    That's true Val, though I can't think of any quite so large as MOTU.

    Barbie, GI Joe, Transformers, Hot Wheels, Lego, even Mr. Potato Head- all had numerous guides. Not sure about Thundercats, but then Thundercats never moved as many units as MOTU.

    Having collected several of the lines, I've always felt like MOTU was Mattel's redheaded stepchild.

    Part of that may also be the extent of those lines.

    Just the G1 Transformers line alone had almost 350 releases. And then when you get into G2 and beyond, that's a crazy number of releases!
    G.I. Joe RAH had something like 150+ of just the figures, coupled with more vehicles than MOTU had, and then you can go into all the releases since then.
    and let's not even attempt to count Barbie.


    MOTU, while huge for it's time, hasn't had the product quantity or length-span some of those other brands have enjoyed.

    Again, I'm just spit-balling a reason for a lack of people rushing to do a guide. I do think a guide would be awesome, regardless of all that!
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Hasn't Pixel Dan been teasing a guide about a year ago? What happened to that project?

    I didn't see any confirmation from Pixel Dan that he was actually teasing a toy guide.

    Dan just likes to show off his collection and photography-skills. And in the photos Val clearly is enabling him.

    Are some of the Dark Horse books out of print? Or are we just between printings right now? I was going to finally grab the Minicomic and Filmation books, but Amazon only has them available from 3rd party sellers.

    Yes, some are running out of their print runs. We don't know yet if they'll reprint them.

    Are dark horse done with motu? I've really enjoyed the books they published, especially the art book., the character guide and the minicomic collection. I'd be over the moon with a UK comics collection or a 200x collection? Or has the ship sailed?

    I independently started working on a MOTU toy guide about two years ago. I've done a couple for some comics, and let me tell you, just the variants on the original line is daunting. It's very difficult to draw the line between what's a variant and what isn't. I haven't quite abandoned the work yet but it has definitely gone from a full blown guide to more like a collectors checklist. I would say I'm above 80% done with it, maybe I'll keep at it and get it done. I'm certainly open to any formatting suggestions and/or help getting it done. PM me if you're interested

    Yeah, undoubtely Dark Horse / Mattel should release an OFFICIAL toy guide covering all the eras, from the 80s till MOTUC and MOTUO eventually
    Comics, filmation episodes, artwork, we basically had pretty much everything! we even got a compendium! what's left? maybe something about NA and the 200x period.
    "The Most Powerful Man in the Universe..."
    "Where Hope seems Lost..."
    "Good Journey!"
    "I was summoned on the future..."
    "A Hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
    "A Hero will Rise..."
    "The Power of Grayskull Awakens......"
    "Let the Power Returns....!"

    The cardback/box art idea would REALLY interest me, especially if it included all comic covers and posters. An " artists of motu", would be awesome

    Though if they did a UK comic reprint book. Vintage material alone could be 1-3 volumes worth. BEFORE getting into the NA stories.

    My guess is that a toy guide is next -- seems to be a very popular request and other toy lines already have guides out there -- but, man, I would love seeing reprints of the magazines. Wish I hadn't sold my set of the US version long ago...
