Holy....freakin....crap!! really shocked

MOTU, soo much MOTU!

Only staction I bought was Sorceress, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to buy Randor....& the Grayskull Battle Station playset extension or whatever it is he standing in front of, cause that looks awesome!

Are you planning on tracking down the Eternia playset one day? or is that near impossible?

My brother had the other playsets, but I'd never even heard of Eternia until a few years ago.

great variety of figure scales. It always looks MUCH better than a hord of the same size plastic.

Wow, so many memories. When I was a kid I had so many of those gen1 MOTU figs...

Love the full sized statues too, I've got the Skeletor one myself, always wanted to pick up the Tri-Klops and Trap-Jaw ones to go with old skull head.

I notice that you don't seem to have the convention exclusive He-Man statue either, unless I missed it...that ones a grail for a lot of collectors. As is the full size Grayskull Door statue, which I almost had once, until a deal went sour and the guy I was going to buy off pulled out at the last minute when someone else contacted him and offered him $50 more (after he'd done the deal with me), and the bastrad sold it to the other guy instantly...grrr.

Anyway that is one kick ass looking collection. Hmmm, don't see an Attack Trak there either. Anything else you're missing/chasing? I've still got a lot of my vintage MOTU's (in various conditions) packed away...

WOW!!! My MOTU childhood memories are limited to watching the cartoon before school and drooling over the toys at my local Toyworld. As I was a Star Wars fan as a kid, I was only allowed to buy toys from one line.....

Nah, the eternia playset is something you need to build in pieces nowadays as a complete one needs a Lotto win to pay for it, and really i never had it as a kid and it has no relevance to the line for me.....

It's a custom i did, when i went to comic con in 04 i took it to get signed by the 4 horsemen but they weren't there, and last year of course they were there but i didn't take it with me.....

Yeah i'm aiming for all vintage characters and vehicles, still a few to go, and no 01 statue there, last one i could get was $800usd shipped, i could have picked one up at comic con last year for $500 but with the thing statue i was pushing size limits anyway.....one day maybe.....
And i can't believe you didn't comment on Hordak in the MOTUC shelf..... Sad

Looks sweet, billy boy.
Only thing i will say is you will need to triple up on the figures on shelves if you want to display even half of your collection.

Thats because he has an awesome wee Scotish mate. Wink
Although i do have an awesome big Scaussie mate who took me to SDCC in the first place.
Was badly hanging to win the spirit of greyskull for him to, i even offered to roll the guy who did win it Laughing

DBF:I get what your saying but i also know how massive your collection is and i can see you having to chop into the kitchen to get it all in.

This is where I assume that "collection" is a euphemism.

But, yes, that's pretty impressive. Makes me want to get the parents to send all my old MOTU figures over.

I beleive Eternia never was released in Australia (I know I bought mine from the USA) that why a lot of Oz collectors never saw them. I think the Powers of Grayskull dino where the hardest for me to fine when I completed the collection.

I don't see any love for the New Adventures of He-Man. (That was the easiest to collect as it was all in Venture before they went belly up for cheap.)

Excellent collection. Love the Statues. Thanks for sharing.

Ah the pipe dreams begin again - that's ok, when I win the $60 million next week, I'll shout you all a set each.....
No seriously......
In other news - where are you gonna squeeze the next few MOTUC figures? That little nook might get mighty cozy.
