    In principle it's worth pushing for figures you want. In practice you have to be realistic about the demand.

    To my mind a much more important variant would be He-Man as illustrated in the Gary...

    I have no desire to "go hunting" for items that should be readily available. There is no joy in getting geoblocked or having to resort to paying a 400% mark up to someone on Ebay. Surely it isn't too...

    Agreed. It doesn't increase 'excitement'. The word they're looking for is 'irritation'. In Mattyland they probably think geoblocking is orgasmic.

    This shows why Mattel are missing a trick by not going to retail and marketing this property properly.
  5. I'd rather have the original version from the...

    I'd rather have the original version from the 1984 annual - basically 'Blue Orko' - no clothing decoration.
  6. Original canon and box art = male; Filmation...

    Original canon and box art = male; Filmation canon (for the most part) = female. I don't think there has been a strong commitment one way or the other in Classics. Probably best to stick to your...

    I hadn't read that, but if that's the statement it doesn't make a lot of sense. I've successfully bought items within moments of them coming on sale during madly busy days on several occasions, and...

    I don't recall reading that but don't doubt it. I have read Scott say that fans are welcome to take it or leave it because what counts is what is in fans' imagination.

    But that's actually a...

    I'm not worried about solving a 30 year mystery or any aspect of the biography, but I am looking forward to receiving the figure (probably in a month's time).

    What I do find intriguing is how...

    I wondered if that might be an issue again. Hopefully the TunnelBear solution should solve this.

    I'm not convinced an entire year of Filmation would appeal to enough people, particularly if they are already released characters. I'm torn on this - I'm not a Filmation fan but don't dislike what...

    That was my first thought. It seems logical.

    I'm just waiting for the fallout caused by "Anything is technically feasible". I can hear people reaching for their pitchforks now.

    As did TG, but fortunately we ended up with a sensible version which looked like the minicomic illustrations.

    The orange version was subsequently only mentioned as a possible variant. In my...

    Oh where to start? I'm not keen on pretty much all of them, but the aspect I don't like the most is when important minicomic origins are ignored. Tri-Klops is the obvious one; Modulok a more recent...

    I guess my perspective is focussed on those characters which weren't originally made into figures. Yes TRU Mer-Man could count, although his enforced limited availability was not the way a...

    I haven't looked at this thread for a while, so apologies for not making a comment sooner. Firstly, welcome to He-Man.org, and secondly, thank you for posting the link. The artwork shown in that...

    And yet it's the POP sub that's allegedly in trouble.

    Of course all of this discussion is based on hype, speculation and propaganda. Standard Mattel practice that we're all used to.

    The sub...

    Definitely not. The vintage line occupied a corner of the 1980s and is a complete entity that you can't go back and tamper with. Additions and updates is the Classics' remit. Besides, they didn't get...

    Maybe it's a simplistic view, but to my mind POP has always been about colour and MOTU has always been about detail. Dolls versus action figures etc., etc.
  23. Good point. Bearing in mind the plan is now...

    Good point. Bearing in mind the plan is now complete for this year and next, I don't get why people think there is still masses of work to do to wrap up the vintage characters. The work has already...

    It's about time the roots of the MOTU were honoured. That means minicomic variants of the eight-backs, the palace guards from the minicomics and the monsters (especially the glorm and blue demon).
    ...

    I don't know if I can give a decisive answer for that. I'm at the stage where my interest is waning because most of the characters I want have been made. I also don't think a dollar or two is a huge...

    Well you can't force love.

    The dislike of NA has several causes, and the reasons go back a long way. Poor figure selection may be a part of it, but by contrast many people have said how much they...

    One issue I've had since the start of this line is the wonky sculpting. Pretty much every buck suffers from it. The standard male buck has broader ribs on one side than the other. Other body types...
  28. This was what I hoped would happen before...

    This was what I hoped would happen before Classics came along. But now we have Classics, the appeal of the old figures reissued is less for me. I wouldn't say no, but I probably wouldn't collect them...
  29. The eight-back selection would be of interest to...

    The eight-back selection would be of interest to me, but the price seems high for a single mould piece. I'd like to have all eight, but at a more reasonable price. $40 would be about right - I'd have...

    Likewise. Good for the POP fans, but still nothing for the pre-Filmation fans. It's extraordinary that this far into the line we've only had Procrustus, the Goddess and a spare Skeletor head. Even NA...
