Like I said before I am fixing it now, it is not final!
We are still making fixes and adjustments.
Man I can empathase, the filmation He-man head is a very hard to capture likeness,
a few tweaks here and there and you've pritty much got it though...
how big is this going to be ?,
Could you use the sword, head for motuc customs?
Cheers Joe nice job
Fans were right about the chin, actually it was the wrong shape.
I hope I can you show you pics soon!
It is NOT in scale with the figures at all. The statue is much bigger.
Cheers Joe ,
Yeah, the jawline is the main thing, and the spacing of the eyes. The hair is dead on, and I think this is the first time I've ever seen anyone get those eyebrows EXACTLY right (thickest at the crest and thinner at the ends).
As it is, I don't like it due to the face, but if it's tweaked a little, and the price is right, I would buy it, it's probably the closest thing I'll see to an official Filmation He-Man, with the Filmation Sword at that. I just hope someday Mattel does an official Filmation Power Sword in a weapons pack or with a figure....plenty of Filmation dudes coming to pack that bad boy in with.
New pics from the main page of the Org...
Looks much better, but still a bit off...
Will still get it and probably re-paint it...
Not to knock the work put into it, but it feels zero like Filmation He-Man and 100% like Hanna Barbara He-Man. It's a fun-looking piece though.
If the sword is removable, and fits in a classics figure's hand, I'm getting one.
The face is totally wrong, the forearms are to long and the muscles are not correct :(
Sorry to say that but this is the ugliest He-man statue I've ever seen...
Much better--I assume the arm/wrist will be straight up, though, right?
Hmmmm, I don't get all the hate, I think it's coming along nicely!
I'm excited for these!
Face looks good but the body seems disproportionate. Hope it's not the final design.
Not bad, the body seems a bit out of proportion, but I do like the simplistic design and how it almost looks Hanna Barbera-ish.
The right arm seems way too big for the body and the face doesn't look right. Can no one sculpt an accurate looking filmation he-man???
Filmation is definitely a tough one to transform into 3D. I know I wouldn't want to try it... if I actually possessed the skills to sculpt, which I don't. :tblol:
I am actually pretty pleased and will be pre-ordering one :)
Its up on my store for presale (don't ask for the link since this is not the marketplace, it should be self explanatory but you can pm me if you need info) now for $3 cheaper than almost anyone else, glad to support AFX and Icon Heroes again!
Filmation He-Man yes.....but I don't want a bust. Especially at $60.
AFX announced an SDCC exclusive variant with axe and shield:

Cast in high quality polystone, the He-Man Mini Bust Paperweight stands approximately 10 inches tall from the bottom of the base to the tip of the axe. This makes a great addition to any desktop or Masters of the Universe collection.
Available at the Action Figure Xpress Booth #3345.
Using Filmation model pictures from Carol Lundberg's post, I made a comparison shot of the bust with the face model pics:
He-Man Face - Profile and Front:
I think Joe did a great job on his bust, but there are definitely some adjustments that can be seen from the comparison pics that need to be made to a future attempt at the Filmation style.
1. The hair wave needs to be decreased.
2. Eye brows need to curve up more, and be thinner in the middle.
3. Less white around the eyes, more white within the pupils.
4. The jaw size very slightly increased.
5. Possibly most important, below the nose the profile should be flat, not slanted outward.
The bust is terrific, but would really like to see Joe try just the face again on a possible future project. If anyone can make an accurate Filmation He-Man, he can.
