    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

    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.

    Welcome retcon

    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

    Its a great place to get started, I was never a fan of Filmation, but I loved the 200X cartoon! It made me interested in the characters all over again!

    enjoy!

    Welcome Retcon,

    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?

    Third question:
    It all depends on the rarity of the figure I guess, but I personally wouldn't go over $10 AUD if it's incomplete

    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 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.

    third question: how much is too much to pay for a vintage figure with no accessories?
    Answer 1:The name Keldor was originally mentioned in the vintage mini comic; The Search for Keldor. It was alluded to that Skeletor knew Keldor but it was never actually stated they were one in the same. Fast forward to 2002 and the MYP cartoon. Keldor was shown to be attacking Randor in the first episode; The Beginning. During the episode Keldor was mortally wounded by a vial of acid. Keldor sought out Hordak to save his life but was turned into Skeletor.

    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

    Sorry buddy, as Staff of Ka said, I didn't answer because I didn't know. I don't even remember the vintage commercials

    I am glad you said it was from your dealer because these things are like drugs. The way you are going you will be caught up in no time. Be sure to check often because I know Skelehorde and DaBigfella are always selling figures.

    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!!

    great to see ya buddy, been a while!

    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!
