Holy #$$#!!! That was super cool. If ever there was a reason to build a time machine out of a Delorean, that would be it.
If they rebuilt that at SDCC, I would be going in and out of it at least 100 times. I would just be geeking out with my &*$% out.

You just read a post from the head Honcho of Nerds On A Couch!
WOW just WOW!!!!!!! I wish I could have seen that in person!
I love the paint they did on Snake Mountain!
Sweeeet. Filmation music.
EEK! John Erwin and Alan Openheimer! (seems they used clips from the show. The "Very well, He-man, you won THIS time..." is definitively from Diamond ray of disappearance. Could "Together we defend castle Grayskull from Skeletor and forces of evil" be a voice clip from some alternate intro narration?)

That was amazing.
I have never seen anything like it.
A live action figure commercial.
There is nothing like that in today’s times.
Those were the days. Glad to see a video like this surface.

Pixel Dan hipped me to this earlier today and it blew my mind!
Can you imagine seeing this as a young kid back then? I know if my 4-5 year old self saw this go down, I wouldve crapped my blue-seamed He-Man underoos.
i remember he-man, skeletor & orko coming to Toys R Us when I was a kid but it was just a meet and greet so you could take photos. nothing so elaborate like what's in the video. was this shot in a particular toy store?
Yeah, I saw this yesterday thanks to Poe Ghostal. What an amazing video this is! I love when this kind of thing surfaces!
God, I wish I could have seen something like this when I was a kid. It looks like it was at a mall, so I wonder if this was some sort of traveling promo show for Mattel, to promote the new figures coming out. That's what it appears to be, at least.
But man, this is so great! I LOVE this kind of stuff. And this is exactly why I love MOTU so much. Look how epic this promotion of their toys is! I wish we got stuff liek this today!
This really makes me want some Classics figure from 1986!
Also makes me super nostalgic for my childhood of the 80s!
*sigh* lovely times - I'd love to go back to those days.
That was amazing! I would have given anything to see that when I was young. Kids these days don't know what they're missing. Toys from the 80's were so much cooler!
I guess THIS is why they say He-Man was all one big toy commercial. Seriously - can you say "corporate brainwashing"?
Still, I like the idea. The video at the end was neat and unexpected. I was super annoyed, though, that the camera man didn't catch the "Evil Horde" portion of the presentation. Figures. She-Ra always get shafted, doesn't she?
haha! I love that. I have a new video to post to Facebook!
Well I think I now have the definitive answer to what I would use a time machine on. I want to go to that mall in 1986 where ever it is, watch that epic MOTU figure promotion, then proceed to that mall's Kay Bee Toys and buy everything that has the classic dark blue universe with the exploding red rocks (yea yeaaaa!) on it.
Edit: that poor kid traumatized by Hordak too. He probably just watched Secret of the Sword and figures Hordak's gonna try to abduct him and take him to Horde World or somethin!
While I was reading the youtube comments just now (what can I say youtube comments usually entertain me) this was just posted:
The Heman display was 21' wide by 12' deep by 12' high. It took ten people to set it up and close to six hours to make it "star ready" for each mall. The tour lasted 29 weeks and started in West Mifflin, PA, then to FL,NJ,IL, OH, IN,MO,WA,NV,CA & many other states. I gave out thousands of posters and iron decals. It was the one of the first times the use of video disks were featured. The presentation was seen by hundreds of thousands of kids of all ages. Signed, the sole Tour Manager - 1986
