You Wish These ‘Masters Of The Universe’ LEGO Sets Existed

LegoMOTUTop

Displaying a grasp of fake Lego mastery never before seen by human eyes, hobbyist Alex Jones (not that one, a German guy) spent two months of his life building the most amazing set of Masters of the Universe LEGO you'll ever see, and may never buy. Check out a few of the more jaw-dropping pieces after the jump.

A Tale Of Two Toy Castle Grayskulls (And One Snake Mountain) [SDCC 2013]

grayskullssnakemttoys

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.

Honoring Jack Kirby In Keith Giffen’s ‘Masters of the Universe: Origin of Hordak’

giffenmotumain

Keith Giffen has had a long career, almost 40 years in the comics business. He's gone through several creative iterations, but one mode that was there at the beginning and keeps coming back is his all-out Jack Kirby drawing style. As a penciller, he's DC's equivalent to Marvel's John Romita Jr. Both are bold Kirbyesque stylists at companies that favor photoreference, whose work evokes a generation prior to their own. I wish DC utilized Giffen as well as Marvel utilizes Romita. Perhaps that's because DC values Giffen the writer more than Giffen the artist.

‘He-Man’ Toy Comics Writer Claims Stake In ‘Masters Of The Universe’ Copyright

motucomic

It's a pretty good time for Masters of the Universe comics, what with DC's line of MOTU books being shockingly terrific. Those new comics aren't what has toymaker Mattel and its attorneys' attention, however. They're looking back to a handful of minicomics from 30-plus years ago, the writer of which is claiming he has a stake in the MOTU franchise.

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
