Editorial Reviews

This was a revival of the classic 80's cartoon He-man and the Masters of the Universe for the modern age, it focused on the early adventures of Prince Adam, who, having just become Eternia's most powerful guardian He-Man, had to learn how to handle his new powers, and lead his allies into battle against the evil Skeletor. With the aid of his own Evil Warrior henchmen, Skeletor schemes to blanket Eternia in chaos, and rule over the planet in dominion. Only He-Man, guided and advised by the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull, stands in his way.

With the aid of his trusted friends and Masters, he vows to end Skeletor's evil and the other evils that plague Eternia. The battle is joined as Good and Evil collide in a fight for Eternia's fate!

This unique take on the retro fan favorite delighted and entertained the children of this decade as it did to those living in the 80's.

Here is the second 13 episodes from the award-winning series.

5.0 out of 5 stars BCI Announces Volume 2 of the Excellent 2002 Series February 18, 2008
BCI Eclipse (the company responsible for the entire He-Man/ She-Ra DVD releases) has just announced the exciting news that the second volume of the 2002 animated series is coming out on DVD on May 27.

Debuting on Cartoon Network in 2002 from Mike Young Productions, the first season of the show ran for 26 episodes (the first 13 were released on Feb 19). This collection represents volume 2 (there will be 3 total). Considering the order of the first 13-episoide release, it appears as though BCI is going to keep the continuity of the original airing in which case this collection should contain the following episodes:

Underworld
The Mystery of Anwat Gar
The Monster Within
Roboto's Gambit
Trust
Orko's Garden
Buzz-Off's Pride
Snake Pit
The Island
The Sweet Smell of Victory
Separation
The Council of Evil Part 1
The Council of Evil Part 2

Like all of BCI's incredible releases, the second volume of the 2002 series is slated to be packed with creative staff commentary, bonus materials, and a pair of collector's art cards. Fans of the series are anxiously awaiting BCI's announcement of the third volume which will consist of the 13 episodes that made up the second (and final) season of this excellent show.

3.0 out of 5 stars No closed captions OR subtitles! March 24, 2008
Some people, like me, do not have perfect hearing. I appreciate it when a dvd isn't closed captions has at least subtitles. These DVDs have neither. If it had one or the either, it would be worth four stars.

Come on BCI, get with the program!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intro of TWO-BAD & STINKER October 30, 2009
By F. CRUZ
Verified Purchase
In this volume you get to see TWO-BAD before being TWO-BAD...2 individual hunters with different names refering to their later name that Skeletor united for a failure. In the old series TWO-BAD was already TWO-BAD, & there wasn't any reason for it. Plus you get to see STINKER & who he was before being STINKER. An action figure from that never made it in the old series, here you get to see him several times. & so on & on are new introductions to new Masters of the universe. It didn't even crossed my mind that SYKLONE was oriental,cause in the old series he wasn't & it wasn't even explained his origin. The series still focus on HE-MAN VS. SKELETOR but with some new & interesting inductions that never made it in the old series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original August 20, 2009
By Momof2

I really like the take this cartoon has on the He-Man story. I think it's better than the original in terms of animation, action and story telling. I wish this series hadn't gotten canceled when it was just hitting it's stride.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Progress to Deeper and Darker Stories April 12, 2009
Verified Purchase
This set has some of the lighter episodes like those from volume 1, but also builds more complex back stories based them. I've seen this entire series at least three times through since the original TV airings, and they just keep getting better. This particular volume seems the weakest of the three, but it plays such an important role in the 2002 mythology that I can't fault this set for anything at all. What can I say, it's an awesome dvd set. Whether it's Roboto's or Stinkor's origin - or you just want to see Skeletor finally make an intelligent power play for Eternia... this set has some great stories.

By this volume, your knowledge of classic and 2002 MOTU is not necessarily needed, BUT being versed in the mythology is consistently rewarded with amazing tidbits in every episode. If this series was your first experience with Masters of the Universe, then it won't hit you the same way as the boy or girl who grew up seeing the characters / toys / comics / etc. of classic He-Man and She-Ra. These are not stand alone episodes for small kids to just view casually... no, these are the episodes that build and provide the groundwork for future darker stories in Volume 3. And oh by the way, anytime these episodes are labeled as a multipart story - prepare yourself, these are usually the most shocking. For fans of the classic series, the 2002 series is a MUST SEE.

And of course, the extra features are just as fun to watch as the show itself. The creative team behind this series did an amazing job - because they are as much fans as the viewers. BCI similarly devoted a great deal of attention into this DVD set, art cards, and packaging. Only thing negative I can say is that this series is way too short. Once I start watching volume 1, I then have to watch 2 and then watch 3. I really hope that new interest in He-Man toys will lead to more of the 2002 storyline - I would even settle for a direct to DVD movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANKS AMAZON, FIRST PURCHASE August 15, 2008
Verified Purchase
I placed my order on 07/21/08,i live in Nicaragua. The estimated time of arrival from amazon was August the 27th. I got it August the 7th, i came from work and this AMAZON.COM box was waiting for me. I grew up with the original series from the 80's. I saw a few episodes of this new series on cartoon network and i was immediately hooked. Great animation, some characters that never showed up in the original are here and their looks have improved. I only waited 2 weeks and a couple of days, my fear was that it might not get here but it did. I'm going to place my order for volume 3 vs SNAKE MEN right now. I'll eventually buy the first volume, even though we all know there is a flaw in one of the episodes, some minutes missing. But the first 3 origin episodes are worth the package, and what a package it is. TO THE GUYS WHO CREATED THIS SHOW, please make another volume/season, even if its direct to dvd. I'll buy it, im going to place my new order now. THANKS AMAZON.

As a fan of the 80's cartoon, this rendition has kept something essential about all the characters, but updated it, removed the cheese factor and some of the youngness out of it... Read more
