    Greetings from a fellow MOTU fan!

    Hello everyone, Sizz-Lor here.

    A brief introduction. I'm a child of the 80s, like a lot of you I'm sure, and I recently had my love of MOTU rekindled. My fondest childhood memories are of the TV shows and toys. He-Man, Transformers, Thundercats, GI Joe, The Real Ghostbusters, and SilverHawks, etc. were the best.

    I've been collecting action figures on and off since my mid-20s, mainly T-formers and McFarlane horror figures. Recently I got hooked on the MattyCollector Voltron line (always wanted one as a kid and never got him) and while there I kept eyeing the MOTU Classics. My undying, carnivorous sense of nostalgia kicked in the other day and I had to pull the trigger on the He-Man, Skeletor, and Battle Cat figures. My OCD refused to release its bear-trap grasp on me and I had to track down the vintage figures on Ebay What a fun hunt to begin. I need to rewatch some of the TV series to see it holds up, as I haven't seen it in years, and Voltron was hit-and-miss.

    I look forward to chatting with all of you here. Thanks for having me.

    I was a fan of the Voltron cartoon, but didn't get to watch it very often for some reason. Which is a shame, because when I did I was enthralled, lol. I definitely preferred lion Voltron, was never too into the vehicle Voltron. Thundercats was probably my favorite show back then, but He-Man ruled the toybox.

    What was your favorite show and/or toy back then?

    Welcome to He-Man.org. Hope you enjoy your time here.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I did like the classic lion series. They may be on Hulu.
    There was also a lion one that came out in the early 2000. With Tim Curry as the voice of Lotor. That also has a special place in my heart as well.

    Thanks MOTU_Maniac and HammerFall!

    I'll have to check out that Voltron series, I knew of the recent Voltron Force, but not that one. Wonder if they had a toyline for it.
