    The mysterious Savage He-Man variant formerly known as "Wonder Bread He-Man"

    Is Wonderbread He-Man real or is he a hoax? I was on a site that said that the Wonderbread He-Man is a hoax so, I don't know to go in search for it or not.

    I usually don't care if they're hoaxes, if I like them, I buy them.

    Which is the true Wonder-Bread He-Man? I've seen him in pics with no armor and a brown ax, and with black Zodak armor with red weapons. Which is the true Wondy?

    I think JOAH-MAN has one in it's baggie. It doesn't have the armor but has either the brown axe or the sword. RAGE

    Here is a shot of my WB He-Man, just for corroboration (and personal pride). Enjoy.

    I think I may prefer Wonder Bread He-Man to the actual He-Man.

    Wonder Bread He-man is real, because many people own one from their youth, so we can assume it's not a custom someone made recently to cash in. As to the origins and which promotion he came from no one has a clue. And also the weapons he came with, no one has a clue either about the weapons and armor. It is assumed he came with the maroon ax and sword because the Fowlers bought one that came in a baggie and had a piece of paper and it had the ax and sword in the baggie. The black zodiac armor came from the fact that someone on the internet had one with the armor on so people assume it belongs to him. Until we find out which promotion sold him we will never know what his origins are and what weapons he came with. I personally believe it is an Early CONAN figure and when mattel decided not go the conan route, they had to get rid of them and gave them out in sometype of promtion. Mattel was recently asked by JVS3 about the origins but they said they had no records of him. I believe they know about the origin, but they are not going to tell us because in the early 80's they were sued by the Conan Franchise so they won't tell us if it is a conan figure because they could be sued again. The full court document was posted by POE GHOSTAL a while back, maybe he has the link and can post it again.

    here are my WB He-man's, everyone else is showing theirs so heres mine.

    You don't believe the Fowler's bagged WB to be real? What about the little piece of paper they had with it for the mail in instructions for the promotion? It offered a choice between a Barbie toy, two other lines from Mattel, and MOTU, represented by Man-E-Faces. If this promotion was not for WB He-man, what did you get when you mailed away to that? I wish the page at he-mantoys.com was still available!
    Just curious, and interested in the discusion.

    I should have been more clear. I DO believe the Fowlers WB he-man to be real. The problem is that no one knows from what promotion the Fowlers baggie He-man came from.

    So, if the bagged WB is real, isn't the question of what weapons settled? The maroon recast short sword and axe are in that bag. Do you know of any other site that has their bagged WB pics up? thanks

    The only people that have a bagged WB he-man are the Fowlers. As far as I know there are no other WB He-man in baggies. I think the Fowlers gave all their pictures to this site, so maybe once the site is completed pictures will be up.

    i get into the whole WB mystery in this thread.http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...threadid=19383 the only reason i don't believe that wb he-man is Conan (Tulsa doom coincidence aside) is because of this early sculpted prototype, so far into the design and we already see the he-man we know, so that forces you to re think the whole Conan origin a little doesn't it?i do however believe that Conan was either tied up by Mattel so as to corner the market without a worthy opponent on the toy shelf, or that they simply dropped the whole Conan thing and went on to another barbarian based idea very early in to production the second photo provides a little meat to my second theory, although personally i prefer the first.

    The WB He-Man we have came as is in a baggie. The coupon could have been another promotional offer, but who knows?

    The toy seller I bought it from said his wife ordered it through the mail, but does remember from who.

    Sorry about the website. Too many other things are occupying my time.

    Thanks for the info, Darren. I think the question that pops into most peoples' minds now is how much you paid for the bagged WB!

    right on

    Wato-

    I paid just over $200 for mine on eBay a few months ago. That was for just the figure, not his proper weapons, although they did include every weapon ever speculated to have come with him except the maroon sword and axe. As you can see frm the picture in my posta bove, he was in great shape, especially after I cleaned him up a bit. I am very curious to see what a complete WB He-Man would go for on eBay. If I stay as broke as I am right now, we may just all see!

    LORD FALLEN ELDOR: Do you know who owns both those prototypes in your post? Are they Peter LeRoses?

    There's one but its pretty jacked and def. not worth $53 in that jacked condition. I'd probably throw $50 for one that isnt that jacked.
