    I know Savage He-Man is a rare figure and I'd like one myself but this one was way over priced. Plus it ended with a BUY It Now. It didn't get bidded up to 550 but someone just decided to pay 550. I'm sorry but there are much better things you could do with that money other then spend it on a toy.

    i've only seen it go that high when afa graded, it usualy doesnt go much higher than 300usd, got mine for 90 USD but would have got it cheaper if only for the last 2 times people didnt tip the seller (for no obvious reason) that he had a wb he-man hidden in the lot Tippers out there hear me out, YOU OWE ME A LOT OF MONEY!

    I got mine back from recasing at AFA, and while they now put those acrylic pieces under the arms to stabilize the fig from marring (love it btw), I can still see pretty good in there, but see no numbers. Where about were these numbers? I don't have to pop the arms off to see them do I?

    cheers

    On mine:
    Left Arm 5 (backwards)
    Right Arm 8

    I also checked a couple of my regular He-Man figures and they had 6, 21, 21, 21

    They are mold cavity numbers and they are on all MOTU figures, Star Wars figure weapons... They are meaningless and totally random.

    so each number presents the mold it was made with? If there are enough similarities you can gather a group of molds that casted these wb he-mans, the only trouble then would be, mixing authentic with fakes and authentic with swapped arms, only if we got a large amount of numbers to check.

    Mine:

    Left 2 (inverted)
    Right 3

    I see, so many of the same mold (mold types?) may have different numbers? Even so, if a figure is at such a low production run, it's seems that these should be the same still. But if the arms are the exact same as He-Man, then many people might take the arm off and swap it out for preservation of the more rare figure. So you might get radically mixed results with this. But it seems pretty sound for this particular figure, as they should have all been made in the same location and for a very short amount of time.

    But I'll have to wait until I get another one for this, as I'm not having it cased a third time... not just yet anyways .

    Actually, you probably thumbed through the 2000 price guide from Krause. If so, I wrote the prices along with the figures discriptions. At the time I wrote it, I did much research on this character because my friend's mother ordered it.. They ate only Wonderbread bread.

    He made me a He-Man collector when his mom bought me Trap Jaw for my birthday. I was hooked from then..

    Anyway, I wrote "Savage He-Man" because that is what he had called it when he got it. he must have read it somewhere. I only wish he kept the proofs of purchase and the advertisement. Unfortunately, the Savage He Man he owned did not survive. I since owned 5 of them on and off. I know 2 people with bagged versions. One is listed all over on most of the websites. The other is in Chacago. When he bought the bagged version, he said it had a piece of paper in it; however, the bag had a hole large enough to remove a weapon. The weapons taht it came with was an ax and sword, but cannot confirm exactly because of the hole in the bag. I cannot remember what he had from my youth.

    If you are interested in reading the price guide check out Toy Shop's Action Figure Price Guide written in 2000 and edited by Elizabeth Stephan. Hope this helps a bit.

    Check out the writing in the bag compared to the grape nuts on this box. My friend did eat grape Nuts also now that I think of it.

    galaxy warrior:

    I am not saying it is or it isnt. Check out the writing inside the card "TEXT" It looks like a promotion from something. I thought this thread is to help find out where he came from.

    what would mattel/wonderbread hope to gain by denying it???? really?! [/QUOTE]

    I asked Wonder Bread about the Heman Wonder Bread promotion in the early 80's by clicking on this link --> http://www.wonderbread.com/contact.asp

    This was there response......

    " July 14, 2008

    Dear Mr. Joe Perez,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    We are always happy to help our consumers with their research. In regards to your email, unfortunately we do not have any information on the promotion you are inquiring about because when we took ownership of Wonder Bread around the mid-90's we did not attain the archival information prior to the mid-90's.

    Again, thank you for contacting Interstate Bakeries Corporation.

    Sincerely,
    Claribel Meza
    Consumer Response Representative "

    If this is the deny you are talking about, it does not seem like anyone denied anything.


    BTW Galaxy Warrior, your website is awesome. I have many of the Galaxy Warrior figures. You have a true talent there, cannot wait to see what other figures you make. Good work!!

    There are a lot of WB customs appearing on Ebay - at least the sellers are listing them as CUSTOMS....here is a pretty cool one on a custom card that recently ended:

    I saw the custom carded WB, cool card. I'm glad some of these sellers are admitting that they are customs.

    I think I need to post an updated picture of WB He-man/Savage He-man. He is still in a tupperware box at my parents house. Arkangel has the scan Darren did several years ago and it's still in there. Darren and I won this he-man off of ebay ~OCT 2000. This was the exact moment this particular thread started; I think...
