He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Erasers (Panosh Place)

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Erasers
Panosh Place

Ah, good old Masters of the Universe Day. A day where fans of the series can enjoy a day in celebration of our favorite heroes and villains from Eternia. Are you celebrating the day?

Masters of the Universe has had some unique merchandising based on the series (Toothpaste tube toppers anyone?), and today we're going to look at one such oddity.

In 1984 Panosh Place released this fabulous set of erasers based on some of the characters from the series. They were so colorful and well designed that they could have indeed been used as stand ins for figures you didn't necessarily have.


There were eight 3 1/2" erasers in total released - Each one packed on their own amazing cardback full of background artwork from the show.


It's interesting to note that for something one would think would be used to erase pencils for every kid across the globe in 1984 there are actually a decent amount of loose ones available in great condition. Perhaps most kids did indeed play with them as opposed to doing school work.

Man-At Arms

This set shouldn't be confused with the Mattel eraser series released in 1985 exclusively to Italy. That set contained artwork more so in line with the standard action figure line and included; He-Man, Skeletor, Man-At-Arms, Beast Man, Stonedar, Rokkon, Whip Lash, Buzz-Off, Hordak, Orko, Leech and Mantenna. It's also near impossible to find any of them - Which is why we won't be showing them here.

Skeletor*Beast Man

Admittedly the cardbacks on the opposite side were lacking in any eye catching detail. A simple black and white logo for Masters of the Universe and Panosh Place as well as the typcial UPC and legal mumbo jumbo - Yawn.


Though it can be challenging to track down all of the characters, surprisingly the majority of them are fairly common on secondary markets. Mint on card ones will set you back roughly $10.00 to $30.00 a piece while loose ones in good condition range from $3.00 to $7.00. That's not too bank breaking for some fantastic (and obscure) He-Man collectibles.

Well, that about does it for us for this post. Check back throughout the day for more MotU fun. If you've got a website with a post for the day feel free to throw the link in the comment section so our readers can head to it.

  1. Great post! I actually had that Skeletor as a kid! I might need to track some of them down, especially since I have a loose eraser collection lol.

    Thanks to you reminding me (again) lol I was able to do a MOTU day post on my blog: http://www.alexistreasures.com/2018/04/masters-of-universe-day.html

    1. I don't think I had any of the erasers as a kid. Sad me.

  2. Oh wow, I think I had the He-Man one as a kid, and I'm pretty sure I had Skeletor, too.
