  1. I had the same nostalgic sentiments towards Thundercats a while back…unfortunately the pedestal I had placed those descendants of Thundera was unstable. However I did recognize how well the action was animated and the sweet lightning effects from the Sword of Omens.

  2. I think the Skelator came out great. I’m a little bothered by the He-Man concept though. He looks pretty bummed out and just overall not with it. As a kid I watched He-Man and to this day I never imagined him doing anything but kicking the shit out of everything in his path — not looking like he just smoked some rock.

  3. Chris, I somehow slipped through the cracks on Thundercats. I’ve never seen an episode, which is strange considering the show was at it’s height when I was 8. But that cartoon had the best logo going.

    Joe, I’d be bummed out too if I had to deal with an idiot like Skeletor. Skeletor’s only mandate was ‘be a jerk, all the time’. Or maybe he was just jealous that Grayskull looked way cooler than Snake Mountain.

  4. I also purchased He-Man recently, it was a big childhood favorite of mine and I chuckled when reading this post as I also shared that same exact feeling of excitement when that Filmation logo appeared onscreen. For many years after, I was still doing the sound effects of the logos transition in. Love it.

  5. I think this stuff looks pretty freakin cool! I love the look of skeletor only his body language needs to be a little more badass and a little less feminine.
