    Embarrassing MOTU-Related Secret???

    If you have any, name one embarassing MOTU-related secret.

    It could be...

    - you convinced your wife to dress up as She-Ra

    - you named your housecat Battle Cat

    - you robbed a convenience store wearing a Skeletor mask

    - you are currently wearing He-Man Underoos

    - you have a Mer-Man tattoo on your back

    ...If the secret leans towards the "adult" side, try and be subtle, please. I don't want this thread moved over to The Tar Swamp.


    For me, it's that I've yet to outgrow my childhood wish for an Orko plush. If Mattel released one for the MOTUC line, I'd snap it up in a second. Since I'm not married or have any kids yet, I really wouldn't have an excuse if someone saw it at my house.

    No secret really, but the two kittens my fiancee and I have tearing up our apartment are named Panthor and Cringer.

    I think I could probably get her to dress up as She-Ra, though...

    Oh, and almost every fifteenth of any month (save those where my sub takes care fo everything I want), I invent a new lie to take a long, early lunch... I usually try to make it work with that month's release. For instance, I had to go to the optometrist when tri-Klops came out...
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Not a secret, and certainly not embarassing (as I am proud of my love for MOTU), but I have a cat named Panthor, and am about to get a tattoo of the original power swords.

    Just thought of another one. When the 200x line was in full swing, I bought a set of MOTU sheets and a comforter and actually put them on my bed to sleep in.

    When i get the finances i am getting a tattoo on my back of two totem poles. The faces on the poles will be my favorite Masters and Villains from MOTU and on the tops ot the totem poles are Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain/Frightzone. He-Man and She-Ra along with Battle Cat and SwiftWind will be in front of Castle Grayskull and Skeletor , Panthor, Evil-Lyn and King Hsss will be in front of Snake Mountain and Hordak and Shadow Weaver will be in front of the Frightzone.

    Will this be your first tattoo? It sounds like it will be a big piece.

    There was a high school near my house in Orlando that had this nifty brick wall along the sidewalks. I decided this was the perfect wall from which to take pictures of Webstor in action, so I walked down the street one afternoon to take some pics. Trouble is, a high school swim meet was occurring that afternoon, and I was quickly chased away by the PTA/campus security. I felt like a pervert, roaming around the school with my camera lol.

    It's a shame that Stinkor will probably be a sub figure......otherwise your story on that day could be interesting.

    I seriously considered getting red coral bumps implanted inder my skinn on my bald head so I would look more like Beast Man.

    I'm already hairy and strong as an ape, so I just needed a few tweeks.

    But wouldn't you have to be sunburned all the time to complete the "look"? Or get one of those awful spray-on orange tans? I heard of suffering for your art but ouch!

    It's not really an embarrassing secret for me, but when my wife and I went to the 2006 SDCC, I picked up the Best of She-Ra DVD from the BCI/Tower booth, which you got a free t-shirt with the purchase. My wife wanted to get the baby doll pink shirt with She-Ra and Swift Wind, which was okay with me! A couple of times she's worn it for me in private. It looks good on her. And that's all I need to say.

    I still use my 200X pillowcase every night, along with a Superman one. I will be getting a Battle Cat tattoo as soon as I can afford it.

    Um...I guess my only one would be that I buy these toys to play with. Like, seriously...setting up battles, thinking up storylines, making battle sounds, the whole bit.

    Well, I buy MotU action figures every month... Not really embarassing, whenever I get visitors I proudly take them to see my collection... and I ship my toys to my parents' house 'cause there's always someone home... I guess my father thinks his 33 year old son is still a child in some aspects

    Oh yeah, and I have a cat named Teela

    You could do that but make sure you don't use an acryllic or latex paint as these will close the pores on your skin and you'll asphixiate yourself to death. But I guess you could be doing a Panthor imitation then. After your body starts turning purple/blue that is...

    But seriously I don't have any embarrasing stories. But if I start blabbing that I collect He-Man action figures then I will. But I don't see that happening any time soon.

    My ex and I had a cat named Cringer, but he got him in the "seperation." This really isn't embarassing to me though.

    MOTU tattoos are extremely cool and I will be getting one...so nothing embarrasing about that either.
