Toy Hunter’s Log: The Great Rebellion

Personal Notes: If there was one toy line that I had originally collected the most when I was growing up, it would have been the original Masters of the Universe line by Mattel. I remember watching the Filmation cartoon show a lot, going to the shopping mall with my mom and getting the latest MOTU figure. I admit that I never had any of the Princess of Power items, but enjoyed the crossover storylines with He-Man, She-Ra and the associated cast of characters.

In the past year or so, I have had the good fortune of reclaiming many of those vintage Masters of the Universe figures/vehicles/playsets either from flea markets or at my local comic book/toy shop (Giant Robot Comics). On this day at the flea market, the Great Rebellion would join my toy collection.

The elderly couple that I had purchased this Princess of Power lot from had a daughter who had kept all her old toys in really good condition. A majority of the figures had all their accessories, plus their mini-comic! Here is the list of figures I bought:

  • She-Ra
  • Swiftwind
  • Bow
  • Glimmer
  • Angella
  • Frosta
  • Catra
  • Double Trouble
  • The Crystal Castle Playset was also in very good shape, with all of the furniture and only missing the flag!

As a Masters of the Universe fan, it was a good journey to the flea market that day!
