Princess of Power was Mattel's 1985 spin off range to the hugely popular Masters of the Universe collection. This new series was primarily aimed at girls, however proved quite popular with boys too. Filmation, who provided the He-Man cartoon where signed up to promote the toyline again with a cartoon series which spawned 93 episodes.
I remember the teaser trailer for She-Ra which was after every He-Man episode, I was desperate to watch it.
Once the show had aired I immediatly wanted a She-Ra, The shops where ready. I had seen Princess of Power already whilst I was collecting Golden Girl but hadn't put She-Ra and Princess of Power together then.
Collecting Princess of Power has a rather bittersweet memory for me as my parents split rather badly during this time 1985/86 so I buried myself into my toys and She-Ra was in the middle of it.
