Why was I not aware of these? That was the first thought to enter my mind tonight when an email arrived here at Rock Father HQ containing a link to some new MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Super-Deformed Plush characters from Comic Images. My love of 1980s pop culture flows freely through this site, and I'm always looking for ways to expose my children to the stuff I grew up on. I've always been a little mixed on the whole "super deformed" trend, but these new MOTU plushies are pretty rockin.' Take a look...
Available in March, this first wave includes five characters, and a 30-inch power sword. All are available for pre-order right now from Entertainment Earth.
HE-MAN (PRE-ORDER HERE)
BATTLE CAT (PRE-ORDER HERE)
SKELETOR (PRE-ORDER HERE)
BEAST MAN (PRE-ORDER HERE)
TRAP-JAW (PRE-ORDER HERE)
30-INCH POWER SWORD (PRE-ORDER HERE)
What do you think, 80s children who are now parents? Will you be scooping these up for your little ones (or yourselves)?
Actually, you know what I think I need? That MASSIVE Castle Grayskull that Mattel is selling through Mattycollector.com. Actually, I don't even have any of those MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE CLASSICS, but I wish I did. Take a look at this thing...
