ROGER SWEET




Roger Sweet's career spans decades and his list of accomplishments is longer than most people could take credit for. He was a Lead Designer working for Mattel's Preliminary Design Department during much of the 1970ís and 1980ís, best known for originating the idea of He-man and the Masters of the Universe.

Although he is best known for originating He-Man, (and She-Ra), there is so much more. Roger originated the Dragon Walker vehicle, and co-created the Castle Grayskull playset. Other Mattel projects include the Space 1999 Moon Base Alpha Playset, Hot Wheels related items, the Star Maker Guitar, and the Suckerman Throw Toy.

Roger also managed the preliminary design department for the Marvel Secret Wars line. His main contributions were the Doom Roller vehicle, the Freedom Fighter vehicle/playset and the Tower of Doom playset.

Deeply involved in the design and development of the Barbie toy line, Roger was the creator of the Western Barbie (and her horse Dallas). Western Barbie was Mattel's best selling Barbie for six consecutive years. He also created the Barbie Moped/Scooter and several playsets. They include the Tropical Flower Shop, the Wet N' Wild Water Park, and the Barbie Magical Mansion. The Magical Mansion was the most ambitious undertaking of all with both interior and exterior lighting as well as light up fireplace and small working appliances in the kitchen.

Rogerís career is far from limited to the Mattel toy line. He was a designer for both Boeing and Lockheed. His contributions to the airline industry, just to name a few, include designing electronic consoles, the Two Floor Galley System for the Boeing 747 as well as designing the 747 interiors for both American and United Airlines.

Other companies heís served include Hamilton-Beach, Rubbermaid, Proctor & Gamble, Hoover, and Fisher-Price working on product design as well as packaging.
