A few days ago while browsing the interwebs I came across, thanks to our friends from Warpo, what I think can only be described as a STUNNING 23″ statue from Sideshow Collectibles featuring He-Man/Prince Adam in all of his epic glory.
I really do have many fond memories of the Masters of the Universe line of toys as well as the Filmation animated series but what hooked me on the toy line initially was the very rugged and dangerous settings presented in those original minicomics…you know…when He-Man left his tribe of jungle barbarians.

From the Sideshow Collectibles official release:
“As our debut release from a new statue collection inspired by the popular 80’s cartoon series Masters of the Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present He-Man!
Standing an impressive 23″ tall, Prince Adam of Eternia holds aloft his indestructible magic Power Sword as he transforms into He-Man, the mighty champion of Castle Grayskull! Sideshow’s artists have re-imagined the muscular hero with his trusty shield, intricately detailed armored pteruges, boots and gauntlets, his strength-magnifying breastplate and power harness, and a magnificent removable cape. As a special nod to the earliest versions of the story, we have also included an exclusive swap-out axe, He-Man’s primary weapon before he joined the two halves of the Power Sword that would gain him entry to Castle Grayskull. Charged with defending his kingdom from the evil forces of Skeletor, He-Man is the most powerful man in the universe!”
A big thanks to He-Man.Org for the minicomic image above.
