    It's funny, I never had a big problem with the original head until this new one came out. It's such a vast improvement where I didn't know we needed one, though, that now I really do feel the old one...

    Looking at the last twenty years or so, Mattel's prices are almost always inflated. When the 200x line was on the shelves at retailers, you could easily compare two similar lines: MOTU and Marvel...

    Grandson of Mego, then?:hmlol:

    Folks, myself included, refer to any figure like this as "Mego-esque" percisely because it is the descendant of that style of figure. In evolutionary terms, Mego is...

    Older stuff usually hasn't been a problem for me, as Windows normally allows you to run something in compatibility mode (basically running it as though it was an earlier version of Windows). THat's...

    I think they ALL have the too long crotch piece; that's been the problem. They HAD to do the skirts, because doing a trunk piece like Tallstar would look bad with that part. But a new mold would have...

    Even though I never liked the whole King Grayskull storyline (terribly diminishes He-Man), since we have him and Battle Lion in the line, it would seem a quite incomplete little set without Veena....

    That is a point, although I believe the torso has been re-used, and there was always the possibility of other troopers with different heads down the line. These are true one and done molds; I don't...

    I've come to refer to the current version as "Windows Hate." My problem is that the basic Windows system up through 7 served my purposes, meaning it allowed me to fairly easily do what I wanted to...

    As an old Mego man, I like the general style, but I'm not a fan of Miller's hulked out Batman at all, so that and the price tag pretty much make this one a pass. If they made a standard Neal Adams...

    I think they will sell, but if they made these with the expectations of folks doing a lot of army building and making multiple purchases, they may wind up being unpleasantly surprised. Sell, yes,...

    Flutterina and Sweet Bee pretty well serve as fairies. And Man-E disguised himself fully as Beast Man in one episode, as I recall. Imp was a major character, so you can't discount him as a...

    If the "skirt" had been designed like Tallstar's trunks instead (which is what folks have been asking for for years now), there would be no problem. TS' legs moved as well as any skirted figure, and...

    They do look good, and I'm not surprised that the torso is hollow; basically, all of the MOTUC figures are made that way (most such action figures are). It sounds like the plastic may be thinner, but...
  14. Much as I like these, the price is going to make...

    Much as I like these, the price is going to make a difference. I was considering at least two sets (if Matty doesn't have the price set at $350 or so when I log in, like Spirit of Grayskull :hmwink:...

    I'm glad to see it go through, and do so only falling a tenth of a percentage point short. The figures are all well done, and I think that had a lot to do with pushing it over the edge. Even some...

    Got both of them.

    Huntara: The expression is a little soft for the character, but the face sculpt is beautiful. A great looking figures overall, no fudging on the costume details. I do wish they'd...
  17. I think we are getting the head pack rather than...

    I think we are getting the head pack rather than an extra figure due to all of the new tooling I'm seeing on the 6 regular figures. Even thoug there's a good deal of existing body parts being being...

    I'm a fan of the property itself; my first encounter with He-Man was his DC Comics Presents premiere. I've followed all the toons and lines. I'll always be a Filmation guy first and foremost, but I'm...

    This is the most important point, methinks. The figures we've seen so far are extraordinarily well done, and worth adding to the line regardless of which era you prefer.

    An early DCD Flash came with the treadmill and Kid Flash in his original costume (Flash's costume shrunk down). This one looks much better.

    Nice find. That was a very cool and very underrated line (and cartoon).

    Admittedly never watched those; have to check them out.

    Went back and computed mine; I'm paying 16.09 for shipping of four figures. By comparison, a couple months ago I got Tung, NA She-Ra, Arrow, and three 7" NECA classic Planet of the Apes figures form...

    Got mine early this morning for Huntara and Oo-Larr. I'm hoping there are no great romantic night spots in Sparks for the two to visit, or the shipment may take even longer than usual...:hmlol:

    Missed that part. I was assuming if it was Mar-Vell, this was just his introduction and he'd be back. Still, this kind of paves the way for Captian Marvel in the future, as we have now officially...

    Considering where his talent started, that wouldn't be hard.:hmlol:

    Seriously, what has he appeared in that shows said improvement? He was pure, lifeless cardboard in Jupiter Ascending (but, to be...

    I think with hitting the 450 K mark, there's a good chance these will be available in enough quantity to go up on the Fab Four's store (save the KS exclusives), so I may wind up grabbing a few I...

    He would require a few new pieces, but I can see the Trap Jaw boots (I know, way overused, but really close to what we see here), and the He-Ro "loincloth" would pass muster if the belt was part of...
