My first two cels arrived today.

is that it only a hand full of cels ? come on people where are your great cels ?
Hi, all. Very long-time lurker, first-time poster.
Some very nice animation cels you folks have. Always cool and interesting to see what cels have survived and are out there.
I myself collect He-Man and She-Ra cels as well. You can see them (and cels from other toons) at my cel gallery:
It's funny that James spoke of cels from deleted sequences because I have a couple of He-Man and She-Ra cels that appear to be from deleted sequences:
Funnily, I wasn't aware that the two cels were from deleted sequences when I bought them. I didn't realise they were from deleted sequences until I skimmed through their corresponding episodes after receiving the cels.
Maybe James can confirm these, if there is any mentioning in the scripts about sequences, that are not in final episode.
With He-Man cel, the mark does make note of MU121 which is "Magic Falls", but that pose is not found in the episode. Very interesting.
I just checked out your gallery - GREAT collection - Yeah, that Man-At-Arms clapping cel you have...deleted scene - And the cel of He-Man with both his arms to the side that you're unsure of, that's from "City Beneath the Sea"...
It's odd, because in the last two weeks I've managed to purchase two deleted sequences...both featuring He-Man...
Also, I should mention that sometimes a sequence is trimmed for time - I have a cel from "Sweet Bee's Home" that doesn't appear in the episode, even though the shot is in place - It appears that they decided it was one frame too many...and I have that frame!

Would you happen to know which episode this cel of Cringer comes from? Like the aeformentioned He-Man cel, there's no MU markings on the Cringer cel, and I don't recall seeing the cel anywhere in the series.

I'd like to get around to posting pics of my small cel collection, but the ones I see in here put mine to shame.
Guys your pieces are amazing! Congrats!
Those model sheet cels I mentioned yesterday, arrived a moment ago.

OMG Eurocoin those must be some of the rarest Filmation model sheets ever! In fact I'm surprised Bustatoons doesn't have em' ! Thank you so much for sharing them, that Starchild one will be very helpful for my, as of now on hold, fan-comic story!
Visit my art page at: http://theblock.deviantart.com/ , if you like my work and have an account there to, feel free to fave or watch me, I could use the street cred !
My new chant: Lets go NA MARA, spike-flail pon-y-tail
Can anyone recommend any reputable/reliable online stores where one can buy portfolios to store the cels in?
I need to get some portfolios to properly store my cels in.
so the demand for them might be low.
I'd feel the model-sheet of Teela Na or Kuduk Ungol would be more rare. (and wanted)
Would the scarseness of certain character model-sheet make it more rare than some other? rarity by demand and supplies? I dunno.
Do you have an inclin, James, as to what character model-sheets are among the rarest?
If you want to just use poly bags and boards (like comic books) Bagsunlimited.com has the best selection. Lobby card bags/boards are the right size, and they have archival foam board backings that work well for cels.

Back in the nineties model sheets were SO hard to come by - Now that are popping up more and more - And since they weren't one-offs, they're readily available...if you can find them...
Got me a cel with laserbackground.
From one of my favourite episodes "Teela's Quest" the monster Bakull with Teela. Shame that I didn't ask the buyer more details about this.
Came today and found out that it's from the batch by Sunday Funnies, who made laserbackgrounds with more than mere backgrounds in them. lol.
So the only cel I got, was of Bakull. And he looks great.
But the Powersword and Teela are printed as part of the laserbackground, which definitely came as a suprise.
Someone pointed me to another store where I can purchase Itoya portfolios, but the shipping costs were at rip-off prices so I didn't order the portfolios from them. I've looked for Itoya portfolios on other art stores, but they were either too expensive or shipping was killer on the wallet.

Currently my most beloved cel in collection.
