Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight is currently hosting an exhibition that brought the memories flooding back. The theme of the show is He-Man, the toy cult phenomenon that so many young boys became devoutly engaged in. I was way into He-Man as a child and had practically every character in my toybox. I even used to make my own custom He-Men by taking them apart, making new costumes and weapons with plastic soda bottles. I would even melt new parts onto my He-Men toys by heating them in the microwave (sounds toxic now). Anyway, as you can see the show is featuring the work of several artists, all of whom interpreted a beloved part of their childhood in a different and unique way.
