The Summer of 2021 has brought with it something the Butan fam have been asking for. From significant requests we have established a range called ‘Timeless Classics.’
‘Timeless Classics’ allows us to bring your favorite ranges and stories back for another opportunity to refresh the garments in your wardrobe but also relive a quintessential moment. First in line this summer is ‘The Masters Of The Continent’ which pays homage to the ‘He-Man’ franchise.
He Man and The Masters Of The Universe is an American animated series that was massively popular in the 80’s and made its way to South Africa. The show is set in Eternia where Prince Adam is able to call on secret powers when he holds Sword of Power. With the sword in hand he proclaims the words, “By the power of Grayskull” transforming him to He Man, the most powerful man in the universe. He Man uses his power to defend Eternia from the evil force that is Skeletor who seeks to destroy the fortress of Grayskull where He Man draws his power.
With this considered and using the impact of this pop culture we gave the He Man and The Masters Of The Universe our own African twist. The result is Masters of The Continent.
Originally released in 2016 and remaining true to its original story we created a Zulu warrior who fights a sangoma rival like He Man was fighting against Skeletor. Our story though is for African kids who often do not have superheroes to look up to. This story of The Masters of The Continent gives the African child an opportunity to savour the moment in having an African superhero.
The Masters Of The Continent is released as two t-shirt graphics with one adorning the Zulu Warrior, our hero of the story and the other the sangoma that is the nemesis to our superhero.
The Timeless Classics ‘Masters Of The Continent’ is now available from select Sportscene stores (Sandton, Canal Walk, Gateway, Menlyn, Vaal Mall, Goldfields Mall, Clearwater Mall, Greenacres, Westville Pavilion), Shesha stores, Jack Lemkus, Madaiza, select Sneaker Edition stores, Sneaker World and Johno’s Skate Shop.
