With this EXCLUSIVE book YOU will have the POWER
Adam of Eternia - 09/09/17 - 05:31am
I'd eyed this book off for a while and then I decided to get it and Man am I so glad I did.
From the first moment it arrived before I had even opened the parcel I knew I was holding something magical. There's a lot of weight to this book.
Then when I did open the box your met with some stunning art work on the dust cover and a very unique dust jacket with a locking jawbridge.
The book itself is filled with soo much eye candy I'm never going to get enough of it.
The exclusive art print could not be better "All of Eternia's Finest Major characters in one meeting place (Board room of Grayskull I suspect) obviously planning some future endevours"
Displays fantastically !!!
To date my best MOTU purchase ever !!
A mighty and heroic tome!

By the Power of Grayskull, this book HAS THE POWER!

A beautiful, lavishly presented volume that contains a great, moderately comprehensive overview of the history of the Masters of the Universe franchise, from early concept designs, through toys, the pack-in minicomics, the Filmation cartoon series, other tie-in publications, and the '90s and '00s relaunches, as well as some of the current products and DC Comics. The final part is a section of production art for a nonspecified reconceptualisation of the franchise that will probably never happen, but it's cool to see.

Although primarily an illustrated art showcase, the book also contains interviews with and text-pages by both participants in the original franchise and knowledgeable super-fans turned professionals, and is the only official publication in which you'll find some exciting rare early production design sketches and pictures of toy prototypes from the very inception of the line.

This deluxe Limited Edition version is the creme de la creme version for serious Masters fans, with a fun opening-jawbridge Castle Grayskull slipcase, an embossed leather cover, and a print of an exclusive artwork which is pretty stunning. However, the book itself has the same content as the much cheaper regular edition, so only go for this one if you really want the exclusive art-print and slipcase for the really keen presentational value.

Also, this thing is HEAVY, so make sure to request extra padding when it ships!
Amazing Collection
Daniel - 25/06/15 - 09:29am
This heavy, highly detailed hardcover contains amazing works spanning 30 years of the MOTU history. With amazing detail and explosively colourful, glossy pages the images jump to life, displaying the intense action and drama which has kept He-Man a household name for generations. Combined with interviews from some of the most important influences on the MOTU franchise, this book leaves very little untold about creative processes and thoughts behind the universe.
