Happy Birthday He-Man
I was looking for a thread to commemorate the 30th birthday of my favorite action figure. Here's an image to honor his muscle-bound legacy. Makes me feel so old!

Very cool. 30 years. Wow and to think I got my first two figures (Trap Jaw and Man-E-Faces) as a bribe to try hard in swimming lessons. Ha!

Perhaps I've missed the note, but what establishes today specifically as the 30th birthday? Did the first figures ship today? Or did Mattel just pick a date out of a hat for the 30th Anniversary Party Pak?
(In my canon, the twins' birthday is and remains December 21st. )

I think Scott Neitlich has said something along the lines of toys being sold officially Oct 12th, 1982.

Happy birthday He-man. Thank you for giving us He-man, Skeletor, Castle Grayskull, Orko, and so much more.
I think I'll spend the day watching He-man, reading the guide book by James Eatock, and organize my rather small action figure collection.
