Damn Reis, i'm jealous! I've been looking for one of those FOREVER; You were right about Ebay too, I don't think I've ever seen seen one under $55 (w/o shipping). I can't wait til Mattel does a re-issue.Btw: When you opened that toy? You could almost hear the clapping. TOTALLY agree with you about toys being taken out of the package. If you're not going to open them you've basically got a statue in a nice box. Well done, I really enjoyed this one!
that was GREAT! i didn't know about WonderBread He-Man... I agree with you open-the-toy philosophy-
Nice score!!!Yup, I had an original "WonderBread He-Man" http://toyriffic.blogspot.com/2008/04/i-have-pow-i-mean-wonderbread-he-man.html - got him in a big box of MOTU stuff (whole box, five bucks) and sold WBHM alone for about $300. Envy me.I do also have Wun-Dar. Indeed he is the next best thing. And I opened mine too :)
$300 for a He-man? I don't know if i envy or hate you lol.
Hhohohohoho awesome You don't collect to live, you live to collect we witnessed something magic today
great video blog Reis. absolutely agree with you on collecting. the nostalgia when getting and opening a new figure does it for me.speaking of MOTUC, did you get vikor? I was on the fence but decided to pass on it last night. I will wait for king hsss. come on Man-E-Faces in june
Thanks everyone! Glad you all liked this one!MORS, sadly, I tried, but couldn't get a Vikor. :( I got stuck on the white screen of death and by the time it got to the checkout, he was gone.I'm so bummed.
Ah the smell of a freshly opened toy. It is one of the best smells. : )
That sucks Reis. i heard he was gone after 3 minutes. the palace guards stuck around for a while
so i guess matty is going to put up more vikors in the next week or so. after looking at the pics, i think i'm getting one.
C'mon, Reis... I agree it's a blast to open your toys. However, as an artist yourself, you probably admire a toy or two's packaging... and the way the toy is presented inside. I crack open most of my stuff these days but do enjoy some things in the package. Especially vintage stuff... I could never crack open a MOC Mego Batman (or whatever) after it's been preserved for so long. I crack open most new stuff, though, and applaud you for digging into Wundar without even an exacto to preserve the card as much as possible. GASP! LoL.Sometimes, it's just plain cool to be going through an old box of figures and see the figures just as they looked on the store shelf.... packaging and all. I do agree with your belief, though, that a toy isn't truly a toy until it's opened. I'm happy having some toys and some "collectibles." I guess I'm just not a purist in either way.
Brian, I totally see where you're coming from and agree whole-heartedly. Toys often look totally awesome in their packages and I'm a bubble card fanatic through and through. And I'll be the first to say that the MOTUC packaging, from a design standpoint, is absolutely beautiful!In fact, there are a couple of toys that I still have in package, like my vintage LJN E.T. figure, and a certain Indiana Jones figure that you'll see in the next video.So, no, I'm not an Anti-MIB Nazi or anything.But my truer nature wants to see toys taken out of their "plastic prisons" and after about 3 months of staring at Wundar in his package, I thought it was time.
Whoa! I have a lot of catching up to do with your videos, man. I'm loving all of them.
Hahaha! Liko, I see you've been going through them on YouTube and commenting! You crack me up!
