Well if you didn’t know by now i am an 80’s toy fanatic!In fact when i decided to collect again my sole objective was to only acquire vintage 80’s action figures.Well,that plan sort of back fired when HASBRO released the G.I. Joe ROC/ POC line,Captain America and the collectability of the Marvel Universe stuff is insane!Luckily every now and then i am able to visit my local hobby shop where all kinds of retro-coolness can be had for a pretty decent price and the bargain bins overflow with goodies!I don’t know about you but i like to head straight for the bargain bins in hopes to find those hard to find toys that are so overpriced these days on sites like Ebay ,Amazon and other hobby shops who do business online.The great thing about these shops is that you get to see,touch and inspect what your buying and there are no high shipping prices.There’s nothing like getting what you want and taking it home the same day.Take for instance this 1982 M.O.T.U. He-Man figure.I couldn’t believe that i was able to pick this little gem up for $2.50.There was a bin with about 5 or 6 1980’s M.O.T.U. figures all priced at $2.50.Some were in pretty rough shape and my He Man figure has a small nick on his left foot but not too bad.I liked He-Man as a kid but always seemed to gravitate more towards the GI Joe stuff.Nonetheless they were and still are a very cool toy, display piece and 80’s action figure!
You have the power with this one my friend!
I know it! I just love this guy!
This figure looks huge! He needs to toss me those steroids so I can beef up like him… ha ha. $2.50 is a great price for a great display piece, very cool.
LOL Thanks J.Yeah i love Masters of the Roid-verse…i mean Universe figures!
a pretty great toy- loved these as a kid. yes, the funnest way to find toys old and new are “in the wild” -i now have two of those BAM! stores in my neighborhood- the dollar conic bins are epic!
I have been collecting these for a couple years now. Have about 30 figures all complete plus castle greyskull and snake mountain complete still on the hunt though!
SDT: I agree SDT,some of these hobby shops just have wall to wall vintage toys and tons of bargain bins to look through.
Jacob: Welcome to Action Figs and Things!WOW 30 complete figures and two complete playsets… that’s amazing!Thanks for dropping by 😉
