    Masters of the Universe Vintage Toys Reference Guide

    Hello my fellow Orgers. My newest book is finally published!! Please check it out!!

    Have you ever wondered why some figures look different than the standard? Which accessories go with which figure? Or how many different countries produced these toys? All those questions and more get answered in this book. Nearly a decade of research goes into this work and unravels the mysteries to production of one of the World's most successful and favorite toy lines. Every toy and its production details are covered in these pages, and designed to double as a checklist. Your collection cannot be complete without this guide.

    This book is printed in the larger 8 1/2 x 11 format in full color, is over 400 pages, and features custom artwork by James Eatock.

    Wow, really cool! I don't suppose you could post some images of a few of the pages so we can see what kind of details you're including for each figure?

    Fantastic! Well done.

    Why not do a vintage discussion thread on this and say there's a Marketplace thread for people interested in buying?
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2021!

    Thank you Val!! The support so far has been incredible.
    I was going to start a thread but I wasn't sure if that would be frowned upon, thanks for the go-ahead!! I will absolutely do that now.

    Congratulations on finishing the book. I'm glad you didn't give up on it. This seems like a massive undertaking. I just purchased a copy.
