    Greetings from the tropics!

    Hullo, all!

    MotU fan from the tropics here! Greetings from sunny Malaysia!

    Loved the old cartoon, but I think my favourite premise is probably that of the original toyline; ye know, the whole post-apovalyptic dark age of technology motif where He-Man and Skeletor are just two warlords fighting over Greyskull.

    I'm a big fan of the new 3D reboot on Netflix. Not a huge fan of the animation style but I do like the cartoony proportions.

    I started getting into He-Man a few years after the original line ended in 87. I think it was... 1990, 1991? (I'm not old, really. )
    Had Battle Armor He-Man, Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, Ram Man and She-Ra as a nipper, but of course, kids being kids I lost them.

    About 20 years ago, I happened upon Ram Man at a yard sale in Tassie, so I picked him up and restored him.
    I did not know that metallic paint could have rust streaks.

    I've always been rather curious about figure customizing so when Origins (and its modular nature) arrived I was thrilled and on top of collecting my favourites, I also started kitbashing a few, mixing in a few parts from Masters of the WWE.


    L-R: Lootor, Faker, Vespero, Meat-Beat, Nyah-Mook, Double-Fisto, Slavor, Conan of Eternia, Prince Keldor.

    With the collection reaching around 30 figures, I realize that my newly discovered addiction may have gotten *somewot* out of hand...

    I don't have a problem, really.

    I can stop anytime I want!

    ... I just don't want to.

    Anyhow, that's me. I highly doubt ye want to know about anything outside of MotU (I have a tendency towards rambling), so I'll leave it at that.

    i look forward to meeting my fellow MotU fans!
