Just days before Christmas, I found an inexpensive Snake Armor He-Man. Of course, they don’t stay inexpensive for long. But amazingly, I was the only one to bid on it. So now, my son and I own (in theory…hasn’t arrived yet) a Snake Armor He-Man action figure.
I’m trying to keep my excitement contained until the package arrives. Hard as it is to believe, there are unscrupulous people out there that will prey on your hopes and dreams. But we have waited a very long time for this toy. We have been patient and have avoided paying $50+ on several occasions.
For less than $30, we got the power of Grayskull!
It’s interesting to see what generates the most traffic for this little blog from day to day. It’s usually a baseball post, but sometimes it’s an older post that is just popular, seemingly out of the blue. Of course, once I dig a little deeper, I can usually figure out why so many new people are coming here for the same reason.
Yesterday the most popular post was “2009 Topps Thundercats.” My son had done a series of Thundercats custom cards based on the 2009 Topps baseball design.
Many of you know that Cartoon Network will be airing a new Thundercats series beginning in 2011. But that news was announced in June…why the sudden interest in December? The reason is simple: a new voice actor has been announced recently, and that has renewed the buzz around the series.
I’m really looking forward to the new Thundercats and hope CN doesn’t screw it up like they did He-Man (IOW, they need to actually promote the show and not just hope the toys do it for you…even if those toys are totally awesome).
Speaking of He-Man toys…anyone got a Snake Armor He-Man they want to dump cheap? I can’t justify spending more than $40 on a toy that is going to be played with…a lot. My 11-year old has wanted it since we saw it on eBay several years ago, but we’ve never seen it for less than $75 after shipping. I just can’t do it with a clear conscience. We don’t care if it has been opened, or if you don’t have the original packaging. We just want the toy.
If you want to make a little boy’s Christmas extra special with Snake Armor He-Man, let me know.
