My thoughts on When He-Man and Skeletor will resurface
Ok, so I was one of those that was fortunate enough to pick up He-Man and Beastman with my Skeletor in the great shopping cart glitch of '09. :sklol:
Even so, I can't help but wonder if/when He-Man and Skeletor will resurface.
Then I got to thinking about my childhood experience with the original MOTU. I think the likely thing to occur will be that the next time we see He-Man and Skeletor, they will be wearing their original BATTLE ARMOR.
I don't know about you guys, but the Battle Armor played a bigger part of my childhood than the classic looks did. I think probably because I broke the originals..:hmsad:
I have no doubt that the classic looks will return (possible packaged with Battle Cat and Panthor), but I think we'll see the original variants first.
New Versions of HM/Skelly- what would you rather have?
I was thinking........In the near future, we will probably get a BA Skelly and BA Heman. The facts right now are we only get 1 new figure per month, already have He-Man and Skeletor, and will definitly see a re-release of the original two.
when the new battle versions come around, what would you rather have mattel do??
-have mattel give us all new versions of He-Man and Skeletor within the normal monthly schedule at $20 a pop. if you were to get it this way, all versions of HM and Skelly (BA's, TC, DB, TP, FF, LL's) would use up 8 months.
-Have mattel give us all new versions of He-Man and Skeletor within the normal monthly schedule at $20 a pop but also sell a 2nd figure within the same month a Skelly or HM is being sold so fans can get something "newer" instead of a variant of HM or Skelly using up the month.
-Have Mattel give us a new "base" version of He-Man and Skeletor and make it deluxe at say a $30 price point, each figure will include "snap on" armor and parts to complete all the versions. so for example, one new version of skeletor will come with battle armor parts, laser light, terror claws, dragon blaster, etc. this would include all variations of armor, capes, etc. This would take up 2 months of the schedule and all versions of He-Man and Skeletor would be finished. Mattel then can sell the original re-releases of He-man and Skeletor and if fans want, they can buy extra HM/Skellys to make single versions of the different variants.
