    The Power and The Honor Foundation - Original MOTU Art Preservation

    The Power and The Honor Foundation is here! It is with great pleasure that we are able to share this exciting new adventure with you, the fans of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power.

    The Power and The Honor Foundation is a fan-funded, non-profit organization that is dedicated to documenting, archiving, and sharing the rich history of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power. As such, we will be sharing some of the most amazing collections of artwork, documents, and toys from their earliest days.

    The Foundation has already secured thousands of pieces from original artists and designers from Mattel and Filmation. In addition to the pieces themselves, we will share their stories to further document the creation and evolution of the characters, toys, cartoons, and merchandise.

    Please make sure to visit our website and follow us on Twitter and Facebook. We have some exciting ways of sharing this artwork with the fans and will keep you updated.

    VERY awesome!
    I've "liked" it for sure.

    MOTU and POP were some of the last great eras of great animation, packaging and hand-designed artwork. I'm glad someone is helping to preserve it!

    Can't say I blame them.
    People take artwork like this all the time and try to make a buck with it, or use it on their own site without permission.
    I'm sure you can thank those people for the watermarks.

    The watermarks don't bother me too much.

    I cannot wait to see what else is in store, especially in the POP department.

    Don't worry, you will have a chance to see plenty of fully restored images with no watermarks. Be patient, we have great plans
    This is only a small appetizer

    I'm getting in on this. The page looks good and I can't wait to see some more good stuff. Those toy samples are pretty decent.

    Can't wait to see what you guys got.

    Can't wait to see all the things you will unveil in future.

    Will you be planning for anything special in honor of MOTU's 30th Anniversary?

    This sounds like fun. I am curious though, who are the people who funded this non-profit organization? Clearly someone wanted it (heck, I am for it), but was it corporate, some fans, weird 80's trend buffs? What promts a group to begin this process? I only ask because I wouldn't want the brand cheapened by some schemed up way to make a buck.

    I'm 100% sure that isn't the motive. I think it's fans who genuinely want to share these treasures with other fans.
