Easily one of the best cartoons of the 21st century. It was a shame that the new He-Man series never took off the way it should have. This show had amazing voice talent, fantastic stories and did the original 80's cartoon proud by expanding on an already fantastic world of sorcery and science fiction.

No He-Man fan should be without this amazing set of DVD's. It really is a Master of the Universe.

This series recaptured the feel of the original. Jan. 3 2008
By Brent W. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
While it was short-lived Masters of the Universe (2,002) series was a great show. It was begining to hit it's stride when it was cancelled. Thus so many children did not get to see the world of He-man. But with this DVD set they still can. And it is well worth the $16 pre-order for Volume One. As always the people at BCI will do a top notch job. The episodes had morals that were not aired in the US, moral similar to those on the '80s cartoon. These are included in these releases and so much more.

The Tradition Revisited On DVD At Last Jan. 30 2008
By ONENEO - Published on Amazon.com
At long last, fans are treated to what many consider the most accurate and exciting rendition of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe saga. Debuting in 2002 under the Mike Young Productions umbrella, this latest rendition of the He-Man source material closely follows the original Filmation standard set in the early 1980s with modernized animation quality and in-depth stories that further built upon the original characters and environments.

While the show lasted for 2 full seasons (26 first/ 13 second) it looks like the good folks at BCI (based on the 286 minute run time) have decided to break the show into three 13 episode sets. Keeping that in mind, it appears as though the first volume will contain the following season 1 episodes across 3 discs:

The Beginning Part 1
The Beginning Part 2
The Beginning Part 3
The Courage of Adam
Sky War
The Deep End
Lessons
Siren's Song
The Ties That Bind
Dragon's Brood
Turnabout
Mekaneck's Lament
Night of the Shadowbeasts

If it is anything like prior BCI/ Ink & Paint releases, there is a strong chance these sets will be absolutely loaded with extra features including writer commentary and director/ producer interviews. These are the same individuals who released the entire He-Man/ She-Ra DVD sets, which are generally regarded as beautifully packaged and digitally remastered to perfection. This is a must-buy collection for any fan of the He-Man Animated Universe.

Great interpretation of a classic! March 13 2008
By Jem - Published on Amazon.com

I'm a big fan of the original He-Man and She-Ra shows. When I heard Cartoon Network was doing a remake of He-Man, I was very skeptical. Especially after that "New Adventures of He-Man" series. It was just TOO different from the original. I never felt connected to it and I hated the design. When I finally caught an episode of this series, I was happily surprised. This new series is very well done, and it's a shame it didn't get more seasons!

I think the animation is better than the original. Skeletor now looks like a scary villain, instead of a bumbling nemesis, and He-Man actually looks powerful. I think it's an edgier style of art, that is more in the line with the Batman Animated series and other more recent animated shows without straying into anime-land. I also appreciated the update of the characters as well. I know they weren't supposed to suspect Adam was He-Man, but the foppish boy from the original was too over the top. I like this spoiled prince better. And it's nice to see Teela as an active member of the guard instead of always whining, "wait for me" and chasing after the men. The original series was aimed at young boys. This series is aimed at adult animated fans. Though the stories aren't as good as the original (partly because I carry a lot of nostalgia for them), they aren't silly either. A lot of action seems to be the theme.

Unfortunately, I only managed to see a few episodes on tv since networks are notorious for moving animated shows around with no rhyme or reason. I gave up trying to find X-Men Evolution. When I saw this DVD set, I immediately pre-ordered it. It has the same high quality the original series sets have, with lots of artwork, great extras and a visually stunning package. Die-hard fans of He-Man will surely love this, even purists may find it worthwhile, and the rest of can just enjoy it for what it is - a good adventure. I only wish they had remade She-Ra as well. I'd love to see that with an edge.

Defect in the 1st disc Feb. 22 2008
By Janice Catalano - Published on Amazon.com
BCI Guy has passed along some official information with regards to the February 13 news entry, about the replacement discs for the Volume 1 MOTU DVD set:

"The replacement disc for Mattel's He Man Volume 1, Disc One can be ordered by either sending an email to HeManDisc@gmail.com or calling 866-641-3472. Please include your name, your address, a daytime telephone number and the store name and location where you purchased your DVD.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - Defect Found on Upcoming Vol. 1 Set; BCI to Replace Disc via Toll-Free Number

Victims Will Also Reportedly Receive A Free 'Gift' For Their Troubles
Posted by David Lambert

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2002) - Volume 1 won't arrive on DVD until this coming Tuesday, February 19th for most fans. But one fan managed to snag a copy very early at a local shop, who sold it to him before street date. This turns out to be good for publisher BCI, because the fan - who goes by the name "Aran" on the message boards at He-Man.org, soon posted a message letting them know that there was an issue with one of the episodes on these discs:

Houston, we have a problem ....

I'm missing a scene episode 4 "The Courage of Adam". The problem starts at the end of chapter 3 (ends at 15:30): Adam had been captured by Skeletor, Orko and Cringer are in Snake Mountain and Gringer[sic] has just found Adam, but is scared away by Tri-Klops's doomseeker, leaving Adam in chains.

The next scene shows Prince Adam, Teela, Man-at-Arms & Ram Man exiting Snake Mountain about to be attacked by Skeletor and his new bone monster.

The battle between the Faker-He-Man & the Evil warriors and the rescue of Prince Adam by Teela, Man-at-Arms & Ram Man is completely missing. I have no scratches on the disc, the clock doesn't make a jump and I checked on both my DVD-player and my computer. The problem happens with and without the commentary.

After a few days of investigating, a BCI spokesperson who posts to those message boards under the name "BCI Guy" gave an answer explaining the situation, and what the studio will do to resolve it. We thank readers Branon Fisher and Chad Carter for quickly e-mailing us here at TVShowsOnDVD with that information, and we immediately contacted BCI to confirm and to request a press release. We were told that a press release will probably be coming soon, but in the meantime we were asked to simply quote the "BCI Guy" message from the He-Man.org message boards:

Sorry for the delay getting back to everyone, but I needed to make sure we were totally sure what happened, how we could fix it, and what we could do about it before reporting anything.

The masters that we received from Mattel are complete - the scene is not missing. The problem was in authoring. There is a layer break in the episode (Disc 1, Episode 4) and when the layer switches, it skips over about 3 minutes of the program. Unfortunately, it's during a transition and there is no visible or audible break, so the only way to notice it's there is through story continuity. And no one that watched the check discs caught that it was missing. Honestly, that's not a valid excuse - it should've been caught by someone, and the authoring house needed to realize that one episode was running 3 minutes short. It's inexcusable, and we're taking drastic measures to fix this problem once and for all. We're committed to giving everyone the best possible product - content, features, packaging and quality control. 3 out of those 4 is not nearly enough, so we're moving Volumes 2 and 3 to a new authoring house that has assured us of the quality and depth of their Quality Control department.

We have already reauthored Disc 1 and will have replacements available by street date - Feb 19th. We will be setting up an 800# to request replacement discs which we will ship out along with a new exclusive bonus item for your trouble and as an apology from us.

We are certain that all He-Man fans (and fans of BCI's other products) join us in gratitude for taking their commitment to quality so seriously. It's a big step to switch authorizing houses, but as we see that is among the steps taken here by BCI in light of this situation.

It seems likely that many of the fans reading this will get the "bad" version of the disc on this release when purchased on street date next Tuesday, but I for one don't mind since they will make it so easy to call and get a replacement (and a free exclusive bonus "gift" item, besides). Stay tuned and we'll have more information for you about that, including the toll free number and other details, just as soon as this is available.

The Power of Grayskull Feb. 23 2008
By R. J Rey - Published on Amazon.com
The powerful defender of Castle Grayskull returns to battle the forces of evil in the new animated adventure series "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe". After years of imprisonment behind the great barrier that encloses the harsh lands around Snake Mountain, the evil sorcerer Skeletor and his fearsome henchmen have broken free and once again threaten the inhabitants of the planet Eternia. Now, the carefree and headstrong Prince Adam must fulfill his true destiny and wield the Sword of Power to become the great warrior He-Man and defend Eternia and the secrets of Castle Grayskull. "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" is a very amusing remake of the 1980s cartoon favorite based on Mattel's successful toy franchise. The animated series premiered on Cartoon Network in August of 2002. The TV series shares similarities to the original. The stories, action and characters are well updated for a new generation of viewers. Many of these episodes provide some solid character backgrounds. Unfortunately, the 2002 TV series failed to gain strong ratings due to its lack of hype and a poor time slot, and was shortly cancelled after finishing the second season.

The most powerful man in the universe comes to DVD in "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Volume One". All 13 episodes of the first season are presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen format and include the never-before-seen original moral segments. The 3-disc DVD features a sharp and colorful video transfer and a good 2.0 Dolby Digital sound. Its supplemental extras include the 25-minute "The World of He-Man" documentary, extended video commentaries on 3 episodes, several character and sketch galleries, animatics of the first 3 episodes and audio commentaries by the series creators on 5 episodes. Unfortunately, there is a layer break in one of the episodes in the first DVD and buyers should notify the studio immediately to receive a replacement DVD and a bonus item for the trouble. Despite this flaw, "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Volume One" gets a "B".
