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.
Here we have a stellar first release Faker paired with the He-Man Meets Ram-Man comic. As advanced MOTU collectors are well-aware, the 8-back Faker is nearly impossible to find with a clear or near-clear bubble. Almost every example that has surfaced is plagued with an extremely yellow bubble. Our example, miraculously, exhibits only a very faint tint and presents beautifully. Equipped with desirable subgrades of 80 and above, this is one of the nicest examples of a first release Faker to have ever hit the open market. We expect high-end collectors to battle hard over this magnificent specimen. Encapsulated by AFA (80y, 80-85-85), #1175574
