Honestly, I think it had also pretty much run it's course at the time. They had enjoyed great success for years, but the basic premise had already been stretched to it's extremes in regard to what gimmicks could be included. After all, they were down to including barbarian cowboys, Transformers knockoffs that were just rocks and a random dude holding a big clamp. As wonderfully goofy as it was, kids didn't really see much appeal in that.

So I finally got around to opening my Castle Grayskull. First of all, wasn't it supposed to come in some protective mailer box? Mine didn't, and thankfully, I'm not a MISB collector, or else I would have been a little irked.
I think my favourite part of the castle is the golden skulls. Silly, I know, but it's neat to put heads up on the "pikes" of the lift. Also, as much as I like Standor as he was released, slapping on a golden head to the body and putting the Standor helmet on it makes for a really neat looking figure. It's like Cosmic God Skeletor or something. King He-Man looks good sitting on the throne. It just sucks that you have to remove his cape-attached armour in order to do so. Why his cape isn't detachable, I'll never know.
Now I need to go dig all my MOTUC figures out of storage so that they can move into their new castle.

Han Solo stopped by Eternia...shot some swordsman and yet another unsuspecting green alien.
...man, Harrison Ford really just casually shot a lot of people back then, didn't he?
Later, Keldor and Marlena caught up on old times!

I avoid the Org like the plague, but that did shed an interesting light into the politics of the Org and why it has a reputation for being so sycophantic towards Toy Guru and Mattel.
I still enjoy my MOTUC collection, but damn, I can't wait for the line to finally end and the property fade back into obscurity.

I haven't really tried to get back to the ORG since I was banned from the forms sometime in 2005 and never found out why (emails were ignored). I don't remember saying or doing anything that would stand out as untoward, but that doesn't really mean anything.

Tempests and teacups and all that, the blog post itself doesn't seem like the most clear cut thing either. I did enjoy the Power and Honor Foundation book (not $50 enjoy it, but thems the breaks).
Oh and I'm selling my spare, complete, Draego-Man: http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1555.l2649
I was going to do a New-Adventures custom, but I'll never get around to it.

I get to wake up to Skeletor every morning now. Ever since we watched Robot Chicken she's been, like, obsessed with the character. He's now the morning alarm on her phone. Any Skeletor gift ideas that are off the beaten path? She's already bought herself a few figures online, but I'm looking for something exceptional.
