    Today I went to a Mega Toy Fair that we have every year in Adelaide. There were heaps of vintage figures, but there was also a guy selling MOTUC. I could not believe how much he was asking. $55 a figure and $160 for Tytus

    Hey I thought I would share this. I've had the He-Man cake tin for years but this year my wife made the effort to use it for my Birthday cake. What do you guys think?

    She added the text to the shield later but I was pretty impressed for her first try!
    Happy Birthday! Just remember, Tytus' weapon will ruin the paint on Trap Jaw!

    I suppose that is the cost of convenience, though eBay is MUCH cheaper.

    I am so glad to see Carnivus. I am surprised to read some other people's responses. And I can't wait to see more of Grizzlor.

    Yeah, I saw that one too... he had a lot of other stuff that was over-priced as well. I really get annoyed at this kind of profiteering... I actually had a chat to him, and he was from Melbourne. He had come over for the Fair, but he was definitely charging waaaayy more than he should've been.

    On a different note, I saw the original MOTU 1987 Movie on DVD at Kmart today. Pretty cool - but it's a shame that they misspelled Grayskull as "Greyskull" on the back of the DVD cover...

    Next year it will be June 4th-5th. This was my second Toyfair and it was much larger than last years.

    I still can't get over that seller with Tytus for $160. He also had a a few Battle Cats but I don't know how much they were. Maybe Robzy knows
    I don't mind people selling for a few more dollars over cost but not profiteering. There is also a seller there who sells DCUC and they are at the reasonable price of $25.
    With ebay as big as it is now I am suprised these sellers even attempt to price themselves completely out of the game

    Well I have fallen in love with this line again. I ran out of display room and with Tytus, and the other large beasts, I needed to make some more room.

    I still had figs from Moss-Man up to Optikk in the white mailers but now they are free from that prison and soon to be free from their card prison. All my MOTUC has now been moved into the family room as a main feature piece next to my snakes. I have put the loose figs onto the Battle Stands with the MOC figs behind them. It looks pretty good. I will take a pic once I have everything where I want it.

    In doing all this it has made me appreciate the figs, the sculpts and everything else all over again. This really is the best line on the market today. There is nothing that we all ready know about that makes me cringe, from Carnivus to Mo-Larr it is all so superb. I truly believe that anything made in this line will look outstanding, and I am even including non-MOTUC characters like Bravestarr and Blackstar. If they were done in this style they would look just as good.

    Well this has become a bit of a rant but I am stopping myself because I could go on. Sorry if you had to read it

    It has been waning. And having no time lately to peruse the board didn't help much either.

    It is the perfect time to get my passion back, Mo-Larr is just around the corner


    Oh yeah, and something about some new reveals at SDCC but no one cares about that, Mo-Larr is the priority

    Did you say SNAKES. I wanted to put all of my MOTU in the lounge room but the wife didnt want a bar of it, so it went into the 4th bedroom. Also pls feel to rant, because your right in everything you say about these figs. Im looking forward to Mo-Lar aswell. Undecided whether to buy 2 or just the 1.

    RAD! I was hoping someone would have some scans of these! good work Oz-Scott but...these scans you uploaded are lo-res (72dpi) - (or perhaps the he-man.org cms automatically re-sizes the image to 72dpi to save room on the server) ... what dpi did u have the scanner on when u scanned them? make sure its on 300dpi or higher! ...if u have the hi-res scans, could you possibly email them to me? I would love to have these again!

    Who's getting up tonight for Keldor n Friends?

    Yeah, some of the cards are stories and screen shots from the cartoons with voice bubbles and text on the back. Then some of the other cards make up a bigger picture, like Skeletor sitting on his throne.
