Publisher is Universe...never heard of them before, can anyone vouch for the quality of similar works (if they exist)?
Hope this is news and I'm not just late to the party.

Let me show you just what I'm made of now...
I have never seen that before and i think it´s not an official book. I´m not an expert but the cover looks a but blurry and self-made but we need to wait for a review to see what genre it really is
*Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Hawke *Pebb-Liss(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither
It sounds funny!
"I wouldn't be surprised if this movie has Adam as a skinny nerd from Earth battling another skinny nerd-hacker from Earth that used an alias of Keldor. They then enter Tron-style to a cyber world called Eternia, where they control muscle-bound avatars to battle (called He-Man and Skeletor). And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX
I generally speaking do not like parodies of this type. Things like the Onion, John Stewart's Earth, History of the 80's (published in the 70's), ect.
If it is written in the style of genuine lessons and philosophy from the eyes of the characters, and not just simple jokes, I would be into it.

Haha, sounds awesome! Self-help book by the Most Powerful Man in the Universe? I'll take it!
Evil Simian Mechanic of the Horde!
I'm wondering if this book might be a print edition of the posts made on the He-Man Facebook page.
Harken the coming of Tuskador!!

I'm not sure I understand this book. That's why I didn't jump on it yet. Seems a bit odd. Not sure it's something to have in the collection if it's based on ridiculousness. At least the calendar has great filmation art, the mini comic and the other book is full of useful information. I'll have to keep this in the air til we can get a bit more grasp on the point of this book.
That can't be legit. It sounds like a eh well I won't say.
Obey the whip!
Smile like you mean it.
So this book's release is changed from March 15th to November 8th, 2016 then?
I was about to ask if anyone had gotten a copy yet and what the heck is in it...
Wonder why it got pushed back so many months? Given how it sounds from descriptions like a tongue-in-cheek text-only book...
Sounds a bit like Kermit's "Bio"/Self-Help book. Might be funny, probably does use life lessons based around the characters.
- Don't run away from problems
- Man up if you make a mistake
- Learn from your mistakes and don't blame others
- Respect other people and nature
- Don't be selfish or greedy
Good stuff like that.
So does anyone know what's going on with this book? It's meant to be out but Amazon is reporting it's temporary out of stock. Kinda looking forward to reading it.
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).
So I've just received an email from amazon and this has officially been cancelled. Anyone have any more news?
2018? That's a long ways away to wait for a book to be made. That's crazy. Well, glad I didn't waste my time preordering it.
