It’s been 30 years since He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe went off the air, but never left our hearts. And now the ’80s cheese classic is being revived at San Diego Comic-Con for one more episode, three decades after its last.
How, precisely, is thanks to Super7, a store that specializes in building memorabilia that’s best described as crossovers between different types of ’80s merchandise. For example, if you were wondering why M.U.S.C.L.E.’s flesh-colored figurines and the freakish physiques of He-Man and his crew never crossed over, Super7 has made them real. They tend to offer fun, high-end collectibles, and they happen to have a license to make Masters of the Universe toys, which is how this all got started. It’s not clear just how much of the original cast is involved, but that sounds like Alan Oppenheimer, the original Skeletor. OK, and maybe the animation is a little cleaner than you remember, but it’s still definitely He-Man.
The episode itself is being screened outdoors as part of Super7’s kickoff of San Diego Comic-Con. If you happen to be in town, the screening is at 8th and G Street at 10 p.m. this Wednesday. As for the rest of us, we’ll just have to wait, or watch the original show on Netflix.
