It is time to once again open the vault of memories according to the minion!
Today we will visit one of my favorite properties as a kid, but not the version that I grew up with! The year was 2002 and I was still relatively new to being homeless. This was a time that anything from my childhood would be a welcome comfort. One day I went into a comic book shop in San Francisco (Jeffrey's) and found wave 1 of the MOTU 200X line. I Cannot remember who I bought but know that I got some from there. In 2003 I believe, I went back to GA and lost all my MOTU figures (and others) but once I returned I ended up rebuilding them (and most of them I still have from then with the exceptions of the slime pit and monster, Blaster hawk vehicle, and Snake helmet Skeletor that came with the Wolf armor He-Man. I was able to replace Man At Arms recently and BAttle Sound Skeletor was from Brother Midnight, but still miss my Beast Man and Merman!
Finally you have Kobra Khan (who will always be a minion of Skeletor and NOT a snakeman to me lol! Behind him is Trap Jaw!
So that is a look at my 200X display and some memories with my figures. These are some of the very few figures that I managed to keep throughout being homeless (and might actually be the only ones to be quite honest here).
It would be many years later until I would be able to see the series (though I manage to see a few episodes) in its entirety and I have to say that I actually preferred it over the original BUT I still LOVE the original more than most cartoons.
I guess that is it for today as the minion is telling me to wrap this up....
More to com soon....
