Dark Horse Comics have just announced details of The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, a massive 700+ page hardcover chronicling the quintessential toys of He-Man, She-Ra, and the other Masters of the Universe.
YouTube influencer “Pixel Dan” Eardley and He-Man historian Val Staples have worked with fans worldwide to cultivate this incredible volume that contains in-depth overviews of every item in several complete toy lines, including: 1982’s Masters of the Universe, 1985’s Princess of Power, 1989’s He-Man, 2002’s Masters of the Universe relaunch, and 2008’s Masters of the Universe Classics!
Featuring expertly-researched documentation of the toys’ development and unique variants, each entry also includes photographic reference of the heroic figures and playsets from decades of development. This phenomenal tome also features never-before-seen interviews and designer commentary from the toys’ creators, offering keen insights into the genesis of a product that inspired millions of young imaginations.
Dark Horse already have an impressive back catalogue of He-Man related content, including a Character Guide and World Compendium (REVIEW HERE), Newspaper Comic Strip Collection (REVIEW HERE), Mini Comic Collection (REVIEW HERE) and The Art of He-Man & The Masters of the Universe (REVIEW HERE), all of which were fantastically good, so expectations around the He-Man community have to be running fairly high right now.
The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will be available everywhere books and comics are sold on November 25, 2020, and you can guarantee that we’ll have a full review here at the Big Comic Page as soon as we can get our hands on it.
