U.S. District Judge Manuel Real has determined that toymaker Mattel owns the franchise and all its characters lock, stock and barrel, just in time for a proposed movie reboot from Sony.

As San Diego Comic-Con is perhaps the only venue big enough to contain the home bases of He-Man and Skeletor, Mattel and Icon Heroes seemed happy to display their takes on Eternia's best-known landmarks at the show. Mattel displayed its fully-stocked Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull play set in all its 25” x 26" x 28” glory while Icon Heroes laid out its own 9.75" x 9" x 11" polystone statue version. What's more, IH unveiled an accessory kit for its castle that expands the miniature kingdom substantially, plus an unpainted prototype of a polystone Snake Mountain. It was like seeing Eternia from a magic carpet, man. Dare to compare the huge MoTU toys after the jump.

DC’s New ‘He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe’ Comics Are Secretly Awesome

hemmu314

When the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series found its way to Netflix Instant not too long ago, I thought it would make perfect background noise for my work day; some nostalgic entertainment to help pass the time while working on the site. But as an adult, what I discovered in that early 1980s cartoon based on an action figure line was far more distracting and indeed more sophisticated than I ever realized as a little boy. While the animation itself is crude (and famously recyclable), the show expresses a palpable sense of otherworldly adventure and intrigue through its writing but even more so through it's surprisingly awesome art direction. I thought, this medieval-techno world of Eternia and its heroes, villains, magics and prophecies could really be great if someone wanted to really dig into it.

The Surprisingly Awesome Comics History of ‘Masters Of The Universe’

he-manmotucv1main



Despite bearing the Masters of the Universe banner, He-Man, Skeletor, and their legion of barely-dressed companions have rarely been associated with capital "Q" quality. Mattel's 1981 toyline and Filmation's ensuing 1983 cartoon are beloved generational touchstones, but are often remembered for their respective recycled sculpts and animation. And let us not even speak of live action MoTU movie sta
