Like many other film projects, the production crew on Masters were given special jackets while making the movie. The MOTU crew jacket was made by "On Stage Design" (conveniently located in California). The back of the jacket features a beautifully embroidered "Masters" logo, with the film's tagline "Coming To Earth 1987" and "Canon Films Inc." placed directly beneath it.
Each jacket was individually embroidered with the crew member's name, followed by the division of production in which they worked. In the case of this jacket, the worker's name was Ben, apparently from the stunt department.
The credits from the film list a Ben Scott as working in the stunt department. Ben Scott is the son of the film's stunt coordinator Walter Scott (who also portrayed Julie's father). In all likelihood, this jacket belonged to him.

This piece of art was part of a batch of pre-production paintings for the film sold on eBay recently. The painting depicts a scene of He-Man and Julie hiding amongst the trees, while an army of Skeletor's troops moves from the city towards them. While this scene does not appear in the film, the He-Man and Julie pairing survives in the scene where He-Man defends her from the "curious quartet". Of interest here is the early take on He-Man's appearance. While the sword is fairly close to what would be seen in the film, He-man's attire looks very much like the vintage "Battle Armor" action figure...
