I wouldn't buy any SOH figures
Vintage Toy Mer-Man (with green Whiplash forearms and Kobra Khan boots)
Calix for me
Lord Masque +1
Mask of Power Demons +1
I got in at the beginning, and have good memories of thumbing through the Alcala mini comics and the first golden books (especially The Trap and Thief of Castle Grayskull). So He-Man was established...
Lodar was originally named Zodac. The people doing the comic used the name, not knowing there was an actual Zodac figure with a specific look. So, they went back and altered the name Zodac in the...
Technically we got Lodar way back at the beginning of the line.
I'm pretty sure it is shading. There is lighter green on the teeth and helmet, and the dark within the creases of the castle looks too dark to be natural shadow to me.
I think this is a picture...
The ones shown in the commercial do have shading, but it's applied intelligently, in the actual creases of the sculpt (like the Classics version).
The production version was much, much sloppier...
They're re-running the old show
I guess they added that part to give the movie some tension. That doesn't happen in the book.
I called it early. Just sayin. :hmtung:
Not reversed. Defective bicep, just like Modulok.
Called it first! :hmtung:
Not reversed, just a bad connection in the joint. Just like Modulok. Or possibly a malformed bicep with an upper opening that is too wide.
Who knows? I haven't really followed the bios closely. I don't think they're worthy of the property, although I do appreciate the attempt to try to harmonize the various canons over the years. In the...
I'm not sure history has borne this one out :hmtung:
No thanks. Both versions of him of him look cheesy.
Given the results of polls about fan demanded figures and about SOH specifically, I'd say only a few dozen people are actually into the Son of He-Man concept.
Now that's a horse of a different color.
You're right - it does very heavily recall James Bond Jr. :hmlol:
The short hand name for the property has always been "He-Man." That's more well known than Masters of the Universe.
The problem isn't just Dare replacing his old man. It's also that the idea of...
Nah, that's not really true. He-Man is still a household name. Otherwise Honda wouldn't be using him in their ads to invoke nostalgia. You can't be nostalgic for something you never heard of.
The other issue is that most people simply don't want Dare or Skeleteen in plastic form - at least not until 50-60 other more wanted figures are produced first.
But it looks like they're coming,...
Exactly. We've barely done anything at all with most of the supporting cast. Expanding the existing world is the way to go, not retiring all of the characters we love in favor of a failed pitch...
No, I haven't heard of any of those names, just like 99.5% of my fellow Americans. I've certainly heard of the big character names in comic books. Again, just like 99.5% of my fellow Americans....
The fact that you need to explain it to me really underlines my point for me.
On top of that, it doesn't sound like Wally West was ever marketed as "Son of Flash". He was just known as The Flash....
The only famous one of those is Frodo, and he's not "son of" a famous character.
I've heard of huntress, but I wasn't really aware that she was anyone's daughter in particular.
The rest just...
