HE-Man Masters of Universe Changes Tag?

Post by Fatandyz » Thu Nov 10, 2011 10:20 pm

I'm guessing this is a vintage MOTU iron-on patch that has been placed on a later Changes shirt. The iron-on is dated 1983. Am I right on this one?

I think that the Changes shirt could be from around the same time 83/84. I do not think itcwas added too far afterwards. I think it is within reason. He-Man freakin' rules.

Hmmmm- Yeah, Changes seems more late 90s even early 00s to me....does the pit to pit for a L seem quite big for an 80s tee?

Pit to Pit is 19"

The shirt is in amazing condition. Looks like a never worn.

I think you're original assessment is right - whenever I've seen Changes it's all about throwback and vintage-esque - I have a Thundercats changes jersey that I'm pretty sure is early 00s...never known Changes have any tees actually from the 80s...anyone?

Something to keep an eye out for I guess.

Wish their website wasn't so throwback ha

Looking at some past pics of items I've had...I was reminded of a Three Stooges t-shirt I had from 1991 that was a changes tag. I also have a Kermit The Frog 1991 tee that has a changes tag.

I haven't seen anything earlier than 1991. Still hoping for someone to provide evidence that changes was around in '83...but I'm pretty sure it's not out there

I had a Batman with an '89 copyright on it. I don't know though if that was a true date of production or if it's similar to the Snoopy tees and it's the last time the copyright was renewed, or whatever. The graphic was. Totally 80s though- with some "punk rockers" on it.

Yeah, a lot of the time throwback type t-shirts use the original copyright date on them. Saw a recent Bill and Teds Adventure tee like this and a Back To The Future.
