Meteorbs?

Post by fuzzcat on Sun Mar 27, 2011 12:38 pm

So my lovely lady has moved in, and in unpacking some of her stuff we discovered 3 egg-shaped objects. She said she got them from a promo run in the mid-80s by an egg company (send in so many cartons, get a toy) - I was almost certain they were Meteorbs but waited to check on he-man.org, and guess what They were! She has the crocodile, dinosaur (some kind of terrapod) and elephant/mammoth - and says that there was also a lion which she never got,

Just wondering if anyone else remembers this deal? And just a general who out there has Meteorbs as part of their vintage MOTU collection? I was going to start getting some vintage MOTU eventually - may as well start with tracking down the rest of these!

Funny, I once scored a lion-egg transformer thing as a young lad from a Sunday "Trash & Treasure".

I had no idea what it was, or where it came from, but it was well made, and cool.

Fast-forward nearly 2 decades later, and randomly trawling the .Org's toy achive, I see said lion-egg, and find out that it's actually a MotU item! Shocked

I had one or two, but similar story, I'd picked them up through a flea market.

Never found out until years later that they were MOTU, and by then I'd actually given them to a kid who saw them in my stuff and liked em.

Definitely cool toys though. Very Happy
