I'm not a collector of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe toys (since I never really watched the series as a kid), but I thought I'd mention this here- I was looking through an antique mall the other day and found a number of He-Man toys for sale- of course, all of them were out of their boxes and had no accessories, but it was still fun to see He-Man, Skeletor, Man-E-Faces and others that are now vaguely familiar to me thanks to all the reviews on this site Wink , but I can't recall their names. Of course, I also found a Mumm-Ra toy from the "ThunderCats" cartoon (the original '80s one, that is)- and that show I did watch as a kid and so that was fun to find. (Of course, Mumm-Ra didn't have his red hood on though). And I found a Hawkman toy from the 1980s "Super Powers" line- I remember seeing ads for that toy line as a kid in the comics and it was one of the coolest toy lines for superheroes I'd ever seen- still is, really.
Oh yeah- and some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys from the original '80s cartoon [some of which I already still have at home Smile ].
I didn't buy anything (though I will admit, I was tempted to grab up some of the Turtles toys and Hawkman....) but I didn't really have the time or money. Anyway, it was just a fun '80s toy story and I thought I'd share. Cool

Thanks for sharing, I would have really liked to see the He-man and Thundercat action figures, especially that Hawkman.

Ha- nice to see someone appreciated this post. (The "Ha" is just for the fact that it's three years old now- lol. But in rereading the post, I can actually remember making that visit now- though the items are long since sold by now of course.) Very Happy Cool

Absolutely, I noticed I was a little late, but definitely appreciate the nostalgia.

That's cool- yeah, I always enjoy finding cool things like that at antique malls and such. I can't always afford to buy anything (or I just don't honestly have an interest in owning everything either)- but I generally like to at least take pictures of cool 1980s toys (and other items from other eras as well) that I run across.
