my name is Wendy de Boer and I come from Holland (a tiny country
next to Germany). I'm now 18 years old, but I used to watch
He-Man when I was about five years old.
He-Man was never on Dutch television. I had to watch Sky Channel,
which was in English, and I didn't understand a lot of it.
At that time I only knew a few English words and I could count
to ten, which I was very proud of.
I didn't know much of what they were saying, but I really
liked the cartoon, especially Skeletor. Of course, I realized
he was the bad guy, but that's what I liked about him (I've
always been a little weird, you know) and to me he looked
the coolest of all the characters.
really wished I had a few of the action figures, but my parents
kept buying me Barbie dolls and Lady Lovelylocks and stuff.
My classmates had them, though, but they didn't want to play
with a girl.
hadn't though about He-Man for years, but when I started to
explore the Net, I decided to look for He-Man sites. I was
very happy to find out what He-Man was really about. This
year I finally saw the He-Man movie too.
I'm working on my own figure: a Skeletor doll standing about
15 inch tall, which I'm crocheting out of blue wool. Sounds
crazy? Well, I already made my own Spawn figure and it looks
really cool. So, Skeletor wouldn't be much of a problem. Maybe
I'll send a picture when it's finished.
