Ahh - the good old days when we believed that a bunch of freakazoids made out of plastic could veritably be deemed to be -if only for a brief instant of make-believe bogus glory- the "masters" of the whole blamed universe...!!!
Again - WHAT THE HELL WERE WE THINKING?!?
Or rather - what was Mattel thinking?
(Mattel and Marvel - an unholy alliance made in Hell!
Although it is true that Mattel had partnered up with DC first - and He-Man's first "big time" exposure had been alongside equally-stuffy big lug Superman in a DC "comic-book"...!
Ahh - the amounts of useless knowledge that I possess...! But I digress...)
I might end on this subject by voicing my theory that, at the time, Mattel must have been run by either an atheistic lunatic or a pantheist...?
But who the heck cares...?!?
One of the so-called ''masters'' here - definitely the most hirsute one!
(Beast Man was dethroned very quickly by this guy: Grizzlor, I believe?)
Though a viallinous chap, Grizz is so cuddly and all...
everybody adopted him!
And he turned ''good'' in many households!
I could never make abstraction of those similarities between
''Man-At-Arms'' and the Enforcer -
two second fiddles, both equally rough around the edges
(in the sense of less chiseled...!)
who could do the job, sure - but lacked a little something...
A little something the main hero had in spades, of course...
And this is the main hero here - of course!
What would have been the entire ''MotU'' thing
without ''He-Man'' - huh?
I got my action figure (exact as pictured here - with legs too!)
via mail... completely free of charge...
thanks to an ad that I saw in a newspaper!!!
Muito obrigado, Journal de Mourial...!!!
