    How many 8-backs do you have?

    I just wanted to know how many 8-backs do you fellow collectors and fans have and if you are planning to get more.

    I have only one 8-back, Stratos. I am planning to get all 8, if money allows

    I had one (Skeletor), but the bubble fell off, so now he is loose. My He-Man has "original" on it, which some people don't care for, but it is beautiful, so I don't think I'll ever replace it. I guess I don't really care about the card back too much, I just like them to be ultra clear and really mint looking, and finding an 8-back like that just isn't worth the trouble to me.

    If I found a pretty one that wasn't too much, and I didn't already have the figure on a nice card (which leaves Beastman and Mer-Man, aka the cool ones), I would def try and get it, but not over extend myself. I do like the "new" on cards though, but even that's not too big of an issue with me. Maybe if I have all of them and there is nothing left to get save card types, then I'll start that, but when I can get two or three moc figs for the price of one in the same condition, but w/ a different back, I'll go for the many. I still have just under half the line to get still though, so this is probably different for collectors who pursue it just a little more than I do.

    Congrats on the Stratos, And good luck w/ the rest!

    cheers

    Those weren't really considered 8 Backs, the 8 Backs we were talking about are the original 8 figures released with 8 figures on the back of the card from 1981/82.

    I received a couple of days ago my first Faker 8 back, in this case with King of Castle Grayskull Mini Comic. Not in the best condition but worthwhile because of its rarity.

    Asher, it is a resealed one at my eye because the baggie on the feet is missing + I see the corner of the mini comic damaged inside.
    Check the one of rougewelder from this same page, you will see what I mean.
    I hope you did not paid a lot for it.

    Toky I bought this figure from the org member Kupra99. The baggie issue was discussed at Grayskull Museum forum and not all the members agreed that it must be present in the figure, specially in first issues. Of course I asked the seller and he answered that to his knowledge the figure was sealed although the blister has becomed a little detached from the cardboard.

    You really think is resealed?

    Probably Kupra99 did not know this fact but yes I am affirmative.

    I know that some earlier 8_back did not come with baggies inside and you are totally right about that, but Faker is not one of these earlier figures, he was introduced in the line at the end of the 8_back cards reissues as you know.
    I seen a lot of Faker 8_back and, trust me, allways coming with a baggie inside.

    Can I have a closed picture on the Mattel logo please?
    At the right side of the bubble, I can see a little tear also, and it can be made only this way by opening the bubble.
    I opened a lot of mocs by the past and I am sure of what I am saying.
