So almost 4 years ago, I made a post about a mind blowingly amazing new thing they were making. It was the beginning of the new Masters of the Universe Classics line. Available only through Mattel’s online Collector’s store, Matty Collector, I was pretty sure I’d never be able to get one. The price point was too high for me at the time. I was between credit cards, so buying online was a huge hassle. Since they were going to be a very limited run, I figured I would go without forever.
However on October 12 this year, He-Man’s 30th anniversary, Matty Collector launched a one day only sale. Both He-Man and Battle Cat for $30 + shipping. That’s less than what they charge for Battle Cat alone. I had to get them.
But these weren’t the first MOTUC figures I ordered. Just a week before my birthday this year, I was able to order Skeletor, and my online namesake, Spikor. They arrived pretty quickly, just a couple days before He-Man’s birthday sale. I also managed to land a good deal on a loose She-Ra figure.
I really like the look of all of them. I’m dreading the day if/when Charlotte asks me if she can play with them or open them. Fortunately, She-Ra’s already out of the package, and I have several of the old figures that she could play with. I don’t think I’ll be able to outright refuse her if she wanted to play with them.
Since Canada Post sucks royal ass, I just received He-Man and Battle Cat this week. I think they make an excellent addition to the shelves of my Nerdery.
Unfortunately, now the line’s so successful that they’re making something else, that I can guarantee I’ll never have.
