We are privileged to present an extraordinary collection of early release Series One “8-backs” from the wildly popular Masters of the Universe toyline. These iconic action figures, released in 1982, were consigned from a single collection that was carefully curated over several years. “8-Backs”, featuring the original eight characters on the reverse, are considered “Holy Grails” in the MOTU collecting community.
The most important and recognizable carded action figure in the entire MOTU line, we are pleased to present the icon: He-Man. Collectors from a wide range of collecting categories have been patiently waiting for quite some time for a quality early release 8-back He-Man to surface. The wait is now over! Our example, paired with The Vengeance of Skeletor comic, boasts an impeccable card, bubble, and figure. Examples which have survived in such great condition as the presented copy are, in fact, incredibly scarce. With crystal clear bubble that retains perfect form, our example is one of the most appealing specimens we have ever laid eyes on. A glorious tribute to the superstar of the MOTU franchise and one of the top pieces in the entire auction. Encapsulated by AFA (80, 80-85-90), #10202344
Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000
