Video: Masters of the Universe?

There is trouble brewing in Eternia. Trouble over who is the real master of the universe,... the He-Man universe. Toy Masters is a documentary that covers the creation and history of the He-Man franchise (toys, cartoons, etc..) as well the ongoing battle over who actually created the brand.
I was a huge He-Man dork, had Castle Grayskull and watched the cartoon religiously. I never questioned the over the top homo-eroticism of it or Aryan uber human undertone (sporting the Nazi Grand Iron cross on his chestplate). I'm happy to see a documentary on the subject in which the participants seem happy to talk shit about each other. Check out a 7 minute preview below...
