This Axe Is Solid Metal: Sideshow Announces High-End He-Man Statue
Exercise is hard, but if your fitness goals tend to line up with the way that characters in the cartoons of the early '80s looked --- all stout muscles shown off by chest harnesses and loincloths --- then I have a plan for you. Instead of working out, just remove all mirrors from your home and replace them with Sideshow's new high-end statue of He-Man, the Grayskull-powered warrior from Masters of the Universe.
It might not be the most cost-effective solution, since the statue clocks in at about $400, and you're probably going to want one for the bedroom, the bathroom where you brush your teeth, and right by the door so you can give yourself a quick look before you head out, but consider this: This axe is solid metal.
Check out a few new images below!
Here's the description from Sideshow:
“By the power of Grayskull...I have the power!”
As our debut release from a new statue collection inspired by the popular 80’s cartoon series Masters of the Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present He-Man!
Standing an impressive 23" tall, Prince Adam of Eternia holds aloft his indestructible magic Power Sword as he transforms into He-Man, the mighty champion of Castle Grayskull! Sideshow’s artists have re-imagined the muscular hero with his trusty shield, intricately detailed armored pteruges, boots and gauntlets, his strength-magnifying breastplate and power harness, and a magnificent removable cape. As a special nod to the earliest versions of the story, we have also included an exclusive swap-out axe, He-Man's primary weapon before he joined the two halves of the Power Sword that would gain him entry to Castle Grayskull. Charged with defending his kingdom from the evil forces of Skeletor, He-Man is the most powerful man in the universe!
The statue is currently up for preorder at SideshowToy.com.
