Pop Culture Shock to make He-Man statue – and YOU get to choose the style!



Looks like we’ve got more merchandising happening for the 30th anniversary of Masters of the Unvierse!

Pop Culture Shock, the company most well known right now for their ThunderCats statues, looks to be producing a new He-Man statue! The cool part is that they are allowing the fans to vote on the style of the statue!

The above image has four different versions of He-Man, the first being a fully Filmation rendition and the fourth being what they call a “realistic” rendition, with the two in between being a combination of the two.

Personally, I voted for B. I would also be happy if A was the winning choice. I’d love to see a Filmation styled He-Man in statue form!

You can vote right now over at Pop Culture Shock’s Facebook page!

Making the Mosquitor Mask – An Interview with Glen Coleman

You may recall the challenge made to me by Scott Neitlich prior to this year’s San Diego Comic Con.  And if you were at the show or saw pictures from it, then you know I was able to meet that challenge.

But I never would have been able to if it weren’t for the very talented Glen Coleman contacting me and offering to help me out by building an amazing Mosquitor mask! Many of you have contacted me and asked me how the mask was made, and I kept promising that once SDCC was all wrapped up, I would shine the spotlight on the man behind the making of that mask.

So, here we are. It’s time to talk to Glen Coleman! Click on through to learn how he did it, complete with images and video of the actual mask making process, and even grab the specs so you can try yourself!

Rudy Obrero and Joe Amaro to release The Manta Raider

You guys know who Rudy Obrero is, right? He’s the talented artist behind many of the box art pieces from the original Masters of the Universe toy line, and the man responsible for the beautiful artwork seen on the MOTU Classics Wind Raider, Map posters, and the upcoming Granamyr.

Not too long ago he posted some brand new artwork depicting He-Man flying over a sea on a hover board-looking device that Rudy created just for the painting. He called in The Manta Raider.

Soon after, talented toy maker Joe Amaro recreated The Manta Raider in plastic! It was a perfect representation of the device seen in Rudy’s painting. After seeing this, many fans said they would love to add this piece to their collections.

Well, fans are finally going to get the chance to do just that.
