled all traces of it from their site. Even the original link is dead. If they use that script, the film stands a chance at being all kinds of badass.

Unless Mattel sticks to their guns about kiddifying the new movie.

That's exactly how that script began.

The new comic book sounds pretty cool. Anybody read it?

Word is the script from Alex Litvak and Mike Finch is a hot one and Sony wants to get this thing filmed.

Here's hoping it's as good as the script by Justin Marks.

Some of the newer online only toys are pretty cool looking updates of the original toys. See here Don't have any but if I collected He-Man stuff, I'd probably love it.

It'd be cool if Dolph appeared as King Randor or King Grayskull himself:
