Where to Buy
Using the Target app still shows Masterverse Galactic Protector He-Man as a pre-order but he is sitting Target stores now! My suggestion is to go to your local Target today if you can, and start by scanning the bar code in the Price Scanner! It seems likely that the most stores will either have this in the back, or in the process of putting it on the shelf. Ask a nice target employee to look up the DPCI Code: 087-26-4522, and get it from the back of the store if it’s not out. Also you can scan the UPC bar code at the price check kioks and it will tell you what stores nearby have it in stock!
- Go to your local Target
- Scan the bar code into the Kiosks machine
- See if it says ” Available at x # of nearby stores”
- If so, first ask an employee at the store you are at to look up the DPCI Code: 087-26-4522
- They can tell you if they have it in stock at the store and if not, ask who does!
- If you don’t have a Target near you or you don’t want to drive around, you can still Pre-order him at Galactic Protector He-Man. He should start to be shipping soon!
Also don’t fret, if the price scanner says 0 on hand, but nearby stores have it, as I found it in a store that the scanner said that. Still ask a Target employee to check their system on their PDA. Most likely if the price scanner Kiosks shows multiple stores nearby with it, it could be that the store you are in actually has it in stock!
The set date for this figure is shown to be February 26th, but the figures started showing up in stores around February 17th and 18th. So just follow the tips we gave you for your best chance to find one!
The Target.com website shows a March 2nd release date. So that might be the day they ship the pre-orders. Galactic Protector He-Man can be purchased on Target.com

History of Galactic Protector He-Man
As a kid, I was out of collecting He-Man toys by the time the New Adventures of He-Man came on the scene, but I really loved the design of the Galactic Protector in vintage form and in Classics! The Battleramblog has a fantastic article entitled HE-MAN: MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE UNIVERSE! (1989) and we encourage you to read it!
The Masters of the Universe Classics line took this figure to an 11 and gave it a really nice deluxe treatment even though it was a standard release of the figure. He-Man has a very cool look with the blue tights and his space armor. He also came with a new hip piece with his unique belt.
Since this figure came with so many different accessories, you can create many combinations to achieve an appearance that you wanted to display proudly on your shelf. While the look is more familiar of his ponytail head sculpt and his chest harness, I actually prefer the helmet and the armor look better, since it resembles his vintage figure.
According to The New Adventure | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom:
As this story opens, space map of the Tri-Solar System, and its twin worlds, beautiful Primus and darkly-scarred Denebria, are shown, along with their moons, Enos and Nordor, respectively. The map indicates various cities and regions, and their relative locations.
The action then kicks in, as we find Captain Hydron and Lieutenant Flipshot, soldiers in Primus’ league of Galactic Guardians, fending off another mysterious attack on Titus, home of Primus’ space observatory. Convinced by this senseless siege that they can wait no longer, the two pile into their command ship, and set out on a time-travel mission to the past, to locate the one man whom the ancient legends foretell can save Primus from ultimate destruction: He-Man. The Galactic Guardians send out a distress message to He-Man, and receive a transmission from planet Eternia. The voice over the radio says that the source of his power, Castle Grayskull, is under siege. The Guardians can help, the voice continues, by transferring Grayskull’s power into their ship until the danger has past. Hydron and Flipshot are more than glad to help, and open a Laser Gate from orbit high above Grayskull, and slowly begin draining the Castle’s fantastic energies into their ship. Little do they realize that the voice that instructed them to do so does not belong to He-Man, but to his mightiest, most evil enemy, Skeletor. Within the Castle, the beautiful falcon-garbed Sorceress appears to a sleeping Prince Adam, alerting him to the peril that threatens to plunder Castle Grayskull. Getting dressed in record time, Adam raises his sword, and invokes the power of Grayskull. The sword flares, then horribly, the power evaporates. The power of Grayskull is no more.
Rushing outside, Adam sights a gloating Skeletor, who is ready to board the Guardians’ starship and finally seize all the power he has sought for so long. Adam fearlessly jumps Skeletor, and as the two struggle, they both are teleported into space. They materialize in front of a stunned Hydron and Flipshot, and as Adam and Skeletor grapple, Adam cries out that they have been tricked. Realizing their error, the time-travellers rally to Adam’s aid. As they hold off Skeletor with their specialized fighting tactics, Adam grabs his sword. Since the power is within the ship, it should be able to help him now. “By the power of Grayskull!” he shouts, just as Skeletor reaches out to grab the sword from him. In a rush of realization, Skeletor suddenly learns He-Man’s most powerful secret. “You?!” he gasps. As they both clutch the sword, a fiery, lightning-charged explosion erupts from it. Skeletor slumps to the floor, burned and badly wounded by the blast, while a voice rings in Adams ears: “By the powers of the past and future joined….” the voice intones, “Prince Adam is no more! You are He-Man! Long live He-Man!” The voice belongs to the Sorceress, who was brought along with the power of Grayskull. She appears now as a floating holographic image, wearing a white and silver digitized costume. He-Man has a new look as well: red, gold, and blue space-age armor. Hydron and Flipshot kneel before the champion they have sought, and tell him of their planet’s need for his heroic aid. He-Man of course pledges his help, but insists that Grayskull’s power be returned to where it belongs first. The Sorceress explains that this is not possible, due to the merging of the powers of present and future. He-Man is concerned: if he embarks on this mission, will he ever see his parents or his friends again? The Sorceress assures him that there is a way, but again insists that they leave for the future. There is evil there, but she cannot see its face. While they speak, the still-smoldering Skeletor crawls away, and finds the starship’s escape pods. Strapping himself into a stolen shuttle, Skeletor screams, “Evil’s face is mine!”
Too late to stop him, our heroes can only watch helplessly as Skeletor’s shuttle pod blasts off, speeding directly into the time-portal created by the starship. Skeletor escapes into the future.The New Adventure | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
