Masters of the Universe Classics – Adventures of the 8-Back: Part 1

I decided to take some of my Masters of the Universe Classics figures with me on vacation this fall with the hope of being able to take some pictures of them “out in the wild.” When trying to decide what figures to bring (I wanted to take about 50, haha), I decided to make a theme out of celebrating the characters and art of the vintage line’s “8-Back” characters. These are first eight Masters figures: He-Man, Man-at-Arms, Teela, Stratos, Skeletor, Beast Man, Mer-Man, and Zodac, and their adventures out in the great outdoors of Eternia. I took enough pictures for several installments, and I will bring them here periodically throughout the next several weeks.

Hopefully these capture the feel of those 8-Backs that we love, but please enjoy and don’t be afraid to leave a comment below!
