The world of He-Man and She-Ra has a lot of history, spanning decades of comics, cartoons, toys, and more. But three new books coming from Dark Horse are planning to archive some of that history in stunning style, and we’ve got the first look.
Confused? Understandably. But Super7, purveyors of all sorts of nerdy nostalgia, have clearly done a shocking amount of work to make this as authentic a version of the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series as possible, right down to Skeletor’s insults of his minions. Watch this trailer and…
While Sony’s Masters of the Universe movie seems no closer to actually getting made now than it has for the last dozen or so years, at least we know one actor has had an actual conversation about the film with its current director McG: Kellan Lutz.
The grown man who continues to identify as McG is in talks with Sony to direct the long, long, long in development Masters of the Universe movie. As io9's resident gonzo He-Man fan, I have long been of the opinion that no live-action movie can possibly live up to my unreasonably high expectations; it’s almost…
Here’s some further proof that the full The Force Awakens trailer model works for everything: Masters of the Universe recut into the same trailer style makes it look awesome. So much better than the Inception model.
For this weekend’s Sunday Matinee, we’re going back to 1987 for Masters of the Universe. This live action adaptation of the Mattel franchise was a critical box office failure, but for b-movie campiness? You can’t get much better.
There have been a lot of screenwriters hired to pen a live-action movie adaptation of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, but none of theme have managed to turn the story of a tan, mostly naked barbarian/bodybuilding enthusiast for modern audiences. But I have high hopes for the newest writer to take it on.
... for your wall. Ever wanted to basically do what Skeletor never could? Now’s your chance! Well, as long as you have a rather ludicrous amount of money, this massive head of poor Battle Cat from Masters of the Universe could be yours to mount above your fireplace in a mixture of sadness and pride.
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.
When we ranked the original Masters of the Universe figures, you knew the Princess of Power figures were also coming, right? Sure, She-Ra’s toyline wasn’t quite as epic as her brother He-Man’s, but it was still awesome. It’s just that some figures were more awesome than others.
The most powerful man in the universe was also part of the greatest toyline in the universe. MotU’s giant, wildly varied assortment of heroes and villains set it apart from its ‘80s counterparts — admittedly, some more so than others. So here are all 60 original action figures, scientifically ranked by awesomeness.
Details on the live-action Masters of the Universe movie have been scarce to say the least, but the Senior VP of Production at Sony/Columbia Pictures, DeVon Franklin, just tweeted this extremely impressive picture of He-Man's steed Battle Cat. What could it be other than concept art from the movie?
What is best in life? Seeing a classic sword-and-sorcery hero brought to the big screen, with an iconic bodybuilder in the lead role. But how did Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian become such a classic film? The path to glory was long and twisted. Here's everything you never knew about the making of Conan.
An action figure gives us a close-up look at Age of Ultron's Iron Man suit, plus a better look at Ultron. Learn more about Agent Carter's mythology. And take a good look at Powers' cast. Plus, has Doctor Who started hiring directors for season nine? Spoilers now!Yoga Hosers Avengers: Age of UltronProject Almanac…
It was roughly 35 years ago that Mattel decided to do its own action-adventure toyline, to make up for its decision not to do Star Wars toys in 1977. In an exclusive excerpt from the book The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, we've got exclusive early sketches, plus the first He-Man pitch memo!
Skeletor can't be an easy boss to work for. Check out this collection of his greatest insults, most of which are directed at his own incompetent minions. I'd say Beast-Man and the others have a case for harassment, but who are they going to complain to? It's not like Trap-Jaw runs Snake Mountain's HR department.
It probably shouldn't shock anyone to realize that any franchise whose main character was named "He-Man" was, in fact, kind of ridiculous. But somehow the Masters of the Universe toys, cartoons and movie managed to exceed all expectation of weirdness. Here are a dozen bizarre He-facts that you've probably forgotten…
