    He-man travels the World!

    Hi all, yes He-man has indeed travelled the world with me - and has been pictured many times along the way!

    In March my girlfriend and I started a 5 months trip round the world... and yes... He-man had to come too!

    He's been all over - from the River Ganges and the Taj Mahal in India to Budda's birthplace in Nepal to the Sydney Opera House! He's even met 1 or 2 celeb's along the way - just a few weeks ago he met the captain of the All Blacks (NZ) Rugby team and Dr. Karl Kennedy from the Australian soap Neighbours!

    We're not finished yet though... we're in Fiji at the monent and headed for San Diego and Comic-con in the next 2 weeks! So hopefully many more great pics to come!

    All the pics are on our website and the He-man page is: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...an%2Findex.htm

    Its been great getting him pictured at the many places we've been and I've been looking forward to sharing them. Please take a look at the pic's and let me know what you think!

    I'm a huge He-man fan and MOTUC collector. This will be my first visit to the US and my first comic-con - and I can't wait. I look forward to seeing some of you there, and at the He-man.org fan get together!

    (PS. I apologise if this is posted in the wrong place)

    Best. Post. This. Year. (And from a fellow Brit, too!!)


    Really cool shots. If there had been a few Cell Block H shots on the Neighbours one (Neighbours took over much of CBH's recording ground) it woulda probably made me pass out with joy.

    Fantastic stuff! By far the BEST thread in a long, LONGGGGG time! We have neighbours from Nepal...I wonder if they have ever eaten at 'Hemans' place??

    ....Is the Sunday Special there 'Roast Gooble'?!?

    There's another recent thread where it was proposed to send an MOTUC figure from country to country for fans to snap in various locations. Swift's thread shows the possibilities! =)

    Yeah that was mine (check my sig). This is what it was all about, except we weren't going with the figure

    Awesome stuff. Hopefully this will give more interest into my idea and not make it redundant

    Wow this is so cool - you look as if you had a really great time - and nice to share it with good ol' He-Man along the way.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday - and SDCC - I'm excited for you.

    Amazing pictures! It seems like you and He-man have been able to see and do so much. I would love to be able to take a trip around the world like this and experience so many unique sights and cultures. Enjoy the rest of the trip and especially Comic-Con.

    Extremely, extemely, extremely cool.

    I would love to go on such a trip with my wife... And maybe Skeletor's...!

    Excellent thread!
    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

    What a great trip!

    My favorites are the sky-diving and the mud bath. Those are priceless photos.

    I see He-man is a bit of a heavy drinker, with the mcewans pin in his back LOL. He drinks the same as me then. Good choice

    I didn't fancy a sky dive too much... but having He-man jump from 13000 ft was just too good to miss!

    This shop wasn't in the twin towers... it was in a shopping centre near the golden triangle... and I recall there being a water fountain outside and when you look up I could see the Joker and Batman costumes... I had to have a look!

    It is not a toy shop but they do have figures on display... I asked them to open the cabinet for a photo of He-man with the figures!

    Well thanks for the picture Swift, I do need a detail of the shop and take a look on the place. Maybe I could drop by this weekend and take a look. and I don't remember there's a mall on Golden Triangle. Maybe you refer to Bukit Bintang (Star Hill).

    For some weird reason I don't know much of my city. but the picture answers all.
