Toy Commercial Tuesday: He-Man Slime Pit & Fright Zone

Today we’ve got a double dose of creepy He-Man and the Masters of the Universe related toys for Toy Commercial Tuesday. First up, the Slim Pit:

I have very distinct memories of getting this toy as a kid. For some reason I feel like it might have been one of the last He-Man toys I got, but I’m not sure why. Anyway, the idea is to trap your toys with the monster hand and then tip the skull down and cover them with green slime. Amazing. What a perfect toy for little boys. The only problem was that, if you didn’t clean your He-Man figures off soon enough they’d get all crusty and gross. I think a few of my figures might still have remnants from the Slime Pit. I’ve still got the Pit in my storage unit and fully intended to bust it out when the kid is old enough to play with toys (assuming they pass my course on being nice to your toys with at least a 90%).

On the other hand, I have no memory of the Fright Zone, though it looks like it would have gone with my Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain Playsets perfectly. It’s a little on the simple side with an included puppet creating the bulk of the fun, but I’m sure I would have come close to killing for a full set of He-Man playsets including this one and the Eternia one which I was blissfully unaware of until adulthood. In fact, I still might do some damage for these toys…
