Dirty Horror Memory Lane: The Evil Horde’s ‘Fright Zone’ (1985)

I am a self-proclaimed He-Man junkie.  Growing up, I pretty much had every figure and every playset, including the dangerous (according to my Mom) Slime Pit.  But one of the playsets that got lost in the shuffle was The Evil Horde’s ‘Fright Zone‘!

Well that was fun.  I’m actually thinking of grabbing one of these off of eBay soon just based off of the nostalgia alone.  I don’t have kids, so I would be playing with it by myself. Don’t judge.  But anyway, I was always more in favor of the ‘bad guys’ in the He-Man collection – so I gravitated towards things like The Slime Pit and Snake Mountain before I would go to Castle Grayskull.  Which is why I loved the Fright Zone so much.  And I could actually control the giant snake with my hand and gobble up all of the good guys.  If you need any more proof as to why Fright Zone is amazing, just look at that kid’s face below in the pic!  He’s having a blast.  And how about that hair too?!
