When Men Were Men

"Back when there were real men looking to be our stand-in super-heroes, we had known our champion to be a gold-maned bruiser who had his own TV show. It seems that nostalgia for this '80s superstar has gone past the breaking point, and some toy makers decided to stand up, and deliver the goods.
    When you browse through the toys section this month, feast your eyes on the Masters of the Universe Figures. These 5" action figures are recreations of the original toys, and won't be around for long because of their limited production run.
    All of your old favorites are back on the scene for new millennium adventures. Look for He-Man (with power sword, shield, & battle axe), Skeletor (with sword, staff, and armor), Beast Man (with chest armor, armbands, & whip), Man-at-Arms (with mace and chest, arm, & leg armor), Mer-Man (with sword & chest armor), Teela (with snake armor, staff, & shield), Trap Jaw (with 3 interchangeable arm attachments), Evil-Lyn (with crystal ball and staff), Tri-Klops (with sword & chest armor), and Faker (with sword & chest armor).
    Check out the Masters of the Universe Man/Beast Two-Packs also in the toys section. He-Man comes with his trusty BattleCat, and Skeletor - with a face only a mother could love - comes with his evil Panthor. Each figure stands approximately 5" tall and comes in a window box. (...)"
