    New Member from Florida!

    Hey Eternians,

    I was a big MOTU fan as a child in the 80s, like everyone else. I started with Mego figures as a small child, but I was too young to really appreciate them. I moved onto STar Wars and GI Joe and still have tons of them (along with lots of new ones), but then it happened.

    I will never forget the day my Dad took me to Toys R Us and I saw all the new Masters of the Universe stuff. They were BRAND new and the pegs were full. He said I could choose any one I wanted. Of course, I got the He-Man and Battlecat set. The best thing was, as we were walking out of the aisle he said, "what's a hero without a villain to fight?" so he said I should get a bad guy, too! I figured - if I'm getting a bad guy, I want the worst of them all... Skeletor! This was a rarity for me since money was tight and usually when I wanted a toy, I would hear the dreaded 4 words, "We can't afford it." But I had just gotten a great report card to end the school year and Dad splurged a little more than usual!

    The ONLY negative thing I remember about that day was that Dad ended off the day by taking me to see "Megaforce". OMG - what a crap-fest! Not even a GOOD crappy like most of the 80's B movies!

    All my old MOTU stuff was lost in an ex-girlfriend's storage unit she never paid for, but I never forget that fantasy world! So, I lurked here for awhile, but now I've decided to join and begin collecting these new MOTU Classics!

    Oh wow, it is SO Bad, but not so bad it's good like most 80's films. So bad, it's embarrasing!

    Thanks, Drakken! I'm in St. Petersburg on the other coast. Can you believe I've been here 16 years and have never made it further east than Orlando?!

    This place is great! Glad I found it!

    Thanks, guys!

    Just wanted to say, in the span of a few days, I managed to get my hands on 5 new MOTUC thanks to this site! I scored the Eternian Palace Guard and Snake Men 2 packs PLUS a mean Vikor fig! Sweetness!

    Ok, so maybe this board isn't as chatty as some others I am on, but I still am having a ball!
