He-Man and the Masters of the Universe



The first DVD set to officially hit the market is a "10 Best Episode" 2 DVD set from the original 1983 series. The He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - Best 10 Episode Collector's Edition arrived at my store on Tuesday, July 12, 2005 (of course I purchased the first one we had)... I haven't really had time to watch it yet. I have to stay overnight at work while contractors install our new P.O.S. (piece of shit, er.. point of sale... what's the difference?) I'll watch it in our breakroom that we transformed into a theater tonight... nice size screen... it's about 25-30 ft!

A poll taken at He-Man.org, the most powerful He-Man fansite in the universe, and was used to determine the 10 episodes which would be published on this 2-DVD set. The top 5 episodes from Season 1 and the top 5 from Season 2 were chosen to occupy the digital realm of this release, along with many extras Here are the complete contents of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - Best 10 Episode Collector's Edition, counting down the episodes to the most favorite ones from the polls:

#5: "Evilseed"

LOL! I do about 75% pf my blogging with my cell phone.

I can't go... I have to visit stores in the district and verify that they are prepared for mid-year physical inventory.
