With these fantastic performers behind our characters, it’ll be crazy easy to immerse yourself in the swords and sorcery of our epic sci-fi soap opera!” – Kevin Smith

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds like an interesting series based on the creative team involved and the incredible voice-casting. Truth be told, I was not the most ardent of followers of the original “Masters Of The Universe” cartoon series but watched it occasionally. I did like the fact that there was a host of action figures to collect if you were a fan of that kind of stuff. A lot of my friends collected the Mattel line of figures and its amazing to find the characters still being popular to this very day. As far as I was concerned, I was most focused on the “GI Joe” series and their offerings. What do you readers think about this little bit of news? Are you excited for the new series? As you might expect, as news continues to come for this new show I will feature it here on the website once its available. See you next time.
