    Apparently, the Dutch are coming!

    Apparently, the Dutch are coming! Seeing as how I'm the third person from The Netherlands in a row. Not that we're affiliated, it's just a funny coincidence. I'm new here and truth be told, I forgot all about He-Man until I saw The Toys that Made Us and The Power of Grayskull documentaries on Netflix. Not much later my five year old daughter started watching the new She-Ra animated series (which I pushed for a little of course) and I remembered how much I loved Master of the Universe back in the day. Mainly due to the similarities with Frank Frazetta his artwork. I also remembered I used to have Castle Graskull and what not but I figured it got lost in time ( I moved around a lot). But behold, 27 years later my father recently uncovered 2 boxes with old toys including Castle Grayskull and several figures, two battlecats and one vehicle. They are in bad shape but still an amazing find after almost 3 decades. I came here to ask for help. I want to restore them to their former glory so I figured some experts here could give me tips, suggest some sites for spare parts or talk it out of my mind due to the costs. Not sure where to post it though, so please direct me to the proper forum for that.

    Also, a shout out to this website. I absolutely love it when communities come together about something they are passionate about and it's always sites like this, run by fans that make it possible. I really like that about the internet.

    Welcome to the forums!
    The Custom Creation section would have tips on repairing old figures.
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Thank you all for that warm welcome! Where is the Custom Creation section exactly? I don't see one with that title.
