Today, April 28th is Masters of the Universe Day! Yes, such a thing actually exists. Back in 1987, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley commissioned April 28th as Masters of the Universe Day. The day was created in recognition of the "Power Tour" that was in Los Angeles at the time, and thus has been celebrated by He-Man & She-Ra fans since. Honest! So we here at AFJ thought made up a list of 10 Masters of the Universe Classics figures that we thought were marvelous! Yes, marvelous! We stuck with the biggest line of the MOTU figures (to date), the MattyCollector run. Why? This way we would have more to pick from. We also stayed away from your basic He-Man and Skeletor figures. Enjoy Junkies! Remember, you have the power! #AFJ4LIFE
