    I bought a lot of He-Man toys back in the day (or had them bought for me) and loved the mini-comics! Sometimes the mini-comic is all you got for a storyline in a toyline. Starriors, Sectaurs, they all had great mini comics. DC's Super Powers too.

Hmm. I wonder if any of these other mini comics have been collected in hardcover. Starriors and Sectaurs both sound cool.

    Of course later on DC and Marvel got their hands on He-Man and I'd say "but it's not the same way the original story went!" because I was in the know. But it was all good.

I think I'm going to enjoy what surely is NOT decompressed storytelling in these mini comics.

    I think like G.I. Joe and Transformers, they started with a story bible and character profiles for the toy line that became the basis for the later media. So the cartoons and comics would be different but sort of similar. I always found that interesting.

So many cool toys from our era!

    I'm working on a Masters of the Universe collage for this board and found a site with scans of all the original mini-comics (and Marvel and DC comics too), namely www.He-Man.org It was cool to see all the comics that I didn't originally own.

I eagerly await your collage!

    As for me, have I bought anything from the '80s-90s recently? My current hobby is collecting handheld electronic games, although many of them come from the '70s, my most recent acquisition is from 1983. It's a Star Wars inspired tabletop arcade known by many names, but the one I bought is called Firefox F-7.

Wow - handheld games that didn't run on smart phones!
