'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

Season 1 was good until the finale.

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

I guess their multi-billion dollar movie franchise kinda has them ignoring everything that...isn't that.

 

This puts WFC to shame but I still think Mattel would rather trade places.

Never cared for Tri-Klops as the tech guy. He was always the cook swordsman bounty hunter.

Is that a typo or was he actually Skeletor's cook in addition to the other things?

'Cause that's way more entertaining.

Unfortunately no, he was never his cook.  Which makes you wonder who was...?

The Evil Warriors. That's all they've ever been called.
 


As for the name of Skeletor's crew, I can't find it but I recall a version of the original opening referred to them as the evil Masters of the Universe rather than the evil forces of Skeletor.


Thanks to both of you! Ugh, I have the retro toys on card too. I could have looked at the back.

Right, so youtube had the trailer for the new netflix show.

 

Yeah, ain't gonna buy the toys cause of it or nothing: but damn does it look good. While the original had that certain charm, a he-man where they can finally get violent, with mark hamill doing the crazy voice for skeletor? Yeah, sold.

It's funny, I haven't seen any of the recent Power Con exclusives pop up on eBay yet.

 

I'm still holding out hope that Mattel will pull their heads out of their asses and release that Secrets of Greyskull set to retail. Even slightly altered and exclusive to a retailer would be fine with me. It's all new tooling, so I can't imagine them dropping all that money into new molds just to use them once on an exclusive.

 

It's frustrating that they intentionally left the Space Armour out of the castle, only to release it as a EXTREMELY limited con exclusive, so most people can't ever complete their Greyskull.

Does Hellraiser fit in this group? Were MOTU fans watching Hellraiser in the 80s? I know bugger all about it but I doubt I'd watch it even now!

Seems like it's a list of films that's crying out for the likes of Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Goonies, Gack to the Guture... but nope. Hellraiser?

I'm suspecting something like this, yes. The puzzle box/artifact that has some kinda big mythical thing attached is the easiest way to homage Hellraiser without dipping into the horror genre or such.

Indeed, but I think there might be more here that weren't in the original series than what was -- especially if you take out stuff like Attak-Trak that didn't look like the toy at all.

I used metal wire instead of rubber washers like the video suggested. So it's not exactly a kid safe toy anymore. The legs are kinda wobbly. But they are attached and they can stand on their own (King Hiss better than Hordak).

I used the rubber O-rings and metal eyelets method and it worked really well. There are actual replacement bands you can get now. I think they're called He-Bands.

I've seen the He-bands and considered it. This way just seemed simpler though. It's just nice to have them in one piece. And now I also have a plan of action for when it happens to some of the others.

My Origins Ram Man came in from Amazon.

it's funny, the only other heroic character I've had is Stratos and I like him fine but that's it. As soon as I stood Ram Man next him though immediately come the thought: I need to buy a He-man.

For some reason these two guys together created an actual void on the shelf where He-man needs to stand.


-ZacWilliam, wish any of the deluxe toys had hit any stores at all. I was really lucky to have even found Ram at retail price online.

He-Man and Skeletor are still everywhere for me. They may have absolutely nothing else, but Target and Walmart will always have He-Man and Skeletor.

I can usually dependably find Battle Cat and Skysled with Prince Adam too.

Found the Origins deluxe wave with Battle Armor He-Man and Skeletor and Buzz Saw Hordak at Target. Had to get Battle Armor Skeletor. He and Man E Faces were the only MOTU figs I had as a kid. Too bad Ill never see an Origins Man E Faces.
Signatures are overrated.
