Dark Horse has been cranking out some amazing video game art books lately, but they're shifting gears with The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. It looks like they really went above and beyond with this one.
The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe from "Pixel Dan" Eardley and Val Staples is a massive 712-page hardcover tome that includes "in-depth overviews of every item in several complete toy lines, including: 1982's Masters of the Universe, 1985's Princess of Power, 1989's He-Man, 2002's Masters of the Universe relaunch, and 2008's Masters of the Universe Classics". It also features interviews and designer commentary from the toy creators.
