The last Filmation episode of the classic He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was entitled The Cold Zone and aired back on November 21, 1985. It’s been almost 31 years since we’ve last had a look at He-Man and the Masters of the Universe in that retro animated style but thanks to those mad geniuses over at Super7 we are about to get our chance to see a new bit of animation with…

Of course if you watched that video you will noticed that the “bad” news is you can only see this at the San Diego Comic-Con next week…until it’s released on August 1st on iTunes and Google Play for those us that can’t make the trek to see it.
That isn’t the only thing Masters of the Universe related from Super7 at the Comic-Con this year, not by a long shot. First of all you will need this nifty Power Token to gain entry into Skeletor’s Lair…

…where you can grab Super7’s Masters of the Universe M.U.S.C.L.E. Multi-Color Trash Can Assortment…
…or the exclusive San Diego Comic-Con 24 figure pack!
There isn’t a whole lot of information from the Super7 camp on the Masters of the Universe cartoon just yet…or even if it’s a cartoon or just a bit of short animation. At least we do know that Beast Man, Mer-Man, and of course Skeletor will be in it and there are rumors from Super7 that the dastardly villain is going to try and take over Comic-Con!
It would certainly seem that the great but often overlooked Battle Beasts from back in 80s is finally getting are finally their second chance thanks to IDW and Diamond Select Toys! The two entertainment giants have teamed up to not only bring us the new comic book adventures of the Beasts but new toys as well.
From the IDW/Diamond Select Toys announcement: ““Battle Beasts is a great fit for IDW”, said writer Bobby Curnow. “What’s so important about toys is they enable kids to build worlds in their imaginations, and create stories for those worlds. Since I never really grew up, getting the chance to help create the new Battle Beasts in comic form has been a fantastic and supremely fun experience. The world has been turned upside down with the arrival of the Battle Beasts, and we’re going to have a great time showing just how crazy things get. IDW has a lot of experience finding riveting stories in toy-based licenses, and I hope Battle Beasts is no exception. I know for a fact that Valerio is knocking it out of the park. His art is going to floor a lot of people.”
And the excitement does not stop there — at San Diego Comic-Con (July 11-15), IDW will launch the BATTLE BEASTS series with issue #1, and DST will unveil the first full wave of Battle Beasts Minimates, which will be in stores in late fall of 2012! The first wave of two-packs will focus heavily on characters who appear in the comic, and will have a gameplay element, as well. DST will also have an exclusive two-pack of Battle Beasts for sale at the show.”
Let’s just hope that it can contain the awesomeness of that classic Hasbro animated TV commercial!
With the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con one day away from flooding the internet with the latest on movies, games, toys, and thankfully some comic book news, the fine folks over at Ain’t It Cool News have posted this teaser trailer for next year’s reboot of the 2002 Sam Raimi take on the classic Marvel Comic character.
Now to be fair the producers of the film are saying this is not actually a reboot, they are just going back to show us the adventures that Peter Parker had while in High-School. Though from this teaser it seems they are possibly going with the idea that the comic series did, that Peter’s parents were…Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and died during a mission.
Take notice that they are going with mechanical web-shooters in this movie, you can just make it out towards the end of the teaser.
A big thanks to our friends over at EPIX for not only this awesome update to the one and only Shatnerpalooza but for this incredible display of manly strength as Captain Kirk arm wrestles…Captain Kirk!
“EPIX, the premium entertainment channel, video-on-demand and online service announced today that it will preview its original EPIX Picture, The Captains, at this year’s Comic-Con® in San Diego on Friday, July 22. William Shatner will talk about the original documentary he produced and directed, an in depth look at the actors who have played Star Trek Captains in the films and television shows. Avery Brooks, who played Captain Benjamin Sisko in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, will join Shatner on a panel at Comic-Con moderated by Kevin Smith Friday, July 22, which will include exclusive clips and an audience Q&A.
Following the panel, Shatner will participate in EPIX Live from Comic-Con, an online Q&A on EpixHD.com which will allow fans across the U.S. to interact with the iconic writer-actor-producer-director. EPIX Live from Comic-Con with William Shatner will be produced by EPIX in partnership with San Diego affiliate, Cox Communications, which carries EPIX as part of its “Movie Pak” offering.
The Captains will make its world premiere July 22 at 8:00 pm EDT on EPIX and EpixHD.com as the centerpiece of SHATNERPALOOZA, a celebration of William Shatner’s film and television work running on the EPIX linear channel, EPIX SVOD service and EpixHD.com from July 21 through July 30.

Also featured will be the complete collection of the six original Star Trek films starring William Shatner in his seminal role as Captain Kirk, plus other rarely seen and sometimes controversial films including The Intruder, Big Bad Mama, Disaster on a Coastliner and Broken Angel, along with some highly entertaining TV fare like a classic 1964 episode of Outer Limits, a dazzling turn as the first host of Iron Chef and a no holds barred TV roast.
Comic-Con attendees will be invited to see The Captains on EpixHD.com as part of a two-week free trial offer.”
