Cinefantastique Volume 18 No. 2/3
March 1988 Article

Articles from the March '88 issue of Cinefantastique-

The first spotlights the makeup work from the film. Check out the unused Skeletor mask (I prefer the one in the film personally) and Gwildor without his hair! Also of note- The article talks about an unfilmed scene of the Sorceress healing Julie, and confirmation that Langella had input on how the Skeletor makeup was handled.

The same issue also has a review of the film. The writer has a few good points, but I obviously like the film a bit more than he did ;)

Movie Memorabilia:
German Film Card

Picked this up on eBay for $1.50 the other day-

Here was the description from the auction:

Offered is a German film card from MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. A unique promotional item offered in Germany is called a film card. On one side of the 4"x6" item is an image of what the German poster looks like. The reverse has information about the film. These cards, first printed in 1978, are unique because a collector can see that the German poster often differs from its American counterpart.

Seemed cool... and you can't beat the price! Now if there are any German fans out there who'd like to translate it, please do!
