    This is what I've been wanting for awhile now. These were THE toys of the 80's. Give me more information,art and pics of the toy line.

    Last week I saw the first 48 pages of the book - It looks FANTASTIC - Dark Horse are doing an incredible job with the layout! :)

    Let's just say the first 48 pages covers only 15 episodes...featuring roughly 120 images and 16,000+ words - This book is going to be an absolute MONSTER! :)

    Wow, a monster tome indeed! If the book continues at this page rate for every 15 episodes then it'll be around 416 pages to cover He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and another 298 pages for She-Ra: Princess of Power.

    Before Dark Horse is finished we may need to find the most powerful bookshelf in the universe just to hold everything.

    It's exciting to see all this interest and care going into new books for MOTU, I can hardly wait to see what Dark Horse will do next.

    haha I was about to say the exact same thing. I have the Art book which I can't look at enough and my Mini Comics collection is on its way next week. Most likely will end up with this one as well and love what I'm hearing about it. Dark Horse is knocking it out of the park for MOTU!

    Very cool -- is it mainly an episode guide or does it primarily feature behind-the-scenes artwork and info on the development of the show?

    I hope if you agree with this and would like to see She-Ra on the cover of this book in an equal way to He-Man you will consider letting Dark horse know how you feel. I myself just left them a nice message on their Facebook group (which is easy to find) saying why I feel the cover should be looked at again.

    You're right! He-man and She-ra look so sexy together.

    Everything reported so far indicates the content will be of excellent quality for both He-Man and She-Ra.

    Release date is this year August 30th.

    You can pre-order it already from Amazon.

    Wouldn't it better if there was a book collecting all those stories like the minicomic one?

    I'm on the same page. I'd love to see those in their own book.

    Is that what you meant, mikerobertschamp? Because it also can read like you are saying this Filmation guide won't be complete without those books included.
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    That's what I meant it's own book, not in this book, I don't need anything to get in the way of this great up and coming source book. I feel each area should get a book, we got art of, mini comics, animated series on its way. Do one with regular comics and magazines, one with golden/ladybird books and audio plays. Then make a second animated series with 200X, and NA. That would give us the ultimate source guide books point blank period.

    Some awesomeness from James Eatock! Brings back memories of the old school episode review site.

    Could it be for the upcoming Dark Horse MOTU Filmation guide? Guess we'll find out in August!

    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Me too. I'm hoping they decide to tackle the MotUverse Encyclopedia, a much long-needed reference to all the characters, races/species, giants, beasts, vehicles, weapons/artifacts, magic/spells, planets/galaxies/dimensions, regions/countries/cities/villages/locations, and buildings (with illustrations, maps, cross-sections, summary articles, thematic lists, cross-references, notes on the different canon versions/interpretations, etc). If they put into it the level of care they seem to be putting into this Filmation guide, a 1,000-page Dark Horse MotUverse Encyclopedia could be totally epic!

    Epic, yes. Because what you described would be an astounding feat. The amount time and resources that it would take to make that kind of book boggles the mind.

    The beauty of episode guide is that James and Zadoc had done the episode review site back in the day. After that, James had already done the unofficial MOTU guide. He fortunately had a foundation upon which he could build. But even with all of that, it took over half a year for the book content to be created.

    The minicomic book was no different. Even with original comics to scan, it still took a massive amount of hours. Everyone who worked on that gave up a half a year of all their free time.

    And I know Tim and Steve Seeley spent a similar amount of time on the Art of MOTU book.


    Imagine the type of masochism involved from anyone who would work on your dream project.
