My Cousin Alley

Here is another attempt at painting a cousin. Eyes are really hard to do I'm finding. But I'm pretty happy with it, it being my 2nd painting and all.

Masters of the Universe

So this concludes my Masters of the Universe as little kiddy people. I know there are more out there, the more obscure ones. But for the most part I think I got all the ones that we all remember. As I was going through the list I started coming across characters I never even heard of, so I am happy with the list. I posted 2 different version, one with the BG and the other without, I couldn't pick which one I like more.


This was the guy that I had as a kid. They came with a gun that you could stick into their chest,WHY!!?? Its better than having it sticking out of his crotch?!


These guys were part of the rock people. They transformed (very loosely) to form rocks or meteorites, or something like that. The transformation wasn't even complete, you could flip it over and it was wide open, just like if Optimus Prime transformed into a truck but didn't' have no right side.

This guy looked pretty neat, considering most he-man figures were getting really silly at this point. Don't know his story, but I guess it was a guy who wanted to reach the remote and wished for long snake arms. Makes sense to me, been there.


A part of the snakemen, although he was a frog. So they are all Snakes, except this guy? I bet he had to fight hard to get into the club.

Tunglasher, "Come Ooooonn guys. Let me in. Look!... I have sharp teeth and this long tongue!"

Snakemen,"Don't we eat frogs?"


I guess this guy was suppose to be the enemy of Rotar. God, at this point I really think they were getting 4 year olds to design and color them.


A spikey dragon? A robot? maybe just a plain ole monster? Why does it even matter? He-man toys could be what ever they wanted to be. So I choose purple lizard with spikes!!


This guy was really cool for it time. Its around this era that glow in the dark things were the fad or at least one of the many fads. So to have a guy that glowed in the dark was the bee knees! (That means "Cool" for you young folk) But I didn't own this guy and kinda wish I had, he would have had great battles with Skeletor about who gets to make tea.

Snake Face

Don't have a clue about this guy. He has snakes that come outta his face, I don't know what else.......he's stupid looking?! Sure..lets go with that.


Skeletors version of battle cat. It didn't come with a cool helmet, instead he was completely covered in a fine fur. I guess that will work, as years go by the fur starts to fall off and it looks like he as some kind of disease.


I remember this coming out at the end of the series and thinking "boy they are really stretching for ideas. Like I said earlier, the toys just continued to get sillier and sillier.

Kobra Khan

This guy was awesome, every little boys dream. You could fill up his body and press down on his head and he would squirt water in a fine mist. It was awesome, easily one of the funnest( I know its not a word) He-man toys I owned. I clogged up the squirt nozzle when I tried to see what other liquids I could squirt from his mouth. Paint doesn't work well.

King Hiss

The king of the Snakemen, a story line that I am not too familiar with in the cartoon. I had a few of these guys. This here guy had his outer shell come off to expose and body of snakes. He looks quite silly in this form.


I can't believe I got this far and forgot the sorceress! I've been trekking through all the weird and obscure Master of the Universe characters and I totally left out the watcher of GreySkull. Well here she is.........yup, she's not wearing pants.


Again, I only remember seeing this guy in the comic books. I don't know what they were going for here, Bruce Lee villain with the metal hand who is a samurai?? God only knows.


Here we go with all the gimmicky characters. This guy spins. Look out skeletor or I'll send out my spinning friend to confuse you with his spin power. "sigh"

Clamp Champ

The only black man in the masters of the universe. His name, CLAMP there's a tournament for clamping? and this guy is the champion of clamping? This as to be one of the saddest characters in the MOU.

King Randor

As a kid I remember seeing this guy in the toy store and thinking,"He's lame, all he does is sit and rule a kingdom" Maybe if he came with laser shooting action or robot legs but a crown seemed to offend me as a kid. ( I don't question my kid brain)

Rio Blast

I think I have used up most of the staples of Masters of the Universe and now we enter the age of weird and strange side support characters. I never even heard of this character, but you can tell from the hair do alone that he's a Tom Seleck or Chuck Norris badass. The Mustache completes him.

I had this one when I was a kid as well. When he was fully extended, he towered over all the master of the universe characters at twice their height. He was pretty impressive and was the beginning of all the silly characters.

I really liked this toy has a kid, a cross between Skeletor and He-man, AWESOME!!! But to think that he was made to infiltrate He-mans life and no one would notice. Again,adding to the absurdity of this franchise.

Teela,"Good Morning He-man.........did you do something with your boots?!...oh well never mind"

Snout Spout

I first saw this guy in a mini He-man comic in some magazine. My first thought was ,"this looks stupid". At some point I think He-man toys(absurd to begin with) Just turned into outlandish ridiculous things. Which is what gives this toy line its appeal to many, including myself.


Another one I didn't have has a kid, nor did any of my friends. You think he be more popular seeing has he's a robot. Yeah, I don't have nothing for this guy......perhaps he's like robocop if he was built by the Carebears.

This guy was part of the Snakemen. I don't recall the snake me in the actual show. I think they came late in the series. But this guy had a button that you press on his back and his head would spring out and if you shook em, well he sounded like a rattle. Great for babies, unless they pressed the button and his head would shoot down the babies throat. That's horrible, I'm going to hell for thinking that or it could be a warning. -(WARNING - could choke your baby)

I had this guy has a kid, he had a little gear on the back that you could make his entire body spin around and his arms would flail outward creating a giant cyclone that would suck kids up into the air where you could fly so high that you would enter Care-A-Lot. Ohhh, I'm gonna do the Carebears next....I'm getting waaaay ahead of myself.

If you asked any kid in the 80's about a Ninja, he shit his pants with excitement. So what does it say when I saw this Masters of the Universe Ninja type character called Ninjor and it made me go,"That looks stupid". Perhaps my little kid brain knew there's no Ninja's in He-mans world.

Tuesday, May 4, 2010


I never owned Zodac nor did I want to. I never understood the character, what was he, an alien, ghost, something to do with Greyskull?? I don't know, hes a loser in my book. LOOOOSSEEERRR!!!

You ever have a smell that sticks with you through the ages (not literally of course) I still come across this smell today. I don't know what it is, but I remember it is usually passing older woman in Sears. The smell hits my nose and I go,"holy shit, that's Stinkor from He-man".

Another great toy. Didn't have any moving parts but came with COOL removable armor. I loved my battlecat. Many of my friends also had this toy, but again ,I seemed to be the only one who took care of my toys. Everyone else had cracks and breaks, poor poor battlecat.

This guy i didn't own, but we all had that cousin who would get toys and didn't really give two shits about them. So I would look forward going to his house to play with his He-man toys, but they were always broken, pieces missing and just plain in poor condition. With his Man-E-Faces toy, he had taken his pocket knife and cut out the head in the helmet. That thing was hard, so he put alot of time and effort in scooping out the head. Sadness.

This was another great toy. I never understood the choice of weapons for this guy, it was a green club that fit over his small claw. It rarely stayed on and almost always fell off, but who needs a club when you got a giant claw for a hand.

My neighbor 2 houses down had the toy of Teela, well his sister did. But I remember going to his house and waiting in the porch area while he got ready and sitting on the bench was Teela. I picked her up and my first thought was, "She soooo tiny, like a starwars figure".

Monday, March 29, 2010


Another great toy. One of my favorite things about this toy was that there was a latch for his sword on his armor. Not the spinning eyes, but the little sword latch.

I loved any character that could fly, which was why Buzz-off was one of my favs has a kid. Unfortunately, I did not own Stratos, but I never knew if he was a bird man or just a man that had things that helped him fly. Its more clear in the newer cartoons, but in the 80's, I didn't have a frikken clue.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010


Another great toy, came with the most accessories of any He-man, from what I can remember. I tried to take off the black piece around his arm, I always thought it could come off cause it could slide around so easily. I never did get it off.

Thursday, March 18, 2010


I thought my toy of this guy was broken, mainly because when I turned his torso to the right his neck would extend, but he wouldn't turn to the left. But for some reason I thought that he could also turn to the left and his neck would extend as well. So I still don't know if that was possible or if all Mekaneck toys worked this way. Very colorful character.


A great toy, again this is one of those toys that I had gotten before I saw him in the cartoon show. So I didn't have a clue who he was. Which does a lot for a child's imagination and have to say I enjoyed him much better after seeing him in the show.

My dad use to go away for work when I was a kid. When he return he always bring back a toy. One of those toys was Fisto. First I thought it was Man-at-arms without his helmet and grew out his mustache and beard.

Another great character. The whiplash action was superb, great for beating eggs.

Friday, February 26, 2010


This guy was one of my many favorites has a kid. Mainly because he had wings. I never understood the helmet, it could hardly stay on his head. So many times in pretend battle, his helmet was the first thing to get knocked off.

Evil Lyn

Never had any of the toy female characters. My neighbour friend sister had Teela and she reminded me of my star wars figures. All small and tiny, sheesh, He-man could split her in half. Easily the hottest of all the female characters. If cartoons females were hot, which they arn't. I'm just talking a "What IF", you know.

Thursday, February 25, 2010


I had Orko the toy has a kid and his pull string antics. I thought the hat coming off was the weirdest thing. Made his ears look like blue horns.

Beast Man

Beast was always very cool, but I never liked the dumb down aspect of him on the cartoon show. I always thought of him has savage and unpredictable. Not Mr bumbles.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


I never did like Man-at-arms, the toy, the character. He always came across has a stuffy ," Don't do this, don't do that, don't touch that, stay here, grumble grumble, stay safe!!". Yup that's exactly what he does.

Moss Man

I don't think I was a bright child. I got this guy has a kid and thought that I was suppose to put him in water to make the fur expand. Instead all the fur came off and I was left with a Moss man with no fur.

Two Bad

This was a great toy, heavy has hell and we all know when its a good toy if it can be throw at someone and knock them out.
