Welcome Becca! - Do yourself a favour and get Aves Studio 2 Part Epoxie Sculpt - its the best/easiest sculpting medium on the market. Water-Based. It works just like blu-tac or putty and you get about 2-3 hours work time which is plenty really. Then it sets rock hard just at room temperature - from there you can sand it and paint it or cast moldes etc if you want. Its not cheap but alot goes along way.
I get it from Barnes usually, but keep it in the fridge and let it soften a little before you combine the 2 parts then put em back in the fridge when ur done to prolong the life of the putty ... happy sculpting
that sounds good. i will keep an eye out for it.
Hey all - new member from Sydney here.
I am also a new-comer to MotU Classics. Got He Man and Skeletor at the Cyber Monday sale... and since then have acquired:
Teela, Man At Arms, Goddess, Adam and Orko, Stratos, Zodac, Beast Man, Mer Man, Trap Jaw, Tri Klops, Evil Lyn, Faker, oh and Battle Cat.
I sort of went a bit nuts there... but I did find a guy on ebay whose prices were ok, but shipping was $25 from the US no matter how many you bought so got most from him loose.
I also have She Ra Adora and Hordak in the post from local sellers.
I got the first couple and just loved them. It was Xmas holidays and I had some spare cash so thought - what the hey? Only HAd He Man a Teela as a kid, so it's fulfilled a 3 decade dream pretty much.
It is great to see such an increase in Aussie collectors on the board. Now some of you older guys need to start posting again. I'm looking at you Oz-Scott, Gimporama and Lorde Trooper
Still no god damn Vikor. I am thinking he has gone the way of reissue He-Man from way back. I am not going to let this one go now because I will be out $150
I thought i was bad in how quickly i was buying these up in a short time. glad i'm not alone
This last fornight i got
Orko & Adam
hoping to grab Battle Cat and maybe Trap Jaw tonight
Also through another guy who shops at my comic store i scored 200X complete DVD for $20. pretty happy with that. figured for a new fan this is a good place to get started.
Bring on the Aussie collectors!!
My slow option Guards & Stands just arrived!! Woohoo!
The Guards are sweet as - havent opened em yet but they look pretty kool - yeah the packaging is smaller than I expected too! looks neat though, can already imagine the Hordak Grizzlor 2 Pack in that packaging would be nice- or a He-Man & Skelly 2 pack even better.
Just been looking at the character biographies. I never knew until now about the whole Keldor/Skeletor thing. Was this in the original series?? or was i just too gaga at four to know what necromancy is?
Next question: does anyone know how to fix the spring that holds the top and bottom halves of figures together??
third question: how much is too much to pay for a vintage figure with no accessories?
Thanks for the welcome guys.
I picked up the 200X complete series from Amazon for $7.99! I am halfway through and loving it. Also rediscovered my couple of old mini-comics. Fogrot about Teela and the Sorceress lookng the same! Haven't read them in years.
Also - my slow shipping stand arrived today too. Must be the day for it!
Had a nice masters day today. Scored trap jaw and teela. But dew to swaping comic stores ( like breaking up with girlfriend) I couldn't grab battle cat just yet but had it put aside. Also managed to procur some palace gaurds and wun dar for future purchase off my dealer.
This has been one of the shitest weeks of my life but loving retail therpay of masters
My snail mail stands arrived today too! still no sign of my 3 Guards sets yet! (well two are mine, 1 is 'Power of threes'.)

My first order of Palace Guards and stands arrived today, another order will be here soon, but still no Vikor
If I haven't got him by next week then I will have to start the process of getting a replacement from matty. I hope it is not too painful.
My biggest concern now is this is not the best way to start the 2011 sub. I now fear I am going to have no end of troubles with it this year
i still have a few MOC MOTUC for sale.
Battle Armor He-man - 20.00 (pending)
+ postage. All MOC with Mailers. Pm if interested.
I know how hard it can be to be new to a line and new to a forum. I will do what I can to answer your questions but first let me give you a piece of advice; Use this thread to ask your questions. The main board can be a snake pit sometimes and it can really be off putting. We like to help each other as much as possible so don't be afraid to ask anything here.
Answer 2:Send a PM to clawguy3, he is pretty cluey when it comes to customs and such so he might be able to help you out.
Answer 3:I am not a vintage collector but I tend to agree with kinggreyskull2011, don't spend over $10 unless it is a vintage Megator or Tytus
Just read about the meet up - definitely in if it happens in / around Melb
I'm pretty keen on flying up to Syd for the Supernova Meet as well.
Also, if anyone's attending Armageddon 2011 let me know. I'd love to meet up there too.
Baby Skeletor (just kidding)
Hey guys and girls, firstly welcome to all of the newbies, great to see newcomers to this thread, weve had a virus on our computer so im using the wifes laptop but dont use it very often as i like the computer and the old mouse better but it fee;s like i havent been here for a while.
Got Vikor and the palace guards last week, Aj your right i was very surprised with the size of the box. Also i thought it was odd that with the 2 guards that i got neither had stickers on the sides of the packaging. For a MOC collector id rather stickers on the sides, i was able to open up the sides and touch the figures and re-seal the box, mind you i only done this on my loose set and not my MOC set.
Once again welcome to all of the newcomers to this thread and who knows you may even want to attend our first ever annual meet-up.
Evil Army of the Horde!!
I was the only 'old timer' in here for a while!
Yeah The size of the guards box really threw me, I think I was expecting something comparative to Mo-larrs box!
With the Arrival of Vikor and now the Guards I had no room in my display so today I bit the bullet and pulled it apart to re-arrange. I had bought some acrylic Risers and they have worked awesomely, also fit in the sideshow diorama I got a few weeks ago. It took me about two hours (admittedly I got admiring the figs all over again, and that added time!lol.)
Im still not 100% happy with it, but for now it will hafta do (I dont like where the guards are, I may swap them with Buzzy and Carnivus) I Theres a lot more room now, I could even bring Marzo back from storage.
But Im dreading the Shadow beast arriving...cos theres not enough room for another Gygor scale figure! dang it!
