If you’re on this site, then I probably don’t need to tell you just how big He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was back in the ’80s. For a couple of years there, you couldn’t get through life without being bombarded with He-Man merchandise. I know I certainly fell victim to the never-ending stream of advertisements and tie-ins, and I’m better off for it since He-Man remains one of my favorite toys of all-time. So here today, I’m just taking a look back at some of the old commercials for the toys, and reliving those great times.
So this is supposedly the first commercial aired for the toy line. I have no way of verifying that, but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. It features He-Man, Skeletor, and Castle Grayskull. Whether it’s the first commercial or not, it certainly is from very early in the run as there are no other figures mentioned or shown in the ad.
