    Bought as much as I could and what I liked. most of the variants I only ended up getting because I needed a fix, but I still don't have somethings. to me the designs of 2002 line are THE definitive versions, I LOVE the unique sculpts, the updates I have all the statues, all the stactions, most of the minibusts. the problems that existed were essentially weeded out in the staction line, just goes to show that whent he horsemen are given free reign to work and Mattel doesn't butt in, wonderful things happen. when Mattel gets their big ideas and interfere with the horsemen (rather than support them) things go awry.

    me and a friend(booger was his name) raided walmart everyday and bought every figure possible. there was alot we didnt get, but i still buy whatever 200x i can find. grayskull battlestation was very hard to get then, so glad i got one, its actaully my stepkids, but i payed for it and he is as passionate as i am , we bought it for him, but i enjoyed just as much.i also still watch the show. and im also one that thought the toon looked better than the figures, but the figures are cool, but to me a whole other version of motu!

    I had all the characters, but sold most of them when I saw how good the stactions looked in comparison. I don't have many left, but I like the ones I have, they are: He-Man, Snake Armor He-Man, Battle Sound He-Man, Man At Arms, Hordak (staction), Skeletor, Battle Sound Skeletor, Teela and Evil Lyn.

    I bought almost every figure I could find at Wal-Mart - and later the Snakemen at Aldi throughout 2001, 2002 and 2003. I got a few doubles - both silver and gold "battle-sound" He-Man - both the + and the * versions of He-Man - the cats, and a few vehicles.

    The internet, a few from ToysRUs (a castle + 4 figure set and a couple Slime Pits) but a majority of the harder to find ones from ebay helped me gather the collection I currently have.

    Had I actually been able to find Roboto, Two-Bad, Evil-Lyn, Teela and a few others on shelves I would not have had to get them from ebay. The last memory I have of this series at Wal-Mart was a wall full of Jungle Attack He-Man and 3 Ram-Man figures. Aldi was nice as I was able to get all but King Hiss and Kobra Khan from the actual store (those were 2 of my later ebay additions).

    I bought 2 of everything! I ended up selling off my carded figures for the sake of room, but still have all of my loose ones and kept boxed vehicles and exclusives. All I am missing are a couple of the international figure repaints like Blood Skeletor.

    I'll never forget how stoked I was when I saw the 200X figs in Toyfare and knew MOTU was coming back. Looking at them on the shelf next to MOTUC and stactions I am a little critical of the paint apps and a few of the designs, but it is a great line and I will never forget how much fun it was having MOTU back in stores.

    I will say I know it was a nightmare to collect for most people. I was fortunately the manager of the Toy department at Wal Mart during that time, so I was able to order tons of stuff and make sure I got what I needed and called up all the other local MOTU heads to help them too. But yeah, terrible case ratios and even more so the deluxe figures. I don't know if people realize how detrimental the terrible deluxe figures were on the way retailers were perceiving things.

    I've got at least two (up to 8) of every figure, variant, vehicle, statue, staction, mini-bust, etc except for the top three chases. I don't have any of them.

    Oh, and only one SDCC He-Man.

    I bought every single character, but no repaints or variants except for the fire armor Skeletor, and the Battle Sound He-Man and Skeletor. So no snake redeco's either. I also didn't get any of the exclusives at all, and I stopped with the Snakemen line. I always wanted the Snake Men, Fisto and Zodak, but they where pretty expensive on the secondary market (my only means at that time to buy them...) when they where just released. because they where rare, low production and/or highly sought after at the time. I got most of the vehicles and playsets as well.

    Now I don't really care for them anymore and thus I sold almost my entire 200X collection. It has mostly to do with the fact that I really like articulation a lot which they barely have and I have limited space to display so I must choose and be really picky since I like so many other toylines as well. The articulation is why I love MOTUC so much! I kept only a few 200X figures that I liked the most; Buzz-Off, Teela, Evil-Lyn and Orko. I might want a Whiplash again, he was pretty cool as well!

    I also have the He-Man 200X staction.
    I still want to get a Clawful staction someday.

    No, because I wasn't ever even aware there was a 200x line.
    Of course I would have collected had I known...stands to reason.

    I bought every character available, but didn't bother with the pointless repaints or variants (bar a few, Battle Sound He-Man & Skeletor; Ice Armor He-Man and Flame Armor Skeletor, etc.). I bought the last few that I couldn't find in stores, on ebay.

    I still have them all; but even at the time I wasn't overwhelmed with them. I mean, I like them 'cos they're MOTU, but I just didn't like most of the design styles, with warped scales, tiny heads, etc.

    Now I have bought all the 200X line. This is the line I prefer than 80's or Motuc.
    For me the best was the 4Horseman mini-statue.
    And now I buy Motuc figure to complete my 200X collection with Scareglow, OpptiKK, Count Marzo... for example!

    And sometimes I bought 200X again to make customs.

    I bought as many as I could find at the time. Still some that I don't have (Evil Lyn, Roboto, King Hiss), but had I known my son would like He-Man so much, I would have picked up a couple more Smash Blades when they were so plentiful.

    How could you call yourself a MOTU fan and not buy any of the MYP/FH/200X toys? It makes no sense to me.
    I like Batman and have almost every incarnation of those characters in figure form.
    What the 200X line perhaps fell down in was the vehicles and accessories department. Grayskull could have been tricked-out more, I'm talking huge fangs, more of a 3D sculpt to the skull.
    Here in Scotland the "dollar store" equivalent poundtstretcher was still stocking job-lot bought 200X. They are just cool, cool rethinks of MOTU!

    I never bought them for myself. I did buy a bunch of them for my nephew for about 2 years for Birthdays and Christmas. I thought they were really cool looking but at the time I had no interest in collecting He-Man. I just can't break down and collect them. I am a vintage only kinda guy.

    I was lucky enough to have a wife that picked up any new figures she saw for me. I've got most of the 200X collection minus the variants.

    They're easily some of my favorite He-man collectibles.

    Hell yeah I bought them. In 2002 I didn't even collect toys, until one day I walked in a store and was floored when I saw He-man, Skeletor, Man-at-arms, and Beast Man. I couldn't help myself, I had to get them. Now, years later, MOTU is like a crack addiction I just can't quit. The classics line is cool, but doesn't compare to the sculpture and uniqueness of each character in 200X.

    Oddly enough, i wasn't interested in 200X figures in the beginning but slowly they started to appeal to me and right now i'm really close to completing a set (not including repaints or variants). The anime look is quite something and the centrepiece of my collection (not including my sentimental favourite Roboto) has to be Keldor.

    I picked the first option, even though I don't or didn't hate the toy line or the toys, it's just the fact that they were sold during the time when I never ever visited any toy isles. And if I had visited I would have not bought them, because they looked so different compared to vintage figures.

    I didn't even know of the toy line or the cartoon until 2005.
    I searched many toy stores & gone to comic conventions looking for any figure I could buy. I didn't like all the variants from the line but that is what was left over in stores. I then had to buy them from E-Bay. I finish collection all the 200x figures in 2008.

    I was in college during this series, and ought to have focused more on collecting the figures. I only got the base He-Man back then, and have just recently started collecting the rest. Slowly, but surely. I shall hope to get He-Man and Skeletor from the Classics series over at MattyCollector.com -- any idea of when those will be released? (Or are they going to be re-released?)

    I officially completed my 200x collection with the purchase of Webstor on Ebay in 2009. I was luck to get him for 60 something dollars. normally he went for 80-90 dollars.
