My score is much less tangible, but full of sentimental value.
I finally found a picture of the very first MOTU toys I had as a kid. From 1988, all figures by Leo Mattel (India).
Wow! Looks awesome!but the box is a reproduction by andrea the cat. It is awesome and you cannot tell without a very close examination and side by side comparisons that it is a repro!!
I didn't realize until I grew up that India got MOTU a few years later than everyone out here in the west did, but I might've missed it if it had been any sooner, so it all worked out.
thats is super cool! wow all those are leo's, you know, alot of us still have our motu toys from childhood, are you one of us, because leo's are hard to come by, and you have quite a few of them in that pic, it would be awsome if you still did! nice post, definalty top ten best ever!
So far, the only item I have found from stuff I had as a kid is this sticker I posted about earlier in this thread.
I was very lucky to get a nice grayskull with most parts, but it was missing the turret gun. I felt like it was worth shelling out the $10 for it and just got it. I think my grayskull might actually be complete now.
Awesome photos, SuperHeman really nice to see this childhood collection of leo toys! Thanks for sharing.

My feedback ,cool people I've dealt with
A couple of the original MOTU cartoon DVD's on Toys R' Us for $5 bucks each one.
I'm Skeletor, master of evil! All of you should show respect for the awful one.
I am Grizzlor #1 fan!
I won a pretty nice Battle Armor He-Man on ebay a few weeks ago.
I also finally decided to have my Bravestarr MIB graded. I know Bravestarr is not MOTU related, but still pretty cool.
My Hordak had the ugly manilla head and was missing his cape. I just got him a cape and a white head. He looks much better.
Interestingly, the 2 pairs of armor I have are not the same; one armor has red slots on the sides, the other does not have them.
I wonder when in the 1980s the U.K. got MOTU, and whether it was around when the U.S. did. The only She-Ra I got back then was The Secret of the Sword, and that too because an uncle brought over a VHS from England in -- and this is my best guess -- '88/'89. I also got Thunder Punch He-Man from there, as well as the yellow He-Man sword that had a button and lights!
I know from the forums that New Adventures (NA) made it to India and Leo released some NA figures as well, but it never made much of an impact (I can assure you no one in my school knew of it -- and perhaps it was a good thing we didn't), I didn't even know of something called 'New Adventures' until I found the .org!
I got a huge lot of stuff from my local comic/ collectible shop. A castle Grayskull missing only the pistol, flag sticker, and cardboard inserts and about 10 loose complete figures for a resonable price.

"We have a Ram-Man"
I recently got this Skeletor. Didn't realize it was an 8-back when I purchased it, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out. I just started collecting MOTU figures again because all mine from when I was young are very played with. I tried to find out more information on it but just got more confused with all the different types of 8-backs. Does anyone have information they could share with me? I think it is German/Italian?
Garage sale find!
nice garage sale!
They were 10 each!
The only problem with them is that the UPC is removed from the backs. Some worse than others. Either way I couldn't pass them up!
