    Hey Ram-Man welcome to the boards.

    Hey have you guys checked out Casefresh as late. I note you can pre-order wave 2 and 3 of the stactions. Also if you pick up all three in a wave at once you pay only $120 as opposed to $135.

    French, German and Italian Sightings

    Hallo All,

    I recently was on holiday in Europe and kept an eye out for He-man. I dont know if any of you are interested but here goes.

    France - I could not find any traces of He-man any where in France, I dont even know if it was released there.

    Germany - I was only in Munich but i found a few vehicles / play sets but no figures. What i found was both of the Mecha cats ( 20 euro), Spit Bulls ( 30 euro ), Dragon Walkers ( both types 35 euro), Slime pits ( 20 euro ), Castle Grayskulls and a snake Armour Power Blade ( 35 euro ).

    Italy - In Rome i found red card figures but only heaps of MEKANECK and BUZZ-OFF and a couple of SY-KLONE and one badly damage Samurai Skeletor all for 11.40 euro. There was also Castle Grayskulls for 23 euro, Battle Stations and Slime pits for 20 euro each.

    In Florence i found 3 MEKANECKs for 15 euro each and that was all.

    So overall not too bad i thought, considering how long the line has been dead.

    The toys i did buy were a clear Fantasic Four Power Blast Invisible Woman ( which is meant to be chase? ) at Heathrow Airport a Frech copy of V for Vendetta Graphic Novel, a 'Crab with the Golden Claws' Tintin Mug and finally a Majorette Venom car.

    I watched it as well! The songs were pretty great! So many nods to the long time fans! The one thing that I was scratching my head about were the costumes! Some were just horrible!
    Can't wait till she brings the show back!

    Cool. Where/how have you seen it? The dvd must be doing the rounds. I loved the show, except for the opening and closing, they seemed a bit bland. 'In denial' was a bad/boring song choice, and I wish they swapped 'Locomotion' for 'Got to be certain' (I think we've heard 'loco' enough now).

    Back onto MoTU, I did something the other night that I wasn't sure I still had in me - I was looking at my figures and before I knew it a battle was underway (oh gawd, I feel like a geek for admitting that). I always wondered whether I had the ability to 'play' with my toys being whisker away from a 30yo, but now I know I do!!??

    Just wondering, who here (in oz) has the Roger Sweet book?

    I downloaded it throught eMule. I would like to see Hand on your Heart gone. That song seems overperformed to me...

    Not yet, though I haven't really been looking for it.

    You can't get it in stores here (it doesn't have a local distibutor or publisher or whatever). You can import it through local bookshops though (cost me $40AUD).

    It is a pretty badly written book - expect to be disappointed (and frustrated), but it is prolly worth getting. In between the authors ramblings over his personal life issues, he occasionally mentions he-man...

    Yeah, that's kinda what I expected. I read an interview with him in ToyFare and he came across as a huge whinger, so I didn't bother with it any further.
    It's a real shame...

    Y'know, thinking back over the book, am trying to recall if there is/was any cool information or whatever to make the purchase worthwhile, but I'm drawing a blank.

    I would still reccommend reading it if you get the chance, because there are bits and pieces here and there that give insight into the workings behind 'vintage' motu. Unfortunately, there is lots of whinging, and there are LOTS of non-MoTU ramblings. A pity really, because I can see potential in the book.

    Roger would have been better getting comeone who wasn't related to write the book, that way, they could have weeded out all the whinging, and repeated comments (and believe me, they are REPEATED), and maybe they could have corrected some of his mistakes.

    The funny thing, although he continually bags Mattel, all he has succeeded in doing is improving my opinion on them. (for example, he hated the idea of Prince Adam and Cringer and the whole transformation thing. Now, to me, that was one of THE coolest aspects of MoTU).

    Has anyone been watching the 80s episodes on Cartoon Network? (is that a dumb question?) I have, and I have to say I was disappointed in seeing Clawful the other night. He was a bit of a nothing - I MUCH prefer the MYP version. I am surprised ay how little airtime most of the secondary characters got on the 80s cartoon. Maybe there's more in season two. I haven't seen most of these episodes since I was a kid.

    I'm looking forwrad to She-Ra on October 31.

    He-Boy thanks for your post it was a good read. I'll keep an eye out for it in the book stores and ebay etc, etc.

    The original motu cartoon on CN is on at 1:00am for me I'm prepared to wait it out and buy the dvd's. However in saying that I'll be recording She-Ra.

    Has anyone noticed that before 80s MoTU starts on Cartoon Network, they have a "coming up next - He-Man" advert (or whatever those things are called) and they show the MYP He-Man, not Filmation???!!!

    The glow rings came with Trap Jaw and Tri-Klops.
    The Blue Webster gun came with some Webstors. Most had the orange gun, but a few came with blue...
    Without seeing a pic, I'm not sure about the others...

    Scott.

    PS - If you wanna sell one of those rings and the blue gun, I'll take 'em off your hands. Just name your price.
