    If a He-Man revival were made, it might look something like these…

    This is one case where ‘re-imagining’ won’t do. Mass erasure of memory is more like it.

    If a He-Man revival is made, it should be produced by the HARVEY BIRDMAN guys.

    FYI, They already made a new Masters of the Universe series in 2002. That one was actually pretty good.

    I thought for sure the image above was from Mr. Warburton of Codename: Kids Next Door fame. Totally surprised it isn’t.

    Looks great. I’m a self-hating He-Man fan. I have such fond nostalgic feelings for it but the adult in me gives me a hard time for that. Yet, when I see things like this, the nostalgic side wins out every time. This image and others I’ve seen look excellent and I’d love to be able to go. Good luck with it, Jeaux!

    Wow. This almost makes He-Man look like something other than a horrible, unforgivably hideous and thoroughly, eye-gougingly abysmal piece of rotten garbage.

    Dare I say it, this almost makes He-Man artistic.

    Of course, the only real feeling this invokes in me is sadness that anyone would waste their time trying to make He-Man artistic.
