Long ago, in a time long forgotten, Prince Adam raised his sword and said, “By the power of Greyskull!” And thus, a entire toy line exploded on store shelves teasing kids with the promise of adventure. Now, when you have put those toys away, given them away, or sold them for a small fortune, Dark Horse Comics is releasing an exhaustive compendium chronicling The Masters of the Universe toy line from 1982 to 2008.
In the 1980s, the Masters of the Universe toy lines shook the world of children’s entertainment to its foundations. Now, YouTube influencer “Pixel Dan” Eardley and He-Man historian Val Staples have worked with fans worldwide to cultivate this incredible volume that contains in-depth overviews of every item in several complete toy lines, including: 1982’s Masters of the Universe, 1985’s Princess of Power, 1989’s He-Man, 2002’s Masters of the Universe relaunch, and 2008’s Masters of the Universe Classics!
Featuring expertly-researched documentation of the toys’ development and unique variants, each entry also includes photographic reference of the heroic figures and playsets from decades of development. This phenomenal tome also features never-before-seen interviews and designer commentary from the toys’ creators, offering keen insights into the genesis of a product that inspired millions of young imaginations.
The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is over 700 pages in length, and has a cover price of $59.99. The volume arrives on November 25, 2020.
