    Jumping back into my favorite childhood hero, for work!! Need your help.

    It's been a long time since I've thought about MOTU and how much time I spent playing with the toys and watching the show when I was a kid.

    I'm a marketing and branding strategist for a creative agency and we're (re)launching our blog. The article I'm working on is on how to market a tech product like He-Man. What lessons can we learn from how He-Man got made and how the MOTU franchise got so huge? It's been super fun to research and I think I have a pretty solid piece.

    One lesson I want to focus on is multi-channel marketing, for which I'm using the merchandising as an example. I would love to find a photos of a massive licensed-product collection (lunchboxes, bedsheets, happy-meal boxes, etc.) to put in the piece. I've seen some good ones on He-Man.org, but most of them are figures photos and I'm mostly looking for the "other" stuff. I also didn't want to just rip one off if I found one. I want to properly credit and link to the site as an example of a great resource.

    So if anyone has a great collection photo, or can take one for me, I am happy to credit and link to you guys here.

    Otherwise, I'm just super happy to have found this great resource and am thrilled to be here. I'll share a link to the article when it's up.

    Thanks! I'm super-excited! I also have a nine-year-old son and have been trying to get him into some of the classic series. MOTU is definitely up for him to get into.

    Welcome aboard! Best of luck with your article! You'll find collection photo threads in the individual forums. Maybe you could contact members who posted there to get authorization to use their photos.

    Awesome. Thanks!

    Still trying to figure out the lay of the land. Assuming discussions on licensed merch for the original series would be in the Vintage He-Man and She-Ra Forum, correct?
