He-Man - Vintage MOTU

He-Man, the main character from the Masters of the Universe toy line. I was born in 1982, so I clearly missed the first wave of Masters figures. I had the Battle Armor version as a kid, but wanted a figure that looked like the He-Man I knew and loved from the cartoon show. I slowly picked up his harness and weapons at yard sales as a kid and then eventually the figure.

In the early 90's I sold off most of my childhood toys to focus on collecting GI Joes and Star Wars toys. He-Man and the rest of the Masters were bagged up with their weapons and sold at the local flea market. I bought this He-Man online after MOTU Classics reinvigorated my interest in MOTU.

 As a kid I used to run around with my role-play power sword shoved down the back of my shirt pretending to be Prince Adam. Then I'd raise that magic sword and say...

 By the power of Grayskull...

I have the power!


  1. My first He-Man figure as a kid was the battle armor version as well.I was about 5 or 6 then.I also remember my buddy raffling off his battle armor He-Man during recess in the 4th grade and me winning it :)

  2. I have this one too! Just missing his weapons.

    1. Which accessories are you missing?

    2. Missing his Shield, Ax and Sword.

    3. I've been setting stuff aside to send you a package of goodies when I get my license back. I'll include the extra shield I have for you.

    4. Really? That's so awesome of you thanks my friend. : )

  3. Love that figure!
    Sadly as a teen I gave all of my MOTU figures, playlets and vehicles.

    We recently found this one at the flea market, in great condition but minus the accessories.

    And I am adding your blog to our list!!!!
