A brief history.
In late 2008 Mattel launched their new line of Masters of the universe figures. I have been in this line from the beginning give or take. I never purchased the sdcc exclusives of King Grayskull (Regular and Bronze) before the actual subscription service started but I was part of the subscription service from the beginning. I remember getting He-Man in the mail and I was blown away, new sculpts and new parts for a new modern line. The four horsemen and Mattel outdid themselves. Since then, this line has grown to be one of my favorite lines of all time.
I’ve collected vintage Masters of The Universe as a kid, vintage star wars, modern gijoe, Transformers Vintage and modern, Marvel legends, DC universe classics and many many others. (Anyone remember Visionaries?). But none of those lines remind me of my childhood like Masters of the Universe.
I would wake up in the morning before school and watch He-man, I think Voltron was also on either before or after it as well as Scooby Doo. I mean were going back to the early 1980′s. I also collected the New Adventures of He-man (they were in space), and even watched when the cartoon was on in the early 2000′s. But they didn’t reel me in like the Classics line has.
The line has been going since 2008 and were now going into 2015. The toy line is a subscription service from Mattel. So you get a couple figures a month at about 27.00 a piece for the figures. 2015 will complete our Toy Line. The problem is were at 77% toward getting the subscription renewed. We need to be at 100 % by the 18th of August. There has been some issues, some quality control issues and lets not forget digital river (the company who takes our credit card orders) they were a nightmare but for the most part the issues have been fixed. Quite frankly in my opinion Mattel has done a great job.
I implore you if your on the fence please subscribe! We need to finish this line and get the remaining figures from the Vintage line! I’m even in for a second subscription just to help out.
Ladies and gentlemen lets get this done!
