Masters of the Universe Commemorative Series
In 2000, Mattel did the ultimate re-release of a classic franchise when they produced the very limited Masters of the Universe Commemorative Series. This series was produced strictly for the fans with pieces limited to as little as 1,000, and at the most, 15,000. Right off the bat it fetched a premium on secondary markets, with the limited "Legends of Eternia" set selling for as much as $1,500.00, and individual figures selling for upwards of $200.00 a piece.
Produced using the exact same molds and color schemes of the originals, the series' intentions was to give fans an opportunity to get these iconic figures from their past at a reasonable price - Yet supply never really met demand, and today some of them sell for more than the originals.
Each figure came packaged on its original card from the 80's, but then was also sealed inside of a black metallic window box. To say it's some beautiful packaging is an understatement.
In total there were two series of figures. Series one contained ten figures, and series two contained only six. We're not sure why a third series and beyond was never produced as their was clearly a demand for the figures.
