For you Matty Collectors, there’s now an Unofficial Guide to collecting He-Man! My friend Rod who recently told me about this book, has not only donated one to Retro Con 2018, but he’ll be selling these at the Retro Con 2018! That’s perfect timing, for the guests we have lined up.. I not only speak of Melendy Britt, but also Larry Kenney, since this book also covers the Thundercat toys released by Matty Collectors!
The book includes all the figures, accessories, play set and vehicles released, has in-depth information about them, an index by year of release and an index by character name, it features gorgeous high-definition pictures, and also includes original bios for each character, and even some great customs and dioramas as “extras”. Last but not least, it includes an interview with Axel Giménez about his work on the line.
This is a bilingual book, printed in both English and Spanish, 288 full-color pages plus 2 color inside covers, printed on 80 lb weight, matte-coated paper in a gorgeous 8.27″ x 11.69″ format.
The exciting news is that through a special arrangement with the main author, David Sullyvan, we have gained exclusive rights to make a highly limited print run of the second edition of this book to distribute in the USA. The print run is limited to 100 copies.
The book will be exclusively available at toy shows and toy collecting conventions in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, through local dealers like Cargo Hold Collectibles and Digital Realm Models and Toys. There will be a poster with the book cover on display by it. Cost at the shows will be $50 if paying in cash or with a money order.
The books are also available for sale through PayPal (fulfillment through media mail) in the USA. These are marked up to $58 to account for shipping costs, paypal fees, mailer/packing materials and handling time. The books are in hand and will ship within 5 business days of receiving payment. If you want a book, send me a PM with your paypal address and I will send you an invoice.
And now some cool photos from the collector’s book!
