Super7 has something Skeletorrific planned for SDCC, a Masters of the Universe Pop-Up shop! They’ve provided a teaser for one of the items that will be available – a mash up for the Masters of the Universe and the 80’s wrestling mini-figs M.U.S.C.L.E M.O.T.U.S.C.L.E.!
These are certain to be incredibly hot at SDCC (I know they’re near the top of my want list), as Super7 did a few years ago with Alien ReAction figures, they’ve done something really cool and fun with SDCC. Check them out below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
Super7 has started teasing something special for SDCC with a He-Man and the Masters of the Universe twist. At the show, swing by the Super7 booth (#4945) or the Mattel Booth (#3029) to pick up a Skeletoken. This Skeletoken will let you into Skeletor’s Lair (and pop-up shop) at 701 8th Avenue (Corner of 8th and G). They’ve not previewed any of the merchandise yet, but stay tuned.
Name: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: The Complete Second Season
Released: September 13, 2011
Initially released at San Diego Comic-con (with the pictured limited edition packaging); the second season of He-Man’s original animated series gets a wide release from Mill Creek Studios this Tuesday, September 13th. The 8 disc set includes all 65 episodes of season 2; 10 complete episode scripts, 50 character, creature and artifact profiles, 3 documentaries and 6 episodes with commentary tracks. The set will be available in stores this week or is available for order now on Amazon.com.
I’ve had the chance to watch a few episodes in the set, and if you’re a fan of He-Man; this set is a must have. The video and audio quality are good; on par with most 80’s animation releases. A local station here in Phoenix airs He-Man and She-Ra repeats and the DVD quality is better than that of the local broadcasts. The story quality varies from episode to episode; there are some standout episodes and some that are rather forgettable – but on a whole the ones that I’ve watched have been fun. I imagine most folks looking to pick up this will be familiar with the series, so you know exactly what to expect story-wise. I also spent a fair amount of time looking over the special features; I really enjoyed the documentaries as they provided some insight into the classic series. The packaging of the discs is nice, but a bit unconventional. Inside the case is a booklet and a stack of disks; each in its own paper sleeve. It’s a little different than other multi-disk sets I have, but it gets the job done and isn’t flimsy like some solutions tend to be.
The DVD release of the 2nd season of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe provides exactly what any fan of the series would want; a good quality release at a great price considering the number of episodes and special features included. All in all this set gets high marks, if you’re a He-Fan you should check it out!
