    Was there ever one for the Eternia set? I could see that being the best commercial.

    I don't think so, i never saw one as a kid (and still haven't)

    And no Grimbot i don't have that one, but that isn't a US toy commercial for Motu figures is it?

    Is there no one who can help me? I'm shocked!

    *Edit : Well what do you know, i found a commercial for Eternia!!!
    Although i can't download it from that site, here is the link:

    It's an commercial for the toys, made by Filmation. One of the rarest things out there of which I've never seen any moving footage.

    Would really like to be able to view it one day. Being it is part of the filmation-mattel history about He-Man.

    I did some searching and you are right! It's actually the very first MOTU Toy Commercial EVER!
    It did not feature any figures, they were probably still in production at the Mattel factory,
    but they already started to advertise them or something like that haha. Never knew this. Thanks!

    There are also commercials for He-Man & Skeletor, Roboto, Two-Bad, Snout Spout, the Dragon Walker, the Road Ripper, Moss Man, Roton, the Fright Fighter, and there's one big ad for Blast Attack, Squeeeze, Snake Face, Buzz Saw Hordak, and Mosquitor. Also, I'm pretty sure there are commercials for Tri-Klops, Jitsu, and Scare Glow, but the memory is vague.

    Here we go with spikor's commercial



    And I believe there is another commercial for castle grayskull. I think I have it on my hard drive (I hope) , and I will try to upload it on youtube.
    The commercial begins and the dad says to his sons "Who's the big guy with th muscles ?"
    And then his son answers : "He's He-man , the most powerfull man in the universe"

    There is also this version "master power" of thunder punch he-man : http://www.retrojunk.com/details_commercial/6224/

    And there is a normal version for spydor's commercial. The one you can watch on he-man.org is the "master power" one.

    And last but not least , yesterday I found a "variation" of sy-klone commercial ! Nothing great but on one commercial you don't see the 2 small skeletor's face shot.

    [QUOTE=-= SupernovA =-;1994826]Roboto is in the Dragon Blaster Skeletor commercial

    I distinctly remember Roboto having his own commercial. One line in it said "Roboto... is... the most powerful... robot... in the universe!" I also remember it being an ad with a darker then normal atmosphere.

    Exactly. That's how I was introduced to Roboto. I saw his toy commercial on a Saturday morning, and saw somebody in my grade 3 class with a Roboto figure a week later.

    Oh ya, there is also a commercial for the Metorbs that I remember seeing. That's how I learned about those actual figures, as I have never seen them in person to this day.

    Are you sure it's not the commercial below? It has Roboto in it and "he" says the line you mentioned.
    Okay slightly different. But it is the DB Skeletor commercial. Or is there another commercial "starring" Roboto too?

    I definately remember another commercial specifically for Roboto. This was the first time I'd ever seen the Dragon Blaster commercial - very cool! First time I saw Dragon Blaster Skeletor was on the pegs in a toy department.

    I'm still hoping the Prince Adam/Orko commercial turns up one of these days. I remember really liking that one.

    These are great. I wish Mattel could whip these up and throw 'em on a DVD for us. Great times.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Awesome thread! I have a bunch of these commercials on my iPod actually, LoL. Did they ever show the Mantisaur by itself, or was it always in that commercial with Multi-Bot, Dragstor & the Horde Trooper?

    Also, anyone seen the Fright Fighter commercial (if there even is one)?
