I can say for a FACT that the bottom has now completely dropped out the market...
Back in the late mid-to-late nineties animation cels were SO hard to come by - I once parted with about $275 just for a random cel of Whiplash walking...simply walking... - The same cel now you could pick up for about $10 - Ouch!
I was fortunate enough to visit the warehouse in Los Angeles where all the Filmation cels were stored in 2001 and 2005, and from those two visits I managed to pick up all the cels I wanted!
Wow! ...nobody told me that there is a warehouse with all the great animation stuff from filmnation! ...too bad... so that's the reason why all the good cels are gone!
btw i would like to see a picture of this warehouse from inside ^^, with all the nice cels. I was wondering if any member of this forum is in possession of some cels from the intro, where adam is talking and then transforms into he-man! I searched for a long time for the original background of grayskull where adam transforms into he-man, but no one out there could help me. I would pay 1000+ USD for it...
I'll see if I can dig out the ol' photos from 2001...
Here's a quick photo I just took...

AnnaMot- that Fright Zone cel is beautiful! Do you have an online gallery of photos of your cels? I'd love to see your collection!
Most-wanted MOTUC: Madame Razz and Broom - Filmation Kowl - Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita
OK. Here are some cels from my collection. I love secondary characters so you will find here some villans and heroes from both MOTU and POP episodes.
I like the young Adam cels. They are from the episode "Battle Cat":
of Castle Grayskull
Hi! me again! It's my hobby to draw he-man wallpapers, so here is my latest picture in 1920 x 1200 px. I hope you enjoy it!

I've uploaded some more model sheets to my album. Added Kuduk Ungol - The Sorceress' predecessor, and also some vehicles.

Neogoehunter you did me cry! You're so lucky guy!
Thanks sooooooooooooo much for share!
James, do you remember that I told you about that cel of He-Man transformation?! You answered isn't were from the trasnformation sequence but a publicity cel
I know what publicity cel you was meant, that one appeared on UK's vhs covers...he has a different head, I knew...
One thing to always be on the lookout for is animation cels from DELETED SCENES...
I have quite a few cels that are from scenes left on the cutting room floor - They're easy to spot; you just have to know the series inside out!
I posted these two on my Blog recently...
This second one is not a cel; it is line art from a deleted scene that I colored...but you get the idea...
My first two cels arrived today.
