hey everyone! i've never posted in this thread before, (mostly because all the vintage stuff i have is from my childhood, so i haven't really "scored" any recently... though, i guess things like the drinkmaster, ride-on battlecat, etc would count...?) anyway, i'm so excited right now and had to post, as i've just added a long-sought-after element to my collection! i've really wanted the laser lights since i found out about them. growing up in the US, i never knew they or the giants existed until the internet. lol. anyway, i wasn't ever too sure about the giants, but REALLY wanted the laser lights. well, recently my awesome wife let me splurge (in addition to already letting me go to power-con this month!), and i got all 4!!! the laser lights are everything i'd hoped for... awesome! and, i must say, the giants seem ALOT cooler in person than i ever expected from online photos. loving them all. and i knew the org would be the best place to share, with folks who'd "get it."
Congratz on your score, Kevin. Thanks for sharing the pics. I love the light up effects.

well, my grandma died monday afternoon, reason im bringin it up is, because she saved my original masters toys from my childhood i still have them, and when she gave them back to me after atleast 18 years, it resparked my first love in the toy world, motu. since she gave those figures back to me, ive been collecting and really enjoying this stuff we all love, thanks grandma for giving me a great childhood, and for always being a great grandmother. man she also got me nearly the entier super powers collection one christmas. and she always was on the look out for he-man toys. i dont know of this was the right place to post this, but what ever. i thought it was appropriate being this is a collectors thread, and we share the cool stuff we find. and again thanks grandma!
Mostly as a result of me collecting the classics line I ended up starting to buy vintage motu figures off ebay for the first time.
The first one I started with was Grizzlor because I had ordered the classics one but I never owned the original (for some reason Mosquitor was the only Horde figure I got as a child). I was concern about the actual condition of the fur not to mention "history" (what kind of stuff might have been in the fur or STILL in the fur). Thankfully I was able to find a MOC Grizzlor for a surprisingly affordable price. The only problem I have now is that I've now gotten quite used to this figure in package and don't know if I'll take him out or not.
The second figure is one that I got last week and was once again motivated by a classics figure I ordered but never owned the original of. This figure was Leech. I didn't try to get him MOC since there obviously wasn't that "fur issue" that I had with Grizzlor. However I ended up getting the figure and comic from separate sellers to save money.
I can't wait for my classics Leech to come in the mail so I can compare them.

I unfortunately don't own a scanner to show this, but I recently scored a MIB super-clean Frigjht Zone from eBay. The box itself is in so-so shape, but the toy came untouched and unassembled inside. This thing looked brand spankin'-new. No dust, no discoloration, none of it. I assembled it (w/o "adult supervision") and am looking for a place to proudly display it.
Read my book: True Confessions of a Fanboy www.truefanboy.com
great score on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/180728461889...84.m1439.l2649
Now, I felt I got a good deal on everything, but was hoping for more from what I couldn't see in the pictures. My surprise when I get every part for eternia BUT the windshield. Snake mountain was complete, and grayskull was only missing one card board cut out. Fright zone was perfect, no breaks in the tree. I wish I could go back in time through and tell him not to try and break apart the tracks, he for some reason decided to separate all the tracks and broke each of them.
I also had a score this summer that had all the final series figures in it, and it said includes some weapons. Well, every weapon was there!
