Masters of the Universe – Checklists

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

The early Masters of the Universe prototypes were a trio of macho figures with the idea that He-Man would span many action settings, much like G.I. Joe or Mattel’s own Big Jim line. The figures were designed with simplicity in mind and the male form exaggerated in its heroic proportions.

Repurposed Big Jim figures were bulked out to super-musculature with modeling clay and then molded in plaster and given painted sheet wax outfits. There was a soldier who literally had a neck-breaking tank gun on his face, a fantasy spaceman with a suspiciously Boba Fett style helmet and rocket pack, and a familiar-looking barbarian.

I have been building this database of action figures since 2004 and I now have more than 60,000 action figure prices, checklists and guides in this database, and it’s growing bigger every week!!

This is probably the most comprehensive list of action figures available online and covers virtually every figure that was been produced between 1964-2010.

Each figure listed year, license, manufacturer, title, set and character. For example, 1989 >> Toy Biz >> Spider-man >> The New Animated Series >> Series 8: Spider Wars >> Hydro-Man.

Other information includes accessories, rarity, product number (if available) and a “value”.

DISCLAIMER

Please note that all prices are for informational purposes only and are NOT a solicitation or offer to buy any of the items quoted.

When researching for these articles I used many different online and offline retailers and auctions sites to get an average value AT THE TIME of writing the article.

As such they will almost definitely be incorrect as prices and values are in constant flux and change, much like the stock exchange.

Please check my articles and videos on how to grade and value your action figures for up to date prices.
