Masters of the Universe Artwork

I've only mentioned once before on the blog my love of the Masters of the Universe toy line and animated series, so it's high time I did it again.

I love the Masters of the Universe toy line and animated series.

There.  Done.

I also love scouring the Internet and finding cool artwork related to and inspired by the series.  Here are a few examples I have stored away.

This is an awesome painting by the legendary Earl Norem. I love how the sky is bright over the good guys and not-so-much over the bad guys. This image makes for great desktop wallpaper!

This is a photo of a battle display using recreations of the classic toys made by  They look just like the original Mattel toys--only awesomer!

Here is another depiction of the characters in battle by great comic book artist Frank Quitely. I don't know what he did this for, but I'd love to see a Masters comic drawn by him!

Aww, look at the cute widdle He-Man defeating cute widdle Skeletor!  Think Robert E. Howard meets Xavier Roberts.

Ya know, even two evil masterminds need time to cuddle once in awhile, understand?

Well, I don't know what's more disturbing:  the obvious, or what's happened to poor Battle Cat?

Finally, here is a Bollywood film featuring a stage show putting on a He-Man spectacle.  Kinda weird, but also kinda cool!

I can still remember the first time I saw Masters of the Universe figures in a Toys R Us. My first thought was: "These guys can kick my Star Wars dude's asses!"

The Qubo channel plays Masters of the Universe every night after midnight . . . which is nice to know that for someone like me (who has no cable) that there is something good on after midnight.

I think the Quietly piece is my favorite.

Thanks Steeven! I do have cable, and the system carries at least some (but not all) over-the-air DTV sidebands, so I'll check if Qubo is on it. If so, that's one for the DVR.
