It would be great if Andy Serkis did motion capture performances for the characters and major voice actors doing the voices.

In lieu of that, I would probably prefer Liam Hemsworth as Prince Adam (AKA He-Man).

I agree.  I can see Cate Blanchett doing Shadow Weaver's voice.

Do you have any suggestions which actors I should pull out?  

I want it to be a simple list 15 to 20 people.  And there is no more "Starmeter" on list. 

I need to pull out 7 and can't decide.

Hi LD, can you check out your re-push request for Wolverine casting? There's a minor problem with it but one that can be fixed easily but only by you. Jess and I left brief replies to your re-push request; if you address that little issue, we can repost the poll. Thanks! : )

"I HAVE THE POWER!"

Video clips of all "Masters of the Universe" He-Man transformations (newest to oldest.)

My favorite is the first one!

1. Masters of the Universe (2002) (TV Series) 


2. Masters of the Universe (1987)


3. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983) (TV Series)


80s fantasy sci-fi nostalgia instrumental music - gets you in the mood for Masters of the Universe:

Super 80s fantasy style music by a band from our current time. Music reminds of Stranger Things, Ghostbusters, Jem and The Holograms etc.  I see the songs "Happy Birthday" or "Looking Glass" in "Stranger Things" tv show.

LD,

Thanks for the recommendation.

You may find this book interesting. It was an assigned text for a class in humor I took in college close to 40 years ago. The resident Shakespeare expert taught the course.

Netflix's The Toys That Made Us (2017) 

Very informative.  I got a better understanding of who is the person responsible for creating He-Man and Masters of the Universe.  Great show, looking forward to more episodes.

Image result for toys that made us he-man



I love the new He-Man collectables, but super expensive.

LD,

Thanks again for recommending Netflix's The Toys That Made Us (2017). I've only completely seen the episodes for He-Man and GI Joe. Unbeknownst to me, my daughter and wife started watching this before your recommendation.
