We already know that I love He-Man & the Masters of the Universe. But how do I feel about this new line of Masters of the Universe Origins figures from Mattel? Since people have been asking, I figured I should do a video so you can see for yourself! Check it out!

Toys, Childhood, Life & Death: My Birthday With My Mom

My birthday was this weekend and I was able to visit my parents for the first time in about a year. On its own, that’s nice, but more special as my mom has been dealing with cancer for over a year now and it’s been a long time since I’ve seen my parents for one of my birthdays.

We’re at the point where each time I see my mom could be the last time I see my mom so I made a little video to try to preserve the moment. We spend some time talking about my childhood and past birthdays, but then get into a very real discussion about life and death. It may not be for everyone and it’s very different than anything I’ve ever put out there, but both her and I are very happy we had this conversation.

Having just completed the 200X Mike Young Productions He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, this seemed like a natural piggyback since Season 3 was just recently released.

Since we’re not starting from the very beginning, let’s do a quick little history: the series focuses on teenage Adora who has grown up while part of the Horde and has finally graduated to Force Captain. When she finally leaves the Fright Zone, she realizes that the Horde are the real bad guys and comes across a sword that enables her to transform into She-Ra, the defender of Etheria. Pretty simple, right? Right.

Whereas in the original Filmation She-Ra Adora was the kidnapped twin sister of Prince Adam (He-Man) and would eventually feature crossovers and Christmas celebrations between universes, through two seasons of this series, there hasn’t been any mention of that little plot point and really, it’s not even missed.

 

Though I was kind of iffy on some of the first images that were released publicly prior to the series’ debut, I promised myself to give it a fair shot since it was being done by Dreamworks and I absolutely loved the Voltron: Legendary Defender series they put out a couple of years prior that was way, way fucking better than anything Voltron ever before. I even did an episode recap of the premiere episode of that way back when so you know I’m not lying. Continue reading
