    Nice! That's the first '1st Edition' Man-At-Arms that I've seen MOC. Congrats! I like the extra detail that some of the first releases had (Man-At-Arms red dots and Skeletor purple trunks/orange face paint).

    Just pure AWESOME Suckator, you get that Mer-Man from Final Frontier? You don't see to many He-Man 8-Backs "without warranty" either. Very impressive.

    Thanks! You're right, this was from FFT. I've been looking to update my Mer-man 8-back to one with an original mini comic for awhile!

    I'm looking at several man-at-arms 8-backs out there. Is there any pattern to whether or not he comes with his leg and arm armor attached? Is one version rarer? I have seen him:

    1. with armor attached with warranty and without free and no red dots.
    2. with armor attached with warranty and with free and red dots.
    3. with armor attached without warranty and with free and red dots.
    4. without armor attached with warranty and without free and no red dots.

    hmm. so maybe there is no rhyme or reason!

    I have seen all 3 editions of the 8-Back Man-At-Arms with the armor applied and all 3 had red dots as well. So I guess there is no way to know why some do and some don't. I have had 3 different Man-At-Arms 8-Backs (still have 2) and here is the breakdown:
    1st edition (No Warranty/No SKU #'s) with armor and Red Dots and "FREE"
    3rd edition (with warranty) with armor/Red Dots (original 4 mini comic and FREE)
    3rd edition (with Warranty) without armor and without Red Dots
    I have also seen:
    2nd edition (No warranty) with armor and with red dots and without FREE.

    Very odd and I guess there is no pattern. Never paid attention to the armor issue until you brought it up though.

    Latest 8-Back score. 8-back Skeletor with Warrantly from one of our own, Pete LeRose. Obviously not in mint shape but I got a great deal on this MOC.

    I just found a panthor at a flea market. It is still in the box, but the box is beat up. It has a the 8 back on it.
    Is this a 81/82 panthor ? would it be a 8 back also?

    I paid $40 was that a good price?

    Panthor is very mint and looks better that a commemorative panthor that I own .

    i'm pretty sure you are mistaken.. well, no panthor in the US were 81, just 82 and after.

    battle cat is 81 with 8 back.

    I would never do such a thing !!!???? i dont use ebay .i would just do that here on the org. besides theyre all kinda obvious i used 3m tape and you can see the lines where the tape ends .they are for me. not for sale , if i sold them as real i would rough them up a bit first duh . and im sure i wouldnt be the first to make a $1000 on recards, it happens all the time , most of the figures were from 8 back cards ,i still have 3 of the cards pretty rough condition , but im satisfied with these they look better than commemorative figures . and who is WE anyways???? the motu police ? am i not part of WE? or do i have to own real 8 backs , JUST KIDDING I DONT CARE !!!!! but i wish someone would make repro boxes so i can get the most out of my vehicles and playsets JUST KIDDING no seriously JUST KIDDING DONT TELL ANYONE
