masters of the universe
During this past weekend’s Wizard World Columbus, I ended up part of a conversation that got me thinking about fans and why we don’t always support the characters we love.
I know we have all be patiently waiting for the next Masters of the Universe movie – after all, the first one was so wonderful. H’wood has completed one more step in getting closer to the next big screen release of the adventures of He-Man and Skeletor by announcing a writer to pen the story.
If you have the room, and you simply love He-Man and the Master of the Universe, Pop Culture Shock has a pair of statues that are so massive, you’ll need a special place of honor to show them off.
I’ve always been a fan of when heroes from different universes meet (or clash, as the case may be). For instance, I would love to see a new Marvel/DC crossover take place. Justice League of America/Avengers is still one of my all-time favorite books!
Skeletor earned his place as He-Man’s arch nemesis through various and sundry failed plans to overthrow the Eternian government and rule the planet. Megalomania is as megalomania does, but how did the dark wizard of Snake Mountain sink to the depths of his insanity? Read on in this Major Spoilers review.
Or – “The Biggest Question: Will They Use Orko?” “I am Adam, Prince of Eternia and defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull. Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: “By the power of Greyskull! I have the Power!” I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe! Only a few others share this secret… Our friends: The Sorceress, Man-At-Arms and Orko. Together we defend Castle Greyskull from the evil forces of Skeletor!” Did anyone else think that He-Man sounded just like Morris the Cat?
MattyCollector is showing off the packaging for the upcoming Masters of the Universe Classics Battleground Teela figure. The warrior goddess certainly looks different than her ’80s animated version, which I’m sure isn’t going to sit well with a lot of MOTU fans. Battleground Teela goes on sale June 15, 2011. via MattyCollector.com
I really love the life size and larger than life sized statues that the booths utilize during their major shows. Here is Mattel’s Prince Adam ready for today’s attendees to stand around shouting “I have the POWER!” Like I’m sure he’s never heard that one before… I wonder what these companies do with the statues after the convention season is over? via Mattel
This issue: The conversation starts off with talk about Byrne and eventually gets around to a discussion of toys.

If you are wondering what Mattel will be bringing to the toy table in 2010, take a gander at these images taken at the booth that spells it all out for you. That Lobo animated figure comes to MattyCollector.com in the Spring via Mattel
Mattel has announced it will release Skeletor’s mistress of magic in April. Evil-Lyn comes complete with staff, wand (with removbale swapable headpiece), Skreeech, bird armor and bird perch! The figure will only be available at the Matty Collector website.Â I remember when Masters of the Universe toys were first released, and I watched the cartoon series whenever I could, but I do not remember half of the characters Mattel is pushing out. I guess memory loss comes with getting older. via Matty Collector
Those who really want to be completists when it comes to their action figure line, will want to pick up the Adora figure when it becomes availabe in January 2010.Â Mattel posted several images of the figure over on the Mattycollector Facebook page.
