    8 Back HeMan

    Are the crazy prices warranted? I'm fairly new to collecting and would like one. Is with to without warrantee big when it comes to prices? Just hoped for some guidance from more experienced members.

    Thanks!

    Hi Rich!

    I got into vintage MOTU collecting about 4 years ago, and have seen a HUGE swing in asking prices on the 8 back figures. I was able to acquire a 8 back carded He-Man with a tough bubble for right at 100 when I first started collecting. When it came time to sell, he went for over 700!!!! Some sellers ask a premium for those warranty figures, and some are more reasonable. It all depends on who you deal with. I have found members of this forum to offer up some great deals at times, but others who will not budge one cent. I know this isn't giving you a straight forward answer, but it is my experience over the 4 years that I have collecting this line (my favorite toy line ever!).

    I am loving your photo by the way!

    Supposed to be a movie coming out. That'll probably keep the hype going.

    I think the prices will go up after Classics is over. Just IMO though.

    I don't think that many "high end collector" types post in these forums very often any more. Some of them never really have.

    I saw some interesting conversation regarding the price of a Leo Faker on Facebook the other day. if you want to talk about high end I almost **** my pants! To rich for my blood. They look awesome I've been wanting to pick up a fan made reproduction for a while now. That's good enough for me. plus, last I looked, I'd save A LOT of money.

    'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).
