    Interesting Savage He-Man find

    I was trolling eBay recently and stumbled across the auction (completed) linked below. Well, I was all set to snipe it but a work email came in that took my attention and I missed the closing by a few seconds. Doh!

    Check it out and read the description. Then, scroll down to the last few photos.

    I checked and the seller has never sold any other MOTU items so she/he seems legit. The fact that they were found at an estate sell with the others certainly makes it sound like they had probably been there a while.

    Anyway, thought some of you might be interested. If the winner is on here, I would like to know what you think after you get them.

    Most have you have been at this longer than I have, so feel free to correct anything I say or straight-up call me a dummy.

    That's wild: it looks like there are two brown haired He-mans in the lot.

    Lots of other weird figures, too!

    I know it! Still kicking myself. Any idea on some of those other figures pictured in the lot? There were a couple I didn't recognize as MOTU but then I'm still learning. They do look like MOTU though.

    There's Arak and Hercules from Remco's Warlord line and the Skull one is from Warrior Beast (also Remco, I believe).

    Most of the figures in this lot are from 1984, with the exception of Faker (1983), Man-At-Arms and Stratos. But it seems likely the latter two could have been reissues from 1983 and possibly were purchased in 1984 as well.

    This might date Savage He-Man between 1983 and 1984.

    I can't believe that this has been sold for $47... BTW that bootleg in the middle looks just like He-Ro!
