I found this in the trivia section of "Conan The Barbarian" on imdb.com. Wow.

The Mattel Toy Company started to make some Conan action figures, but after viewing the film, the executives realized that they couldn't afford to be associated with a film with such graphic sex and violence. They gave their doll blonde hair, called him "He-man", and thus created "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" (1983).

I think I'd read or heard that a long time ago, but reading that just now brought it all back. It's weird where stuff like that comes from. I remember, even as a kid, being able to recognize when one toy series copied another, like how Transformers copied Go-Bots and made it rich off them. I would hope if I had grown up in the nineties I would have been able to recognize that Pokémon had copied Digimon and made it rich off them.
