HE-MAN COMPETITION

It’s competitions time and your chance to win the complete collection of He-Man and the Master of the Universe on DVD worth £60.

He-Man and the Master of the Universe was one of the most beloved animated series of the 1980s! 

When Prince Adam held up the magical Sword of Power and uttered, “By the power of Grayskull”, he transformed into He-Man.

Kids would raise their sticks and strike the iconic pose as they transformed into He-Man, the valiant defender of his realm.

Win the complete collection of He-Man and the Master of the Universe

He-Man rejected by Hanna-Barbera

Inspired by the wildly popular toys, the original He-Man series became a cultural phenomenon starring He-Man, Orko, Skeletor, Man-at-Arms and many more unforgettable characters. 

He-Man made his debut in 1981 with Mattel’s release of the original “Masters of the Universe” 5.5-inch action-figure toy line. 

The cartoon rejected by Hanna-Barbera was produced by Filmation and didn’t appear on our TV screens until 1983. 

Billion-Dollar Franchise

TV shows and movies had produced spin-off toys before, but never in reverse; this was a first. By 1984 the He-Man franchise had earned over a billion dollars for Mattel.

At its height, He-Man was the highest-rated kids’ show in America. The show’s premiere brought in nine million viewers in the United States alone. It was broadcast in 37 countries and aired on Children’s ITV from 1983 to 1989.

The original He-Man action figures came packaged with a minicomic which gave a bit of backstory. DC Comics Presents saw Superman teaming up with He-Man in issue #47 in a story titled, “From Eternia–with Death!”.

In 2021 Kevin Smith created a new adaptation for Netflix called Masters of the Universe: Revelation with a voiceover cast including Mark Hamill, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alicia Silverstone.

She-Ra: Princess of Power – The Complete Series is also being released by Fabulous Films on 25th April. This spin-off from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was aimed primarily at a young female audience to complement He-Man’s popularity with young males and followed the story of He-Man’s twin sister Princess Adora/She-Ra.
