The toys weren't that hard to find here. Some waves were harder than others, and the Snakeman repaints hung around like a bad smell, so some retailers were slow to stock after that.

I saw a commercial of the toys once and went toy hunting immediately. I could only find Variants of He-Man and Skeletor and also had to buy them online.

Nobody wanted to be known as a lord of the gays, so that was that (seriously, that's about how I remember the quiet dying of He-Man's popularity). Ninja Turtles somehow avoided that stigma with other boys.
Only snobbish geek adults say He-Man is gay. I really don't know where that came from. I suppose it's these types of people condemning aspects of their childhood they don't find cool any more.

Nope. Pretty much every kid on the playground would say that when I was like 12.

When kids are 12 they're generally not thinking about He-Man because they're not kids any more, they're teens.

A 12 year old by definition, is not a teen

Close though since 13 is the beginning of being a teen.

By the age of 11, I began feeling ashamed for watching cartoons.

You go through that a bit but guess what? By the time you reach your 30s you begin to appreciate your childhood more.

I wouldn't exactly use a 14 year old's behaviour as an insult if I were you. All you do here is piss and moan like a spastic 5 year old once a week because people dare to make fun of a cheap toy commercial meant to trick children.

Oh, and by the way, I post here several times a week, take a guess how many people are frequently bothered by me taking jabs at the Fred Wolf cartoon or calling it a cheap toy commercial? It's you, it's you and you alone. Nobody else thinks it's offensive of me to say any of this, it's just you.

Actually people here have called you out on your trolling before. Not sure why you take part in FW threads if only to troll with "what's the point guys!" I mean this is coming from a fan of the IDW comic where the Turtles are reincarnated! Yeah of course the Fred Wolf show is nothing but a 'cheap toy commercial' which I'd be saying if the IDW comic wasn't a more bastardization of the franchise. But guess what? I'm not so high and mighty that I have anything against the IDW comic. Not a fan of it so I don't post hate messages on the threads, simples. I'll leave you with this:

Hate? It's a show meant for 5 year olds and my comments don't go beyond questioning quality or making jabs, you're one who keeps taking offense at it. You're being melodramatic over nothing.

Just consider this. You're 30+ year old man who use 14 year old as an insult for people who question the quality of a cheap show meant for 5 year olds, you're old enough to have teenage kids and you get mad when someone makes fun of something you watched when you were still learning how to read. You realise how sad and pathetic that is, right?

Well, Herman does lug around an upside down garbage container full of guns, he doesn't have the stealth advantage.

Yeah. Proper punctuation, spelling, and grammar are crucial. Lately some of the writing on the Drome has gotten pretty bad.
