Emiliano Santalucia and Josh Van Pelt had the pleasure and honor to meet Erika Scheimer at Power-Con in Los Angeles.
Ms. Scheimer had chance to visit the exibition sponsored by The Power and The Honor Foundation and take a look a the Catalog Vol. 1.
Ms. Scheimer recently sent us this wonderful letter about the Catalog and the mission of the Foundation which we decided to share with all the He-Man and She-Ra fans.
I want to congratulate you on the publication of “The Power and the Honor Foundation: Catalog Volume One.” It is an incredible volume of material with such a plethora of minute detail about every aspect of the art of Masters of the Universe toy design that anyone interested in MOTU, the toys or the the shows, would love this book! The sheer number of pieces of concept art and toy photographs is amazing and gives the reader a wonderful pictorial history of the evolution of the MOTU toy design like none other that I have seen. There is no doubt that this catalog is a true labor of love of the first order!!
I also want to give my support for “The Power and the Honor Foundation” which made this wonderful publication possible. The idea of collecting and digitally preserving as much of the artwork and material that can be found, twenty to thirty years later, from the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power series for future generations of youngsters to enjoy is an astounding endeavor. That this hard work is being done by fans, artists and even some of the original creators who are inspired by their love of the characters and their stories is a testament to the authenticity of this foundation which is inspired by love, not money!
The Power and The Honor Foundation will be set up at the Garden State Comic Con (http://gardenstatecomiccon.net) in Cherry Hill, NJ on October 8 & 9, 2011. We will have some catalogs available for pick-up if you would like to receive your catalog before they ship. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to pick-up at the show.
If you have not donated but are interested, please stop by our table to check out our catalog in person! We’ll also have a few cool pieces of MOTU history on display.
We do not have a shipping date yet for the catalogs but it should be in the next few weeks. They are en route but we are still waiting for them to arrive at our shipper. The boxes are being prepped and they will be sent out as soon as possible. Once we get an exact date we will post it. If you have donated and not picked up your catalog in person, you will receive an e-mail as soon as it is in the mail. Thanks again for your support.
