    He-Man and She-Ra Classic Animated Adventures LIMITED EDITION book - up for pre-order

    The upcoming guide from Dark Horse now comes as a special, ultra limited edition variant!
    Info below, and click here to pre-order!

    Check out this video review by Pixel Dan!


    The wait for the upcoming Dark Horse Books guide to the He-Man and She-Ra Filmation cartoons just got a little more exciting. Written by cartoon expert James Eatock, the He-Man and She-Ra: A Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures boasts nearly 600 pages of synopses, animation processes, and trivia for every single episode of the Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power cartoons.

    In addition to the regular edition coming this August, Dark Horse has partnered with world-renowned fan site He-Man.org to offer a special version of this amazing book. The limited edition variant comes with a faux leather cover with foil stamping that beautifully complements the design of the previously released limited edition of The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. It also comes with gilded edges that enhance the look of the volume with a prestigious gold sheen.

    And for the crowning element, it is wrapped with a holofoil dust jacket featuring He-Man and She-Ra in their famous transformation scene! The holofoil makes the magic come to life as you move the book around in your hands, and it will pop off any collector's shelf. The back of the dust jacket features the two most evil beings on Eternia and Etheria: Skeletor and Hordak, ready to attack!

    But whatever you do, don't wait to preorder. Whereas the limited edition of The Art of He-Man was restricted to 4,000 copies, only 1,000 copies of the He-Man and She-Ra: A Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures limited edition will ever be printed. So preorder yours before it's too late. You don't want to miss out on this incredible collectible! Pre-order today!

    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2017!

    Something like this is hard to say. The Art of MOTU limited edition nearly sold out. I can't say inventory specifics, but I know there's very few left and there was 4000 of those to start with. And there's only 1000 of these.

    We've had toys limited to 1000 that disappear in less than a day. Then we have things like our SOTS DVD variant limited to 1000 that took a few months to sell out. Some items go fast, others take a while to sell out.

    So, this could be gone in a few days? A few weeks? A few months? Tough to say.

    Dang.. yeah when I asked that I didn't read that they were limited to 1000. Thanks val.. just wanted to know how much time I had.. a 100 is a lot and wanted to make sure I was cool Financially. At first had no idea that it was 1000..

    Ordered.....big thanks to Dark Horse and everyone else involved who made this happen. It was inportant that She-Ra got equal billing on the cover of this book! I can't wait to have this in my collection.

    One point if I may make some constructive criticism. ...something looks off with the shape of She-Ra's face. I think it looks a touch to narrow.

    OK cool.. pretty sure I preordered the other version, but this is like the art book to me and just a cool thing to have closed in the collection.

    Yeah mate I agree, and on top of that there's only 1000 being released. So I just needed to have it. Cost me $233 though after converting to Australian dollars and shipping :-//

    I don't know how you fine folks in Australia can afford to order anything. Shipping from the US is through the roof! I was grimacing at those prices. It's like three times as much as it was back when we were shipping things in 2003.

    Tell me about it mate. It's a killer just on shipping alone. It does my head in. But what do you do huh. When you have a passion for something it kinda leaves you with no choice. Im thankful God has blessed me with a good paying job.

    Preordered. I REALLY love the look of the He-Man and She-Ra outer cover as well as the two swords on the hard cover. I passed on the previous exclusive, but this one is a must have for me.

    Will there be pics any time soon? The description is pretty detailed, so I can imagine it al right, but pictures would be even better.
