It's a major drawback for me. Allthough I voted: I would be more interested in MotUC if they did not reuse parts." because I will get them anyways. I think it's a cheap way to produce figures with a steep pricetag.
I don't get the nostalgic feel of production restrictions of the 80's. For me the nostalgic feel lies in the original figures which I allready have. It just feels like a huge step back and I am really surprised people are going with it.
I agree with Lioncourt on this...
That and what MegaGearMax said before:

If they gave Man-At-Arms an armored body it wouldn't matter to me.
Repaint Merman into Stinkor & give him Meckaneck's armor, I'm cool.
Paint Beastman green & flock him, works for me.
I'm a simple man. There were things that bugged me about the 2002 figures but I bought 'em all & cherished 'em all the same. I did it back in the '80s & I'll do it again now.
Amen, because when you get down to it, reusing parts keeps costs down, the line lives longer, and we have new He-Man toys!!! :hmgrin: :skgrin:

The New Adventures stuff kept the line alive longer too back in the late '80's and early '90's, but the compromises and changes to the line made it an unfair trade. I couldn't care less about NA, and mostly wish it didn't exist. That is not the case with the reuse of parts. I'm just pointing out that those should not be the reasons why you go along with anything in MotU.

I cant imagine characters like Clawful or Webstor looking very good compared to the 200X designs if they are just repaints with different heads and armour. Monstor type characters really need different sculpts to do them justice.
I don't mind the reuse, but when we get to 200X (not if, when) I want to see reuses that make sense for the aesthetic of the characters (such as He-Man's torso on Hordak), but I don't want the furry pants, I want the 200X style belt.
I don't mind one way or another with regard to everything else.
When I was a kid part reuse bothered me. It didn't make sense to me that MAA was just as buff as He-Man.
Now I'm fine with it.
'I couldn't care less' was my vote, even though the first 'positive' choice applies as well.
They've reused parts since the vintage line. New tooling is expensive and frequently unnecessary. I, for one, am happy that there's a Classics line at all, so this is what I call a non-issue.:hmlol:
great idea nostalgia glasses and makes this line possible
