    My bilingual version of the mini-comic "The Vengence of Skeletor". (English/French) It came with my vintage Skeletor in '82 or '83. Don't remember if it was an 8-back or not. No idea why this comic...

    I knew a kid who always seemed to get the new figures long before I saw them in the stores. Contacted him recently, and he doesn't remember having a brown-haired He-Man. Which leads me to believe it...

    Bought one off eBay a few years ago. 3 broken tracks and several pieces missing. Since it was nearly $100 back when I was a kid, it's no wonder I didn't get for Christmas. I had the entire line as a...

    I still don't see how there isn't any real proof of this figure's origin after all these years. I agree that parents probably would not remember what or when they ordered for their kids. But it seems...

    Sorry for the confusion. Scare Glow is right. Most of us are frustrated. Voice tone doesn't come across good in print. I said "for the last time" because I've posted my feelings about the POP...

    My point was that we should know what figures are coming out BEFORE we sign up for a subscription. If you want them all that's fine. I'm not putting anyone down for wanting all those figures, but POP...

    I'll just buy the ones I want from the secondary market. I can buy most of them cheaper there anyways. ONE figure, with shipping, is $31.43 to my house from Matty Collector. Most are cheaper on eBay,...

    I wouldn't. Because we shouldn't have to do it in the first place. Sounds like a lot of people have had much worse luck with these than I have. But I also didn't renew for 2012 either. In addition to...

    Couldn't agree more. And that's exactly what their doing. That's why I'm not getting a sub for next year. I'm tired of of all these obscure figures that most people don't want. (Seriously, why...

    You're absolutely right. It serves no purpose at all! This whole line is a "nod" to the vintage figures. I don't need a stupid faux wheel that doesn't do anything. They could have used that extra...

    This line isn't ruined for me. But increasing the cost for people who don't want the sub is just down right dirty! They have always claimed that production numbers were based on # of subs + some...

    Sounds like a lot of us had the same experience. I don't think I had any figures until about '83. "The Vengence of Skeletor" came with one of my first two figures. (I got 2 at the same time, one of...

    Point Dread was a very early release. I've always wondered why items like Snake Mountain, Fright Zone, etc. didn't come with their own comics/books too.
