Hold onto your battle helms and wizard robes! Both Carl AND Eddie get together for a MEGA sized MEGA and discuss what is quite possibly the coolest playset ever created, CASTLE GRAYSKULL!!!

Whether you though it was He-Man's house or a neutral fortress where whomever sat on the throne would be bestowed with unimaginable power, Castle Grayskull would set fire to a child's (and even a 40 year old's) imagination.

Please enjoy as we share our thoughts and memories of this amazing and cherished childhood toy!!

On this episode we reach back to a time BEFORE He-Man! A time where the man responsible for the creation of Castle Grayskull (and it's namesake) was the Heroic Barbarian figting off evil in all it's various forms, King Grayskull!

To be present in the Mattel design room would have been a treat! To see the idea boards of characters which were created and the ones that never made the cut would have been insanley cool.

But you can probably be sure that on that idea board was "Heroic Robot Warrior".

It'd be weird if it didn't!!

And in true MOTU style, they had their own take on it and brought it to life in comic book, cartoon, and action figure form.

In this episode we discuss Roboto!

Like we've stated before on Make Eternia Great Again, The Masters of the Universe used some pretty ambitious creativity in the design of it's characters, and this also applies to the vehicles as well!

Whether it's a ginat one-footed dragon that rotates/drags itself across the batlefield, or a flying sky sled with a dragon head on the front, the MOTU held nothing back.

Holding to that theme, we present to you: Roton!

   17353272_1206594579438339_4933194736899469562_n.jpg17309194_1206594582771672_500412206849327455_n.jpg

Essentially a one manned sled, with rotating blades, duel mounted laser guns, and a menacing face with fangs and blood red eyes thst left you windering if this thing was a machine or an animal, or perhaps some unholy combination of both thanks to Skeletor's dark magic.

This vehicle, like almost everything in the MOTU had a striling look and feel that makes it one of the most iconic set pieces.

 

Please enjoy our take on Roton!!

Prince Adam. A vital part of the He-Man and The Masters of the Universe? Or an unnecessary distaraction to an otherwise exciting story? You decide.

On this installment of Make Eternia Great Again, we get to a character that we've taken our time getting to, but for good reason...HE'S AWESOME!!!!

In our lateste episode, Eddie features one of the quirkiest characters in The Masters of the Universe. Mekaneck!

Mekaneck had one the most striking "action" features in that the figure's neck would extend from his torso and elevate his head above the heads of most of all the Masters of the Universe figures!

How this feature was showcased in the comic and the animated series was sort of all over the place, but honestly, that what makes Mekaneck and The Masters of the Universe so fun! Here's a weird and fun character, now fly with your imaginations kids!! Create your own stories and enjoy your childhoods!! Okay, I'm going to go play with Mekaneck a little now...
