Friday night we had our first organized Live Tweet event with The Signal Watch when we got together on Twitter and partook of Master of the Universe, the toyline/ cartoon turned into a feature film and probably Burger King glass ware.
I want to thank everyone who came out online and made the event so much fun! That was pretty great. I think we had a good time, had our say and I think nothing got broken we can't fix.
We'll do it again at some point, as soon as we find something on Netflix we all want to watch. So, send your candidates our way.
Down to business:
I wasn't a He-Man kid. The only one of the figures I spent my own allowance on was Mer-Man. For some reason, I really liked the sculpt on ol' Mer-Man. No idea why.
|I confess, I just really identified with this guy|
But I really liked underwater adventure toys as a kid, so that probably had something to do with it. Who knows?
In the summer of '87, when the movie was released, I would have already been 12, and, as recently discussed with pals JuanD and PaulT, just past the age where you didn't really know how to play with an action figure anymore. I might still watch the He-Man cartoon after school, but it was kind of that or stare at a wall until my mom got home from work (lord knows I wasn't going to read, do my homework, or get exercise).
