    New member and cool vintage letter from He-man

    Hello, I recently found a cool letter that my parents had saved in a scrapbook for me. When I was a kid I had almost every figure to date except Ram Man. By the time Christmas came around my parents could not find one anywhere. For my list to santa, I only put Ram Man. It was all I wanted. They ended up writing a letter to Mattel who sent me a Ram Man and two "new" figure that were not out yet. I also received a letter from He-Man. My parent saved this letter and I thought I would share it with you fans. This letter has started me collecting sealed vintage MOTU now! Can't wait to get Ram Man again.

    Thanks, I kinda remembered the story growing up. Hard to believe my parents kept the letter all these years. I can't imagine a toy company doing this nowadays.

    Welcome megatron1138! I swear to you that the same thing happened to me when I was a kid!! I wanted Ram Man and my parents couldn't find him anywhere, and I believe that she wrote Mattel and that's how I was able to get one. I don't believe they held on to the letter though. The fact that it happened to you too, and that you have the proof, lends me to believe I'm not just making that story up in my head and it actually did happen

    That is an awesome story!! Thanks for sharing it with us. Oh..and welcome to He-Man.org!!!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    That really is a cool story. The Ram-Man that "happened to be on hand," was it loose or packaged when you got it?
