80s MOTU keychain question
Hi there y'all,
I have a vintage MOTU merchandise question that's been haunting... well, bugging me for nearly three decades. Nearly.
I vividly remember buying a MOTU keychain from some kid at a fancy fair/flea market at school in the mid to late 80's.
If I remember correctly it was shaped like He-Man's shield. Maybe with crossed axes in front of it or some key art depicting He-Man himself...
I'm sorry my description is pretty vague but it has been like thirty years. Well, almost.
Anyway, I was so thrilled I found the keychain before some other kid did that I kept it hidden in a firlmy clenched fist in my pocket. I thought that keychain was I wanted it to be that one keychain you keep using for the rest of your life.
Surely enough, I lost it a few moments later.
As soon as I noticed it was no longer in my pocket I desperately started looking for it later but -since festive days at school were pretty much the only days we were allowed to play anywhere on the school grounds- me and my buddies had been jumping and rolling all over everywhere. So I never found it back.
Does anyone know what keychain I once (briefly) possessed? Maybe someone has one in his collection or has seen a picture. I recent years I've tried several times to find a picture of it on the internet but without luck.
Anyway, if anyone has some info about it I'd love to hear it. Maybe one day I'll be able to find one just like it...
In the meantime I'll have to keep using my Batman keychain.
