When Mattel started the Masters of the Universe line in 2008, they really had no idea what it would eventually evolve into. The plan was simple, release an updated modern version of a Masters character every month and sell it online. Pretty soon however, they realized that what they had was something special, and the line took off like a rocket. Little by little, they would pepper in larger scaled figures and beasts into the line. One year they actually released a vehicle. But the one thing that they were adamant that would probably not happen…ever, that many fans were clamouring for from the very start was a new modern version of Castle Grayskull.

The first 2 Masters of the Universe figures I ever got were Stratos and Zodac. One was a strange grey furry looking monkey man with feathered arms and a jet pack. And the other was this cool looking futuristic dude with a gun who oddly enough had demonic 3 toed feet. If it wasn’t for the odd feet, I would at first glance assumed that Zodac, the futuristic human looking figure was the good guy and that the furry grey dude, Stratos was bad. Turns out I was wrong….kinda.

Years ago…Marvel comics released an interesting set of books called the Marvel Universe Book of the Dead. Now the Marvel Universe ‘series’ was basically Marvel’s version of an encyclopedia (Wikipedia to all you young’uns) where one could learn all they needed to know about their favorite Marvel character. The Book of Dead was pretty self-explanatory, it was also a source of information to Marvel characters who had one thing in common…they were all dead (or at least they were at the time of printing).
