So He-man was my favorite toy line growing up, an obsession that has led to my basement still full of totes of toys both classic and modern releases.
The mini-comics that came with the toys supplied me with hours of joy and the books had some awesome cover art along with some solid stories.
The 2002 cartoon series was solid and the whole thing is available for like 5 bucks at Wal-mart now, the original cartoon series is pretty terrible with essentially the same storyline used for most episodes with no central long term story.
That new movie makes me nervous though, but hopefully it makes it off the ground unlike the 2002ish movie that John Woo was to direct.
