Re: RichD's other collection


Rich, I think your right

The two thin ones may also, but the ground work doesn't look like these are direct fits. Is there possible another piece that would have been in between them?

Re: RichD's other collection


Going back so I could see the whole pictures on the thin ones I can see one fits above the other so they are long ways together. The man at arms and castle greyskull on top with the heman, skeletor, beastman piece at bottom.

Yup. So now I guess whenever I finally display them I gotta figure a way to line up the ones that go together.....#collectorproblems emoticon

That bell display is stunning. Your right it certainly shows the appeal of this line and why it is loved so much. Congrats on getting all of the 3d displays completed. Any chance of a large group picture of the 3d ones? Just curious how much of your display room is being taken up by these. emoticon



Agreed! The bell display, Rich, magnificent!!

Also seems like this shelf talker might have been part of the same display scheme. Same characters and colors and such. Seem like a reasonable assumption?

Re: RichD's other collection


Reasonable to assume they are all same time frame. If used in conjunction the large would be like a cap header so on the top while the shelf talker was on the shelf itself? It may have been they just offered different sized displays to retailers depending on the retailers needs. It would be neat to see if pics exist of the toy isles at this time frame. I know lots of pics exist of star wars displays but they predate this time period. Maybe a heman forum would have some pics?

Re: RichD's other collection


Unfortunately I've not been able to find any toy store photos of MOTU displays. There's one that's been floating around but doesn't show any display items. The search continues!

Re: RichD's other collection


I cant find any photos of these displays specifically. I have been looking and found a few of the displays in collections. There are a ton of old store display photos but I don't see these in them anywhere.

This link is a google search showing store stock displays, a few motu in there, but nothing with these specific pieces that I can see.

This is where someone has some and asks about them, but doesn't get an answer.

Here is one panel that someone framed, it is possible they were framed but I doubt it, and imagine this was framed at a later time.

Here is someone speculating on the use of the longer ones.

I followed one of these back to its home page and found a section of store displays.

Really cool castle greyskull one in there and the giant 2 sided heman you have is also in there.

Can also see the giant one here with some others.

Apparently the giant one has slots on the planet that they would put the price in so they could advertise the prices.
