I would not think twice about buying a Filmation He-Man. I'm sure 4H would do him justice!
Hmmm.... I love Filmations and all but to have a variant that's less detailed and less sculpted as such kinda makes me want to pass on it. The figures should have more detailing than thier toon counterparts. :hmgrin:
Honestly, I want all Filmation core characters & I would love to see them coming in this format :
1) Skeletor, 2) Hordak, 3) Teela, 4) Evil-Lyn, 5) Prince Adam, 6) Mer Man, 7) Beast Man, & IF NEEDED : 8) Man-At-Arms & Tri-Klops !
I dont mind seeing them with few extra details (like He-Man Bracers & design tights ETC)
I'll buy all this in NO TIME!!!!
Well, a big pass for me. I kinda hated the way that He-Man was portrayed in the cartoon. I also don't see the differences from his animated model to his MOTUC figure being sufficent to justify a new figure, sorry.
Just do him, not!
I want an Alcala He-Man head for my Alcala Skeletor:hmwink:
I'd buy plenty of Filmation Characters. My childhood has always been based on the bulky toys & the influence of the 80's cartoon. Very excited & I welcome w/ open arms all Filmation characters. Hell, I'd think it'd be neat to have a Filmation sticker on it. I know, enough w/ all the stickers. Don't know if that would be possible.
In my reasoning, and by all means, my reasoning alone I believe that Demo-Man is a GREAT example of this concept:
Release a figure, but inclued three to four "pieces", not using the term attachments/accesories, we've seen this with the Goddess figure as well, it can be Oo-Lar or another similar figure/or one that coincieds with a bio; That has certain "pieces" to construct an already exsisting figure, as with Demo-Man including Alcala Skeletor head, and release a figure that will give fans what they want, a Filmation He-Man head and a Harness with a sheath Attachment, the sword could be included with a future Weapons Pak or the figure itself.
I agree and support this idea. I consider the Filmation versions of He-Man and Skeletor more iconic than the vintage toy versions (and definitely more than 200x). Honestly if Mattel has no problem creating a comic-style Skeletor head for Demo Man, I don't see why this would be any different.
Is This Thread Died ?
I thought the Support for Filmation variants are MORE !!!
There are VERY few filmation repaints i would actually buy. Most of the time, the toy versions were vastly superiour ANYWAY...
However, I DO have a soft spot in my heart for Filmation He-man and Skeletor. I would buy them in a heartbeat.
Also want a Filmation Mer-man... and the Right armor for MAA... Seriously... SOME varient of him HAS to get the full armor :hmsad:
I dont know. I want a Filmation Skeletor Head, but I feel like the TRU He-Man was enough "filmation He-Man" for me.
Filmation Hordak is far more important and neccessary, with a Skeletor Filmation head being second.
A "Filmation" He-Man just feels quite unneccesary comared to many other things. I may feel different if I didnt have the TRU He-Man.
Oh, and consider the repaint point that Matty makes. You wouldnt be getting that new sculpt stuff. And even with a new head it just isnt enough to warrent a new fig.
Here's my attempt at a FILMATION HE-MAN!! He's my definite HE-MAN for my collection!! I would still definitely buy a official Mattel Filmation He-Man!! Attachment 98576
I honestly have no desire for a FILMation He-Man variant ... for me it would be a waste of money.
The only FILMation variants I would consider for my own collection would be someone like Clawful, whose design was different enough from his vintage look that he could be an entirely different character. He-Man, Skeletor, Man-at-Arms, Teela ... FILMation variants of these guys do nothing for me.
A couple "classics-ized" FILMation heads thrown in here and there could be cool though (Mer-Man comes to mind) ...
I would absolutely love a filmation he-man. I always wished as a kid my he-man figure looked like the cartoon more. I'm totally on board with this!
