"I Have The Power!"

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe made their retail debut in 1982 as executives at Mattel wanted their own line of action figures to compete with Kenner's blockbuster Star Wars toys. Masters of the Universe went on to huge success in the 80s and spawned comics, a cartoon series and a movie produced by Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus for their company Cannon Group. Released in 1987, the film stars Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella. It would go on to become a cult classic and notably became one of Cannon's last films. Featuring a blockbuster score by Bill Conti (Rocky, Karate Kid, For Your Eyes Only) we are proud to offer this score as a 500 unit limited edition.

This edition features different cover art as well as newly commissioned liner notes by composer Edwin Wendler. For the notes, we wanted to get a composer's point of view on the score (which is something we want to do more of on future projects). Disc one is presented as the full score while disc two features the original 1987 soundtrack album. There is a whole new generation of fans collecting the toys and watching the old cartoon series. A new film is coming out later this year which should create major excitement with fans. This is a great opportunity for new fans (and old ones who missed out on previous releases!) to pick up this soundtrack and enjoy what we feel is one of Bill Conti's best scores. Get them while they last!

If this release is only about the liner notes and the cover, I'll have to opt out as I need the money and, most of all, space for other soundtracks. I "donate my copy of this release" to someone who missed out on the last one.
It is a beautiful soundtrack. "Time to go" is a gut wrenching tear jerker, beautifully performed by the orchestra. Every time I'm surprised how high those violins are able to be pushed.
The film is disappointing even if I put on my "association induced compensation glasses" but the soundtrack is a full blown high value contribution to the world of high quality music.

If anyone hasn't bought this soundtrack yet: get it and you will have the power.

I sincerely wish for you that this release will be very profitable but most of all a rewarding endeavor.

IF only all posts that were more geared towards, "I'm not buying this, but" were worded so elegant and kind as yours, this whole forum would be a better place. You have the exact RIGHT attitude Disco Stu. Thanks for the note about that gorgeous cue and also let's hope they sell out so more goodies can come!

Apparently, this is one of the most popular scores ever. Now in its fifth CD release.

God, I hope the previous releases mean this one will stick around for a little bit.

The Intrada one stuck around for like 2 years after we had our quick sell out

At 500 units this bad boy will probably go fast. Its such an awesome score!

Thanks for this. Missed it the last time. Still remember that great opening in the film with the music as Skelator makes his entrance. Shame the film nose-dived after that first bit! Could have been so great. The music made up for it though.

The great mysteries of life:

1. The Unified Field Theory
2. What rhymes with "orange"?
3. Masters of the Universe going out of print, like ever
