MOC Beast Man.....on eBay for $44 Not too shabby.
Drove 3+ hours to the ToyMan toy show in St. Louis yesterday on a whim. Had my MOTU co-collector/best friend on the phone to look up prices and discuss purchases. We came away with -
Slime Pit MIB - Prety sharp (at least to me) so will be AFAing
Panthor MIB - I'd judge it about 5.0, box is terrific and plastic solid but yellow, remnants of many price tags
Spydor MIB - Great overall but a puncture wound on the front like another box dropped on it
Battle Bones MIB - Great overall but left flap is open, like the glue dried up or something
Grizzlor MOC - Maybe a C7, great bubble, so-so card, prob will not AFA but you never know
Two red, plastic MOTU figure carrying cases like I had as a kid - great shape, both with tray - dealer threw these in for cheap great art on them, holds 4 figures each - you probably all had these as kids
Overall very happy! One dealer had a yellow Whiplash and yellow Khan but would take no less than $150 for both. I passed. I can't stand yellow bubbles anyway and would only have wanted them as place holders in the growing collection.
I almost bought a MOC Silverhawks Mon-Star and MOC GIJoe Dial Tone. Decided not to but the desire is strong to pepper the MOTU collection with some old favorites from other 80s lines - Tron, Mon-Star, Moltar from Crystar, GIJoe Beachhead, Starriors Flashfist, M.A.S.K. Rhino, Centurions Jake Rockwell, etc. Gotta stick to MOTU for now!
Then bought a SWEET MOC Tung Lashor from Aeolus on eBay, not knowing it was his! D'oh!

THE VINTAGE-TO-CLASSICS COUNTDOWN IS COMPLETE!!!
Vlcan I've been thinking about picking up a few vintage MOC figures, but I have no idea what each are worth. Is there a buyer's guide somehwere?
Look what the Zoloworld fairy left on my doorstep! These cases are great!
Great looking collection AC!
My latest vintage haul netted me loose/complete:
Not many left for the collection!
Speaking of scores.....just bought a MOC Mer Man from same seller that I bought my $40 MOC beast man from for $51. So I got both of those 1982 MOC figures for less than $100. Usually they both go for over $100 apiece. I think I did well.
I like your commemorative figures. But let me tell you there's nothing like the real thing. Once you buy one you'll get hooked.
Before I saw Frankenweenie (wonderful movie btw), my mom and I went into the collectible store and they didn't have a lot of He-man stuff in stock. The only ones they had were Leech (which I already had) and two Kobra Khans. So I wanted to see the condition of the Kobra's to see which one was better. One was priced $8 and one was $12. They both looked fine to me. I took the $8 one. When I paying for my item, the lady working there said that the MOTU action figures have been selling a lot recently as this one guy the other day bought 6 for his son. I responded by saying probably because of the 30th Anniversary. She said that's probably what it is.
So today was a good day for me. I get a He-man action figure and I get to see a Tim Burton flick.
picked up a moc flying fist he man and buzz saw hordak..havent held these 2 moc since i was a kid so it brought back alot of memories.i can still remember when these were on the toys r us shelves

my want list: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=148549
Just recieved the "He-Man and the Power Sword" original mini comic (with extra pages) $21 shipped. To my suprise it was in dang near mint condition!! I don't care about condition, and just want complete books, but this was a nice suprise! I'm new (restistration wise, been trolling for years) to the org, and will have my extra minis up for trade with my want list soon.
Very nice Tacostand. I picked up 2 Mosquitors on UBG Mini comics MOC from a private collector in CT. Both are being sent off to AFA for grading. Also working with him on 20 AFA MOC's for series 4,5, & 6
German 'Anti-Eternia' audio play tape.
"She-Ra, Princess of Power was no more. That had been the price of freedom."
FINALLY... found an Eternia Gun Turret with Windshield for a reasonable price! That little windshield was the most elusive piece of the MOTU puzzle for me. Now, after 18 years (wow, I'm old ) I've finally completed my Eternia Playset.
i know you've been looking for that little thing for a long time, so i'm so happy to hear you finally have it! (though, i still will never understand what the specific allure for such a tiny little thing is, OR why people are willing to pay so much for it!) ((hope you didn't have to spend as much as i see folks paying))... though, i guess that's easy to say from the standpoint of someone who still has it from childhood. *shrug*
anyway, congrats man! yay for toys! lol.
Thanks kevin! And the whole gun with windshield was $36! Not too bad.
around 120 with more joe vechiles and the us sflag (NOT PICTURED)
