Masters of the Universe Lunchbox

I’ve been on a bit of a retro lunchbox kick lately, and recently added this little gem to my collection.

I will share my Twinkees with the first person that can name all the characters on this metallic piece of art!

    I’ve been getting a lunchbox urge too. I have some good space on top of cabinets in my kitchen and I think lunchboxes would look good displayed there. I think I’m going to stick to just 1970s lunchboxes and properties that I liked in that decade. Otherwise there are just too many to choose.

  2. I’m trying to set up parameters on my own lunchbox collection as well. I was trying to stick with metal only, but I’ve run across a small handful of plastic ones I couldn’t pass up (Star Wars, Super Mario Bros., Chuck E. Cheese). The going (non-collector) rate seems to be around $10 for ones without Thermoses, and $20 for those with — give or take, depending on the license. I pay a little more for some and not as much for others, depending on condition. As for licenses and stuff, I’m mostly just sticking with retro licences I liked or loved. There are too many of them out there to collect them all.

  3. Ug, plastic lunchboxes. I had 2 plastic ones as a kid, some “normal” type one (square shape, opens to a perfect slope) which I can’t remember what license it was, and a double decker styled dukes of hazzard one (the style like you see construction workers in old cartoons use, with the thermos clipped into the top half). The regular styled one was bland as you can get. I loved the style of the dukes of hazard one, but it broke pretty quickly.

    I had a metal heman lunchbox once, as well as a transformers one, a pacman one, a snoopy one, and I seem to recall a smurf one (although the smurf one might be the aforementioned “normal” plastic one).
