You may recall Joe Amaro teaming up with vintage He-Man packaging artist Rudy Obrero to create a MOTU-themed vehicle called the Manta Raider. Well, Joe’s got some good news for those who wished they could get their own: At the He-Man.org Power Party I finally got a chance to sit down and talk to Rudy […]
First off, I’ll admit my site poll is anything but scientific. But I do think it, along with plenty of anecdotal evidence, suggests that one of the main, if not the main, reason many former Club Eternia subscribers are not re-subscribing next year is due to Mattycollector’s customer service.
Though never produced, Matchbox showed off a remote control Johnny Five from the film Short Circuit in their 1988 catalog.

I took this shot while working on a review of the Leonardo Classic Collection & Nickelodeon TV figures, but the main reason for taking it was to participate in this week’s assignment for CoolandCollected’s League of Extraordinary Bloggers. You can see C&C’s own entry here, as well as a list of links to other entries […]
So, BigBadToyStore has put up their 2013 MOTUC pre-orders. Some of them, like Jitsu, are already sold out, and that’s a good sign. The more pre-orders they sell, the more subscriptions BBTS may buy before the August 6 deadline and the more likely the subscription is to hit its target. If BBTS can, say, sell […]
