Reviews > Adora (Masters of the Universe Classics)

When Mattel began developing a toyline counterpart to Masters of the Universe geared toward girls, they didn’t stray too far from the formula that was working so well for He-Man and his pals. Eternia became Etheria, Skeletor became Hordak, the Sorceress became Lighthope, Battle Cat became Swift Wind, Orko became Cowl, He-Man became She-Ra, Princess […]

Not Quite Dead Yet

I’m working on my Adora review, and I should have Battle Armor He-Man done by Monday. I’m also looking to create a new Odds ‘n Ends photo and some other surprises. In the meantime, I want to thank Paul for making up for some of my laziness. He’s the real American hero. He’s also a […]

Well that was fast

Is this genuinely impressive, or am I just that pre-conditioned for less-than-standard service by Digital River/Mattel? Don’t answer that.

On Adora’s Sellout

Regarding the Adora sellout: to clarify, I definitely think they were more, possibly a lot more, total Adoras than total Battle Armor He-Men. What I was suggesting in the comments to the Adora post was that the total number of Adoras available on Mattycollector yesterday might have been exceeded by the total available BA He-Man […]
