    What ho!

    Hello everyone.

    I hope you are all well.
    I signed up to the forum a long while back but it took me a while to realise that I needed to introduce myself to read the other discussions - and then even longer to get around to deciding what to say. So hello all and here I am.

    I'm one of those people old enough to have watched the He-Man cartoon after school when it was first shown on ITV here in the UK. Orko quickly became (and stayed) my favourite cartoon character of all time (possibly why I ended up as a children's entertainer magician) and saw He-Man himself as a wonderful role model with the moral lessons at the end of each episode and the way he treated people if they were his enemy or not. I always loved that frame of mind. My brother and myself used to play with the toys and made our own castle Greyskull's out of those big nappy boxes that you used to get. We finally got the real thing for Christmas but I think our cardboard iterations were more fun. I waited ages for an Orko toy and even though I'd moved on to other things by the time Mattel made one, I still bought it and have it (and his ripcord) to this day.
    Transformers are my big passion (having been into them since 1984 and never growing out of them since) but MOTU has always held a special place in my heart and have always thought there should be more moral lesson-learning cartoons (that still advertise cool toys) like this that would make the world a much better place.
    Anyway, after going through my loft (where I keep my toy collection) a few years back, I rediscovered my MOTU toys and started watching the cartoons again, then watching the Netflix She-Ra series with one of my daughters and it all brought me back into this magical world.
    Looking forward to the Revelations show - I'm just preparing myself for the 'voices' being different.

    Well, I think that's enough about me. Thanks for having me onboard.

    Welcome aboard! I think we'll all get used to the voices rather quickly.

    Quick question. How do I add a custom avatar?
    Been trying to do it with no luck - there just doesn't seem to be the option.

    You'd have to upgrade your account to a standard user account. You can do that by changing the email associated with your account to a non-free email such as your school, work, ISP, etc. or by donating to the site.
