Tom Whalen's Masters of the Universe

If you grew up in the past half century, then your childhood was probably filled with toys made by Mattel. My childhood was filled with a ton of He-Man figures and those M.U.S.C.L.E. minis could be found all over my room. I always wanted the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and a Mattel Overboard from Back to the Future Part II and childhood me would probably be shocked at which one of those officially released Mattel products future-Peter ended up owning.

A new art show will be opening up at Gallery 1988 next week called Mattel: A Tribute To 70 Years Of Toys. The show, curated by artist Dave Perillo, is a small group show that features different artists take on some of Mattel Brand most iconic toys from over the past 70 years. Hit the jump to find out more, see some artwork from the show, and learn what great artists (such as Dave Perillo and Tom Whallen — yes, thats his kick-ass Masters of the Universe piece above) are involved.
