    MOTUC cardback interesting (useless) statistics

    Each month when I get my new MOTUC figures I:

    1. rearrange all my figures including swapping heads, weapons, etc.

    2. read (and discuss) the new bio(s)

    3. play the guessing game of "Who's on the back?" with my son. Some make sense; others not so much.

    I recently created a spreadsheet that tracks what figures are pictured on the back. At least once (can't remember on whom) BA He-Man was listed as He-Man (so counted as BA He-Man). If they only appear on 1 cardback it is their own (except Captain Glenn/Queen Marlena which appear on their opposite & Rattlor does not appear on his cardback). I even included the figures shown on the back of the weapons paks, the Weapon Rack & the Mo-Larr vs. Skeletor set.
    * Note regarding the Castle Grayskull box - just listed the figures shown on the back, not the artwork nor the castle features pictures. So Evil-Lyn and the Sorceress do not get credit. But the Zoar shown on the back is creditting the one that comes with the Sorceress since it came with armor and a stand as pictured. Also, Castle Grayskull, the Wind Raider, the Weapons Rack and the Jet Sled are also pictured on the back, but not included in this list since they are not characters.*
    "0" - listing characters that have not appeared on the card back, but have been released.
    Here are the results:

    * note - I did these while looking off of the Mattycollector site and other sources *

    Thanks. I was starting to think that they were not only useless, but pointless since no one was commenting.....

    No it just goes to show your caption "Obsessed with MOTUC" is no joke. Interesting, to say the least though.
    Highly Recommended for Fantastic Trades/sales: cayman shen, ElkThunder, Geek-man,

    Nah, it's interesting enough... just not much else to say about it.

    Isn't it weird that Skeletor shows up MORE than He-Man? The Cartoons are Usually called He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Awesome stats. But do you count BA He-Man as He-Man. B/c if you do He-Man is on 40 different cardbacks.

    Not that I'm complaining because he's one of my favorites in this line, (just picked him up recently at Power-Con) but it's surprising to me how much Scareglow is on the backs of these.
