    In the sense that it is more grist for the "not enough people are interested in He-Man to make a $75M-$100M movie," I think it does. And of course most fans would be quite disappointed with a movie...

    It really is fascinating to see how the line was marketed to retailers - in other words, how they sold the property as a money-making proposition to adults.

    It also kinda makes you cringe a bit.

    I had never looked at the actual prices on these... $27!?!?!?! For one figure?

    Alas, I can't think of a reason I'd be down that way again.
  7. Hamilton Mall, Mays Landing, NJ - MOTUC Display

    So, I imagine one of you posters on here must be affiliated with this store, but, in case not, I was in the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing, NJ, and, although I am not a collector of MOTU Classics (or...

    I know it isn't "proven," and probably never will be, but I'd consider "Savage" He-Man a mail-in exclusive of some sort.

    My theory wasn't so much that it was from a specific store in Louisville, more that it was interesting that we have two posters claiming three figures all in the Louisville area (one poster said he...

    To answer one of my own questions, I just remembered (and am pretty sure) that Prince Adam was a mail away before he was available regularly. Perhaps he was the free one you got with that coupon?

    I know; this whole topic combines two of my favorite 1980s-themed topics: action figures and Unsolved Mysteries. Too bad Robert Stack has passed away, would love to figure out how to get a (parody)...

    I read this thread from time to time with interest, and rayman1971 has me convinced. Two details here stand out to me:

    The mention of Children's Palace.

    The mention of Louisville, KY.

    Question: if the first two G.I. Joe films had no bearing on the development & release of a MOTU film, why would the performance of the third installment in the G.I. Joe series be the difference-maker?

    I don't know, Arkangel - you're asserting proof of a negative here. If there's no evidence of something's existence, then it is of course likely that no one knows it exists... I'd be willing to bet...

    I have been following the mystery of this figure for some time, and two things keep striking me (the following is all purely conjecture):

    1) It seems to be an article of faith at this point that...

    There is a mid-80s Jackie Chan movie from China in which the climactic scene takes place in some department store, presumably in Hong Kong. In a few sequences, you can see MOTU merchandise hanging...

    I have also had similar dreams, though I usually find carded Super Powers (the 1984-1986 DC line by Kenner) and/or carded Batman/DC Comics Super Heroes (the 1989 Batman film lines and Super Powers...

    MOTU is, to a certain degree, doomed by what it is. I consider myself a casual fan of the franchise, but that's not really accurate: if I am one of the several hundred people checking this forum...

    I know it wouldn't constitute proof by any means, but I continue to be amazed that no one out there has ever come forward and at least CLAIMED to remember exactly where they got their savage He-Man...

    Exactly. I still remember getting the "hooded Cobra Commander" figure through a mail-in offer; I had to collect UPC symbols from other G.I. Joe figures.

    Man, I so had this Christmas. Still remember it. I opened package after package - it seemed to go on forever - and in them was one He-Man figure after another. I remember I even "found" one more...

    For some reason when I was a kid, I had no interest in seeing the live action MOTU movie. It just looked bad to me or something. So, I never did see it - until my wife and I got Netflix earlier...

    I have to say, this whole mystery has captured my fascination, and I was unaware thre even was any question until an hour ago.

    It is? Just cause the dude is bare-chested? Or am I not getting internet sarcasm?

    I mean, let's be honest, one way a potential movie might go - and I'm sure this is an unspoken fear of many on...
