    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...

    Dang close, this thread started on September 19, 2002, 04:40pm I think the mystery will be one for the ages timeless and never figured out.

    And maybe it's beter to keep this legend, there has been so much fun in this thread, and to have it finally solved it could be a huge let down where it came from when all is said and done, but then you never know

    Wow Ive been here almost seven years, crazy lol.

    Did it have any weapons or anything with it or was it just the figure itself?

    Now thats some good stuff right there! So are you gonna sell him and make something like a 600% profit or will you cherish him forever?
