Trivia

The copyright for the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE character Fisto had expired by the time this show was filmed, so his action figure was released under the name Battle Fist. Because the animated character was still under copyright protection, though, he was still called Fisto when he appeared at the end of the second season. See more »

A great re-do of a classic series.
15 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

If you loved the old He-man then this show will appeal to you. It's got all the same characters, but the character development and plot is crisper. There is more internal conflict. And more inter character relationships. This series is filled with drama between the characters you loved in the 80's. And the animation looks better. Personally, I don't think the way the fights are animated, a sort of cheap dragon ball z type reuse of the same 'flying' shots over and over again. It's not bad, it just gets old if you watch them too often. But over all it's really quite enjoyable. Since this post is referring to the pilot movie in particular. I must say it's a great story that was never told in the original series. It tells how Skeletor came to be. And how he got that cute skeletal face of his. It give backround that you've been dying to know since the early 80's. It's worth watching for that alone. ANd it tells how Prince Adam first became He-man. Which was also left out of the 80's show. Watch it. You will not be disappointed.
