    Returning to my first love....vintage MOTU

    Hello folks!

    It's been a while but I just wanted to express the love that I have for MOTU vintage.

    MOTU was my absolute favorite as a kiddo and I have some of my best Christmas memories from when Santa brought me Webstor, Buzz Off, He-man, Skeletor, Whiplash, Man-E-faces, Man at Arms, Battle Cat and Panthor!

    Then I would save up my allowance money and buy more MOTU figures when my grandma or mom went to Roses or Sears

    I don't actually know what happend to my MOTU vintage figures. I know we moved and they were gone somehow...a very sad day for me.

    To fill this hole I have delighted in collecting the MOTUC line and still do, but I just still wanted the vintage figs.

    So this week I begain my quest to get them all again!!! So far I have nabbed: Webstor, Buzz-Off, Spikor, Clawful (both versions), Man-E-Faces, Fisto, Sy-Klone, Roboto, Clamp Champ and Mer-Man who all appear to be in good shape and complete, but we'll see once I have them in hand. I did find a really good fix for loose legs too that I'm actually excited to try out if any of them arrive with excessivley loose legs.

    Nice! I would love to get them MOC, but it is just too much money for me to drop with all the other lines I collect. I have been snagging them loose, but scrutinizing paint and accessories heavily. I may drop a couple hundred on some of the Re-issues that came out circa 2001. Man do I wish I had nabbed them 12 years ago!!!

    I'm pretty much in the same place as you. Lost all my stuff as a kid, recently got into MOTU in a big way. Mostly I'm just getting the stuff I really liked as a kid, but also MAA and Teela just for completeness of the very early stuff.

    Welcome!

    I hear you! I'm picking up the stuff I had as a kid and some of the ones I always wanted, but never got. I can't wait for the ones I've found so far online to arrive!

    Yeah, I've got some of those too. Whiplash, for instance. I was always playing with my friend's, but I never had one.

    I find I'm satisfied with gently used stuff as long as all the accessories are there.

    Yeah, I am OK with gently used stuff too..in fact 10 of the figures I have coming are just that. I couldn't resist the 2 five packs I found on ebay for a decent price...and maybe I'm weird, but I just want to enjoy opening some vintage (reissue) masters figures. If I ever come across vintage masters that are original on card..you better believe they are staying on card!

    Yeah, I got a Mer-Man Commemorative figure coming in the mail, unopened. Mostly I got it because it was cheap and has The Power Sword minicomic reproduction in it, and also the waist spring on the one I've got doesn't work, and that bothers me more than I thought it would. I will be opening that one.

    I'm with you, I wouldn't be able to open up a sealed vintage figure, even though I prefer loose figures for display.
