    COTU pictures from Matthew

    My friend Matthew from COTU send me a CD of a bunch of pictures that he took of his figures. I felt strange sharing it in the past, but I was cleaning and came across the CD and decided to share them you guys.

    Itís funny, he told me one time that this all started because he wanted to make a green He-Man figure to be like a Hulk figure.

    He first tried to paint one green, but it didnít work right, so he started casting the parts. After a ton of money spent on trial and error, he finally got his Hulk figure made.

    Youíll see it in the collection.
    Anyway have fun going through them, there are a lot of them.

    Anyone willing to share a brief history of COTU? I see it mentioned all the time, but I missed it when it was happening.

    COTU was a small group of customizers who teamed up to design vintage MOTU figures.

    Members:

    -Mathew (Skeletoncrew)
    -Galaxy warrior
    -Me ( Mike Bock)
    -Octavio


    We designed a lot of stuff, great times back then.
    Mathew was a great loss.
