Masters of the Universe was one of my favorite toy lines when I was a kid. And why not? They were all insanely muscular. Some smelled like hippies and some felt like Astro Turf. Some squirted water and some folded up to look like boulders. Some had cap gun style rounds in their backs that would explode when they punched an opponent (or the family cat). Some could extend parts of their bodies (necks, tongues, arms… even eyeballs). One mosquito monster had a button on his back you could pump to make a blood like substance swirl around in his translucent chest.

Hordak here is a villain who could transform into a tank, shoot buzzsaws from his chest and turn his arm into a vacuum cleaner.

Needless to say these were the weirdest, most insane toys I ever played with and they still make me smile today.

    That looks awesome. A couple years ago, I tried to watch some old He-Man cartoons and the first couple of She-Ra as well. I’m pretty sure that whole show was designed to turn children into homosexuals or idiots. Or homosexual idiots.

    I don’t know about the idiots thing. I learned the word “aloft” from the opening sequence of the cartoon. But you might be right on the homosexual thing. Long ago I decided that if I ever make love to a man I’m gonna shout “I HAVE THE POWERRRRRR!!!” as I climax.
